I'm happy to announce that we will be adding FunkyUserName to our NOTD 2 development team. We don't lightly make decisions to add members to NOTD's development team as the current team has worked together for several years - with a strong bond and a lot of trust built. We've personally spoken with Funky several times the team has unanimously agreed to have him on board. He will be working with Kithrixx and ArcanePariah, with a 60/40 responsibility split between implementation/design.

I recognize that people are busy with school (and also waiting for LOTV), but I still encourage you folks to find the time to provide feedback on concepts and designs because the more feedback you provide, the less likely I am to do something you hate.
As always, feel free to PM me questions about NOTD 2's development and...

I don’t know exactly what happened but it seems like every time I sat down to actually work on the Commando I’d wind up doing something else – usually a whole lot of something else. It’s finally done to my satisfaction for the time being, so hooray for that.
