+John Wick's stretch goal is so close! 
Check out his blog post explaining Kebros, the House of Ruby. 
 
Epyllion Kickstarter: John Wick Stretch Goal
Man, lots of Epyllion coolness today. This time, +John Wick gives us a preview of his Encyclopedia Draconica entry on House Kebros, the house that "betrayed" Dragonia and joined the Darkness.

But there's always more to the story...

A bit of my Inspiration: 
If it wasn't obvious, one of my big inspirations for Epyllion the RPG was Spyro the Dragon! 

I remember being SO excited when Cynder was a playable character. I saved up to buy the one video game I knew of where I could play a girl dragon! She had been the villain in the previous game and I loved playing as a kick-butt lady dragon with a dark past.

So it should be no surprise that I just had to make an RPG where other people could play that dragon. ;)

Thank you, +Zach Battleman! Blaze (I think was it's name) and yeah, that was one of the ones I was trying to remember! 

As for all of the new rules and info, we will be launching our kickstarter in a few days and you will be able to download the new playbooks and move sheets from there. 

I'll be posting here and all over my personal Google+ page as soon as we launch so look here for those posts SOON. :)

This is one of my favorite features that kickstarter has made possible. :)
 
The Epyllion Kickstarter will feature an NPC Dragon Deck of cards that will help DMs (Dragonmasters) introduce new and unique characters to their game. :) 

The Dragon Deck will feature dragon names, ages, houses, moons, occupations, demeanors, and desires. The characters are written by +Marissa Kelly, card layout by +Sarah Richardson, dragon portraits are drawn by +Jason Poole, and +Juan Ochoa did the coloring!

Get ready for #Epyllion because the Kickstarter will be here very soon!
