One week to go! It has been an incredible 23 days, with 7 more to go... This kickstarter has been amazing, and we are positively elated by all the feedback, as well as by the growing enthusiasm of this new community. We cannot thank all of the backers enough for believing in Aetherium and for giving this incredible new game the impetus it needs to reach your tabletop. Glorious.
Aetherium is real and it is here to stay! With that in mind, here is a very brief sneak peek of what we mean when we say that.
Looking forward. Several of supporters have asked about House Ikaru with some considerable interest; however, House Ikaru is just one of several tremendous factions we have in the works. Quite a few supporters have also asked about a faction we mentioned during the interview with Bill at Gamer’s Lounge: The Rhommox.
The Rhommox are the toxic by-product of the first great trade war, in which an unknown entity (was it a government program, a corporate double-agent?) injected a wild and malicious virus into the Aetherium datastructures. Among the devastation left in the wake of the trade war, the Rhommox virus was lost, abandoned to the ruins of quantum noise, and forgotten. There it festered, multiplied, gained sentience.
You will be hearing more from these monsters later in the year, but we wanted to express our gratitude by giving at least this small preview of what the future holds.
