Did I Mention Hardcopies in my Last Post?

Why yes, yes I did.

Marchland is now available through Amazon.com and Amazon Europe. Just click on the link to the right and order yours today!

The print version of Marchland includes errata fixes, new content and rules clarifications, and some really cool new art by one of our new artists, David Kao.

Of course we will continue to update the PDF and we will get the iBook version updated too.

Dragonflight is Almost Here

This weekend, one of the oldest gaming conventions in the northwest US is taking place in Bellevue Washington. And Hearthstone Games will be there.

Dragonflight is all about games and that's why we love it. No media glitz and no crazy lines–just gaming all day and all night (for those of you who have more stamina than me).

We will have a table in the dealers room and we happen to have a few hardcopies of Marchland. We'll be running a show special on the book, and will have an extra goody for those who buy a copy.

So, if you're in the Seattle area and are looking for a way to beat the (rare) heat, head to the Bellevue Hilton.

Hope to see you there.

Errata Update

An astute reader noticed that a couple of the sample Fae have a Scourge called Voracious Appetite, but there is no description in the body text. This is what happens when you waffle at the last minute. I had actually removed Voracious Appetite entirely because I didn't like the way I had originally written it. Unfortunately, it was left behind in the sample Boon/Scourge sidebars.

I had also planned to reintroduce it with the upcoming supplement, but why wait?

Voracious Appetite: This Fae just can't get enough to eat. He must consume at least one pound of food every four waking hours. Starting after the second missed meal, he must make a Vigor roll or gain one Fatigue level. Fatigue gained is cumulative and can only be removed by making up the missed meal(s).

So, there you have it. This Scourge is a tweak to the standard Hunger rules in the Savage Worlds rulebook. For anything not included in the description above, just use those rules.

Speaking of supplements…

There will be an update coming soon about that. There have been several (all good) changes here at Hearthstone, so I wanted to cover it all in one announcement.

And now for some free advice:

Don’t stand too close to a Fae Blooded with Bestial Rage and Voracious Appetite. You just might start to look like lunch.

Cheers,

Mark

Marchland themed movies

Poking around the Apple movie trailers site, I found a new film out of Norway that may be of interest to Marchland fans. It's called Thale. The TRAILER  is probably NSFW, so I'm not embedding it.

Also from Scandanavia is Troll Hunter (available on Netflix)

And finally, one for the whole family:

Sneaky Peek

Meet the Prince of Ostara.  Just a quick peek from the Otherworlds Sourcebook (still a working title btw).
