Gen Con 2019 Newsletter

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
Hey Wyrdos,

Temperatures are rising here in Georgia, which is always a great yearly reminder that the largest gathering of tabletop gamers, Gen Con, is near. If you plan on heading to Indianapolis, Indiana sometime between August 1st and the 4th, make sure to find your way to our booth at the Indiana Convention Center!

In this newsletter, we’ll be covering our plans for The Best Four Days in Gaming™.
With the release of Malifaux Third Edition (M3E) on the horizon, we thought that this would be the best time for us to mix things up. If you’ve visited us at Gen Con in the past, expect a different approach this time around.

This year, our focus is on our amazing community, so we decided to set our booth smack dab in the middle of it. Essentially, what this means is that the majority of our presence will be found in the Event Hall. Don’t worry; you’ll still be able to find us in the Exhibit Hall, as well, just don’t be surprised at the smaller footprint. We're just trying something new. 

In addition to changing up our booths, we’re also a sponsor at Gen Con this time around, so you’ll get to see our logo just about everywhere you look. Make sure to flip through the coupon book, as there will be some fun Wyrd discounts in there!

For additional information in regards to what we’ve got planned this year, in addition to visiting forums and Facebook page, make sure to sign up for Gen Con’s newsletter and their Facebook page, as well.
We’ve seen some truly great cosplays of our characters over the years. So, this year we wanted to give something back to anyone who puts the incredible effort involved in bringing a Wyrd character to life.

If you stop by our booth dressed as a Wyrd character, you’ll receive goodies based on the game that you're representing!
Our Event list is action-packed for this year’s Gen Con. Whether you play The Other Side, Malifaux, or Through the Breach, we’ve got something for you to enjoy. Here is our Event List. You can sign up for these on Gen Con’s site soon.
 

Tournaments:

Throughout the course of Gen Con, we will be hosting various tournaments for both Malifaux: Third Edition and The Other Side. More detailed information on each event will be made available in the future.

It is our amazing group of volunteers that help us out every year that truly makes Gen Con a special experience. Their dedication and love for our games is the reason why we keep coming back, and in order to ensure that this year’s Gen Con is a success, we need your help!

If you are interested in teaching our games, running events, and helping out around the booth, check out our volunteer schedule on our forums. There, you’ll find out more specifics, such as how to sign up!
There’s a good chance that you’ve already seen our releases from now 'til September, but you knew deep down we’d be doing something special for Gen Con, right? It would be such a nightmare if we didn’t.

While we aren’t spoiling anything just yet, expect to see some exclusive and early releases this year for both Malifaux and The Other Side! You’ll just have to make your way to Indiana to ensure that you don’t miss something special!
There’s a lot of planning and not a lot of time between now and the big event, so we’re heading off to make sure this is Wyrd’s best Gen Con showing yet.

We’ll see you there!

Wyrd Retailer Newsletter - Launch Plans!

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
Hello from Wyrd!

As we get closer to hitting the launch button on Malifaux Third Edition, we felt that it was a good time to update retailers with the important details of how (and when) we will be rolling out and updating products for the largest and most comprehensive launch in Wyrd’s history.

In this newsletter, we will be going over those details, and more!
What's New in M3E?

Slumbering Tyrants are awakening and grasping at power as the residents of Malifaux - Human, Neverborn, and Gremlin alike - stand in stubborn defiance against them. With streamlined rules and an intuitive new hiring system, there’s never been a better time to cross through the Breach and into the world of Malifaux!  
  • An optimized engine: The core concepts and gameplay for Malifaux haven’t been replaced, it’s been enhanced. Those little unclear rules have been ironed out for a more straightforward (and less confusing) gameplay experience.
  • A new coat of paint: There will be new art, new cards, and new models. The models that players currently own will still look just as good on the table, but now they’ll have updated cards with text that’s easier to read beside them. 
  • Cutting out the complication: The number of Conditions has been cut down from over 500 to just 11. And that’s just the start; the excess of Actions, Abilities, and Triggers have been streamlined across all of our models so that the focus is on the fun and not on the memorization.
Malifaux Third Edition is an optimized evolution of its previous edition, and we are making efforts in ensuring that the transition is as easy as possible for our retailers and players.
  • In addition to printed rules and cards available for purchase, all cards and rules will be available for free online in seven languages (English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Russian, and Spanish).
  • Players can easily update current model collections with Faction Packs, which consist of all standard retail release cards from a given Faction from the previous edition.
  • A reduced SKU count (from 337 in Second Edition to 186 in Third!) thanks to an optimized hiring system.
The most important detail to a game’s launch is probably when. We’re excited to announce that Malifaux Third Edition will launch June 28th!

