Just a quick update to say a digital version of the Dungeon Saga novel should now be available in your libraries! We're sorry that the novel took so long to reach you... unfortunately the original author let us down, so we had to start from scratch, which significantly delayed the whole thing.
However, the new author John Roberts has done an absolutely fantastic job and has created a particularly atmospheric take on the Dungeon Saga adventure, featuring the main characters going up against the evil Mortibris. It certainly sent chills down our spine!
Here's a quick extract for those yet to read it:
Deep in the dark belly of Dolgarth he writhes, bathed in the light of his weirdfires. Their sickly glow washes over him as the elven powders burn within them. Sorcerous, narcotic smoke drifts about his face and he breathes deeply. Lines and eddies of power crackle across his brain as his tongue seeks out his dry lips. His moan echoes in the darkness as his body rises, tense with the shimmering potential of magic. Then he slumps once more into the throne and he exhales.
He can feel them. Tendrils of awareness shake through his new domain like strands of spider silk stretching from dead to dead, all the way down to his languid mind. One is a magician. He can sense the familiar pressure of the young man’s currents rippling against his own. The other is an elf, the bright flare of her life radiating in the gloomy puissance of his awareness; his power. It was greater now than ever.
Mortibris let his eyes crack open. He smiled as he saw the Tome clutched in dead, fleshless hands. The dead crouched in the centre of his array of weirdfires, nursing the book as though it were as delicate and fragile as a newborn lamb. Mortibris was not yet bold enough to risk touching it himself. Instead he closed his eyes once more and let his awareness drift into that hollow skull and from its black pits he peered.
Horrible stuff... in a good sense, that is.
LAST CHANCE TO BACK TERRAINCRATE
Also, just in case you've missed it, we're currently in the final days of the TerrainCrate Kickstarter. This is a campaign to fund a range of plastic, fantasy scenery that's perfect for adventure games like Dungeon Saga.
We're currently approaching the $500,000 mark and have unlocked some awesome scenery pieces, as seen above. The furniture was always one of the most popular aspects of Dungeon Saga, so we're delighted to be able to make more!
