About

They say write the book you want to read, well I wanted a dice based dungeon delving game where you got to use Mana to grow your dungeon and it was in a cute mint tin, but there was none. So I made it!! I have been a big fan of Dungeon Core fiction for ages and thought that being able to physically build your own adventurer trap would be cool.

Little Living Dungeon is a mint tin game so it is small and portable, you start with your core room, and a small amount of Mana to grow your dungeon by adding extra rooms, at the end each day a adventurer will enter your dungeon to try and get to the core, and you will hopefully fight them off, as you grow your dungeon the adventurers get stronger and more of them. All combat is dice roll based.

Little Living Dungeon is meant to be a base game (and it has been play tested by other serious gamers)  I have plans for different rule set releases and maybe some expansion tins, but first I need to know if there is interest out there for this type of game.

now I am not going to go right into the rules of my easily  replicated currently not trade marked game, for what should hopefully be  obvious reasons! but included in this update is a simple play through  to give you a basic idea of what LLD is about.

you start with your core room and a set amount of mana, day 1 and level 1,

once you have placed the number of rooms you are able to purchase  with your starting mana pool you roll to decide the number and level of  adventurers that will enter your dungeon, obviously a weak dungeon with  not much loot will not attract much in the way of adventurers, so  generally you will face off against the noob as you start

your rooms have a number defining the number of dice they roll in  defense and also how much mana they return to you at the end of the day,  the heroes have a base level Armour and in higher levels a dice roll  for defense, there are a few other mechanics at play here that I will be  vague about, but essentially roll to kill hero, if you fail your room  has exhausted all its traps and used all of its mana and you flip the  card, any other hero that passes through will not have a dice rolled for  them.

you either kill all the hero's in your dungeon or they loot the core  and you die, the combat has been played many times to ensure a good  balance and there are a few ways a young core can protect itself. At the  end of combat you tally mana from active rooms, flip inactive rooms  back over, buy more rooms and start again. Your goal is to get to level  6, levels are dependent on the number of rooms

so there we have a very very basic walk through of how a game is played. Hopefully everyone is excited to play for themselves.


Inside each tin you will have 35 room cards, 1 core room card, 4 hero cards, 1 day/level counter, 4 meeple, 8 mana/day counters.

playing by yourself is fun, playing with someone else is even more fun!! Rule set for the 2 player game, this will be shared via google drive to download, it will not hold up the release date of the game

sometimes it is fun to play as the bad guy, and in this case the bad guy is the hero (criss cross!!) release of the rule set to play as the hero.   Rule set for the hero vs dungeon will be shared via google drive to download, it will not hold up the release date of the game


SHIPPING

this will be charged at the end, currently the project is based in Australia, so Aus and NZ customers, you will pay very little. For our EU backers a distribution node has been set up in Scotland, so shipping will be from Scotland to you, American customers a US node is also being established, so you will only be paying local shipping as well. There is money built into the pledge to allow me to subsidize shipping, so basically the more people who back the lower I can bring the postage.

Risks and challenges

The base rules have been play tested, and are sound and balanced, pricing has included those tricky little things like trade marking the name of the game etc. The only potential problem is that I am using small quantity printing services if the game takes off I will need to source a large scale printer, but the quote per print should actually drop if that happens, there will just be a extra week or two as I source a printer, BUT! I have built in wiggle room. Postage should not be a problem, its a mint tin game so it is teeny and light, so postage should not break the bank
