Looking for that item that links the Underworld to Shroud of the Avatar? Well, here it is. The Dark Elven Kinsman Buckler is now available as an add-on in both games. It’s a mere $5 or if you pledge at the $200 level within Underworld, it will come as a free bonus.

The funding is going exceptionally well for both games, but there is still a ways to go for Underworld. It’s so close, but close isn’t quite good enough. If you haven’t pledged, jump on over and add a few bucks to the pot. And I’d love to see us move past the $700k goal and get the Mac and Linux versions. Just like SotA, this needs to be available on multiple platforms.


This buckler, inscribed with the Dark Elven symbol, has a moonstone gem inset. If a player owns the buckler in both Shroud of the Avatar and Underworld Ascendant, then the moonstone will glow with the warmth of kinship. This signifies that the Dark Elven clans, though sundered between distant worlds, still are one.

The Dark Elves of the Stygian Abyss are long sundered from their kinsman in the distant lands of the Shroud of the Avatar. This ‘Kinsman’ buckler has a solitary moonstone that will glow with the warmth of kinship if held by kin in both worlds. For any Backers who get a Kinsman Buckler in both games, theirs will glow as well. Even without the glow, this is a finely-crafted buckler that is agile to use, and offers effective protection considering its small size.
