I am continuing to search for great 3d artists to work on Siege of Verdan for me. I have some royalty free stuff that I have been using but if the game is successful I will have to get some “exclusive stuff”.
I wanted reveal a few of the “First Expansion” Unique Rulers that will be a part of the game. I hope you find them as interesting as I do.
The Jester Patr: A ruler who’s main focus is to control the world by eliminating those that oppose him. This ruler gives bonuses to Spies and Assassins.
Abcus Cyn: One of my favorite. This member of the banking guild believes that Verdan can be united with a strong economic system, trade, and power in unexpected places. She gives combat bonuses to Merchants, and recourse bonuses to those with banks in play.
Admiral Dale: Those that control the sea control the world. The Admiral is the only ruler to date that can take to the sea on his own (no ship required). Admiral Dale also gives bonuses to Ships for movement (you will be amazed how far that extra MV gets you per turn).
I have many more that I am not ready to reveal yet, but I am pretty far ahead on expansion cards. Designing cards has by far been my favorite part of this experience, balancing power and avoiding power creep weighs heavily on what cards I develop.
I would like to leave you with a picture of the Display tower after paint and mounting to its base. It was a fist time experience and I would have done things differently knowing what I know now, but its almost done and I I think it looks like a “ruined tower” I hope it gets some attention at The dice tower convention con.
