About


New Pledge Levels – All pieces printed!

Our new Warrior Pledge Levels will provide all material color printed as well as the electronic files. Rulebook and modules will be spiral bound and the cardstock pieces will be supplied flat – all you will need to do is cut out the cards, floor tiles and other required pieces and you’re ready to start your adventure.

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 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 and enjoyment 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 - no need to spend hundreds of dollars to get what ends up being an enormous board game.

The basic rules are quick and easy to learn, yet always challenging and allow for character expansion 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 and at any level, with our set skill system for characters – no need to start at the bottom!

Our Cavern Quest Warriors Kickstarter will include the following in the basic pledge: 

  • Basic rule book
  • Magic/potion/spell/item/weapon cards
  • Character sheets 
  • 1 campaign module – Chateau de Guillant-levels 1-3. Each campaign module includes: 
  • Campaign module booklet with story and all details of the campaign
  • Detailed individual floor tiles with 1” grid
  • 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

Stretch goals will include more modules, card stock furniture, card stock terrain unique to the modules, 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 an add-ons.  In addition to the above, we have in the works additional bases, dice, starting party miniatures and so much more. 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.

Check out the first of our video series on basic game play and how characters explore and battle the foes they find within.

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. A basic knowledge of electronic files and file printing (color preferable) and access to the necessary equipment is required. 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.
