Serene Fist four is in the final stages of playtesting. It's a system I want to use for the other genres so I want to make sure it works. I'm really enjoying it so far. The figures are drawn and just need colouring and layout. Serene Fist five will be a Wuxia heroes and villains set.
Lots more zombies in there besides furry zombies. There will be lots of regular zombies as well as a few toxic varieties. I finalized the game cards this weekend and will be working on the rulebook editing this week. Still hoping to sneak another set out sometime as well.
I may need to take people up on the proofreading... Playtesting finished tonight and a few changes are being made. There are going to be a TON of minis in this set. Just a horde of zombies of all different kinds. Really fun to playtest this. I hope people enjoy playing it. Ok.. back to work.
This set is HUGE... I mean.. huge. Here is my final artwork that needs colouring this weekend. Rules are out for proofreading... oh my .. I feel bad that it's not out before Halloween (which was my deadline), but I think it will be a better set with the extra time.
I'm looking forward to it as well. The game has been really fun to playtest. I'm releasing the game as a free beta release with this set as I am sure there are still tweaks that it will need to be better. Eventually the game will be a free release and future sets will be expansions that i will release as pay sets.
I have finished colouring the set. There is a mind-boggling amount of miniature goodness in this set. Tonight I will start laying them out as minis. The tedious work begins. The Mini game is still out for editing and will probably require the week until it is finished in any way shape or form.

Looking Good !
Can hardly wait. Watching Walking Dead has made me want to bring my All Things Zombie campaign back from the dead... This set looks like zombies invaded a comic convention. Pure awesome inspiration for a scenario.
Those are awesome. It's unfortunate that it couldn't be completed by Halloween, but I definitely see these as a Christmas present.
Have you considered where you are going with this line next? I'd still like to go back to the Victorian theme at some point. Victorian Edo or Formosa. Docks, warehouses, pirates in cramped squalid conditions. I'd still like to see someone do some Sampans and Junks. Not necessarily for battles, but then again, why not ...
My texturing sucks, but I've recently been playing with sort of an alternate universe idea. Trying to take oriental buildings like torii, temples, bridges, etc and skinning them out in a Sci Fi theme. I see it in my head, but my skills don't get me there. Sort of a Space Ninjas and Samurais deal.
Enough rambling. Whatever you come up with will be great.
bravesirkevin: Lots of strange creative choices on that guy. Roman crest, renaissance era halberd, armour that looks more appropriate for motorcross than combat. I had reasons at the time, but they've gone foggy now. Still, I think he's got a lot of character.

cowboyleland: Cool fig. Thanks Kevin! I'm not sure why or how he wears his paldrons over his cape, but as long as he is happy...

bravesirkevin: There's also a complex build and a simple build. At the very least there's likely to be a few different colour schemes, but probably not alternative deco.

bravesirkevin: As it stands, the fountain has multiple options for the floor so that you can put it in any of our dungeons and the meadow, and also has a couple generic circular bases so that you can just put it anywhere.

wyvern: Also liking the look of that forthcoming fantasy fountain bravesirkevin (I'm not usually a Facebooker - Facebookworm?). Will it have a range of skin options (for both liquid and stonework)?

wyvern: Link to the Kev's Lounge Facebook page to collect your free Dwarf Pitfighter (not riding a goat, sadly...), if you're not a regular Facebooker.

bravesirkevin: PS. There's a new Kev's Lounge free mini on the Papercraft Dungeon facebook page.

bravesirkevin: I've gotten to a point where I do all my drawing with my wacom tablet and only use pencils when I need to fill in the 7 Wonders score sheet

yifferman: take easy , whit practice youcan understand teh wacom

lightning: aaaaarrrrgggghhhhh! drawing with the wacom is driving me crazy! i know it will be worth it in the end but until i get there the difference to what i am able to draw with pen and paper is sooo frustrating ... sry for the vent :-)

Cardstock Dane: Interesting. I don't own Illustrator, but I have access to it at uni. I'll check it out. Thanks!

mproteau: For sure, if you have Adobe software, use it. I was shooting for using free software in the guides I am putting together.

bravesirkevin: You can actually create pre-sets with all the right settings, and that's a huge help

lightning: just need to make sure to export PDF of higher version ( i think 1.7 and above) as lower versions do not support the layered PDF. Found this out the hard way trying to export to PDF high print quality setup from Illustrator which used PDF 1.5 :-)

bravesirkevin: If you have those, then creating a layered PDF is as simple as saving your layered file as a PDF and telling it to preserve the layer structure.

bravesirkevin: Acrobat is not designed for authoring PDFs as it is not a design program. The main purpose of that software is really for tinkering with and optimising PDFs. In the Adobe suite of applications, you'd create your PDFs with Illustrator or InDesign.

mproteau: I don't own any Adobe tools that can create PDFs, so I don't know. Sorry.
