Jamie Toon on Designing How to Serve Man

How to Serve Man

Hi there, my name is Jamie Toon, and I’m from St. Louis City. I currently work as a Web Admin for The Miniature Market and I have been tattooing in a professional setting for 8 years. I’m a huge Geek, and have been for as long as I remember, finding my love for Cartoons, Films, Toys, Comics, Video Games and Board Games at a very early age. My favorite thing to do while designing games is put on a horror movie in the background. Oh yeah, and I prefer cake more than pie.

Aether Magic

Hello, folks at home … I’m Matt Worden, and I’m a normal, everyday, geeky husband and father of two that lives in the lake-dotted suburbs west of Minneapolis, MN, and works as a business systems analyst by day. I like to be outdoors (when it’s not winter) doing things like camping, canoeing, fishing, and hiking. I enjoy to play or watch almost any type of game or sport, a wide range of music, good food, witty banter, and fine beer. I grew up in Wisconsin and I’m still a Green Bay Packers fan even though I now live in Vikingsland.

Cannibal Square

Hey nerds, I’m Alisha Volkman. I hail from the Twin Cities of Minnesota, where it is so cold your meeples will freeze, but I call it home. I’m a small time tabletop designer with a lot of ideas up my sleeves and I love being able to bring a game from idea, to indie. Aside from making games of all types, I’m also an artist. If I’m not drawing, I’m designing.

MidKnight Heroes next character reveal Oda, The Rokheim Battle Master

Time for our last reveal in our Core Set "Oda The Rokheim Battle Master"

So who is Oda?

The Rokehim, they are a very proud and strong race. They value three things above all else, their god, fighting, and Ale! Oda is no different from any Rokheim on that front, but after that he is very different. Oda is a Battle Master, one whose whole life is devoted to the art of battle. Battle Masters are needed and relied on as the Rokheim spend most of their life underground living in mountains. The planet that they live on is covered in ice most of their year and only for a very few months is it not covered. Living in mountain is not easy as most everything else seeks the comfort of the mountain as well when winter comes. It’s the Battle Master’s job to protect the church and its people no matter the cost. Battle Masters will fight inside; outside they don’t care as long as they can protect the church and people. Oda is a legend among the Battle Master’s. He has spent many and seasons protecting the church with his wife Hanna by his side.

Oda will be sculpted by our main Sculptor Robby Crawforth! He will be 28mm and cast in white metal. (Pic is not final pose)
