Hello folks, Tom Savage here. I just wanted to give some information about my radio silence and upcoming projects.
Anathema is in production but is taking a slight more relaxed approach to issue #3. Not to say I am taking a vacation by any means. But, I am very excited to direct most of my work focus to my new fantasy based action role playing war game Grimoire Quest! (Pronounced Grim-war ).
The game revolves around an epic fantasy war between 3-6 Wizards (players) all in a battle to recover the 10 missing pages of the Master Grimoire, the world's most powerful spell book. There are two ways to win-Collect all the pages of the Grimoire, or kill all the other players and stand unchallenged. It is turned based attack game with a simple narrative value. Each round can change by the random events read in the narrative. There are many clever attacks and defenses, (you can even resurrect defeated Wizards as your zombie slave to attack remaining players! FUN! )
The base deck at this time consist of 300 cards, all hand illustrated uniquely by yours truly.
Over the next month I will continue working on the illustrations and hosting beta test games with the intent of a Kickstarter campaign early spring to allow pre-orders and production. Stretch goals will include expansion packs, an official decorative playing board and more.

Also I am in the waiting wings for a future licensed project for a galaxy far far away and beyond. Keep your fingers crossed.
