True Messiah / True Messiah strategies
« on: November 29, 2018, 10:28:20 AM »
What are some strategies you've discovered in True Messiah that you like to use? Share below!

I'll start us off: using Fruit of Knowledge for defense. Although Fruit of Knowledge is generally an offensive miracle (most often used for messing up enemy temples-in-progress), because nonbelievers cannot ever be on a holy space, it can also be used on your own followers to protect your holy spaces.

The next time an enemy moves up to one of your temples, try using Fruit of Knowledge to preempt the move: pray with a follower on that temple, then turn the praying follower into a nonbeliever and move it onto an adjacent space to block the attack!

True Messiah / Rulebook update
« on: June 13, 2018, 12:04:28 PM »
I've updated the True Messiah rulebook with a few wording changes, as well as a new page discussing the four messiahs--who they're rumored to be, what their strengths are, and what their distinct starting cards are.

True Messiah / Gearing up for Kickstarter #2!
« on: February 12, 2018, 11:10:46 AM »
Hey all! I'm giving True Messiah a second Kickstarter campaign next month.

In preparation for the Kickstarter, I've updated the True Messiah rulebook (as well as the "How to Play True Messiah" video series) to reflect the rules changes I've made over the past year and a half. :)

Hey guys! In case you didn't notice (or don't follow the Sinister Design Channel on Youtube), I've begin creating a series of videos explaining how to play True Messiah.

Here's the playlist.

I'll be adding more videos as time goes on!

True Messiah / True Messiah: your questions answered!
« on: October 13, 2015, 10:11:54 AM »
The time has finally come to reveal what this is all about! This morning, I announced True Messiah, a game of cult warfare. Click that link for the basics on what the game is about, plus a bunch of really amazing surrealist art.

True Messiah will be my first commercial board game. This should give me a chance to focus on what I consider to be my core strengths (creating unique worlds with interesting gameplay mechanics) while giving me a bit of a break from the grind of having to fix endless bugs post-release. (Board games don't have to be programmed, and they don't have bugs!)

Have questions about the game? Post them here, and I'll do my best to answer them!