Before we launch, there’s a ton of stuff that we need to go over so that the process is straightforward and painless for our store owners. So let’s begin!
First and foremost, let’s talk about what you already have on your shelves and what we’ll be doing to update it to Third Edition. There is no need to liquidate Second Edition boxes to make room for Third Edition. If you’re a store owner, you will be able to work directly with your distributor to get the cards you need to update the boxes you already have.

For example, if you have the M2E Titania Core Box box currently gathering dust on your shelf, you will be able to reach out to your distributor to get the associated M3E card pack for the models in that box, which can be included in the box’s purchase. We’ll even send out a sticker to put on the box to let your consumers know that the product is up to date!

We will be providing the distributors with the resources in order to make this happen. Each distributor will have their own ways of handling this process, so make sure to discuss the transition with your representatives!

Our goal is to make this as straightforward as possible. If you have questions, reach out to us about it by visiting our Contact page.
We understand that some of our retailers have had some issues receiving Malifaux stock in their stores as of late, and for that, we apologize. As with a new edition, our distributing partners have been rightfully hesitant to stock older products. Luckily, this problem is only temporary. For those who are struggling with putting Malifaux minis on your shelves, this issue should be alleviated in June.

Contact your distributor about when and how you can prepare to fill up your stock once again. If you still have issues at launch, contact us directly and we'll look into it ourselves. 
Already have a community of players who are ready to dive into Malifaux Third Edition the moment it launches? Well, we’re working on making the transition easy for them, too.

In addition to updating current stock, we also want to give players the opportunity to update what they already own. Our Faction Packs, which will be available at launch, will come with all of the Stat Cards and Upgrades for each tournament-legal Second Edition model on a per-Faction basis.

If you have a player who only plays Neverborn, for example, all they would need to do is purchase the Neverborn Faction Pack in order to start playing Malifaux Third Edition with their currently owned models.
Within the first few months of Malifaux Third Edition’s launch, we will be releasing seven Faction Books and the M3E Core Rulebook. Each Faction Book will have new stories, lore, and information on each character in a given Faction. The Core Rulebook will include an extensive timeline of the events stretching back from Malifaux First Edition to now so that new players can immediately get up to speed on the game’s overarching story, as well as a detailed rulebook that answers just about any corner-case question that might pop up when playing.

In an effort to not overwhelm store owners with eight books at launch, we will be staggering these releases, starting with the Core Rulebook, followed shortly thereafter with the Faction Books.

If players are hesitant to take the leap into Malifaux Third Edition, let them know that there’s an easy way for them to try before they buy. Our rules and stat cards will be free online (in seven languages!) so players can make smart decisions when diving into a new crew or playstyle, or deciding if the game is for them.
Malifaux Third Edition’s launch isn’t just about updating the products already on store shelves. We’ve got lots of new and exciting models that we’ll be releasing at launch and in the following months.

Our goal with new releases is to fine-tune and reduce the overall SKU count to limit product bloat. For example, in Second Edition, we had over 337 types of products available. By combining boxes of models that work well together in-game, we managed to cut that number down to 186. Your store shelves will thank us.

In addition, we’re making upselling for your employees considerably easier. Malifaux Third Edition’s updated hiring system utilizes Keywords to make building a crew as easy as remembering a name. Even if an employee isn’t familiar with the mechanics of M3E, they will be able to point to a purchase and say what other crew boxes will work well with it just by looking at the front of the box.

“You’re buying the McMourning Crew Box, awesome! It says here on the front that his Keyword is Experimental. Let me show you some other Experimental boxes that you might want to check out.”

