The Book of Eretsu Update, New Golems, and BattleTech!

Posted by Harebrained Schemes LLC (Creator)

Hello backers!  

It's hard to believe it's been just a year since we released Golem Arcana at GenCon in 2014. This year, it was so great seeing so many familiar faces at GenCon and to see so many passionate people playing Golem Arcana. We couldn't have had these experiences without your support.

The Book of Eretsu (World of Eretsu) Update

It’s been a long time in coming, but the The Book of Eretsu (known in the Kickstarter as World of Eretsu) Golem Arcana Lore Book is now in its final stages of development! While we’re putting in the finishing touches, here’s a sneak peek of what’s to come.

If you pledged at the $20 level or above, you’ll receive a link to the digital download of the Book of Eretsu PDF in your BackerKit account. It will also be available for digital download internationally, or Print on Demand physical copy domestically, from our webstore.

Looking for some new Golems for your Army?

With so many Golems, it’s hard to keep track of which ones were available during the Kickstarter and which ones weren’t. We thought we’d take the opportunity to highlight the new releases here. These are available on our web store or at your Friendly Local Game Store.

HBS Returns to Kickstarter with BATTLETECH

Golem Arcana was the first miniatures boardgame created here at Harebrained Schemes, but it certainly was not the first created by co-founder, Jordan Weisman. Because so many of you came to support us with trust earned over many years of battling as a MechWarrior, you might like to know that today we return to Kickstarter with BATTLETECH, a turn-based tactical combat game for PC, Mac, and Linux. In many ways, BattleTech is the progenitor of Golem Arcana, and we hope you’ll be as excited as we are to revisit this classic miniatures game in a digital setting.

      I completely forgot about the ebay! Oops.
      I was so excited when I got my golems it slipped my mind.
      And I finally managed to convince a friend to buy in, but we haven't had the chance to play yet.

      It's hard to believe it's been a year since Golem Arcana was released, but there's still no communication on the promised Windows App!
