Below you'll find a development snapshot (we hope you enjoy the ones we've been posting for FS). All the chapters are written, I have the Event, Campfire, Creature and Omen decks hand-printed and some heroes ready to play.
We built a tool to give guidelines for Referee's to create creatures based on those found in our world. Select a base creature, adjust stats and size, behavior it will exhibit and final you may give it special abilities.
Here's a dev snapshot.
