ABOUT THE AUTHOR AND DEVELOPER​

Felix, J is the renown writer of the original Knights & Legends Tabletop RPG (2018). The game, received major spotlight during its release by unintentionally highlighting gender related limitations which sent out polarizing views all over the globe. This put the young author in a tough spot between those who approved of the game’s rules and the then recently brewed online trend labelled cancel culture.​

For many months right after the game’s release, several smear and misinformation campaigns were launched against the author. But during the chaos something unexpected happened. The cancel trend ended up working in favor of the new book, rapidly expending its reach to a much broader audience. From that moment on, a large percentage of viewers fully embraced the startup’s vision.​
Inspired by the game’s success, the author offered all existing buyers a free upgrade to a visually enhanced version of the same core book. Which was later rebranded Knights & Legends: A Dark Fantasy Tabletop RPG | 2nd Edition . Soon after, the author began working with the feedback received to create a follow up adventure trilogy to the original K&L core book. The new adventure books were labeled Shadow Lords, Lost Relics, and Rogue Priest Expansion. The latter, served the purpose of closing the cliffhangers from the previous stories, but also as an advanced expansion to the existing set of rules.​

15 months later, the New Horizon: All-In-One Core Book (2019), was self published in the same manner as its predecessors. This time around, the author focused in valued buyers input to shape and mold the now three times bigger core book. The game offered a total of 180 pages, many high quality illustrations, and a multi layered set of rules ranging from moderate to complex.​
New Horizon, became a best seller twice as fast as the original Knights & Legends. While the book was still freshly released, the author gave up his profits for a greater cause by taking part in a charity fundraiser towards 2020’s Australian wildfires. The core book was included free of charge in a DriveThruRpg (OBS) bundle containing a variety of other tabletop role playing games that mutually sought aiding the same cause. In technicality, New Horizon, remains the author’s greatest hit with five times more distributed copies than the previous OSR inspired, Classic Knights & Legends.​

During March 2020’s COVID-19 breakout, the author decided to enact a long thought out goal, the realization of transforming his best selling core and adventure books into a full cinematic 3D role-playing game. His vision gave birth to Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age. Few months before launching it, a playable demo was released, giving the author’s audience a peek into what to expect from the upcoming Dawn of a New Age, a bold and visionary idea that merge the worlds of tabletop and video game into one. The demo was received with praise and admiration from both isles of gaming, and even nabbed a new audience in Brazil. Currently, after releasing Dawn of a New Age, the author plans to gain momentum with his new intellectual property Shotguns & Zombies: Zero Hour. And towards Q3 2021, Felix also plans to become available to develop for other gamers and aspiring game designers.​

Here's the latest happening in the world of Knights & Legends!
I've been hard at work dealing with a lot of preps for the release of K&L and Co. games. Everything is going as planned for a November 18th release. No more delays! I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience the July-November postponement may have caused. From COVID, to publisher talks, many things played a role in this four month delay.

Dawn of a New Age's game development was brutal. Yet, I can't emphasize enough how I loved every second of it. It's thanks to your continuous support I was able to create these games. I promise you I gave them my very best with the budget at hand, no penny was spared. And just so you know, earnings from the upcoming games will be largely invested in expanding future game development even further.

Title: About Shotguns & Zombies: Zero Hour, My Newest IP
Post by: FelixGamingX1 on July 23, 2021, 12:09:54 PM
S&Z, is a semi-apocalyptic tactical ops survival horror TRPG/3D game. Much of its influence comes from the current state of the world, and imagining a not too distant future where civilizations all over the globe have collapsed. Not only that, the modern aspects of the game allow its expansion to a broader audience. However, it still isn't recommended for everyone.

In comparison to Knights & Legends, which delivers an accurate dark fantasy medieval experience, Shotguns & Zombies allows the players to invent and explore new ideas without any boundaries. That means you're free to play in 'modern times' or you can take it a step further into a post apocalyptic setting without drastically changing the game's rules.

