Judges Angels – Support for a Struggling Theme

As a blast from the past, today we’d like to direct you to an old article that was posted on the Cactus Game Design message boards. Take a walk with us through the development of the Judges support angels as they were printed in the 2011 RoA tin.

The Foretelling Angel

As Dayne mentioned in his earlier article we wanted to spread the wealth of territory class Heroes outside of the clay brigade.  Additionally, the theme of Daniel was identified to be one that could really benefit from a strong character, and thus we arrived at The Foretelling Angel.

The Foretelling Angel appears to Daniel in Daniel 10, with what is in my opinion, one of the coolest description of a person in the entire Bible, “there was a certain man dressed in linen, whose waist was girded with a belt of pure gold of Uphaz.  His body also was like beryl, his face had the appearance of lightning, his eyes were like flaming torches, his arms and feet like the gleam of polished bronze, and the sound of his words like the sound of a tumult.”  But the Foretelling Angel doesn’t just look and sound cool, he comforts Daniel and then tells Daniel some pretty interesting prophecies.
