Back in August, we took our first glimpses at the much anticipated SDE expansion the Forgotten King. Soda Pop have now lifted the lid and announced the details of their Kick Starter.
And what better place to start than the minis...
New Heroes - "Princess Emerald and her companions are questing deep Into the Lordship Ruins to confront the evil that resides there. The Forgotten King includes 5 new Heroes to brave the depths, including the Thundervale Huntress, Fae Alchemist, Tusk Tribe Shaman, and the brave Questing Knight. Each lend a new dynamic to game play and strategy to conquer the Forgotten King and his minions..."
|Our intrepid heroes...|
|Looks like those hooves could provide the Thundervale Huntress with quite a move...|
New Monsters – “Explore the Fae Wood, home of the Kodama, sentient forest spirits with a taste for adventuring Heroes. Wisps lure Heroes into ensnaring traps as terrifying, man-eating plants sprout from the loamy forest floor to devour them. Continue into the Lordship Ruins where the once proud bramble knights, now corrupted and twisted into servants of the Dark Consul; stalk the stony ruins for any who would defile their lord’s holdfast. Don’t get too close to the trees; we hear the squirrels are in an ill mood…”
|The Consul's minions...|
New Bosses – “Brooding from his darkened hallways, the Forgotten King is a cursed lord who has pledged himself to the service of the Dark Consul, darkening his once lush and verdant lands. At his side are two new Mini-Bosses - Trent, a towering guardian of the forest with thick bark and brambles for armour and, Boris - a raging brute with snarling ursine features….”
Aside from battling within a new realm of Crystalia, this edition of SDE sees a number of new changes to the way the game is played:
- Interactive dungeon tiles provide a new dimension to game play
- New streamlined rules now remove the Adventure Tracker to keep the action on the tabletop
- Introduction of new unit types such as Pets, Creeps and Traps
- New Princess Coins allow our Heroes to stay in the game longer
- Increased chance of spawning mini-bosses creates deadlier fights
- Game has been designed for easier expansion for future game play modes such as PvP Arena and campaign play
And in a further attempt to blow our tiny little minds, Soda Pop have also announced the release of a new dark elf Mini Boss, Kaelly the Nether Strider...
"Smoke, shadow, and dark energy twist and lurk from the scarred lands known as the Nether Rifts. From the depths of this stygian abyss the Nether Elves appear. Renowned amongst her dark kin, Kaelly is an assassin without peer. Embrace the darkness with this unique mini-boss and should any oppose you—strike from the shadows!"
If you've never had the opportunity to play Super Dungeon Explore, now's the time to get involved. Because beneath all that cute chibi styling, there's one hell of a great game bursting to get out...
Until next time :)
