Two big announcements
Hey there, residents of Gloomhaven!
It has been a while. Last time we talked, I mentioned that the community-driven scenario would launch, at the earliest, at the end of September. Well, that date has passed, but I finally have a fully formed plan that I am ready to share with you!
So, first of all, I saw a lot of requests to slow down the output of the scenarios, especially if it crosses over into the holidays, and that made a lot of sense. So for this next expedition, we will releasing a new scenario every two weeks instead of one. Which means we will get a road event on the off weeks. Or, who knows? If there's a lot of story to tell, we might get multiple road events in between scenarios.
As for the launch date, I've been coordinating with the good folks over at BGG to have the first scenario of the expedition go live at BGG Con next month. So the scenario will be available Wednesday, Nov. 14, and then Thursday night, I will be playing it on a live stream at the con with Jeff Anderson and Scott Alden from BGG, and Tim Shafer (!!!), creator of some of my favorite video games like Monkey Island and Psychonauts.
It's gonna be pretty great, so stay tuned for that! I'll send out an update that Wednesday with the first scenario and info on the live stream.
The other big news is that the pre-order for the first Gloomhaven expansion, Forgotten Circles, is now live! We're not running a Kickstarter for it, but it is ready to go to print, and I figured a pre-order would be a good way to gauge demand on how many to make.
You can follow the link to see the details, but I just want to say that Forgotten Circles is something special. The content Marcel Cwertetschka created for the game is top-notch, and we've implemented a new format for the scenario book (which you saw a little bit of in the previous community-driven expedition) that really pushes the game to new heights. I know Gloomhaven's not hurting for content, but if you're looking for more, this expansion is where it is at.
With all the awesome news out of the way, I will now take my leave. I hope you are all continuing to enjoy Gloomhaven and all the mysteries it has to uncover!
