Since I haven't seen anyone else post this yet, I thought I'd throw it out there to feed the kind of rampant speculation for which we gamer-types are renowned.

On the last page of the AToE Rule Book, at the end of the credits, it says the following:

Quote:
A Touch of Evil (TM), The Supernatural Game, Copyright 2004-2008 Flying Frog Productions, LLC.
All Rights Reserved.
First Edition 2008.
Shot on location in Washington State.
Manufactured in China.
Something Wicked (TM) this way comes.


Something Wicked (TM)?

A sly announcement of an AToE expansion, a la Growing Hunger? A subtle hint at their third Game Title? Or a red herring to waylay the obsessed?

Let the speculation commence!

I believe the general concensus is the third game will involve the Martians who were mentioned at the end of the LNoE rulebook so I'm going with your first guess, a ToE expansion. How about having the Jersey Devil or it's close relative as a new villian?

Does a Monster seem necessary? That of the Frankenstein nature?

I'd guess the first ToE expansion too. Bigfoot maybe? Some sort of human but evil creature - an evil Warlock or some such?

I spoke with one of the booth folks for FF at GenCon and they said the "Something Wicked" reference has to do with an expansion for AToE. He did let it slip that this expansion includes an additional board and should be released within the next year or so. This makes sense because if you look to the east of the Olde Woods, there appears to be a road out of town.

There is also an additional suppliment that will become available soon that will include a new CD-soundtrack for the game. It seems FF is following the same marketing plan as they did for LNoE.

Of course, this person I talked to may have been full of it.

And by the way, I did ask about the Martians and all they said was if I liked LNoE and AToE, I'd love the Martian one as well. Sorry, but that was all I could pry out of them.

At the end of the Growing Hunger rules it says "The Invasion Begins 2009". I asked if I'd be able to pick up the "martians" game at next years Mr Hill said they were going to try hard to make that deadline.
My Purchases:
Gencon 2007 LNoE
Gencon 2008 GH,AToE, Stock up & Madness
Gencon 2009 ......
These guys got my number! I don't mind paying full price to support an excellent litte game company like FF.

New beasties for AToE? I vote for all of the above!

Yes, my best guess would be a Witch, plus maybe Frankenstein's Monster (though probably called something else).

They could call it something else. Recall the Mel Brooks "Young Frankenstein" movie. Wasn't it "Frank-en-schteeeen" in it? If ATOE does this and calls it something else, I vote for calling it "Frankenschteeeen's Monster". laugh

But since they are going to lengths to keep things more "generic", I am sure they would call it "monsterous construct" or something. Not actually "frankenstein".


I also vote that I will expect a witch or sorcerer of some kind as well. I think Bigfoot would be cool or perhaps the Mothman! Another cool one here in Wisconsin is the "Beast of Bray Road" but it is not as well known outside of cheesehead-ville... Some sort of swamp monster might be cool also.

I remember reading LNoE was essentially complete for at least two years before it saw print. I wonder if AToE has the same story with the long term plan for it already well decide and any suggestions already moot.
Still it's fun to speculate so don't let this post stop any one.

How about a headless horse man?

No, It hasn't already been done. I mean a man riding on a headless horse.

Now THAT would be "Something Wicked"..... "Wicked Awesome!", as my old college roommate from Boston would say.

As a non-owner but somebody who's been reading up on all the reviews and previews, it seems like a witch, golem/construct, demon, or perhaps a pirate ghost would fit the theme.

The monster never had a name.

Man, what kind of geeks are you?


Which is why I suggested Monster...see above
