Prototypes, P'n'P, New Illustrations, Pre-order and This Month

Attention Legionaries, 

Hopefully both cards and dice have treated you nicely over the last month. Burning Rome is moving forward as planned and things look good :)

I just had a play test session yesterday with a gaming group close to home, and people were very happy with the game. A few FAQs need to be answered about timing abilities, but other than that.."It's rock solid and the mechanics are well merged with the theme", were the responses :)

Prototype

I've reached out to all Prototype Backers. I still need a few answers before I can start the local printing of the Burning Rome Prototype (printed by LaserTryk in Denmark). 

I'll send a reminder for any missing answers.

Barbarian Uprising Prototype will similarly be printed by LaserTryk in late November I believe. It still needs some more development. I want it to be a solid experience when it reaches you, even though we'll still have a long time to fine tune and balance it. Also against the final Burning Rome game once it has shipped :)

P'n'P

Last month I made the Print'n'Play files ready for you all. This means that you have received a PM from me through Kickstarter with a link to the P'n'P item from my webshop. 

The PDFs will be updated with the final versions, once the Chinese manufacturer starts the printing and assembling of the game.

New Illustrations 

My illustrators have been working on the last card illustrations for the game, and here are the result put on some of the cards. 

The Roman Auxiliary is missing for now, but will soon be there :)

That would be before he lost his eye ;)

The Auxiliary units contain more variation on the same picture, to illustrate the diverse troops the auxiliaries could consist of.

Pre-order

If you have any friends who want to jump on the burning wagon, they can pre-order the game here: http://selz.co/VJSGFK9dm

  . . . As you can see the price is similar to the Kickstarter, however, shipping has been completely left out, so that will be added on top, which should make the Kickstarter price very fair.

This Month

My to-do for this month (October) looks like this:

  • Printing the final Burning Rome Prototypes and ship them. 
  • Finalize the rules and the cards for proofing and print at Whatz Games.

  • Next update in end October/start November.

Thank you for all the support :) 

Best regards Emil

      Gorgeous and amazing. It's great to hear from you. I really love the new "general" and "auxilia" cards. Incredible art.
