about 2 months ago – Mon, Apr 01, 2024 at 08:39:54 AM

This is not an April Fool's fakeout! You can go to our new Kickstarter page now and download Battlezoo Ancestries Fusions for free. This new ancestry will allow you and your friends (or just you if your game is short on players) to jointly take control of a hydra, cerberus, or two-headed giant and work together to create powerful combination effects like the mighty Omega Beam! It's available for PF2, 5e, Pathbuilder, Foundry VTT, animated tokens... the works. And it's all free!

While you're over there, we'd love it if you wanted to back our new project, Secret Dragons, four new dragon books, each detailing a new and exciting family of dragons: fairy dragons connected to fey, misfit dragons with weird magical mishaps, leshy dragons connected to plants and fungi, and battle dragons who live for the thrill of battle. To continue the wild launch day offers, if you back in the first 48 hours for all four dragon books, we're throwing in a special edition of the original dragon book, plus PDF, plus digital assets (all three combined worth a total of over $100) for free!

Check it out now and get this limited edition free hardcover book, as it's free for the first 48 hours only!

You Asked For It: Battlezoo Ancestries Dragons Expanded At Long Last!
2 months ago – Fri, Mar 15, 2024 at 02:30:21 PM

Thank you so much for supporting Battlezoo Ancestries Dragons and for all the requests over the last few years to expand with even more dragons. We heard you, and so in honor of the Year of the Dragon, we decided to make a major expansion called Secret Dragons with four new books, each introducing a brand new family of dragons, with rules for playable dragons, lore, statblocks, great wyrms, and more! If you're like me and you can't get enough dragons, check out that new Kickstarter campaign, launching on April 1st! Just for checking in, you'll find a free PDF available on launch day!

Here's a list of key features for each book:

• Five New Playable Dragons Per Book: New feats and options when playing these new dragons as player characters—expanding on the rules found in Battlezoo Ancestries: Dragons! But you won’t need to own Battlezoo Ancestries: Dragons to use these rules.
• Full PC Rules: Detailing how to play each family as a player character in 5e or Pathfinder.
• 20 Dragon Statblocks for the New Families: Each new dragon family is fleshed out with new statblocks for GMs to pit against your players!
• Lore and Background: Tons of information on each new dragon family, plus additional lore on each new dragon type.
• Specially Named Dragons: Pit these ultimate Great Wyrms against your most powerful characters and watch them scream in terror!
• Tons of New Art and Tokens: Each book has a full set of art and tokens for use in any VTT or online game.
• Free Pathbuilder 2e File: This free JSON file for Pathfinder 2e allows you to easily add all the new dragons to your Pathfinder games.
• Full access to the development team: Everyone has full and free access to the development team to answer any and all questions!
• And much more can be unlocked with DOZENS of amazing stretch goals!

Thank you for being part of the Roll for Combat community and for supporting my vision for Battlezoo Ancestries Dragons from the very beginning. I hope to see you on the new project, and I'm looking forward to our new adventures together. Let's see just how far we can go!

Devils Out Now! Evil Eyes Sent to Heralds!
4 months ago – Wed, Jan 17, 2024 at 07:46:48 PM

Devils PDFs, Foundry Modules, and Animated Tokens Out Now!

Getting out devils to everyone was ... a devil of a time! It was tricky to get this released as we had to figure out a way to release the Foundry module separately, as well as the other materials, without messing up the existing Year of Legends. But everyone should have their devils, and if you haven't downloaded your devils yet, here is how you can!

Devils PDFs, Pathbuilder 2e JSON, and Digital Assets

Everyone will find the Devils PDF in their BackerKit account within the downloads section. It will also appear in the Year of Legends Battlezoo.com PDFs as well, but not until the end of the year! For now, the only way to get Devils is through your BackerKit downloads.

You will also find the Pathbuilder 2e JSON for Devils with all Pathfinder PDFs and digital assets.

Devils Animated Tokens

You will also find the animated tokens within your BackerKit account for download. Those with the animated tokens Foundry module, simply update the module to version 1.1 to have the tokens downloaded into your Foundry module.

Devils Foundry Modules

Those who have purchased the Foundry module will notice a new key in their BackerKit downloads specifically for Devils. We had to release Devils as a separate module as it's unavailable to people outside the Kickstarter. However, at the end of the year, Devils will be added to the Year of Legends Foundry module, but for now, it's a separate module.

Simply use your Foundry key to unlock and install the module as you would any other.

Evil Eyes Released Now to Heralds

Finally, all Heralds can access the downloads section and get their Evil Eyes! As for everyone else, you'll get to see them in a few weeks!

Also, if you are a Legendary Herald and haven't been invited to the private discord channel, please contact me with your email address and discord name, and I'll make sure to add you.

Whew, and with that, Devils is done! More to come!

