August 2018 Newsletter

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
Wyrdos,

We're back from another great Gen Con, and thanks to our incredible volunteers, it might have been our best year yet. If you didn't make it to the show, don't worry - we've got you covered. 

In this month's newsletter, we're going over what made this year's Gen Con great, Iron Painter (our annual painting competition), the latest Chronicles issue, and... (drumroll, please) our closed beta! Keep scrolling down to find out more.
We had a lot of great stuff to talk about at this year's Gen Con. We showed off more of The Other Side's models (the Gorysche has some serious board presence), what The Other Side's boxes look like, and of course, gave a glimpse of Malifaux Third Edition. 

Concerns were alleviated, worries were absolved, and the hype skyrocketed. Players got an exclusive look at some new sculpts for both Marcus' and Rasputina's crews, such as the Order Initiates, Wendigo, and Snowstorm. The fantastic updated stat cards were also on the table, gathering collective "ooooh's" and "aaahhh's" from curious passersby.

But in Gen Con tradition, as soon as we got back from the big event, we started planning for the next one. There's just too much awesome stuff that we're working on behind closed doors to talk about in one con! 
Here at Wyrd, we love our painting competitions. We started the year off with Creature Feature, then cleaned our palette for Total Testosterone, and then we just put the last touches with Femme Fatale. But the year's not over, and neither are we.

Our big annual competition, the Iron Painter, is now open for sign-ups, and Round One will begin August 20th. It's time to wash your brushes, pick up some flock, and prep your paint stations, because this year is going to be just as grueling as the last. We can't wait to see how creative our amazing community is with a paint brush.
 

For this month's issue of Chronicles, we go back to see what our friends Breachside have been up to since we last visited. 

  • Starting Malifaux on a Budget – Gremlins: Getting ready for a bayou hoedown? The best advice for throwing together your Gremlin crew can be found right here!
  • Soulstones in the Rough: Shake the dust off of your less used models and get ready to bring some extra diversity to your next game.
  • Augments & Add-ons – The Widow Weaver: Introduce a new predator who stalks the web of Fate to your Through the Breach campaign.
  • The Sundial: When you mess with time, you might find that Time messes back.
  • Community Highlights - Malifaux Around the World: Learn a little more about Malifaux communities from different places around the world.
  • It’s a Dirty Job…: A Death Marshal’s job gets tougher as he has to explore the Sewers underneath Malifaux.

You can find the latest issue of Chronicles for the low cost of FREE on DriveThruRPG!

Since we announced Malifaux Third Edition, there's been a ton of speculation of what's being changed, updated, removed, added, and so on. We haven't talked about a whole lot of specifics just yet, but we're very close to revealing what's behind the curtain.

Sign-ups for the closed beta are available now, but we are only accepting requests up through the 17th of August. If you want to have a part in testing your favorite models, make sure to head your way there and fill out the form. We'll be launching the closed beta on August 20th, so you'd better sign up soon!

Gen Con 2018 Newsletter

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
Wyrdos,

Gen Con is near! We've been pretty busy gearing up for the best four days in gaming (August 2nd - 5th) and can't wait to show you what we've got in store this year for the big event. If you're making your way to Indianapolis this year, be sure to stop by our booth (Booth #1129)!

In this special edition newsletter, we're covering all things Gen Con. You can find details on our Tyrant Tournament, our upcoming releases, and all of the awesome promotions we'll have at the Indiana Convention Center below. 
We're jumping off the top rope and bringing down an elbow drop of awesome onto this year's Tyrant Tournament at Gen Con. That's right; if you're one of the lucky qualifying entrants, you've got a chance to win yourself a Malifaux 2018 Champion belt. While it might not keep your pants up, this beauty will definitely look great draped on your shoulder or hanging triumphantly above your minis collection. 

But there's only one way to claim this prize: you gotta win. Make sure to bring your A-game so that you can rightfully claim that you're the best (of who showed up)! 
We've got a bunch of promotions that we're offering this year at Gen Con. You can find a list of our promos below:
  • Get a FREE He-kome model when you spend $100 or more (available in person and during online Gen Con sales).
  • Get a raffle ticket for a chance to win a Mansion when you purchase any 2 Edge of the Quarantine Zone Wyrdscape terrain boxes. The Mansion will be delivered to your provided address, at release (available in person and during online Gen Con sales - which will be automatically registered).
  • Play a demo of The Other Side for a chance to win a gift box from one of the Allegiances, delivered to you at release. 
 
  • Get a raffle ticket for each $50 you spend for a chance to win one of the many goodies we'll have to offer at our raffle at the end of Gen Con!
Every year, we like to offer something special at Gen Con, and this year's no different. While you might have already seen our preview of this year's NightMARE Gremlin box, we've still got a lot more to get excited about. Above, you can catch a glimpse of one of our promotional offers exclusive to Gen Con: a He-kome, a male Shikome!

There is one little thing we're doing differently this year. Like the color of the Burning Man's flames, our schedule is shifting a bit. The next Malifaux book won't be coming to Indianapolis. But don't worry - the sky's not falling. We've got some big plans for our friends across the Breach coming in the new year, and you'll be able to hear about those plans soon. 

Below you can find a list of the pre-releases we'll have at Gen Con.

