Beginning to Wrap Up: Post-Kickstarter week 32
A good day to all you residents of Gloomhaven!
I must say, things are going pretty well over here at Gloomhaven Headquarters. The final pass at the rule book is great. Everything is falling into place with that. I got all the icons updated on the scenario book and gave it a good, solid edit, and now it is in the hands of other people who are much better at editing than I am, which fills me with hope.
Plus, I'm just happy to not be staring at it for 10-12 hours a day anymore. A change of scenery can be positively uplifting.
So what's next on the agenda? It's funny because someone asked me this yesterday, and it took me a while to come up with a response because I had just been so focused on the scenario book. I'd like to do a little more fine-tuning on some of the character classes, and then it's just a matter of getting all the odds and ends tied up, getting every single component approved and finalized for the printer.
And here is one of those components Josh spent some time on recently. I give you the new and improved elemental infusion table!
I think the extra glow effects really punch it up in a good way, adding to the concept of strongly infused elemental energy. You will also notice the addition of a round tracker, which was snuck into the last version of the rule book. The element table was the natural place to put a round tracker, since you'll be moving the elements down at the end of each round anyway.
For most of the scenarios, you won't need the round tracker, but some do require you to keep track of what round it is, so we implemented a better way to do that. Scenarios can go past 12 rounds, of course, but there aren't any where you will need to track the exact round number past 12.
I mentioned last week that the molds were close to finished for the miniatures. I don't have the samples in my hands yet, but the manufacturer sent me some pictures of the first iterations. There were a few minor problems that are being fixed, but I just wanted to let you know that things are still progressing on that front.
All right, so one last thing I wanted to mention is that Geekway to the West is next week. Yay! Are you going to Geekway to the West? I'm going to Geekway to the West. We should hang out. We can play Gloomhaven, or Terra Mystica, or whatever else you might want to play. It will be great.
And I think that's about it. We are nearing the end of the road. Thanks for taking the journey with me.
Until next time!
