With our friends at Second Age Publishing, we've released a new 'Print-And-Play' board game, Last Faction Hero, and all the proceeds will be going to COVID-19 Charity Relief.

Last Faction Hero is a simple, fast-paced game set in Greg Stafford's Glorantha, a mythic world of mortals and gods, myths and cults, monsters and heroes – and the setting for the RuneQuest tabletop RPG. The game was created by Gianni Vacca, with art by Dario Corallo.

Last Faction Hero available as 'Pay-What-You-Want' at Chaosium's new page at itch.io. If you're stuck at home, don't fret: this Print-And-Play version has all the game elements needed to play except the dice and markers (pennies or euro cent coins will work just fine).

Chaosium is donating 100% of all proceeds between now and 31st May 2020 to the World Health Organisation's COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

We are all in this together, all over the world, and it's never been more urgent to support the global response—#WeAreAllUs

Donated and purchased the game, but there seems to be an issue with the game board download.

The art and concept seem like a lot of fun. Best of luck and looking forward to hearing how folks are playing.

The downloads all seem to be working fine, please try again!

TYVM!

A question:  if we buy it now -- as part of the covid-19 charity effort -- can we buy it again later, to reward you for your great products and for doing this generous thing?

It is likely that a physical version of this game will be produced in due course; if not by Chaosium directly, then under license by our friends at Second Age Publishing. Second Age also have various expansions in mind.

Does anyone know of an online service where I can get this printed out and delivered? My printer sucks!

Where do you live?

I presume the cost & delays of international shipping do not appeal, so UK replies to some Colonial Scum help neither USA nor Aussies, and vice versa in triplicate...  😉

Profile says UK. However likely depends on what's open where you are. Where I am, nothing - local printers and office services are shut down. I'd send it to a friend who has a decent printer and get them to mail it to me, I'm in the same boat, I only have a black and white laserjet.

I personally sent it out to print at Staples, a pretty standard office supply franchise in North America. If there's any shops selling you printers and paper and filing cabinets, and they offer a photo printing service, chances are they might offer a semi-pro printing service too.

I wasn't sure about the various paper and layout options when printing, so it may or may not come out well... I'll post pictures when I receive it. But it's good to hear that there might be a proper print run later, so we can get the board and tokens with the expected board-game thickness and weight for this kind of thing.

Chaosium thanks everyone who bought a copy of the Gloranthan game Last Faction Hero while it was available as a Pay-What-You-Want title for charity on itch.io during the month of May. The Covid-19 pandemic is impacting communities everywhere, and we are all in this together. Because of your generous support, we will be donating some $1579.50 (less itch.io fees) to the World Health Organisation's Covid-19 Solidarity Fund—#WeAreAllUs

Do keep us posted, Staples are pretty easy to find in Canada... and kinda affordable.
