Kickstarter​ - Empire, Age of Discovery, part deux: The discovery of yet more Stretch Goals.

I've just spent about a week or so designing a 2nd new board, the WORLD board (that is supposed to be printed on the back of the first board, as far as I understand), which includes almost everything, but really not. The scale is also dubious, but then again, try to draw a map at night with the help of a locked compass and a rusty sextant, I dare you. Observable patrons will notice the lack of a European continent, because being the starting point wasn't all that interesting, it's the destination that matters; and Australia because they were at war with Sauron at the time.

I also worked on adding a new nation and player board, the Ottoman Empire, to welcome all the players named Otto. In addition, 4 new Trade Goods, such as Spice, Tea, Silk and Ivory that you can all powder and mix together to create a wonderfully earthy Chai tea of sort. Plus, 10 new Capital Buildings, including Garrisons, this time to welcome all the players named Garrison and especially the host of 'A Prairie Home Companion' (very limited and terrible NPR joke), but also Cardinal Richelieu, because you can always trust the French or the church to do the right things in colonial times! And there are eight more, like European War, the preferred pastime of the European Elite: "When Alexander saw the breadth of his domain, he wept for there were no more worlds to conquer"...aside from your direct neighbors, so the heck with treaties and To War! Gold wills it!

Shameful Marketing time!

To celebrate the last day of the Patron Saint of Truthiness, TeeFury is selling our beloved always-right(eous) Shepherd and his baaashful followers on one fine 16 x 11 piece of paper for you to worship or hang in the bathroom.

Teefury assured me that it was parody and I shouldn't worry about intense and hurtful retribution from the Shepherd's army of lawyers. Otherwise, I'll just deny everything.

Does not come with the kind lady holding the poster (see her right hand? the ring means she's engaged or possibly married already...oh well).

Full disclosure: I make $1 out of the sale.
C.
TeeFury has a new Pop Culture, Geeky, or Nerdy T shirt every 24 hours for only $11. These Cheap Daily Deal T Shirts are gone before you know it!

I worked on this game in 2011 called Dragon Rampage. This was the background for the board (with bleed). Retrospectively, I'd change the layout of the tiles (not visible here), but I still like this background a lot. I wouldn't change that part, esp. the Dwarf fighting with a "mug shield", and the thief completely oblivious to the danger (or not caring at all). I thought that was quite representative of the caricature of characters in that genre. But, every time humor's concern, there's always that guy from the Simpsons Comic Book shop who has to point out that apparently, fighting with a mug is "inaccurate" or "impractical". Yes, these people do exist, especially on BGG's forums. I find their sense of humour to be somewhat lacking in...well, existance. But hey, they're "technically" right :P

I'm still sick, and I am SURE it's evolved into that now!
I'm also pretty certain that I got it on my weekly trip to the Hospital, last Thursday. These places are cesspools of germs. Any congregation of people is, really, but hospital seems to attract the worst, most tenacious little buggers, and patients like me, with broken auto-immune systems, are like a giant flashing sign that say "Free room and board, come in, come all!"
I'll get better by Wednesday and Bang! Thursday, I have to go back in there. This time, I'm wearing one of those paper masks and I'll wash my hands with that pshiit! anti-bacterial thing they have on the wall, very 30 mn. Every 15mn. All the time. I'll drink it! I'll undress and slather myself in it. Then I'll smear it everywhere I go. I'm sure the nurses won't mind, I'll act normal.

I thought I'd show you the new boards for that KS Empire: Age of Discovery game.

On the left, the 1st board (based on the original, but optimized for better gameplay), and on the right, the new 2nd board game, to be printed on the back. Both are 21 x 24 (including bleed, so slightly smaller when cut).

More dusty digital skitchums. I like to see evolution in other artists' work. So I made one too, although it's already at the ink stage. You can see the first step, added details, attempt at line shadowing (didn't work in this case), and final shadowing in pure blacks and boom: Squirrels!

I am finally able to show this one again, officially this time. It's Magic Potions for the new D&D player manual.

Please know that you can get a print in the following link for the next 30 days, when the site will be revamped completely (for the better):

http://www.shop.imaginedinterprises.com/Magic-Potions-by-Cyril-van-der-Haegen-cvdh-magic-potions.htm

Now, excerpt from the official AD&D blog:

Art Director, Kate Irwin explains:

“The art on page 215 has a funny story. It was supposed to be just a few potions on an alchemist’s shelf but the artist (Cyril Van Der Haegen) made this magical full page image with EVERYTHING included. The description was simple:

"Alchemist’s shelf with line-up of iconic magical potions. We’d like each potion to look distinct. Here’s a list of how they are described in the DMG. Pick some that seem fun.”

The description went on to list 12 potions he could choose from, each with a short description. Obviously Cyril added to those 12 potions with tons of items, giving us one of those images that you can pour over and still find something new each time you open to the page.

This was originally a half page illustration, but once we saw the amount of work he had put into it and knew we would want to show it as a full page.

Finally, there were no sketches or concept art for this piece. Cyril turned it in basically completed.”
