Fat Dragon Games is now live on Kickstarter with their new 3D Printing project for Vallis Mortis. The main focus of this campaign is on bringing this Fantasy realm to life by concentrating on the village of Dragonshire and some of the other locations from their campaign world.

Vallis Mortis, the valley of the dead, is a world which was created by the founder of Fat Dragon Games, Tom Tullis. This Kickstarter and future adventures into the fundraising world are going to be helping to build this campaign and setting to life.

The aim of the campaign is to provide backers with a selection of 3D Printable STL Files which can be used at home. You can back for the different components as well as full sets and then print off as many pieces of terrain as you like, a pretty awesome package for someone who might be a mega roleplay or skirmish game fan.

As well as creating the landscape around the village of Dragonshire, this campaign is also looking ahead to provide you options for diving to the Shadowgrove and unholy shrines of Vallis Mortis plus the terrifying and infested barrows of Barrowdeep. There is a lot coming out as part of this campaign for you to check out.

The terrain that you can see above was printed off using both a Creality Ender 3 and Ender 5 3D Printing and all of it is modular and can be tweaked to fit your specific needs. The underlying techniques which make it playable is the DRAGONLOCK system which allows you to plug the terrain together in different ways. This is a well-known system which Fat Dragon Games has been using for years across the terrain range.

In addition to this, the terrain can also be printed in such a way to allow for you to get stuck in and light it up with flickering flames, torches on walls and warm hearths which are keeping the citizens of Dragonshire safe.

There is a lot to like about this terrain and I love that they've been using all of their knowledge from previous campaigns and releases to bring together a set which is focused on developing the world of Vallis Mortis from the depths of Tullis' mind.

There is a LOT for you to check out as part of this and plenty of different ways in which you can build it up. This just gives you a peek at some of the options they have for building Dragonshire but there is a lot more to come and you'll see. If you're interested in how this terrain can go together then here we have a little breakdown of its use...

It's very easy to make this terrain once you've got it off the printer so all you'd need to do is give it all a lick of paint and you'd be good to go!

Stretch Goals - Fat Dragon Games

When it comes to additional extras being unlocked as part of this campaign, Vallis Mortis has plenty more to offer in terms of terrain and characters too. Here are just some of their upcoming unlocks...

All of these packages give you a bunch of great terrain and miniatures which would be perfect for playing out tales within Vallis Mortis and beyond. I am particularly liking the look of the massive Shrine Of Orcus which would be fantastic for a big boss encounter towards the climax of a campaign.

All of this, as we pointed out above, is tied into the realm that was dreamt up by Tom Tullis. The cover to the PDF guide that you get as part of being a backer (seen below) was painted by the fantastic Jeff Easley.
