About

YOU asked for it! DUCKQUEST FANTASY ROLEPLAY. This is the cover, with gratitude to Jon Hodgeson the illustrator and Rom Brown (Whippersnapper Artworkz) for the logo design and layout. What will be beyond the cover? As much as we can pack into it!

It's Time for Epic Adventure!

Time to explore Duckwyrld... where four valiant Heroes of Quackmoor have been summoned by Mandrake, founder of the Guild of Delvers, to do battle with the nefarious Mordux and his evil minions. Seated upon the legendary Throne of Bones, the power of the Duck Lord grows with each passing night. You must boldly descend into the darkest dungeons of Castle Greyduck, defeat the Champions of Chaos and end the wicked rule of Mordux!

Ah, Stretch Goals, it wouldn't be a Kickstarter without them!

As the campaign develops, expect to see new creations appear here... I can't wait to see what we come up with!

In Memory of Rick Loomis

In January 2017 I sculpted a miniature for Rick Loomis. We never did get around to creating the whole Tunnels and Trolls miniatures box set but his gentle manner, advice and encouragement left a lasting impression on me.  I would like to offer Buffalorick to all miniature pledge backers as a special gift in memory of Rick.

Rick Loomis (August 24, 1946 – August 23, 2019). *FREE to all miniature pledge backers.
Sculpted by Darcy Perry. Casting by Chris Nicholls.

Risks and challenges

MANUFACTURE & SHIPPING
The original sculpted miniatures have been cast into metal masters and are now awaiting production moulds. The larger resin pieces have also been cast and are ready for production. Chris Nicholls from Macrocosm will handle the manufacture and shipping for worldwide fulfillment of each baker pledge and the estimated shipping date is within 3 months of funding this Kickstarter campaign.

BREXIT
Macrocosm are based in the UK, which may leave the EU at the end of October. There is a lot of information about this online but nobody really knows what will happen if it does. We are planning to ship in October but if any issues arise, we will let you know and do our best to keep our backers happy.

OUR PROMISE
Any issues will be dealt with as quickly as possible in a professional manner and we will keep you informed along the way.
