Yesterday, our crowdfunding campaign achieved the 900% mark, and, with that, you unlocked the possibility to modify the artwork of a Hero or Heroine.

Notice that the original artwork will remain. You will get a special, Kickstarter Exclusive, second set of Heropad and Attack Cards with a limited edition alternate artwork of the Hero of your choice.


(This is the back of a Heropad. I took an example outside of the Core Box Heroes not to influence votes. You can only choose among Core Box Heroes because this is a Stretch Goal, and all unlocked stretch goals are added to Core Box rewards, so we cannot include Expansion or Full Pledge Exclusive Heroes).


Here are the Core Box Heroes for you to choose:

I'd like to see another side of Catharina, more contemplative, less glowy-eyed.

I would like to see the Niary the Hunter because I am partial to rangers.

It would also be good to see the arrow on the other side of the bow because that is where it normally is for archers.

Rokaru looks a little scrawny for a samurai. All that armour makes them look huge. I also think the beard and stache are too European looking.

I chose Sedrik because I love werewolves and you don’t often get to see one as a playable character. I’d like to see him wearing some sort of tribal regalia, signifying that he is in control of his beastial form and acting of his own accord- as apposed to pure rage.

Can Thalia gain a second form of Druid (Bestial) Offensive as a second form? It would be nice to have her as Druid Healer or Damage.

I voted for Thalia, the Druid.

I want to play this with my wife, so a less titillating version would be good.

I would like to see one of the women with less bust size and alternative pose.
But please, don't make Thalia more "decent". She is already very modest. In fact, if she were to wear less, she could pass as a dryad, which would be pretty cool.

Zafara the Fallen Angel, because there is so much potential with this character that the current art resource doesn't tap into. It's just kinda "meh" at the moment.

I voted Thalia because she looks out of place compared to the rest of the art. All of the other art depict fierce warriors prepared to battle. Thalia looks to just be enjoying a leisurely stroll through nature. I think the art on her card is beautiful, but it doesn't match thematically with all the others.

Maybe it's the taste of your designer. But he's a bit of Russ Meyer Fan I guess.

I would prefer seeing a woman not having those very large breasts which always seem to be streched out to the viewer.

Something more petite
or something more fighter
or something else
... but a great bit less Playbunny would be so nice to look at.


But for sure I'll stay in to get your very, very interesting game.

Hoping that there's some money left from the campaign so that those poor big breasted women can buy some clothing modest

I have to choose:

either improve one of the images and the only one that needs improvement in my opinion is: Rokaru


or have another great image of my most favorite one: Thalia

Since I think it is hard to top the current image of Thalia, I rather go for a better/ cooler image of Rokaru (the current one is rather boring...)

Niary the Hunter, since my wife uses a Ranger for DND and could use some good art in addition to the mini!

I wanted to also throw in the idea of Sedrik’s human form. I can’t help but wonder who he is or what he’s capable of underneath the beast.

THIS. So much this.
I voted for the Druid for this reason.

Thalia does not seem to match the other artwork.
Very non-aggresive art, and you know breasts deserve armor too.

^100% agree. Because as a woman myself when I go adventuring I like to wear next to nothing, really helps protect my vulnerable skin and organs. I guess only men get that kind of logical protection. I picked to modify Thalia because seriously WHO WOULD WEAR THAT INTO BATTLE!?!? Even as a druid! You want more women to take gaming seriously give us characters that are legitimate. A real hero/adventurer would prioritize protection of vital organs and functional gear over looking like a sultry sexpot. Perhaps they should look like they could actually handle themselves in a fight. I'm not saying they can't be attractive, but I personally think that a strong woman who can handle herself in battle and is smart about her gear is "sexier" and more logical. I will say that at least some of the women have ok gear, still focuses on their boobs (clearly for fanservice reasons only).

I don’t think Thalia is wearing armour there because it’s a scene where she’s communing with nature, enjoying being a druid. Out of shot are a horde of satyrs and nymphs dancing, engaged in a fertility rite for a warm spring and gentle summer.

Which is why I voted for her: happy to have Thalia in her role as representative of spring and desire and goddess, but I’d also like a version of Thalia that would logically be found in the arena. Ideally showing the darker side of Druidic religion - human sacrifice, bones, and blood.

Current pictures are all good overall: please don’t waste any effort on changing them when that effort could go onto new content.

Rokaru in a fighting stance with a two-handed grip would look better in my opinion.
