About

 Legacy of Darkness is the first adventure from DANGER MAGNET, utilizing the Ubiquity system made popular by fan-favorite Exile Game Studio's Hollow Earth Expedition.

Legacy of Darkness is a thrilling adventure set within the pulp-inspired imaginations of tabletop gamers the world over. Your characters will scour the surface world of Europe in a race against the Nazis to discover one of the greatest treasure hordes lost to antiquity:

The lost treasure of Vlad Tepes, the man the world would come to know as Dracula.

Legacy of Darkness combines the action, adventure, and thrills of your favorite pulps and serial movies with the mystery and horror from the golden age of cinema. Creating a one of a kind adventure that will leave your players excited for more.

Legacy of Darkness is a long adventure that will take most groups 3-6 sessions to complete with several options left to the game master to spin off more adventures in the future.

 Legacy of Darkness is a complete adventure that can be utilized by an already existing group of characters, or played using the iconic playable characters such as Dirk Savage, Lillian Vaile, John Choi, and the mysterious Zamira Escarra, or the game master and players can create all new characters making use of the character creation guide that will help any party ensure they are ready to take on the Legacy of Darkness.

It is planned to be a 60-page adventure that may grow as the Kickstarter grows.

Legacy of Darkness will contain all the stats for all the enemies faced (no need to go looking through all your core rulebooks), sinister traps, perplexing puzzles, tactics for encounters that contain combat, as well as a few new and original adversaries that the characters will have to overcome if they wish to learn the secret of the Legacy of Darkness.

The adventure will contain tips from the creators on how to bring each scene to life, how to complicate it to challenge the characters further, as well as suggestions on how to describe scenes for all the senses.

During the Kickstarter campaign, there will be opportunities to unlock a new Talent, a Motivation, as well as a new Archetype.

 Danger Magnet is made up of Mike Dukes, Lauren Gray, Nich Gray, and Shawn Hilton.

Legacy of Darkness is a passion project for this group of creators who have worked with Exile Game Studio for over a decade. With credits in Secrets of the Surface Worlds, Mysteries of the Hollow Earth, Revelations of Mars, Perils of the Surface worlds, numerous Exile Game Studio Free Roleplaying Game day adventures, as well as acting as the GM coordinator for Exile Game Studio at GenCon and Origins.

The adventures created by the DANGER MAGNET team specifically for Exile Game Studios Ubiquity System include the Dirk Savage Adventures, Wilderness Adventure Kids, Six Guns of Death, Nazi Hunter, and many more have been fan favorites over the last decade at GenCon. These adventures have led the DANGER MAGNET TEAM to 5 Best GM of the year awards presented by Exile Game Studio.

Other credits include Atomic Highway, Quantum Black, Pulp Fantastic, Hood, ETU: Degrees in Horror, Deadlands, Dawn of Legends, G.E.T. Into Action, Iron Dynasty, Agents of Oblivion, and multiple videos for successful Kickstarters.

Legacy of Darkness is fully authorized and licensed by Exile Game Studio.

 

 NEW STRETCH GOALS ADDED!


In conjunction with QUANTUM BLACK GAMES DANGER MAGNET will hire up and coming gaming sensation ALEX THOMAS to create a short (1000 -1500 word) adventure that will touch upon the events that unfold in LEGACY OF DARKNESS.

 This Adventure will be created using the QUANTUM BLACK setting and see the fallout of LEGACY OF DARKNESS in the modern age.

 From the Gothic Horror of LEGACY OF DARKNESS to the SURVIVAL HORROR OF QUANTUM BLACK the LEGACY OF DARKNESS casts a LONG SHADOW! 


 This adventure will be included in all pledges from the YOU have RELEASED the DARKNESS ($15.00) level AND UP! DANGER MAGNET wants to thank our friends at QUANTUM BLACK for making this crossover possible.

The Legacy of Darkness crept forward to modern day with a Quantum Black tie-in adventure with the last stretch goal. This time, we go backwards in time to the 1890's for a Leagues of Gothic Horror tie-in! 

None other than our friend Wiggy Wade-Williams of Triple Ace Games will create a secret society for Leagues of Gothic Horror that has ties to the Legacy of Darkness! And to accompany this, our own Nich Gray will write  a short (1000 - 1500 word) adventure to go along with it! PLUS a digital copy of Triple Ace Games' Guide to Vampires for all pledge levels of $15+!

This society and Adventure will be created using the Leagues of Gothic Horror setting and see some of the early days of LEGACY OF DARKNESS in the Victorian age.

From the Gothic Horror of LEGACY OF DARKNESS to the PENNY DREADFUL HORROR OF LEAGUES OF GOTHIC HORROR the LEGACY OF DARKNESS casts a LONG SHADOW!

This adventure will be included in all pledges from the YOU have RELEASED the DARKNESS ($15.00) level AND UP! DANGER MAGNET wants to thank our friends at TRIPLE ACE GAMES for making this crossover possible.

 The sinister reach of the LEGACY OF DARKNESS extends ever further and is breaking all the rules! Achieving this stretch goal means that our friend Wiggy Wade-Williams of Triple Ace Games will break his own rules! He will create a unique character for one backer drawn at random.

This will be a full-page (6x9 format) character, but with a twist that breaks the rules as written - they'll be a half-vampire! And being written by Wiggy, it means it is official! And, half-vampires don't age, so this character can participate in all of the eras of LEGACY OF DARKNESS!

And what else do you get? Why, an All for One adventure (1000-1500 words) by our own Mike Dukes to put your musketeers through their paces! That's right! All for One, Leagues of Gothic Horror and Quantum Black! Try as you might, there is no escaping the LEGACY OF DARKNESS!

Don your hat, strap on your sword and tell your lackey to ready your horse! There is EVIL afoot! 

This adventure will be included in all pledges from the YOU have RELEASED the DARKNESS ($15.00) level AND UP! DANGER MAGNET wants to thank our friends at TRIPLE ACE GAMES for making this crossover possible.

The LEGACY OF DARKNESS has crept forward in time to Quantum Black and cast its shadow back to not only Leagues of Gothic Horror, but All for One as well. Now, we cross dimensions and planes of existence! At $6,000, Matt Somers, the author of Desolation, will write a 1,000-1,500 word tie-in adventure set in that apocalyptic fantasy realm!

Heed the call to action! The lands of Scondera need you!

This adventure will be included in all pledges from the YOU have RELEASED the DARKNESS ($15.00) level AND UP! DANGER MAGNET wants to thank our friends at GREYMALKIN DESIGNS for making this crossover possible.

Style Chips - 26 chips (50pts), 12 White, 8 Red, 4 Blue, 2 Black. Add $30 to your pledge to receive this add-on.

 FULLFILLMENT

The pledges for the print versions are at a lower amount because backers will need to later pay at cost the base printing and shipping costs of the book at DriveThruRPG.


Risks and challenges

Every startup faces certain risks in the creation of their first project.

Luckily the Danger Magnet team has already produced work for several companies in a timely manner, has the skills (four times over) to create a thrilling adventure in Legacy of Darkness, the technical expertise to layout and produce a polished finished product.

The outline for Legacy of Darkness was finished long before the Kickstarter was begun. The rough draft for two of the three acts is nearly finished with the third expected to be finished within a week of this Kickstarter going live. With the power of four creators working together we expect to finish the entire project quite quickly.

The cover for Legacy of Darkness was completed before the Kickstarter went live as well as the full-color art for all four Iconic characters. Danger Magnet is continuing to work with the artist throughout the project to ensure that all art is in hand in a prompt fashion.

Fulfillment is expected to be done through Drive Thru RPG which has a long and well-respected reputation for not only delivering product, but also allows for a better shipping rate to our European customers.

By avoiding the pitfalls of adding too many physical items to our first Kickstarter we believe we are in the best possible position to deliver a quality product that will exceed expectations as well as deliver in a timely fashion.

    ROGUES GALLERY

    ROGUES GALLERY

    You will name a non-essential non player character (name must be approved by DANGER MAGNET) that will appear in Legacy of Darkness, and be useable by game masters.

    Will include named character, short stat line, and one paragraph bio. Will include character types such as: Doctor, Law Enforcement, Pilot, Clergy, etc.

    How is this different than Casting Call for Legacy of Darkness?

    The Casting Call for Legacy of Darkness will include non-player character central to the scenes they are in, and the characters will deal with them directly with potential consequences.

    The characters created in the Rogues Gallery are non-player characters that the characters may interact with in a very limited capacity, but each game master may decide to expand their role in their game. An example is a doctor that may simply patch up a character and send them on their way. One game master may have that encounter be a quick one line in their adventure, while another game master may expand that character to become an ally, join the group, or just have a much more extensive interaction.

    Plus, it’s a fun way to get your name or a friend’s name into the game.
