Board Card Game: Cutthroat KingdomsLong time no journal entry!
Thought it was high time to feature a project that i was artistically involved with and which, since October 2017, is finally out for sale.
Meet Cutthroat Kingdoms, a board card game with medieval setting, backstabbing and intrigue:
"You are the leading lord or lady of one of the six eminent Houses in the Kingdom of Aurum—a grim fantasy world fraught with danger, intrigue, and plague. You must use your armies to claim Territories, gather wealth, recruit Hirelings, and hire Mercenaries as you pursue your nefarious plots and jockey for power. Political intrigue and assassinations abound, and powerful strategic alliances are offset by bloody conflicts. Most importantly, will you strive for domination alone, or tie your fortunes to another House through a well-placed political marriage!"

IcarusOut of selfish ambition and vain conceit
I jump off this plane so I can meet
My Maker in the sky
When I hit the ground
Look in His eye and stand my ground
Because I am human and I know all
I am man and will stand tall
I am god unto myself
I am ruled by no one else
So I jump and spread my wings to fly
Because I am human and cannot die
But the wind thinks differently
And the sun laughs
Because I am human
And falling fast.
