Hello Brimstone Gang!

   We are just wrapping up the Shadows of Brimstone: Forbidden Fortress Kickstarter today and wanted to give a 'last call' reminder message to all of our die-hard original Shadows of Brimstone backers! 

    The Kickstarter has really blown up and a TON of Stretch Goals have been unlocked, giving backers a wall of new Expansion material for Shadows of Brimstone!  The deal has become pretty amazing - not as insane as the original Kickstarter to be fair, but an incredible value while remaining something we can deliver on time and in budget!

We recently unlocked the big $1M Stretch Goal so Backers get 'Sho-Riu, The Dragon King'!  The model is shown here next to the Samurai Warrior Hero for scale comparison.

And now, we will leave you with an exciting image of the Ancient One!

Hello Brimstone Gang-
     Yeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaw!  We are getting closer to Wave 2 every day, as containers arrive from the factories with more parts and pieces for us to sort and prepare for packing into Wave 2 boxes.  It is a very exciting time, indeed!  And the new Kickstarter for Shadows of Brimstone: Forbidden Fortress is rolling along, too!  We will have a preview of that later in the update, but first, let's talk more about Wave 2...

Just a portion of the Wave 2 Material fills this warehouse and more is still being manufactured!

Wave 2 Update

    Wave 2 is marching ever closer as we get more and more of the final materials back from manufacturing! We are still on track to begin the Wave 2 packing and shipping process starting in late December/early January. It will take a few months to get everything sorted, packed up, and sent out to everyone, but we are excited to get this final shipping wave into the hands of all the Backers!

Extra Items

    Many Backers have been asking when we will open up the option to fill out the extra items for their Wave 2 to get a hold of any extras that will be in the retail release versions of a few of the kits (items that were not originally part of the KS such as Flesh Drones to go with the Flesh Stalker, Sand Crabs and Wasteland Warlord/Heavies for the Blasted Wastes, etc).  This will be handled through the official Flying Frog Webstore and we will have an update in early December with more information.

Preview of New Heroes and Mission Packs

    We wanted to give you guys a quick preview of some of the expansion material that we haven't shown much of yet. 

First, let's look at some of the new Heroes: The Dark Stone Shaman, Wandering Samurai, and Gambler...

Shadows of Brimstone: Forbidden Fortress Kickstarter

    As many of you already know, the Shadows of Brimstone: Forbidden Fortress Kickstarter is in full swing right now, and heading into the final week!

     Shadows of Brimstone: Forbidden Fortress is the next chapter in the Shadows of Brimstone series.  It can be played on its own as a stand-alone game, or it can be used in combination with any and all of the other Shadows of Brimstone products already available! It is fully compatible, in every way!

     We have been revealing some fantastic new Heroes, Enemies, and OtherWorlds for it, as well as a few new elements that tie in closely with the original Shadows of Brimstone Worlds and themes!

New OtherWorlds

The Forbidden Fortress – A Feudal Japanese castle, overrun with all manner of demons and creatures, the Forbidden Fortress is a dark and foreboding place, filled with unspeakable horrors, Dishonored Dead, and mythological monsters to terrorize your Heroes. As you climb ever higher through the large open courtyards, stairway passages, and interior rooms of the Fortress, you will find that there is no escape from the forces of Darkness within.

The Belly of the Beast – A world within an unspeakably massive monster, the Belly of the Beast allows the Heroes to explore the twisting corridors and living chambers inside the creature! The walls pulse and drip with sticky mucus, wet from the hot and humid mist that hangs in the air; while the fleshy floor gives beneath your feet with every step. The Heroes will find themselves battling all sorts of living organs and parasites, and fighting off the Flesh Mites, Acid Blobs, Skin Crawlers, Bone Eaters, and Parasitic Tentacles that inhabit this ‘living’ world.

    Some of you may recognize this OtherWorld as a Stretch Goal that was announced, but not unlocked, during the original Shadows of Brimstone Kickstarter campaign.

Forest of the Dead - The Forest of the Dead is a shadowy realm that lies between worlds, where the dead roam freely amongst the ancient and decayed trees.

