Greetings! Here we are again with some exciting news! 

New Title Cover

First of all, we changed the title cover of our project with our new hand drawn portraits. We're proud to show off the face of our protagonist, Gaulen the Explorer. See that handsome man in the center? That's Gaulen! What do you guys think? We are always interested in your feedback.

New Special Limited Reward

Special Signed Physical Edition ($120)

Through your feedback, we decided to add Signed Physical Copies. That's right! The Lord's of Xulima director, and RPG Guru, Jesús Arribas will be signing and personally inscribing the awesome "Bestiary & Mythology" book. He will even write a unique dedication, just for you!  

This is going to be an extremely limited tier, as we are only doing this for only 20 copies at the $120 level. Anyone who pledges to the other rewards above $120 (such as naming an NPC at $140) will also get their Bestiary and Mythology book signed!  

It's very easy through Kickstarter to up your pledges if you are interested in having your copies signed!

Other Cool Projects We Recommend

We couldn't possibly be making an RPG to such caliber without being gamers ourselves! We wanted to share with you some other really awesome projects that are active on Kickstarter right now:   

You Are Not The Hero

If you haven't heard about this game yet, you really need to check it out fast as their campaign is on its final days. Ever wonder what NPCs are thinking about heroes barging into their homes and stealing out of chests? Well, we have. Stupid heroes coming in and trashing everything in sight!

Bloom : Memories 

This beautiful game really captured our hearts. You can actually play the entire game without ever harming anything (if you want). How is that going to work? We want to know! When you check this project out, make sure you also listen to the soundtrack.

Astral Terra 

We couldn't be more excited about this game. An RPG mixed with Minecraft sandbox elements? Yes, please. We are so curious to try this game out, that we backed it as well. We really hope this project makes it, because we want to play some multiplayer!

      We have to change the Gaulen's Moustache: Message received! :o)

      We are going to draw some variations for Gaulen so you can choose and comment which of them you like more.

      Thanks for the feedback!

      Yeah the mustache is not doing it for me. Even if it is a rough short beard, thats a better option IMO.

      Full beard(like Aragorn's) on Gaulen would look better, I think...

      I really like the cover as it is right now, the woman looks very cool and I really like the mage the grumpy face is awesome, Gaulen looks good but the mustache is kinda so so

      @Keith: Listening and doing! Soon we will release the new one with the improvements.Thanks to all, for your feedback!

      I'm glad others have spoken up about the mustache and that you are listening to feedback. A full beard sounds great, but even a more established mustache would be preferable. Thanks for listening!

      @Will Hernann: OK! It would be more realistic and consistent with the story that Gaulen has a full beard. He is an explorer who travels a lot in wild areas....
      We will make some touches for the thief- woman.

      Your feedback is always helpful!

      I think Peter is right about the comparison to the Evony ads, partly because they use the same "gauze filter" appearance that is on the woman, but not the other two characters. Also I noticed that the background is lighter on her side. If you cover up the woman, it's fairly dark and looks like people standing before a storm. If you cover up the two men, it's much brighter and might look like an Evony ad. I'm not sure if the solution is to flip the background or what, but it may help.

      Also it occurred to me that one of the reasons I think Gaulen's smile is off is his mustache. On the Trustworthiness of Beards scale (check it out on Google), his pencil-thin mustache rates in the "disaster" category, comparing it to John Waters and Joe Jackson. Consider giving him a full beard (like Aragorn) or goatee+mustache (like Boromir) or just make him clean shaven.

      Hope this feedback is helpful!

      The woman has that nice, reserved air of self-confidence, and is quite well-drawn in my opinion (especially compared to some other female portraits). It's fair to say that she does stand out a little among the 3, but not outrageously so.
      Also don't find mustaches very cool =P Maybe it's a culture thing, with famous Spaniard heroes proudly wearing one, but it feels out-of-context for a protagonist in a fantasy world.

      @Peter: That woman is one of the portraits for the thieve class, although you can select her for any other class of course. We will try to improve it :o).
      We wanted to offer a more friendly image that reflects better the general beauty of the game,because the other one, with the Titan was perhaps too dark and gloomy, although there at lot of thoses moments in the game.
      Thanks for the feedback!

      Honest comment: The overall design reminds me unpleasantly of the Civony/Evony "Come Play, My Lord" banner ads that used to be (are they still?) everywhere. It's primarily the too-realistic, seductive-looking woman with an open air or panoramic background. (The color scheme in the background probably does a lot of that work.)

      I have to vote no on Gaulen's mustache.

      The old man looks great.

      Something about Gaulen's smile seems a bit off. He looks like he's getting ready to kiss someone :-)

      Also, the woman's face looks unnaturally perfect because her skin tones are much more blended than on the other two. It's like she is wearing lots of makeup or there is a gauze filter on her face, making it unnaturally softer than the other two. I have no problem with the game having less magazine-looking women, especially if it makes her more consistent with the art style of the other characters.

      The old man looks just about perfect. Awesome!
