Hey guys! 

Today we have a bit shorter update, but it will include important vote! Time to work on our 2nd character that will join the team of 3rd campaign that we are currently unlocking at nice pace! 

But before that, our amazing artist, Piotr managed to do a small re-work on Naazar. Hope you will like this version better ;) We certainly do! 

Reddit AMA

In about an hour, Marcin (owner of Awaken Realms and co-author of Tainted Grail) will be on Reddit Board Games to answer all the questions you might have. Hope you guys will join us there!

Second Community Vote – Build Your Own Knight!

Now, for the most exciting part of this update – a second community vote! With Cartographer already done, there were two other concepts that gathered a lot of support both in KS comments and in the FB poll. One was a broken knight / dark knight / squire, and the other – a beast master o tamer. For now, we’ve decided to focus on the former.

Now, let’s create the best knight character we can!

We’ve asked our artist to go as broad as possible, and he came up with a nice array of varied designs for your consideration. There’s a fallen knight with a broken blade, there’s a mysterious dark knight, there’s a man suffering from the Read Death who tries to hide his affliction, there’s a “Deus Vult” type straight from the Holy Lands (or whatever passes for them in this fantasy world), finally - a one-handed swordsman with a sword he can no longer properly use, yet refuses to abandon…

We prepared 5 different concept arts this time, so vote on them! Let us know which one you like best. As usual, it would be great if you could confine voting to the comment section of this update only. Let’s leave general campaign comments for other discussions :)

Once we will choose the design, Krzysztof will create a back-story for him ;)

      1 for sure. He looks like a more "refined" knight" so he could have an awesome back story as to why he isn't as celebrated as other knights. This could also tie into his handicap that he's trying to keep secret.

      #4 - First choice: The characters in the game seem to be the downtrodden non-heroes of the world. This guy looks like life hasn't gone well for him. The perfect everyman for this game!

      #5 - Second choice: Reminds me of #4, but even more unfortunate. However, if you've lost a hand, you're going to have to make up for it with a different weapon.

      1. i prefer this idea of crusader of the holy grail. Or tainted grail.

      3 or 1 ☺

      1 or 5 all the way. 1 has a lot of potential and 5 drips character. The others are a bit bland for the world of TG

      I vote for # 2
      I think this is more relevant to the archetype knight / warrior and fits well with the cartographer's artwork. The pose is also very dynamic.

      I love the background potential of # 5, but not enough agressivity and determination for my taste in the conceptart.
      # 1 is too archetypal
      # 3 is too dark and static
      # 4 is not charismatic enough

      1 - Nice but Too Heroic for the theme
      2 - Too Monty Python
      3 - Looks like a walking armoury (too many weapons). Why the veil?
      4 - (My choice) Broken sword says to me that he's had one too many battles. Close to end of his lifes journey, maybe his last adventure in more ways than one.
      5 - If I'd lost a hand and was a knight the first thing I'd do is trade that "2 hander" for a 1 hander. Cloak collar looks like a feather bower...

      I think 2 or 3 are the best. I love the kind of dark, gritty feel of number 2. Number 3 feels a bit more of the "waderer" vibe.

      1 or 5, though I must admit the design space possibilities for 5 make it a runaway.
