Unto Imperator Caesar Augustus, Princeps et Dominus

General Lucio Petronio Vero Massimo sends a report and drawing sketches

Your Highness, I hope that my news will bring you great joy and satisfaction, the Roman Empire is about to face a new Era!

As requested we’ve been sailing for months in pursuit of a humanoid race that would suit the requirements to Join the worldwide Football league, along with bringing greatness to our Empire.

I was very lucky to be amongst the few ships which discovered an Uknown and Unexplored Island not present on our naval cartography.

It was during the first explorations of this new territory that we found it’s inhabitants: they are a Fierce tribal culture, which proven to have a primordial sense of civilization since they are divided in two castes.

The first ones I nicknamed “Ogres” are the dominant species on the Island, and for a very clear reason: they are Huge, Tough and very Violent. It was almost impossible even for our armoured Pretorian Guard unit to subdue them when not alone at night time. They are naturally gifted for Sport games, especially Football since they know how to pack a punch in the enemy’s face and how to take a tackle without much damage. On the other side they showed a tendency to possess a quite restricted mindset, even some degree of stupidity and confusion at times, but we’ve found a solution to that:

The second caste, the “Snotlings”. We gave them this name because of their tiny dimension and wicked wits in comparison to the Ogres. Thanks to them we were able to guide the Big ones more easily, since it seems that these smaller creatures are used like slaves,guides and training dummies by them. Unexpectedly they demonstrated to possess also other more useful skills: They are faster than Ogres and due to their small stature they can easily dodge the enemies and prolong their short lifespawn on the field. Furthermore Ogres seems to love throwing them and use their natural aereodynamics aid due to the shape of their nose.

We’ve captured 9 of them, but we’ll find some more just in case.

Once properly trained in the ways and rules of our Sport, I’m sure they’ll crush everything on their path. There is no such enemy team that can withstand the Mightyness of our S.P.Q.R.

      Thought some of you might find this of interest:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cultofpaint/deorgard-by-cult-of-paint
       
      At Cult of Paint we've taught painting classes to hundreds of people all over the world. We make painting tutorials for YouTube and Patreon. We have signature series airbrushes with renowned manufacturer Harder & Steenbeck AND we produce a 54mm sci-fi miniatures range and bust collection that has won multiple international painting awards. Now it's time for something really cool............ OUR FIRST FANTASY MINIATURES RANGE!!!!! 
      Dræfend bust painted by David Colwell @davecolwell725 Ever since we created our sci-fi miniatures range we've had the bug for creating awesome models for people to enjoy painting. We LOVE fantasy settings and wanted to create our own world to explore the characters so often associated with fantasy and folklore, but with our own interpretations. And so Deorgard was born, with the elves being the first race we wanted to bring to life as gorgeous miniatures and busts......
      Heargeard bust painted by Rodrigo Ciprés @rodrigo.akore Releasing the range in one go ensures we create tonnes of excitement while also enabling painters to get their favourite models from day one with no long gaps between characters coming out. And it means we can crack on with working on more miniatures for you to add to your collections!
      As we begin to explore this wild land we wanted to introduce some elves from different regions of Deorgard.  PLAY  
      In Heargeard we meet a woodsman. A guardian of the forests and the dark places where some of the most ancient parts of the land still endure.
      Heargeard concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Painted by David Colwell ( yes that base is insane ) As the trees give way to the grasslands a hunter needs not only patience but the frightening speed and savagery to survive. Dræfend is one such elf who excels here. She has learned to hunt as part of a pack, accompanied by one of the great wolves that make their homes in the foothills nearby.
      Dræfend & Wulf concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Dræfend & Wulf painted by Ruben Martinez @rma_ruben_martinez The land rises sharply and great peaks soar towards the sky. Here we find another symbiosis of elf and beast. Whilst Sceotend may be blind she does not lack sight, her hawk's third eye providing unrivalled clarity and vision.
      concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Sceotend painted by Richard Gray @daemonrich An equally harsh environment can be found in the vast desert that covers much of the centre of Deorgard. In this ever-changing and ruthless sea of sand, those such as Læl's word is law. She is judge and executioner, swift and merciless at dealing out punishment to any transgressors. 
      Læl concept art by Max Fitzgerald @hieronymus_max Læl painted by Andy Wardle @andywardle_artwork As primal and challenging as the landscape of Deorgard is there are still places where societies have settled and thrived. Guardians such as Indryhten stand sentinel over sacred places and those elected by their peers to rule these bastions of advancement.

