Lurking at the Threshold

What ho,

Sorry things have been a little quiet here! I hope you're all enjoying your games. In this update, some details on our new Kickstarter and progress on The Butler at the Threshold!

New project from UFO Press on kickstarter

 

First up, I have a new RPG project on kickstarter. Legacy: Life Among the Ruins 2e is a game where you play survivors of a reality-twisting apocalypse. As you explore the wasteland around you, you'll find strange remnants of the old world, new creatures to fight or make deals with, and resources you can use to heal your family's ills and start rebuilding. As generations pass, your group will tell the story of how humanity adapts to this new world and rebuilds. If that sounds interesting, go check it out - we're almost 200% funded 4 days in so there's plenty of stretch goals unlocked too!

Butler on the Threshold still being worked on

We're still plugging away at The Butler at the Threshold, and hope to have a deck together before the end of the year. Shipping and warehousing charges for What Ho, World and Wizards Aren't Gentlemen ate up all the leftover money for this project and then some so we're sticking with public domain art and photography and stock art for now, but I don't think that's a great loss - check out these cards:

 Let us know what you think of the designs in the comments!

What this lack of funds also means is that we'll probably need to run another kickstarter to print the game. You'll all still get the PDFs, of course.

      Those cards look beautiful.

      @JR Thanks! I'm pretty happy with the look we ended up with.

      No worries! The public domain and stock really give it a wonderful look that you would be hard pressed to recreate. I think it looks grand! Well done and thank you.
      I like the dossier feel to the second possible design. It works well with the feel of the rest of the cards.
