Kingdoms is a dark role-playing game set to the dawn of civilization, with the birth of man in an untamed sunless world. As the leader of a small tribe of humanity, you will found the very foundations of civilization in the face of the suffocating darkness and the horrors within. You will explore the continent, experiment with strange discoveries, invent tools and culture, and, most importantly, slay and harvest the dangerous beasts. Once your threats are slain, you will settle; fortify; and expand your dominion. You will die, be it to disease, age, or slow liquefaction by stomach acid. But fear not, as quickly as you came, your heir will rise to your place and the cycle will continue unto larger kingdoms and greater threats. This is the way of Kingdoms, with the goal of playing out the succeeding generation each session.

The Kingdoms Zine Contains:

  • Rules for creating a new Adam or Eve, along with unique racial traits that makes your bloodline stand out from the rest.
  • Simple steps to breed, creating unique children that will no doubt disappoint.
  • Mechanics for civilizing and expanding, designed to easily create and support your great empires and struggling hamlets.
  • Discover an unexplored continent, teeming with strange flora and fauna acting as bizarre tools that will surprise you how player ingenuity develops them.
  • Fifteen macabre monsters, drunk on decadence and power, they will challenge you with epic, Monster-Hunter style combats with signature beast attacks, multi-staged boss fights, and crafting materials for special weapons.
  • A Unique Weapon System, in carving out legendary weapons from the slain corpses of grotesque behemoths.
  • A DM's guide on running a multi-generational epic from the birth of society to the age of steam.

The story of mankind is yours to tell in Kingdoms. The players will hammer the foundations of human civilization in a sunless world through slaying the monstrosities of their era and assuming the role of their successors to continue the heroic lineage. Will your blood stand for strength in the face of the Dark? Strive for ingenuous discoveries to avoid bloodshed? Enforce mankind's divine right of conquest by trapping and bending the horrors of the Dark to their will? or Will your kingdom fall from heaven having squandered the resources accumulated from their mythic roots?

SoulMuppet uses shipping partners in the UK and USA to provide shipping that's versatile and cost effective. We've focused on working with indie people within the games industry who understand our products, and providing shipping that lets as many customers as possible pay customs fees and duties upfront to avoid hassles at the border.

Our US shipping operation is a single person working part-time and our UK operation is part of a shared service with other games companies. Both are small and are businesses we hope we can help grow alongside us. This means we absolutely cannot ship and process items like a giant online business with multiple fulfilment centres, and nor do we aspire to. We're focused on paying the people we work with a fair wage and treating them as people.

United Kingdom Delivery

We send UK packages 1st class untracked, although larger and heavier packages may be sent tracked. The rates we charge on the store are for untracked. Typically this means a 2-4 day turnaround from you ordering your books to delivery. This is subject to delays related to Royal Mail services such as strikes or seasonal volumes. On occasion, large volumes of Kickstarter fulfilment at our warehouse can delay store orders.

United States Delivery

We send US orders via USPS media mail where possible. Turnaround times in our US warehouse vary significantly as it is a shared service that does a lot of Kickstarter fulfilment. Most orders will be processed within 48 hours, but processing can take up to 7 working days.

Most orders are sent via USPS media mail, but where items are not suitable for media mail we'll choose the most appropriate service for the order based on its contents.

EU Delivery

We send EU packages tracked and where available via services that include duty paid in advance. This is reflected in what you pay on the store. For Kickstarter fulfilment products, this relies upon you picking the correct country variant and paying the correct amount. All our packages are sent with duty paid, either as books or at standard rate for non-books items. We are not able to take responsibility for decisions made by customs agencies in destination countries if they decide additional charges are needed.

Duty paid in advance services have a limit of £200. If your order goes over this value you will be responsible for dealing with the cost of duties and customs on arrival.

Rest of World Delivery

We set up shipping rates for countries not covered above on an individual basis. If you find the store shows everything as out of stock or you are unable to complete checkout because of your address, please contact us and we'll investigate options for setting up shipping to your country.

We send orders to countries not covered above using tracked services that are the most reliable available to us. This is often expensive, but costs less then resending packages multiple times.