Shotguns & Zombies: Zero Hour, focus in modern days weaponry, bio-warfare, private military companies (PMCs), and constant grasp for power. E.g. you could invade another PMC's base in order to acquire weaponry and med kits. You could achieve that by using brute force, or taking a stealth approach. All of that while you dealing with the biological aspects of things, face the infected, experiment with human genomes, build your own PMC, expand ranks, customize weapons, etc.

With the exception of the 3D game, the tabletop rpg version requires two players minimum to work as intended, there's no limits to the size of the table. Play online with 10+ people should you wish, split then into different factions. The game focus in team work. Highlighting rankings, different pay rates, and much more.

To play it, it will require a small amount of prep first. The 3D game included is the fastest way to understand the vision and direction for the game. It could even be used to rank players depending how well they perform in the mission. The GM is responsible for putting the desired setting together, or he/she can continue from where the 3D game left off.

I'll be talking a bit more about it when we get closer to the November 18th, release date. Meanwhile, you can catch a glimpse of the settings and world in this PDF Demo (https://knightstabletoprpg.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/Shotguns-Zombies-Zero-Hour-TRPG-DEMO.pdf). Be advised the demo is not meant for playtesting, releasing the full set of rules would imply giving away the game's secrets to copycats, competitors, etc. Remember where you read it first, and thank you for your understanding.   

Like all of my games, Shotguns & Zombies: Zero Hour will require your full support in order to stand on its feet. You'll be able to purchase the game from DTRPG and Itch e-stores. Unlike Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age, both stores will feature the same version of the game. Let's turn this game into another best seller so I can continue developing this new adventure further, alongside your feedback.


Kind Regards,
Felix, J.

Title: BIG REVEAL
Post by: FelixGamingX1 on August 06, 2021, 12:01:48 PM
I want to share some exciting piece of news with you today!
Part of making games people want to play, is to listen to their feedback.
While it's true some helpful feedback becomes difficult to interpret due to a lack of articulation, I've done my best to try and understand what fans are saying. Part of it is to interpret various aspects of data like clicks, subs, views and purchases, etc. The Knights & Legends fanbase is a mostly silent and mysterious one, but your support is loud and clear.

I'm thrilled to see Classic Knights & Legends still selling beyond expectations, provided I haven't advertised the game in over 15 months. Considering, I personally believe New Horizon: All-In-One Core Book to be a much better alternative to the game. But who cares about my opinion? It's all about the game's fans and supporters. What I'm trying to say here is, Knights & Legends 3E, is officially in the works! While it's still too soon to reveal more about it, expect a nostalgic homebrew with a huge amount of lore guaranteed to topple its predecessors in all aspects. All the freedom, flexibility, and endless possibilities you found in classic K&L will carry over to 3E, with a lot of new content and still affordable to everyone.   
Title: Knights & Legends 3E Development Update
Post by: FelixGamingX1 on August 09, 2021, 03:13:17 PM
Knights & Legends 3E Development Update
A brief update in the development of the new K&L core book. First, I'd like to thank everyone for spending a minute or two going over this thread. As many already know, there are several games being released soon and perhaps one or two are bound to catch your attention.

(https://knightstabletoprpg.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/01-scaled.jpg)


I'd like to introduce the upcoming game's cover (above), and the direction this new title will be taking. As previously mentioned, inspired by the rather positive outcome Knights & Legends 2E had. I'm preparing to release the new core book in the coming days. Hopefully within the next two weeks, though it could be pushed till mid September.

The original Knights & Legends, which today I mostly refer to as 'Classic K&L' aimed to equip the players with a generic dungeon crawler featuring light rules emphasizing less reading, more playing. In that aspect, the game nailed it. However, few costumers made clear they felt the game was lack-luster in few of its goals.

E.g. they wanted more lore, finer background details, less GM related prepping.

I did what I could with the feedback received. But as a visionary game dev, many of these 'implementations' couldn't be achieved right at that specific moment due to most importantly, turning the game into something I didn't envision. I didn't want the game to fee like a clone, and a lot of the feedback directed that way.

I wanted the game to hold its own against popular titles. Fortunately, thanks to a lot of publicity and the Q&A I had for New Horizon, I was able to materialize that idea, the identity I envisioned for the game. Basically, it's as simple as an OSR inspired dark fantasy adventure in a custom built world, with its own lore, core rules, etc.

