Post subject:  'Dinas Ffordd: The Seeds of War' Goes GOLD!

After a very long period of development I am extremely proud of the efforts put forth by Joel Sparks, Matt Cuenca and Aubrey Erickson on their first collaboration 'Dinas Ffordd: The Seeds of War'. This is no small adventure and they've packed a ton of goodies in there to make you all really happy.

Check it out here and congrats to all involved! http://worldworksgames.com/store/index. ... cts_id=164

Dinas Ffordd: The Seeds of War

Arcraetian Adventure Module DF1 A d20 Fantasy Adventure for Characters Level 2-3

Keystone of a Fragile Peace

At the junction of three kingdoms, the fiercely independent town of Dinas Ffordd must face all ways at once. Barbaric Oshalogwan Elves roam the plains and hills. The lowering brows of the Worheim Mountains hide the innumerable tunnels of the secretive Dwarves. Crennian Elves, onetime servants of the mysterious Qaali, flit through the shadows of ancient woods. The villages of the Talonian Humans spread south along the great Kriegstrom river. All these races and more walk the streets of Dinas Ffordd in an uneasy truce, come to trade at the busy docks, worship at the mighty Teithian Cathedral, or work in the enormous Millrace. The “Town of the Ways” is the keystone of a peace that has lasted eight centuries. But now cracks are appearing... Your characters have come to Dinas Ffordd to stay. They have fortunes to seek, jobs or connections to exploit, businesses or families to protect. When disturbing events occur, the bold must step forward to defend the helpless and discover the truth: Who would want to break a peace that has proven so profitable to everyone? What threatens Dinas Ffordd threatens you. Come inside, and fight for what matters.

WorldWorks leads the industry in beautiful, downloadable cardstock scenery for games of all kinds. When you buy a WorldWorks adventure module, you don’t just get a great adventure. You get new and unique model sets to fit out your tacticals, dress up your tabletop and bring your game to life! With the Dinas Ffordd module and the VillageWorks set, you have everything you need to stage exciting encounters in the mean streets and the dangerous wilderness alike.
Take a look at the models included with Dinas Ffordd:

* 36 All-New models to expand your VillageWorks setups
* 14 New River Masterboard tiles to build curved shores, islands, rapids and more
* Simple, easy-to-assemble modular Hill risers for taking your terrain 3D -- make full-colour canyons, hilltops, or mountainsides in no time
* Trees! -- including a huge tree with platforms to support climbers
* The Gallows -- final destination for many a rogue
* A mule-drawn ferry to span any river
* The Mob Mini -- Even ordinary folk are dangerous in large numbers...
* Two new roofs for VillageWorks buildings: The Dutch Roof and the Warehouse Roof -- both support minis!
* Creepy underground passages in the style of the popular Gothic Realms set from WorldWorks
* A new Outhouse -- every inn needs one
* Docks and Boardwalk Masterboard tiles
* Barrels, logs, milled lumber, and tables -- Obstacles and dressing for a busy town
* New large cart for heavy drayage
* Showpiece: The Millrace -- instructions for making the giant sawmill complex that runs through the center of town

Standees:

* No need to count heads and carry lead -- print out as many miniature figures as you need! From the beautiful Arcraetian Fey to the menacing Old Cobb, from the lackwit peasant to the toughest warrior, 20 different full-colour standees populate your tactical maps. Plus bushes, boulders, and weird mushrooms.

Rumour Cards:

* Print, shuffle, and deal out these little tidbits of information, overheard in taverns or on streetcorners. Any given rumour could be a blatant lie, a mixed-up tale, or a crucial clue -- and each player hears different things.

Illustration Book:

* In the best classic module tradition, the DM gets a book of 20 original illustrations to be shown to players at the right moment. Drawn in loving detail by Matthew Cuenca in the Celtic style of the Northern Kingdoms.

And that doesn’t even cover the adventure itself, a tale of mystery, bloodshed, and magic that will require a quick wit, a strong arm, and the savvy to know which is called for. Come discover the WorldWorks difference in adventure modules today!

Very cool! Congrats on the new release.

I don't have anyway to run the adventure, but this set will be hard to resist... although, if/when I do pick it up, I'll need to also get Villageworks and Skullcove... possibly even Gothic Realms. Just don't tell my wife :) The trees alone make Dinas Ffordd worth picking up!

On a side note, the font size on the product page is a bit large... couple of sizes larger than normal. Also, the "Recommended" image for "Coins of the Realm" isn't loading from that page.

Well done Joel, Matt and Aubrey. I had given up hope of seeing the outhouse in time for my game. I'm off to download the thing now. Don't expect to hear any more from me in the next couple of hours.

Then expect lots of praise :)

I'll definitely be getting this, but proably not straight away. There's too much cool stuff in it to miss ot on though!

All right! This looks excellent. The Product Overview shots are GREAT! The art, the guide, the models all look beautiful. You guys have once again taken the level of quality up a notch! I can't wait to crack this one open and check out all the goodness.

On the model front I am really looking forward to finally being able to expand the VW set wit the new building Roofs, the dynamic & modular terrain, the interesting new tree design(s)plus assembling all the beautiful models and standees. The MillRace...wow! That behemoth looks like it takes up a *huge area! Awesome!

I am also very interested in checking out Mr.Sparks module. (He peaked my interest in this project way back when during one of the WWG:Radio shows!)

Denny's intimations about what's included in the module sound very cool. (Rumor Cards, The fantastic Art and the unique presentation).

Off to buy!

* Is WWG going to start offering discounts from bulk retailers like Targert, Walmart for large plastic storage containers and silica bags(moisture) for all my model sets?

I'd love to get this today, but I think I am going to wait for the Savage Worlds version of this before laying down the change.

Is there an estimated time of release on the Savaged version?

Awesome as ever. And the models and art is superb.

Can't wait for taxes, so I can buy a ton of this stuff.

Looks outstanding.

One question. There are a couple of places in the preview pics that refer to a Races of Arcaetia book to be downloaded for more information. Where may one find this (and I'm assuming future) reference document?

Hmm, I started posting about the link under "Explore this product" which takes you to the "Arcraetia Guide", but then realized that this probably isn't the file mentioned. It includes a timeline and details of the different kingdoms but doesn't seem to mention the Oshalogwa. The first promo shot mentions "... see the free download Races of Arcraetia 1: Guidebook to the Oshalogwa from www.worldworks.com." so I'm not sure either.

Anyone know?

I just wanted to bump this since it looks like it was overlooked before. With all the traffic the page is probably getting right now, it's a shame to have it look less than perfect. For me, using IE7, I see the font size at 3 or 4 (hard to tell) where the main part of the text should be font size 2. Perhaps the font tag for the header isn't close correctly?

The Coins of the Realm image is correctly loading now though :)

As soon as Mayhem Rail is released I'm planning on picking this up with it.

Agreed Arabin.
The font is quite fat.

Could you please check it again? I think I fixed it.

You can't get it quite yet... Watch for the announcement. And yes, it will be free.

Author:  Arabin [ 01-05-2007, 04:06 PM ]
Post subject: 

It might be a good idea to somehow clearly have it stated on the product page that the guide isn't available yet. Not everyone reads the forums, and I can imagine people getting upset... even if it will be free when it is released.

Just an idea :)

We've reached the necessary agreements with GWG, and Joel's pounding on the stat conversion.

The Savage versions of these adventures is good news. I've held off on the modules since the d20 info is useless to me. I'll get these just for the sake of support. They'll make good one-shots as well. ;)

This will be worth reviving my gaming group for and surprise them with the 3d terrain
