News from the other side

Citizens of Elysium,

The team has taken inspiration from the chapter on madness and is working with bestial frenzy. During the coming two weeks, Head Writer Robin will publish at least another five chapters from the Core Rule Book at the KDL Forum and Creative Director Petter, aka Mr Night Rant (see the three Night Rant clips at Youtube if you’ve missed them:, will release the final four chapters of the mythos section at the Collector’s Forum in the same time frame.

With the release of the above chapters and all chapters of the Black Madonna having been released, the core writers will turn their focus to Taroticum & Other Tales and give the six scenarios (in addition to already released Oakwood Heights) to complete this book, the rusty love and treatment they deserve.

We are expecting delivery of some artwork in the near future. Mainly for the Tarot Deck, but also some new updated archetype artwork (a few of the draft artwork for archetypes we had in mind will be replaced).

We’ll continue with our series of presenting the artists to you together with some samples of their artwork.

What about layout then? Our Art Director has been working in the shadows. As material have been finalised for the Core Rule Book, his focus has been on the Black Madonna. That will now shift towards the Core Rule Book as almost all chapters are more or less done in terms of writing, translations and editing. Below is a sample of some of the layout completed for the Black Madonna.

Other ancillary items are also progressing (posters, Narrator Screen etc). Many of these are handled by others than the core team members to free up as much time as possible for completion of the main books. The updated Tracker gives you more details on progress.

In our next update you’ll be able to read more about Italian illustrator Daniel Comerci, on of our artists whose stunning art we quickly embraced. He will present himself together with some of his artwork.

Until next time,
Petter, Robin & Marco

      Oh and I’m sure the same can be said about writers, editors and producers/managers. ;)
