Dark Gloom art example previews - old vs new

Here are some example cards from the Dark Gloom pack, with the original cards on the left for comparison.  If you find any of the Dark Gloom expansion distasteful, remember it is only an optional add-on and not required for play.  If you do happen to choose to add Dark Gloom to your pledge you can simply swap in the alternative art card, or shuffle it into its encounter deck in addition to the original version as appropriate (with Night cards you will have to choose one or the other).  There may be slight changes between the layouts or saturation of the cards below, but don't worry, that's only because I popped the images together in PhotoShop (you'll have to forgive blogspot's horrible image formatting too).

The trader image, for example, originally had a more revealing top:

The Fountain of Youth image suddenly became a lot more family-friendly when we swapped the female bather for a male bather:

And the Demonic Rite image was just all-round offensive, but at least having a naked man being sacrificed was just somehow more palatable than, well, a bunch of poor ickle babies instead:

So that gives you a taster of the types of changes in the Dark Gloom pack.  Again, if you find any of  the Dark Gloom distasteful, it's not an essential add-on for the game, simply an alternative artistic path.  And conversely, if it proves popular, maybe there will be more Dark Gloom in the future...

‘Gloom of Kilforth Expansions’ is live, and 300% funded already on Kickstarter!!

Gloom of Kilforth Encounters Expansion

Funded in under 4 hours on Kickstarter with over 20 Stretch Goals smashed already, the ‘Gloom of Kilforth Expansions’ Kickstarter campaign is the relaunch of the acclaimed Fantasy Quest Game from Hall or Nothing Productions Ltd.  The game’s first printing sold out within weeks of landing in summer this year, and is now back with French and German translations too.  Whilst this is a chance for gamers who missed out the first time around to pick up a copy of the original game, there is also a tonne of expansion content for the thousands of existing owners to get their hands on too, with Pimped Up components, and a small box expansion “Encounters” that grows every day, with the funding goal more than tripled already... 

The land of Kilforth is a perilous domain filled with nefarious monsters, mysterious strangers and treacherous locations. At the heart of Kilforth is the Sprawl, a huge city where intrepid heroes begin their journey to fame and fortune. Over the coming month, a deadly ‘gloom’ will descend on the world, through which the heroes must battle to prove their worth, defeat a primordial evil, and save the land from darkness.
