Dungeon Maker Improvements (Free):


3 New Classes (Inner Strength DLC required):

Detailed information about each subclass can be found in the following threads:


1 New Race (Inner Strength DLC required):

  • Everyone say hello to the Dragonborn! These fellas get +2 Strength, +1 Charisma, Damage Resistance and a Breath Weapon linked to their Draconic Ancestry. For example, a Black Dragon grants resistance to Acid and an Acid Breath, while a Gold Dragon grants resistance to Fire and a Fire Breath.

General Improvements (Free):

  • Enemies who are immune to certain conditions will now display a text feedback instead of leaving the player to wonder if they are immune or if the spell is just bugged. 
  • Clicking the "Light" button shortcut (bottom left) while having a light active will now extinguish it.
  • Four types of instruments can be found for the Bard to use as spellcasting focus: a Flute, a Lute, a Drum and a Horn.
  • Added a "Toggle" Icon for Sorcerers' Metamagic. While toggled off, you will no longer be asked to select a metamagic option every time you try to cast a spell.
  • Unidentified magical weapons will now properly inflict magical damage. The fact of not knowing its nature does not make it any less magical, after all. 
  • Ready Action will now trigger when invisible enemies come out of invisibility to attack you.
  • Added Eldritch Blast, Viscious Mockery, Hellish Rebuke, Malediction, Dreadful Omen and Hilarity spells to the game (Bard & Warlock)
  • Added a "Fast Loot" system: looting crafting components out of bushes / flowers no longer opens a loot window.
  • Buffed most Kindred Spirits base AC, HP and damage as they were a little too weak. 
  • Added some missing Primed Weapon / Armor to merchants in CotM and Lost Valley. If some are still missing, please do reach out to us!

General Bug Fixes (Free):

