Renegade to Publish North Sea Saga
Renegade Game Studios is pleased to announce two expansions for the acclaimed Raiders of the North Sea from Garphill Games. These two expansions add new options and challenges for players as they test their raiding skills in the Kennerspiel des Jahres nominated Raiders of the Noth Sea. Both expansions require Raiders of the North Sea to play and are expected to release Q4 2017.
In Raiders of the North Sea: Hall of Heroes, a mead hall has been constructed, attracting a new breed of adventurers. Each raid brings new quests for the daring to endure. But with mead in abundance, there is little room for the wary. So sharpen your axe and ready your shield, there are new adventures awaiting!
Hall of Heroes brings in new ways of gaining resources, acquiring crew and scoring Victory Points. After each raid, a new Quest is placed onto the Board. To complete a Quest, players will need to send (discard) warriors from their hand of a certain strength value. Once completed, the Quest is placed above a Player’s Board and will score Victory Points at the game’s end. Each Quest also rewards players with Iron, Gold, Silver and other resources. Players can also collect Mead, which can be spent during a raid to fuel their crew and gain even more strength in battle!
In Raiders of the North Sea: Fields of Fame, enemy jarls have joined forces to help defend against the onslaught of raids on their settlements. But despite their threats, there is fame awaiting those who seek to kill or subdue them. Encountering a jarl is sure to bring injury, but now is no time for the faint-hearted. Onwards to the battlefield!
Fields of Fame brings a new dynamic into the game with the addition of Jarl tokens being mixed in with the Plunder and Valkyrie. When taking a set of Plunder with 1 or more Jarls, the raiding player must reveal from the draw pile, which Jarls they are encountering. They have the option to kill (for Fame and other rewards), subdue (to recruit them) or to flee. Killing and subduing will bring wounds to a players crew, but fleeing will lose them Fame or Victory Points. Players can also gain Fame by raiding with overpowered crews. When a crew’s strength is above the highest tier for scoring Victory Points, players move up with the Fame Track, which scores additional Victory Points at the game’s end.

Renegade Game Studios and Oni Press to release The Tea Dragon Society Card Game
San Diego, CA (October 3, 2017) —Renegade Game Studios and Oni Press are proud to announce The Tea Dragon Society Card Game designed by Steve Ellis and Tyler Tinsley. Adapted from the Oni Press original graphic novel by Katie O’Neill, The Tea Dragon Society Card Game is a game which entwines players into the enchanting world of Tea Dragons. This delightful card game is expected to release in 2018.
Steve Ellis is the co-designer of Railways of the World: The Card Game and owner of Rainy Day Games in Portland, OR. Tyler Tinsley is a talented game and toy designer who has worked on toy projects for licensors such as StarCraft, Borderlands, and Skylanders. Tyler and Steve have previously collaborated on Dicey Goblins.
“We were instantly attracted to the beautiful artwork within The Tea Dragon Society, and after absorbing the story, we felt compelled to create a game that fits this fantastic world inspired by the creative vision of Katie O’Neill,” said Steve Ellis.
“It’s our hope that The Tea Dragon Society Card Game gives families and friends the opportunity to create and forge memories while bonding with their very own Tea Dragons,” said Tyler Tinsley.
“I’m a huge fan of what Katie O’Neill is doing in comics and have been wanting to work with her in the game space since reading Princess Princess Ever After. I love Katie’s message of inclusiveness and the way that she represents universal human experiences in a way that’s both relatable and charming,” said Scott Gaeta, president of Renegade Game Studios. “With The Tea Dragon Society Card Game, we look forward to introducing the world and characters Katie created to a new audience through games. I couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with Oni Press again and to welcome Katie to the Renegade family.”
“I didn’t know what to expect when I first played the prototype of The Tea Dragon Society Card Game, but as soon as I’d finished my first round I felt like I’d just spent a dreamy afternoon in the world of the Tea Dragons,” said Katie O’Neill. “Everything fit the lore so perfectly, and it felt so magical and special to have such a thoughtful game based around the world I had made built by talented game designers! It feels so true to the spirit of the story, and I hope that when people play it and raise their Tea Dragons, they’ll make their own memories to share with friends and families.”
The Tea Dragon Society Card Game is slated for release Spring 2018. The Tea Dragon Society graphic novel will be released in the comics market on October 18, 2017.
In Ex Libris, you are a collector of rare and valuable books in a thriving fantasy town. The Mayor has just announced a new seat in the Village Council, Grand Librarian. The prestigious and lucrative position will be awarded to the citizen with the most extraordinary library! Unfortunately, several of your book collector colleagues (more like acquaintances, really) are also candidates.
To outshine your competition, you’ll need to expand your personal library by sending your trusty assistants out into the village to find the most impressive tomes. Sources for the finest books are scarce, so you’ll need to beat your opponents to them when they pop up – especially if they match your library’s secret focus!
You only have a few days before the Mayor’s Official Inspector comes to judge your library, so be sure your assistants have all your books shelved in time! She is a tough cookie, and will use her Official Inspection Form to grade your library on several criteria including alphabetical order, shelf stability, prominent works, and variety. And don’t think she’ll turn a blind eye to books the Council has banned! You’ll need shrewd planning, cunning tactics, and perhaps a little magic to surpass your opponents and become Grand Librarian!
