Creating Book 1: Pisces (Relaxed Edition)

We were supposed to start working on Book 2: Taurus in January of 2016, right after all the character illustrations have been submitted by our resident concept artist, Sao Menguito.

This is how important your feedback is for us. How else can we truly deliver and be true to our mission, if we don’t listen to our players? (more…)
