  1. Ironmonger

    Discount Voucher is still active

    Which voucher?
  2. Has anyone tried adjusting the number of souls so they scale with the difficulty of enemies and encounters? Like, each enemy is worth their combined defense+wound value?
  3. Ironmonger

    add-ons + tretch goals DSBG?

    During the undoing video for the Asylum/Stray Daemon and the Four Kings, they also suggested they may very well sell those KS Exclusives at cons like GenCon. I hope so, as I was fool enough to not 'full-back' the project at the time. I'm a completist, so REALLY want that Executioner Chariot and, especially for the Iron Keep, the Old Iron King... @cougarhunter I'd recommend watching through their unblocking/streaming videos: they answer lots of questions there, usually towards the end of each. As for stuff like the metal Aggr token... pretty sure that won't see the retail light of day😩

    Game rules

    I can say, with 4 players in the campaign, and starting off with 2 adjacent tier 1 rooms, you can LITERALLY infinite-farm, level up, and restore your sparks. Like... the grind is trivial. You may as well just say you've gone through the encounters, collect souls, reset the spark every 8 souls, and flip a few dozen cards as your group levels up to tier 3 across the board without a problem.
  5. Just curious, as I’m still not clear on this...what’s the point of the first player token?

    Summons - Has anyone tried them?

    Where's the print an play stuff available from?
  7. What would you like to see in these, if they were ever to become expansions? I’ll start off: Sen’s Fortress -dedicated tiles (6). -‘moving’ guillotine tokens, each taking up 2 nodes, moving when Enemies activate. - 3x serpent soilders - 3x serpent mages - 2x Balder Knights - 2x Vagrants - Undead Prince Ricard - Iron Golem Blighttown: - Dedicated Tiles (6) - Tile ‘Scaffold inserts:’ each with a 1-2-1-2-1 node lay-out that can only have interactions with/between Enemies/Characters while both/either are on them. - Randomized ‘ladder’ tokens to get ‘onto/off of’ Scaffolds - no idea about Enemies... thoughts?

  9. Thanks, Flamehearted! I know the page. I’m more interested where it says you can spend Souls while not on the Bonfire tile. All underlines are mine: pg. 13 - “Home Base” Another important party resource on the Bonfire tile is the soul cache...and are used in numerous ways when interacting with the non-player characters, Blacksmith Andre and the Firekeeper. pg. 14 - “Blacksmith Andre” When the party returns to the Bonfire between encounters, they may visit Blacksmith Andre to purchase treasure, change equipment, and upgrade equipment. To purchase treasure, remove 1 soul from the soul cache... Characters can change equipment only when they visit Blacksmith Andre. pg 15 - “The Firekeeper The party may visit the Firekeeper to level up and restore luck. To level up, a character must spend souls... characters can also restore luck at the Firekeeper. A character must spend 1 soul... So, that all seems pretty straight-forward and clear to me: you MUST return to the Bonfire if you want to interact with NPCs (thus resetting the encounters), and interacting with the NPCs is the ONLY WAY to spend souls. I cannot find anything in the rulebook or FAQ/Errata that contradicts this. Don’t get me wrong: I REALLY want to find something which DOES contradict this...

    Parry as an alternative to Dodge or Armour?

    The wording needs to be tweaked, but we’re going to play test this along with the excellent Tiered Equipment/Merchant mod from here.

    Parry as an alternative to Dodge or Armour?

    Thanks! Yeah, I’ve had some feedback from pretty dedicated boardgame and dark souls players, and we’re thinking something like this: I think the easy answer is that you can parry but if you fail you take the damage (reduced by armor as normal), plus the action costs 1 stamina. If you succeed you take no damage, immediately strike the enemy back, but it costs an extra stamina. The dice rolled would be your shield/great weapon’s stat. "Silver Knight strikes you for four damage" Choose to parry Roll just defensive dice allowed to you for 1 of your equipped and active weapons If you roll "x" you succeed, where X could be a number of successes equal to the enemies dodge characteristic. You MUST spend 2 stamina You MUST attack the target that you parried with a standard attack If you roll "not x" you fail You roll your armor check as normal, but without the dice you would get from the weapon you used to parry You MUST spend 1 stamina.” Now it shares a mechanical similarity to dodge, but with enough difference to feel unique, and makes you choose between taking the hit, parrying, or dodging...
  12. Great! Can you point to the page in the rulebook or FAQ where it says that?
  13. This idea is really simple: When an enemy attacks you, roll dice as though you were attacking. Enemy rolls a number of black dice equal to the amount of damage they would normally inflict. If you equal or exceed, you cancel their damage. If they exceed, you take damage equal to the difference. Thoughts? Level the enemies dice colours per their Encounter level? Only allow one Parry attempt an Encounter? Just spitballing.
  14. So, here’s a ‘duh’ question I’m sure, but... after an encounter is cleared, do you have to go rest at the bonfire to spend Souls, resenting all the encounters? Or can you spend Souls/reset your endurance, and then move onto the next encounter? Replect FAQ thread says you don’t have to go rest, but the rulebook seems to say that you do, and it resets all encounters. Seems clear, but I just wanna make sure.
  15. So, I've been combing through images on Google, and I'm having a hard time finding a nice, crisp image of what-exactly-the coloring on regular (NOT Royal) Sentinels is. I believe the tabard is white (not blue), but is the armor a brassy color, or silver? edit: never mind, I see what 'my' mistake was: the minis are Royal Sentinels, though they're called Sentinels: brassy armor and white tabard a it is!
