Happy Sunday!  8)

Female vampire approved! New card art for Void Spell. (Also, more information on our Vampires coming soon.) What do you think so far of the spell icon?



STEAL LIFEFORCE
> Void Spell
> Target unit gets -0/-2 and you gain +0/+2.

(From Ross)
Game Dev for today: Working on character selection tool. Since we'll feature 200+ playable characters - everything from dragons to humans to insects and more - I've got to create a smooth way to select them that's low on memory and high on simplicity.

**Sorry; this was posted in the DevLog yesterday instead of here!

Happy Chinese New Year - 新年快乐 - Year of the Dog!


We love dogs, too, and give you the chance to play as one in Summoners Fate. Here are some of the playable dogs.

New! DevLog 3: Campfire Menu and Campaign Design
"The spirit of this idea is to eliminate the “grind” that’s been heavily associated with mobile games and create something of an innovation. Instead of being continuously peppered with extrinsic reward drops, I want the motivation of our game to be intrinsically based, meaning that you play primarily for the satisfaction of overcoming the challenges rather than to gain rewards."

Ross's DevLog 3: Campfire Menu and Campaign Design is up on our Forums - check it out.



Kickstarter Update
Kickstarter Update #15 went out Friday. Check your Inbox if you were a Kickstarter supporter  ;)

New Card Sketches
This is a Forum-only-first-look - Arcane Insight, Power Steal, and Ice Javelin card icons we are currently working on. Learn more about them:




ARCANE INSIGHT
> Arcane Spell
> Draw 2 cards.

POWER STEAL
> Void Spell
> This spell drains the “attack power” on an enemy unit and adds that power to the caster’s attack power.

ICE JAVELIN
> Void Spell
> Throw a frozen javelin towards adjacent tile. It flies in straight hitting all units until reaching a wall dealing 3 ice damage. Pierces armor.

Sketch Spotlight - Kickstarter Reward
Several backers will be receiving custom characters as part of their Kickstarter rewards. We're pleased to share one of these unique player-driven characters. Chris Sides is a close friend of Ross's and his former colleague at EA. For his in-game character, he wanted something appropriate to his fierce expression rocking the beard. A heavily armored warrior seemed like the right direction, but Chris also wanted something unique and unexpected. “Can I be a plate wearer who uses songs to cast spells? Like be super mean and grungy, but play lovely music?”



And so the “Marauder Bard” concept was born: a ruthless heavily armored warrior wielding a heavy metal inspired guitar sword melee weapon and spiked knuckles. This unique character joins the roster of over 200 playable game characters and will be a collectible card available to all players.

What do you think? Also, we're trying to come up with a cool name for this character. One idea we had was "Marauder Metalist", given the awesome guitar sword weapon. Any other ideas?

New Characters: Mummies!

As you know, we at D20Studios are fan of playable undead characters (see evidence here, here, and here). Next in that category comes our visitors from ancient Africa...specifically the incensed Mummy King and Queen from Egypt! Take a look at them on the battlefield here:


If I were the Barbarian & Archer, I might turn and run from these creatures...

Here they are up-close and personal:



What do you think? We've long been interested in ancient Egyptian culture and are excited to bring these Summoners Fate characters to life!...so to speak  ::)

Hi, everyone!

Ross had his scheduled jaw surgery today, and everything went very well! He's resting now, he's pretty swollen, totally numb, and can't talk much yet. We hope to get him a good night rested and start fresh in the morning. He does have his phone, so if you want send him well wishes here or on Discord (discord.gg/6rZkzAx), I'm sure he'd appreciate that  ;D

Which is Best?
??? Hmm...Which Celestial Shield icon art do you like best?



A little about this card to help you decide:
> Celestial Spell
> Surprise: Target ally prevents all damage from the next damage-causing action that targets them.

1 or 2? Vote here


Ross's Surgery - Update
He made it through night 1 - hooray! It was definitely a rough night filled with bleeding, total mouth/jaw numbness, and pain. Needless to say, Ross does have his phone - which is his main way of communicating until he can talk. Visit him on Discord! I'm sure he'd appreciate it.

Good evening!

Each day, Ross is heading in the right direction with his healing from his double jaw surgery. He does have his phone throughout the day, and checks social media, Discord, and this Forum, and thanks you for all the kind messages! And, of course, even after a pretty tough surgery, he's still working :). He can't sit at his computer and program, but he's writing down ideas all day and making lots of awesome Summoners Fate plans.

On the art end, we have some fun characters in the pipeline including a Horse Demon, a Valkyrie, and our Empress and Emperor - and more! We love hearing if you have any new ideas, definitely post here if there's a character or spell idea you'd love to see in the game.

Progress on Marauder Bard
Hello, and happy Friday!  8)

Here is an update on the player-designed Marauder Bard. As a reminder, this was designed by player Chris Sides as part of his Kickstarter rewards. To see the original sketch, click here. Check out that sweet guitar sword. What do you think so far?



Who would like to play as the Marauder Bard in Summoners Fate? ::raises hand::

Axes? Check.
Magical staffs? Check.
Heavy metal guitar/spiked knuckles/sword hybrids? Yup.

Check out the in-development weapons for our 200+ characters to wield. How do you like that Dragon Eye staff? This will be used by our upcoming Empress.
