Daughters of Twilight™ is the first expansion for The WitchBorn: Enter Perdition™. Get everything you need to lead your courageous Dark Elves into the blinding light of The WitchBorn® ravaged world above.

Play Where Miniatures Meet Roleplaying
The WitchBorn: Enter Perdition
is the immersive campaign-based miniature skirmish game for 2-6 players. Each player creates a war clan of adventurers to explore the dangerous world of Perdition. Portray your warriors with detailed 28mm Reaper® Bones miniatures. Play campaign-style, where your warriors continually develop, find treasures, and level up between games—If they survive the WitchBorn of course.

Enjoy Ever-Changing Tales
Instead of just a skirmish with friends every time, The Witchborn: Enter Perdition is different. Recover lost cargo in the WitchBorn infested plains, survive the bitter Will-o-Wisp of the Wandering Forest, or enter the derelict cathedral turned tavern, known as “The Pit.”  Your warriors’ discoveries, wounds, and horrible fumbles are handled by apps for Android or iOS which tell a unique story every time you play. There’s no need for anyone to sit out or be a Game Master.  

For more on The Witchborn: Enter Perdition check out our previous Kickstarter. See why reviewer Robert Oren picked Enter Perdition as a Top 10 Game for 2017.


Meet the Daughters

A Hidden Realm lays far beneath tortured Perdition, a honeycomb of twisting tunnels and deep caverns. For centuries, outcast Dark Elves toiled here without the touch of the sun.

A spellcasting Morrigan leads your warriors. Then choose from stealthy Nightcloaks, deadly Vindicators, dual-bladed Deathcriers, meek Waywardens, and horrifying Soulweavers. Each Dark Elf starts with an unknown skill—until you create your war clan. And if you’re fortunate, some of your warriors may be Dark Fae like the feasting Black Annis, the nightmarish Bodach, slimy Gobelyn, enchanting Merrow, or one of many other possibilities.

Daughters of Twilight expansion sets feature 8 Reaper® Bones miniatures. Each comes with a round base for you to assemble and paint in your own distinctive style. Many of the exclusive figures we’ve selected aren’t available anywhere yet—you’ll be among the first to own them. The awesome figures inset here are from a rendering and will replace a few of the figures depicted.

Get Your Complete Guide to the Dark Elves
Learn their shrouded history and the secrets of female-dominated enclaves. Recruit exotic Dark Fae like the carrion-eating Boggart, mimicking Fetch, or sinister Sluagh. Duel with rapiers to dispatch dangerous foes, wield long-lost eldritch magick, and master the forgotten art of shaping living weapons and armor. Pierce armor with the Deathly Bodkin. Fire lethal hand crossbows. Lend your Dark Elves prestige with Signature Armor designed just for them. And train the Cait Sidhe and giant orb-weaver to fight alongside your warriors. 

Guides also come with extras. Get the die-cut templates you’ll need as your Dark Elves adapt to harsh sunlight and cast unique magick.

A “Dark Web” PDF roster is easy to customize. It tracks your warriors’ levels, skills, armor, weapons, poisons, loot, treasures, and Adamant—the glowing but unbreakable substance only your Artificer knows how to craft.

Roll with “Deep Purple” Dice
Sets come with three attack dice featuring The WitchBorn’s hit location system. A critical skewers a victim while an oops means your warrior fails miserably—sometimes with comical results. Add two D6 for rolling feats and injury outcomes and your Dark Elves will be styling.

We Got Brom!
Acclaimed fantasy illustrator, Brom, painted the gorgeous wraparound cover Web of Charms. Pledge early to snare an autographed copy before they’re gone!  

Unlock Stretch Goals!

Your pledge for Daughters of Twilight unlocks new figures, condition markers, and deals for every stretch goal we achieve. Backers are getting the Soulweaver, Shade, and Cailleach figures FREE. And for exceeding our funding goal of $12,500, backers will receive an advance PDF copy of the Daughters of Twilight guide. And we’ll keep revealing more goodies after every goal we pass!

Most Dark Elves begin your campaign with unique magick or skills but a few are Dark Fae possessed of strange and exotic capabilities. Represent your Dark Fae with this $25 collection or add the individual figures you need.

  • The Sluagh is a flying Shade who drains life energy from foes
  • Your murderous Redcap must stain his foul hat with the blood of enemies to gain anima
  • The Black Annis appears to be an old Crone but transforms into a horrifying flesh-eater who takes grisly trophies
  • The seductive Merrow lures victims with a Siren song while her hideous male counterpart is a brute in combat
  • Train an Orb-Weaver to fight alongside your Dark Elves and web victims
  • Repugnant Gobelyns commonly serve Dark Elves and as surface-dwellers are not sunblind so are quite adept with javelins and hand crossbows
  • Hobgobelyns command legions of Gobelyns and are skilled Bladesingers in melee
  • Carrion-eating Boggarts are nearly invisible but reek of decay
  • The Cait Sidhe or “Faerie Cat” battles alongside your worthiest Dark Elves
  • The Bodach is the bogeyman of dreams, massive and powerful, but also able to disguise itself as a shadow

Turn chits. Get 96 chits in 8 colors plus a black cup for Enter Perdition’s unique turn system.

Pledge Manager and Shipping

You will be contacted by our pledge manager after this Kickstarter ends. We’ll verify your email, address, and have a checklist for you to allocate pledge dollars for the extras you choose. Shipping costs will be collected via credit card or PayPal based on weight of your package, extras, and your address (to be fairest for all backers).

If you buy The WitchBorn: Enter Perdition or other existing products, you will have two shipping options. You can receive everything at once (the most affordable option). Or you can receive existing product as early as July with a second mailing next Spring once Daughters of Twilight is produced.

Current estimates say most US orders for Daughters of Twilight will ship for $12-20. Obviously, orders with add-ons could be more. International backers are likely to incur increased shipping costs. In the past, we’ve had backers in other countries pool their orders which saves a lot of money. Size of the order and weight don’t affect cost as much as that initial charge.

We’ve worked out a deal with GamesQuest to fulfill our European orders. This means we can consolidate all the orders, ship to one location, and prepay customs charges. You’ll get your packages shipped at a rate folks in the states are paying.

We will do our best to make shipping timely and economical with no additional handling fees.

We cannot ship to PO Boxes because there is too great a risk of the package bouncing back to us.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

By pledging to this Kickstarter, you acknowledge the final look, materials, and content of the rewards may differ from the prototypes shown. The publisher reserves the right to substitute a figure if a newer one becomes available and the new figure is of at least equal cost (a greater cost will not be passed on to you). For example, Reaper had their successful Bones 4 Kickstarter; many of the new Dark Elf miniatures may be substituted for some of these figures.

You agree that our responsibility to you is to ship your order as entered into our pledge manager.

REFUND POLICY

If a specific component cannot be delivered AT ALL, we will refund the pledge amount of that component.

Risks and challenges

This is our third Kickstarter project and during the previous one, we overcame numerous unexpected obstacles to timing: production delays, printing delays, shipping delays, and customs delays. We had ’em all!

Supplying valid email and mailing addresses is essential for communication and updates throughout the project. We promise a quick reply to questions (please do not try to contact our suppliers directly).

Production will begin in June. With components coming from at least two overseas suppliers, it will take many months to assemble all necessary pieces and ship. Items will ship at the soonest possible date. International shipping is likely to take longer than domestic.

The last two successful Kickstarters makes us comfortable we can succeed in this challenge.
