Early October Update

13 likes

We’re plugging away here at CP Fnord. Two of the promised scenarios from Steve, “GEV Escort” and “Dogpile,” have been up for review and suggestions at http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/scenarios/, and a third, “Gauntlet,” has now been posted. Please have fun with them and then come back to the forums and give us your battle reports and feedback. Definitely more to come here as we anticipate a steady stream of scenario releases over the coming weeks.

New Unit rules – the last of the “new” units, the Ninja, will be posted soon on our website at http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/new-units/. This unit has gone down a path that Steve always envisioned, but only now has seen fleshed out. Even more so than the Vulcan, it has departed from what has come before. Please take it out for a spin or 30; we’re hoping for lots of play-test feedback on this! Your input on the forums will be invaluable. Each Ninja should be a unique creation; now they can be!

Those of you who don’t frequent the forums, or check in on the “Ogre News” at http://www.sjgames.com/ogre/, may have missed the announcement about the Ogre map generator. Tom Cornwell has created an impressive tool to create your own Ogre/G.E.V. maps. Check it out at http://forums.sjgames.com/showthread.php?t=146041.

As per the last Update, we’re making headway on the plastic minis. Look for an announcement on this very soon!

Speaking of more to come, it sounds like Tom Smith is close to completing the final tracks of the Ogre music. We look forward to getting this out as a free download to everyone who sponsored at $25 or above.

The scenario contest pdf is in its final stage of production, and should be sent out in the near future. Thank you everyone for going over the recent draft and offering your suggestions. Ogre Scenario Book 2 is truly a compilation of amazing ideas by some of our fantastic fans!

Like the Ogres themselves, the renaissance of Ogre support marches on. Stay tuned!

Plastic Ogre Miniatures Update

35 likes

We're getting closer to making an official announcement, but we thought many of you would want a peek at the test shot of the first plastic Ogre miniature. We're still working with the factory so this may not be 100% final, but we're getting close to nailing down Sculpt One. Additionally, we've reviewed CAD files for other units, and the project continues to move forward.

More Ogre news to come, as we're now about one week from the pre-mortem for Ogre Reinforcements. Once that's knocked out, the files will head to print, and we'll continue moving forward on the set of plastic Ogre miniatures.

In other news, the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game has surpassed its funding goal and already broken through the first stretch goals. If you're a GURPS fan, please take a look at the project today and join in on this big GURPS boxed game. We've reduced shipping costs for EU and Australian supporters, dropped shipping costs by $10 for all backers thanks to stretch goals, and are on track to deliver the game on schedule.

Around his work on the Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game, Brandon Moore teamed with Steve and Gabby to finalize the cover for the upcoming Ogre Reinforcements expansion. We thought you guys might enjoy this first look at the cover, complete with title treatment and crop marks!

This new pack of Ogre units, scenarios, and rules is coming together great, and we're on track to ship this off to print early in October for release in 2017.

Wow.

We received hundreds of entries, ranging from the profound (PLTO, ASTL, DCRT or RENE, ZENO, KANT) to the pro-food (SNAP, KRKL, POP and BNGR, MASH, PEAS), from the martial (ARES, MARS, TYR or WAR, DETH, PEST) to the cute (HUEY, DEWY, LUEY and CTRL, ALT, DEL). There were literary references (EDGR, ALLN, POE), musical references (ERTH, WIND, FIRE plus SLY, FMLY, STN) and cinematic ones (MLCM, WASH, RIVR). Some themes were common sources to mine (SPOK, BONES, KIRK, MCOY, KHAN, PKRD and HRRY, HRMN, RON, VMRT, DMBL plus DRTH, VADR, LUKE, HAN, LEIA, C3PO, R2D2, CHWY and of course STEV, JKSN, GMS with the obligatory SPIK, FLWR, DRGN). We received 32 entries from “sgbeal” alone! Definitely some funny ones there. And I personally have to give a shout out to GOOD, BAD, UGLY and MCHL, GBRL, RPHL. I hope to find a way to use those at some point! 

But in the end, one trio stood out above the rest. They were actually mentioned by a couple of contestants in one form or another, but “Ben” was the first to provide us with our winning entry: VENI, VIDI, VICI. Congratulations, Ben! If you would be so kind as to send your contact info to kickstart@sjgames.com, with a note saying, “Give Steve this info - I won the naming contest!”, we’d appreciate it.

Thank you everyone for your participation and submissions. It won’t shock me at all to see some of these names creep onto Ogres rumbling by in the future!
