Thrilling… Spirits of the Forest: Kickstarter Campaign just has started


Thundergryph Games just has started today the Kickstarter Campaign. Founded after two hours, it is thrilling for me as designer which stretch goals will be unlocked (some are already) and thus which of my ideas will come into life.