Lastly, if you normally stock card sleeves in your store, it might also be worth stocking Tarot-sized card sleeves, as Malifaux Third Edition’s Stat and Upgrade cards have been scaled up to 2.75in x 4.75in. This is a standard Tarot size, and there are already many types of sleeves on the market. After a player picks up a Faction Pack or a new crew box, card sleeves might be the second thing that they’ll look for!
In order to consolidate SKU Counts, we had to move around some models across our boxes. For brand new M3E boxes, this does mean that some new models will be added. In instances where a consumer has already purchased a crew box and doesn’t want to buy it again just for a new model, they don’t need to worry. We’re making an effort to ensure that those concerns are alleviated, too.

For example, the Wong crew box is staying mostly the same from Second Edition to Third. However, we are adding one new model to that box: Alphonse LeBlanc. Players won’t need to buy the new Wong box just to get Alphonse, though.

For the first year, store owners will be able to work directly with their distributors to special order individual models, such as our Gremlin friend Alphonse LeBlanc. 

We'll have more details on this process as we get closer to release. 
Malifaux Third Edition will be launching on June 28th with a new Core Rulebook, Faction Packs, and more. Below you can find all of our releases from June through September.

* An asterisk next to a product SKU indicates that the box contains new sculpts or models.

Here are some cards from the upcoming M3E Fate Deck!
 
We said this was the largest and most comprehensive launch in Wyrd’s history, and we’re just getting started. Malifaux has always been a game that lives, changes, and grows over time. Thanks to our Organized Play format, we’ve created a healthy cycle of new and exciting ways to play without overwhelming the playerbase.

With the Core Rulebook, there are plenty of Strategies and Schemes to keep players coming back for more, but within the first year of Third Edition’s release, we will be releasing Gaining Grounds Season One, which will have updated Strategies and Schemes to help breathe new life into the game.

Later down the line, we will also be releasing a new Faction! While you’ll see their Faction icon scattered throughout Malifaux Third Edition’s initial release, players will have to wait to scoop up the Core Rulebook to find out more. 

We’ve got a lot more in store for Malifaux Third edition’s future, so make sure to check back with us on our website for each big reveal!
Thank you!

Easter 2019 Newsletter

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
Hey Wyrdos,

After having a blast the last few weeks while away at Adepticon and GAMA, we are finally back in the office. And just in time for our annual Easter Sale!

This year's Easter Sale will start Sunday, April 14th and end on April 22nd. This newsletter covers what will be available when the store opens, so keep scrolling down to find out more!
Before we get into the details of the Easter Sale, what better time is there to remind everyone about two new Fate Decks that were released via DriveThruRPG than right now?

Just last week, we made available a Pixel Fate Deck and a Saloon Deck that are both exclusive to DriveThruRPG. For just $12.00 each (plus shipping), you can get your hands on these amazing fan-created decks!
We like to have fun when creating alt models for our annual sales. During last year's Easter Sale, we had Ross Jebson, a Gremlin with a knack for painting happy little pig bellies (don't fret: he's available this year, too). 

This year's no different (okay, it's a little different). The Neverborn's favorite burlap sack, the Stitched Together, are mixing things up a bit. Instead of being filled with meat and bones, the Bear-ly Together alt models are made of cotton, candy, and mayhem.

These alt models are available as one package with three unique sculpts for just $35.00, made out of the same plastic as the vast majority of our Malifaux models. Make sure to get your hands on these adorable stuffed animals, exclusively during this year's Easter Sale*!

*Disclaimer: Bear-ly Togethers are feverishly hungry and their favorite food is glue-dipped fingers. Assemble and paint at your own risk. 
Even beyond our brand new alt models, we're taking this year's Easter Sale one step further. We will be including Malifaux Third Edition cards with each of the associated models purchased so you can start playing with them right away.

That's right; everything you see on the list below that is a Malifaux model will also include the Malifaux Third Edition cards that are needed to play them when M3E launches early this summer.

If you've already got all of the rare and limited models that your shelves can handle, then you won't need to worry about buying a duplicate model for the new cards. All of our M3E cards will be free to download on our website once the game hits store shelves. 
In addition to the Bear-ly Together alt models, here is what you'll find available during this year's Easter Sale:
  • He-Kome
  • Alt Reva
  • Ross Jebsen (an Easter favorite!)
  • Alt Viks (an Easter favorite!)
  • Unicorn Vomit & Pixie Farts
  • Alt Rafkin
  • Vintage Misaki
  • Vintage Rasputina
  • Vintage Som'er
  • Vintage Pandora
  • Vintage Hamelin
  • Vintage Sonnia
  • Alt Bishop
  • Miss Ery - Bad Teddy
  • Cat Princess set
  • Cat Herders set
  • Curiosity Killed the Cat
  • War Wabbit (an Easter classic!)
  • Dark Carnival Coryphee
  • Dark Carnival
  • Crossroads 7
Other special and limited edition products will be available during the Easter Sale, but won't have updated Third Edition cards (just yet).