    One of the main World features of the Forest of the Dead is that all the Enemies there automatically gain the Keyword Undead and Fear(1). This combines with the fact that in addition to the normal spectres and monsters that reside there, several of the OtherWorld Threat cards in the Forest have you draw a World card and a Threat from that World, giving you the possibility of running into Undead versions of any Enemies that are out there, as they roam the haunted, supernatural Forest of the Dead!

    You may run into a patrol of Undead Trederran Legionnaires, zombie Night Terrors, decayed Oni, or rusty and shambling Custodians from the Targa Plateau. The possibilities can be endless, drawn from across your entire Shadows of Brimstone collection to terrify and torment your Heroes!

Trederran Veteran Hero Class

     One of the other cool new items in the Forbidden Fortress Kickstarter is a playable Trederran Veteran Hero!

    Hailing from the war-torn alien world of Trederra, this veteran soldier of the Trederran Legionnaires is a survivor of countless engagements on the toxic battlefields and blown out ruins of his home. Growing weary of the never-ending wars, and realizing the true power of evil looming beyond the shadows, he has left his world to join in the fight against the real Darkness that threatens all worlds. 

    In search of adventure, and perhaps riches, he has answered the call to become not just a soldier of Trederra…but a Hero.

    The Trederran Veteran is a new OtherWorld Hero themed as a soldier from the bombed-out, industrial age, alien world of Trederra. A hardened warrior, this Hero class is highly skilled as both a hand-to-hand fighter and at range, with his trusty Trederran Trench Pistol.

    As he comes from an alien world, this pack includes a special Trederra Personal Items deck as well as a deck of Trederran Starting Factions that you get to choose from when creating your Hero! Will you be an elite shock trooper from the Republic of Tar-kon, a mutated Legionnaire from The Royal Foundry, or perhaps a warrior decked out in the ceremonial armor of The Shintaro Core? Whichever Nation you choose, one thing is certain, the Trederran Veteran is a solid and fun addition to any Hero Posse.

New Caverns of Cynder Enemy - Magma Fiends

    There are many new and terrifying Enemies in the Forbidden Fortress Kickstarter, but one that may be of particular interest to Brimstone fans are the Magma Fiends of Cynder!

    Spewing molten magma from their gaping maws, these rocky creatures swarm through the Caverns of Cynder, churning the lava and belching black smoke as they burrow new tunnels through the rock. Much like the Lava Men, these Fiends are constructed from the magma itself, hardening into charred masses, and chewing through the solid walls to open up new passages and chambers for the lava to flow.

    These enemies have the ability to chew open new doorways on the board and can leave a trail of burning lava spaces in their wake! They are themed for the Caverns of Cynder OtherWorld, but also include Threat cards to appear in the Old West Mines / Forbidden Fortress.

    This is just a taste of everything the Shadows of Brimstone: Forbidden Fortress campaign has to offer, and there are new Stretch Goals being unlocked every day!

The Shadows of Brimstone: Forbidden Fortress Kickstarter campaign ends on November 30th, so go take a look before it gets away!

Wave 2 Update, Blasted Wastes Preview, and a sneak peek inside the Forbidden Fortress!

Hello Brimstone Gang!

We've been busy finishing up development on the last items from the Shadows of Brimstone Kickstarter and gearing up for our upcoming new Kickstarter - Shadows of Brimstone: Forbidden Fortress!  It uses all of the same rules and gameplay as the original Shadows of Brimstone, but takes the action to feudal Japan, with Japanese themed Heroes and Enemies.  All fully compatible!

Wave 2 Update

First off, let's talk about the status of Wave 2.  Barring any unforeseen delays, we are still on track for starting to ship out Wave 2 packages to backers beginning in December/January. We will be processing Backer Pledges in rounds, as all of the components needed for different pledges arrive from manufacturing in China. With nearly 5,000 backers, it will take several months to get all of these packages packed up and sent out, but we are excited to get the last of the Stretch Goals and Add-Ons into the hands of the backers!

We have been talking with our international distribution partners that will be handling shipping from within the EU, UK, and Australia; making a plan for Wave 2 delivery.  Due to Holiday shipping congestion, they will be ready to begin in the new year.      

