Development Update: Cards and Pledge Manager Reminder
over 1 year ago – Sun, Oct 08, 2017 at 01:08:58 AM

Hi everyone!

Thank you for offering us such time and space to improve! We have been fine-tuning each and every detail of the game, seriously, we couldn't wait to show you.

Item Cards

Item cards come with illustrations of items from four categories: Weapons, Armors, Accessories and the Consumables. They all come in variations and we are still increasing them! The followings are some of them.


Class Cards and Invasion Cards

If you still remember, now we have six classes in total, including those from the stretch goal and addon. Each is color-coded to be easier to distinguish. Each offers a unique game strategy for you to overcome invasions!


We've also been re-working on the character and miniature art for production. Next update will be covering this area.

The following Longyan illustrations are two of the work-in-progress pieces.

We will keep working on all parts of the game until perfection. We enjoy every single moment of the journey because of your presence!

Thank you for your time for filling up your pledge details and settling shipping fees in the last few weeks! For those who haven't done so, we are sending a reminder to you!

The Pledge Manager
over 1 year ago – Sat, Sep 09, 2017 at 10:34:31 PM

Hi everyone!

We are very pleased to announce that the pledge manager from Backerkit is live now! Each backer will be receiving an email from Backerkit in the coming 48 hours.

You can get more addons through the pledge manager, such as the Shaman Class cards, and even extra copies of the core game! 

Shaman are one with nature. They are said to be able to communicate with the spirits of the world like no others and enlist their aids to create natural phenomenon with ease. Beasts and plants who align with nature will heed their call, at times they will offer aid and nourishment to their allies with wind and rain, and they will strike their foes with the fury of lightning and thunder!