Orders will not be fulfilled until starting April 17th, so we appreciate everyone's patience! Additionally, when making an order, make sure that everything is correct before hitting the last "Check Out" button; alterations to orders after they have been submitted will not be possible. 
If the art for the Bear-ly Togethers wasn't cute enough, here's what these magnificent little miscreants look like when they're fully painted (and full from feasting).

Painted by Curtis Shoemake
That's it from us. See you during the sale!

Wyrdos,

In just a few days, we'll be outside of Chicago at the world's premiere wargaming convention, Adepticon, and we hope to see you there! Not only do we have a lot of great events planned, but we'll also have a few rare exclusives available in our booth, too. 

In this month's newsletter, we're tackling our new and upcoming releases (including a pre-release or two!), what we're bringing with us to Adepticon, and more.
Are you headed to Adepticon this year? If you're still on the fence about it, check out some of the events that we're hosting at the big con. 

Malifaux 2nd Edition - Enforcer Brawl

The age old question...Who is the best Enforcer? Come test the skills of both yourself and your chosen Enforcer in this battle royal. Each round will match your model against 3 other players in a ring of death. This event will utilize the Official Enforcer Brawl format.

Malifaux 2nd Edition - Henchman Hardcore

Sometimes all you need to do a job is a Henchman and a few minions. Leave the Master behind and see if your Henchman has what it takes.This M2E tournament will consist of 5 rounds at 30 minutes each and will utilize the Official Henchman Hardcore format.

Malifaux 2nd Edition - Send-Off Tournament

This is the end of an era. The best of the best are coming out to fight for the final title: Champion of Malifaux.This is the last Wyrd run M2E tournament.

This is a 3 Round, specialized Gaining Ground 2018, 50SS Event that will use some old favorites for Strategies and Schemes. 

The Other Side - The Battle Begins Tournament

Fight for control of Earth and for the dominance of your Allegiance. This is a three round, One Commander, Fields of Glory tournament. 

The Other Side - Titan Smash

What’s better than a giant robot, a hydra, a mechanical colossus, and an aquatic monstrosity duking it out for glory? Nothing. This event will have players bring their Titans out to bear as they fight for control of the arena.

As a thank you to our fantastic Adepticon community, we decided to do something a little special this year. If you're headed to Adepticon but don't think you'll have time to make it into one of our events, don't worry! We've still got something up our sleeves. This year, we will have some new Malifaux Third Edition products available for pre-sale!

That's right. If you head over to our booth, you might just find yourself with a unique opportunity to get your hands on some brand new Malifaux Third Edition sculpts and cards!

December Newsletter

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
Wyrdos,

The holidays are upon us. Much like the King's Empire has to deal with the aftermath of the Gibbering Hordes climbing onto the shores of Britain, soon many of us will have to figure out what to do with all of the cardboard boxes and torn wrapping paper from this season's gift-giving. Waldo gave each of us at Wyrd a promise of some much-needed peace and quiet, so we're going on a holiday break, but I'm sure that you'll be hearing more from him (and us!) in the new year. 

In this month's newsletter, we're talking about the latest issue of Chronicles, The Other Side's digital rulebook, a few special Malifaux and Through the Breach book bundles, Adepticon, and more. 
We're thrilled to announce that The Other Side's Core Rulebook is now available for digital download over on DriveThruRPG. Learn how to play, find out how the Battle of London began, learn how the Gibbering Hordes communicate with one another, and much more in this lore-filled, gorgeously put together book!

Get your digital copy of The Other Side's digital rulebook today!
Have you ever wondered what might have happened to your favorite characters in the first edition of Malifaux but never had the chance to find all of the books? Are you missing out on what happened to Ramos? Have you wanted to take the plunge into Through the Breach but don't know where to start? Well, I've got some fantastic news for you.

