Update #129

Something's on the horizon...

Now that the DreadBall Kickstarter campaign is over, a lot of people are asking what's next for the Futuristic Sports Game. Well, DreadBall Extreme (as mentioned in the closing pages of the Season 3 rulebook) is a little way off yet, but there's something rather exciting coming along at the start of 2014 that will keep things interesting... 

Who wants a little sneak peek? 

The Yndij are a little-known race from the Outer Sphere, known to be hostile towards the GCPS, but every rule has an exception. A’teo "The Savage" Adysi’s story has inspired countless vidcast serials and documentaries – after all, who could resist the tale of a feral savage who arrived in the Core without a single credit, looking to seek his fortune, only to rise to superstardom in the world of DreadBall?

As the only player of his race to tread the neodurium, Adysi (carefully managed by his sponsors in Carver, Inc.) does not have a home team, instead providing his services to anyone willing to pay his substantial hiring fee. He plays with untamed ferocity, and has generated a legion of fans who are crying out for more Yndij to join the game…

      Robert, there's also the part "a legion of fans who are crying out for more Yndij to join the game" that gives hope to see a team later in the game ;)

      Hmmm, a lot of people seem to have missed the line about him being the ONLY person of his race to play DB. I look forward to getting him and my Martian DB team. :)

      If you guys had a Reb option Deadzone starter box I'd be tempted. I'm not interested in the Enforcers or the Plague.

      I like the sketch. Higher priority to me is getting the rules for all the Kickstarter MVP's we received in the final shipment. That detail looks to have been forgotten in all the frenzied activity at Mantic HQ.

      I would absolutely LOVE a whole Yndij team, and would go absolutely nuts over a Sphyr team! Yes Mantic, bring it on!

      Mantic, any update on the season 3 rule books? I am still waiting for mine and some of the miniatures.

      Thank you James! I have forwarded the original email I sent to Sarah on to you. Thanks again for responding!

      Mixed teams would be awesome for DBX - for regular DB I like the single race teams. However new races and MVP are always welcome :D

      As others have said; we totally need a team of these, as well as teams for the other deadzone rebel races; let's bring the team total to 16 mantic :)

      @Jason - Really sorry about that, Sarah (who answers our emails) is absolutely snowed under - we're all pitching in to help her out, though, and the backlog is disappearing. It's been a busy few months! If you like, drop me a line at james.hewitt@manticgames.com and I'll sort it out for you :)

      Jeej, bring it on....although I've only managed a dozen or so games and a single, completed team thus far ;-)

      I hope we see more of the aliens introduced in the Rebs faction turn up as full fledged teams in Dreadball!

      I like the feral/tribal look. Any updates on when we're going to be getting our season 2 team boosters?

      Creator Franklin Roberts III on November 15

      Hell's yeah!!!
      I think that a whole team of Yndij Dreadballers would fit the bill. Or "mixed race" Rebs team!
      We have the Teratons. why not add the Golioths and Sharky chaps to the mix as well???

      Yes please.

      And the rest of the Reb aliens too while you are at it. I want a shark man Guard :)