At this point, virtually all of the remaining components are complete. All miniatures have been handed off for mold tooling.  That is an important milestone because tooling of the steel molds takes the most time of any part of the process.  Most of the printed components are ready in our warehouse or currently in manufacturing.  But, some printed components are waiting for an open slot for manufacturing at the factories as the end of year/holiday season is a very busy time for manufacturing in China.  Rather than hand off all of the files before there is an open window to start manufacturing, we are continuing to balance test and polish right up until the last minute to make everything as good as possible!

It has been a long production to get everything done, but we are committed to making the very best games that we can and are excited to be nearing the finish line on this massive Shadows of Brimstone KS! 

Blasted Wastes Preview

Much like the Trederra OtherWorld, The Blasted Wastes will be a Deluxe OtherWorld Expansion! That means in addition to the full Map Tile set for the Blasted Wastes and the Wasteland Scavengers Enemy group (as originally listed in the Kickstarter), it will also be filled with tons of new material, including entirely new decks of cards, a new alien Town to visit, many new enemies to fight, and new game mechanics! 

As part of expanding the Blasted Wastes into a Deluxe OtherWorld, we've added a cool new second pose to the Wasteland Scavengers, twice the number of new cards, an alien Barter Town for the Heroes to visit, and instead of Mine Map Tiles on the back, we've added a whole new World for the Old West – The Canyons! All of these changes will be included for free to those backers that are getting the Blasted Wastes OtherWorld (as part of a Mine Cart Pledge, or as an Add-On)! There are also 3 new Enemy Types (Wasteland Heavies/Warlord, Sand Crabs, and tribal Ghost Warriors - an unreached Stretch Goal that we made available in the Pledge Manager) that will be part of the retail release version of this Deluxe Expansion. These will be made available as an Optional Upgrade package to KS backers that want to complete their Blasted Wastes expansion to match the final retail version. More details will be available on how to purchase this Optional Upgrade for these new Enemy groups before Wave 2 starts shipping.    

Day and Night

One major feature of the Blasted Wastes OtherWorld is a Day and Night cycle. On this alien, prison planet, the days are short and blazingly hot, as the blistering suns beat down on those that move across the desert landscape and powerful Dark Stone dust storms sweep across the dunes. But at night, once the suns have set, the sulfur acid pools begin to bubble and boil, creating clouds of toxic mist that settle in the valleys around them. Some of the creatures and inhabitants are also emboldened at night, more aggressive and dangerous to those straying into their hunting grounds.

Wasteland Barter Town

The Blasted Wastes is also home to a new type of Town that the Heroes can visit, The Wasteland Barter Town! Using Scrap and Tech scavenged from the wreckage out in the wastes as currency, Heroes can visit the Scavenger Doc to heal their injuries, using brutal but effective alien tools and remedies, or the Wasteland Workshop to get all manner of post-apocalyptic Upgrades for their Items, even having the alien junksmith construct a set of Wasteland Scrap Armor for them!

The Canyons

 

Rather than do more Mine Map Tiles on the backside of the Blasted Wastes, we decided to introduce a new Earth environment in the form of The Canyons! These red rock gulch pieces allow the Heroes to adventure through the craggy valleys and white water rivers of the Southwest. With hungry vultures circling overhead, river crossings, flash floods, and tribal Ghost Warriors descending from the hills, The Canyons are not for the faint of heart.

Heroes can even find Exits and Entrances back and forth between the Mines and The Canyons along the way.

A man-eating cactus has grown wild in these parts, sprawling over the rocky desert floor and lying in wait for its next victim to stray too close.

 New Enemies

The Blasted Wastes has more than just Wasteland Scavengers roaming the desert dunes, they are lead by Wasteland Warlords, powerful leaders that whip them into a frenzy while savagely carving a path through any Heroes that would stand in his way. They also have Wasteland Heavies, carrying large and powerful Scrap Cannons into the fight to unleash a torrent of deadly rust bolts at their foes.

 

 

The sulfur deserts of the wasteland are also home to many exotic alien creatures, but few are more fearsome than the deadly Sand Crabs! These fiends have thick, armored shells, and large snapping claws, burrowing through the sandy ground to ambush their prey from below.

