Hello everyone!

I failed to find any other proper place for this thread, so i`m posting this information here. Moderators - please be free to move/remove this thread if you decide that it does not belong here.

I`m developing a new board game set in traditions of old space 4x video games (such as Master of Orion, Space Empires etc). The game (named Lord of The Stars) has reached the stage where i have a lot of its elements to show and explain how they are working. There is a playable prototype (in Russian as i`m from RF) that i`m using to play test. The game is almost finished, but i need an artist to make race arts and some rulebook decorative scenes.

Lords of The Stars game is intended to be an international product. It will be translated into English once i get my first Russian prototype from my publisher.



Recently i`ve launched an IndieGoGo campaign with the goal to raise some funds for an artist. If you are willing to contribute or just to learn more about the game - please follow this link: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/lords-of-the-stars-board-game/x/2371297?c=home

I would be happy to get any kind of help from you - be it a 1$ donation or a word spread on other game forums or a contact of an artist. Or simply a comment left on that page.

Thanks to all in advance.

Have you put the prototype game up on http://boardgamegeek.com/. Great community there and lots of support and advice. Also have you considered http://www.kickstarter.com/discover/categories/games?ref=sidebar to fund the game?

Kickstarter does not support Russians, so that`s unfortunately not an option for me ( That`s why i have an IndieGoGo campaign instead.

And boardgamegeek is a good pointer. Thanks!

The Lords of The Stars campaign has raised enough funds for the first race art.



If you wish to get more info on this race - please visit the campaign`s webpage: http://d2oadd98wnjs7n.cloudfront.net/medias/706202/pictures/full/20130314233311-avis.jpg?1363329194

Check out the new perks that rewards contributors with one of the race arts in full resolution to fit their desktop.

Hi. I`ve made a report about one of the test plays of Lords of The Stars.  It contains description of first 9 turns, map creation, end game and some conclusions.

This report can be found here: http://okimstudios.3nx.ru/viewtopic.php?p=25

Also there are some updates to Lords of The Stars campaign on IndieGoGo: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/lords-of-the-stars-board-game/x/2371297?c=home

Yeah, now go tell him that face-to-face ;)

There is also a cool looking lizard in the updates section of campaign. And soon will be a cool looking Ant (if everything goes right)...

The numbers in the image are in English, not in Russian.

Because English is the mother tongue of the whole world......... Isn't it?

Most of what you see On IndieGoGo page is translated in English due to it being an English site. It would be odd if i`ve launched Russian-only campaign there.

But the current prototype is in Russian, thus all the photos are showing Russian names, texts and numbers.
