Hey all, Steve Crompton back again. With the whole Crown of Klade saga released, the MetaArcade team has been polishing the campaign with a bunch of upgrades. In next week’s update on Thursday February 1, you’ll find enhanced art, new achievements, and a pass on game balance throughout the whole set of the Crown of Klade connected adventures.
We’d love for you to take the opportunity to make a new 1st level warrior and take your character through the campaign, from The Ascendant all the way through Caravan to Tiern, and let us know your thoughts! Did we get the balance right—can your new characters make it through the adventures in order? Will you find the new art and achievements? And did we miss any bugs or errors along the way?
Next Week: Time for a Contest!
So with that in mind, let’s have a challenge for you all. And of course, we can’t have a challenge without some prizes!
We’ll call this the Crown of Klade Challenge. We’ll tell you when the update goes live on Thursday February 1. That will be your signal to create a new character and run them through the Crown of Klade campaign.
When you find a new achievement, or if you come across a bug or error somewhere in the campaign, make a screen shot of it and then post it on our Facebook page.
The Prizes: The first person to post a new achievement or a bug will get our Grand Prize, which consists of a set of actual printed solitaire adventures and the tabletop Tunnels & Trolls quickstart rules. This set of printed adventures published by Flying Buffalo will consist of Buffalo Castle, Gamesmen of Kasar. and a dual adventure book including Sword for Hire/Blue Frog Tavern.
As a bonus, the books will be signed by various members of the Fellowship of the Troll and the MetaArcade development team who worked on them, including Tunnels & Trolls creator Ken St. Andre, Flying Buffalo president and Tunnels & Trolls publisher Rick Loomis, Deluxe T&T co-designer and artist Liz Danforth, MetaArcade founder David Reid, and many more including yours truly, artist and cartographer Steve Crompton!
And so that you don’t give up once the first person has posted their new achievement or bug, we’ll give the same prize to the next 4 people that post other new achievements or bugs (without repeating something which has already been posted).
That means we’re looking for up to 5 new achievements and 5 bugs, so as many as 10 of you can win all these autographed solo adventures and the mini rules! Winners will need to be located in the US so we can mail the prize to you, and an individual can only win one prize set.
Are you up for the Crown of Klade Challenge? If so, get ready to find those achievements and bugs next week!
What’s next after Crown of Klade, I hear you asking? Last week, I hinted that that further campaign adventures await you. I can’t say too much yet, but I can tell you that the next part of your character’s campaign adventures will involve some ocean travel and a journey to an island…
Since the prizes for our trivia contests thus far have been autographed print copies of Grimtina’s Guard, we thought it was high time to have a trivia question from that hallowed adventure! So here is this week’s question:
In Grimtina’s Guard, you are a warrior in the army of the mighty Grimtooth. What is the name and rank of your immediate commander?
Post your answer in the comments section below or on the MetaArcade or Tunnels & Trolls Facebook Pages. I will choose an answer at random from the correct answers, contact the winner and mail your free signed copy of Grimtina’s Guard, plus a free signed comic. (Note: you must live within the continental US so we can ship it to you.)
LAST WEEK’S TRIVIA CONTEST
Last week we asked:
In Caravan to Tiern, you might end up in the Dead Pigeon Tavern. What city is this tavern located?
The correct answer is the “The City of Allivar” which was posted right here on the blog by Tzhett Cox. So Tzhett if you read this before I contact you, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that I can get your address and mail you the signed Grimtina’s Guard solo.
And remember we read all your comments, so you can ask us about anything related to the T&T Adventures App and we’ll give you an answer right here. Good luck – and get ready to hunt for those new Achievements!