 


There is also a new Enemy themed for The Canyons in the form of the Indian tribal Ghost Warriors! These demon-possessed Indian Braves were once human, living in villages on the outskirts of Brimstone when it blew. As the creatures and demons that could take physical form terrorized the inhabitants of the town itself, the formless spirits and demons released swept through the native camps and villages throughout the nearby countryside, taking possession of whole tribes. Now they paint their bodies a ghastly white, roaming the cliffs and canyons, jittering in and out of reality as they stalk unwary travelers and strike out from the shadows of the void to attack!

Another Kickstarter?!?

As mentioned in the last Update, when members of the Flying Frog team completed their Shadows of Brimstone KS work, they began rolling onto the next project… Shadows of Brimstone: Forbidden Fortress! By having this next project lined up, it meant that we could avoid down time for artists and sculptors between projects. In this way, doing a third Core Set for Shadows of Brimstone was a natural choice as it had all of the framework and game engine from the previous two Core Sets, but with some new mechanics, all new content, and a very cool and different theme, starting the Heroes in Feudal Japan.

We learned a lot from our first Kickstarter campaign, and while it was challenging, we are proud of the epic game line that was created.  Not to mention the amazing community that came out of the Kickstarter and continues today.  All of our experiences, lessons learned, and pipelines established have led to our new Kickstarter project for the next chapter in the world of Shadows of Brimstone.

Shadows of Brimstone: Forbidden Fortress

When we decided to do a third Core Set for Shadows of Brimstone, we wanted it to bring something new to the table, beyond simply new content. There have always been strong ties between Feudal Japan and the American Old West, so it seemed like a great way to expand what the world of Shadows of Brimstone is. Thus was born Shadows of Brimstone: Forbidden Fortress!

As a third Core Set for Shadows of Brimstone, Forbidden Fortress can either be played on its own, as a stand-alone game, or it can be used in combination with any and all of the other Shadows of Brimstone products! It is fully compatible, in every way!

Forbidden Fortress also adds a brand new OtherWorld on the back side of the Map Tiles… The Belly of the Beast! Backers from the original Brimstone Kickstarter may recognize this as an OtherWorld Stretch Goal that was not unlocked during the original campaign. When we started formalizing what would be in Forbidden Fortress, the idea of adding the Belly of the Beast as the OtherWorld on the back side of the tiles was a perfect fit! What could be more in keeping with the Japanese theme than allowing the Heroes to find their way through a portal that leads inside of an unspeakably massive creature; battling all sorts of living organs and parasites, and fighting off the Flesh Mites, Acid Blobs, and Parasitic Tentacles that inhabit this ‘living’ world.

Many of the new Enemies for Forbidden Fortress are inspired by traditional Japanese myth and legend, but with a Shadows of Brimstone feel to them. Creatures take the form of terrifying ghosts and Demons to make manifest the supernatural horrors of Feudal Japan.

But there are courageous Heroes to fight back this new evil that has invaded their world! The stalwart Samurai Warrior, using his mastery of the Katana and his code of honor to defeat his foes in combat, the nimble and deadly ninja Assassin, using stealth and speed as weapons, the Traveling Monk, a member of an ancient Yamabushi order devoted to fighting supernatural creatures that threaten our world, and the powerful and mystic Sorceress, who wields Elemental Magik to crush her enemies.

For new players, Forbidden Fortress will make a great introduction to the world of Shadows of Brimstone, and for veteran players, it can easily be treated as two brand new OtherWorlds, with a new set of Heroes and Enemies to add to your games. It also gives you the new option of starting your Heroes in Feudal Japan or the Old West, or mixing your Hero party for fantastic adventures. The possibilities are endless!

Once again, we would like to thank all of our original Shadows of Brimstone Backers for supporting the project and coming on this adventure with us.  If you'd like to saddle up once again for another wild ride in the world of Shadows of Brimstone, the adventures continue in the land of the rising sun! 

The Shadows of Brimstone: Forbidden Fortress Kickstarter launches on October 31st!

That's all for now!  Happy Gaming!

Howdy Brimstone Gang!

