In a strategic move to help grow role-playing games and to expand them creatively, the price of Book of Fools has been expanded from “free” to “$750,000”.
David Manning, popular spokesperson, had this to say: “Ironclaw is not going away. You will still be able to game with all your friends. You’ll just have to pay more money to do so. A lot more.” He later added: “We have never intended to subsidize our competitors. ‘Embrace, extend, extinguish’ is a time-honored tradition in business, and it’s about time we sent a clear message to our community about what our ultimate goal is. And what it’s always been.”
When asked about the users who have already downloaded Book of Fools for free, Manning elaborated that those customers will be expected to pay “20% to 25% in royalties”, but was not clear on exactly what that meant or how that would be collected or enforced.
When asked if this would have an impact on how Ironclaw games would be streamed in the future, one influencer stated that they hope this will all blow over soon and that no one will remember this ever happened.
Beyond the sky, beyond what’s known, beyond what was possible… join us on an odyssey of discovery that will take you not just to the stars but also to the heart of your self.
Built upon the same engine as Ironclaw, Myriad Song, Urban Jungle, and Vital Hearts, this new game is designed to work with you, not beside you. Safety tools, narrative device, and game mechanics all blend together, in an ontological future where physical form and intelligent design are one. Be the change you want to see in the universe!
Eumorphica will be crafted by a stellar team of creators, some new and some returning from Sanguine’s previous games. There are limited opportunities available to include an illustration of your own transcendent character that you design!

Experts are still divided on whether the Internet is a passing fad or is already considered passe. You can supplement the discourse on the official Sanguine Discord.
We are the designers of Sanguine Games. We love to make games. Years ago, we invented the BOOK OF FOOLS. After reflecting on its fungible majesty, we realized that BOOK OF FOOLS was so fungible, other people could share it with others. This revelation inspired us to laugh out loud like so: HAH!
Tap here to get your own copy of BOOK OF FOOLS. Your copy will be yours, as actual media that you get to keep, and definitely not as some kind of scam to get people to chase higher and higher prices for tulips while burning the gross national product of Argentina. And this book is all ready to go, with no strange secret add-ons that will make the whole thing unavailable when everyone suddenly becomes uncomfortable with misrepresentation slipped in at the last minute, on the sly. We don’t fool around.
The world has secrets in remote corners. Horrors from out of time. Devils that are out for blood. Monsters that feed upon the helpless, in ways beyond mortal understanding. Only a select few have the knowledge or the power to fight the supernatural, and the responsibility to protect the innocent falls upon your shoulders.
But within every heart lurks a shadow. The forces that cultivate hate, that prey upon greed, that induce fear and terror… they are not just out there, they are within you. Can you fight with monsters without becoming one yourself?
