On Writing and Playtesting

We’re getting some writers started on the main story this week and next. Hopefully they’ll have a first draft for us soon. A big thanks to everyone who submitted writing samples!! We also want to inform you that we will no longer be accepting any further writing submissions. Thanks again for all the submissions and we should be getting back to everyone within the next week. There are more stories to write so keep an eye out for our reply.

Playtesting each encounter is going really well.  We’re about 50 encounters in and about 60% of the way through the story!  I hope that gives some context to how big this game is going to be; that’s right, HUGE!!  Especially since that is just the story mode! There will be lots of character progression throughout the game as well and we’re focusing on scaling that progression with the difficulty of the monsters to keep the game fresh and exciting every time you and your friends sit down to play. We also got an outside group together to do some playtesting with our prototype version of the game. Here’s some pics of them playing the first encounter string in the game:

Alex is still working hard on the forest tiles! He’s getting much closer to finishing up the set and starting on the remaining cave tiles. Check out a couple of tiles he finished up this week:
