Steamforged Games Previews Furnace for The Blacksmith’s Guild

The Blacksmith’s Guild is looking to reshape the world of Guild Ball like a smith reshapes metal. Their Master/Apprentice dynamic gives you a team with no mascot and no official captain (you pick who is in charge at the start of the game). So there’s a lot of anticipation on what these players are going to look like. In this case, we get a look at Furnace, a new master that, as you would expect, is going to heat things up out on the pitch.

From the post:

Here at Steamforged it’s been fantastic watching the forum & social media reactions to our articles on the first of the Blacksmiths Guild to be revealed, Anvil & Sledge, as well as our article on Blacksmith Guild team construction. If you missed those articles you can find them HERE. Today though, we think it’s time to start showing you some more of the Blacksmiths Guild Ball team. When we revealed Anvil & Sledge we did so with redacted cards to tease you about what abilities they could have. While it was incredible fun for us watching you try to guess what abilities could be behind those shaded boxes, we decided we wouldn’t be quite so mean this time. Today you get to see the full player card for the Master Blacksmith Furnace.

    Man, whatever happened to Steamforge releasing a new system this year. Their work on Guild Ball has been impressive. Would have been cool to see them translate that good work to another system.

      Honestly I’d rather see a company concentrate on their flagship product.
      If you play any Spartan games, you know what I mean.

        I mean but they already have the flagship down pretty solid right? I mean they’re entering their 3rd season now? I mean releasing more teams is cool and all, but the scope of the game is rather limited to begin with.

        • BDub

          Sure, but I think its exactly the limited scope and the small team being focused on a single product that makes it a solid game.

          • ZeeLobby

            it probably helps. They just said they were going to create a new game, so I’m anxious. I have little interest in Guild Ball, though I’ve heard it’s great. I’d love to see an actual skirmish/wargame set in the same setting.

          • BDub

            I’d like to see the same thing, but not at the expense of an already great game. I hope they manage thier resources and talent better than others who have tried to diversify theit product line in the past.

            Yeah, it’s just an opinion many in our local group share. Kinda getting bored of GB. Some have moved on to BB. Would love to see the world get fleshed out

      I’m guessing that Dark Souls doesn’t count as a new system, right?
