Lone Shark Games are teaming up with Penny Arcade creators Gabe and Tycho to bring you Thornwatch, a new board game/rpg/graphic novel all rolled into one. The game is meant to be adaptable to playing styles and times. If you want a shorter experience, do a one-shot for an hour or so. Want something that'll fill the evening with entertainment? Go into full-on adventure mode and play until the sun comes back up again. The game and its first expansion will be available July 31st, but if you want to get it as soon as possible, you can put your name on the pre-order list now.
The world-spanning forest, the Eyrewood, is full of villages scattered among the trees. In those trees lives villagers. Unfortunately for those villagers, the Eyrewood isn't always a nice, peaceful place to live. Thankfully, there's the Thornwatch. They're always ready to come help out. How do they always make sure to end up in the right place at the right time? Villagers tie knots to birch trees that will magically summon the Thornwatch. And that's where you come in, you're a member of the Thornwatch in... well... Thornwatch, the new graphic novel adventure (as they're calling it) up on Kickstarter.
