Version Released

Note: this release is compatible with previous releases going back to, so if you are GMing a tournament right now, and are using or later, you are safe to upgrade.


This is exciting. My brother-in-law arranged to have some drawings done for the expansion, and I just got these a week ago. Basically, these are replacements for my own artwork (which was pretty pathetic), and boy are they great! The artist's name is Vrin Thomas, and you can see some of his work on his facebook page. If you like his work, I recommend hiring him! Here's a few of the images he sent:

That's the Lich, the Carnoplant, a Dragonman, and a carrion crawler. Pretty sweet! I added these to this RealmSpeak release, along with all the others, in both a black & white format, as well as color. I hope Vrin likes the colors I used...

It was actually a shame to shrink them, but its a necessary step to getting them on the chits!

Oh, something rather cool in this release: under the View menu, you'll see a couple of entries for tracking Die Rolls. That's right, every single die roll in the game is now tallied, and you can see the statistics for each kind of roll. Why? I've gotten a lot of complaints about the "random number generator", with people saying that it's a little "6" heavy. Well, now you can do your own statistics, and see if that's true. Have a rough game? Check the statistics, and see how it all laid out.