With 3E, and the feedback the RPG community shared with me. I fully embraced the idea of making not only a lore-rich and more detailed game, but also putting to good use all the self taught experience I managed to acquire within he last 5 years, to deliver a truly unique and unforgettable experience.

Knights & Legends 3rd Edition, will be a dark lore-rich game with huge emphasis on how the world came to be. There will be pages and pages of detailed Ezorian history to digest. But not only that, it keeps the lore consistent with many of what you were already presented from past games. The big difference is that a lot of information, including notorious NPC backgrounds will now be presented in a rich and consistent story. The GM, could literally read out loud to players or share the lore guide as a intro to the world's setting.   

Most importantly, it wouldn't be K&L without its unique player classes! You'll find a lot of memorable content, but also many new things that will set this game apart from its predecessors. 'Tis old fashioned gaming for old school gamers, and newcomers alike. More to be revealed soon!
Title: Knights & Legends 3E Development Update #2
Post by: FelixGamingX1 on August 10, 2021, 11:17:11 PM
Knights & Legends 3E Development Update #2
'Tis with great joy I bring you this latest update. Some 30+ pages of pure lore have been written for the game so far. I'll be moving on to core rules, classes, mechanics, plus all the good stuff only K&L games offer in the next few days. One thing you'll notice at first glance, game feels highly, highly engaging. It will be printer and VTT friendly as well. Thrilled to make a surprise drop any day now. Till next update!



Title: Knights & Legends 3E Development Update #3
Post by: FelixGamingX1 on August 11, 2021, 07:41:08 PM
Knights & Legends 3E Development Update #3

Here's a first look into character classes. Each class will boast its own stats, which will them be combined with race stats. Right now, I'm considering keeping player classes to a variety of five. It will feel a lot more natural to add in depth to them, than add a bunch of generic classes without a strong connection to the setting.

(https://knightstabletoprpg.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/pg31-scaled.jpg)

As stated in the game's cover, Dark Ink, OSR Inspired Homebrew. I'll be keeping one continues standard for artwork throughout the game. A homebrewish feel, with professional standards is what you'll experience as you scroll through the many pages featured in this game.

Skills, magic, and abilities will be influenced by the race + class the player picks. The finer details are added later towards the finalization of the character building process. Like previously mentioned, the game will present a different way to play Knights & Legends. I'm focusing in removing the bloat, and only include what really matters to make a crunchy, lore-rich experience. Reminding you that the game is designed with a, DIY adventures, initiative. Thus, I've made the decision to remove Orcs as a playable class. They're still in the world, but mostly as enemies and NPCs. The main races now are Human, Dwarf, and Elf. There's a really good reason for that, but it's only through reading the setting that you'll ultimately understand how logical of choice that was. And to be frank, if players still want to play an Orc, they still can. though, that would deviate from the main setting of 3E.

That means the core book provides you everything you need to start role-playing across Ezora. You can follow the extra spiced up setting, or come up with your own ideas while being provided everything you need to start rolling. Setting up a game will be quicker than 2E, thanks to many, many extra features being added to the latest version. If you own classic K&L, you've already noticed the difference.

It is much unfortunate I can't openly discuss in-depth of the rules, due to the world we live in. Though, I try my best to give you a hint of what to expect. Knowing its predecessor did much better than anticipated, I am confident you'll come to enjoy 3E even more. The secret, made with love and in tune with fan feedback.

More updates are coming in the next few days!

Development Update #4

Knights & Legends: Dark Ink 3e  |  09-02-2021
Welcome to a lore-rich, vibrant world of knights and legends. Following the popularity of its predecessor, Dark Ink breathes new life into the perilous world of Ezora. Players will find bliss and be endowed with infinite knowledge as they scroll through the core book's highly engaging, original dark fantasy setting.

(https://knightstabletoprpg.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/KnightsLegends3e2.jpg)

Read it as you would Shakespeare! World immersion, starts the moment you lay eyes in its introduction page. Followed by 30 more, dedicated solely to Ezorian lore. 3e's compact design delivers everything you'll need to start your adventure, minus the bloat. Like they say, great things come in small packages.


