Hey everyone!

 

We’ve recently pushed the release candidate for Issue 26 Page 5 to our Staging shards. If you have some time this weekend, please hop on over to the Staging shards and test it; the more testing that we can get done, the faster we can push it live! For more information on how to access the Staging shards and copy your characters check out the Beta FAQ.

 

As I’m sure most people are already well aware, it’s tax season! As such, this month we will be including our registered agent fee ($125) and LLC franchise tax ($300) in our donation target so that we can pay this at the start of April.

 


March 2020 Breakdown

Last month we accepted $5,380.78 in donations - $4.57 over our target for the month.

 

Here is the breakdown of what the January funds went towards:

  • $4,823.39 to OVH for our hosting
    • Another $15 will be charged in a few days as part of our March billing.
  • $375.30 to our lawyers for their services rendered through January 31st
  • $96.00 for our Google G-Suite Business account
    • + $12.83 for Google Voice
  • $30.00 for our 1&1 IONOS domain & outbound email service
  • $21.20 to Paperspace for an Air instance with a dedicated/static IP address
  • $10.00 for our Atlassian Jira Cloud instance (10-user)
  • $10.00 to Fontspring for a font desktop license
    • This is being used for some art assets
  • $9.73 for security / administration software
  • $3.03 to Transferwise
    • We are now being billed for wire transfers made through Transferwise. We currently use this service to wire transfer to our lawyers as it’s much cheaper than our bank!

April 2020

As previously stated, we will be including our annual LLC fees which consists of our registered agent’s fee (required in Delaware) and our LLC franchise tax. Additionally, we have received a new invoice from our primary law firm for their services rendered in February (plus some in January that weren’t in the previous invoice).

 

In total, the donation target for April 2020 is $6,543.49. Here is a breakdown of how the funds are allocated:

  • $4,838.39 to OVH for our hosting
  • $1,108.30 to our lawyers for their services through February 31st 29th
  • $425 for our annual LLC fees and tax
    • $300 is our Delaware LLC franchise tax
    • $125 for our registered agent fee
  • $108.83 for our Google G-Suite Business account
    • This includes the $12.83 Google Voice line
  • $30.00 to 1&1 IONOS for domain services & outgoing email
  • $25.00 for the Paperspace Air instance
  • $10.00 for our Atlassian Jira Cloud instance (10-user)
  • $9.73 for the security / administration software

 


 

Our donation goal has been met and donations have been closed. Thank you for the awesome support!

 

Our donation system will be open as of the time of this post with a donation target of $6,543.49 and will automatically close once that target is met.

 

As always, thank you for the incredible support!

There is no February 31st 🙂

In Praetoria there is always a February 31st.

Of all game companies I have ever been a part of this is the first one to be transparent with proof as to where donations are being used. Thanks for bringing back this masterpiece! And here is to many more years to come!
