Update for the Week of April 15, 2022

No playtesting report this or next week. Some of our playtesters are working, and we need a full crew for the climax.

We do have Covenant news, though. More below the fold.

Here’s what we want to talk about this week:

  • The valka Matriarchy
  • How to become a playtester


We finished the early history of the valka and the Matriarchy today. Again, there’s not much we talk about right now, as we’re giving our patrons first crack at it. However, we can say that the valka are probably the most ancient still-extant sapient species in the Orion Arm, with a history that goes back millions of years. The Matriarchy spans much of that history, which definitely makes it the oldest domain in the game.

Remember, we’ll make these domain summaries available to the public when we’re finished with all of them. However, if you’re one of our patrons, we’ll make them available as we finish them (which is another reason you should support us on Patreon).


Have you downloaded Covenant’s playtest rules yet? Did we mention that they’re free? If not, do it now! They’re free! All we ask is that you tell us what you think about them. You can send your feedback in two ways:
