Another amazing collaboration between the incredible artists Baconstrap and Ted Ottosson! They've done a wonderful job and we couldn't be more proud to have this as the centerpiece for After the Empire. I love all the details! It's a true work of art! The graphic design overlay is also coming along nicely! Only 2 months away from our kickstarter and things are really taking shape!
Here's player board #4/4 by the wonderful Baconstrap and Ted Ottosson! We're very excited to have these pieces finished for our new prototype printing (from our very own local Print and Play...thanks Chase!) just in time for Gamestorm this weekend! We'll be bringing these new player boards PLUS a first look at our game board with some new graphic design elements. Join us and be among the first to play on these beautiful boards!

Here's the Barracks card from the Building deck. The city's off-duty troops can be seen whiling away their off-duty hours playing some bones! This marks the completion of the 4 basic buildings in the game, along with the Chapel, Blacksmith, and Granary!
It's another great piece from Ted. Here's the Apothecary from the Building deck. I really love the shelves full of beakers and bottles, the fire, the cauldron, the old apothecary and his medieval glasses. But, most of all, I love the lighting effects that really make this piece.
Here's the Ledgerman from the Refugee Deck. I really love the ambiance of this one, and all the candles! Plus, check out his awesome outfit!
Here is the Sculptor's Hut from the Building Deck. I really love the little dog. If you look really close, you can tell he's actually sculpting the statue shown on the Idol card, which is eventually placed in the plaza shown on the Foreman card.
Here's his first card from the Building deck, the Thieves' Guild! I love all the shady characters and intriguing dealings! Here's a preview of the card's flavor text Star Wars shout out: "A hideout for scum and villainy. Even the worst characters can bring about good if you know how to properly motivate them."
To prove our game doesn't take itself TOO seriously, we have a couple things here and there that are a little more whimsical. The Quarry Dude from the Refugee Deck is one such. While the word "Quarryman" or "Stone Cutter" would've been perhaps a better choice, we just couldn't let our "Quarry Dude" go. So, we came up with this interpretation, based on the old usage of dude as a synonym of dandy. We hope you like it!
Here he shows General Starke with her personal retinue from the Refugee Deck.
Okay, so check out the hunky Farmhand from the Refugee Deck! His name is Jacob and yes, he's single, but it's complicated!
Check out the Plowman just tilling away at those happy fields!
Check out the Carpenter from the Refugee Deck!
Check out the Mason and his crew!
Check out Ted Ottosson's rendition of the Captain of the Guard!
