Damned Clock! Due to its slowness in carrying my possessions to the station we almost missed the night train to New London. Small note to self; need to flog it when we return. But first, time to find myself a pleasant carriage, and perhaps find me some rich customers.
Although the reasoning behind it still eludes me, the inhabitants of this place have built enormous walls around their city. It almost seems like they are afraid of something, although it is highly unlikely that any kind of creature could scale walls even half as high as these. What then? What drove them to build such gigantic walls?
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!
