I realized at some point that I had forgotten to include the following image in the first update. I hadn't meant to hold it back! Sorry about that!
Brundali created his train with ferocity and desire in mind. The resulting locomotive became known as the Golden Dragon, and having it rolling through the land became seen as a source of pride to the Technicians who labored on its creation.
Art by Aphroditus
All-in-all, the train is made up of the locomotive, crew quarters, Brundali's meeting car, private sleeper cars, diner car, Brothel cars, boxcars for storage, and the caboose!
A plot update will occur later today! Thanks for your support and interest!
Brundali Rail Heist preorders begin June 1st!
Sorry, comments are closed for this article.

Now we get to see some real steampunk feelings in this set.

Love the look of this train. Glad that you remembered to post this. Looking forward to more art and story. Also when is the next set of card previews?

Aphroditus did a great job. I wonder if we will see more art on the exterior of the train.

Well, yeah, this has to be revealed, since it's the logo for the entire set. The spikes along the top of the cars are a nice touch.
@Daralyn - I'm not sure where to find a citation for this, but I believe it has been stated to be canon that all the sets take place in the same world, just in different regions and time periods. Vanilla seems to take place in a rough equivalent of present-day America, Triskelion is like Renaissance-era Europe, Fortune seems to have a lot of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean influence in it, and from what we've seen of Brundali, the setting seems heavily influenced by Chinese and Indian geography and culture (it's apparently even going to be the first set to have qilin in it,) and a large part of the plot revolves around the introduction of industrial-era technology, which is arguably similar to the Meiji Restoration (i. e. the mid-19th century.)
The prehistoric setting that Tanglebrook uses is probably the hardest one to pin down. Because of the lush jungle and the whole riverfaring theme, I like to think of it as happening in the Amazon Basin, but I'm not sure whether that actually was a conscious influence on the setting.

I always though if the whole game is played in "one world" because we see some map now and then but the themes are way too different for all those races to live on one planet and don't know of each others

And this is only a taste of the Steampunk Tech that is part of this set. I'm really loving the lore and history, and the richness the creative team is pumping into this story. :)

The Golden Dragon looks awesome.
Daralyn on May 8th, 2015 @ 02:30 PM
um - but in that logo I've seen a wolf - or it looked like wolf to me
do you see what you caused? - you've completely misguided me!!
I demand retribution!
Viva la revolution!

Seriously the best fantasy train design, and what a pretty piece of art to round it out! :D
