Knights of the Chalice 2 (Turn-Based, Party-Based D&D 3.5 RPG) has a Kickstarter NOW until July 2, 2020!

KNIGHTS OF THE CHALICE 2 finally has a Kickstarter publicly available after more than a year of waiting! Fund, fund, fund!

I know some of you want more reason to buy. What is this game?

KotC2 is a party-based turn-based RPG based on the D&D 3.5 ruleset. Knights of the Chalice 1 was a well-regarded indie RPG (also turn-based, party-based, and D&D 3.5 rules-based), and this sequel offers more classes, more scenarios, a game editor (for new scenarios, stat editing, etc.), and (unless the game author has changed it) the ability to legally sell your modules if they’re your property. (No selling your recreation of Keep on the Borderlands, an official D&D module, but your original work is OK.)

The game author made a more detailed overview of KotC2 and displays various classes, races, and stats in the KotC2 database.



Looks interesting. The vast majority of CRPGs these days take most of their inspiration from the mid-90s to early-00s era of RPGs and it’s rare to see games like this try more so to emulate the era preceding it.

Here are a few bits from the official website (unsecured connection):

  • KotC 2 is an epic, high-magic, heroic-fantasy party-based top-down 2D CRPG focusing both on epic, challenging turn-based combat and a captivating story line offering a variety of real options and real in-game consequences .

  • KotC 2 is an attempt at reconstructing the very best aspects of the following games: Dark Sun The Shattered Lands , Champions of Krynn , Temple of Elemental Evil , Baldur’s Gate II Shadows of Amn , Neverwinter Nights 2 , and Broken Sword The Shadow of the Templars . All but one of the games cited above are Dungeons & Dragons video games. Hence, it is very appropriate for KotC 2 to use the OGL 3.5 ruleset.
