The Cursed Ones

Posted by Helmgast AB (Creator)


Let’s jump right into the fire, with a status update.  

This is the first document, the current complete list of Advantages in the game, we release publicly to you guys. It is some 35 pages in PDF format. The document will be open for comments, so anyone with access can comment on anything. The material is in the first pass of translation, but hasn’t been through editing by our editor, so expect some strangeness. Any kind of feedback is appreciated - from wording, or poorly explained rules, to names, and mechanics. Also, please feel free to use the list together with the Quick Start Rules, to spice up the player character choices for picking Advantages.

Link is here:

Originally, our intent to have the forums up and running before opening the gates to material for you guys to proof, analyze, and comment upon. With that not being the case, we have to improvise, and will add the first document for review online now and see how this goes. Feedback on this process is much appreciated.  

As for the rest, the Core Rules are mostly translated. Several Kickstarter add-ons are also being finished - like The Black Madonna, and Taroticum, and the Quick-Play Scenarios. What is lagging is the website and the KDL Forums. I dare not give an ETA on that at this time, but it is being worked on (sickness has been rampant during the winter, which push the timeline, to everyone's frustration).

For our Swedish backers, we also want to let you know that Helmgast will be present at Sweden’s largest RPG convention Gothcon (during the Easter, in Gothenburg), where we will run a KULT: Divinity Lost scenario, called Oakwood Heights

It takes place in Detroit, Michigan, during the cold, snowy winter of 2015, where a group of Law Enforcement Officers and member from the DA’s office revisits a horrific murder crime scene together with the murderer, in order to reconstruct the chain of events.  

Link to the scenario:

After the convention is over, we aim to release an English version of Oakwood Heights as a Quick Play Scenario free online, for you to use together with the KULT: Divinity Lost Quick Start Rules.

      Jump right into fire ... lol!
      Take your time with the book, quality matters more.

      Helmgast, I've looked over the document. I have some major criticisms (which are in the annotations - I won't repeat myself here) with the Advantage and Edge mechanics. It looks like a good start however. I'm looking forward to seeing where this is going to end up. Keep up the good work!

      Thanks Helmgast :-). So printing spring would mean what a late summer despatch?

    5. David on

      Late Spring, as in, around May 2017?

      We stated this is Update #60: " If we can continue at this pace, we aim for a printing date in late spring."

      This is interesting to hear, but could you let us know when we are likely to get the products please?