June 2018 Newsletter

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
Wyrdos,

Like the Burning Man lingering over London, con season is upon us! We're still winding down from the great time we had at Origins Game Fair 2018, and we couldn't have done it without our volunteers. Thanks to everyone who helped out or stopped by our booth. Now it's time for us to prepare for Gen Con at the beginning of August. We hope to see you there!

In this month's newsletter, we're covering June's Chronicles issue, The Other Side's release dates, our awesome Wyrdscapes, Through the Breach's latest adventures, and our upcoming releases. 
 
The Burning Man beckons out to all that hear its call as Abyssinia rallies their troops for the looming invasion. The Gibbering Hordes are spilling out onto the streets while the King's Empire prepares to defend their homes. The Other Side is near.

If you're a backer, expect to receive your order of The Other Side this August! Don't worry; if you didn't get the chance to back the game, you'll be able to get your hands on it shortly thereafter when The Other Side hits retail in October. 
We've teased them on our forums. We've given glimpses of them on social media. If you were at Origins, you might have even scooped up a pre-release box or two. But come Gen Con, our Wyrdscapes will be available to everyone! 

These fantastic terrain pieces are fully detailed inside and out. Build your own version of the Quarantine Zone with the Haunted Spires, Pathways, the Abandoned Store, Makeshift Defenses, and the Solarium. Make sure your gaming table looks and feels epic with Wyrdscapes.
We've got a lot of Through the Breach releases coming your way. This month, we released The Show Must Go On, a Penny Dreadful One-Shot, where the Fated must help Colette find one of her rising stars.

Our next Penny Dreadful, Northern Sedition, is just around the corner; the Fated will have to deal with the aftermath of a massacre in the much-anticipated sequel to Northern Aggression.

Soon, you'll also be able to play as a Magewright, Propagandist, and more in Above the Law, a full expansion for Through the Breach that focuses on the Guild. 

Break on through to The Other Side. We just released our latest issue of Chronicles. This month, we decided to take a detailed look at our upcoming miniatures game. If you're not familiar with The Other Side yet, here's a great way to introduce yourself to the game. 

  • Comparing Malifaux & The Other Side: An in-depth look at the differences and similarities in our two miniatures games!
  • Storming Into the Breach – Starting the Other Side: Interested in The Other Side but don’t know which Allegiance to pick or what you want in your Company? Let’s give you a hand.
  • Little Star: A mother and daughter down on their luck as a mysterious light appears over London.
  • Painted Model Gallery: A close-up look of some of The Other Side’s fully painted models.
  • The Other Side – Battle Report: The Cult of the Burning Man and the King’s Empire duke it out in a play-by-play breakdown of The Other Side.
  • Lost at Sea – The Other Side Scenario:  An Abyssinian destroyer gets bombarded by an unknown enemy. Can you survive the Hordes?

You can find the latest issue of Chronicles for the low cost of FREE on DriveThruRPG!

Here's what you'll be able to find on store shelves soon:

May Newsletter

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
Wyrdos,

We're back with another monthly newsletter to let you all know the latest happenings this side of the Breach. The annual con season is ramping up and Wyrd will be coming in full force at Origins in just a few short weeks. The awesome Asian Ruins Wyrdscape bases that you can see in the image above is just a sample of what we'll have to offer. We're hoping to see you there!

This month’s newsletter covers the Through the Breach campaign wrapping up, the upcoming Total Testosterone painting competition, the Other Side's Backerkit, the Darkness Comes Rattling expansion (War of the Spirits), and some of our upcoming releases.
As a thank you to our community, we released the Darkness Comes Rattling expansion, War of the Spirits, for free last month. We're super proud of how the quest system, new characters, and improved endgame all turned out and hope you all enjoy playing it as much as we enjoyed making it. 

You can already download the rulebook, cards, and characters on our website. If you're interested in the print-on-demand version, then you'll be happy to know that the wait is over! You can now order the War of the Spirits cards (which includes the new quest system, events, legendary items, and more!) here at DriveThruRPG for only $15.00! 

Let us know if you and your fellow Tribesmen were able to finally take down Darkness once and for all on our forums!
We're so close to putting those Fireteams down onto the table and duking it out Earthside. That's right, we're wrapping up The Other Side, which means that there's only a little bit of time left to make those last minute orders on the Backerkit

If you still haven't decided on which Allegiance (or Allegiances) you want to represent, head over to the Backerkit to finalize your order. That means that if you didn't get a chance to back the Other Side on Kickstarter, this is your last opportunity before it goes to retail!
The Through the Breach global campaign event, the Obsidian Gate, is nearing its end. A lot has happened since players started the first act, but we won't go into spoiler territory in case your group hasn't taken the plunge just yet. There's still some time!

Fatemasters: if you want to make sure that your game sessions count, make sure to get in your reports to us by June 11th. With your help, we'll see how the global campaign impacts the Other Side very soon!
We at Wyrd love to see what our community is capable of with a paintbrush. The submissions to Creature Feature gave us the creeps (in a good way). With every one of our competitions over the years, you have all continued to impress us more and more. This year is no exception.

Starting June 4th (and ending June 24th), our painting competition, Total Testosterone, will be returning in the manliest of fashion. It's time to twirl those mustaches and flex those pecks once again because only the model with the most testosterone will walk out as the victor. 

Keep an eye out on the forums for more information!
We've got a lot coming your way in the next few months. Here's what will be hitting shelves soon:

April Newsletter

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
Wyrdos,

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.

You can find a list what’s to come in the next few months:
