Content Notes: Kickstarter Edition of Shadows of Kilforth Board Game by Hall or Nothing Productions. Includes core game and all unlocked stretch goals. Please note: unless otherwise stated paid add ons from the Kickstarter Campaign are not included.
Far along the Eastern Frontiers of Kilforth, the malignant gloom has returned. The Ancients lurk in the shadows, conducting their terrible affairs once more. New, terrifying and pernicious creatures emerge from beyond the veil. But as new threats rise, new heroes gather their arms and their wits to meet them. From the frail safety of the ancient Shrine of Moneshoba, a small band of heroes ventures forth. Time is fleeting, the enemy numberless, and the Ancients voracious. Through the descending gloom, against all odds, the heroes must prove themselves worthy, lest their sagas fade into legend.
From the award-winning team behind Gloom of Kilforth: A Fantasy Quest Game - the sell-out game from Tabletop Gaming Magazine's Top Ten Games of the Year - and 1066, Tears to Many Mothers - the beautiful historical card game, nominated for a Golden Geek Award and an Origins Award and winner of a 2018 Best Art Award - Shadows of Kilforth: A Fantasy Quest Game is the ultimate RPG adventure experience in a dark world of Gothic high fantasy.
In Shadows of Kilforth 1-4 heroes must work cooperatively, or race against each other, to brave the perils of the gorgeous eastern wilderness of Kilforth. Explore ancient ruins, solve mysterious quests and survive terrible monsters. Unimaginable treasures and untold riches reward the bold, and horrific fates await the foolhardy.
We have actually already unlocked 4 new Encounters for Shadows of Kilforth! That's right - the unlocked stretch goals from the previous smash Kickstarter for Gloom of Kilforth spilled over into this campaign, so let's see what more life we can breathe into the world of Kilforth together as the campaign progresses.
As with Gloom of Kilforth: each new stretch goal game card unlocked means at least one beautiful, new, and unique piece of art!!
As with all of our games Shadows of Kilforth: A Fantasy Quest Game is Solo Friendly. Unlike other games you don't have to manage multiple heroes, you can play as a single hero without having to change the rules or reduce the experience, or you can play as a whole team of heroes should you choose to.
In Shadows of Kilforth players have 25 days to develop their powers and defeat an evil entity called the Ancient. During daylight, heroes travel Kilforth, overcome encounters, and gather rewards, whilst building an incredible story called a saga. Each night the land falls further into gloom, and if time runs out before the Ancient is defeated, Kilforth is engulfed in gloom and the heroes lose the game.
