SPECIAL EUROVISION UPDATE
In case you weren't aware, the final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 is taking place today! For those of you outside of Europe (and Australia, for some reason) who might not be aware of what a Eurovision is: it's possibly the greatest music contest on earth, featuring everything from the ridiculous to the brilliant to the politically charged.
So to celebrate the glorious absurdity that is Eurovision, we thought we'd have a bit of fun with this year's contest. Whatever country wins tonight, we will recognise their achievement by adding a creature card to the game inspired by the mythology and folklore of that country.
Here's how it's going to work. After the winner is announced, we'll take your suggestions for mythological creatures from that country that you'd like to see added to the game. Using your suggestions, we'll make a shortlist of creatures and you'll be able to vote on which one to turn into a card. Then, we'll show you the development of that card as we produce a final name and art description for it and, after the Kickstarter, you'll get to see the final card art.
Let us know in the comments who you want to see win tonight! In the meantime, here are some ideas for creatures from different countries that could be transformed into cards.
The Cheval Mallet (France): An evil horse that supposedly appeared in the middle of the night and would tempt weary travellers; anyone who tried to ride it would disappear, never to be seen again.
The Ramidreju (Spain): A weasel-like creature with a long, snake-like body, green fur and tusks. Supposedly, they were hunted for the fur, which could cure any sickness.
