The Road to War #2: The tools of War

Hello again everyone and Happy Holidays!

This week I wanted to lightly go over some of the different things we will be finding in the Kickstarter come this summer.

The first and biggest part of the Kickstarter will be the expansion of playable factions in the game. One of the biggest Goals that was ultimately never achieved for the original game was the inclusion of all the major powers in WW1. That goal will be center to the Kickstarter. The next post will go into more detail about exactly who will be in the game but it will be a much larger group than just the two from the base game. This will mean every faction will be getting their own ships designs both aesthetically and mechanically. Every faction will feel very different from each other in both regards.

Another cool thing that will be coming to the Kickstarter are the type 3 ships. As most of you know the original had type 1, 2 and 4 ships but never ended up creating type 3. This will change with type 3’s being introduced for the first time. They will have their own role in the game as Pocket Battleships.

The last thing I can say for sure will be in the Kickstarter will be Dice! Lots and lots of cool Leviathans dice. Catalyst is nothing if not consistent in our love of making great dice for our games and Leviathans will be no exception.

This list is by no means all inclusive but it gives you a good idea of what you can be looking forward to when Summer comes around. The next Post will be 2 weeks from now but I promise it will be a good bit thicker then this one as we go into the nations at war in Leviathans.

Hope you all have a great Holiday Season and take to you again soon.

  1. Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know a few of the pictures aren’t loading correctly.
    I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.

    I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the same

  2. I thought Type 3 ships were Armoured Cruisers? We got stats for two versions of the British Defender-class (Evesham and Spion Kop) and French Conquérant-class (La Phantasque and Philip II Augustus).

    1. While yes, those ships were put out as free files, the ships modules were never made.
