Playtesting had to wait this week as we held lengthy discussions on our magic system and its integration with subclasses and skills. Now our spell calculator works wonders and it’s easy to use as well as having the magic system be easy to grasp! This means next week will be the week for playtesting!
Today we polished the rules and mechanics of our magic system. We also revamped existing characters according to the updated game system and they are now ready for new playtesting sessions. On the business side of things, we wrote Aether Void’s first official investment proposition, meaning we’re now one step closer to reeling in our first investor!
We’ve had a blast at Spiel last week. Met some amazing people and watched and played stunningly brilliant games! Handing out flyers and we’re going to make sure to have a stand next year. This first picture is an awkward mandatory groupphoto of when we arrived.
We’ve met Nigel Matthews of GamesQuest and the creator of the game PetEvil, Joseph Liano. They had some very valuable and insightful info for us and we’ll be sure to stay in touch with them. Be sure to check them out (PetEvil is currently on kickstarter!)
Another gem we found was Cubicle7 with a The Lord of the Rings RPG, the books were gorgeous and something we really aspire to have when we launch Æthervoid.
We’ve been tuning the gears of our Clock…uh I mean, game. We’ve been working on an audio-moodboard for our sound designer in order to give some feel to the #fantasy world of Far Haven. We have also been working on balancing #gameplay and wrapping up our charactersheet.
Clock is nearly finished with the preperations for my business trip to New London. All thats left to do is to wait for the latest batch of my concoctions to finish before we can actually leave. May I find plenty of gullible fools who haven’t yet had the pleasure to meet Trader Tom and his top-notch tonics!
We’re taking over the world, one investor at a time. Today we talked to our first potential investor looking to bring Aether Void to life, which is a large step into setting up our kickstarter in a couple of months! We’re also planning to visit Spiel in Essen, Germany. Will we be seeing you there? Are there other conventions we should be visiting as well? Let us know!
In the lands beyond the human lands and, if I’m not mistaken, before the elvish lands is a small region where the so called plain elves live. These elves, as depicted in the rendering, are a bit more human-like than their forest kin. It is a shame that we are soon bound to go back home, because I would love to learn more about these fascinating creatures.
So yeah, Dwarves don’t care for gender, they all look alike and they all like it hairy \0/ On the SciFi end we have decided to base robots on Isaac Asimov’s famous Three Laws of Robotics to keep humans safe.
