First Mau Update of 2019!

Hello Excellent Cats!

Here's Eddy with this month's Realms of Pugmire Update!

Realms of Pugmire Update (January 2019) by Eddy Webb

It's time to ring in the new year, and talk all about the latest things happening in the Realms of Pugmire!

FETCH QUEST IS NEARLY HERE

All the people who needed to look at printing proofs have looked at printing proofs. I just heard that boxes are shipping from the printer. So backers will soon be getting word from James, our lovely Kickstarter concierge, about things like locking down pledges and the like!

I ran a game of Fetch Quest at Midwinter, where I've been playtesting it for a couple of years now. And two of the players have been in every game of it so far. They love the new changes, saying the pace and feel is a lot smoother now. And that's great to hear!

So get your gear together, because soon it'll be time to go on a quest!

ROLL OF GOOD DOGS AND EXCELLENT CATS

Speaking of things that are nearly here, the Mau stretch goal "Roll of Good Dogs and Excellent Cats" is also nearly ready! For those that backed at appropriate levels for the Mau Kickstarter, you'll be getting the beta version as a PDF download soon. If you see anything wonky, we'll have an errata thread for you to comment on. Otherwise, have fun with six new dog and six new cat characters for your Pugmire and Mau games!

PIRATES OF PUGMIRE

I just got the last of the first drafts in for Pirates of Pugmire, and I'm getting ready to dive in and read it. In fact, here's a very small taste of what's to come.

--

There I was, sat at the bar with a flagon of some concoction in my hand. I was prepared to turn in for the night when a parrot with stunning red feathers walked in, accompanying a sad-looking gecko with a shorn tail. I discovered their actual names long after their departure, but at the point they sat down, the parrot said “Stumpy will have the hotpot” and the gecko replied in turn “Pally will have an oatmeal. And grog for us both! We have business.” The barkeep dashed off and I was intrigued. Genuine pirates with genuine pirate business? I shifted to a closer stool and listened.

--

There's more to come as we gear up for our Kickstarter later this year!

Hello Excellent Cats!

Realms of Pugmire Update (December 2018) by Eddy Webb

We're getting close to the end of 2018. Just enough time for one more Realms of Pugmire update!

MAU IS MAKING LOTS OF FRIENDS Between you lovely Kickstarter backers and people pouncing on Mau's release, I've been hearing lots of great things! I could post all sorts of photos, tweets, Facebook messages, and the like from happy cats, but I'll leave you with one video that sums a lot of the excitement up

As always, if you have a question or concerns about your Kickstarter delivery, PLEASE contact our partners through Backerkit: https://monarchies-of-mau.backerkit.com/faq#contact-us

PIRATES ARE SETTING SAIL Meanwhile, we're deep in the first draft process of Pirates of Pugmire! It's still early days, so I don't have a lot to share, but one thing we're discussing and testing a lot is a system for making, sailing, and fighting ships! We're trying to find the right balance of fun, challenging, and ease of understanding that Pugmire and Mau are known for. But fear not, puppies and kittens, a Kickstarter is on the horizon. You'll be fighting kraken and throwing people overboard before you know it!

THE REALMS OF PUGMIRE AT MIDWINTER! The Midwinter Gaming Convention has been the spiritual home for the Realms of Pugmire for a number of years now. I'll be running a Fetch Quest tournament there -- if you participate, you'll get an EXCLUSIVE Midwinter pioneer card, and the winners get to play an ALL-NEW quest deck! There are still plenty of slots, so sign up today! https://tabletop.events/conventions/midwinter-gaming-convention-2019/schedule/144

There are also lots of other Guides eager for good dogs and excellent cats to partake in new adventures!

AND IN A VERY DIFFERENT WORLD WHERE HUMANKIND STILL EXISTS:

The Kickstarter for They Came From Beneath The Sea! is now live!

They Came From Beneath The Sea! is a new tabletop RPG from Onyx Path, encompassing the wonder, horror, thrills, and hilarity of 1950s science fiction. This game evokes all that is great in the B-movies of decades ago, and provides a dynamic, fun experience at the table.

The players, as humans, live in a world under increasing attack. The attackers? Aliens from beneath the sea, obviously!

Adventures can range from the one-shot defense of small coastal town, to the lengthier liberation of a cruise ship invested with gill-kin, all the way to a campaign in which characters seize an alien submarine and ride it all the way down to the sea bed to take the fight to the invaders.

Put down your malt shakes, turn on the jukebox, and prepare your harpoons! You don’t want to be caught unawares when it’s revealed that They Came From Beneath The Sea!
