XenoShyft puts players in charge of a NorTec mining operation as they look for Xenosathem, a very valuable mineral. However, The Horde, a name given to various groups of alien life forms, are also looking for Xenosathem. And the only thing standing between your bottom line and a grisly death is how you deploy your NorTec defense forces. Well, things are getting nastier as XenoShyft: Dreadmire takes you into the swampy, nasty areas and still tells you, "survive if you can." New Weather effects in this stand-alone expansion will challenge players like never before. That's where you come in.
CMON has put out a call for playtest groups. They are looking for interested players or play groups who would like to have a chance at helping develop this set. Have you ever wanted to have direct input into how a game's mechanics work? Now's your chance. If you're interested, send in your name, location, a summary of your game-playing experience, and your reason why you feel you would be a good fit for the playtest team to firstname.lastname@example.org, using the e-mail title XENOSHYFT: DREADMIRE PLAYTEST.
With that, you may be selected to be one of the people that gets a first look at this new set and help make it so maybe NorTec wins every now and again (we keep telling Mike he should let them win from time to time, but we need more people to help convince him).
