Multiplayer Dungeon adventure and quest to slay the Red Dragon! 1-6 players

About this project

The Red Dragon’s Lair, the fantasy adventure where you become a Magician, Rogue, Warrior or Paladin on a quest to slay an evil red dragon. You control the actions of a daring adventurer finding the way through a dungeon filled with undead monsters, elementals and treacherous traps. In the mysterious creepy corridors of the dungeon your quest continues against the evil forces that oppose you. Your daring efforts to reach the Red Dragon’s Lair are where your adventure begins and Your Quest Awaits!

The evil Red Dragon lives deep within a dungeon filled with undead monsters and elementals. Your goal is to clear the dungeon of evil and slay the Red Dragon. Together you and the other players join together looting monsters and plundering the dungeon in search of magical items and weapons!

This game is a character driven game, which uses both cards and dice to deal with the many obstacles within the dungeon and the Red Dragon’s Lair. Players choose a character deck at the beginning of the game then equip their special items and weapons. Each character is unique and uses different styles of play. The crafty Rogue hides in the shadows firing arrows from a distance. The Paladin engages the monsters head-on with shield and sword. The Warrior jumps in the fray without regard for himself slaying monsters near and far. And the Magician uses powerful magic to protect the others and destroy monsters! The awesome forces that oppose you can prove to be more than a match and adventurers will die! Mwahahahaha!

I have always loved adventuring and battling monsters. Throughout my life I have played many amazing games both video and table top; D&D, Dragon’s Lair, Ultima Online, Gauntlet Legends, WOW, Skyrim, H.A.C.K. , and Zogar’s Gaze. The Red Dragon’s Lair is filled with “Easter eggs” drawn from that nostalgia. It is built around the classic concept of building a character, and then exploring a dungeon with no means of escape until every threat has been vanquished. That is the foundation of The Red Dragon’s Lair, and each and every encounter will immerse you in that genre. You can customize the dungeon by adding or removing certain cards! This allows you to craft your own dungeon to challenge your friends and adjust for time constrains! Many of the stretch goals will add more cards for the dungeon allowing even more customization! 

I have a few Extra Add-ons to make your game even better, so please check them out below! :)

Risks and challenges

My Pledge to you the backer is to make a quality product and I understand the challenges of doing so. My goal is to stay engaged with both the manufacturers and you the backer to keep everyone informed. An informed backer is a happy backer.

If challenges do arise, I will hit them head on with awesome unwavering power and determination. Sometimes an issue can cause a delay, and while delays are typically avoided, producing the the best product is always my end goal. I will keep, open communication with my backers.

All fulfillment will done in house via the use of USPS. I have quotes from manufacturers in hand and all artwork outside of possible stretch rewards is done.

I also have experience with Kickstarter, having personal pledged to many successful campaigns! Additionally I have sought out the advice from successful game designers like Jason Glover of Zogar's Gaze! I feel that this knowledge gives me a good advantage if and when any issues arise.
