Official Word: The Long View

In response to growing speculation (some of it here on the forums) about where BattleLore is heading, Eric Hautemont posted a great overview on the official site of the game at its six month anniversary and a look at the future.

Check out the post for the full details, but briefly, here are some of the main points:

  • - the rest of the year DoW will concentrate on core supplements for BattleLore, leaving further game world background development until more units and core systems have been released
  • - new units to come are the Goblin Skirmisher and Dwarven Battalion sets, followed by a 100 Years War set, another Goblins Specialist set and, a bit further down the road, a larger yet-to-be-announced set
  • - hopefully, at the end of the year, we’ll see the greatly-desired Heroes of BattleLore supplement (“the last key building block to the BattleLore game system”); letting you gain experience in battle and use magical items

All, in all, the future looks very bright for BattleLore—that is, if we can all be patient enough to let Eric and his team work without constant interruption!
