Rulebook Feedback Needed!

Hey backers!

We wanted to thank all of you for the feedback on the miniatures from last week’s update. We are taking the suggestions into account and have already made changes to bring out the smaller details more.

For tonight’s update, we have the complete rulebook ready for you to read. We would really appreciate any of you rulebook gurus to take a look at it over the weekend and give us your feedback at feedback@succubuspublishing.com. For more nuanced questions about game mechanics, we have a FAQ section on our website that is being updated in real time.

The link to the rulebook is here.

We realize that some of the pages seem really crammed full of information or the formatting may be off. We are working with our graphic designer to correct the layout.

Let us know what you think and thanks for checking the update!

Final Tile Set Complete!

Hey Backers!

We realized that we’d finished the last tile set and never showed it off. Below is a shot of all the tiles in the Eerie. This dark cave holds terrors the players fight at higher levels!

We’re also super excited to be getting all the miniatures soon. When we get them from Panda you can be sure that we’ll be showing them off!

Thanks everyone! Have a great weekend!

Business as Usual

Hey Everyone,

Here we are again, another beautiful Friday! We are getting to the point where we don’t have much left to tell everyone. We have paid for the miniatures, play-tested the entire story, and are moving on to proofing all our text to send to Panda. Once everything is in Panda’s hands, we will probably move to less frequent updates, as we will all just be waiting for the game to get on the boat at that point.

We will definitely post updates when we have news, but unless someone is dying to hear about our adventures in battling spelling and grammatical errors, we just don’t have too much to tell. We will still check messages, emails, and comments, and will still post a few big updates for things like getting the proof copy and the production run of the rest of the minis.

We have some new art we debated on showing off, but in the end we decided that it was too spoiler heavy. We want to leave SOME surprises for you, after all! You guys are the best community of backers, and we hope your weekend is excellent!

Minis Lineup

Hey everyone,

We hope you’ve had great week. I know things have been going really good here at Succubus headquarters! We’ve been in constant contact with Panda getting everything all finalized with the minis. Now that Chinese New Year is coming to an end and we can get the minis actually cast, it’s full steam ahead. We are super excited!

We had a couple of scale things we had to get hammered out, and now we have an updated lineup to share with you. The whole lineup is REALLY big, so we cut it up into bite-sized chunks for your viewing pleasure. The full lineup is at the bottom if you want to see them all in one image. Just click on the image to see it in full size.

“So what’s next?” I hear you asking. Well, next is our in-house proofing of the game. We are going to go through every card, each scenario, and the entire rulebook to make sure that everything is correct and ready for Panda. Once that is complete, Panda will send us an actual proof copy of the components and files. Once we okay that, then we can get the game in full production.

We are so close we can almost taste it! We know that it has taken a long time, and we are really grateful for all of your support and patience. We really think the wait will be worth it! Enjoy your weekend, everybody!

Crawl Mode Update

Hey everybody,

Today, we wanted to share some updates as we put the finishing touches on the Crawl Mode. If you have read the rulebook that we posted a while back, you may notice that some things have changed. First off, we decided to make sure there was a good option for continuity between crawls. We’re making it so that you can play an entire scenario in 1-3 hours, as we wanted to give people who aren’t interested in long-term progression a game they could play in one night.

We also wanted to make sure that people who play the crawl mode got to experience all levels of play, so we are making 5 scenarios. If played consecutively, these will take a party from Mundane gear and level 1 abilities all the way to Rare gear and level 4 abilities. You can choose to play just one of the scenarios, as well, so each scenario will give the setup instructions for the party if they did not play the previous scenario.

In keeping with the goal of keeping a scenario under 3 hours, each scenario is now between 2 and 4 encounters long. In our previous design, there would be no way to finish a crawl scenario in an evening. We are big fans of story and continuity, so it has been a challenge to design a mode that isn’t just another Story mode. In designing the crawl mode, we are trying to give dungeon crawl enthusiasts a great experience without forcing them to commit to a daunting campaign.

Don’t worry, lovers of continuity and storytelling! The Story mode has not changed. ; ) We have fallen in love with these characters and we can’t wait to share them with all of you.

As a side note, we got our copy of Gloomhaven, and it is really good! They didn’t ask us to plug their game or give us free copies or anything like that. We just liked it so much that we wanted to tell everyone. If you haven’t checked it out, we highly recommend it!

Have a great weekend!
