First Review of Witches of the Revolution

Bower's Game Corner has posted the first video review of Witches of the Revolution. You should (of course!) watch it for yourself, but here are some of our favorite excerpts:

“I enjoyed Witches of the Revolution… [a] rock-solid one to four player game.”

“Very well done — huge thumbs up on the rule booklet.”

“I love, love, love this board.”

“Component-wise, it’s fantastic. The box insert is outstanding. The board is super-stinking useful — take note other game companies, this is what your board should look like[.] [Board design] is about user-friendliness…and this is a very user friendly board.”

“Tons of replay value.”

“I like it as a solo game.”

“I love the differences [from other games].”


Unknown Armies awarded a Silver ENnie for Best Production Values at Gen Con!


Our UA3 production team is extraordinarily grateful to the fans of Unknown Armies for voting for us in this year's ENnie Awards. We came away with the Silver ENnie for Best Production Values, which we believe recognizes the hard work and effort of our crew: art director Aaron Acevedo, graphic designer Thomas Deeny, editor (and postcard crafter!) Colleen Riley, cover artist Jason Engle, interior photographic artists Benôit Felten, Lassi Seppälä, Thomas Shook, and Jeannine Acevedo, and of course designer and co-postcard-maker Greg Stolze.

Congratulations to the Chaosium for their Gold ENnie and to all of our colleagues and friends in the publishing business for their well-deserved recognitions and nominations!

Opening the Statosphere!

In Unknown Armies, the Statosphere is the realm of pure ideas, a place that those who truly embody a principle or archetype can ascend to, to join the Invisible Clergy that shall ultimately become as one in the form of the demiurge. Or at least that's the running theory.

For the rest of us, though, the Statosphere is the name for Atlas Games' new partnership with OneBookShelf to create a place that fans of Unknown Armies can share their own creative ideas for the game. If you've always wanted to publish that adventure idea, or that creepy game master character, or that new adept school of magick, the Statosphere is here for you to do so and earn a little income in the process.

We've already seeded the Statosphere with two products from UA3 writers Tim Dedopulos and WJ MacGuffin, as well as a handy template package (Word and InDesign) to get you started. Follow the link above for all of the details and a list of content guidelines.

We look forward to seeing you ascend!
