In the shadows of London, terrors stir. Powerful overlords conspire against one another, amassing hordes of monsters to do their bidding. Only one will claim the night and all within it as their prize.
Terrors of London is a competitive deck-builder with a Victorian horror theme. Each player will assume the role of an Overlord, each with a unique ability and two unique influence cards. Throughout the game players will add monsters from four different factions (Beasts, Mortals, Spirits, and Undead) to their deck, all of which can form hordes for powerful combos. Players will also procure marvelous relics, which they may immediately use for their unique abilities. The first player to reduce their opponent's life to zero wins the game and claims the night.
For more detailed information on how to play Terrors of London, please peruse our rules draft here and let us know if you have any questions!
The Victorian Noble pledge includes 4 new Overlords, all of which that use the terror token mechanism. This allows the Overlords to accumulate power for variable effects. It also features more monsters, relics, and starting cards to allow players to play up 2-4 players.
Terrors of London will be available in English, French, and German. You will select the desired language variant after the campaign in the pledge manager.
All of the unlocked stretch goal content will accumulate into an expansion called Servants Of The Black Gate that will be free to backers at the Victorian Noble level. The Servants of the Black Gate expansion will be populated with additional hideous monsters and more from the streets of London.
Backers can use the "Manage Pledge" button to add the specified amount from each add-on to their current pledge. Add-ons will be managed through the pledge manager CrowdOx at the end of the campaign. A link will be sent out to all backers who've pledged at least $1. From this link, backers will be able to edit their pledge and choose which add-ons they'd like. Backers can always increase their pledge through CrowdOx to get additional items.
See Servants of the Black Gate above to see all goals unlocked so far.

Risks and challenges
While Terrors of London is our 1st Kickstarter project on Kolossal Mikro, it is the 7th from Kolossal Games, and our team has years of experience with publishing games. We have an impeccable track record of successfully delivering previous Kickstarter projects to thousands of supporters in a timely fashion--if not sooner. Our commitment to building a strong, supportive community around Kolossal Games will enable us to also deliver this project on time and with the highest quality possible. That said, there are always complexities and considerations in a project of this scope that may cause delays. There are many steps in the process of manufacturing and fulfilling a game, many of which involve partnerships. Through careful and thorough planning, common mistakes can be avoided. However, possible delays can occur from circumstances beyond our immediate control. If such an issue is encountered, our team will adapt and no corners will be cut to course correct as needed. Our greatest obstacle is simply the funding capital to manufacture such an ambitious product of the highest quality capable.
