Crafty Games Update: Spellbound and Mistborn [PICS]

This week we're marking several milestones with the Mistborn RPG. The core rules are almost fully edited now and will shortly be packaged up with the Treatise Metallurgic for Brandon's review. Ben McSweeney turned in a final version of his amazing cover over the weekend and we just approved several new interiors this morning (including a couple that sent chills up our spines). Our line developer, Will Hindmarch, is turning more and more of the world portion of the book over to us every day, and it's looking great.

Very shortly it'll be time to take that final plunge into Spellbound, which will actually arrive on shelves first (licensed products take much longer in post-production, mainly due to review time, though Mistborn also requires additional production time due to a new format that isn't seen in the gaming market very often, if at all).

You can expect tons of updates on both products over the coming days and weeks, but in the meantime we wanted to give you a little treat to start your week off right. Head on over to our Facebook page for a hi-res preview of the Spellbound cover - also by the unstoppable Ben McSweeney - along with a step-by-step presentation of his work-in progress files. Enjoy!

Mistborn RPG: Want to Get Involved? Researchers Needed

We've hit a whole lot of milestones with the Mistborn RPG project recently and you'll see plenty of exciting new updates for the project soon, but in the meantime we wanted to reintroduce you to someone. He's been a part of the Crafty Games family for some time and friends will recognize his work. His name is Ben McSweeney and he's the gentleman responsible for that amazing Fantasy Craft cover, as well as every class illustration for the game to date and a whole slew of other incredible pieces.

Check out more of Ben's work at his Deviant Art page.

Well, we're pleased to announce that except for a few key reprints from the collection of Isaac Stewart (he who developed the maps and Allomantic symbols for the Mistborn series), Ben's illustrating the entire Mistborn RPG, including the cover and all the interiors. Yay! :)

Now, what's this about getting involved, you ask? Well, Ben's always been a rather personable bloke, and he periodically reaches out to fans of various properties he works on to get details right and generally raise the level of his scrawl from merely godlike to something approaching O_o (which is shorthand for "SWEETZOMBIEJESUSTHATSBEAUTIFULGETMESOMENAAAUUUOMGBBQ!!!). He's at it again, this time with questions for the Mistborn aficionados in the audience. To get in on the action, head over and take a look at the latest in his thread at Brandon's forum...

(That links directly to his most recent post(s). The thread actually goes back a couple years before that.)

More soon. Until then, Stay Crafty!
