Good Thursday everyone!
So first things, you may have noticed my posts have been quite sporadic as of late, I must be honest, and it's for a good reason. I've been using my travel time to and from work (which as you know is when I write most of my posts) to listen to the audiobook of Neil Gaiman's American Gods.
But that is not to say that things are not progressing! Far from it in fact!
That's right friends, my game CRYPTS is slowly growing and expanding as a game!
With every week or so more and more is being developed and I think that we are on the verge of a playable version of the game!
This is a very exciting time for me, to the extent I have been forced to think about how it is going to move ahead financially.
Now I would ask you all to remember that before anything else this was designed as a game that I personally want to play. This is not a financial money put for me, however I am making sure that I allow for the future possibility, just in case.
We currently have a temporarily working 60 card loot deck, 14 card encounter deck, 8 beasties and 2 bosses, and that is not including the upcoming cards in the form of Skin Walkers, three types of Other, Rachnoir Queen of the Skittering Shadow and The Skeleton King!
This will take us up to 12 Beasties and 4 Bosses!
From there i should be able to put out my initial 'free' copy of the game, available on demand from me. This will be on the grounds that I will NOT be using original art, and therefore do not want it on general release.
I will however then be able to get started on the main rule book, where I get to delve deeper into the rules, instead of the QuickStart summary, and also start piecing together the lore and fluff.
Anyway, I think I've rambled enough now, I'll leave you on this great news however; last night New Fairbank Radio recorded episode 20, our first game of the new rules for CRYPTS, and so far it seems super fun to play!
So on that note, stay safe and I'll see you Cryptside!
