Greetings, Button Men!
After a long delay, James has finally had time to work on the Button Murderer set. He's now planning to create a total of 18 new Button Men cards, available for free download from cheapass.com or for purchase from Drive Thru Cards.The set will include the sixteen murderers from Kill Doctor Lucky, as well as Doctor Lucky himself and a teaser character from the Island of Doctor Lucky (Kudos Gwynne).
The characters in this set have "Lucky" Dice. When you make an attack with a Lucky Die, if you don't like the first roll, you can roll it again and keep the second result. When a Lucky Die is captured, the dice that captured it gain the same ability for that roll. We're still in the final days of the Girl Genius: The Works campaign, so these cards are still a few days away from their final playtest.
James is also making progress on the Mapple maps! This map, not quite finished yet, represents the Central District ca 1986. As with real-world maps, some liberties have been taken with the neighborhood boundaries in order to make a functional game board. (It feels weird to make apologies for fudging the borders of fictional neighborhoods, but there it is.)
Until next time, thanks again for supporting Cheapass Games!
