Budget Announced for Legacy of the Confederation (LotC)

After careful review of anticipated project milestones, and the various subcontracted labor required to bring LotC to fruition for episodes 1, 2, and 3, the approved budget for LotC is:

$85,000

This amount is inclusive of what has been spent to date (during the 2009 and 2010 development cycles) as well as future expenditures, and does not take into consideration soft costs (time spent by one or more team members without compensation) . The LotC production team will provide P&L breakouts of how the money is being spent so the community can track our progress against our launch milestones. We will break down these costs in a very granular fashion.

This budget requires no donations from the community, and the LotC single-player campaign is planned to have a free-to-play release to remain in compliance with the Blizzard Entertainment Custom Map / Mod terms and conditions.

Will there be a setup for a donation site for those of us who want to donate, or are you just not accepting donations period?

Blizzard's policies do allow for donations these days, vs. when they put a cease and desist order on my head some 15 years ago.

So it's possible. I'd like to release some real content first though either way. I don't want to take donations for hopes and dreams (e.g. vaporware). I want people to put their money behind something substantial and very real.

We'll see. Right now though, the best thing anyone can do is spread the word about LotC.

Destiny...Awaits

That is an insane amount of money. Although I wonder why you didn't just post that here instead of linking it.

I'm trying to condense all the updates to one place as the project moves forward and draws a larger crowd.

Well, this is impressive.
Voice actors don't come cheap. :P

Should you need any more voices just send me a message. I would do it for free. :)

That is very modest of you.