  • Fixed new Temporary Hit Points overriding old value even if the previous amount of Temporary Hit Points was higher. It should now always keep the highest amount. 
  • Fixed a rare bug where Kindred Druids could no longer summon their pet until they leveled up
  • Fixed Heat Metal not working properly after the first few rounds. Now you can get back to cooking those Veterans alive, you monster.
  • Fixed a couple of range miscalculations where a spell's range would be slightly lower than intended.
  • Fixed Shield of Faith preventing the caster from casting Shield. "Because that would be too many shields, and THAT'S ILLEGAL!"  - no it isn't, get back to casting Shield you dumdum.
  • Fixed a rare instance where shoving could cause an error. Shove off, error. 
  • Fixed AC stacking incorrectly in some instances. Bygone are the days of Barbarians running around in their fancy Empress Garb for crazy amounts of AC. 
  • Fixed allied NPCs sometimes making ranged attacks by hitting air with their melee weapon. That's... that's not how it's supposed to work Beryl. Use your crossbow.
  • Fixed some tooltips which were showing duplicate and/or empty strings
  • Fixed multiple Hunter's Mark (from multiple Rangers) not stacking properly on the same target
  • Fixed Greenmage's Leaf Scale feature activating when they get counterspelled. Which made no sense.
  • Fixed Bracers of Archery granting damage bonus on melee attacks. AGAIN. HOW MANY TIMES MUST WE FIX YOU. 
  • Fixed Ranger Marksman's Reaction Shot not triggering against spells.
  • Fixed Greenmage's Leaf Scale also not triggering properly against spells.
  • Fixed Dragons missing their Blindsight feature
  • Fixed Shapeshifting as a Balance Druid while another character is dead to suddenly trigger a game over if no one else could cast Revivify. Basically the game went "wait, Druid can revivify, but Bear no can revivify. Druid now Bear, so revivify not possible now. Dead person no can be saved, game over". Oh game, you did your best.
  • Fixed Law Cleric's Holy Retribution text string - and hopefully it should no longer randomly deal damage to the Cleric instead of the attacker.
  • Fixed an issue where Confrontation (Lost Valley) could become impossible to complete if Karelia was killed
  • Fixed an issue where The Lost Apprentice (Lost Valley) could bug out if Lysantir died before reaching Orenetis or Hasbrudal
  • Fixed an issue which could prevent the completion of The Lost Book (Lost Valley)
  • Secret Report (Lost Valley) will now properly fail if you previously killed Cafrain's contact
  • Fixed Berserker Barbarians' saving throw against Frenzy not taking into account their magic items' bonus
  • Fixed bonus cantrips gained from subclasses being into account in the total number of cantrips known when leveling up (preventing the spellcaster from learning more cantrips)
  • Fixed Confusion's area of effect not increasing when upcasted
  • Fixed Marksman Ranger's Recycler not working properly while traveling on the World Map
  • Fixed several issues with Chinese and Russian where some text wouldn't appear
  • Barbarian Rage should no longer work when wearing Heavy Armor
  • Fixed an issue where Wind Druid's Sheltering Breeze could only be used once per long rest
  • Fixed an issue where Hunter Ranger's Whirlwind Attack would do absolutely nothing when used. Well that was disappointing.
  • Fixed an issue where... alright where do I start with this one. If your character falls unconscious while you had their inventory open, and you then use an item from there while unconscious, game goes boom. Congrats to that one guy for finding this bug.
  • Slashing, Piercing and Bludgeoning damage inflicted by spells should now be correctly considered "magical damage" for the purpose of overcoming resistance and immunity. Because one could argue that spells are, I don't know, magic?
  • Fixed a weird interaction between Rogue's Evasion and Draconic Sorcerer's Elemental Affinity that would prevent Evasion from triggering.
  • Fixed Marksman Ranger's Fast Aim being completely busted and targeting every enemy you hit previously on your turn. It should now correctly only target the last enemy you attacked.
  • Fixed Giant Crows' disease not doing ANYTHING AT ALL. Y'ALL SHALL NOW SUFFER AT THE HANDS OF THE GIANT CROWS.
  • Fixed Barbarian's Rage not correctly ending when they don't attack nor take damage for a round. C'mon they're strong enough already in Solasta, no need for freebies.
  • Fixed an issue where some Kickstarter backers' names were overlapping in Caer Cyflen's monument
  • Fixed an issue where ability scores would sometimes be unable to go above 20 even when intended (like with a Potion of Cloud Giant Strength)
  • Fixed Judgment Paladin's Aura of Righteousness not providing its bonus correctly on spells with multiple projectiles
  • Creatures under the effect of Hideous Laughter will now properly roll a saving throw with advantage when damaged
  • Fixed a case where characters would not become immune to Dragons' Frightful Presence after succeeding their saving throw
  • Fixed A Giant Step (Lost Valley) being stuck if you free Rugan after failing a Persuasion check
  • Fixed Grappled / Constricted conditions not being correctly removed if the character is forcefully moved (teleport / shove / etc). GET DOWN MISTER PRESIDENT!
  • You know how in most tactical games, flyings units take extra damage from bows? Well apparently, in Solasta flying units' weak point was... doors. They would INSTANTLY DIE if you close a door on their face instead of being shoved away. That should no longer be the case. The door meta is over, time to find another exploit against flying units. 
  • Fixed a rare case where Kindred Druids' pet would lose their damage bonus. C'mon they are already weak enough :(
  • Fixed a couple of animation delays that would occur in special circumstances with opportunity attacks, prone opponents etc.
  • Fixed an issue where The Prisoner (Lost Valley) could soft lock if you killed Orenetis prior to starting the quest
  • Failing to convince Orenetis in an important dialog towards the end of the game will trigger the battle as intended
  • Attacking Marin Ving at the end of the game will teleport Cafrain to the combat so he no longer blocks the fight by being out of reach
  • Fixed Oblivion Cleric's Herald of Pain's saving throw to trigger at the end of the enemy's turn instead of the beginning. 
  • Spells cast from inside a Globe of Invulnerability can longer be counterspelled from outside
  • Fixed crafted item disappearing if the crafter is over-encumbered when the crafting completes
  • Fixed being able to cast Black Tentacles in the air
  • Fixed not being able to leave Black Tentacles' area of effect after failing a saving throw once. What is it with you, Black Tentacles? Why are you causing so many problems?
  • Fixed some calculations which made certain spells range slightly lower than intended
  • Fixed Pass Without Trace missing from the Druid's spell list
  • Fixed a bug where Mardracht would be missing from his own cutscenes (wut?)