      Story
      Texts from here will be a mix between Italian and English language, they will be translated from the next week until the KS launch. The texts are subject to change, only the final page will be considered correct. 
      Let yourself be captivated by the magical atmosphere of Nova Aetas! 
      Set in the Italian Renaissance, this game will guide you through a fantastic, mythical campaign based upon the historic events of the war between Rome and Venice in the early 1500s.
      Nova Aetas: Renaissance is a reimplementation of the original game founded on KS in January 2016.  This new, improved version, is born from the experience gained during these years and will give you an even deeper experience by immersing  you and your group in a charming and mysterious Italy, full of historical characters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Caterina Sforza, and many others – both real and imaginary.
        Soon we will show all the remaining models and components.

      Those who know me well generally know what a massive Darkest Dungeon fan I am so I've been very good to not post about this one yet. I've been holding off 'til nearer release date to avoid putting a thread up too early. There is going to be a kickstarter for a Darkest Dungeon boardgame. This makes me happy. It will have miniatures! This makes my heart sing with Joy. It's going to be by Mythic Games. This makes me somewhat concerned. I've heard horror stories about their rulebooks needing updates and finally becoming playable  a year or two after release (or even in a second crowdfunding campaign if it's their Joan of Arc game).
       
      That being said it will have gorgeous miniatures that, while similar to many of the unofficial Darkest Dungeon miniatures, knock then pants off many of them. I'll probably be backing this for the figures alone but I appreciate any concerns that people might have.
       
      They claim they're looking to launch some time in late October or early November.
       

       

       
      There are a few more pictures and a handful of videos doing the rounds at the moment including two or three gameplay sessions. Here's what I was able to piece together from them.
       
      It’s a campaign game. You don’t play as the Heir. You play as the Heroes. You randomly generate dungeons then head inside making important choices about your resources (food, torches, spades etc). When you meet monsters you lay out a mini dungeon board and fight it out.
      Heroes and enemies occupy four positions. Attacker, Defender, Ranged and Support. The skills you can use are based on the position you’re in. The battles have a four round limit so they don’t drag on too long. Take too long and you have to retreat back into the corridor. Corridor encounters happen. There is a scouting system.
      Every 3 dungeons you have to tackle a boss dungeon. You randomly generate the boss beforehand and he has in town effects and other effects so you really want to get rid of him when the time comes. Boss battles are all or nothing. If you fail a boss battle you don’t retreat. You just loose the entire party.
      After 3 bosses you go into the Darkest Dungeon itself to end the game. So that’s 9 dungeon runs (or 12 depending on if the boss dungeon counts as part of the once every 3 dungeons frequency) then the end game run to complete the entire campaign.
      They currently only plan to have 8 core heroes in the game (you can bet the other 7 or 9 will be stretch goals). When you loose a hero there are two replacement heroes in the stagecoach. Take a new hero. The stagecoach does not appear to generate new heroes beyond these two replacement heroes. If one player’s hero dies and they are unable to obtain a replacement from the stagecoach then you all lose. Game over man. Game over.
      They intend to launch around late October or early November.
      Mythic kickstarter campaign lengths are as follows.
      Time of Legends: Joan of Arc 32 days
      Solomon Kane: 24 days
      Reichbusters 10 days
      Super Fantasy Brawl 8 days
      Time of Legends: Joan of Arc 1.5 15 days
      Enchanters: East Quest 11 days
      Steamwatchers 11 days
      Hel – the Last Saga 14 days
      So we’re probably looking at 8-15 days which is quite a short period to scrounge up cash in.

      Draco Studios, the folks that gave us Dragons of the Red moon, Legendary Dragons, and Dragonbond:Batttles of Valerna have launched another kickstarter.
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dracostudios/great-wyrms-of-drakha?ref=profile_saved_projects_live
       
      This time it's different.  It's Plastic versions of 7 of their dragons from previous campaigns, accompanied by a PDF or Hardcover book with 7 high level adventures (of 4 sessions) to fight each of them using D&D 5e along with some epic combat rules. new items, etc.
      There's also a free sample adventure
