April Newsletter


It’s time again to give you all the monthly dose of all things Wyrd! After getting back from Adepticon and meeting a bunch of you fine folks, we’ve been super busy ramping up a few projects on our end for the upcoming con season. If you didn’t have the chance to catch us at Adepticon, we hope to see you at another con sometime in the near future.

This month’s newsletter covers War of the Spirits (the Darkness Comes Rattling expansion), April’s Chronicles, the Through the Breach campaign, the Creature Feature painting contest, and a game designer position that just opened up!
We’re thrilled to announce and release the expansion to Darkness Comes Rattling, called War of the Spirits! Not only are we immediately releasing the game, but you can download the cards, rulebook, and characters for free on our website.

You can also purchase a print-on-demand version of the cards on DriveThruRPG very soon! 

Darkness Comes Rattling: War of the Spirits adds a new quest system that all players participate in, new Legendary items, a new item type called Blessings that help all players, and a new endgame system where all the players directly challenge Darkness itself!
The latest edition of Wyrd Chronicles is available now. Wyrd Chronicles is a free e-zine that can be downloaded at DriveThruRPG.

Here’s what you can find in the latest issue:
  • Starting Malifaux on a Budget – Resurrectionists: Looking to build an inexpensive Resurrectionist crew but don’t know where to start? We’ve got you covered.
  • Darkness Comes Rattling - War of the Spirits: Showing off the print-on-demand expansion to the challenging cooperative game, Darkness Comes Rattling!
  • Singing Song: Three mischievous Tanuki are tasked with obtaining a sample of the renowned River Monk drink of choice, Song.
  • Building a Gaming Board - Part Two: Add the final touches to the winter-themed game board we began in February’s issue.
  • Master Class: Looking to introduce a Master into your Through the Breach campaign? Here are a few ways to do so without blowing everything up.
  • Honey Smugglin’: The simple life of a bayou smuggler becomes more a little more complicated during her latest journey into the swamp.
  • Rattling Winds: A Malifaux story encounter that takes place in another dark world.
The Through the Breach global campaign, the Obsidian Gate, moves on to Act II. If you haven’t gotten your hands on the free to play campaign, don’t worry! Sign-ups for the event are still open until April 29th, so you’ve got some time to join in on the fun.

The Obsidian Gate consists of 4 gameplay sessions and uses pregenerated characters. New sessions are released every 3 weeks, but Fatemasters have more time to get in their game reports. Games reported can shape the future of Malifaux, particularly in helping decide which character gets turned into an Adjunct model for The Other Side!

We’re excited to hear how things unfold in your game sessions!
The Creature Feature painting contest is currently ongoing. Make sure to get in your definitely-not-humanoid entries in soon. There’s only four days left!

To find out more information about the contest, visit the forums here.
Is it your dream to work with us on games like Malifaux and The Other Side? Do you have a passion for flipping cards and building crews? Do you dream of Red Jokers? If you answered yes to these questions, you might just be the person we’re looking for!

Wyrd is currently hiring a Miniatures Designer. To apply, send over your resume here.
We’re playing a bit of a game of catch-up with our upcoming releases, and we apologize for things slowing down. Now that we’ve to shake away the issues we had with customs, we have created a more accurate gameplan for the forthcoming releases.