Multiplayer Fixes / Improvements (Free):

  • Fixed a bug where items could disappear when using "Loot All" if it would make the character over-encumbered
  • Fixed a desync that could occur when a player triggered fast travel while already moving through the blueprint
  • Fixed more desyncs that could occur when manipulating items in the inventory
  • Fixed a rare issue where the party could get stuck in a location if the host tried to leave the area exactly when another player started interacting with something else
  • Fixed another desync that could happen when giving items to the different factions
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent players from joining a lobby when the password was more than 20 characters. Wow those are some long passwords you got there.
  • Fixed a desync that could occur if a narrative sequence triggered while one person is still loading
  • Fixed a funny bug where if a shop is opened while you're checking another player's inventory, both character models would fuse into some nightmarish amalgamation. Ed...ward?
  • Fixed an item duplication exploit which could trigger when multiple players had their inventory open at the same time
  • Clicking on a player's position icon will now move the camera to them
  • Fixed pinging on controller sending multiple pings at once

Dungeon Maker Bug Fixes / Improvements (Free):

  • When playing Custom Campaigns, the game will now also auto-save after changing location / finishing a long rest (5 min cooldown)
  • Fixed the camera behaviour while in dialog in Custom Dungeons
  • It is no longer possible to name a Custom Monster with an existing internal monster name, which would cause other custom campaigns using the same monster to be hidden. That one took some time to find out, thanks to every creator involved!
  • Mana Lamps can now be set as on or off in the Dungeon Maker
  • Fixed loading screens between locations always being the same
  • Fixed an issue where a dialog could be stuck if no matching role was found within the party
  • Added many monsters that were previously hidden in the Dungeon Maker
  • Added many items that were previously hidden in the Dungeon Maker

Known Issues:

  • There is a long delay whenever quitting the Dungeon Maker before returning to the main menu.
  • The Kindred Spirit Druid has a bugged Spirit option with a weird name - do not pick it, it's a placeholder we'll remove in a hotfix!
  • Kindred Spirit's description text still show the old AC, HP and damage values instead of the buffed values
  • Some test characters we played with decided to stick around and made their way into the pregen category, they will be dealt with soon. Those characters are: Corthyn Dosa, Jane Storm, Iela Olfborn, and at higher levels the aptly named Lore08 Bardy and Hope08 Bardy. There are also 4 level 12 characters Burg Dormer, Esbery Dudley, John Guert and Ros Hasting that shouldn't be there because... well who's going to play with max level characters anway?
  • Monks don't get their bonus action attack when attacking while holding a torch. Apparently kicking with a torch in hand is not considered a Martial Art?
  • When picking up loot from the ground, you will often see the message "some items can't fit the inventory" - don't worry, that's a text bug. Unless your inventory is truly full, the items are actually picked up.

Alright folks, time for you head back into Solasta! If you're looking for people to play multiplayer co-op with, make sure to drop by our Discord Server to meet new friends!

Solasta is now available on Xbox One & Xbox Series X/S

Solasta is now available on Xbox One & Xbox Series X/S

Hey there folks!

Just dropping a quick news today to announce that Solasta: Crown of the Magister and its DLCs are now playable on Xbox One & Xbox Series X/S! Read below for more details.


F.A.Q.

How does Game Pass / Microsoft Store work between PC & Xbox?

Purchasing Solasta: Crown of the Magister and any DLC on the Microsoft Store makes them both available on PC and Xbox! The base game is also available via Game Pass on both PC & Xbox.

Are the DLCs available on Xbox?

Yes, all the DLCs can be purchased on Xbox.

Are the save files shared between PC Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass?

Yes, you can continue your PC playthrough on Xbox and vice versa

Is there Multiplayer Crossplay between PC & Xbox? What about Crossplatform between different Xbox consoles?

Yes, you can play multiplayer with Xbox (Xbox One to Xbox Series X/S) & PC players (Microsoft Store, Steam, GoG) & Mac players (Steam) in the same session!

Is the Dungeon Maker available on Xbox?

While you can download Dungeon Maker maps & campaigns from https://solasta.mod.io/ and play them on Xbox, you can't create custom content directly via the Dungeon Maker on Xbox. The Dungeon Maker was deemed too complex to adapt to pad control, so creating custom maps & campaigns is limited to the PC version for now.

