New Adventure & Miniature Previews

Posted by Angus Abranson / Chronicle City (Creator)

Hi everyone!

Many thanks for helping us pass our £26,000 stretch goal over night! We can now include some new full colour artwork in the main book and everyone who has pledged for a physical rulebook will also now be sent a pad of 24 Character Sheets completely free at the same time we send the rulebooks out! The retailers who have backed us will also be sent one pad per copy too.

Our next goal is at £29,000 which is for the Gamemaster Screen & NPC Booklet. You can read more about that in Update 5.

So, I guess it's time to unveil our next two Stretch Goals...

First up, at £37,000, is a new adventure by Shane Ivey and John Clements...

LOCKED £37,000 - Adventure (32 page) : "On the Trail of the Gods" by Shane Ivey (Arc Dream Entertainment; Delta Green; Wild Talents) and John Clements. Adventurers, explorers, and loyal subjects of the Empire must pursue a disreputable scientist and thwart a conspiracy of renegade Prussians. But is their quarry a victim needing rescue or a traitor to be brought to justice? The adventure takes them from the Great Exhibition in Scotland to the sands of Sudan, the jungles of Venus, and the deepest, deadliest mysteries of Mars.

...and then at £40,000 we're unveiling our first set of miniatures. We have two concepts pieces to show you straight away and will post others as the campaign progresses and we receive the designs from our partners at Elemental Miniatures who are making the designs. The miniatures will be available as a set of 5 (four standard and one mounted) as a purchased Add-On at £25 (+ postage) during the Kickstarter campaign.

The first five miniatures are The Explorer, The Missionary, The Martian Princess (who are all based on the Archetype images shown in the Art Deals on our front page) and also a Highland Martian and a Hill Martian on Gashant.

Here's a look at the first two pre-production concept designs...

That's it for now!

Thanks for all of your continued support and please keep helping spread the word about the campaign on Facebook, Twitter, G+ and the various RPG forums out there!

All the best,

Angus & Patric

      Thanks for the quick response Angus. Sounds good!

      I love Shane's work (and Arc Dream in general)!

      I definitely hope we make it to the adventure!

      I'm glad that the miniatures are there for those that will use them and they look great!

      Thanks Runeslinger. Shane has teamed up with John Clements to write the adventure. The adventure has already been plotted out as far as I'm aware and the deadline is sufficient that there shouldn't be a problem in completion in time. The release date for this Adventure is about 1-2 months after the core rulebook comes out.

      I am loving the focus that has been put on the book itself in this Kickstarter. I have some concerns about Arc Dream's involvement with an adventure, however. They do awesome work, but they have a lot of big projects going now and are only human, so the timeline for fulfilment for them may be affected if it has not yet been written. You seem to have considered all the other possible problems with this project, so I am wondering if this is the case. Has the adventure already been written?

      They are- the bases shown are not quite to scale as these are pre-production images.

      Are the miniatures 28mm?
