I posted to crowdfunding with a recap of various crowdfunding projects and plans for the new year. (Last week) http://crowdfunding.livejournal.com/491657.html
Over at torn_world, I have posted an Introduction to the Project post, and a Meet-and-Greet for LJ users. Come say Hi! If you aren't watching this community, and you're the teeniest bit interested in Torn World, you should be - and this is a great time to start, as I will be starting some overview and backstory posts that will get us geared up for the big North-meets-South plotlines.
