Battle Systems: Maladum Kickstarter
Der Dungeon Crawler von Battle Systems ist online.
The world is not as it was. The ancient magics stir within the earth, and their return heralds a new age of opportunity for those bold enough to seize upon such glorious times.
Within the tombs and crypts of antiquity lie the makings of legends; untold prosperity, unspeakable peril and the ever-present prospect of glory.
The tales of your adventures will echo through the ages, and should your band of reprobates happen to save the world in the course of things, then all the better…
Maladum: Dungeons of Enveron is two Kickstarter projects in one – stunning new scenery for your fantasy dungeon-crawling RPGs and our very own game to play on it!
Maladum is a fantasy miniatures board game in which your band of Adventurers head into ancient dungeons and abandoned settlements to seek their fortune.
The game takes place on the highly-detailed 3D board included in the box. Your Adventurers must explore the area, defeat their enemies, complete their quests, and escape with as much loot as they can carry! The comprehensive campaign system tracks your party from game to game, developing their skills, upgrading their equipment and immersing you in their story.
Maladum is based on our bestselling sci-fi game Core Space, but has been reworked from the ground up to provide a compelling and immersive fantasy experience. It retains the simple core mechanics, interactive NPCs, and unique ‘real search’ system while seamlessly integrating everything you’d expect from a fantasy dungeon crawler, from exotic wandering beasts to all manner of magical powers and weaponry. The sandbox nature of the game offers a fully customisable experience, from a solo RPG-style adventure to a full-on multiplayer PvP skirmish.
A brand-new feature for Maladum is an intricate branching campaign, playable solo or co-operatively. As you play through each part of the story, every decision you make and every objective you complete (or not!) will have a knock-on effect to your route across Enveron and the ultimate fate of your party. The campaign has been designed with multiple paths, continuing the narrative regardless of the outcome of each game, and the accompanying campaign log keeps track of the unique achievements and rewards earned by your party as you progress.
For more on the gameplay, download the rules below or check out the playthrough videos further down the page.
Maladum is a fully self-contained game – everything you need to play the game, including a 2’/60cm neoprene mat covered in our award-winning terrain (no glue or paint required!), is included in the box.
Beyond the starter set, the game is fully compatible with our existing fantasy terrain range so you can adapt the story to any setting of your choice. But that’s not all!
Battle Systems has been making tabletop gaming terrain for over a decade and we have successful fantasy, sci-fi and urban ranges available. Terrain brings a table to life and we’ve always focused on building immersive settings before populating them with our games.
Our longstanding fans will remember our first foray into dungeon terrain back in 2014, and since then we’ve made significant improvements to our designs. It’s time to re-launch the Battle Systems Dungeon!
Our dungeon terrain is suitable for D&D and all other 28-35mm fantasy miniatures games and RPGs. It is easy to assemble and there is no painting required! It can even be flat packed back into the box for easy storage between games. It is made of pre-printed super-high-density cardstock and is incredibly strong and durable.
The terrain is also fully modular, and the various walls, floors, accessories and furniture can be assembled in endless combinations for a different layout in every game.
The terrain is of course fully compatible with Maladum, taking your gameplay to a whole new level, but it is also available separately for use with many other popular games such as Dungeons and Dragons, Pathfinder, Frostgrave, Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay, Mordheim, and many more.
Two Projects = Two Pledges.
- If you’re here for an epic new game, pick up the Maladum Kickstarter Edition, packed full with everything you need to play and more.
- If you’re looking to pimp up an existing RPG or miniatures collection, you’ll want the Dungeon Terrain pledge – a multi-level, system-agnostic, modular box of awesome scenery.
Of course, Maladum is a sandbox game and you can create your own quests to be played on whatever terrain you like, so select the Combined Pledge to take Maladum to the next level and build double the dungeony goodness. This includes enough terrain and mats to fill a 4’x2′ space, and we will include bespoke Maladum quests designed for the larger play area!
Let’s take a look at what’s on offer:
Shipping is not included in the pledge pricing and will be charged separately after the Kickstarter campaign. We have our shipping partners in place and we will open the pledge manager as soon as possible after the campaign, so we have already set the shipping prices.
Some locations including islands and remote areas will have higher costs than those listed above. If you would like an exact cost for a location not listed above, please get in touch.
VAT and other import costs are already included in the prices for UK and EU backers and will not have to be paid for in the pledge manager or on import. For other countries, the amount that would be allocated to VAT has instead been used to subsidise the shipping costs, so you’re not paying extra.
We will ship from within the UK, EU, USA, Canada, Australia and China to minimise costs for backers in these locations. Orders to all countries not listed in the table above will be shipped from the UK. Any additional costs of shipping to other countries such as duties, handling fees, taxes or anything else are the responsibility of the backer and will not be covered by us.
As with all Battle Systems Kickstarters this is just the start. If we reach our goal we will start to unlock bonus content for both pledges at no extra cost! The more backers that join us on this journey, the more everyone will receive!
Stretch goals will allow us to fund new tooling and add more value to your pledge as the total rises. The added rewards will be revealed and unlocked when we hit certain funding levels during the campaign.
Most stretch goal rewards will be included with either the game or terrain pledge for FREE whereas some may unlock new add-ons. See the images below for details.
You will get one set of stretch goals for each pledge that you select, so multiple pledges = multiple stretch goals.
Die Kampagne ist finanziert und läuft noch 21 Tage.
