UPDATE: Here's the Kickstarter!

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tomvasel/the-dice-tower...

We're hard at work getting out annual Kickstarter together, set to launch on January 3rd.

Each day, until then, I'm going to post a picture (perhaps two) of something in the Kickstarter. I'm trying not to be too obvious, but perhaps you'll figure it out.

Here's one to get you started.

Day 4:



Day 5:



Day 6:



Day 7:


Day 8:


Day 9:

I don't know what it's for, but it sure looks like a Zee-Sam ettin to me. Great art!

A Sam & Zee Ettin? Truly nature's cruelest mistake!

while idea is awesome, please improve art a bit - it's a bit hard to recognize Sam and left shoulder (on Sam's side) just looks weird.

Whoa! That's a nightmare inducing piece of artwork.

Re: Dice Tower Kickstarter is Coming - 13 days and counting. Pictures within!

I guess I'm in the minority, in that I'm not a fan of seeing likenesses of real people in the artwork of my games. In a couple of instances, it kept me from buying an item. On the flip side, for some, I'm sure it's the reason they bought them.

It was kind of funny when a few first started doing it as subtle Easter eggs, but as it's gotten more blatant, the charm has faded for me. Still, if you have to have an ettin with Zee and Sam, this version is good, but I'd never look at it and think I'm being attacked by a monster -- I'd only see Zee and Sam -- and that jars me out of the game experience. Though if the game is meant to be funny, I suppose it could work.

I assume the 2nd image is some type of badger? The stripes suggest skunk, but the head and tail suggest badger.

Honey Badger. Possibly a Dire Honey Badger?

Here's what i think.

The first (Sam And Zee) is a promo for Cyclades.

The second (The Badger) is a promo for Mage Wars.

The third (The Dice Tower Inn) seems to be for Imperial Settlers.

Thats because Sam is not a two-headed monster.

Weird? That's how all two-headed monsters I know look like.

I kind of thought the badger promo might be for Evolution, but I'm not familiar with Mage Wars and its art.

I'm crossing my fingers that Arcadia Quest: Tomrick will be available again as a promo. I didn't have AQ when it was previously offered, and now that I do, I'd love one!
