We’ll also be running twenty-one (21) events at the convention! Be sure to sign up for some Battlelords games! No experience necessary. In addition, we will continue our tradition of giving out swag to everyone who plays our games – 2020 commemorative Battlelords Dog Tags this year. Moreover, we are looking at awarding actual medals to players whose characters show great heroism or are wounded/die in combat.


The book is being printed as I type this. It is expected to hit our fulfillment houses in the UK and US in March or early April.


Last night we updated the PDF on our Kickstarter (backerkit) and on DriveThruRPG to the newest edition. We had some time to correct some errors and clarify some rules people had questions about before the book hit the press.  Kickstarter supporters and DriveThruRPG customers should have received an email link to the newest PDF. In addition, Kickstarter supporters can follow the link in any of the previous emails we sent to their digital downloads to get the new version of the Battlelords PDF.
