Today there was a Kickstarter exclusive strategy guide sent of by mail to the backers. I have not played the game, so I can't tell much about it. Two parts, one about the guilds and one about the adventures. And then about three expansions: dark passage, burned oak and sea farers.

When we played the main game, were were struck that the adventuring part - while taking too long and too much space/concentration to really fit as part of the main game - could work well as a game in its own right... so I'm actually quite interested to try out Dark Passages. Taken out of context, the combat was one of the more-fun parts of Karez.

Unfortunately it requires extra components which haven't been made available. I wonder if GEG could see their way to making PnP for those components available to backers, to make up for the extra wait...


I am unsure about one thing, though - I thought this bonus game was supposed to be making use of the dungeon tiles and miniatures, but while the minis are used, there's no sign of the dungeon tiles mentioned in the KS campaign and instead there's nine double-sided cards. Are these replacing the dungeon tiles, or has the game been reworked to not need them? Or is there another game coming later which uses the dungeon tiles which are also coming later?

Seems the bad press is affecting their latest KS, so they're trying to fulfill the "low-hanging fruit" of the old KS so that they start to get some good press and more backers.

At least, that'd be my read, based on a cursory reading of the situation.

The link to the dropbox file is in the latest update: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/451575426/fallen-city-o...

The update is marked as for backers only, so I won't post the direct link to the dropbox file here, but I'll send it to you in a GM if you message me.

Elad has also stated in the comments that if you have issues with dropbox he'll email you the .pdf directly if you message him.

Don't think so.

It would be nice to see those. But in the first room, I like to see the new rules.