Exploring The Core Mechanics
Once players have been bestowed with basic knowledge, comes character creation. A variety of five different classes and three world races are available by default. Classes in particular, come with their own unique stats, which include pros and cons to each. Once a player picks a class, they're to choose a race. This is the second step of character creation. Race stats, are them summed up or subtracted from the class base stats. From there on, players have a limited amount of Kescs to spend on their hero's starting gear. This includes a variety of items, arms, and armour to pick from. It's advised players only take what's necessary, avoid being over encumbered.

(https://knightstabletoprpg.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/31-scaled.jpg)

(https://knightstabletoprpg.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/08/25-scaled.jpg)

What follows, is the selection of skills and wizardry from a diverse roster. Magick, includes a variety of benevolent and malevolent spells. Anyone can cast magick from the Incunabulum Arcana. From healing, to elemental, to summoning. Though, the Mage class will always have the upper hand when it comes to manipulating these arts. As your hero levels from amateur to master expertise, you'll gain access to even more powerful spells. Some are deemed so powerful, like Rapture, which summons a horde of demons to aid you in combat, that not only they'll consume mana, but also drain the summoner's life. One should tread carefully in the arts of blood magick, it could ultimately consume its user in the process.

This is a mere glimpse of a detail-rich, set of core rules that awaits within. Knights & Legends: Dark Ink, gives both player and Game Master alike, infinite possibilities with incredible flexibility and unique game mechanics. Weather you prefer short adventures or large and complex quests, the game got your back! Its DIY module is unprecedented to an existent, giving the Game Master and players total control of their uniquely crafted adventures through the vast and perilous world of Ezora. Now, featuring a nostalgic and consistent dark ink design with all new content, for seasoned veterans and newcomers alike.



Here Are The Last Few Steps In The Development Process

The core book is currently being revised, and is being sent out to three local groups for playtesting. Meanwhile, I’ll be proofreading the contents of the book with another individual to insure you get nothing but the very best. There's one more little surprise to be announced soon.

Title: Companion App Announcement!
Post by: FelixGamingX1 on August 20, 2021, 10:57:54 AM
Would like to take a moment to announce the companion app which will be released alongside K&L: Dark Ink.
The app, isn't exactly the surprise I was referring to in my previous post. I gets much better, it's coming!

Title: Limited Hardcover Update
Post by: FelixGamingX1 on August 26, 2021, 12:08:05 PM
Limited Hardcover Update
I was so impressed by the overall quality of the proof copy, that I went ahead and secured THE three copies before the printer encounters any sort of material shortage, or price change. These copies will remain sealed until you place your order, so then they can be customized and shipped to you while cutting approximately two weeks of wait time. This means you could receive your specialty limited and signed copy in as low as six business days (depending on location), once inventory is ready and available. All books ship with tracking, so you can have confidence and peace of mind knowing exactly where your copy is at all times as it makes your way to you.

The video above showcases the proof copy. Though, I must emphasize there's absolutely nothing like being able to hold this solid, perfectly made hardcover in your own hands. Another reason why I went with 'limited' to keep it extra special for fans, collectors, and those who really wish to support me while receiving something of value in return.

Thank you! Great question...
During my hiatus, I took a step back and reproached K&L from many different angles. What I valued the most about the game was it's freedom to forge your own path. However, with the original Knights & Legends some buyers complained about a lack of guidance towards the setting. To remedy that, I created a fairly small adventure trilogy. While it worked quite well, some expressed the adventures were too linear.

Now, here's the impressive thing about the original K&L. It still selling today, 3 years past it's original release. These sales are largely driven by fans spreading the word both in the US and EU. That's a great thing, and here's why. The game appeals to a specific type of crowd, and that's somewhat of what I aimed for from the get go. Even while I was focused in some other projects the fanbase keeps growing, slowly but surely.

With Dark Ink, the goal is to keep expanding the game's reach with a highly immersive setting, by giving current and new fans the ultimate experience. Details that can only be acquired with time, research, and experience. Since 2016 my understanding of the community has expanded greatly. This facilitates communication a lot. And with my supporters previous investment, today I am able to deliver bolder, bigger and better products. Game Masters will have a much easier time setting up quests and adventures with the remodeled core rules. And this time around, players will benefit from a lore rich immersive tale before even hopping into the world itself. This will give an even deeper meaning to playing K&L in general. All while keeping the game's much valued element of freedom, and introducing numerous new ideas.

