The Ride of the Valkyries - Face your Nemesis - Meet Shakiko and Genryu!
Fifth day of our campaign, and Freya be blessed, we unlocked the NORTHWIND TREASURES and the VALKYRIES! I will tell you more about how Gremlin Project upgraded the gameplay of items and treasures in a future update, as this one is going to be very long already!
First, let's look at the new enemy we met...
Mighty warriors with supernatural powers, Valkyrie ride together with the armies of Wotan in battle. Their mastery of the spear, their flight prowess, and their abiility to bring back from the dead their companions make Valkyiries a fearful opponent.
This stretch goal adds 4 Valkyries - 2 Blue ones and 2 Green Ones. Valkyries are an ACT II enemy, like the Warg Packs and the Werebeast we unlocked before.
It's truly a stunning model, and we suggest you give it a good look on Sketchfab...
Yesterday night we also revealed one of the new features of Ancient Chronicles - the Heroes' Nemesis, our 320K stretch goal...
There is no light without shadows, and each coin has two sides...
An ancient legend narrates that a resurrection spell does more than just recalling a Hero back to life. The spell reshapes the Heroes' soul, weakened but purified, and give it a new body. But. sometimes, the darkest thoughts and fears of the Heroes, the evil recesses of his or her soul, are also called back from the spirit realm, also shaped into a new body... and a Hero's Nemesis is created. A being of pure evil, with the destruction of the Hero as its only purpose.
A Nemesis is an extraordinary opponent, with skills and powers to match an immortal Hero. Are you ready to face the ultimate challenge - your dark side?
Including a Nemesis in your campaign is very straightforward. When you feel ready to face them, you can do so in any Quest (including quests from the Immortal Soul campaign). Just replace one (or more) of the Shadow tokens with the special Nemesis tokens, and sooner or later you're going to face your evil twin... and your destiny!
Today, we also have another big announcement! Our new add-on, the first Hero Pack of this campaign, in a special, extended format!
To give you maximum freedom of choice, this hero can be played as either a female (Shakiko) or male (Genryu) character. You can play both Shakiko and Genryu as either a White or Black Monk.
Shakiko and Genryu are powerful fighters, who dominate the battlefield using the power of their Chi. Transmigration, spiritual powers, martial arts and special attacks will offer you a completely new combat experience.
Note: This Hero Pack is also compatible with the Immortal Souls campaign
The Genryu sculpt is currently in progress, sculpted by Ludus Magnus Studio.
You can include optional add-ons such as this Special Hero Pack using the "Manage your pledge" button appearing on the project page. You keep the same pledge selected - but you simply designate a higher dollar amount. So, if you want to add $17 for this Special Hero Pack to your $120 pledge, simply keep the same reward level, but make your pledge $137.
When the Kickstarter is over, you will have an opportunity to designate how to use your pledge in our Pledge Manager (to be activated on ks.aresgames.eu a few weeks after the campaign ends). It is not mandatory that you increase your pledge now. It will still be possible to include add-ons using the Pledge Manager after the end of the campaign. However, each dollar pledged now will help the project to achieve more goals!
See you on the Comments page, and thanks for your LEGENDARY support. If you like what we're doing here, help us to spread the word!
