Thud & Blunder – progress report 2


So, it has been a slow month due to holidays and other interruptions, but we are very close now to issuing the Gamma version to our internal review team. We are talking mid to late September for this.

We have also been talking to our hard and soft copy distributors, layout artist and printer. More on them closer to release.

Yes, you read that right – hard copy. Initially we were considering a soft copy release only, but we have decided this game needs a physical book.

You should note that this will be a lot bigger than Blood Eagle or Daisho, with more content in most sections.

  • For example, in most of our books we have provided 10-12 companies/ buntai/warbands. However, confirmed warbands for this game include:
    City Guard
    College of Wizards
    Hedge Knight
    Noble Knight
    Orcs & Goblins
    Thieves’ Guild
    The Guardians of the Dead
    Ogre Reavers

And… there may be more, or we may keep the extras for blog freebies.

As with all our games these warbands are templates for you to build on and amend to fit your own chosen fantasy setting.

We are also including a complete guide to creating your own, unique warbands in the rules as well.

If you’d like to see the game in action, and are at Colours next month, drop by our table and try it out.

    Does this make IHMN redundant or does it cover a different period? Just beginning to get into IHMN and don’t want to pursue if a blind alley.

      IHMN is not redundant, after all we released the Gothic supplement for it last year 🙂
      Thud & Blunder shares some of the same mechanics, just as Blood Eagle (Dark Ages) and Daisho (Samurai) do. T&B is a fantasy game and is separate from the IHMN Steampunk milieu.

    It will be easy to play a solo scenario like party of heroes vs monsters? There will be rules to create monsters like d&d exc… ?
