Art, Worldbuilding and Pre-Production


Hi! It's been 10 days since the campaign finished and we wanted to start with the series of updates where we will let you know what is going on behind the scenes while you are waiting to receive your copy of Cavern Tavern.

The Art

All of the art for Cavern Tavern is pretty much done, except for a few pieces that was unlocked through stretch goals.

We wanted to take this opportunity to introduce you to Keishara. She's a worker in Cavern Tavern and one of the six protagonists along with the Wizard, Nasty the Dwarf and Mrs. Nasty. Keishara belongs to the race Green Elves, somewhere known as Sea Elves. She's a badass but has a very gentle soul. :)


We had a discussion with the writer for the lore of The Five Realms and we have to tell you that the world of Cavern Tavern is shaping up in something that you will enjoy reading!

In the meantime, here is a map of The Five Realms. 

This piece of art by The Mico will be featured on the back of the cards for the Story mode of the Solo variant where you will be helping the Wizard bring the races closer together and work toward a piece in The Five Realms.


With the art almost done (100% done in 3-4 days) the pre-production process of the game is going as planned. We've sent the proofs to the manufacturer for the custom dice, so they can be prepared before the printing starts.

Also, we've hired an industry professional who is working on the rules as we speak, from a technical perspective. We all read frustrating and complicated rulebooks and we don't want that to happen in Cavern Tavern. He will do a structural editing, stylistic editing, copy editing and proofreading of the rulebook.

Shipping Information

In one of the next updates we'll go over the details about the information that we need from you concerning shipping address, number of copies that you pledged for etc.

Note for the backers at the $119 level. Expect a message from us in the next couple of days. We'll need the information about the name of the order that you chose and the name that you want to be added in the Rulebook in the special thank you section. So, if you still haven't decided on the name yet, please hurry :)


Unless something important happens in the meantime, the next update will probably be a week from now in Wednesday.  

If you want to be connected with us on a more frequent basis, you can join The Five Realms group on Facebook, where we'll talk about the lore of The Five Realms.
