Arkhangel: the Great Nameless - "The Black Gate"

There are places out there, in the deep crevices of the various planes of existence, where the barriers between Realms are weak. This is most concerning when it's a barrier to Primo Regni, and truly dangerous when there are those that actively work to open these doors. We knew this card would be a visual representation of our Big Nasty, Z'xhuul. And we knew we wanted to get it right, so we turned toward an artist that we really admire: Torren Thomas (seriously, check out his caricature work, it'll blow your mind).  It was a shot in the dark, really, we didn't know if he'd be into it, but we lucked out and he was! And we are absolutely stoked about the final product.  In fact, you'll be seeing this piece show up all over the place as we get closer to ready for the crowdfunding campaign!

Arkhangel: the Great Nameless - "Defenders of the Realm"

An army of peacekeepers engineered and grown for the express purpose of keeping Sceptrum impregnable.  They are not known for their sense of humor, their observance of social niceties or their tolerance of civil disobedience.  This can sometimes lead to friction among the population of the outer rings, but when it comes to performing their duty, the competence of these shock troops is never questioned.  

We're big fans of Kasey Fleming. So when we knew we were going to need some sci-fi themed artwork, we immediately knew we wanted him to do a piece for us. So we hit him up and, fortunately, he graciously accepted.  He chose the Defenders as the piece he wanted to do, and we couldn't be happier with the result.  Thanks again, Kasey!
