The Gorgon’s Loch

The Gorgon Queen has captured your souls and is using them as her playthings in her enchanted dungeon, the Gorgon’s Loch. The dungeon is packed with the Gorgon Queen’s forces who are loyal to her every command. You must collect and use potions, magical scrolls, weapons, and armor to survive the onslaught of these forces while avoiding traps and dark enchantments waiting to slow your progress at every turn. 

The Gorgon’s Loch exists to attract new players to the amazing world of board and tabletop gaming by being an easy, unintimidating gateway game to the hobby. The Gorgon’s Loch is a fun, exciting, turn-based fantasy dungeon adventure for 1-5 players, suitable for all the family. It can be played as a solo game. It can be played with or without a Dungeon Master. Players can drop in and drop out as they wish, allowing for fun, uninterrupted game nights!

Pledges start at $48 for the game.


Immortal Kings – Forces of Night


Immortal Kings started the development of the Future range of miniatures in the fall of 2016.  A variety of artists from all over the planet were engaged for line art, color concepts, digital sculpts, and 3D printing.  Over the course of the next few years, the first range of miniatures was completed. 

In 2019, the decision was made to move additive manufacturing of miniatures and also selling printable downloads.  It was also decided that IK was situated to provide prototype development to others who wanted to bring their miniatures to life.  Today, IK is developing new miniatures ranges via crowdfunding; that will be sold direct through our online store.


Pledges start at $15 for digital and $45 for wargame scale physical minis.


The Chronicles of Aeres

Aeres is a new setting for your adventurous 5th Edition campaign. The Chronicles of Aeres, the title of the handbook, represent the histories, mythologies, heroes, villains, and struggles of this mystical realm, the details of which we’re working diligently to bring to life.

Aeres is filled to the brim with nostalgia, and its sensibilities are decidedly old school. It’s a land that hearkens back to a classical age of fantasy—an age of larger-than-life heroes, true, but also a time when hapless farmhands and folksy Hobbits were coaxed into an adventure by wizards, prophecies, and promises of magical treasure. For those who seek their fortune in this realm, the result is often peril and adventure—but just as often magic and charm. 

Pledges start at $10 for a PDF and $45 for a hardcover edition.



Paper Apps – Dungeon

I’m creating a procedurally-generated pencil and paper dungeon that you can easily carry in the back pocket of your jeans. The basics:

  • Each book is unique, because:
  • Each page is randomly generated
  • Play wherever, whenever

Gameplay is simple but entertaining: you roll a 6-sided die to determine how far you’ll move each turn. Then pick a direction, draw a line, and interact with anything on that line, be it a monster (ouch!) some treasure (nice!) or a teleporter (cool!). Customize your character, roll your way through each floor, and get items at the shops sprinkled throughout the game. There’s even a page in the back to track stats like how many times you died — so if you die, don’t worry! It’s all part of the adventure.

Pledges start at $5 for a single tiny paper dungeon.

Primal: The Awakening

Primal: the Awakening is a fully cooperative monster-hunting miniature board game for 1-4 players set in a fantasy world where humans struggle to survive an untamed wilderness. The game is played in a series of multiple sessions throughout an epic campaign where you will take the role of hunters fighting monstrous creatures and unveiling mysteries about their origins.

The gameplay is centered on an intense and challenging boss-fight system that combines tactical positioning on the board, hand management, and cooperative play. The combat is designed to be fast-paced while focusing on card combos and player interaction. Each monster is a unique challenge that hunters will have to face as a group, completing specific objectives and adopting different strategies.

Pledges start at $169.
