Monsterkin - Initial Game Testing

I've had this idea for a game for a while, but I have to admit. I had originally started designing this as a video game before moving to a board game system as I am right now. This is obviously not the best way to go about designing a game, and I've had to make extensive cuts and changes to the original concept to better suit the dynamics of a board game system, but it's beginning to resemble something workable.

Patreon Launch

So I've thought about this for a while. But I've decided to finally set up a Patreon account. Don't worry if you guys like my blog posts and art, I'm not going to be hiding anything I haven't already been publishing behind a paywall.

Anyway, than…
