Unveiled Sagas – a fan-expansion for Tristan Hall’s Gloom of Kilforth: A Fantasy Quest Game

This page describes a 12-card unofficial expansion to Gloom of Kilforth, containing four additional sagas with finales and totems (one for each skill type).

The expansion does not add any new rules or increase playing time, but only provides more variability by increasing the available number of sagas from two to three for each of the four skill-types. It is playtested, and found to be balanced, clear and fully compatible with the base game. There is no reason that it should not work just as well in combination with the upcoming official expansion.

The reuse of design elements and cardback art scanned from the base game cards for this noncommercial fan-expansion is approved by the game’s designer Tristan Hall (ninjadorg on boardgamegeek.com). Artwork is based on public domain or creative commons sources.

Original content is made by me, Tor Gjerde (gjerde on BGG), in cooperation with Chris Sundli (Koyaro on BGG). Owners of the game are allowed to make their own copies of the cards free of charge. Please do not republish the content without explicit permission.

Professional printing

The best way to make the cards is to have them printed by printerstudio.com (I have no affiliation with them, but have ordered my own set from them and am very pleased by the result). When I ordered, the price was USD 6.90 plus postage and minus any discount (various “coupon codes” are available at different times, but not all apply to cards).

  1. Download all 12 front and 12 back designs to separate folders

  3. Reduce the deck size to Up to 18 cards and click the orange Personalize it button

  4. Reduce the number of cards to 12 and click the blue different images button

  5. Click the green upload images button, select the 12 card fronts and upload them

  6. When the uploading is finished; click [Help me autofill images!]

  7. Click the orange next step button to get to step 2 “Add Text To Front” and again to get to step 3 “Customize back”

  8. Click on the blue different images button

  10. When the uploading is finished; click [Help me autofill images!]

  11. Click the orange next step button to get to step 4 “Add Text To Back” and again to get to step 5 “Preview & Add to Cart”

  12. Double check that the finales and the matching totems have been paired up on opposite sides of the same cards, and that for each saga chapters 1 and 2 are on one card and chapters 3 and 4 on another

  13. Tick the box at the bottom confirming that you have the authorization to use the content and click the orange add to cart button

  14. Complete checkout as instructed

The resulting quality is so close to the original cards that they can hardly be told apart during play.

Print and play

A faster and cheaper alternative is to print and mount the cards yourself. Though it takes a bit more work, and you will not be able to match the quality of professionally printed cards, the result is quite serviceable, especially if the cards are sleeved.
