Stretch Goal Adjustment & Unlocked: Rolling Boulder & Kungfu Class
almost 2 years ago – Wed, Aug 02, 2017 at 12:11:17 AM

Hi, everyone!

We are pleased to present to you an update about the stretch goals. The amounts required between all stretch goals are reduced.

Two stretch goals have therefore been unlocked with this change.

The rolling boulder is a powerful one-off trap. Players can unleash it upon enemies anytime, and it will crush any unit(s) in its path. It’s truly deadly when being placed on a long corridor, and becomes even more powerful if used together with a teleportation tile! 

*Backers who have pledged for the Kickstarter exclusive addon, 'map item sculpture version', can get a sculpture version of the Rolling Boulder on top of the tiles.

With the Kungfu class being unlocked, the combinations possible for dual class have jumped from 10 to 15!

Those who practice the arts of Kungfu excel in hand to hand close-ranged combat. As the practitioner of Qi, your body becomes a lethal weapon. Those who have mastered the arts are said to be able to shake the earth and split the heaven by only their fists! They are unparalleled when dealing damage to a single target, and their Qi circulation gives them astounding stamina and regeneration abilities.

Let’s hope the next goal, a new race, the Longyan female miniature, to be unlocked soon.




New addon: Terror Slayer
almost 2 years ago – Tue, Jul 25, 2017 at 10:05:23 PM

Hi everyone!

We are please to announce a new addon, the Terror Slayer!

The Terror Slayer is a semi-boss enemy unit. Being one of a kind, he has his own HP bar and comes with additional unique rules. Having him, a truly formidable enemy, to join the fray from the Invasion Event cards, it would be far more challenging to defend your Citadel.

He is one of the 3 semi-bosses we will be launching during this campaign.

*To add this addon item to your pledge, please click on the ‘Manage Your Pledge’ button on the main page and increase your pledge amount by the price of the addon.



Black Lotus Unlocked!

Hi, everyone!

We are pleased to announce that our second stretch goal has been unlocked!

Black Lotus is a trap tile that can be placed as one of the map squares of the Citadel, giving more options to make your Citadel unique.

Found in the southern province of the Longyan empire, it is a beautiful yet deadly flower. Those who approach it will be tested their mental strength, as they are pulled into a hallucinated world of their dreams. If you fail to resist you will be trapped in that dream forever, as your body slowly becomes the nutrients to the flowers.
