DICE SETS UNLOCKED! Choose Your Faction!
The Underworld is on the verge of war: Choose your faction!
The drow of Holoth have made their move, striking at the dwarven trading caravans from Embla, taking possession of the cargo, killing the guards, and enslaving the rest. The Underworld is on the verge of war and while some begin to take sides to survive, others watch cautiously from the shadows, waiting for opportunity to come to them.
FACTIONS OF THE UNDERWORLD
The denizens of the Underworld are taking sides and divided up into three factions.
The drow and the vidre have forged an alliance which threatens to upset the delicate balance of power in the Underworld. Raiding and enslaving other races is a way of life for the drow, with the power of the Vidrefacte artifact, nothing can stand in their way. Drow have access to vast resources and powerful soul-draining magic which they use to crush their enemies.
The dwarves and svirfneblin, being constant targets of the drow raids, join forces in a loose rebellion that lacks solid leadership. Luckily, the rebels have stockpiles of hidden resources on hand which they can use to build powerful defenses and/or hire help from others. Perhaps allies can be found to assist in overthrowing the drow of Holoth!
The oddities of the Underworld such as the ahool, funglets, and vestraadi seek protection from the threat of major conflict. They wait for the right opportunity to emerge from the depths, claim some fragment of power, then skitter back to the shadows. Outsiders have unique abilities which allow them to blend in with their surroundings and strike quickly and tactfully. They also know many secrets of the Underworld such as how to move through areas inaccessible or inhospitable to most.
HOW TO JOIN A FACTION
To join a faction, decide which group speaks to you the most. Right-click and SAVE AS one of the images at the bottom of this update, then make this your profile picture here on Kickstarter. If you wish to gain more of an advantage over your enemies you may also add this profile picture to your social media accounts like Twitter & Facebook.
After you have chosen a faction please introduce yourself in the comments section of the Kickstarter (not the update mind you, but the main comments) so we can congratulate you and welcome you to the Underworld War.
If you wish to be considered for a Faction Leader please say so (in the main comments section) and explain why you think you'd be good at leading your troops in the Underworld War. Based on prior participation in the Kickstarter and your answer, we will choose ONLY ONE leader from each faction and grant a special badge and benefits. Leaders will communicate with their troops to help solve riddles or problems, explore the Underworld, and defeat their enemies. When the need arises, you will also defend yourself or perhaps attack one of the other factions. All of this will be coordinated through the faction leaders.
Underworld Faction Dice Sets
At 500 Backers you've unlocked Faction Dice Sets which are add-ons for $10 per set. Each set starts with three (3) limited-edition, custom dice from Chessex with your faction badge engraved upon them. You can buy just your faction or all the factions at $10 per set, whatever you'd like.
As your faction progresses in the Underworld War you'll increase the overall dice which come in your faction's set. No one will be left out because anyone is welcome to add any of the listed dice sets by increasing their pledge level $10 per set desired. Dice sets will max out at ten (10) dice but you'll have to work hard to dominate in the Underworld to build up a set this large.
