Knights of the Chalice II Update - New Patch and Guidebook

While there’s still no convenient way to purchase Heroic Fantasy Games’ Knights of the Chalice II, those of you who already own the game thanks to its Kickstarter campaign, can now enjoy a new patch and the first version of the official Guidebook. Beyond that, come December 1, 2020, we’ll be able to buy the first game in the series on GOG.

The link above has plenty of additional details, and here’s the latest patch notes and some future plans:

List of improvements in KotC 2 version 1.08
  • You can now use the 'Forge Weapon' dialogue box to craft arrows, crossbow bolts, sling bullets, sleep arrows and slaying arrows.
  • Created the new feats Heroic Concentration and Heroic Initiative.
  • Fixed the Wizard feats Spell Focus and Greater Spell Focus.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented weapon and armour enchanting in KotC 2 version 1.06 and 1.07.
