    Colin, if you move to Donald's part of Scotland, it might be considered US territory, so technically, fulfilling US tax laws

    Morning all, long time lurker, new poster here!

    Just wanted to say thank you to everyone on the project for such an amazing product!

    Out of curiosity is there a specific location that developers outside of the US can contribute ideas, comments, and or moments of inspiration moving forward?

    Cheers for everything nonetheless, look forward to hearing back! ����������

    This is a group account through gmail and they have some heavy handed spam detection that occasionally flags legitimate email. You can email it me directly at [email protected].

    If only I could do this remotely... I'd love to apply for the Module Conversion. Oh well, I'm sure you'll find someone more qualified than I am for the role.

    I would love to be the module conversion specialist, I've done a few one shots and Pathfinder Society Scenarios so far, but there are many many more to do, but being a UK resident I guess I'm out of luck.

    Has there been any news on this front? I remember seeing that y'all had hoped to get through the resumes by the end of July, so I'm dying to hear more about it! Thanks!

    Thanks for the interest. We are conducting interviews this week and next week. Our focus has moved over mostly to the Ruleset Developer for our first hire.

    Oh, that's cool! SmiteWorks just does such big things, it's easy to forget that you guys are a small organization. I was just worried I missed it!

    Whoever you hire for Ruleset, please get someone who will make us a Shadow of the Demon Lord and Blades in the Dark official ruleset so I can put that money in your pocket!

    We have just hired two new people to join the team. We opted for hiring on two different people in the role of Ruleset Developer. They may dabble a bit in content creation as a Module Conversion Specialist as well.

    We plan to hold off on any future hires for the immediate term and then we may re-visit the applications we received for the other roles again at that time. Thanks again for your interest. We had a lot of great candidates.

    The new hires are Dominic Morta and Hollis Gray.

    It's a shame I don't live in the US, otherwise I'd have jumped at it.
