The Future of Through The Breach!

I was looking at the old Kickstarter page.

Through The Breach Line Plan

Thanks to your overwhelming support we are able to plan for the future. We currently plan for the line to have 8 books in total. This makes it easy for players to collect the complete set over the years to come. This won't include our Penny Dreadfuls, so there will be plenty of Through The Breach for everyone! While things might still be subject to change, over the course of the kickstarter, we'll be revealing more of the books that we currently plan for the line!

 

1. Into The Bayou (Released)

Explore the Bayou and the mysteries within the Necropolis. Includes rules for creating Fated Bayou Gremlins.

2. From Nightmares (TBA)

This expansion is all about the native denizens of Malifaux, and the more terrifying characters and locations. Includes rules for creating Fated Neverborn.

3. Under Quarantine (Released)

This tome contains everything a burgeoning necromancer could want to know. Includes rules for creating Fated Stitched.

::

4. Within The Steam (Released as "Into the Steam")

Delves into all things steampunk, and arcane, including a massive armory, as well as expanded elemental magic and rules for creating Fated Invested.

5. In The Guild Wars (Renamed "Above The Law??" TBA)

The re-eruption of the Great Guild Wars back on Earthside Shakes Malifaux; the city that feeds the beast. This book delves into the effects of the war, and it's secrets!

6. Beyond Fate (TBA)

Designed to take standard campaigns to legendary heights, this book includes rules for Avatars to be used in high power campaigns.

-

Future Ten Thunders Book that was not in the original line plan. (TBA)

(7 - 8) Fated and Fatemaster Almanac condensed into Core Rulebook.

 

So it seems like more than half the line has been released, with a possible extra book as a goody? Am I missing something here? Does anyone know the release dates of the rest of the original line? Is the "In The Guild Wars" book the Above The Law book? and is the Beyond Fate book, the new Ten Thunders book? Will we get an Earthside Book? What is the ETA if anyone knows?

I've been away from the franchise for awhile, so I don't know about how the inner works of Wyrd have changed. I have recently gone insane at my local FLGS and bought all the Malifaux and Through The Breach books they own. I felt like they almost were like "Save something for someone else!", but for them sales, are sales.

Anyways, so the original planned line up changed?

Some priorities shifted once I took over.

For instance, there's really no "Great Guild Wars" planned for Earth; now, we just have the spreading war that is The Other Side. Similarly, Avatars just aren't a thing that anyone in Malifaux can do anymore, let alone Fated characters, ever since Governor-General Kitchener became the Burning Man.

Don't worry, if you guys won't be doing something, well... that's what homebrewers are for :P

Speaking of content though, are there any plans for the system once the rest of the "faction" books and the epic level book are released, or are you guys more focused on the current schedule?

Well, the Ten Thunders book hasn't been created yet, nor the Adventurer's Guild (if that becomes a thing) or a more solid Outsiders book (combined with the Explorer's Guild?) ... there was also to be a Masters-level book, but I think that one's been set aside. So, one, two, MAYBE three books left before the line's wrapped up, I think?

That said, plenty of room to add more stuff. Locations, a focus on NPCs, new Talents, adventurers, storylines ... you could keep it going for a decade, honestly. Not sure if they *want* to since I don't think the income's very strong on the line, but the potential's there. 

Who knows? They might join the groups like the Infiniverse that allow fanpublished works on DriveThru, taking a cut of the sales and letting anyone create things. Lord knows I've got probably a book's worth of STUFF in my head, but the biggest holdup for that kind of thing is always art. Malifaux art is pretty unique, rubbing up against Victorian and Steampunk, but ... hrm. Splatterpunk I think it was called once?  The "Alice in Wonderland... but crazy!" stuff, topped off with cowboys and undead. Pretty broad, yet very specific, niche that's real, REAL hard to get more art for. 

But now we have new management. We'll see where it goes from here! I hope for the best.

(That said, if anybody wants to hire me, hey, I work cheap.) :D
