Torg Eternity Preview #2 – Reality

This week’s preview features the rules and lore of Torg’s unique reality. Arguably Torg’s reality rules make it unique, and it was important that we get things right here. Again, we didn’t want to change anything for the sake of change. Any changes need to have benefits.

It was also a challenge to try to think through any consequences of tweaks and changes we did make.

CROM Unit Preview #4 – Gunderland Pikemen

“With the knights came what seemed a second, irregular army on tough swift ponies. These dismounted and formed their ranks on foot – stolid Bossonian archers, and keen pikemen from Gunderland, their tawny locks blowing from under their steel caps.” -The Scarlet Citadel

“Instantly the monster whirled and was upon him like the rush of wind through tall grass. The long knife quivered in its neck, point and a foot of blade showing on one side, and the hilt and a hand’s breadth of steel on the other, but it only seemed to madden the giant reptile. The great head towered above the man who faced it, and then darted down, the venom-dripping jaws gaping wide.” -The People of the Black Circle

Arivor’s Doom – Early Look

We’ve reached a quiet moment for The Dark Eye. Over the next couple of months we will be fulfilling two Kickstarters, but not starting any new ones. Instead we will be focusing on turning out new products to expand the line while we look towards growing community of fans.

As we continue to develop things behind the scenes, we’ll be previewing some of those upcoming products so that you can get a sense of what’s coming soon. Today we look at Arivor’s Doom, the next major adventure release for The Dark Eye roleplaying game.

Almanac Non-Backer Survey

Two days ago, we wrapped up the Kickstarter for the Aventuria Almanac. We are very happy with the results – nearly 700 people backed for over 1200% of our funding target. That’s nearly half as many people as backed the Core Rules, which is fantastic for a setting supplement!

But because the number is nearly half, and because at least some of those people may have been backing our products for the first time, we know that there are many of our fans who chose not to participate in this Kickstarter. There are many reasons why people choose one Kickstarter or another (or no Kickstarters at all). Rather than speculate why you made your decision, we want to ask you directly.
