Last days of Dungeon Saga: The Dwarfs Kings Quest

So Mantic's latest Kickstarter project is soon about to end and it is so far looking very promising indeed. I made a post about this 19 days ago and thought it was a quite a good deal by then. Well it has been upgraded somewhat since and you also have some really good add-ons like the Warlord of Galahir and Infernal Crypts. I have pledged a total of $283 so far, and will probably put some more money into this project as I think it looks really fun and promising.

If you haven't already check out the Kickstarter, go and do so... for any Fantasy Wargamer or RPG:er I think it's all worth it.

As you can see below we now have three stretch goals to get to, and I think all of them is quite manageable.

New Stretch Goal

4,500 Backers – Rise of the Shadow King, a Dungeon Saga Adventurer Gamebook by Matt Gilbert

Can’t possibly wait until your big box of Dungeon Saga goodness arrives? Well, now you start the adventure with Rise of the Shadow King!

"The shaky, animated bones of a pair of skeleton warriors emerge from the trees to your right. Adorned in ancient, elaborately detailed armour plates, the burning gaze of these Revenant warriors pierces the forest gloom as they shamble towards you…

Rise of the Shadow King is a Dungeon Saga Adventure Gamebook in which YOU are the Hero. Set in the fantasy world of Mantica, you can immerse yourself in a quest to defeat the Shadow King, master of undeath. This is a classic adventure where you have plenty of opportunity to battle the undead denizens of Mantica, travel across plains, swamps, forests and an ancient fortress as you journey towards your ultimate goal. You might even stumble upon a Zombie Troll!

Many of us found our way into this hobby via Adventure Gamebooks like this and so this makes Rise of the Shadow King an ideal accompaniment to the Dwarf King’s Quest board game: classic dungeon crawling and adventuring in two great formats!

So find those 2 dice and an eraser, sharpen that pencil and get ready to take on the might of the Shadow King."

If we break 4,500 backers, we will include a digital copy of this book in every copy of theDungeon Master pledge level ($100 and Early Bird).

We will also print a run on demand and make them available to add-on to your pledge for $5 if you would like a physical copy.

New Stretch Goal

$666,666 – BONUS Unholy Crusades

If we hit this stretch goal, we will add the Unholy Crusades to your Kickstarter exclusive Dungeon journal!

This will form a new short story featuring the Abyssals, and include a set of 4 narratively linked scenarios for fighting the forces of the Abyss, prominently featuring our Paladin and Cleric.

This gives you a whole new set of missions to play through with your bonus Abyssal miniatures in the Dungeon Master pledge level.

The final mission of the set is pretty neat, as it will feature an alternate way to play. If you've got the Infernal Crypts expansion pack, you can combine them with your bonus Dungeon Master Abyssals and play them all at once!

That'll mean a dungeon overrun with demonic forces... surely only the brave and mighty can stem the tide?
And finally…

This has been an incredible journey, and we couldn’t go into the final weekend without something big and monstrous to aim for. I mean, what kind of Mantic Kickstarter wouldn’t save the biggest until the last weekend?

$700,000 – BONUS Big Undead Demon!

We wanted to add something that rewarded everyone for the fantastic support this campaign has received – and because you had gone through so many stretch goals we have made something new…

We thought a new, large Undead creature would be a blast as an end level encounter – and what could be more fun than if it is an Demon brought back from the dead?

So, please meet Ba’el – the Undead Demonlord – held in thrall only by the Necromancers most powerful binding spells!

Option 1

Option 2 -

Option 3:

Obviously this is not the final design but we had to give you a sneak peek. Once we have a finished design we’ll share it, but until then we’d love to hear your views in the comments on what you would love to see in an Undead Demon figure. We intend this to be an imposing undead creature so it is going to be a big impressive figure (certainly a step larger than the Troll, for example, and it will come assembled) so let your imaginations run wild and drop your thoughts below. It will stand tall in the dungeon setting - and on many a Kings of War table perhaps too.

When we hit this stretch goal, we will produce the Undead gribbly brought back to unlife by the insidious Necromancer Mortibris. This incredible Monstrous Beast is a mighty boss-level enemy for your heroes to face, one that will take all of your might and courage to defeat!

If we hit this stretch goal, we will produce it and include it free(!) in pledges of Dungeon Master ($100 and Early Bird) along with everything you need to play.

We will write and add a scenario to your Dungeon Master pledge where eight of your heroes (2 per player!) will take on the beast and a replenishable horde of Undead minions.

Prepare for the battle of your lives adventurers!

You can also add-on Ba'el as an Optional Add-on that you can get by raising your pledge $15 if you want an extra one.

And finally…

This is a huge stretch goal that offers even more value for your pledge level.

We want everyone to know about this so please, if you haven’t already, please tell your friends, tell your family – spread the news and spread the noise!

Over 4,000 backers have joined us on the journey, and we want more people to enjoy Dungeon Saga and get themselves a great new game.

We’ve got demonic invasions, huge Undead monster and an epic fantasy yarn that you can involve yourself in – it’s the final weekend of the Dungeon Saga Kickstarter folks. Tell everybody!!

  1. Model count is not that impressive but they do seem to have a lot of game there.
