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.
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.
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.
