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!
