Four Color Studios wanted it to be known that they're working on Ghosts of Hefei, a Goalsystem expansion to The Department.



From the announcement:

The Four Color Studios team is very pleased to announce the development of Ghosts of Hefei, the newest Goalsystem book and sequel to The Department: Noir Investigation Skirmish. Ghost of Hefei is a skirmish game set in near-future China. Players control a handful of figures, fighting each other to steal fabricants (humanoid robot workers) from the heart of China's industrial might.

Ghosts of Hefei is fully compatible with The Department, and will allow players to pit criminal gangs from Hefei against agents of the People's Beureau of Fabricants. The game will feature a 28mm miniatures line, but will also include rules for 15mm play.

We'll be launching a Kickstarter drive to fund the development of the rules and miniatures in a week, but we wanted to give you a chance to look at the website and see what the game is all about.

Goalsystem Delves Update #4: Stalking Through the Dank Forest it's the Clawed Stalker

Goalsystem Delves has made it about halfway up to their target goal on Kickstarter. For more impetus to help out, they're showing off the new Clawed Stalker.



From the announcement:

Greetings delvers!

Our third SE miniature for the Kickstarter is one of two "large" size figures: the Clawed Stalker! A clawed stalker is the result of a druid giving completely into his/her atavistic nature. Over time the druid grows, its size only matched by its hatred, unleashing violence on any creature that happens to stumble into its territory. These malicious monsters have been known to track parties of adventurers for days, gleefully picking off those who stray too far from the light or the protection of their fellows.

The clawed stalker stands about 50 mm from base of foot to tip of ear and will surely intimidate any party it encounters. This figure was sculpted by Chip Mann and painted by Scott Pyle. You can get your paws on the clawed stalker figure, as well as four others (two yet to be revealed) by pledging at the $50 or $100 level, and you can get them fully painted as a part of our $300 and $500 dollar pledge packages.
