About

In a Land of Myth and Legend, there exists an ancient continent where tribes of Woodland Magi, Dwarves, Men, and other peoples reside happily and bountifully, living out their long lives as heroes, treasure hunters, and wisemen. Our story takes place leagues away, across the Sea of Screams in a desolate land. This story is about another people. Travelers from this land speak of lives devoted to violence, treachery, and greed. They speak of a grand arena, a blemish on the otherwise vacant landscape, where great warriors clash and bones shatter, all to the satisfied roar of the bloodthirsty multitude.

The Grand Arena!
The Grand Arena!
 

Players begin the game by being dealt Loot Cards (Armor, Weapons, and/or Dirty Fighting Cards) to help them get started. Players begin by moving their character around the Pits of the Arena, following the instructions on the spaces. Players will combat enemies and other Players to gain levels and Loot. As characters get stronger, they may attempt to move through the Gate Spaces to the other Tiers of the Arena (the Bloody Stair and the Funnel). But in order to move through the Gates, Players must defeat the Gate-Guards who get stronger at the different Tiers of the Arena. As the Players move through the different Tiers, combat will become more difficult because enemies are stronger and attack in greater numbers. But don’t move too slowly or the other Players may beat you to the center of the Arena (The Iron Ring), leaving you in the mud and the blood. When a Player encounters an enemy, another Player, or a Gate-Guard, they must Fight!, combining their equipped items, level, and dice rolls. As Players defeat enemies, they collect more Loot and Trophies which are used to gain levels. Dirty Fighting Loot Cards have special rules which can help or harm Players during combat, among other things. But use your Dirty Fighting techniques wisely, or you’ll find yourself at the mercy of other Players. To win the game, be the first Player to reach the Iron Ring, defeat the Pit Lord protecting the Iron Ring, and defend your position against any challengers who are in the Funnel.

  Battle Shed Productions presents Pit Orc: The Arena Fighting Game. We need your support to go from prototype to production and bring Pit Orc to the public market. For now, we are outsourcing production, and have outlined what it would take to do so on a large scale. Through your participation and investment in Battle Shed Productions, you will be answering an action-cry for support from a dedicated group of artists and gamers. While we are just a fledgling organization, our hearts and heads are clear and we know what we must do. Pit Orc cannot be shelved and forgotten, the excitement and mad energy of the arena is propelling us forward. By virtue of our small size we have nothing but potential for growth and to include the minds and talents of more artists and gamers who, like us, want nothing more than to create community and facilitate recreation for all. We are new to Kickstarter, and grateful for the support of this community. All of us here at The Battle Shed can bring Pit Orc to life, or more literally to your game night. Battle Shed productions will continue to develop and produce epic games and stories. Join us in our quest community of gamers, if you pledge and donate we can give you Pit Orc along with worlds of new adventures.

We want to Thank Kickstarter, and most urgently and appreciatively, thank you, the supporter.

Risks and challenges

We are "the little guy", the dreamers and idealists. Some support for this campaign we expect to come from our own independent social networks. However, for Battle Shed Productions to thrive we need to reach more of the gaming, art, business, and crowdfunding communities. We have taken pains to ensure that Pit Orc is ready to go out the door, and with the support of the community we will be able to open that door. Part of the struggle we are working through comes from the creative process itself. Ideas are wonderful but it is in the collaborative process that positive growth and raw energy transform into table ready games. We can't and won't stop here at Pit Orc, The World of Myth & Legend we are creating has already spawned concepts for no fewer than six other games based on interactions within our world. The gaming giants that back many of the most successful games have an audience outright. Battle Shed Productions has only the vitality of the members to draw from. Our team is prepared to give it all and more to make this game development enterprise a success. Through our working organization many more games will find their way to the game tables of families and friends around the globe.
