Dark Force Incursion

Dark Force Incursion is a Roll and Write game that is for one person, taking 20 to 40 minutes to play. You will need one of the DFI maps (plenty of which are free to download at the DR Games website), one six sided die and a pencil.

Your land has been invaded by a powerful Dark Force. The speed of the invasion was frightening, and they have taken all the defensive forts in your land. In desperation you have gathered your dwindling army and now must push out to recapture these forts to secure the safety of your people and drive the enemy from the land.

Aim of the Game

The aim of the game is to claim back more than half of the forts on the map. The number will vary based upon the map, but ultimately if the Dark Force defends half or more of the forts on the map you have lost. You can claim a fort hex by placing one of your armies on it, which means drawing an army across it. This must be achieved before the dark force amasses 25 armies. If the dark force raises 25 armies before you reclaim the forts, they have contained your rebellion and the war is lost. 

Dark Force Incursion is now on DriveThruRPG and can be downloaded here. The first two products, the rules and mountain pack are free:

Presenting Dark Force Incursion - A FREE Roll and Write One Player Game

It has been on my mind for a while now as the Corona-virus spreads across the world . What can I offer those who are at home and unable to partake in their usual gaming sessions because of isolation. How can a creative mind help alleviate the stress of boredom and worry? I have seen other roll and write games and thought that might be a great way of giving something to the community to these very ends.    Looking at what I have previously worked on under the DR Games and the hex tile has been a feature. I decide that I would try and use this format, combine it with a number mechanism and inject it with a narrative. This became a scenario that fuel the fire of the story...and Dark Force Incursion was born.   " Y o u r l a n d h a s b e e n i n v a d e d b y a p o w e r f u l D a r k F o r c e .

The Bones of KalKratha

We have just recently launched a new projected on Kickstarter called The Bones of KalKratha. This is our first Roleplay Kickstarter. I’m going to talk about how this fits into our business model that so far evolves around making our own games. I have always taken a great interest in Dungeon and Dragons. I played it from the age of ten although admittedly I took a long break while I traveled and my children were young. Through Dark Realm Maps, the forerunner to the company, I created maps for fantasy games and became embroiled in these fantasy worlds and it was not long before I started writing as well. Some of these went up on DMsguild and I realised a larger product was on the cards. So, I combined the maps and the writing to create my first roleplay based Kickstarter under my Dark Realm Roleplay banner a sister to Dark Realm Maps and DR Games. This is basically an expansion of the company model. The way we see things moving forward is to have some clear division between

Dark Force Incursion Expansions Launched to Quick Success

DFI came about through an unusual set of circumstances at a strange time, that I discuss in a previous post. But it was solid and reliable with a core set of rules and maps and could be download for free from my website. Yet, as if out of control, the game began to take on a life of its own in my mind. I imagined new land features, hex tiles, expansion rules and maps. I think that, for me, any creation is never truly complete, they just keep on growing, expanding, and ultimately opening new gaming choices.   Pretty quickly I set about writing the rules and drawing the land features for the new maps and expansions. It presented as a series of updates with new landscapes that would be interesting to experience in their own hex maps. This presented as four distinct expansions that would work nicely as pledge levels…yes, I began to think Kickstarter. I had established a presence on Board Game Geek and the free core rules were out there for people to play and they had. I was c
