Dominion of the Gods from Comfy Chair Games has just around 2 days left on Kickstarter with still a ways to go to get to their funding level. To help things along, they're showing off another green they've got in as well as upping some of the funding level deals.



From the update:

We have just received this new green of Jokul Frosti for the Norse box set of the new game, Dominion of the gods. Jokul Frosti is the Norse embodiment of winter itself. One part old man winter, one part Jack Frost, mixed with some serious killing power! Jokul's mere presence brings Frost across the land. His touch can blacken a man's skin with frostbite as he glides effortlessly over water and land alike. The men of the North know it is wise to respect the winter, now during these trying times winter fights beside the men of the North.

Friday, November 2 9:00 PM EST will be the end of the kickstarter campaign for dominion of the gods. This is your last chance to get in early on this exciting new game and also receive an extra large size model in each box set (the Celtic and Lovecraft boxes contain a free medium based model due to Army build.)

On the Lamb Games introduces Lyra Cosine and updates Endless Fantasy Tactics dice appearance

On the Lamb Games has updated their Endless Fantasy Tactics dice over on Kickstarter to look more distinct. They're also introducing Lyra Cosine to the Endless family.



From the update:

Impatient with the structured process of the Magickal Akademy, Journeywizard Lyra Cosine dropped out of the school in a manner that been described by the faculty as “abjectly unprofessional”. Since leaving the school, Lyra has taken to self-teaching, most often by practicing spells on highwaymen and bandit dens. This behavior has earned her the gratitude of many outlying villages throughout Wugin, but the ire of others.

Accepting large payments for the defense of small villages, Lyra has sometimes done more damage than the bandits during her ‘protection’ of a village. With her fees pre-paid by the community, Lyra skips town before the smoke has even settled.

Lyra will be added to all Thief, Dragoon, and Cleric level pledges when we hit $60k.
