Goblins and... almost funded!

Posted by Gato Salvaje (Creator)

The Goblins are cute, magical creatures intrinsically tied to nature. They wear outfits and masks made of bark, sticks, and leather.

Sometimes people don’t realize that they are speaking to a goblin- at first glance, they often look like children wearing costumes and playing pretend.

Adult goblins still move like children- they often run, jump, or skip instead of walking like proper human adults. Their high pitch voices and playful nature also contribute to this common misconception.

They are pranksters, and will do whatever they can in order to give themselves and their friends a good laugh… sometimes without realizing the harm they can cause. If they do hurt someone, they’ll feel bad about it. But empathetic foresight is uh… not their strong suit.

Despite this, goblins are clever and relatively mature. They are capable rogues and explorers, and they are brilliant at lightening the mood when necessary. Basically, they’re good people to have around in any adventuring party.

The largest population of goblins exists in the beautiful coastal city of Aunes, so many of them are used to sunlight, the ocean, and a calm lifestyle. The possibility of joining an adventure that could take them out of their comfort zone and allow them to experience new, fun places with totally different surroundings would be of great interest to many goblins.

Now that you know about this new race, we’ll like to give you a little present: a goblin companion will be include in the game for free!

So you now might be asking… What’s a companion? Well…

Companions are important characters that can join your party, and that you can have close relations with. They’ll provide you with more hours of gameplay, since they have their own character quests (these will have a similar format to Mass Effect’s loyalty missions). If you have a close relationship with them, you will get further quests and they’ll become an important part of your gameplay experience. And this goblin is the very first companion we are adding to the game!

Also, quick reminder that you can get The Waylanders Board Game as an add-on! Getting this add-on will also provide you with a goblin miniature for the Board Game!

This goblin miniature is exclusive and you can only get it through this Kickstarter campaign.

To acquire the Board Game you must add $75 to your pledge. How to do that? Follow this example:

Josh selected the $20 early bird (congrats, you'll get the game at a great price!). But he wants to get the board game. He needs to manage his pledge and add $75. So, he needs to pledge $95. Then, when we finish the campaign, we'll contact all of you to know which add ons you selected.


90% reached!! We are almost funded! And we would like to ask you for help to get visibility on Twitter:

      @Justin: Here is the link to the campaign page for "The Waylanders" boardgame. If you want to know more about the expected miniature quality you should check out their previous game "Skull Tales", the recent updates there showed some miniatures that came from the factory.

      I really hope Goblins are called "Trasnos" in the galician translation xD

      I'm already a board game backer (I came to this Kickstarter through their link even), will there be some option for backers of both separately to get these miniatures?

      So. Dang. Cute!! I love them, and am super happy that stretch goal got unlocked! Absolutely going to run with a goblin in my party mmhmm mmhmm.

      Certainly sounds like a win-win no question :)
      Do you happen to have that link handy? It'd be a great way to easily check out the info you mentioned, maybe even post it in the general comments so anyone else who wants to take a peek has quick access to it ^.^

      @Justin: I had already backed "The Waylanders" boardgame prior to joining the videogame campaign. I'm pretty sure Eclipse Editorial (the creators of the boardgame) will deliever a wonderful game. I already own their boardgame "Ratland" and it is a fantastic and fun game. I would recommend (if you haven't already) to check out the already finished KS from the boardgame and especially the updates since they also gave out a lot of free stuff and even more information for the Waylanders universe. I'm pretty sure you won't regret this and the best thing is, you can play the boardgame and familiarize yourself with the world and characters, while waiting for the videogame, a win-win situation ;-)

      I can guarantee the macOs build for sure, we'll study the Linux version in the future and we'll totally try to do it as well.

      The (multi-)platform support is unclear: any chance for Linux & macOS builds?

      The board game add-on was too good for me to pass up, had to snag a copy :)