      Hope your Summer is going well and you're getting time to adventure in the mines and other worlds beyond!  We have been quite busy with the Summer convention season and, of course, working hard to complete the mountain of expansion material unlocked during the Kickstarter!  Well, we have lots of news from Gen Con, including a video of Jason giving a personal preview of the Derelict Ship Other World, and info about the upcoming PAX West, too.  Let's get to it...            

Gen Con Recap

We survived another exciting Gen Con and lived to tell the tales!  Many demos were run, new players were introduced to the Shadows of Brimstone world, special events and previews, and some surprises to boot!  We had a great time meeting lots of KS Backers and showing off upcoming expansion material.  Fans of the game showed up in amazing Brimstone Cosplay, too!  Here are some of the highlights:

3D Brimstone Game Boards - At the booth, we featured two beautiful scratch-built 3D game boards, the colorful and detailed Targa Plateau board that debuted at Gen Con last year, and the brand new Frontier Town board. Players fought demons, aliens, and bandits on these boards throughout the show!

Surprise releases - We always try to have a surprise or two each year at Gen Con; something that no one knows about ahead of time. This year, we shocked folks with some new resin game minis (Serpentmen Grand Shaman, Void Magus, and Sgt. Bunker - one of Col. Scafford's Lieutenants) and the 'Edge of the Abyss' Card Supplement - featuring 15 new Growing Dread cards. These were not part of the KS, and if anyone is interested in picking them up, we just put them up on the FFP Web Store.

 

 

 

 

Shadows of Brimstone Upcoming Expansion Preview Event - On Gen Con Thursday, Jason gave Brimstone fans a personal tour of all of the future expansions for Shadows of Brimstone that are in development. He showed off the Derelict Ship OtherWorld Expansion, the Blasted Wastes Deluxe OtherWorld Expansion, the Mission Packs (including the Feral Vampires, Werewolves, Crimson Hand, Black Fang Braves, Hellfire Succubi, and the Lost Army), and new enemies like the Beacon Drones and the massive Ancient One!  After the presentation, several players also got to explore the dark corridors of the Vostros, playing in a deadly Derelict Ship Mission!

 

.

Flying Frog's Next Big Thing Event - On Gen Con Friday, Jason and Scott revealed the next project for Flying Frog Productions, "Shadows of Brimstone: Forbidden Fortress", a third Core Set for Shadows of Brimstone.  This time, the action starts in castles and temples of feudal Japan instead of the mines of the Old West.  The Other World featured on the reverse side of the game boards is the infamous 'Belly of the Beast' which many of you may remember as an elusive stretch goal which was never unlocked in the KS.

Forbidden Fortress can be played as a stand-alone game or combined with all of the Shadows of Brimstone product line for massive adventures. As some members of the Flying Frog team have finished the last of their Brimstone work, they have moved on to the Forbidden Fortress, so we were able to show off some miniatures, illustrations, and room tiles for both Japan and the Belly of the Beast as part of the preview.  Forbidden Fortress will be launched as a new Kickstarter project this Fall, after the last of the original Brimstone KS material development is complete.  More details about this in a future update.

Trederran Trench War Mega Event - On Gen Con Saturday, Jason ran a massive mega-event called Trederran Trench War where heroes grabbed their six-shooters and headed into the trenches of Trederra.

 

They faced off against Legionnaires, Mutants, Grenadiers, Lieutenants and all of the horrors of the battlefield like toxic clouds and land mines! They got caught up in a struggle between two warring Trederran factions, the Union and the Royal Foundry, and had to find the Doomsday device (we sculpted and 3D printed a special game model of the Doomsday Device for the event!) and shut it down before it detonated.

 

In the end, two ornery Prospectors surrounded by mutants, used their pick axes to deliver the final blow! It was great fun and all players walked away with cool prizes based on experience!

 

 

Shadows of Brimstone Painting Contest - Last year, we held our first Shadows of Brimstone painting contest and it was a blast! So, we did it again this year and had even more amazing entries. You can bet we'll do this again next year!

Studio Painter, Aaron Lovejoy, was painting live at the booth.  He was also answering questions and giving pro-painting tips!

