The hills are alive with the sound of Vampires…
In the Heart of Africa we saw Solomon Kane begin his African Adventures. Now he’s back for more, and this time it’s Vampires! These aren’t the Bela Lugosi type of Transylvanian blood-sucker though; they have an African twist which gives a unique challenge for our hero. Are you willing to stand beside Kane as he confronts these shape-shifting, night-stalking foes?
This new add-on includes two new Adventures based on the works of Robert E Howard: The Hills of the Dead, and The Moon of Skulls. It comes with all the new minis, cards, and tiles you need to journey across the savannah with Solomon Kane, and fight alongside him Against the Vampires!
HILLS OF THE DEAD
Solomon Kane trades the jungles of the western coast for Africa’s eastern savannah. He carries a musket to deal with dangerous game, and a strange, cat-headed staff, inscribed with incomprehensible glyphs, given him by N’Longa. Little does Kane know it, but the staff will prove every inch as useful a weapon as the musket, against the horrors infesting the Hills of the Dead.
In this adventure undertake exciting dream quests with the necromancer N’Longa, and earn an artefact of colossal power and antiquity. Save the young woman, Zunna from deadly, serpent-aspected vampires that cannot be harmed by mortal weapons. In the final battle, protect N’Longa from the horde while he weaves a powerful spell to take control of the very forces of nature, then defeat the undead and raze their city.
THE MOON OF THE SKULLS
Solomon Kane’s African adventure ends here. Discarding everything he cannot take with him at the foot of a steep cliff, Kane climbs through the night to reach a hidden plateau. Somewhere on the plateau is the entrance to Nekari, the Vampire Queen’s realm, wherein lies what he has scoured the continent for decades to find.
In The Moon of Skulls enter Nekari’s subterranean city, and outwit and defeat her Negari warriors to rescue the slave, Marylin. Confront Nekari herself, and speak truth to her power. Find the secret passages leading to the prison of the last Atlantean Priest, and learn from him the history of Nakari’s realm and how to defeat her. Finally escape the city with Marylin on the Moon of Skulls, before the High Priest performs his ritual to wed her to The Master.
As always, if you are interested in any of our add-ons, simply click on the green “manage your pledge” button near the top of the page. Then increase your total by the amount of any add-ons you wish to include in your pledge. So, if you have a Puritan pledge ($110) and want to add the Against the Vampires ($45), you would increase your total to $155. If you decide to add Heart of Africa later ($55), simply click on the green “manage your pledge” button again, and add that amount to your total. You can change your pledge as many times as you want while the campaign is running.
Note that during the campaign there is no way for you to tell us what the money you pledge is actually for, so don’t worry about that now. Instead, after the Kickstarter is over we will send you a “pledge manager”. This allows you to tell us exactly how you want to allocate your pledge, which add-ons you would like, how many core boxes, and (most importantly) where we need to send it all!
