It's always a great thing to see a game go on Kickstarter, fun successfully, then be sent to backers successfully, and then hit regular retail release. And that's exactly what we have here with Sword & Sorcery: Ancient Chronicles. It's the new stand-alone starter box for the lauded Sword & Sorcery line and it's available now as it hits shops from Ares Games.
From the announcement:
The new campaign for Sword & Sorcery, Ancient Chronicles, starts to hit the stores this week with the release of the Ancient Chronicles Core Set, and three accessory packs: Chaotic Familiars, Lawful Familiars and Ghost Soul Form Heroes. They arrive in distribution as the fulfilment of Kickstarter backers is completed.
The Ancient Chronicles Core Set is a new starting point to Sword & Sorcery, suitable both for newcomers and for players who already plays the Immortal Souls cycle, this time in a campaign set in the distant past of the events narrated in the first season.
The Chaotic Familiars and Lawful Familiars introduce small fantasy creatures able to create a magical link with their humanoid friends and help them during their adventures, and the Ghost Soul Form Heroes features very detailed miniatures to replace the figures of the five heroes included in Ancient Chronicles when they die, plus two gameplay expansions enhance characters' back stories and customization.
