A New Collaboration!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to our new backers who joined this adventure! Today is a day filled with wonderful news (shocker, huh?) :)

We are always working hard to give more depth to the universe of Mysthea and today we have a big announcement to make. We reached an agreement with UFO Press, a publisher specialized in the creation of wonderful tabletop RPGs. 

They have already run several Kickstarter campaigns before, you can go check out their most successful project "Legacy: Life Among the Ruins" to have an idea of the quality of their works. 

We decided to collaborate with UFO Press to create together an amazing tabletop RPG set in the world of Mysthea! In the RPG it will be possible to create your own characters and also to manage Guilds, creating new layers of gameplay unique to their RPG system!

The eerie world of Mysthea!
The eerie world of Mysthea!

Since we love our community and appreciate the commitment you all are showing in the expansion of Mysthea lore, we want our backers to step in! In order to show our appreciation to you, we would like to have one of your creations to become a character or even a class of this upcoming RPG of Mysthea

In order to suggest your character or class, we are asking you to click this topic on Board Game Geek Volfyirion’s forum where you explain your character and their background or a class you think might fit this world, as some of you already did! Afterwards, give a thumbs up on the comments you prefer. Thus, the judges will be our backers and our friends at UFO press.

We are very thrilled to have reached this agreement which allows us to expand the universe of Mysthea and to create and evolve even more this eerie world which inspired us, Travis, and all of our community members as well!

Stretch Goal Unlocked

Many of you requested us to boost the asymmetry of the game and for this reason we created the Perk Cards that are now unlocked!

New type of Cards!
New type of Cards!

Players will be able to choose (or to randomly choose) an ongoing ability for their House. They will benefit from such perk each turn, as these cards cannot be removed by the opponent. 

We are still testing various mechanics, but we can tell a bit of one card: the Anomaly Collider! The player who owns it can decide to Seal one of their Wonder Cards in play to immediately gain Knowledge Points equal to the Wonder Card cost. 

Freddy Artwork!

We received the artwork of Freddy from Travis! He did an amazing job as always and we are very happy to share it with all of you!

4th week winner and 1 more translation!

And now we will announce the Fourth Weekly Reward! 

We are happy to announce that the most active backer this week is: 

Congrats!!
Congrats!!

Jakub Guber Križan has been active in several ways, not only by clarifying everyone's doubt in the comments, but also by translating Volfyirion's rulebook in Slovak

So, we think he deserves a round of applause for giving Volfyirion the chance to have another community source translation! Below you can find the link to his translation:

We would also reassure and thank everyone who has been really active in our campaign so far. It was really hard for us to choose this final week winner, because of the numerous people committed to Volfyirion both here and in Board Game Geek! The surprises are not over yet, though! We appreciate all of our backers' help, and for this reason we would love for you to continue keeping alive the comment section: runner-ups who followed along the four winners will be rewarded as well! So stay tuned to see what we have in store!

An inspired Stretch Goal!

Then, we want to thank Paolo Varotto for an upcoming Stretch Goal! We got inspiration for one of the Ploy Cards from a suggestion Paolo made inside a topic in Board Game Geek, and for this reason we will give him a special credit inside the rulebook! Thank you, Paolo!

That is it for today!

      @Douglas: Looking forward to this game even if I have to confess that the Apocalypse Engine isn’t my favourite system. But every RPG book is a treasure loot ;)

      @Douglas Santana Mota - thanks for the clear answer!

      @Freddy and other
      Thanks for the enthusiasm!
      As @René Schultze properly put, a tabletop RPG loses a lot of its charm in solo play. Also, these days there are so many good platforms for remote play that you can easily schedule games with people across the globe, either as play by post or in live channels. So, our objective is to present an awesome RPG to play with your friends, wherever they are.
      With that said, the possibilities of solo play intrigued us and you can be sure we will work on it at some point... and surely the community's help for feedback, ideas and playtest will be vital when we get there!
      Hope to have you all onboard for the ride.
      :-)

      @René Schultze - ofcourse a single player will not be the same experience as a group of friends with a DM. But as can be seen from many KS campaigns (including this one)... there is a high demand for solo modes in games (see also the several questions in the comments below). So it would be great if UFO Press could make it very clear upfront whether those people can expect a solo mode, or if that's not planned.

      I want to give you money for that...

      So, so excited!!!!!

      It’s an RPG - not a Lone Wolf adventure book ;)
      It‘s one of the best things of an RPG that you play with your friends to create a story - together! One player and one GM can create so many great stories. But a single player without a GM? Will not be the same experience.

      @Douglas Santana Mota - thanks for the additional info. Can you answer people's concerns (see below) about whether it will have a dedicated solo mode?

    9. Douglas Santana Mota on

      Hi folks... I am the co-author of Legacy: Life Among the Ruins 2nd Ed, and part of the team developing the Mysthea RPG. It is indeed Powered by the Apocalypse, but our additional systems to deal with dual level play (Guild / Hero) and generational play (where years and decades might pass by during a campaign) have grown its own wings!
      I am thrilled to share it all with you, and it will be a pleasure to answer any questions and listen to suggestions, etc.
      Cheers!

      I have submitted my guy to the thread, i couldn't click that link fast enough lol. Ive always had a fascination with golems and such, so what a great opportunity to share [even if it isn't used]!

      So happy you guys like the card! Thanks!

      @Antonio Soto Patiño - given how popular the solo mode turned out to be for Volfyirion, I would be very surprised if they don't include a campaign in the RPG that can also be played solo.

      It's nice the RPG book project. One question, though: will it be playable somehow solo, solitaire? I almost only back up projects that give me the possibility to play in a serious solo way, not just a fake improvised solitaire, and even less if there isn't at all.
      Regards,
      Antonio

      @Yves St-Denis - no virus in my email... maybe one of the images in the email contains a byte sequence that resembles that of the virus? Anyway, to be safe, better do a full scan of your computer!