Jewel of the Indigo Isles 5E Foundry VTT Released, The Year of Legends Ends This Week, and Battlezoo Black Friday Sale!
6 months ago – Wed, Nov 22, 2023 at 10:57:17 AM

Jewel of the Indigo Isles 5E Foundry Module Released!

After much testing and hard work, we are happy to announce the release of the Jewel of the Indigo Isles 5E Foundry Module! Anyone who backed the module should have received an email with a redemption code. The full instructions will be emailed to you, but here is a quick overview of how it works:

  • You will receive a link to the Jewel of the Indigo Isles Foundry Key for 5E, which automatically includes your discount code. You can either click on this link directly or go to the Jewel of the Indigo Isles 5E Foundry page found here and input the code during checkout.
  • This code will give you a 100% discount off the Foundry Module, but only the 5E version.
  • Complete the checkout process and make sure the amount owed is $0 for the Foundry module.
  • After you complete checkout, you will receive an email with your Foundry code from "SendOwl Downloads <[email protected]>".
  • While you are at the store, feel free to order anything else you might like! :) This discount code can be combined with other products.
  • Do NOT select any other options on the order page if you are receiving different versions. Only add the 5E Foundry VTT version without any other options.

All Physical Orders Shipped and Completed

All orders, over 6,000 packages, have been shipped and sent. Please let us know if you haven't received an update on your shipment or the package. One small note that is super annoying is that the very last shipment of around 50 packages was sent... and then FedEx lost them. I was told this is fairly common as they aren't lost, but instead, they weren't scanned at one of the shipping destinations. I have been told that 99% of the time, these packages will make it to their final destinations and are found along the way.

The good news is that FedEx found nearly all of these packages last week, but around ten are still missing. We have been in daily contact with FedEx, and these packages nearly always show up, but we will ship replacements if necessary. However, it's quite annoying that of all the shipments, this happened during the very last shipment of the Kickstarter.

The Year of Legends Ends This Week!

Continuing and expanding the incredibly successful Year of the Monsters, Roll for Combat is pleased to announce that 2024 will be the Year of Legends! Throughout 2024, a new playable ancestry or race will be released monthly as a PDF, Foundry module, and digital assets.

Last Books Being Shipped Now, The Year of Legends Launched Today!
7 months ago – Tue, Oct 24, 2023 at 04:40:54 PM

A quick update on the final shipments.  At the very end of the fulfillment, we ran out of CHDDR pins and had to delay around 35 orders. I contacted the few people waiting for the CHDRR and alerted them of this issue, and the pins came in last week! Finally.

This week, the few remaining orders are going out, and hopefully, all physical products will be 100% fulfilled and complete by the end of this week!

We also pushed a very large update for the Foundry VTT Pathfinder version last week, where we updated a few minor text issues and redid the CSS throughout the module to make it even more awesome. And as for the 5E version, it's nearly complete. We hope to start releasing the module in parts, like we did for the Pathfinder version.

The Year of Legends is on Kickstarter! Back Early and Get Animated Tokens for Free!

Continuing and expanding the incredibly successful Year of the Monsters, Roll for Combat is pleased to announce that 2024 will be the Year of Legends! Throughout 2024, a new playable ancestry or race will be released monthly as a PDF, Foundry module, and digital assets. In keeping with our Battlezoo Ancestries line, each ancestry will be expansive and lavishly illustrated, with substantial explanations of the different facets of their society and plenty of mechanical options to enjoy.

All orders of $99 or more will receive an animated token pack for use in Foundry or your preferred VTT! Get this $99 pack for free, but hurry! Only people who back within the first 72 hours get this for free!

You can see them in action below!

The Year of Legends consists of:

  • January Bonus: Devils are hellspawn that destroyed their infernal contract to take charge of their future!
  • January: Angels are the hosts of the heavenly realms, who sometimes fall from their original duty and take on their own calling.
  • February: Evil eyes are creatures whose bodies are made up mainly of an enormous eye, which can become capable of various magical effects.
  • March: Sphinxes are creatures with leonine bodies who typically love riddles and mysteries, though some of their heritages might buck that trend.
  • April: Gargoyles are proud hunters of the night who can take the form of statues to hide in plain sight.
  • May: Werecreatures can transform into an animal or hybrid form, and they feel the call of the wild when the moon is full.
  • June: Lamias have a humanoid upper body and a snake or lion lower body, originating from a powerful curse many generations ago.
  • July: Giants look like enormous humans and are often associated with an element like fire or ice.
  • August: Golemborns are living creatures who possess certain golem properties.
  • September: Swarmbloods are creatures whose internals comprise a swarm of tiny creatures.
  • October: Psychopomps are guides of the dead who help souls pass on and destroy undead and others who disrupt the cycle of life and death.
  • November: Cerebrophages originally formed when an incutilis bonded symbiotically with a human host rather than killing them and puppeteering their bodies, and they devour the brains of humanoids to maintain their unique biology.
  • December: Arboreals are trees that come to life, often serving as guardians of nature.
