Hello friends! Torchbearer has been nominated for two Golden Geek Awards, including Best RPG. If you’re a BGG member, go vote!
In which we provide you with too much information about the forthcoming Player’s Deck!
We ordered 2,000 decks from our printer. They’ll be here sometime in April. However, you all were so excited by our unboxing video, we decided to have 100 decks express shipped from the printer so we could get them to you sooner!
We will be offering a preorder of 100 decks on Thursday, January 23 at 4 PM eastern time. This is NOT your only chance to get the decks. We made more decks! This is your chance to get them first.
Hope you like the video! See you tomorrow!
It turns out that when Mouse Guard’s David Petersen got started drawing the amazing Torchbearer monsters he provided for The Petersen Bestiary, he couldn’t stop! David has provided us with five more monsters to delight GMs and terrify players.
Come discover the terrors that lurk within The Petersen Bestiary Volume 2!
Greetings friends and Happy Thanksgiving!
Here in the U.S. Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and we’ve been ruminating about how thankful we are for your support of Torchbearer. We also believe that showing is better than telling, so we’ve put together a surprise to express our thanks: The Petersen Bestiary!
Our good friend David Petersen, of Mouse Guard fame, gave us five mind-blowing monster drawings and we’ve added full Torchbearer stats. Your players will weep in terror when these monsters hit the table!
Who’s ready for an owlbear hug?
Torchbearer is now available to everyone. Enjoy!
We’ll have more news soon. We’re just getting started!
Torchbearer is shipping from the factory to our specially designated cave right now. If you haven’t done so already, please visit our Kickstarter page and fill out your survey so we can send you your books!
Be sure to check in with our updates on Kickstarter. Thanks to your generous support, we’ve upgraded everyone’s book.
And since I think it’s not clear in the project description, I wanted to point out the digital content available for Torchbearer. All backers pledging to a tier will receive PDFs of the following: the rulebook, the character sheet, the player reference sheet, the GM reference sheet, the Thief bonus class and the bonus scenario The Dread Crypt of Skogenby.
D Miller has been killing it with character art on the Burning Wheel forums. Check out these amazing and perfect Torchbearer character sketches!
More coming soon!
Check out this excellent ranger from a Torchbearer, Emily Delisle out in Vancouver. Quaewan is a calm, loner type who knows the spells Celestial Music and Arcane Semblance. Bad ass!
