YE COUNTDOWN BEGINNETH!
Phew, I just compiled the new beta player list from all the emails that have been gathering in my gmail folder. There is a LOT of eager Dredlings!
Rather than have everyone fill in a questionnaire, I am going to post one up on the forum and you can choose to fill it in as a forum post in the introductions- that way we can all get to know each other a bit- and you may find people you connect to that you can play Skulldred with. Ahh, community.
You will receive welcome mails shortly giving you the password to the new playtest forum- as well as a pleasant little surprise. I will announce the mailout on this here blog- so if you do not get a login, something is amiss- flick me an email!
NEW BETA NOTES
The new free beta is a cut down version of the book release. It is formatted to A5 paper (pocket size). Though it is rather sexy looking, this is only the word file and does not represent the final layout, photography or illustration of the book. Rest assured. It will be even sexier.
The free beta is missing some modules, which will be privately emailed to NDA members.
As promised, with the release of the new beta, I will be reinstating the Skulldred Warband painting competition that got halted when I fell ill. The warband must have between 5 members and 12 members, and must feature either the Skulldred 'S' skull logo or 'Ace of Dread' logo. You are invited to make custom character cards for your warband, and a backstory. Prizes are Darkling Games miniatures- awarded for creativity, painting chops, conversion skillz, profile cards and general craziness- as judged by me. You have two weeks from beta release to finish your entry. May the maddest, paintiest Dredling win stuff! I m looking for diverse and clever use of minis from ranges from any era, any manufacturer. 'Tis the Skulldred way.
The new counters are language free with just an icon. Yep- I am listening!
