Thornwatch‘s base set finishes up in layout
All the design, editing, symbology, and art is now final for the base set of Thornwatch, our fantasy game with Penny Arcade. We’ve got all the cards and trackers laid out, and are now finishing up the map tiles and storyboard layouts. Here’s a very cool cover illustration by Mike Krahulik.
We’re also deep in the creation of the first expansion for the Eyrewood Adventures line: The Dark of the Wood. We’ve created five new character decks for the corrupted Thornwatch such as the Briarlock, Dark Courier, and Weave-Weald. There will be more cards, more storyboards, and more danger.
We’ll be bringing a near-finished version of the Thornwatch base set to PAX West, so please join us there to play it. With Apocrypha‘s base set and The Ninth World out of our hands, Thornwatch is the next big project for our printers. When it’s ready, we’ll have a lot more to say about it.
What we’re doing at Gen Con
With Gen Con just two weeks away, we’re gearing up to go to Indianapolis. We’ll have demos of all these games in our booth, plus full gameplay sessions in the Lone Shark area in Hall C. You can attend any of the dozen panels that our Lone Staff are on, among them the Crafting Horror panel on Friday afternoon and the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game panel on Sunday morning. Or just come find us and get Apocrypha promo cards. We think you will especially like Contract Poison.
Thanks as always for supporting us Sharks!
