Its inching closer and closer the more I work on it. (I hate to break the 666 vote total) - To give some kind of idea of where I'm at I'll try posting some percentages and stuff. Its based on my task list for the content so its a little bit more than arbitrary guesses, but things may change down the road.

I'm still working on figuring out how to fix the money problem, but I have the plot and quests and specific events planned that I'm going to do for this update. This also doesn't cover art or sprite improvements, but I have a feeling since I can't find an artist that that will have to wait for next update. Hopefully that gives you guys a better idea of where I'm at.