Title: Limited Hardcover Update #2

Limited Hardcover Update #2
Sharing with you some more screenshots I couldn't include in the video, due to its minute long length.
On average, people will rarely engage with a video until the very last frame. I'm one of those. By keeping videos short, it's one way to transmit the message across effectively. This saves both mine and viewers time, in an era where every minute is most precious. Enjoy the preview! The limited hardcover is available for preorder at https://knightstabletoprpg.com/knights-legends-dark-ink-3e-limited/ or catch it digital at dtrpg on 09-02-21.

Title: Shotguns & Zombies: Zero Hour Promo
Post by: FelixGamingX1 on August 29, 2021, 11:46:54 AM
Shotguns & Zombies: Zero Hour | New Promo
In case you've missed the first update, here's a perfect chance to catch up. Go above and beyond when you leave the video a like.
Your support is appreciated!



S&Z, is a semi-apocalyptic tactical ops survival horror TRPG/3D game. Much of its influence comes from the current state of the world, and imagining a not too distant future where civilizations all over the globe have collapsed. Not only that, the modern aspects of the game allow its expansion to a broader audience. However, it still isn't recommended for everyone.

In comparison to Knights & Legends, which delivers an accurate dark fantasy medieval experience, Shotguns & Zombies allows the players to invent and explore new ideas without any boundaries. That means you're free to play in 'modern times' or you can take it a step further into a post apocalyptic setting without drastically changing the game's rules.

Shotguns & Zombies: Zero Hour, focus in modern days weaponry, bio-warfare, private military companies (PMCs), and constant grasp for power. E.g. you could invade another PMC's base in order to acquire weaponry and med kits. You could achieve that by using brute force, or taking a stealth approach. All of that while you dealing with the biological aspects of things, face the infected, experiment with human genomes, build your own PMC, expand ranks, customize weapons, etc.

With the exception of the 3D game, the tabletop rpg version requires two players minimum to work as intended, there's no limits to the size of the table. Play online with 10+ people should you wish, split then into different factions. The game focus in team work. Highlighting rankings, different pay rates, and much more.

To play it, it will require a small amount of prep first. The 3D game included is the fastest way to understand the vision and direction for the game. It could even be used to rank players depending how well they perform in the mission. The GM is responsible for putting the desired setting together, or he/she can continue from where the 3D game left off.

I'll be talking a bit more about it when we get closer to the November 18th, release date. Meanwhile, you can catch a glimpse of the settings and world in this PDF Demo. Be advised the demo is not meant for playtesting, releasing the full set of rules would imply giving away the game's secrets to copycats, competitors, etc. Remember where you read it first, and thank you for your understanding.   

Like all of my games, Shotguns & Zombies: Zero Hour will require your full support in order to stand on its feet. You'll be able to purchase the game from DTRPG and Itch e-stores. Unlike Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age, both stores will feature the same version of the game. Let's turn this game into another best seller so I can continue developing this new adventure further, alongside your feedback.
Title: Knights & Legends: Dark Ink 3e
Post by: FelixGamingX1 on September 01, 2021, 12:23:07 PM
Knighs & Legends: Dark Ink 3e Will Be Here Soon!




If you're a fan of all things medieval and mythological, then Knights & Legends: Dark Ink is for you. Thanks to the rpg community, today I am able to continue creating the games you love to play. As I make a push to extend the K&L saga into the video game industry, continue to expect greater and better things.

As a reminder, the three limited specialty hardcover editions are making their way to me so I can ship them in as little as 48hrs. This drastically cuts lengthy wait times by nearly 3 weeks. Since there are only three of these specialty hardcovers, they're being sold for a premium through the game's website. Not only it's a way to keep them for who truly wants them (e.g collectors, diehard fans, supporters), it's a unique way to keep a rare quality product in your possession. Once they're gone they're gone. It's only natural you wait for the cheaper digital edition first, and I've been receiving requests to hold copies. Unfortunately I can't do that, first come first serve, one copy per costumer. As of right now, all three remain available, and there's no guarantee of when they'll be gone. Secure yours at your earliest convenience!


