About

CQW Volume II: It's back and bigger and better than ever!

It all started with wanting a good old-fashioned dungeon crawl, but in an easy to play board game that had flexibility in exploration and was challenging. I had a multitude of minis, so did not need to spend extra money on the available board games that included all of those minis and pieces to the point of the game costing hundreds of dollars and bloated rules to where picking up a casual game with friends was nearly impossible. Why was there not a role-playing board game with easy to understand rules, super quick to set up and unlimited flexibility to make my own campaigns, use my own minis and even print the material, board, terrain and furniture as needed?

Welcome to Cavern Quest Warriors – the RPG board game for 2-7 players where you choose one of six characters with unique abilities on a quest in search of adventure and treasure. Choose a Warrior/Fighter, Barbarian/Berserker, Cleric/Monk, Rogue/Thief, Wizard/Magic-User or an Archer/Ranger. All games pieces are designed to be printed on either paper or simple card stock (e.g. 110 lb. index) – just print what you need along with the basic rules, special cards and campaign module that includes the floor plan, creature stat panel, individual room/floor tiles and use your own minis to embark on a quest with your friends. The Cavern Master will guide the play for maximum challenge for the characters along with movement and battle for all creatures, keeping it enjoyable for everyone. Each campaign module gives the Cavern Master complete instructions on how to guide the players through each room and what creatures and events they will encounter. While this concept is not entirely new, the method and delivery concept are. By providing all documents electronically, you save money by printing yourself (color or b/w) - no need to spend hundreds of dollars to get what ends up being an enormous board game with hours and hours of game play.

The basic rules are quick and easy to learn, yet always challenging and allow for different character expansion per class in all abilities through experience gained. The magic system is unique to ensure a varied and changing set of magic skills as wizards progress. New players can jump in at any time, in any campaign and at any level with our set skill system for characters – no need to start at the bottom! Also, with our rule set and all CQW room tiles ready to be done dual-sided makes it easy to design your own campaigns! 

Our Cavern Quest Warriors Vol II Kickstarter will include the following in the Basic pledge: 

  • Basic rule book
  • Magic/potion/spell/item/weapon cards
  • Card stock (for print & assembly) and STL files (for 3D printing) for all furniture: Bookshelves, single and double doors, treasure chests, chairs, benches, tables, weapon racks and altars.
  • Character sheets - record your character stats and treasure
  • Campaign module booklet with story and all details of the campaign; 3 campaign modules – Chateau de Guillant-levels 1-3, Halls of Valhalla-levels 2-5, The Giant Tomb-levels 4-7. Each campaign module includes: 
  • Detailed individual floor tiles with 1” grid (over 125 different room tiles)
  • Creature panel with all creature stats and abilities for easy reference
  • Campaign specific cards (weapons, treasure, etc.)
  • Campaign token and ruler sheet
  • Applicable trap markers
  • 3 level floor plan per module (9 total)

Stretch goals will include more modules and Reaper© Miniatures (Bones) available for purchase at deep discounts (just in case your collection needs a boost!), and a host of other goodies available for free on the General pledge and above or as add-ons. 

Some campaign modules will include a game-within-the-game for a quick foray that can be played entirely on its own at any time. The Giant Tomb pits the players against each other where they control a ferocious Minotaur and try to stop the other players from escaping the catacombs while their own character tries to elude capture and be the first to escape. The Battle for Westerbrooke includes a battlefield game where the group must survive waves of increasingly difficult undead and creatures while strategically planning on the best time to call out their limited reinforcements.

Risks and challenges

Due to small components, not recommended for children under 3. All basic components of the game have already been developed and have been extensively play tested. Only minor tweaks and QA are required, as well as finalizing some campaign modules. Some campaign modules may be substituted for another campaign of equal value. A basic knowledge of electronic files and file printing (color preferable) and access to the necessary equipment may be required, depending on pledge chosen. STL files will require a suitable 3D printer for use. Minor delays may be encountered due to data loss or other unforeseen events. Physical items to be delivered will be ordered and sent in bulk, with an additional shipping charge to be paid at the time of pledge or with the Pledge Manager. The actual delivery method of electronic files and physical items is still to be determined. All foreign customers are responsible for any additional fees/taxes due.
