Felix, is the renown writer of the original Knights & Legends Tabletop RPG (2018). The game, received major spotlight during its release by unintentionally highlighting gender related limitations which sent out polarizing views all over the globe. This put the young author in a tough spot between those who approved of the game’s rules and the then recently brewed online trend labelled cancel culture.
For many months right after the game’s release, several smear and misinformation campaigns were launched against the author. But during the chaos something unexpected happened. The cancel trend ended up working in favor of the new book, rapidly expending its reach to a much broader audience. From that moment on, a large percentage of viewers fully embraced the startup’s vision.
Inspired by the game’s success, the author offered all existing buyers a free upgrade to a visually enhanced version of the same core book. Which was later rebranded Knights & Legends: A Dark Fantasy Tabletop RPG | 2nd Edition . Soon after, the author began working with the feedback received to create a follow up adventure trilogy to the original K&L core book. The new adventure books were labeled Shadow Lords, Lost Relics, and Rogue Priest Expansion. The latter, served the purpose of closing the cliffhangers from the previous stories, but also as an advanced expansion to the existing set of rules.
15 months later, the New Horizon: All-In-One Core Book (2019), was self published in the same manner as its predecessors. This time around, the author focused in valued buyers input to shape and mold the now three times bigger core book. The game offered a total of 180 pages, many high quality illustrations, and a multi layered set of rules ranging from moderate to complex.
New Horizon, became a best seller twice as fast as the original Knights & Legends. While the book was still freshly released, the author gave up his profits for a greater cause by taking part in a charity fundraiser towards 2020’s Australian wildfires. The core book was included free of charge in a DriveThruRpg (OBS) bundle containing a variety of other tabletop role playing games that mutually sought aiding the same cause. In technicality, New Horizon, remains the author’s greatest hit with five times more distributed copies than the previous OSR inspired, Classic Knights & Legends.
During March 2020’s COVID-19 breakout, the author decided to enact a long thought out goal, the realization of transforming his best selling core and adventure books into a full cinematic 3D role-playing game. His vision gave birth to Knights & Legends: Dawn of a New Age. Few months before launching it, a playable demo was released, giving the author’s audience a peek into what to expect from the upcoming Dawn of a New Age, a bold and visionary idea that merge the worlds of tabletop and video game into one. The demo was received with praise and admiration from both isles of gaming, and even nabbed a new audience in Brazil. Currently, after releasing Dawn of a New Age, the author plans to gain momentum with his new intellectual property, Shotguns & Zombies: Zero Hour. And towards Q3 2021, Felix also plans to become available to develop for other gamers and aspiring game designers. Listen
