It is with a heavy of heart that we (The Most Radient Fluttermind) must inform you that not all gruffs have decided to bask in the merciful tendrils of the Fluttermind! In fact Bubbles, (may her name be cursed forever) has decided to throw her lot in with the pretender-god On'Eno! This after all the generous things that Fluttermind has done for her!
In years past was it not Fluttermind that shared their otherworldly gift with her son Grover! Did not Fluttermind (they of the astounding kindness) not pluck the Gitaxian Probe from another reality and share it so selflessly with her utterly undeserving offspring? Therefore from this moment forth is Grover forbidden to use the Gitaxian probe! Fluttermind (praises be unto my fluttery name) will still be allowed to use the probe. Fluttermind instructs all to support his divine ascension by going to https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/studiowoe/gruff-whispers-of-madness and supporting our inevitable transcendance. Thank you for your support!" -Fluttermind
In Gruff: Whispers of Madness the future of the world is in your hands! Over the course of the campaign we are running various challenges to determine the fate of The Betwixt. Fluttermind narrowly defeated On'Eno in our hashtag contest, with a mere 2 posts difference between them, but the war for our reality is far from over, and the stakes have increased!
The next challenge will be worth 2 victories and could lead to a tie between our titanic demi-gods! So let's have a coloring book contest! The rules are super simple. Color a picture of On'Eno or Fluttermind, then submit your favorite eldritch terror to firstname.lastname@example.org The monster with the most entries will get one point, and the monster with the best entry will get a second point! Good luck, and may the best tentacled horror win!
You can show your excitement for Gruff: Whispers of Madness by using these profile icons. Adopting one of these images can have a future impact on the story of the game and who will ultimately prevail over the Betwixt. Fluttermind, or On'Eno!
The first skirmish in the epic war between On'Eno and Fluttermind will take place on Facebook. There are 2 posts on the Studio Woe Page. One with Fluttermind another with Xiaochang.
Each like will give 1 point, each comment will reward 2 points, and each share will reward 5 points!
Whichever post receives the most points by the time the Kickstarter launches will award 1 victory to their side. We will encounter many challenges between now and the end of the campaign. Whoever has the most victories by the end of the campaign will be the ultimate ruler of the Betwixt!
It's time for a new adventure! Lets make the world a more excellent place for goat-battles by sharing our favorite deck lists on the official Gruff Facebook Page! https://www.facebook.com/Gruffgame/ A successful quest will include an image of your favorite deck. And a description of how the deck works, and why you think it is awesome!
For example "I really like this deck that I call Bluenose's Dream Team because it it focuses on making Bluenose an unstoppable killing machine by playing lots of Dream mutation token on both friends and foes!" Completing this quest will earn you a promo reprint card of Bubble's Block (which fixes a typo in the original version where it was not shown as being a condition.)
As always, please send the link to your completed post to email@example.com along with your shipping address to earn your reward!

The Holiday Season is here again, which means it is time for another Shepherds of Woe Quest! To participate simply give a copy of any Gruff game to a friend. Then send an email describing what happened to me at firstname.lastname@example.org along with your mailing address. When you do I will send this promo card your way!
Studio Woe has also just launched it's "Black Friday" sale, which will be running from now through November 26th, which gives you a super easy way to finish your quest!
Pick one up at https://studio-woe.myshopify.com/ for yourself, or to share with a friend! Just remember to let me know about your act of generosity at email@example.com to get your reward!
The Shepherds of Woe program is getting a massive overhaul for the better! Each month a new quest will be available with a new reward. When you complete the quest, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address and your reward will be sent to you immediately. Shipping costs may apply for orders out of the US, basically if the order costs more than $5 I may ask you to pitch in.
There are some huge advantages to this system over the previous way of doing Shepherds of Woe. You will no longer need to register. There is no chance of not getting credit for points earned in the past. Rewards are sent immediately rather than at the end of the year, and this system is no longer a competition between shepherds! Everybody wins!
The first Shepherds of Woe quest will earn you a promo reprint card that replaces Bubble's misprinted "Deep Secrets" card. To earn the card, simply rate and write a brief review for Gruff: Stuff of Nightmares at https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/249677/gruff-stuff-nightmares then send a link to your review to email@example.com and we will ship the card over to you. If you have already written a review for Gruff: Stuff of Nightmares, that works too! Just send the link over to me and I will get you hooked up! I am really excited for this new program! Thank you all for your support!
