Happy New Year, people! :)

Looking forward to 2017, I will hopefully be able to re-launch the Kickstarter that failed to reach the funding in late 2016.

Apart from this, I am continuing to working on the background of the world and the game itself, although it is still going quite slow. I am also still working on getting the character cards done, and while most of the basic layout is done, I will have someone to touch the layout up a bit to make it look a little more nice.

I have also had the icons of each factions reworked, and while these are not the only factions, these are the ones that will be the focus point initially. Each faction will include around 6-9 characters, to provide a little variation when designing the warband in-game. This means that the more factions I add, the harder it will become from a balancing point of view. With these current five factions, I am looking at around 30-45 characters. Honestly, this many individual characters are already now a challenge to get right, which is one reason why the development is taking time.

Anyway, here are the icons for the five factions.

From left to right:

The Clansmen of Caer Loch; The Sons of Yetl Black; The Outcasts of Dur Makeb; The Nomads of the Birch House; The Exiles of the Tetsu Clan.




This means that two factions that have been developed will be put a bit on hold. The Guardians of Raven Oak and the Militia of the Free City of Rexen. Some of the sculpts have been commissioned for these two factions, and they could potentially be made available just as miniatures until the development of the other five factions are completed. This will also mean that some of the background story will have to be readjusted. For example, the Free City has been a central part and they have been the "narrative focal point" of the background. I do realise, though, that the background is by far more important for the creator than for others, so I do not expect most people to care too much about this. :)

Anyway, if you have any thoughts about the icons, good or bad, let me know. :)

"Pagen", the latest character sculpted by Luc "Thantor" Pinganaud. He will be a part of the upcoming Kickstarter, which I hope will successfully fund. I am crossing my fingers, at least. :)

Enjoy!

This is an early character card design. It is not a final version, and there will be changes to it, but the basic design will remain the same. I am aiming for a clean design that isn't too hard to "read" when looking at it. But you will get an idea of how the end product will look like. :)

And here are another 4 sculpts that will be a part of the next Kickstarter which will launch shortly. :) No surprises here, as you have seen them earlier already. :)

Villa, Headsman of Caer Loch, sculpted by Joaquin Palacios. Villa, son of the clan's executioner, received a harsh upbringing. His mother was lost at birth, and every since Villa was blamed for her death by his father, and he constantly was reminded of this by being on the wrong end of his father's whip. Villa was appointed the clan's new headsman at the age of sixteen after his father was a casualty at the battle of Groenward. Villa, too, was a part of that particular battle, where he single-handedly defended the important landmark of the Umpire Boulder and held it for well over an hour, allowing for reinforcement to arrive. Reports have it that Villa was at their arrival covered in blood and surrounded by more than two-dozen bodies of their fallen enemies.

These four figures will be a part of an upcoming Kickstarter project, which will see a launch before the end of this year. With enogh support the project could hopefully continue to expand and develop. I hope to aim at around late September or early October, but nothing is yet set in stone.

This is one faction of totally three factions that will be the funding goal for the Kickstarter. So another eight miniatures on top of these four will be included. I will hopefully be able to show another figure the coming few weeks or so, so stay tuned. :)

Shinten of the Tetsu Clan, sculpted by Pedro Fernandez Ramos.

In time of strife, every clan needs a coldblooded killer. For the Tetsu Clan, this is Shinten. He is the prefered assassin of the clan, having the reputation to never miss a target. He is often used to infiltrate the enemy where he has got the task to eliminate the leaders when needed. But alas, the missions issued to Shinten has taken a toll on him and has made him emotionally numb. He does not care anymore who falls by his hands, but take pleasure in ending the life of anyone who steps in front of him. One such particular unfortunate event resulted in him killing a clan member with the now slain member's own weapon. These weapons, his pair of sais, are now his prefered weapons of choice to the dismay of his own clan.

"Yomi" of the Tetsu Clan, sculpted by Pedro Fernandez Ramos. Yomi, in his youth, was a troublesome boy; one who did not eagerly listen to his elders and conformity. Instead, he often walked his own path, much to the disappointment of his father who tried to teach him the noble ways of their clan. His father was slain trying to protect him, after Yomi taunted a band of outlaw bandits. The bandits gravely wounded Yomi, telling him that smart-mouthed boys do not have a place in this world, and left him for dead. Fortunately, his clan found him and managed to save his life. After several months, Yomi was finally back up on his feets, only to learn that his face had been badly scarred in the encounter with the bandits. Filled with lust for revenge, Yomi hooded his deformed face and left the clan to search for the bandits. For years he walked the lands, earning his living as a mercenary in his hunt for the men who killed his father and scarred him for life. As he learnt of the uprising, he decided to return home to stand with his clan to honour his father.
