valhallan42nd Posted February 1, 2014 Report Share Posted February 1, 2014 EDIT: 8/11/2014: Urban Lasercraft has come onboard as a sponsor! I'm quoting Nova Open head honcho Mike Brandt's post in A Wyrd Place (a great Wyrd Facebook community). Thanks to Will Urban, every Malifaux attendee at the NOVA Open is going to get some INCREDIBLY AWESOME custom mahogany scheme markers, as well as an assortment of other radical lasercut items. Photos pending! It also looks like we'll have staff-signed copies of Crossroads as swag. It also looks like there might be some special stuff headed our way that you otherwise can only find at GenCon or waiting for online sales to go up in the Oct-Jan timeframe, though I cannot confirm or deny this at present. Why aren't you coming to http://novaopen.com again? EDIT 8/4/2014: Here's the latest information update. Wyrd has stepped up in a big way to provide support for the Nova Open. Justin Gibbs will be in attendance, and he's not coming alone. He's bringing a big bag of goodies with him in the form of prize support and signed artwork and rulebooks as prizes and as items for our charity auction. If you want the Gencon LE model experience and you can't get to Gencon, you will want to find a way to the Nova Open. Justin will also be leading a special designer seminar going into the depths of game design, what it's like in the Wyrd studio, and his insights into Malifaux, Evil Baby Orphanage and more. He'll also be hanging out in our charity lounge along with Wyrd freelancer Mack Martin. The terrain is finished, and looks amazing. Our terrain experts have outdone themselves and our tables will be second to none. You can see the WIP pictures here: http://roadtonova.blogspot.com/ Our guidebook is approaching being finished, and you can see the cover here: http://wyrd-games.net/community/topic/98409-justin-gibbs-mack-martin-and-wyrd-le-prizes-at-nova-open/?p=743879 It's official: Eshadie and I are the leads in charge of the Malifaux events this year at the NOVA Open.It's held in Crystal City, Virginia, right next to DC.
