The Adventure Game Cover

你好, folks! As we’re finally getting closer to the release of the Far West Adventure Game Core Rulebook, we figured that it was time to show you some of the stuff that has only been shown to our Kickstarter Backers so far. Today, we’re giving you your first look at the front and back cover of the game! The backers offered their opinions on a number of different options, and these are the final designs that resulted.

August Art Preview

Getting ready for our annual trip to the biggest tabletop games show in the US, GenCon. As discussed over in our forum, we’ll be having an informal meet-and-greet on Saturday evening, 7:00pm in the lobby of the Omni Severin, 40 West Jackson Place. If you’re planning on dropping by, head over to the forum and sound off! In the meantime, I thought that I’d give you a look at some of the latest art that will be appearing in the

More Backer Portraits

More Backer Portraits

Our look at some of the denizens of the Far West continues, with more of the backer portraits that will be appearing in the FAR WEST Adventure Game core rulebook. As with last week’s entry, the five illustrations presented here are from the 60-odd portraits completed by Rick Hershey before his departure from the project (the remaining 20-something are being done by Gareth-Michael Skarka, and we’ll present some of those in future postings).

The five illustrations

As we finish up the final arrangements to get the Limited Edition of the FAR WEST Adventure Game out to the printer, I realize that we’ve been terribly remiss about posting updates here on the site. We’ve been present on the official forums, but haven’t posted material to the actual site for far too long. That changes as of today — we’ll be making a concerted effort to feature more content here. To kick things off, I realized that we’d

FAR WEST Cartography Notes

FAR WEST Cartography Notes

On November 14th 2011, after several months of preparation and hard work, the first Far West map was completed and approved. It was a long, arduous process, but the final results made it all worthwhile. My name is Andrew Law, and I have the honor of being the cartographer for Far West. If you want to know a little more about me, go check the Bios page. I can’t fully express my excitement at being involved with this project. For

A Look At The Latest Art…

Sorry about the lack of more regular updates: As you might imagine, we’ve got a full load of development work going on, prepping for the launch of the Adventure Game and the fiction line this December. Our crowdfunding Kickstarter program has another week to go, so if you haven’t signed up yet, you’ve still got time. Once the Kickstarter draws to a close, you’ll see much more activity on this site. In the meantime, we thought you might like to
