Cave Evil
The pre-order fangs are filling with blood! Thanks to all our supporters!

"It knows no light, this Cave,

Endless tunnels, endless battle, endless death...

I awoke among my species, mine folk.
I have risen, understood, grasped and taken my power, those below my slaves! I shall raise great armies to massacre any enemy! These territories are mine, only the weak to destroy! Shadow deities pretend to stand above me, but I shalt not kneel. I shall sit on any throne!

Tonight I am Warlord, an oath declared!
The weak and shoddy I shall craft into powerful warriors, warriors into command, command into my Lord of all Battles! Together we conquer! Our species will rule the caverns of black! Into the Warrior Path!"
Cave Evil - Eight armed warlord
Cave Evil
was originally published in 2011, republished in 2013 and has since sold out. The game is centered on the Necromancer and it’s ability to create a web of control to implement it’s darkest will. It concludes with the Necromancer’s victory over the weak or it’s death communion with a more powerful evil.

The Necromancer’s infernal dominion has only begun!

Cave Evil
was only a small battle for a shadow territory known as “The Pit.” A much larger cave world exists. This world will be explored in what we refer to as the
"Corroded Corridor"
, which is a thread that will link each issue to a new character, creature, power, territory and level. The Necromancer, while a master connected to it’s player, has even more branches of power. It’s dead arms reach many in their domain!

In the pages of the first
Corroded Corridor
we will be exploring the
(armies of grotesque denizens who pledge an allegiance to a Warlord and his Necrotic Species Cult Tribe).

"Every organism, every being, must conquer or serve. This is an Ultimatum."

Game Play

As we learned in
Cave Evil
, a Necromancer can weave a web of control over 6 Squads, but their power does not end there. While they may dominate 6 squads, others may swear their allegiance to the infernal magi. The cave is endless. Battles for territory will forever ensue. The forbidden wizards must raise troops from their species, create Warriors from the weak and shoddy, inspire Command and demand the allegiance of their greatest Warlord.
The warrior path begins!

Cave Evil: WARCULTS rule preview

Warcults is an introduction to a
Warrior Path
- the first expansion for
Cave Evil

A Warrior path is a way to play Cave Evil. It is a modified
Sequence of Play
to accommodate players that prefer to play with just a Warlord Character or with both a Warlord and a Necromancer.

The Warlord is a branch of Necro command and is under the allegiance of a Necromancer. The Necromancer is NOT needed to play!

A Warlord commands an army and the divisions of command below them.
Apart from
features, the game introduces new actions and adjustments to the overall Sequence of Play.

Flickering candle
For the Unitiated

does not cater to a low attention span! While the game can be played very easily in a short amount of time, it can also be played at brain knot levels that only a few will entirely understand. Game turns can take a long time as tactical crypt combat often opens up many options.

A game using every function and every map could take 15+ hours to never ending! The closest genre for
is a tactical hex-and-counter wargame but in many ways this is not an accurate comparison.

"When passing through the Valley of Humiliation, slaves and dastards, exposing their sores, sob aloud for consolation and sympathy. The brave stand apart and ponder vengeance or conquest."
