MY TAKE
IMHO, what this person really meant to say was, hey I really like this game! Buy it!!

I really want to thank you for giving me a good example to point to for players wishing to portray members of the Flesh-eater Courts in Age of Sigmar: Soulbound.

The biggest problem in the hobby right now is the fake “game designers” not everyone is cutout to make games. It’s life, it’s about finding what you’re good at and exploring your options. Instead they get caught up in jealousy driven tirades with the mentality of “who this guy thinks he is?” I don’t even call myself a game designer, it’s totally overblown. I’m a game developer. The difference is, I built things from scratch instead of piggybacking on other people’s successful franchises. Some people hate me for that, I guess?

Well, Knights & Legends is a fantastic rpg in its own right. It just happened. I guess it’s also good advice to other indie writers out there. Don’t try too hard, if you’re trying too hard your game already failed. Everyone is a hard worker, it takes uncanny talent to be noticed among 100,000 one-page rpgs in this industry. That’s the harsh truth.

True Story
« Reply #47 on: October 04, 2021, 08:29:25 PM »
Today, something fantastic happened. I shipped the first ever signed hardcopy of a book I wrote. While a fairly small accomplishment to many, it has such a greater meaning not only to myself, but to other Knights & Legends fans out there. It symbolizes growth, maturity, experience, professionalism.

Being a game developer was never a dream of mine. I'm an avid gamer, yes, but never thought I'd become a writer, or that someone would actually want to buy something I created. It just happened, it's the flow of the endless river of causality. In the last few years my purpose within the trpg community became very clear. To make a fractured community whole again.

Back in 2018, I witnessed the great decay unfold within the hobby. Like a prophecy, I came to you with a 58-page homebrew rpg. What came next was a real test to creative freedom. Mass appeal, or cult following? I chose the latter. Writing games was never about the money, it's about cherishing great times with like minded people, people who really enjoy my work.

Knights & Legends will always welcome new players, good players. Great customers are always welcomed into the dark and infinite world of Ezora. Take advantage of this Dark Ink Core Book community discount and experience creative freedom to its fullest. https://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse.php?discount=983b507f29

Big Changes On The Way!
« Reply #50 on: October 07, 2021, 08:46:51 PM »
Dear friend, stay tuned for some favorable new changes coming ahead. As you may already know, I'm currently working on 3 upcoming new releases. They're Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age, Shotguns & Zombies: Zero Hour, Knights & Legends: Omega. The gaming market is a fast paced ever evolving one! As a writer and programmer if you don't adapt to the market around you, you fall behind.

Knights & Legends TRPGs, ever since 2018, manage to gather a solid cult following from the Americas to Europe. We are a solid small group of players who unite under one common cause, playing Knights & Legends. Be it in person, online, or both. If someone asked me to define what makes K&L great in one word, without a doubt the first word that comes to mind is freedom.

Freedom to choose how you play the rpg you purchased with your money. My world of Ezora, may slightly or largely vary from yours, vice versa. Customization is key to keep Ezora infinitely expanding, and if it isn't enough, remember the Outer World! Two whole worlds in the palm of your hands. You're in control, the core book merely points the way.

NEW CHANGES
Within the next 12 months I'll be transitioning platforms. Unfortunately the commission per sale I currently pay with dtrpg is taking a large chunk of capital which would be better spent in further development of games for you. So, that involves stepping out of my comfort zone in order to secure more funding while keeping my games at affordable prices. As a responsible developer I don't believe it's fair to pass the burden of higher costs to the consumer. You'll continue to pay lower prices, while I receive 100% of funds for your purchase. Nothing speaks independence louder than no more commissions!

I'll be implementing several new features over the weekend at the game's official website, this includes e-mail subscription like the ones you already receive, and important updates to upcoming new releases. This is a zero drama transition, if you've bought Knights & Legends through dtrpg in the past you'll still have access to your files through your library. However, future purchases will be eventually limited to the new platform once it's all up and running, including upcoming new releases. You'll still be able to buy currently released K&L trpgs from dtrpg until end of Q1 2022. Though, that could change without notice. More news coming soon!

Big Changes On The Way (Cont.)
  • Some game's will be going out of circulation for an indefinite amount of time (last chance to own)
  • Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age won't be coming to dtrpg
  • Shotguns & Zombies: Zero Hour won't be coming to dtrpg

This is likely the most important article related to the platform transitioning taking effect soon. It's strongly recommended you visit the game's website, as the article contains simply too much information to copy & paste here.

Big News Coming Soon!
« Reply #53 on: October 21, 2021, 08:25:31 AM »
Hope everyone is doing well! There’s some great new announcements coming in mid November. From Dawn of a New Age to Shotguns & Zombies. Meanwhile, things will be a little quiet for another 2 to 3 weeks while I add the final touches to upcoming new releases. And that’s not everything, you won’t be disappointed.

