Gloom of Kilforth: A Fantasy Quest Game

The land of Kilforth is a perilous domain filled with nefarious monsters, mysterious Strangers and treacherous Locations, and dominated at its centre by The Sprawl, a huge city where intrepid Heroes begin their journey to fame and fortune. Throughout the land various factions vie for power over each other, such as the supposedly noble Order of the Rose or the terrifying Doom Guard. And presiding over the world outside Kilforth is the ever-present Overlord, Masklaw. Over the coming month, a deadly Gloom will descend upon Kilforth,which the Heroes must Battle through to prove their worth, defeat an Ancient evil, and save the land from darkness.

Gloom of Kilforth is a card game of high fantasy with a Gothic edge, playable in 1-3 hours, where 1-4 players, working individually or together, must take their humble adventurers on a journey through a dark world of magic and peril. They will visit strange places, stranger people and overcome powerful enemies in their mission to discover mysterious artefacts and mystical Spells. Players follow their Hero’s tale from modest beginnings through an epic story to an exciting climactic battle for the fate of the world. Gloom of Kilforth takes about 45 minutes per player to play.                                            

The 2nd Print Run and expansions are  Kickstarting on the 29th September 2017. Make sure you subscribe to our website for further details.

The Kickstarter will run Sept 29th-Oct 31st.

Wave 1 - Reprint of Gloom of Kilforth: A Fantasy Quest Game (+ differences from 1st print run!!)

Wave 1 will be delivered in the first half of 2018.  This is a reprint of the first print run of Gloom of Kilforth including all of the original Kickstarter stretch goals, and with the following changes:

  • The 4 purple enemy tokens will become a colour-blind friendly yellow.

Original owners of the game who want these altered components can request them at no extra charge by purchasing any of the expansions below. The rulebook will be getting updates for clarity too, and will be made available as a free digital download to everyone.

Wave 2 - which will be delivered in the second half of 2018.
‘Encounters’ Expansion!!

To clarify, this is not the ‘Touch of Death: More encounters, events, and rewards to add to your existing copy of Gloom of Kilforth, simply shuffle in the extra cards, and you’re good to go.

‘Dark Gloom’ Alternate Art Pack!!

This is a small set of duplicate cards but with original artwork that was either a bit too terrifying, or a bit too racy for a PG rating. These are simply duplicates of existing cards but with slightly different art - they are not required for play. If you do purchase them you can either replace your existing copies with them, or just shuffle them into your games along with their existing counterparts.

‘Pimp My Gloom’ Upgrade Kit!!  Includes:

  • A bigger velvet bag
  • More Dice - 6 white, 6 black
  • 16 Race Art Standees, 8 of each gender, with plastic stands

Kickstarter Games

1066, Tears to Many Mothers is an asymmetric, competitive tactical card game in the style of Magic the Gathering, but non-collectable.  In other words, whilst we do have plans for other theatres of conflict as future stand-alone sets, you will receive the complete game in the box. 

This 1-2 player card game, designed by Tristan Hall, follows the momentous events of that seismic year in English history. Each player, as either Normans or Saxons, musters troops and resources to overcome the various obstacles in their way before their two armies clash on the battlefield at Hastings.
