Latest Updates from Our Project:

The train keeps chugging

Overdue update, but there's good news! Our iconic backers should be receiving contact from our artist and that means the character art is about to happen. In the meantime, here's another taste of what's been in the pipeline.

 Something else is a backer made magical item. A little gem called a time stone. This doozy can let you either take an extra turn or try a failed test again. We think this will be a great addition to any high society dragon's hoard.

Thanks, and happy gaming.

Slow and Steady

Apologies for being quiet during December, but we're back with a project update.

It's been taking us longer to get the project together than anticipated and we're going to miss the February date, however we have been putting in steady progress and we have more cool stuff to share again. Here's a few highlights of the art that's been coming in.

 In addition, we have another adventure synopsis.

A letter arrives for the party, inviting them to come investigate the secrets of a curious magical trinket. A small glass sphere with a moving depiction of a waterfall and its pool.

Upon reaching the address, the party find the home abandoned, save for the small glass ball. Within the party discover a pocket dimension containing huge snakes, giant spiders, and a creature made of water who holds the key to returning home.

Thanks again, and we'll keep our nose to the proverbial grindstone.

Hey guys, the art has been coming in and I thought you might want to see some of the pre-polished images. (Note, images below not final. Just for example)

 In addition to that, we have an adventure synopsis for the first scenario that will be included.

The Valley of Giants

Travelers tell stories of a remote valley where everything grows to enormous size. Henry Jacobson is assembling a team of explorers to investigate the source of this strange phenomenon. Encounter giant frogs, bees, dinosaurs, and even a village of fifteen foot tall people and discover the secret of the Valley of Giants.

The ball is rolling!

The Kickstarter funds just hit the bank, which means our artist can now start on the project in earnest. I've been thinking over what scenarios I'd like to include, and I should have some outlines to share soon.

Quick Update on Backerkit.

Just wanted to let everyone know that Backerkit surveys will be going out later today, now that we're clear of review. Once that happens, you'll be able to select add-ons and get the info for any creation rewards you selected. Thanks.
