As multiple versions of characters and backgrounds have been posted in comments on several different blog posts and others have been showing up in email, let me know if you have completed a task and I don't seem to realize that you have done so.
Assuming all characters are completed in the next few days I expect to post the first turn on Friday 4/29.
