In Septima, you play through four seasons, each consisting of five rounds, to gather a powerful coven of Witches and gain enough Wisdom points to become the worthy successor of the High Witch. You will accumulate Wisdom as you practice your craft in the superstitious town of Noctenburg: gather ingredients, brew powerful Potions, perform Rituals, heal the afflicted, and work in the shadows to turn suspicion and anger into support and acceptance.
Pledges start at $79 for the deluxe edition.
This pride season, [Lawrence Gullo is] paying tribute to Matelotage – the way pirates would tie the knot during the golden age of piracy. Not just a spicy piece of queer history, matelotage is also a distinctly anti-establishment and anti-imperial form of queer marriage, where two mates would contract their bond, and make each other heirs to their joint fortune.
I designed this image originally to be featured in an advertisement for an LGBTQ history tour of my hometown, and I’m delighted to say it graces many shopfronts in that form as we speak! I liked these two so much I wanted to make a t-shirt friendly version of the design to share with you – here it is!
Pledges start at $20 for a t-shirt – stickers are also available for $3.
