The Age of Legends
Having said that, time to reveal that once we will fully unlock "The Last Knight" campaign (and it's quite close!), we will work towards a whole new campaign, "The Age of Legends" with the totally new team, additional 30-40 hours of Gameplay and entire stand-alone new story to discover!
Lets get some basic idea about it!
This third Tainted Grail campaign completes the full circle and takes you back 1000 years, to the legendary age of conquest when humans first set foot on Avalon!
Your heroes were aboard one of the first ships to drop anchor at the shores of the island – back then almost entirely covered in Wyrdness and ruled by the Fore-dwellers.
In the very first Chapter of this Campaign, they are the sole survivors of a catastrophic military expedition that tried to enlarge the human holdings with the help of archdruid Merlin. Cut off far from human settlements, they make a startling discovery that can shift the balance of powers.
Some further highlights of this adventure (without spoilers ;) ):
- Complete the full circle. Go back 1000 years before the events of "The Last Knight", to the legendary age of conquest!
- Be one of the first humans to set foot on Avalon.
- Traverse the island covered in Wyrdness and ruled by the Fore-dwellers at the height of their power.
- Unlock the final mysteries of their eternal empire.
- Stand side by side with the original knights of the round table and see how much truth there is to their legends.
- Find out how Guardian Menhirs came to be. Speak with the Fore-dwellers. Go insane. See how the time twists upon itself and how future events can shape the past.Learn more about the heritage of your characters from previous campaigns.
- Discover the truth behind myths and places from previous campaigns.
After this campaign, once you will decide to re-play 1st campaign you will have much deeper understanding of some of the stories! This will add A LOT to overall replayability with 1-st play through estimated for 90-120 hours across 3 campaigns!
Krzysztof Piskorski planned a lot of amazing twists and surprising moments that you will encounter during this whole new adventure!
This expansion will bring a different tone and theme. If you followed all the art we’ve posted for this game, you might have probably noticed that in the Fall of Avalon the island is in a state of unnaturally prolonged autumn, while the Last Knight takes you into a cold and unforgiving post-apocalyptic winter.
With the Age of Legends, you will see the lands of Avalon in the middle of a bright summer – blooming meadows and lush plains sharply contrasting with the walls of Wyrdness.
The design of most enemies also changes – this includes various menacing Fore-dweller units (such as the Reclaimer from the Monsters of Avalon pack) and many beasts of legend that are already extinct by the time Fall of Avalon comes (remember this enormous, sacred skull to the north of Cuanach?).
Now, we will need your help to unlock this campaign - we are after first 24 hours rush and now campaign will naturally slow down. This is the time where we can spread the word and reach to people that did not heard about Tainted Grail but might enjoy this kind of Adventure!
BUT! We will also CREATE this expansion with you guys, from the team of brand new heroes to cover art and some of the encounters!
Community votes starting NOW
This new story campaign will require four new Travelers! And just like during the Nemesis Kickstarter, we will let our community decide what heroes (or heroines) will take part in the events.
Our concept artists are ready to start flooding you with concept drawings to vote on. But first, we need to hear what types of characters would you love to see in the first place!
Let us know in the comments what characters you’d like to see in the “Age of Legends”. We are open to all of your ideas with the exception of "original" heroes from the Arthurian stories - they story is already drafted and you as a team will be witnessing it and taking part in it.
Show us what you got! We are really excited to hear your ideas!
And as a minor spoiler of next SG to come... ;)
