Darkest Night: Second Edition Up On Kickstarter

Necromancers. They’re always going around, raising undead, causing all sorts of havoc. What is it with them, really? If only there were a group of heroes that would dare fight back against him (despite the fact that the Necromancer’s already overrun the land, taken over the castle, and only has the Monastery left to go)! Well, that’s where you come in. You’re just one such hero in Darkest Night, the second edition of which is up on Kickstarter now.


In the game, 1-5 players take on the role of heroes looking to retake the land from the evil Necromancer and his undead hordes. Search the countryside for keys to unlock holy relics, gain new powers by defeating monsters, and make your way towards the Necromancer’s lair. But the evil won’t give up so easily. The more time you take and the more powerful you get, the more powerful the Necromancer will get as well. Will you free the kingdom from his cold grasp, or will you just become another of his shambling minions?

The campaign is up and running now, doing rather well, with still 29 days left to go.

    When I follow the link, the funding appears to have been cancelled. Looking at the “4 Created” by Victory Point Games appears to confirm this. So… Yeah. Nothing to see here. Move along.

    They’re being pretty transparent about the reason for the cancellation, specifically: “the “minis vs. standees” issue, the shipping costs for overseas backers, and what we can do regarding your cost options.”

    The main game came with 9 hero minis, the expansions were going to have 10 new hero standees, which I can understand. Better to address the various concerns now while they’re early on.
