One of Raine's biggest hobbies has always been gaming. It all started with an Atari and spread out to Yu-Gi-Oh!, Magic: the Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons. As an artist, Raine takes pride in painting models for games as well as making his own terrain. He's also been a writer for many years, working both in the journalism industry and writing pieces of fiction. He decided to create Initiative : Tabletop as a platform to talk about all things gaming that he simply thought were cool, and reviewing games became a part of it!

New Video Game, Accessories, Books, and More Announced for Shadows of Esteren

Shadows of Esteren Occultism Book

We all know about the most recent Shadows of Esteren Kickstarter for their new book Occultism, and it reached 650% of its funding goal. The book is now in production, as is the brand new music album, Rise. Agate Publishing, the company behind the game, has also announced a couple of new toys in the Shadows of Esteren line, which include a Bestiary, cookbook, and a Shadows of Esteren video game.

We’ve finally gotten some news on the long-anticipated video game for the Shadows of Esteren series. Entitled The Mac Lyr’s Legacy, the game is in its final stages of production and players can expect a beta release later this spring. The game will be reminiscent of old point-and-click games like Broken Sword and Monkey Island. You can check out the game’s first screenshot below:

Long-requested by fans of Shadows of Esteren, a Bestiary PDF will now come to life as a result of the recent Kickstarter. Up to 20 creatures from the world of Esteren will be featured, along with full game aids to help GMs create their own monsters. The game’s Creative Director, Nelyhann, had this to say about the release of the new Bestiary:

“Shadows of Esteren wouldn’t exist without the amazing support we’ve received through the community on Kickstarter. What was once a seemingly impossible dream is now becoming a reality, and we can’t thank our backers enough for giving us this chance to achieve it.”

Here’s an image from the Bestiary in all it’s glory:

Something that’s got me quite interested is the mention of a Shadows of Esteren cookbook. We’ve received an image of the cookbook from Agate, but there have been no details on it yet. There was, on the most recent Kickstarter, a stretch goal that added 3 recipes based off the Esteren world in a folder for backers. These recipes include an appetizer, main course, and dessert. I’m anxiously awaiting details on the cookbook, and for now you can drool over the promo image we’ve received for it:
