Wicked Ones: War for the Overworld



Welcome back, Underlord! You do have the most impeccable timing. The wretched “goddess” Kira has finally misstepped and left herself vulnerable! Naturally, we must strike while the iron glows hot. Make ready, my old champion… There are souls to carve.  - Mendechaus

This is a campaign guide for playing in Kairos, the world of War for the Overworld video game. You take on the role of upper-level minions serving an Underlord, building a dungeon, and fighting your way towards the surface. 

80 pages | 6×9″ Well-Bookmarked/Hyperlinked PDF (Softcover Coming Soon!) | Color Interior

➤ This is a campaign guide for WICKED ONES: FREE EDITION or WICKED ONES: DELUXE EDITION, which are required to play this!


Even for those who are not familiar with the War for the Overworld video game, this campaign guide has a lot to offer including new rules, a map. Also, as with Wicked Ones Deluxe Edition, all graphics in the book have been converted to high quality tokens and figures for VTT play and do-it-yourself printing. The campaign itself and the factions are well described within the book, which makes for great inspiration even without experience playing WFTO.

● A new sandbox map, Mount Desmos, with a detailed scenario focusing on underground raids before bursting forth into the Overworld.
● An alternate history. The story you tell throughout this campaign is an alternate history, a different version of the events that transpired within War for the Overworld, the video game this campaign guide is based on. Years prior to the beginning of the campaign, Mendechaus tracked Kira to the world of Kairos where her followers had set up a mighty Empire. He invaded Kairos with his Underlord minions and waged a devastating war against the Empire. However, due to the impressive leadership of Emperor Uther the Great and the usage of an artifact of power from Kira called the Aum, Mendechaus and his Underlords were handed an embarrassing defeat.
● Underlords, powerful spirits from the Aether, leading your dungeon. They're a single character shared by the entire group and can cast spells and compel their minions towards action. Their abilities replace the core function of a dungeon.
● A dungeon core at the center of your dungeon. Located on the first level, it replaces the sanctum and second level of the dungeon. Defend it well, because if it falls, your Underlord is banished from the realm.
● Shrines and portals littering the Underworld, discovered while tunneling to the edges of the map to go on raids.
● 12 beasts from WFTO to serve your dungeon as creatures and a new way to bring them along on raids with you when necessary.
● 3 powerful titans that can be summoned by acquiring the Kenos artifact and finishing a tier 3 ritual. Each titan has its own unique bonus.
● 10 unit archetypes and new primal abilities to build WFTO-style PCs with.
● 15 heroes of the Empire, adventurers strongly connected to the factions within and around Mount Desmos.
● Active participation in dungeon defense by the PCs, who make a placement roll as an invasion occurs just like their minions do. Once you become aware of the invasion, you are free to move about the dungeon making invasions much more chaotic and dynamic.
● The Dungeoneer's Guide to the Underworld, an in-world field guide for the evil and good units in War for the Overworld written by Brightrock Games. This was previously available to those that bought the Underlord Edition of the game, but has been made available for inclusion with this supplement to give GMs and players way more background information on the denizens of Kairos.





Brightrock Games released a PDF detailing the units of both good and evil sides in the the game, with great artwork and evocative detailing of each, as well as explaining more of the history of Kairos. We have adapted the Dungeoneer's Guide into a 6x9" format and placed it in the book!

Hey, sorry for the late reply! I didn't get a notification for this one.

Please e-mail DTRPG support with your query. Nothing I can do on my end.

Yep! I reformatted it to fit onto the 6x9" book size but it prints very nicely.

Just feels weird that such a big expansion has no reviews of anybody to know if this is worth the price of admission , seeing as wicked ones itself has many reviews this makes it look shady or not vetted , could just be bad luck

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
