Empyreal Art Update + Argent Supporters + BattleCON Unleashed
It's been about a month, so I'm back with another update on Empyreal: Spells & Steam!
Art is coming along at a steady pace, and we have some new stuff to show off for you! Check out some new supporters!
Here are a few rougher works-in-progress. In case you're curious how some of our past backer-created characters are faring in the new industrial age. :D
We should hear back from production on our miniatures progress in the next month or so, and I look forward to showing you what they come up with!
In the As Above, So Below expansion, we will be introducing Metros–special delivery spots that have unique rules, leading to a wildly different game experience. One of these Metros is Argent University, previously introduced in Trey's first board game project, Argent: the Consortium.
Once you complete a delivery to Argent, you'll be able to claim one of these unique and powerful specialists as your reward. Unlike other specialists, the Argent Specialists deploy a marker which permanently changes some aspect of the board or your engine!

Unleashed is the last planned project in the BattleCON line, which launched the World of Indines series (of which Empyreal is the latest part). With Unleashed, you'll have one of the most beloved battle card games in the world on your table, in all its remastered, rebalanced glory. The project has 4 parts:
- BattleCON: Devastation Remastered - A new edition of the classic (or an upgrade kit, for those who own the original).
- BattleCON: Unleashed - A giant storage box that holds all the fighters in the series in stylish tuckboxes.
- BattleCON: Wanderers - A new 10-fighter expansion containing fighters designed by veterans of the series.
The Grand Chronicle - A collection of the full lore of the world of Indines, alongside character biographies and plotlines.