Can I use the pad on PC now?

Not yet! There are many additional requirements before we can submit a pad-compatible version on PC, so it's not as simple as it may seem. 

Where can I get the Game / DLCs?

You can get it on the Xbox store here!

Dungeon Maker Upgrade (Free):

Dungeon Maker Additional Content (Lost Valley DLC required):

  • [Environments] Added 4 new environments from Lost Valley: Jungle, Swamp, Valley City & Valley Palace
  • [Monsters] Added new monsters from Lost Valley, such as Golems, Hags, Dryads etc...

General Improvements (Free):

  • You remember the one time that unlit torch on the wall succeeded its Dex Saving Throw against your Sacred Flame? Yea that's no longer possible, gadgets will now always fail their saving throw.
  • +1 and +2 versions of mauls, spears and crossbows are available at last! Now our dwarven weaponsmith will finally be able to go back to see their family.
  • Added Conjure Fey to the list of available spells. More creatures to summon! That couldn't possibly go wrong.
  • Damaged shared between the Druid and their Kindred Spirit is now shown in the combat log. Now you will no longer wonder when you lost all that health without ever being hit!
  • Redeemers now have a proper climbing animation instead of doing a UFO impersonation.
  • Druidic focus items can now be found in stores, druids rejoice! 
  • Flying units can now move through crawl spaces. You no longer need to cancel Fly to crawl through that little hole!

  • Added new textures to +1 and +2 Studded Leather Armors

General Bug Fixes (Free):

