Chronicle City Announce Dungeonslayers!

By on 12 March 2012



Chronicle City is very pleased to announce a partnership with Uhrwerk Verlag of Germany to bring you the English language release of the award-nominated ‘Dungeonslayers’ – an old-fashioned roleplaying game by Christian Kennig. Dungeonslayers is an old school level-based fantasy game with a modern rules set behind it. The rules are only about ten pages long making it a very easy game to pick up and start playing.

Dungeonslayers was originally released as a small free download back in November 2008. The 4th Edition was released in an expanded, revised and professional printed edition in Germany in October 2010 at Spiel Essen (a four-day gathering of 150,000 gamers). True to its roots Dungeonslayers IV was also made available free as a PDF, which is something Chronicle City & Uhrwerk will be doing with the English language edition too. The free PDF certainly hasn’t hindered sales of the physical book with the first German print run selling out in five months!

The game will be supported by adventures, a campaign setting and regional & racial sourcebooks as well as a number of free PDF adventures for gamers that store and convention organisers can also use for demos of Dungeonslayers. There is also a soundtrack CD in development which will also include a booklet with an exclusive mini-adventure in it!
You can already download a ten-page preview of the English rules, character sheet, starting spells and talents lists, along with a number of one-page ‘Dungeon 2 Go’ adventures (covering a variety of levels) on the English language Dungeonslayer website (

The game has also recently been released in Italian through Wild Boar Edizioni srl.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar "Living" campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave's first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft). Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at
