Another Legacy part of the legacy! (we had to) Thanks to all our returning backers and new backers to the Legacy family! If you're still interested in any of these products you can stay in touch above at the "Late Backer" button.
Peter Pan is one of the most interesting stories in copyright law and history, being only open to specific public domain since 2007. So it's fresh and new to our world of open creativity. The creator of Peter Pan, J M Barrie also inspired us. When he passed away in 1929, he gave all the rights to Peter Pan to Great Ormond Street Hospital in the UK. GOSH (Great Ormond Street Hospital) grew and survived in part by the funds Peter Pan's play and book rights brought in for decades. As such, team Lynnvander is donating 5% of this Kickstarter (post fees) to GOSH!
Having a legacy doesn't mean having to grow up! Travel to Neverland with Peter Pan and his allies in the third epic installment in the Legacy series! Neverland's Legacy is set in the same universe as Albion's Legacy and Sherwood's Legacy but is a totally stand-alone game that doesn't require the other Legacy games to play.
In this strategic, dice-rolling skirmish game, you help either Peter Pan and his allies or Captain Hook and his crew to assault their rivals on Hook's pirate ship or in the lost boys' camp respectively. At the start of the game, you'll choose which faction to play as and then set up the appropriate location to attack. Whether you're playing as Peter and his allies or Hook and his crew, you'll then assault your foes' base of operations, drawing cards to search every nook and cranny for lost boys, fairies, and pirate treasure, while positioning yourselves around the board to bypass or fight off your enemies. As your foes cause you to fall into despair, you are forced to roll Stones of Chance instead of choosing your actions, making it more difficult to take optimal turns.
As Peter and his allies, the game is won when you rescue all of the lost boys aboard Hook's ship. As Captain Hook and his crew, the game is won when you capture all of the lost boys hiding in their camp. In either case, the game is lost when your foes defeat enough of your characters! Neverland's Legacy is an immersive, highly thematic game that carries on the Legacy series's focus on super challenging co-op games.

What is the Legacy Series?
When Albion's Legacy was first created we wanted to do more than just one epic legend, so we decided to commit to a series of epic legends throughout time and culture that could culminate together to bring you the ultimate fantasy experience.
Neverland's Legacy is the 3rd Legacy game of 9. Below are a few titles you can expect to see in the coming 2016 and 2017 Lynnvander/Jasco release year. We'll take you from Feudal Japan all the way to the depths of Atlantis, whether riding a Chandelier as a Musketeer or sizing a French Castle as Joan of Arc, there will be something for everyone.
Each Kickstarter will focus on the newest family member to the Legacy series, however, we will always open up exclusive content for previous Legacy games. This content will only be available through Kickstarter. Below are our first two Legacy games.
Albion's Legacy - Our first Legacy game!
Albion's Legacy is a a fully cooperative modular-adventure game for 1-4 players (expandable to 6). In Albion's Legacy, King Arthur and his allies explore Albion in search of specific Realms, while trying to collect enough Quest Coins to win the game! As the Realms are explored, various Enemies will stand in the way, and must be Challenged by rolling the Stones of Chance! Meanwhile, Despair threatens the land! If the Flames of Hope are extinguished, or all Virtue is lost, the kingdom falls! It's up to you to triumph against overwhelming odds!

A fully cooperative, tower defense style board game with a Robyn Hood theme. The successor to the Arthurian themed Albion's Legacy game.
Welcome to Sherwood forest. Take up arms with the best of the Merry men and women! Let's show the Sheriff he can't push us around anymore! Steal from the rich and give to the poor as Robyn and his allies defend Sherwood forest in this fully cooperative, tower-defense game.

Lynnvander Studios is a Southern Ontario based game design company focusing on the creation of board games from concept to deliverable files. Our work for major publishers in the industry includes the design of Buffy the Vampire Slayer: the Board Game, and Galaxy Quest: the Board Game.
We use Kickstarter because we love the community that's formed around our past campaigns and because, with your help, we can make games that we never would have been able to manufacture on our own, and we can make games that are bigger and better than would have been possible without your support. With that in mind, we've got an aggressive Kickstarter lineup planned for the coming year so get ready for a whole lot of new games!
The Legacy line is exclusively published and distributed through our amazing partners at Jasco Games.
Many companies use Kickstarter as a sort of preorder system for moving finished products - that’s not us. We’re a small team of 6 game designers, most of which are part time. We’d like for most of our team to be full time but we’re still building up to that and making our place in the industry. We’ve been very lucky to build relationships with other companies that have allowed us to work on big licensed properties but our original properties are still a passion for us. That’s why we’re forging ahead with our line of Legacy games. With your support, we were able to manufacture Albion’s Legacy, send it out to tons of backers, and bring it to retail. You’ve also allowed us to create Sherwood’s Legacy and Deep 5 which are in manufacturing now.
As you may know, we were appalled by the production issues and poor quality of the 1st edition of Albion’s Legacy and, with your support, we were able to reprint Albion’s Legacy through a new manufacturer, and send an improved copy of the game to all of our original backers for free. Despite tons of amazing backers helping to cover the costs of the 2nd edition of Albion’s Legacy through our micro-kickstarter, this created a huge financial expense for us that we’re still recovering from as a company. That’s a very real reason why Kickstarter is still crucial for us to create new games. Plus, we love bringing the Legacy series to Kickstarter, and interacting with all of you along the way. With your help, we're going to make Neverland's Legacy way more awesome than we could have on our own.
Shipping will be charged after the campaign, based on the actual cost to ship your pledge reward to your location. We will not charge any handling fees above the actual cost to ship your game.
Through our strategic partnerships, we have arranged fulfillment options in multiple countries, significantly reducing your shipping costs. We will be shipping from locations in the United States, Canada, and the UK, saving you the cost of customs and VAT fees.
Please Note* Shipping to Military bases can be costly. Message us for details.
Since Albion's Legacy has already been funded and fulfilled once, your copy will ship within 2-4 weeks of this campaign ending. You'll have the option to hold your game and wait for Neverland's OR ship it immediately. Sherwood's Legacy is still in manufacturing stages and is set to ship by the end of the summer. You may also elect to ship Sherwood's sooner or not.
All mini's and bonus content will released at the same time as Neverland's Legacy with exception to GripMats which in the case of Albion's and Sherwood's, may ship immediately.
Please Note* We open to any shipping options you can work out with us. We want to get these products in your hands as quickly and least expensive as possible. Contact us with any inquiry and we'll respond asap.
Risks and challenges
We've come a long way and have learned a lot about Kickstarter and game manufacturing in general but challenges still come up.
Our first game, Albion's Legacy, was a good game but very poorly manufactured. In response to the poor quality of our first product, we've reprinted the game and given the reprint to our original backers for free. While this commitment to quality is important to us, it's caused significant delays and pushed fulfillment of our other games back. With a better understanding of the industry, and the help of a great manufacturer, Deep 5, and Sherwood's Legacy are well on their way to being fulfilled. With nothing left for us to do but wait for manufacturing to be concluded, and ship out the remaining games, it's time for our team to get back to what we're best at: making new games.
We're confident that this campaign will be a smooth process but delays can happen. Sometimes the art takes longer to complete than we'd expected. Others, shipping or customs hit us with surprise delays. Whatever happens, we'll communicate with you honestly and openly and do everything that we can to provide you with a high quality game.
Risks of workload, shipping, customs, art delays etc. But promises on making this game a reality.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
