Ravage – Dungeons of Plunder
Ain’t no Heroes in this game, you play a band of Blackroot Orcs delving dungeons for loot and teef, that’s right you are smashing in the faces of your enemies for teef! The tile based game is designed and illustrated by artist Ian Schofield (Achtung! Cthulhu, Mutant Chronicles, Terra Tiles: Misty Moorlands and Coasts & Rivers). Ian will be launching the Kickstarter next week.

Ian found work in horror and terrain illustration commissions however still craved high fantasy work that he grew up on, so started creating a project he would have chewed his right arm off to work on, a dungeon crawler called Ravage.
The game boasts 3 play modes:
Solo Survive the dungeon and its random boss encounter for victory, there is no resurrection in this mode.
Adventure (Co-Op) Play co-operatively with your friends to complete quests, bury the head, defeat the cave serpent and destroy the spider’s lair.
Treachery (VS) You each control the dungeon and monsters that you pull on your turn, pitting them against your friends, setting off traps, looting your opponents whilst you try to keep the dungeon at bay. Each hero kill will gain you promotions, become the war chief to win.
You get to pick from one of the 4 castes:
– Berserker – Unleash powerful attacks charge at your enemies, frenzy and attack multiple foes.
– Shaman – Using your tribal magic transform into a raven or a bear, summon spirits and blood wield your enemies.
– Cultist – Inflict fear, life drain your enemies and even summon the undead to fight for you.
– Head hunter – Use poison and flaming arrows to destroy your enemies and even take head shots.
Each player’s orc has a set of weapons and ability cards that require energy to use, once you have enough energy you can unleash these devastating attacks on your enemies. Exhausted energy turns into experience, gain enough experience and level up your abilities.
The dungeon is presented in a deck of cards, cards are drawn each turn for you to explore the dungeon, they include hallways or room cards, for you to construct your dungeon randomly every time. You will encounter traps as you traverse through the dungeon it’s not a safe place to be, as you and your friends will discover. The custom dice determine trap outcomes, your attack and defence rolls and allow you to gain energy. The different coloured dice represent low, medium, or high odds of a successful outcome.

Today we’re really pleased to bring you the launch of Drakerys, from Don’t Panic Games where the tactics and strategy of a tabletop mini wargame meets the immersion and storytelling of a board game, which we’re launching as part of our special Board Games Week (where you can pick up a ton of board game bargains!).
Drakerys is set in a fantasy world where Dwarves, Elves, Orcs and Humans reign over ancient kingdoms. Elemental magic created the world and went to sleep for centuries, leaving myths about dreadful and marvellous creatures. Now Magic is returning in a world shaken by sudden chaos. Armies are assembling to repel the awakening creatures and seize power!
You can check out all of Drakerys’ amazing sets in our Drakerys Collection on Modiphius.net In Drakerys, each player chooses a camp, gathers miniature troops and takes the lead against other players in story-driven battles. The terrain setting, as well as the victory conditions, play an important role and the fate of your warriors is in your hands. As a war leader, you’ll need tactical insight and a bit of luck to win!
The Ashral Orcs vs Paladinate of Irosia Starter Set is the perfect place to being your adventures. Two armies are featured with fully assembled miniatures: the Human paladins of Irosia and the wild Orcs of Ashral. They are pitted against each other in a campaign to conquer a mysterious archipelago filled with danger, secrets of the magical events to come, and countless treasures. The winning camp will take an immediate advantage in the coming war.
With the Elemental Vortexes & 1 Maelstrom set you can summon powerful elemental forces to aid you in battle and this elemental set contains four elemental vortexes, plus one maelstrom as well as two bonus Drakerys missions cards.
There’s also two scenery sets to further bring your Drakerys battlefields to life. Scenery Set A comprises a shattered castle gate, a length of ruined palisade and the twisted branches of a mysterious tree. Scenery Set B comprises the corner wall of an ancient crumbling keep, a length of palisade and an assortment of castle furniture including a well, chests and barrels. Although specially made for use with Drakerys, this scenery is suitable for use with any 28-32mm miniatures and for all roleplaying games.
We also have further Drakerys accessories including a Playing Mat A featuring an old town on the obverse side and an abandoned crossroads on the reverse, a Drakerys dice set and two minis base sets, and you can see the lot in our Drakerys collection.
