Hail Dwarves & Trolls!

Thank you very much for making Dwarves of Iron Peak a reality! I can't thank you enough for your patience on the...


Charge! Onward to the Surveys! Please fill these out so I know where to ship your stinky Troll feet, or else they will go to the bog with MurkMaw! I've sent out some test Surveys already, but if you have not gotten yours, you will soon. So keep an eye out for the Survey in your email or even in your Spam folder.

I am using BackerKit to send the Surveys. It has been rough setting them up, but the fine Humans on BackerKit support have helped immensely. You will not need to create a BackerKit account to answer your survey. The invitation email will contain a link to your personal survey. 

If you need to change your survey responses, add or remove add-ons, or update your shipping information, you can click on the link in your survey email again or request your survey link under "Lost your survey?" on our Dwarves of Iron Peak BackerKit project page

You can also just message me and give me your information, but answering your survey will help us get your rewards out to you quicker. Message me on Kickstarter or on the RocketSlug Games website and I will get back to you. 

If there are any issues, just back out of the survey and message me. 

Your patience has been awesome and as always your support is incredible!


Thank you!


You've found CRUD!

Posted by Jaidek

Hail Dwarves & Trolls!

I want to give you a quick update on the status of things with Dwarves of Iron Peak. Manufacturing chats and re-quotes are going well and the rest of the artwork and component finals are being worked on as we speak. 

And now...

A look at some Crud!

Crud hides in the Bog of MurkMaw spending most of his time poisoning his arrows and eating small critters. He is able to hide from almost anything, unless they get really close to him. Crud uses his action points to hide, three Crud Tokens are placed adjacent to his miniature, then his miniature is removed from the board. Crud is then able to use the rest of his AP for moving each token in any direction. Only one of these tokens hide the true Crud! He is never alone though so watch out for his nasty Spider companions!

Surveys are going out soon. I am still working with BackerKit to get everything situated. I want to make sure that backers don't get charged extra shipping and everything is correct before I put these out. I appreciate your patience!

RSG Store


The RocketSlug Games Store is open. Check it out!


Thank you very much for your support!


The Lurker in the Bog!


Hail Dwarves & Trolls!

A Closer Look At MurkMaw

I wanted to give you a closer look at MurkMaw's parts and some of its abilities. 

MurkMaw will have a cardboard '3 hex' sized head. The head can be moved around but it really doesn't need to rotate unless you want to spend the extra action points to get that much closer. The head is able to devour Dwarves on a successful roll when they either get too close or they are pulled in by the Tentacles!

It will also have 4 Tentacles that can either Whip or Grab & Drag Dwarves towards the mouth. Each turn the entangled Dwarf is able to roll to free himself from MurkMaw's grasp.

MurkMaws Head and all four Tentacles have their own health and can work independently from one another with a few restrictions.


The dreaded MurkMaw will also have Special Abilities that it can use such as;

  • Submerge - The Head or a Tentacle can slip below the swampy waters to then reappear most likely behind the dwarven lines!
  • Respawn - At great cost to MurkMaw, it is able to respawn one of its lost tentacles. Max 4 tentacles.
  • Heal - MurkMaw spends Action Point to heal its Head.


Print & Play and 3D Files

This pains me in my fat dwarven belly, but I need to push back the Print & Play and the release of the 3D Files. 

The Print & Play version of DoIP relies heavily on the base game being 100% complete. Until this is done and everything is edited I can't release the Print & Play. I want to make sure that the files I put together for my Print & Play backers represent Dwarves of Iron Peak as closely as I can get them. 

Dealing with the 3D Files for the Miniatures. I've been wrestling with a lot of warnings I've received about releasing the 3D files for DoIP before the actual game is sent to the manufacturers. I want to protect the base game as much as I can so unfortunately I can't release the 3D Files until it's finished. 

Please message me or comment if you have any questions. 

Thank you!


Dice & Books


Hail Dwarves and Trolls!


I've been hard at work getting everything prepared. All of the components for Dwarves of Iron Peak (DoIP!) are getting tweaked so the art/design you now see will have 16-23% more Dwarf Awesomeness in the end. 

Custom Dice

They live! The custom dice designs are up and ready to be voted on. There may be a few straggling artists with their designs that get added later. From these designs we can mix and match. Feel free to vote and comment!

Rules & Quests

One of the biggest changes that I am working on is the addition of the Quest Book. Also both the Rule Book and the Quest Book will be getting a size upgrade to nice a ~8x10 format. This will especially help with the Quest Book so you are able to see the layout and details of each Quest. The previous manual was 5x8 so a lot of formatting changes are being done as well as edits. 

If you have any questions or comments feel free to use the RocketSlug Games contact page or post a comment here.

Thank you once again for your support!

Hail Dwarves & Trolls!


I was so busy with wrapping everything up that I didn't get a chance to send out this update saying Thank You for your support! I couldn't have done this without you. The Kickstarter was a crazy roller-coaster ride but we came out looking great and I know that you will enjoy DoIP!

THIS is because of you! Look what YOU did!


The Pre-Order store is up if you know anyone that missed the Kickstarter. These will have the Kickstarter exclusives but will only be available for a limited time. ** This is not for existing Backers. Existing Backers will be sent a Survey where you can see your Reward and then select any AddOn items. Those will be sent out soon!