If you’re just catching up, Knights & Legends is transitioning platforms. https://knightstabletoprpg.com/2021/10/09/dtr-2-itch/

Spoiler Alert!
« Reply #54 on: October 28, 2021, 08:37:33 AM »


SPOILER ALERT!
To every single member of the Knights & Legends fanbase, I'd like to wish you a happy holiday season ahead of time. As you may already know I'm transitioning from dtrpg to Itch in order to take full advantage of zero commissions. This move was an important decision in order to keep further development fluent and on time. As of right now, I'll be mostly pushing updates through the game's official website, forums, social media, and the new platform.

It's unlikely you'll see future projects of mine on the site, since better quality comes at a cost. Not only that, I believe K&L already maxed out its fanbase potential on the site. Dark Fantasy isn't for everyone, it's much like being a metal head, or goth, etc. You have a fair circle of people who enjoy the same things you enjoy, and these groups are often small, with very few would be pariahs. It's when you go to the big events you see how large the fanbase for whatever things you're into actually is. Moving to Itch is a step in that direction. Expansion, more funding, higher quality. You can't go wrong. It is the main event for Knights & Legends.

Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age is scheduled to be released on November 18th, 2021. The 3D game will be launching alongside my newest IP, Shotguns & Zombies: Zero Hour, a TRPG/3D Hybrid. But that's not all, there's another side project of mine, an indirect sequel to Dawn of a New Age, but in an old school 2D JRPG format. Knights & Legends: Omega, will be a free to play episode-based video game with a purchase option like pwyw. If you like it, support it for subsequent episodes.

I've updated the game's official website with some new details about Dawn of a New Age's Ultimate Edition 2.0 Repack. There's some great extras, and a lot more content than previously anticipated. Right now I am adding the final touches to the 3D game and will be working on a new launch video with other marketing material just a few days before the Nov. 18th, launch. I'm running a bit late! Only because I managed to squeeze in Knights & Legends: Dark Ink 3e, the latest core book and setting prep for Dawn of a New Age. Which by the way, has been the fastest selling Knights & Legends title to date. I'm very glad this happened. Thanks a bunch!

I'd like to remind you, your past purchases are unaffected. You'll still have access to your files even though most Knights & Legends products aren't available to purchase through dtrpg anymore. Also, since we're approaching the holiday season, I'd like to give back some of the joy to the tabletop rpg community. Spoiler alert! As of right now, 2019's best selling New Horizon: All-In-One Core Book is scheduled to be revised and made available through the game's official website at absolutely no cost. That means you'll get a solid 180-page trpg for free, starting December 2021. There will be no more excuse not to try Knights & Legends!

As for the original Knights & Legends and its adventure trilogy, there's no word of when it will be made available again. I really wish to push Dark Ink 3e as the new way to play Knights & Legends. If you don't like the game for whatever reason, then there's New Horizon, which offers a more complex multi-layered set of rules. All core books lead to Ezora, so no worries. Please note, Dark Ink will remain available on dtrpg for a couple more months. If you'd like to show your support, please take full advantage of the coupon included in this e-mail.

Thank you immensely for your continued support in the past 4 years! You helped make it possible.

Kindest regards,
Felix, J.

Hello friends, thank you for your purchases and support. The Knights & Legends fanbase is a solidifying little by little. For a fairly new dark fantasy rpg, having such small cult following with this much loyalty is simply intense. Thank you!

As a reminder to anyone who wishes to experience the thrills of Ezora, Knights & Legends switched platforms. You can still acquire the game at drivethrurpg at your earliest convenience anytime within the next few months. But if you want to go above and beyond, buy it from Itch.io, there I get 100% of the funds. You’ll make a much more positive difference towards the future of the series.

The passing of one of the greatest
« Reply #56 on: November 04, 2021, 01:16:50 AM »
For those who knew Felix, they already know he was of one, if not the best in the hobby. All original dark fantasy games was his trade. With a small but solid cult following, he turned a literally unknown trpg into multiple consecutive best selling titles in under 4 years. Have faith brothers, let’s pray to the Ezorian gods. Maybe they’ll at least give us Dawn of a New Age. More updates to be posted shortly at https://knightstabletoprpg.com/

Put 'em to good use
« Reply #59 on: November 07, 2021, 08:45:49 PM »
During my absence in the real world, cultists have gathered to express their discontent with my passing. I put them to good use. Today, was a rather remarkable and mostly entertaining day. I set the bait and the trolls sprung to action. My name was all over reddit. People who never heard of me now were curious to see who was this godly figure the cultists so fiercely despised. Talk about useful idiots. 1k views in less than 24 hours on the latest Dawn of a New Age teaser. Not so obscure after all, huh!? Don't mind the dislikes, it's only a tickle. Please look forward to the resurrection special. As ta la vista!