  • Fixed Druids not being granted Quest XP if they were in Wildshape form. I mean to be fair, how were the quest givers supposed to know they had to give a share of experience to that weird bear accompanying the party? 
  • Polished the jump and climb animations of Druids when in Bear form, which looked a little wonky.
  • Removed non-functional Eyebite scrolls from the game, and fixed the name of True Seeing, Freezing Sphere and Circle of Death scrolls.
  • Some monsters had wrong attack modifiers / AC and other values when compared with their attributes. Those little cheaters. Fixed.
  • Fixed some weapons not being properly oriented when held in characters' left hand. 
  • Wall of Thorns now properly deal slashing damage instead of piercing damage. Why? BECAUSE THAT'S IN THE BOOK, THAT'S WHY.
  • Fixed the crafting panel not showing everything properly when multiple items finished crafting at the same time.
  • Soraks and Werewolves now properly get disadvantage on their saves against Moonbeam. Because that's what the spell's good against. Shapeshifters. 
  • Fixed Kindred Spirit's stats being based on the Druid's animal form if summoned while Wildshaped.
  • Spike Growth no longer affect flying creatures. Because everyone knows Flying-type creatures are immune to Ground Attacks.
  • Fixed Brutal Critical not using the versatile damage die when relevant. 
  • Fixed conjured creatures sometimes appearing as "Unknown" because their own caster was too dumb to know what they summoned.
  • Accidently dragging and dropping an item to the same slot it was already in no longer consumes your action.
  • Elves and Half-Elves just remembered that Hypnotic Pattern is considered a Charm Effect and that they should have advantage to saves against that spell.
  • Action Surge can longer be used when incapacitated as the only thing it allowed you to do was twice the amount of nothing. 
  • The DM has started to keep track of magic item charges, players can thus no longer keep using magic items while out of charges.
  • After re-reading the rules for the hundredth time, the DM also realized that using a spell scroll should prevent the caster to cast a bonus action spell in the same turn. No cheating!
  • Multiple damage resistances / damage vulnerabilities of the same type no longer stack.
  • Cancelling a proxy action with the Escape Key will now correctly refund the action.
  • Fixed Uncanny Accuracy sometimes not working properly for Ranged Weapons and Ranged Magic Attacks.
  • Wand of Winter now correctly casts Ice Storm instead of Blight and Wand of Blight now correctly casts Blight instead of Ice Storm. 
  • Flaming Sphere now correctly gets upcasted when casted by a Shock Arcanist
  • Fixed some high level features / spells such as Volley or Eyebite not triggering battles when used on unsuspected enemies. What was that? Must have been the wind. 
  • Fixed Barbarian's rage resistance not correctly working against magical slashing, bludgeoning and piercing damage. 
  • Fixed Protection from Evil which was working regardless of the enemy creature type. Should have been named Protection from Pretty Much Everything.
  • Fixed Calm Emotion not working properly on allies.
  • Fixed pre-made Barbarian Preka somehow possessing the Protection Fighting Style. This change only applies if you delete your existing Preka character file from the folder though.
  • Fixed Ogres throwing their mace instead of their javelins. I mean granted Ogres are stupid, but not THAT stupid.
  • Fixed Hunter's Mark working with Magic Missile, turning any enemy into swiss cheese.
  • Fixed Detect Magic not properly requiring Concentration.
  • Fixed Arcane Fury not being properly applied to Sunbeam.
  • Fixed Staff of Healing not granting the caster ability bonus that it should.
  • Fixed Pendant of the Healer being permanently stuck at zero charge. Surprisingly the players did not find this as funny as the DM did. 
  • Fixed concentration spells breaking when Druids would lose their Wildshape form.
  • Fixed Wildshaped Druids sometimes become completely undetectable by enemies when stealth.
  • Fixed Magic Weapon being able to target magical weapons, which did absolutely NOTHING. YOU LOSE. GOOD DAY SIR!
  • Fixed any buff / debuff being instantly dispelled the moment the party entered the world map, instead of running its normal duration.
  • Fixed Scrolls sometimes not being usable by casters even though they were part of their domain / oath spell list.
  • Goodberries can no longer be cast on the world map if the casting conditions aren't met (such as not having a focus equipped) 
  • Fixed Preserve Life being able to target creatures above 50% HP even though it only worked on creatures below 50% HP
  • Fixed being able to cast Levitate or Fly on already flying creatures.
  • Fixed grapple characters sometimes not being released from the grapple even after the creature's death. Damn those Remorhaz have strong jaws.
  • Fixed Chain Lightning not prioritizing enemies when seeking additional targets. Melee classes rejoice.
  • Fixed moving an enemy up or down with Levitate being a free action, leading to very fun tactics such as the "Deep Fryer" where the caster would repeatedly dunk an enemy in and out of damaging area spells such as Wall of Thorns. 
  • Fixed a few cases where an enemy would freeze in combat for several seconds before starting to act again. 
  • Fixed... oh lord that one is pretty bad. Fixed the Surprise System in the World Map being inverted. Basically what used to happen is that if your party rolled better than the monsters, you would end up surprised instead - and vice-versa, monsters would end up surprised if they rolled better than the party. This is why late game when your party's perception score became higher and higher you would end up getting surprised more and more often - even more if you were traveling at a slow pace. 
  • Fixed a few cases where enemies would run back and forth like headless cockatrices 
  • Fixed dwarves holding crossbows wrong. Don't ask me why, apparently they just didn't know how to properly hold their crossbow. Must have skipped crossbow holding classes.
  • Removed Large Monster repellent from stairs which made Large Monsters unable to walk up and down stairs in the past
  • Creatures will now play their idle animation after their emote in the bestiary to avoid excessive movement while looking at their stats.
  • Unconscious characters no longer have the right to roll perception against characters in stealth.
  • Fixed Berserkers being permanently in Reckless mode. Yes they be angry, but everyone needs to chill out from time to time.
  • Fixed Gold Dragons not being immune to fire. What is this travesty?!
  • Fixed Druids and Sorcerers previously not being able to use Wand of Lightning Bolt
  • Fixed Spiritual Weapon action remaining visible even after being used during the turn.
  • Fixed Heat Metal adding a duplicate condition every time it was reapplied, granting the target a nice garland of Heat Metal icons on their profile.
  • Fixed Heroism being able to target enemies.
  • Fixed the Dodge button sometimes remaining visible even after being used.
  • Fixed Black Tentacles previously not requiring concentration.
  • Fixed Guiding Bolt not showing any visible light on the target, even though it provides dim light. 
  • Fixed a rare freeze that could happen if a character that is already dying receives more than their max HP in damage in a single strike.
  • Fixed an exploit where Paladins could use an infinite amount of level 1 slots for free smites. You get a smite! And you get a smite! Everyone gets a smite!
  • Fixed Protection from Energy lasting 24h instead of a single hour.
  • Fixed casting spells from scrolls sometimes not taking into account the caster's spellcasting attribute. 
  • Fixed being able to kill your computer when casting multiple unoptimized Faerie Fire. Since Revivify don't work on computers, we decided to optimize Faerie Fire instead.
  • Fixed not being able to cast Acid Splash on adjacent enemies if one of them is large.
  • Fixed not being able to mark Brightwall Shield as a focus
  • Fixed being able to interact with invisible statues during a certain fight which may or may not involve a dragon in CotM

