Empire of the Dead from West Wind Productions has made it through another stretch goal on Kickstarter. They've passed 40k GBP and are headed ever higher.



From the update:

When Gretel became separated from her brother Hansel in the dark foreboding forest, she came across an oddly symmetrical pool surrounded by a grove of ancient Oak trees. The mist of weariness descended upon her and she fell into a deep sleep. She dreamt of the Moon..............

Red is a blessed aspect of the Moon Goddess, one of the three guardians of nature known as the Sisters of the Moon. By day she remains Gretel but by night she succumbs to the song of blood and takes the form of a half-wolf.


Empire of the Dead will be getting their Requiem book, as the Kickstarter was funded pretty quickly. They're basically unlocking something a day. Here's a picture of the latest, the Vampire Bride.



From the update:

Empire of the Dead-Requiem Kickstarter has been funded, actually it was funded within 2 hours of launch so a big thank you to everyone who has supported us so far.

Since yesterday we have had a lot of feedback from people regarding our KS. There have been a lot of positive comments and we thank you very much!

It seems that by the time people in the USA and Canada got onto their computers and heard about our KS, all the Early Bird Specials had gone! We didn't take into account the time zone difference, thinking also that the Early Bird's would last a long time, at least a couple of days, and everyone would have an equal chance to Pledge, but this was not the case.

Therefore, to be fair to people in the USA and Canada, we have added another 100 of each Early Bird Specials to the Pledge Levels. These are going to run from tonight until they are all gone. We will not be adding any more Early Birds, absolutely not, after this.


West Wind Productions has launched their Kickstarter for their Empire of the Dead expansion, Requiem. They've already made their funding goal, so it's stretch goals for 39 more days.



From the campaign:

’Requiem’’ is the second part of our tabletop skirmish game Empire of the Dead.

If we manage to reach our goals we will be able to expand on the original game by adding over 70 new charismatic models. We also want to start a new range of ingenious Steampunk Machines and Victorian Carriages to populate the streets of our darkly Gothic Victorian Empire.
