Ares Games is pleased to announce a new game in the Sword & Sorcery line of cooperative fantasy board games. It's called Ancient Chronicles and it's a new "expanshalone." That is to say, it is it's own stand-alone game, but it's also 100% compatible with Immortal Souls. So if you've got that one, you can bring heroes and gear over. Or, if you're new, you can use this as a new jumping-on point for the series.
From the announcement:
Ares Games and Gremlin Project unveil the dates of the Kickstarter campaign to fund a completely new cycle of the Sword & Sorcery game: “Ancient Chronicles” will launch on November 5th, ending on November 21th.
“Ancient Chronicles” will be a new starting point to the acclaimed cooperative dungeon-crawler, suitable both for newcomers and for players who are already playing the Immortal Souls campaign, allowing them to enter the world of Sword & Sorcery again, in a campaign set in the distant past of the events narrated in the previous campaign.
“Ancient Chronicles” will be fully compatible with “Immortal Souls” in terms of gameplay, allowing to crossover heroes and monsters from one campaign to another. Gameplay will remain familiar, but the new cycle will also introduce many interesting new elements to the setting, expanding both the narrative engine and the mechanics, without making the game more complex.
