v1.9 From Below Feature Reveal - New Cards



This is a feature reveal for the upcoming Armello update, v1.9 From Below. You can find the update hub here.


Howdy everyone!

This is the sixth and final feature reveal of v1.9 From Below, new cards. Three new cards are coming to Armello, two of which are Rot related. To give a little bit of an insight into the art of Syphon, which is also the key art for v1.9, is League of Geeks co-founder, director and art director, Ty Carey.

With Syphon I wanted to go full metal/epic - it's a powerful rot spell! It had to be very dramatic to do the card justice, and what better way than a classic stormy, cliff-side summoning? A number of different artists helped out on it - Adam sketched out the Sorcerer-Rat's pose, I rendered it all up and Jack finally animated it, adding some nice touches like the rain. What was important to me was getting those great columns of rot-stuff swirling powerfully through the air, and the vastness of the space they're travelling through.

Collabs like this bear great fruits (perhaps in this case rotten-fruits?).







That's a wrap for feature reveals for v1.9! Naturally there will be a bunch of bits and pieces that aren't relevant to the main changes, such as a nice little bump for Hand Cannons and Longbow, for example.


We're hope you're as excited as we are.

v1.9 From Below Feature Reveal - Bane Telegraphing



This is a feature reveal for the upcoming Armello update, v1.9 From Below. You can find the update hub here.


Hello travellers!

Welcome to the fifth feature reveal for Armello’s big new update, v1.9 From Below. Today we are talking about Bane Telegraphing.

Experienced adventurers are well aware that Banes spawn from dungeons at night. Now, during the day certain dungeons will indicate that a Bane will emerge the following evening. This will impact the decisions you make when traversing the twisting lands of Armello. To talk about this a little more, we have League of Geeks co-founder and director Blake Mizzi.

We all like to wonder what’s in those deep dark fortified dungeons to the abyss, what horrors they hold back and terrors have been unleashed in their confines – Too many heroes have been surprised and ravaged by a Bane spawn at night, though they are random, there is a logical pattern and system to their apparent madness.

Bane Telegraphing is a new feature we’ve implemented in the new update V1.9 ‘From Below’, we’ve added an indicator in the form of rising, bellowing Rot smog to ‘telegraph’ a Bane’s pending arrival. Players can make great use of this knowledge; They can move to protect a nearby settlement; Or not proceed to a Settlement at all and save their action points; Plan their journey to not come face-to-face with a Bane; Or specifically hunt these creatures out to claim their Prestige. Principally players now have a little more knowledge to make decisions about how to proceed with the threats ahead, and that knowledge is a wonderful thing in the grim kingdom of Armello.

Hit us up if you have any questions and please discuss below!

About This Game



Armello is a grand swashbuckling adventure that combines three styles of play; The deep tactics of card games with the rich strategy of table top board games, combined with a character role-playing system.

As a hero from one of the clans of Armello, you'll quest, scheme, hire agents, explore, vanquish monsters, cast spells and face off against other players, with one ultimate end goal in mind — storming the palace and becoming King or Queen of Armello. The Kingdom of Armello is as dangerous as it is beautiful, perils, banes and bandits hide around every corner and a spreading corruption known as the rot is leaving no creature untouched.

Armello is League of Geeks’ attempt to revolutionise digital board and card games, whilst providing players a rich world within which they can craft their own stories of epic adventure. The aim was to create a rich game full of backstabbing, close shaves, shattered alliances, ruses and empty promises - a perfect game to play online with your friends.
