Well it’s certainly been awhile since I checked in. Things on my end have been very hectic as of late and that has kept me from working on Into the Fray in earnest (or participating much at cardboard warriors), which is unfortunate since I really want to get this game finished up and out there where people can start playing it, but life has been pulling me in other directs. (I’m not necessarily looking for sympathy, by and far the things that are keeping me busy are positive, but I do miss having a chance to work on my creative projects).
Anyway, work on ITF has begun again; I’ve gotten some of the artwork and card revisions underway. After some glowing initial impressions my play-testers settled down and gave me some much needed constructive criticism that is being implemented (mainly in the mettle system and turn order) and the mock up for that has had a few trials runs so I am working on the re-writes for the rules and such.
So for the handful of people that have been anticipating ITF, it is still on the way and it will be quite a bit better of a game for the wait.
Also, thanks again to everyone who offered up input (especially parduz and kalidecus), it pulled ITF into some directions that I might not have looked into on my own and it is definitely improving the quality of the final product.
I hope to be checking in here with more regularity again (this is certainly one of the best web communities around). See you all in the forums!
Despite the big "BANG" caused by Earth Reborn (we play it everytime, now), the friends that played ItF keep asking about news, so the game "sticked" to them. Pls tell me when there's something new to test and we will force ourselfs to do another play
I've got a few other people that are really interested in trying out the game with the revisions. So I'll get the stuff to you as soon as it is ready to share.
Right now I am focusing on getting the core rulebook up to date to reflect the changes. My neighbor and I ran through a few quick games with the new mettle rules and turn order and between those two things gameplay was smoothed out so much.
Anyway, thanks again for the continued interest. As I get things ready you will be among the first to know
I really liked it. The Mettle rules were a little ambiguous and I am sure that with the revisions the game will make an impact on even more people.
This came to me at a very dark time in my life, and even if it didn't go any further, I tell you that it made more of an impact on me than you will ever know! I wish you all the continued success with this.
Game Designer, BETA Tester, Model Designer, Figure Designer... HEY! It's what I do...
An update, the new rules are ready to go and have gone out to those that had experience with the original rules so things are on track there.
The talents and spells are being revised to match the new rules and cards are being edited as well.
Here is a sample of the new cards... nearly identical, though the damage track has been changes (adding the mettle box and the skull box) and they have been made lighter and larger for easier book keeping. Plus spell casting units also have a track for recording mana.
bravesirkevin: @vermin King, you should still be able to download the stuff you purchased from me again, if that helps. If you have any issues, just drop me a direct message and I'll send through whichever ones you can't download

Vermin King: And none of the Streetpaper Advent models were in there, and only seven of bravesirkevin's figures are in there, and none of my purchased ones... And the old Canon kid's models are still beyond reach

Vermin King: Oo, oo! I just saw the Olli Bizer models loading!

Vermin King: I feel less 'at a complete loss', now. I found a thumb drive of 'Papercraft'. Not sure how old it is, but it does have the Zio models, old Streetpaper, old Canon and HP models, etc. Now it is just an overwhelming loss

wyvern: VK: Now you also have the "joy" of the painfully slow shutdown and reboot every time (at least once a month) that Windows is made "better" by yet more unwanted clutter being downloaded to your system, plus a scatter of useless "desktop.ini" files.

Vermin King: After 3 1/2 hours of updating, I got this xxxxxxxx Win10 computer runnable. I'm really going to miss the ease of Win 7. Amazing all the stuff I did here that is just gone ... except for what I posted

cowboyleland: It looks like you guys are busy, but I would like to point out that the "Ghoul Design Tutorial." which would start to answer bobsomething 's question from Aug 10, is MIA (again)
