Elite Items: Overpowered to the MAX

Ever wanted to just destroy the first thing you Hit, regardless of its HP? How about armor that doesn’t let foes land adjacent to you? Hey, how about a weapon that allows you to trade an action for free damage?

Well, all of the aforementioned items now exist, alongside three others of equal power.

Unbalanced? yes, yes they are. So how does the game compensate?

Well, for starters, the cheapest Elite Item is 15,000 Gold. That’s a lot of gameplay. The most expensive? a whopping 90,000G.

Now, who can use these items? Whoever buys them, of course. These items transcend Class limitations: if you have it, you will learn to use it, regardless of what you are. They are just that good.

Available now in the Items Shop. Happy (late) Halloween.

New Monsters: The Shadow Legion, as promised.

Okay, look, I know they were called the Black Legion in the future stuff post, but the Shadow Legion sounds cooler.

For those of you who do not know, Legends of Albadyn is now on Facebook. You can find us, get real-time information on how Beta Testing is going, and other cool stuff.

Secondly, we are also available on Amazon. The Players Handbook and the Event Coordinator’s Handbook each have cool stuff in them, especially the Players Handbook, which has exclusive artwork, an exclusive Class, and some Exclusive Items. Feel free to buy them and support the game! They are relatively inexpensive as far as things go, so check em out!

So, these new Monsters are tough. I have quite a few Leveled Adventurers, and the Shadow Legion keeps pace, even with the Mythic Adventurers I have. If you want a challenge, its there now.

But the Shadow Legion’s Warfare Battalion only has three Minion Monsters and one Boss. Isn’t that low? Yes it is. But there is already a new Battalion in development, so look us up on Facebook (@legendsofalbadyn) for the in-progress updates on that.

God Bless, and Happy Halloween! Got some nice treats ready for my players!

Okay, New Quest out, the finale of Season 1!

Okay, so Quest 5-Broken Blade is out now: it brings the saga of Infernas Darkblade to a violent and (hopefully) triumphant end.

Does that mean Infernas is gone forever? Nope. The Fallen Queen will never let him stay dead, but he will not be reappearing in the Quest Storylines again: The Fallen Queen knows that the Adventurers can beat him, so she’ll just send him after weaker groups.

So please, play it and let me know what you think! Either post a comment or drop us an email at legendsofalbadyn@gmail.com!

Legends of Albadyn Year Two

Well, This is the start of Legends of Albadyn’s second year. Wow. It seems like yesterday at six in the morning on August 28th of 2016. I cannot believe it.

But here we are. What comes next? Seems like Albadyn is in pretty good shape. Our Beta closed up pretty nice, but there is still some content we need to test out before it can be released.

But, I have to tell you all about this stuff that I am hoping to come out with in the next few months.

Quest 5: the finale for the current Quest Arc, bringing Infernas’ story to an end, preferably at the edge of an Adventurer’s blade.

New Items: I want to release some new weapons, but I have to test them before I can do it, otherwise they will be unbalanced.

New Monster Faction: This is the big thing. I want to release a super-tough Faction of Monsters for those of us who like a challenge. Name is all I can release, but I will release that: The Black Crown Army. They are members of an Adventurer Guild that went over to the dark side. They intimidate the Bandits, the Ash Cult, and they are not to be trifled with.

New Mode: Challenge Mode will be coming along soon. Challenge mode features pre-built rooms designed by me to bring you a hard challenge with a big payoff, including a chance for Mythic Gear.

Looking forward to another year.

POLL: How Many are Playing?

Hello everyone! As a designer and a player of Legends of Albadyn, I will be honest with you: I want to see people playing the game. However, as most of my likes come from a group that lives pretty far away from me (such as Tetiana in the Ukraine… I think?). One recent like I got was from a globetrotter who has spent a lot of time in Paris (MIU Travels.)

I am almost literally dying to have an answer to the following question: How many of you are playing?

I am doing this because the Legends of Albadyn community is small, and I would love to be able to touch base with the folks out there who play this wonderful game, getting data and details on stuff they like and stuff they do not from them.

For instance: would you like to see inch equivalents of Squares? as I have garnered the attention of some Wargamers out there (Such as ImperialRebelOrk, one of my favorite usernames I have seen so far), I want to know if you guys and gals would like that.

Please, post a comment on this post if you play this game. I look forward to hearing from you all.

Cheers, and God Bless!

Legends of Albadyn Year 1

Well, it has been a whole year since I first uploaded the first posts on Legends of Albadyn on WordPress.

Nothing is the same as that first night. We have Quest Points, Shadow Gold and regular Gold, and a whole slew of Classes that did not exist initially.

But one thing is the same: a simple game anyone can play. I have no desire to make it any more complicated than it already is: it still revolves around taking a Character and making them your own personal Legend in the world of Albadyn.

Well, now is the time.

Until September 4th, if you and some of your friends can beat the Elite Quest, your Character’s name will be written into the History of Albadyn. Leave a comment on this post if you beat the Dragon, and on September 5th I will make the Lore Post. If enough people beat the Dragon, the Quest will be done forever, and a new Elite Quest will take its place for the next Legends of Albadyn Anniversary Week.

We can do it!

God Bless, and good luck: you’ll need it.

Class Review: The Fighter

Bonuses: +6A/6D

Ability Description: Damage Prevention for Self.

Skill Required: 2 out of 8 (VERY easy)

Endurance: 6 out of 8

Summary

Fighters are ideal for beginners in Legends of Albadyn: they control easily and have virtually no learning curve. The most complicated part of playing a Fighter is deciding when to use your Shield Block. Other than that, their Bonuses are great, and they can survive toe to toe with a Marauder if the dice land right.

Fighters can also be any Race you want, since they can ignore Damage the lowest HP Races have as much of a chance as a powerhouse like a Vahalyr or Orc.

If Fighters have one weakness, it is to Ranged assault. If playing a Fighter, don’t allow yourself to be cornered and then peppered by Crossbow bolts or magical blasts. Always leave a venue open to escape out of, or you’ll be overwhelmed and ground under.
