Screenshot Sunday
Even when his team was defeated, the Arch Mage can still defeat his opponents with some summoned soldiers...

Sometimes the trees uproot and join your fight...



Working on the Campfire Menu for campaigns so the characters sitting around your campfire reflect the characters you the player selected. Here, we have the Barbarian, the Druid, and the Treant. Learn more about the menu here.

Before & After Card Icons
Check out the before and after of a couple of our card icons. We love how they turned out. With Transfer Consciousness, we made the decision to move the heads to horizontal in order to eliminate excess white space in the background. What do you think? Learn more about them below.



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

TRANSFER CONSCIOUSNESS
> Arcane Spell
> Target visible ally becomes your Summoner.

Surgery Update
Some of you have asked how Ross is doing. He's 1 week out from his double jaw surgery, and every day is getting better, less swollen, and more like himself! He even sat and did a little work at the computer today. We had our 1 week checkup with the oral surgeon, and everything is looking great  8)

Ice & Fire
They bring destruction to the Summoners Fate battlefield, whether in the form of wintry pain or liquid hot death...
Meet the Ice and Magma Giants, and check out their sweet axes.



Here they are upclose:





What do you think? We'll have a whole band of giants for Summoners Fate, including a Giant Skeleton, Trolls, and more, for those players who enjoy beating foes down with the larger creatures.

Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head...
Rainy day where you are today? It is cloudy and just started raining here in Utah - perfect weather for battling on the Summoners Fate grasslands...


Characters pictured starting top left: Ironclad Soldier, Rugged Mage, Thief, Withered Villager, Withered Dog, and Liche King

Surgery Update
We are about 9 days out from Ross's double jaw surgery, and he's getting back to game design again - wahoo!



He's working on designing a really fun new reverse-empathic character. We'll reveal more about it soon.  ;)

Today's Gamedev
We're working on creating some new spells along with card mechanics. We are also finishing up some new characters, including our much anticipated Emperor and Empress. Here's a Forum-only peak at Emperor Cosme's sketch:



Have a great Friday!  8)

Defender of the plants, protector of flora, enchantress of nature...



Meet Botanical Sage, our newest Summoner! We are still working out her exact powers, but she will definitely have exciting greenery abilities such as summoning brambles. She will join our roster of available Summoners, characters who can use your cards.

What do you think?

Monday Motivation
Need some Monday motivation? We've got a card for that.



This card is Vigilant, and we love how it turned out. The "model" for it is our Barbarian. A little about this card:

VIGILANT
> Celestial Spell
> Target unit gains unlimited counter attacks.

Marauder Metalist!  8)
This video shows some animations for the completed Marauder Metalist a character designed by one of our Kickstarter supporters, Chris Sides. This character will be able to provide support buffs to allies. Plus, the guitar riff is so potent that smaller creatures are outright destroyed upon hearing it.
(See the development of this character here and here.)

Female Characters
Snapshot of some of our female playable characters in Summoners Fate. Can you spot a few new ones?



Which would you like to play as?

We will have 200+ characters available to play as in Summoners Fate. These are divided between humans, humanoids, animals, creatures, summons, and undead. We've made a special effort to strive for diversity and equality so all gamers can feel included and find the band of heroes that best reflects the gamer's goals!  ;D

DevLog4 is Up
New! Ross's DevLog 4 is up: Surprise and Trap Mechanics. Check it out!

Here is a video from the article where the AI-controlled Summoner casts a surprise Ice Trap, then they use their knockback ability to push my gladiator into it, taking advantage of the trap's effect during their turn. Note: the "surprise" card art icon is placeholder.