We just launched two big (and super cheap!) bundles for Malifaux books. You can get a hold of all of the Malifaux First Edition digital books for just $5.00! Find out where it all started and see how far we've come by picking up this fantastic book bundle. 

If you're looking for Malifaux Second Edition books, we've got you covered, too. You can scoop up all of the Malifaux Second Edition digital books at the ridiculously low cost of just $10.00! Catch up on what your favorite characters have been doing before Third Edition launches. 

In just a few days, you'll also be able to find a huge collection of Through the Breach books on the Bundle of Holding. Keep an eye out on their website for that incredible deal!

There hasn't been a better time to flesh out your digital collection of Malifaux books than now!
Even though we're headed home for the holidays, we can't help but plan for the next con. We'll be at Adepticon from March 27th through the 31st, and we hope to see you there! Our schedule is available now, so head over to Adepticon's site to find out exactly what we've got planned. 

One brand new event we'll be hosting is the over-the-top free-for-all Operation, Titan Smash. Take your favorite Titan and smash the competition. Up to 10 players can participate in a single game, so bring your Alpha Crawlers, Dreadnoughts, and Goryshches, because it's gonna be a brawl. You can find exactly how Titan Smash will play out by reading the Operation, available now

Don't forget to sign up for the big event at Adepticon, though. Tickets are going fast!

In this month's Chronicles, we get a little festive.

October Newsletter

*|MC:SUBJECT|*
Wyrdos,

With ramping up the release of the Other Side, chugging away at the Malifaux Third Edition beta, and trying to keep Waldo from destroying the design room, we’ve had a busy last few months. But there’s no sign of us (or Waldo) stopping any time soon.

In this month's newsletter, we're covering The Other Side's Kickstarter fulfillment, reopening the M3E beta, releasing the latest issue of Chronicles, checking in on Iron Painter's progress, looking at the latest digital releases for Through the Breach, and more. 
The time has come. Thanks to Adeodatos opening up a few handy portals, The Other Side is reaching doorsteps. It's fantastic to see the social media posts of packages arriving and models already being painted. We're just as excited about getting them on the table as all of you are!

If you didn't get the chance to Kickstart The Other Side, you'll have the chance to get your hands on Allegiance boxes shortly. Retail shipments will begin very soon. In the meantime, make sure to check out the short story that takes place just after the battle of London broke, either on our website or in this month's Chronicles. 
The Malifaux Third Edition beta has been moving along swimmingly. Thanks to our dedicated playtesters who are providing regular battle reports and feedback, we've made tremendous progress. There's still some more work to be done, though, and we want to make sure that your thoughts are heard.

With that, we have re-opened the beta signups. If you didn't have the opportunity to apply last time, now's your chance. Make your way to the application page now! 

In this month's Chronicles, things get a little spooky. 

  • Messing with Malifaux: Take a trip down memory lane and revisit some old favorites in M2E!
  • Smilin's Easier Than Frownin': Two thieves find themselves caught within the crosshairs in their latest heist job. 
  • Tricks N' Treats: Celebrate Halloween with a Waldo pumpkin stencil and a Wyrd coloring page.
  • Community Highlights: Interested in trying out a tournament? Here are some tips and tricks to get you started before the first round begins. 
  • Zepplin Transcripts from Beyond the Breach: A brief glimpse into the King's Empire after the battle of London broke.
  • Old Bones: A Bultungin reawakens, only to find that the bones of those she loved are missing from their graves. 
  • Earthside Dossiers: Take a deep dive into the Cult of the Burning Man's Commanders, Adeodatos and Fenton Brahms.

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

Iron Painter is in full swing. We are in the process of wrapping up the third round as this newsletter is being written, and have seen a ton of excellent pieces in each round. This last round was particularly spectacular. There are still two more rounds to go, and we can't wait to see what you all come up within each category. 

If you'd like to see the submissions thus far, stop by the forums and check out the Iron Painter 2018 Gallery!
Don't be an angry curmudgeon like the guy in the image above. We've got even more good news in store. Three new additions to Through the Breach have been released on DriveThruRPG! You can find The Badlands Invitational, Above the Law, and Northern Sedition in PDF format by clicking their links.

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!
