Sitting somewhere between HeroQuest and Frostgrave on the “board games presenting as RPGs” is the haunting The Witchborn.
The Field of Screams scenario in which scarecrows have been possessed by the demonic spirits and become WitchBorn is going strong on Kickstarter and if everything goes to plan will be with backers for Halloween 2021. You can check progress at the Kickstarter page.
WichBorn uses web apps to run the game, they’re updated often, which means this game can be replayed and encountered anew all over again. It’s a game you can, therefore solo or recruit up to five friends for a cooperative effort.
The Field of Screams and Seven Sleeping Kings expansions build on the original set.
A pledge of $99 will get you the double-sided battle maps, print guides to two adventures, Children of the Moon and two new web apps.
However, at $199 you get the Field of Screams starter set which means getting Enter Perdition with The Pit, the new FIeld of Screams and Seven Sleeping Kings, an exclusive mini, the new double-sided battle map, print guides to the new adventures, Children of the Moon, campaign rules, guides to Dwarves, Elves, Guild, Norn, Orcs and Paladins, chaos dice, markers and four passes to the web apps.
