New and Overdue Introductions

For a little while now, the Red Scar team has mainly consisted of Marc, a number of amazing freelancers, and as many of his family as he can rope in to help.

By a Factor of Two!

Thankfully, Marc is no longer the only full timer on the books! Gone are the days of holding team meetings with himself in multiple chairs! The amazingly talented Kimberly Nugent, who has worked as part of the Red Scar collaborative for many years, has recently joined the team as a full-time staffer.

Returning to the Journal

Welcome back to the Red Scar Development Blog! Due to ill health, it’s been a while since we’ve had this up and running. Rest assured, however, that we will now be back with regular features. To get us back into the groove, we’re taking a dive into Payback and what it represents for TriCore. Over to our statistician, Benn Greybeaton

Kings of War Kickstarter Levelling Up

Kings of War RPG

Kings of War the Roleplaying Game is live on Kickstarter! Pledge now to help us fund an RPG set within the epic fantasy world behind the extremely popular Kings of War miniatures game.

The Kickstarter will fund the production of a printed edition of Kings of War the Roleplaying Game. This full-colour hardcover rulebook of approximately 320 pages will not only provide new content for Pannithor, but will also feature the TriCore ruleset; a lightweight ruleset designed to empower both GMs and players alike with the ability to use the system to keep the game focused on both the characters and narrative.

The core book takes a look at the factions from a new perspective and offers several ways to create characters from amongst your favourite. It also offers a comprehensive timeline and full crossover comparability for Dungeon Saga, Vanguard and Kings of War. Backers who pledge for a print copy will now also receive an exclusive cover only available during the Kickstarter campaign.

But that’s not all! Thanks to our friends over at Mantic, we’re adding a digital copy of the Kings of War: Vanguard rulebook to each Gift of the Elohi pledge. PLUS the Dungeon Overlord pledge will now provide a 15% discount code for the Mantic webstore once the project funds for extra savings all round!

Thank you all so much for your feedback on the quickstart, which has allowed us to tighten the rules and add more high-quality art to the book. Please do spread the word about this project to your readers and followers. The campaign is live now, and can be reached here:

In Red Scar Development Blog 04, drawn directly from the most recent Update for the Kings of War RPG Kickstarter, we take a look at the crossover potential with other games set in the Kings of War universe.