  • Full item name will now appear as tooltip when hovering items in chests
  • Activator plates will now be highlighted when Alt is pressed
  • Disabled gadgets no longer highlight when pressing Alt
  • Fixed an issue where traps would not activate properly
  • Fixed an issue that could happen when merchant inventories contained no items
  • Fixed an issue that happened where multiple campaign shared the same name
  • Fixed Cabinets not having collision
  • Fixed Custom Saving Throws & Ability Checks display
  • Fixed an issue where some housing props were not properly aligned in the "Town" environment
  • Fixed all lootpacks showing "CR 0"

Known Issues:

  • If you get the following error message when trying to start a Multiplayer Campaign "Error loading: Could not recover the necessary multiplayer information from other players", make sure to check your computer's clock time. If it's not synchronized properly with real time the security token generated may be invalid, thus locking you out of playing online.
  • There's an exploit where you can recruit a very important character (prisoner) too early during the DLC campaign, which makes the game go a little banana if it happens.
  • Under certain conditions, the end game cutscene only partially plays out (missing a part) and you will be stuck on a black screen instead of going back to the main menu (you will still be considered having completed the game).
  • In a certain boss fight, if the combat doesn't end because a guard is still fighting but you can't find him, he's hidden in a room and you will need to loot the key on the corpse the boss before opening that room.
  • Do not add characters such as / or \ in your character's name, it will render the character file invalid.
  • Borrowed Luck (Mischief Domain) can be used even when rolling a saving throw with disadvantage
  • Elusive Target (Mischief Domain) can sometimes last an additional round
  • The area covered by Vengeful Spirits (Haunted Soul) cannot be crossed by player characters

Make sure to drop by to check out Solasta Multiplayer a day before the Beta starts!


Solasta Multiplayer Co-op Beta Weekend starting March 17th

From Thursday March 17th at 8 am PDT / 11 am EDT / 4 pm CET to Monday March 21st 4 am PDT / 7 am EDT / 12 pm CET, a Beta Branch will be available on Steam with Online Multiplayer mode activated.


Tell your friends, boot up the game and enjoy some quality time beating up Soraks together!

Here is what you can expect from this Beta version:

  • Multiplayer works on the official Crown of the Magister Campaign and Custom Campaigns from the Dungeon Maker. However, Custom Dungeons (not campaigns) are not available in Multiplayer, but it is fairly easy to convert a dungeon into a campaign (we will put up a how-to guide to help newer dungeon creators).
  • You can play with friends all over the world, however if you do not live in the same region as the host you will need to select their region when looking for the lobby room.
  • All DLC content is synced with what the host owns, meaning that if they have Primal Calling all players in their game will be able to create Druids and Barbarians. However, that also means a player with Primal Calling won't be able to play a Barbarian if their host doesn't have the DLC. 
  • There will still be some desynchronizations - which is when something goes wrong and suddenly player A and player B no longer see the same things (for instance, player A rolls a 12 but player B sees them rolling 5 instead). When this happens, the host simply needs to save and reload that save to continue playing together.
  • Note: Multiplayer will be fully released as a free update to all players on April 14th, when the Lost Valley DLC comes out.
  • Note: There is no LAN mode, Multiplayer is online only.

On the day the Multiplayer Co-op Branch goes live on Steam, we will also be posting several guides on how to switch to the Beta Branch, how to Create / Join a lobby in Multiplayer, how to convert a Custom Dungeon into a Custom Campaign, and lastly what to do in case of desyncs.


