It's been a few crazy months around here and I figured it was time to touch base, say hello, and let you know about what is coming down the line.
First things first, if you did not receive your Storyteller Cards, let me know. There were a few returned packages and a few international shipments lingering out there, so if you still have not received yours please send me a message through Kickstarter and we'll straighten it all out.
We put together an all new website for Storyteller Cards. Instead of the blog format, this is one that's geared towards retail. We've been selling the cards direct to customers since they came in, and wanted to push the website further in that direction. It's finished and live, but will be ever-evolving as always. Any feedback is appreciated and if you can share the link online, it's always a big help. Check it out at http://www.storytellercards.com
Storyteller Cards: Fantasy
This is the big news. For the past few months, Campbell and I (along with some wonderful game designers) have been putting together the next version of Storyteller Cards. We've teased it before here, but now we have some solid dates and a few things to show off.
We'll be bringing Storyteller Cards: Fantasy to Kickstarter on Wednesday April 2nd. It's going to look and feel similar to the previous campaign, but with a few new tricks. We'd love to have all of you back for the next set. The illustrations will now feature a race and class (Gnome Thief), with a weapon (Longbow) completing an action, with an item, in a location. The icons will still include the rank/suit for traditional card games, but we added coins, 20 sided dice, and swords/shields/scrolls to help resolve conflicts. It's can get pretty nerdy, if you're into role playing games. But if you aren't, it's an all new fantasy-based setting to tell your stories and continue the adventures we established with the first deck.
I'd love to see the Storyteller Cards line continue with more and more themes, but as always, we'll need your support. A big day 1 launch on Kickstarter will mean great things for the lifespan of the project. I'll post an update here when we launch.
To coincide with the launch, we've made a Facebook virtual event for those who are interested. I'm hoping to host a local launch party for the deck, and share the fun with all of you who aren't lucky enough to be in South Jersey/Philly.

I've been hosting some events around here, and I know others have done the same, so if you have anything coming up where you will be using Storyteller Cards, please let me know! Or if you have already had an event using Storyteller Cards and you took pictures, let me know. Here's a great example from Brian Kolm of Atomic Bear Press using the cards as inspiration at the Cartoon Art Museum's Mini Comic Day in San Francisco.
Thanks again everyone, hope to see you on April 2nd!
