Gloom of Kilforth: A Fantasy Quest Game Expansions

Created by Tristan Hall

Gloom of Kilforth is a game of high fantasy with a gothic edge, where 1-4 players, working individually or together, assume the roles of heroes on a journey through a dark world of magic and peril. Each player follows their hero’s tale, an epic saga from modest beginnings through to a climactic battle that will decide the fate of the world...

Gloom of Kilforth, March 2019 Ship-PING!!
11 months ago – Wed, Mar 20, 2019 at 03:00:57 AM

Greetings wanderers of Kilforth,

I hope this missive finds you delightfully well indeed! Let's get straight down to business...


The games are now being sorted and packed by our teams worldwide. 

As you are likely aware, the fulfilment has commenced from Asia as they had a head-start on us, so many backers have already received their games there - huzzah! 

The US/Canada hub has their games shipment and shipping data and are ready to go in the next day or two.

AU have advised that they've not received their copies yet - we've chased them again this morning for an update and will keep you informed.

And the UK shipment (which includes EU and RoW) was taken aside to be X-Rayed (because of course it was), and then it was emptied out for inspection by customs (because of course it was), but it has now cleared customs and has arrived at our warehouse this morning, hooray! Gamesquest are busy sorting and picking and packing the many thousands of boxes this week, and we are right at the top of their priority list as we meticulously booked this all in with them well in advance, so they should start leaving the warehouse at the start of next week. It's cutting it finer than I would have liked, but hey, they'll still be landing in March, and Gamesquest have delivered our last two Kickstarters smoothly and with very few issues, so we're happy!

Gloom of Kilforth, February 2019 - On The Boat!!
about 1 year ago – Mon, Feb 04, 2019 at 03:28:50 PM

Hey All!

Yep, you read that subject right, your games - Gloom of Kilforth and all of its expansions - are finally on the boat! And before Chinese New Year too!! :D

This is the sailing schedule for the ship to the UK:


And this is the one for the US:


   Australia will be landing at about the same time too, and China orders will be shipped locally as well so fingers crossed everyone should be getting theirs at around the same time.

BUT before you go charging off to your local shipping port all like...

... PLEASE remember that these dates are estimates, and that it takes a week or two for the games to clear from the boats into our fulfilment warehouses after they've arrived at port. Only at that point can we pack and ship them out to you, so...

The games are due to be landing in your hands throughout March.

This is great because it means they will land in your laps during the Kickstarter campaign for our next game and the fully compatible sequel to Gloom of Kilforth, Shadows of Kilforth: A Fantasy Quest Game (previously known as Touch of Death) which will be running throughout March also. We wanted to run this campaign a lot earlier for all the folks who have already backed Shadows and are still patiently waiting for it, but we've held off for as long as we could so that we can have these timings sync up and try to please as many peeps as possible.  

And if you don't want to miss out on our future projects - because it's going to be one heck of a year at Hall or Nothing - make sure you become a subscriber through our website here:

Okay, so that's it from me for now. Even though February is the shortest month I get the feeling that in a way it's going to be the longest month this year. :D

Cheero, and happy gaming everybody - you are our favourite mofos!!

Happy New Year everybody!!  

It's only a couple of days after new year so I think we can still get away with saying that...  

A bit of a break from the norm for this update - we'll return to written ramblings for future updates - I've put together a 20 minute video telling you where we're up to and what to expect from Hall or Nothing in 2019. So when you get chance, grab a brew and maybe put a more interesting screensaver on to watch than my phizog whilst you catch up with us:

 Have a brilliant 2019 everyone!
