The Wordsman

Polygon did in fact have to change their article about Apocrypha, and I am pleased, plus technically (as I am being told on Twitter) it should be “lupursine.”  I was trying to come up with something that sucked really bad, though, and being profoundly incorrect is certainly one way to suck.

Apocrypha is by Lone Shark Games, who works out of our office downstairs.  And they know everybody, so Patrick Rothfuss has several pieces of very, very short - like, micro short - fiction in there.  I have some writing in one of the expansions myself, and I agreed to do it for free because how they use these writing fragments is rad.  This is a game by the people who made the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game where, among other things, you attach short stories to your character like equipment.  We have it all up on our store with some exclusive promo cards if you aren’t already waiting on your copy from their Kickstarter.

Actually… speaking of Pat, he stopped by last night’s Acquisitions Incorporated: The “C” Team game.  It won’t surprise you to learn that his beard was lustrous as FUCK:

Our Merchandise Manager Lidija wanted to make sure I got these Merch banners out there for PAX West next week, and I have found that any time I take her advice to heart I benefit.  Of course, just as in times past, any of these images can be clicked to embiggen it for greater legibility and a premium user experience. 

And of course, if you are a Dev or long to Dev yourself, recall that we do have a PAX exclusively for you.