Progress Update! Plus Gen Con Info and Preview

Hello Brimstone Gang!

We've been feverishly working away on the remaining Shadows of Brimstone expansion material from the Kickstarter. It's going well, and we are still aiming for completing production by the end of the year. This update, we show off some of that progress and also cover information about Gen Con, which is almost upon us.

Flesh Stalker

Flesh Stalkers are a mysterious, rare, and ancient alien race. Masters of super science and the macabre, they work in the shadows, only emerging when required to accomplish their fiendish goals! Flesh Stalkers are known for the ruthless and gruesome experiments they perform, splicing the DNA and body parts of various creatures and people together to create hideous monstrosities to do their bidding.

In developing the Flesh Stalker, we realized that he really needs minions to do his nefarious bidding. The creation of the Flesh Drones really "fleshed" out the character and upgraded him from a simple enemy to an entire Deluxe Enemy Pack with new missions, Encounters, Artifacts, Threats, and all new decks including 'Fiendish Goals' and the Flesh Stalker's 'Tools of Terror'.

Obviously, the Flesh Stalker was originally conceived as a single enemy during the Kickstarter. As we have done in the past, we will be sure that backers have the option to purchase an upgrade to the full Deluxe Enemy Pack to get the six Flesh Drone enemies and all of the new cards and missions. More specifics on this before we send out Wave 2. Backers that choose not to upgrade, will receive the Flesh Stalker with some of his cards so that he appears only as an Epic Threat, as originally listed in the Kickstarter. 

XL Swamp Raptor

Stalking the swampy jungles of Jargono, the deadly Swamp Raptor is one of the creatures most feared by tribal natives and Serpentmen alike! With its thick-scaled hide, lightning fast speed, and viciously sharp teeth, the Swamp Raptor is the ultimate predator of the jungle.

We are very proud of the new level of detail that we have achieved in the latest models. The Swamp Raptor has very detailed reptilian skin, sharp teeth, and a dynamic fin ridge down its back! The kit goes together easily and looks really sharp!

 

 

XXL Sand Kraken

Tunneling through rock and sand and time, these ancient and massive creatures lay dormant beneath the surface of the world for millenia. Earthquakes rock the ground and mountains tremble as the most massive of these beasts stir in thier timeless slumber, waiting to awaken, rumbling to the surface to feed their eternal hunger. When a Sand Kraken re-emerges from the deep, breaking through the surface like the tip of a horrifying iceberg, the vast majority of its beastly body remains writhing and clawing through the ocean of rock below.

We just received some new production plastics in the studio including the Swamp Raptor and Sand Kraken. The detail on the Sand Kraken really looks great, from the chitinous surface of each reptilian scale on the body to the eroded cuts in each of the rocks in the base!

Gen Con Pick Up

We have received a lot of messages asking about a Gen Con pick up. We have been working hard to put together something cool but also logistically possible. We have decided to offer two options for the Gen Con pick up:

Option #1 Big Box of Stuff - We can process your Pledge in advance and ship it to Gen Con for an in-person Pick Up. It will include everything that we have ready up to this point. You must pre-register for this in advance of Gen Con and we will need to charge a $20 registration fee (for shipping and handling). This pre-registration will close on July 25th or when we run out of the limited slots available (about 100 backers). At the time of pick up, you will have the option to purchase missing enemies to complete your OtherWorld:Trederra Expansion and Flesh Stalker and Flesh Drones Deluxe Enemy Pack.

Option #2 OtherWorld: Trederra - No pre-registration necessary. If you are a Kickstarter Backer who is slated to receive OtherWorld:Trederra (Minecart Pledge or as an Add-On to an Outlaw Pledge), you can pick up this Deluxe Expansion. We have limited quantities (air shipping these in early at great expense), so we will have 50 available for pick up on Thursday at 10AM and 50 available on Saturday at 10AM. We may have additional copies available for Pick up on Sunday at 3PM. At the time of pick up, you will have the option to purchase missing enemies to complete your OtherWorld:Trederra Expansion.

Well, that's it for now. We hope to see many of you at Gen Con in a few weeks. Be sure to stop by the booth and say hi!

Cheers,
    Scott and Jason