Support Your Dev, Help End Piracy!
With a little less than 24hrs for Dark Ink's release, I'd like to briefly remind everyone how harmful piracy can be. It's only natural buyers want to share their newest acquisition with friends, both in real life and on the internet. If you're like the average person who understands your purchase is solely meant to one proprietor, you, then you're my favorite kind of costumer. Unfortunately, there was a great deal of piracy happening with classic K&L, including in popular and less popular websites. I understand it only feels right to share your copies with friends, but please remind them if they want to see K&L grow further, then they need to purchase their own copy. That's why I'm making Knights & Legends: Dark Ink affordable to everyone.


Let's Stop Libel Together
You can help by reporting inappropriate, offensive, damaging, and/or defamatory content.
It's no secret I've been a victim of libel in the past. Some offenders were kindly asked to stop, and most did. Unfortunately some choose to persist. Inspired by Jon Del Arroz' case, I'm glad to announce someone else will be handling these. This is a very important step in other promote a friendlier and healthier community. It comes with success, success you as a loyal supporter helped create.


Thank You
As usual, I thank all my fans for your continued support. I sincerely hope you enjoy your adventures through the perilous world of Ezora!

Highlighting Some Hesitancy I've Encountered With Potential Costumers
I've submitted an important e-mail to my fanbase that experienced some formatting issues, but here's a copy I want to share with you guys viewing this thread. Unfortunately human error can, and will occasionally happen. <p> was replaced by <div> and the whole e-mail was one huge wall of text. My bad!

The Message

Dear friend, I'm reaching out to address some common concerns some potential customers are having regarding Knights & Legends: Dark Ink 3e.

You'll see me active on numerous social media websites, including reddit (yikes). One thing in common has been trending among these social media platforms. Hesitancy to buy the latest core book under the claim of not enough content to preview. As you may already know, Knights & Legends has been a best selling series for 4 consecutive years, here on dtrpg.

I can't show a whole lot more, due to fears of exposing my newest product to plagiarism artists. For $5, there's not much at stake imho. You either like it, or you don't. But with 4 consecutive years of best selling products, can you really go wrong?

Knights & Legends: Dark Ink 3e is the 8th wonder of the world. It's a bold statement I know. I am confident you'll like it. But also, there is an important factor at play. If Dark Ink doesn't reach Gold Best Seller within the next two years, I'll no longer be able to continue producing great games like these, because to make quality content like Dark Ink, is taking a significant amount of time and capital. Today, from Dark Ink onward expect nothing less than top quality products. Compare it to other popular trpgs that have been circulating around for many years.

Please take advantage of this coupon (https://www.drivethrurpg.com/browse.php?discount=9079fc546f) and save while mutually supporting your favorite indie dev! I certainly would love to hear your opinion, did you know you can leave a review after 24hrs of your purchase? Your feedback is important.

Sincerely,
Felix, J.

A quick example of the type of individuals I do not wish to have, or acknowledge as costumers
Few days ago I went to r/rpg to spread the word about my latest release. As expected, this type of behavior (https://www.reddit.com/r/rpg/comments/pglve7/hi_guys_wanted_to_share_my_latest_rpg_with_you_a/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3) is often what I'll encounter. It's a good way to stay in the loop of who said what, etc. I'll assume these are teenagers, I certainly don't think an adult in this hobby would behave in such manner. My job in the community is to contribute with quality content that you can enjoy with friends, not deal with abuse. I am certain the community in general, has a lot more to offer than this. Enjoy the holiday weekend, and support your favorite dev!

Title: My Magnum Opus
Post by: FelixGamingX1 on September 12, 2021, 06:29:03 PM
Just taking a minute to highlight how stoked I am Knights & Legends: Dark Ink is soon breaking Silver Bestseller. It's the fastest growing K&L title to date. But I'm also growing increasingly numb to its fair prosperity. In 2018, each new sale made me very excited. Today, I don't feel the same. The slow decay of the community in general, is something that has been consistently bothering me for quite some time.