Lost Valley DLC available on April 14th


Welcome to Lost Valley, a seemingly idyllic yet isolated enclave ruled by the benevolent (?) Orenetis

Available on April 14th, the Lost Valley DLC is a brand new level 1 to 12 campaign that will take your party into the lands of the Dominion. This remote place long forgotten by all is ruled with an iron fist by the tyrant Orenetis, but the arrival of your adventurers will light a fuse under this political powder keg.

This adventure features:

  • A replayable non linear story, as you are the one deciding which faction to side with in order to escape the Valley
  • New foes to face, with iconic monsters such as Giants, Hags and Golems who will try to turn your party into mush
  • New subclasses, one for each of the nine existing classes in Solasta
  • Play Lost Valley co-op with up to 4 players when it comes out, as all official campaigns are co-op compatible! 

9 New Subclasses:

  • The Commander, Fighters who can bolster their allies both offensively and defensively in the middle of combat.
  • The Hoodlum, Rogues who rely on intimidation and brute force to get what they want.
  • The Oath of Judgment, held by Paladins who seek to purge corruption and deliver justice wherever they go.
  • The Mischief Domain, granted to Clerics of Misaye who always seem blessed with good luck.
  • The Court Mage, elite Wizards who are masters at protecting others with their arcane powers.
  • The Swift Blade, silent and deadly Rangers whose purpose is to assassinate high priority targets.
  • The Haunted Soul, Sorcerers with symbiotic relationships to malevolent spirits, granting them horrifying magic.
  • The Path of Claw (Primal Calling DLC required), Barbarians with powerful dragon-like abilities.
  • The Circle of Balance (Primal Calling DLC required), Druids who are adept at both granting life and taking it away.

New Dungeon Maker content:

  • Four new environments: Jungle (outdoor), Swamp (outdoor), Valley Palace (indoor), Valley City (outdoor)
  • New monsters: Monsters from Lost Valley will be available to use in the Dungeon Maker
  • [FREE] New Quest System: Add quests to your Custom Adventures to give players specific objectives and reward them with experience and items!
  • [FREE] New Dialog System: Give your Custom Adventures more charm and lore by adding multi-choice dialogs with NPCs!
  • [FREE] New Custom Loot Table System: Create your own loot tables for chests and monsters to control what the players get!

Happy 2022, Community Stream incoming Jan 13th!

Happy 2022, Community Stream incoming Jan 13th!

Hello everyone!

The Tactical Adventures crew and I wish y'all the best for 2022, may your dice always roll well. We're also going to do a little Dev Stream next week on Thursday January 13th at 9 am PST / 12 pm EST / 6 pm CET with the usual banter about Solasta, game development, fun facts while checking out some Custom Dungeons from the Steam Workshop - it's been too long since we did one of those! 


There be hints for the next DLC in this image. Happy hunting.



If you don't want to miss the stream, make sure you follow us on Twitch!


By the way, quick news for our Kickstarter Backers! Both the Sourcebooks and the Adventure Boxes are now being transported from the factories to the EU & US warehouses, where they will be packaged and sent to each of you individually. That said, remember that in the current state of the world this can still take quite a bit of time, so we're hoping that by end of February everyone gets their goodies - but we'll keep you in the loop as soon as we have more information to share.


Alright folks, this is the end for today! See you on Jan 13th for the Dev Stream, and don't hesitate to prepare a few questions for us! Thank you for reading, and don't hesitate to drop by our Forums or our Discord Server.

Our Team

The founder, Mathieu Girard, was co-founder of Amplitude Studios. For Tactical Adventures, he has gathered a team of experienced industry veterans, all with experience from major publishers or indie studios.

Brought together by our shared expertise and passionate about making games, we plan to remain a small studio of 15 to 20 people, efficient and focused on creating great games with powerful narratives.

We are all big fans of board games and tabletop role playing games, and the objective of Tactical Adventures is to design a unique experience on computers and consoles. Supported by experienced partners, we are a united and ambitious team.

Our Mission

Our goal is to recreate the feel of a tabletop RPG onscreen, through the faithful adaptation of rules and universes.

While computer RPGs have existed for almost 40 years, the technology has progressed, new forms of interaction have been invented, and Tactical Adventures has created some critical evolutions in computer RPG mechanics, which will bring the interactive experience as close to that of a tabletop RPG as possible.
