It's happening, peeps!

We've officially sold out of Gloom of Kilforth worldwide and the reprint demand has been huge. So we're going to launch the mini expansions plus base set reprint Kickstarter to run from September 29th-October 31st. More details to follow but here is an overview...

Wave 1 - Reprint of Gloom of Kilforth: A Fantasy Quest Game (+ differences from 1st print run!!)

Wave 1 will be delivered in the first half of 2018.

This will be a straight up reprint of the first print run of Gloom of Kilforth including all of the original Kickstarter stretch goals, and with the following changes:

Raging Vampire Misprint - this card will be corrected to say Influence test instead of Study test.
Colour Blind-friendly enemy tokens - the 4 purple enemy tokens will become yellow.

Original owners of the game who want these altered components can request them at no extra charge by purchasing any of the expansions below. The rulebook will be getting updates for clarity too, and will be made available as a free digital download to everyone.

Wave 2…

Wave 2 will be delivered in the second half of 2018.

3 small box Expansions: ‘Encounters’, ‘Events’, and ‘Rewards’!!


To clarify, this is not the ‘Touch of Death: A Fantasy Quest Game’ full game stand-alone expansion - we will be Kickstarting that sucker next year. This is three separate plug-in expansions that will add more encounters, events, and rewards to your existing copy of Gloom of Kilforth, simply choose the packs you’d like to order, shuffle in the extra cards, and you’re good to go.

‘Darker Gloom’ Alternate Art Pack!!

This is a small set of duplicate cards but with original artwork that was either a bit too terrifying, or a bit too racy for a PG rating. These are simply duplicates of existing cards but with slightly different art - they are not required for play. If you do purchase them you can either replace your existing copies with them, or just shuffle them into your games along with their existing counterparts.

‘Pimp My Gloom’ Upgrade Kit!!

This set of components will include:

A bigger velvet bag
More Dice - 6 white, 6 black
16 Race Art Standees, 8 of each gender
Four Ancients standees
20 extra Plastic Stands
Replacement Location cards with black and white Gloom sides
Player Aid cards

How does all of this impact development of 1066, Tears to Many Mothers?

It really doesn't. Everything is already in hand with 1066 - the final art and graphics files are being developed as we speak, and will still be sent to the printers when they’re ready.

Where do I sign up??

Make sure you’re following us on Kickstarter so you’ll be notified when we launch, and we’ll do our best to let you know from our end, but as always with these things - it will be on you heroes and legends to spread the word by sharing, liking, tweeting and chatting to everyone you know about us and what we’re doing.

Be really nice to blow the lid off of this one, and we’d love to have you along for the journey, so mark that date in your diaries:

29th September for the return of the Gloom.

There maybe a simpler way but these work;

Goto the KS page and View Pledge and when the new screen opens click on Tristan's name and then press Follow on the new screen.

Or

Go to the Comments page on KS and click on Tristan's name and then press Follow as above.

Fantastic news, Tristan. Already in.

Wowsers - awesome responses already!
I would've checked back in sooner but it was game night and I was told to 'leave the bloody mobile alone'. It's also 1am here right now...

@Florent, great question! Pete Thane has given a good breakdown above, but as long as you're subscribed to the game here on BGG you should get plenty of notification when we launch.
@Nick, pure filth!
@Guilherme, these small expansions will basically move you towards the game as it was originally envisioned, i.e. more cards and more adventure variety! We had to pare the game right back to make it a saleable game so this will top you all back up to the content I've had access to for years, and it will give you all a load of new beautiful art to boot too. Think of the decks as a stop gap until we launch Touch of Death next year.
@Justin, are you serious about the blue not purple?? Seaside/coastal areas will not feature yet, these decks are about bulking out your existing adventures.

Look forward to seeing you all on the 29th, and thanks again so much for all your lovely and supportive comments everyone.

I like this idea. (I marked my blue tokens with a dot to tell them apart from purple.)