Some will argue, it's as strong as it's ever been. No, it's not. And I really don't wish to hear anyone's opinion regarding the matter. This is how I feel. I think the hobby has seen better days, and I believe Dark Ink is a special enough title to end Knights & Legends within the next two years or so. It's just about everything I ever wanted for the game. An indie title with a professional feel that offers a solid alternative to other big names out there. It developed a fairly small, but solid cult following with like minded people who simply enjoy old school gaming. In that sense, my goal was reached. Like they say, if it's not broken don't fix it. Dark Ink (https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/367963/Knights--Legends-Dark-Ink-3e), is my Magnum Opus.

Reddit Reviews (Yikes)

Do you like games that are missing most of their vital rules, rule books that use a quarter of the page space on every page reminding you of what game you are playing, or a narcissistic author that thinks he created gold and will come out of hiding to rant like a rabbid weasel everytime he sees something negative on the web. Then Knights and Legends Dark Ink is the cursed tome for you.

To begin we will start with the first section labeled as the Introduction. Its only one page giving an idea of the world, game, and its favorite word “tis”. In other words nothing special, something every game has.

The next part Ezorian Lore, 24 pages of the worlds lore. Its a wannabe fantasy novel that the likes would be found on fanfiction.net. Nothing offensive but not really engaging either.

Next is the General Roles then the Player Classes, 6 pages of what classes can be played and what they encompass. Each class gives you the starting stats, pros, cons, weapons and armor. The pros and cons change the starting stats but are already added to the base stats. I believe each character starts with a 5 then the pros add some and cons subtract some. The book doesn’t state this, but its the only way that the end numbers make sense to me. The classes are the proud knight, the hardened savage, the dexterous ranger, the sagacious mage, and the astute samurai. Each class has a list of weapons and armor which I think is what they can use but the book doesn’t mention anything about it at all.

Next is the Player Races, one page of the races and what I think is how to level up. The races to pick from are human, elf, and dwarf. Each have their own starting hit points and mana points. Below that are elemental weakness for each race. After that it has amateur, novice, expert, and master each with a list of battles and stat increases. I guess you get a new rank after a set amount of battles but no where does it say that. Its just part of the chart with player races. And thats the theme of the book, it assumes you know what every little thing means without telling you.

The next 6 pages are hero creation, with the same character sheet and a tiny paragraph on each page. So lets go in order. Page one, pick your name and where your character is from. Page 2, pick your gender, age, race, skin color, and eye color. Page 3, buy equipment, list is on another page. Page 4, pick your class then write down all your stats. Page 5, pick your spells and skills. The list is on another page but it doesn’t tell you how many you get and neither does the player race page. So do I get one, two, or all from the rank I start at? Page 6, check over your character sheet and write down an ambition.

The next section is Battle Core, or how to attack. Its 2 pages on how to play the game. First is turn order, or who has the highest agility goes first going down the line. Then there are 3 attacks, base, magic, and skill attacks. So base attack is 1d12+1d20+str minus the targets def equals damage. Magic attacks dice from what spell is used + wis minus targets spirit equals damage. And finally skill attacks are dice from what skill is used + str minus targets def equals damage.

Now we are on to the Forge and Bazaar or the equipment page. There are 9 items to choose from such as exotic swords or common swords and the list of material as iron, steel, or damascus with a +2+3+4+5 at the top of the chart. But it doesn’t say which material gets the +2 or +3 or whatever. So at this point make up whatever you want.

Next is the Skill and Wizardry list which is one page with 14 abilities to pick from. Each is marked with amateur, novice, expert, and master and what they do. Then below it says to learn more skills go find a librarian or master to learn them. Okay so how much does it cost to learn a skill, it just doesn’t say.

Now on to the bestiary, which is again one page with the names of monsters, where to find them, and what their weakness is and that is it. No effing stats or health. So its back to making a number up.

Finally we are at the end. The next page is a map, then a blank character sheet, and then an ad for a video game. And that is the book.



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

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.

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.

Title: Big Changes On The Way!
Post by: FelixGamingX1 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!

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.

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.
