This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

DAY-1 CONTENT PREVIEW | BLOOD OATH MOD & PATCH 1.1a


Dear reader, thank you for stopping by! There’s some great news, but also good and bad news in this article. As a responsible developer it’s my duty to keep you in the loop. Let’s get to it!

THE XHINIAN BLOOD OATH



Blood Oath Mod: The mod is the first of its kind, it brings a darker tone to the game, and will be available for free! If you own Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age, all you have to do is go to the game’s official website and click on Mods & Patches. Please note, the page will only go live when Early Access is made available.

Included with the mod are the following changes
  •   New Dark Armor
  •   Harder Enemies
  •   Unique New Foes
  •   Optional Boss Fights
  •   Save Compatibility
  •   New Music
  •   Other Small Changes



The Dark Templar Armor, gives Maximilian much needed defense properties to face new foes.

When I designed the Blood Oath mod, the idea behind it was for it to serve as a NewGame+ to the original vanilla game. With that said, please bear in mind, you’ll get the most out of this mod by finishing the game first. However, I understand that some of us just can’t wait! Save compatibility makes it all too easy to install and run the mod, so you can pick up right where you left off.

DAY-1 PATCH 1.1a

The Day-1 patch brings minor changes to the game, it’s size is roughly ~24MB and adds a new official animation, along with a few extras. All K&L animations are designed by the talented American artist, Cub Olson. As an independent developer, I’ve proudly supported other independent artists since 2016.


The official patch also delivers low tier mod support. By low tier, I mean that I won’t directly be able to provide modders with the software needed to create mods for the game. However, as mentioned before, for anyone serious about creating a really unique mod, other options are available, including profit possibilities. You can reach me through the the game’s official website contact page.

DELAYS & ONGOING NEGOTIATIONS

In the previous article, I had mentioned I was open for publishers to reach out with their inquiries and offers. Today, I can gladly confirm talks are in progress but I must emphasize there’s no guarantee of a deal, mostly because my plans for the IP are very demanding and a bit difficult to make a contract simple. If the game is published by a third party, I’d have the confidence it would reach a much broader audience worldwide in a much faster pace than I could possibly do. Although, when it comes to other specific details, such as rights and licensing, there are very specific requirements coming from my end that surely make reaching a deal a bit more complicated.

November 15th will be the deadline for publishing inquiries. By then, it will roughly be a month since I’ve been open for publishers to reach out. The back and forth takes time, and that’s why I have to unfortunately postpone the Nov. 6th Early Access to Q1 2021. Also, considering I have to pass all docs trough a professional before signing anything, and until I/them finally get to publish the game, it’s hard to give a definitive new release date for Early Access at this moment. But please bear in mind, the July 2021 official release is still on schedule, and the current delays shouldn’t move past mid February 2021.

Thank you for reading! I’ll be publishing the next update some time in a month from now, if you’d like to be notified about future updates, please don’t forget to follow the game at IndieDB.

A New Experience
« Reply #20 on: November 07, 2020, 01:09:06 PM »
Hope you guys enjoyed the latest let's play footage! I've been working hard on other much needed improvements for both the game's official website and first impression. As many of you may already know, game design started as hobby for me back in 2016. Today, it feels very much like another profession.

For those loyal supporters who have been around since the start, they witnessed I had to fight many fights to be where I'm in today. While it's always easier to say I did it all on my own, I never forgot that if I'm still making games today it is because you chose to support me. And while it remains impossible to literally make every single costumer 100% happy, please know your feedback matters.

There are some very big expectations for Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age. I know that the first impression matters, so I went ahead and implemented key new features everyone can benefit from while browsing the game's official website. There are hours worth of articles written by me, a universal digital dice roller, gameplay videos, trailers, best selling products like Classic Knights & Legends, and the New Horizon: All-In-One Core Book. All waiting to be discovered by nearly 2,000 monthly visitors!


A new experience awaits below. visit https://knightstabletoprpg.com/

Delays & New Releases
« Reply #22 on: December 30, 2020, 01:58:04 PM »
Dear friends, 2020 is coming to an end! With the new year comes many great new things, like winning the fight against Covid-19, new releases, and most importantly, getting back to our normal routines. I'm going to be very honest with you and tell you the reason why there's a second delay with the early release for Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age.

#1: 2020 has been a terrifying year for many of us, and I feel like there's nothing to celebrate imho. The release of K&L: DNA is something that must, and will be celebrated for being such an unique and ambitious new project in which I'm sure you'll love.

#2: I see the struggle. There's no one who can predict the future, and all we can do is try to prepare ourselves not to be caught by surprise. I'm not interested in launching the game at this moment due to so many of us stressing out and worrying about the near future. Matter of fact, the $19.99 you would pay for several hours of entertainment can be best used for other household priorities. I understand not all of us were directly affected by Covid-19. However, I must not neglect the fact that there are many of us out there who either didn't have a choice or simply have to face this pandemic headon, like frontline and healthcare workers in order to make ends meet, or simply because they're fulfilling their duties. While I can't change reality, I sure can try to make things a bit better. In honor of all of those who simply can't find the time to enjoy or afford the things they like I'll postpone the early release until April 1st, 2021. Hopefully this is the last delay and things will slowly begin to get back to normal by then.

#3: I'm so confident 2021 will be a great year, that I have a double release planned for you. Today, Knights & Legends has such a undeniable success story behind it, that I owe a sincere and warm thank you to all of the game's fans. Right now I'm working on a new IP called Shotguns & Zombies: Zero Hour. Unlike K&L, S&Z is set in the current world and will debut with a 3D game and quickstart pdf for you to continue the adventure as a Tabletop RPG. If Shotguns & Zombies meets certain expectations, I'll gladly continue developing it alongside K&L games.

I hope you're staying safe throughout this pandemic and I wish you a happy new year!

Sincerely,
Felix, J.

If you want anyone to take this announcement seriously, perhaps choosing any other day might be better than saying it will be out on April Fools' Day.

Before Reading

I want to sincerely thank all of my supporters for making this dream possible. It's been roughly 48 hours, since The Lost Chapter Demo was released. And it was widely received with praise and approval from both TRPG and Video Game communities. Ranging from Reddit gaming subs, to Brazil!

Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age, currently sits at #1 outta of 57,365 indieDB games. I don't know how long it will hold the number one spot, but it sure as heck feels good. Especially after all the hard work it took to bring the game to you. Mind you, this is only the demo! Greater things are still to come.

Early Access Launch Schedule

Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age, was set to be released in late 2020. Unfortunately that didn’t happen. The game’s tentative early release date is now April 2021. If by any set of circumstances I miss the second release date, then it will be released in July as planned. Thank you for your patience while I give my best to make sure you enjoy your gameplay experience.

Leaving Feedback

The demo comes with a built in link that will take you to the anonymous feedback page on the official website. I can’t express enough how important your feedback is. With it, I can make improvements to the game before it’s released. Please take a minute of your time to share your experience with the demo at your earliest convenience. It’s much appreciated, and I sincerely thank you.

Important New Updates
« Reply #25 on: February 20, 2021, 01:51:35 PM »
I would like to thank everyone for the feedback received thus far. In my quest to deliver unmatched transparency, I've made several updates to the game's official website that will help you make a more informed decision about my products.

Some of the new changes include a long overdue About page. Not everyone been following me since the very beginning, so I wrote a 3 minute read, autobiography and history at https://knightstabletoprpg.com/about/

Also made updates to specs, resolution, and different launch-day editions for Knights & Legends Dawn of a New Age.

you can find them at https://knightstabletoprpg.com/knl-dna/
