Castle of the Devil

With the campaign entering the final few days, we just have time to unveil the last of the black boxes on our Virtuous bundle: The Castle of the Devil.

(Pour retrouver cet update en français, cliquez-ici)

This is one of our smaller Adventures at two Acts. It is based on a fragment from Robert E. Howard that sets up the situation, and not much more. There is a summary hanging, a new companion, and a dastardly foe. Classic Solomon Kane territory.

"I think that is the castle the peasants spoke of, they call it by a most unsavory name... the Castle of the Devil"

As we have visited Germany’s Black Forest several times already, we don’t need to add lots of rank and file repeats. You already have what you need for that in both the core box, and from the many earlier stretch goals you’ve busted through. However, it’s always fun to create character miniatures for the key individuals in a tale, so they are all included here: the loyal John Silent, the thoroughly unpleasant Baron von Staler, and Staler’s… um... friend.

Staler, it turns out, is something of an amateur alchemist, and has been dabbling with black arts that require a regular supply of corpses. It doesn’t take much to see that he and Kane will not see eye to eye about this. However, the baron is a powerful man, with wealth and warriors to protect him. Solomon is merely a stranger, and a foreigner to boot. Luckily he has you on his side…

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 Castle of the Devil add on ($20), you will increase your total to $130.

If you have an Early Bird Puritan pledge ($110) and want to add the Castle the Early Bird Virtuous Bundle ($190) so that you have everything available for Solomon Kane, you would increase your total to $300.  

Please 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!  

Also note that you need to take the Early Bird Virtuous bundle if you have an Early Bird Puritan pledge, to avoid getting The Right Hand of Doom twice.

      Horrible à souhait !! J'adore ces ambiances autour des "nouvelles" histoires de Solomon Kane !! J'y retrouve un magnifique hommage à toute la littérature fantastique. Mary SHELLEY (Frankenstein), Maurice RENARD (le Docteur Lerne), HG Wells (l'île du Docteur Moreau), Stephen KING (Salem) et HP Lovecraft bien sûr. Magnifique bestiaire !!

      I'm loving the whole project as a whole, but this one does feel a bit small in comparison, I get the value is much smaller, but still, very few minis and only a handful of tiles

      Love this final add-on update!

      I also really like the Von Staler mini as-is. The stripped down Von Staler in the art doesn’t come up as a baron to me; just a guy in a shirt outstretching his arms.

      My main comment is that 4 new tiles doesn’t seem like it would flesh out a full gothic castle, so hopefully some of the other tiles in the core box will be castle-themed as well?

      Guys that Von Staler art work is EPIC but his mini is terrible and looks nothing like him or near as cool. Can that mini please be changed to reflect his epic art work, Thank you

      Love it, but I don’t suppose there’s ANY chance of getting a Von Staler that matches that artwork?

      @mark you could always try and split the payments, get the base game during the campaign, and add the all-in during PM

      Just take it.......$$$ I mean.......can't really afford the all-in, but this amazing, awesome, alchemical add-on (with a golem no less) is a must. I'd rank it only behind the expanded Red Shadows tale as a " must have"

      Frankenstein now

      love it!

      @stephen "then a squeaky little adventure for the finale rather than something grand to outdo them all" we're still on the first SG for that, so don't judge it yet :P but being the last SG storyline i'm expecting we'll see something amazing with it, perhaps a final mini the same size as the red horror?

      Dark Alchemy you say?

      Nice looking expansion and way to finding the all in content

      Oh my ... the minis are awesome again, but that Golem is out of this world :)

      Flesh Golem is awesome. Feel like the last week of this campaign has been a bit anticlimactic, what with stretch goals of the same figures over and over again and then a squeaky little adventure for the finale rather than something grand to outdo them all, but c’est la vie. I am still all-in.

      The Flesh Golem is amazing!
