Thane, the Winter Wolf

Posted by League of Geeks (Creator)

Thane is a name that many who border the clan’s mountainous region know well. From a young pup, tournaments, duels and challenges have fallen in his favour and gained him fame and celebrity status within the clan. This wolf’s skills with a longsword fast became legend, but alas, Thane’s carefree antics drew ire from his father; a weathered, iron wolf of wars passed and adventures trodden, who saw only his son’s inability to lead the clan.

Now with his father slain and his brother in exile, that day has come and this renowned sword is still a pup, not yet a wolf.

Mercurio is a skillful and cunning swordsman, but even he has to be worried behind that grin of his right now.

We hope you enjoyed the first introductory spotlight for Thane, the Winter Wolf. Expect to see more heroes soon! Incidentally, the animated 3D model of Thane shown above is rendered from both the in-game model and animation that you'll find in the iPad version of Armello.

Plugs!

This is the League of Geek's first experience on Kickstarter, and we've come to realise that there's many very deserving projects here along side us. And we're really happy to give them a plug! The first is Chaos Reborn, from the creator of the original X-Com game. That's some serious cred right there, and worthy of your attention! Chaos Reborn is a fast paced, turn-based tactics RPG with monsters and magic. It's online multiplayer, has rankings, co-op mode and a large single player campaign. 

Chaos Reborn is in it's final 3 days so jump over and check it out!

      So, do that mean that his brother is in the Bandit clan ?

    2. Christopher Bo Zhang on

      O_o Is he right handed or left handed? It seems to keep jumping around...

      Tobias - *And by *mammering* I do mean *hammering*. :)

      Jeff - Hmm. Posters. Now there's an idea!

      John - welcome!

      Kristoffer - life's too complex for a young wolf who just wants to have fun!

      Marc - you're correct, of course, Mercurio is the ultimate trickster. Thane had better try using his head too!

      Theobeau - Thanks!

      Tobias - Hoping we can perhaps rectify this mirror issue by mammering our goals and paying for a whole heap of correct-handed artwork! :)

      So, umm. Is Thane left handed or right handed? Resources are conflicting. ^_^;

      Be careful with mirroring such things. Non-symmetrical character designs require a bit more care. I remember what they had to do with Zelda: Twilight Princess between the Wii and GC versions, heh.

      Congrats on raising 1/2 total in such a short time and on supporting other KS campaigns.

      Thane looks great!

      Mercurio never worries, he plans! Each step Thane takes is one step closer to meeting his fate on the tip of the rat's sword.

    8. Kristoffer Brandberg on

      How interesting! I'm going to enjoy playing Thane the Winter Wolf.
      But I imagine leading a clan would complicate things so much more now when Thane's arm somehow got contracted with the Rot.

    9. John LaTemple on

      Thanks for the heads-up about Julian's project!

    10. Jeff Wolfhope on

      I think I should get a Thane poster or something, just due to my name! :)

      Fuzzy - Yes, the camera will zoom down to inspect a battle when you're in it! We have a dynamic camera system that loves to make things as dramatic as possible! (Standard play camera won't make you giddy!)

      Martin - The day he he must lead his clan :)

      "Now with his father slain and his brother in exile, that [b]day[/b] has come and this renowned sword is still a pup, not yet a wolf." Could be its just me being an idiot, but what day?

    13. Fuzzy on

      It's nice to see a little more background on one of the characters! I hope we can look forward to this with the others.

      Also, that jump attack animation is cool. I'm glad to see you guys making use of the computer medium to set it apart from just being a board game transcribed to the screen. :) Will that sort of thing happen dynamically while the battle proceeds as well?
