Stretch Goal #1 Unlocked

The Warlock Joins The Fight!

Amazing job everyone! With your tremendous support we have now raised $16k CDN and the first stretch goal has been unlocked. Thank you so much!

And now, allow me to introduce...

Descendants of the first inhabitants of Niflheim - Warlocks are a specialized class of spellcasters shrouded in darkness and mystery. Their darkened souls influence all of their invocations, granting them access to blackest magic in all of Hávámal. Harnessing the powers of Hel herself, the Warlock is able to commune with the dead at will.

These spirits are often called from the Underworld, summoned into the mortal realms to do their master's bidding. This makes the Warlock a powerful force to be reckoned with. However, tapping into these dark forces has a cost, as disease and famine always follow close behind. To ward themselves from these demonic energies, these dark emissaries attach animal bones and eerie effigies to their garments in an attempt to prolong their own diabolical existence.  

Warlock Skill Preview

Withering Orb

Emerging from the Warlock's hand, an orb of pure hatred is pitched toward a target, causing the victim to suffer direct dark damage. Upon impact, this spell has a chance to inflict Withering Plague, a curse dealing poison damage over time.

Summon Familiar 

Through prolonged conversations with the spirit world, the Warlock has developed strong relationships with powerful demons that can be summoned on command. These creatures range from small minions to gargantuan beasts. 

Dark Effigy

The Warlock recites a vile incantation and marks the ground around them, summoning an invisible effigy that resides in the shadows. When an enemy enters the marked area, the trap springs, unleashing demonic energies that terrify all within its grasp. 

Onwards!

Over this past weekend we managed to record some new footage of the game running across PC and Android devices, so you can except to see some more content showcasing how the cross-platform aspects are going to work sometime next week. Once this video is done being edited we are going to be launching a Steam Greenlight campaign and we could really use your help to get accepted there as quickly as possible.

Thanks again backers, you're doing an amazing job! Reaching this first stretch goal was a great accomplishment, but there are still many more to unlock so remember to keep sharing the campaign page wherever you can and get your friends to do the same.
