Assembling the Team!
Holy space alien carp-hybrid cyborgs, Flatman! We’ve ripped past another two stretch goals! This is incredible, and awesome, and amazing!
Stretch Goal #2 UNLOCKED: Those You May Not Know, by André La Roche
André La Roche’s contribution to the Halcyon City Herald Collection is funded! “Those You May Not Know” includes profiles of two of Halcyon City’s more unknown or misunderstood heroes who still do the work and save the day. Echidna is a misunderstood, transformed monster, and Mr. Krowley is a strange, isolated master of the mystic arts...but both are still heroes. With this write-up, they’ll be ready for you to add into your game, as role models...odd authority figures...or even antagonists.
Stretch Goal #3 UNLOCKED: Dupes and Reboots, by Ariana Ramos and Seth Harris
And what’s more, “Dupes and Reboots” by Ariana Ramos and Seth Harris is going into the Halcyon City Herald Collection, too! They’re going to delve into the after effects of Halcyon City’s most recent multiversal retcon, even on down to the level of regular citizens of the city. If you’ve ever wanted to play around in the aftereffects of a crazy cosmic comic book event, then this article is going to give you just what you wanted.
In Our Next Issue…
And we continue to reveal more awesome stretch goals for down the line! Whew! We’re barely getting these out to you all before they are funded...
Stretch Goal #4: The Innocent, by Brendan Conway
If we reach $12,500, I (Brendan) will write up a brand new extra playbook for the game! Halcyon City is full of important heroes and villains...and the Innocent is a version of one of them from the past, pulled to the present. The Innocent gets to see first hand what they will one day become, and gets to decide if that’s what they really want to be...and maybe start all over in the present day. The Innocent is inspired primarily by Cyclops from Brian Michael Bendis’s run of All New X-Men.
Stretch Goal #5: Doctor Foresight and the Avaricean, by Michael Miller
If we reach $15,000, Michael Miller (indie gaming hero and writer of With Great Power...) will add a new piece to the Halcyon City Herald: “Doctor Foresight and the Avaricean.” There’s no hero quite like Doctor Foresight, a multi-generational hero struggling all throughout the history of Halcyon City against the forces of the Lord of Greed, from crime boss Jake Avarice in the Golden Generation, to the immortal Lord Avarice in the Silver Generation, to the dangerous corporation Avarex Industries. Through this piece you’ll learn all about this unending struggle and get a few new moves to add it into your own game of Masks.

And we’re still going! Halcyon City still has plenty more to discover and explore. Keep sharing and talking about Masks, and we’ll keep adding more and more to this game! Thank you all for your support, and we can’t wait to reveal what other cool things we have in store!
