Enter the Dungeon

What is Dungeon Fodder?

by definition, a dungeon is a poorly maintained kennel for all sorts of monsters. Amazingly, treasure seems an abundant fixture in such places and adventurers throng dungeons in hope of making off with an enchanted sword or some silly bauble.

Fodder on the other hand, is food used to feed livestock. This could comprise of hay, straw, oats and grains which no self-respecting carnivore would touch. The term fodder also refers to something which is worth close to nothing. Something so worthless that to sacrifice it, would bring no sense of loss whatsoever.

Here is a quote ripped off wikipedia, “Cannon fodder is an informal term for military personnel who are regarded or treated as expendable in the face of enemy fire.”

Putting the two words together, you get a really expendable person whose life is worth less than a handful of barley having to journey deep into a dungeon to survive by making sure no one else does…

fun? I’m not sure…

Anyways, Dungeon Fodder is a board-game I’m putting together during my free time.

It is to be played between 2 – 6 players, DF puts you in the shoes of one such adventurer trapped in a dungeon forced to battle his way to be the last man standing (or woman!). The trick to defeating your foes is to use not only your natural abilities but also the environment (dungeon) as a weapon.

As of now, there are only 3 classes in development and 2 play modes which are still being adjusted to maintain a semblance of balance in the game.

More on the game later!…

Setting up

After months of mucking about, the website is finally up! Instead of trying to bend a website to fulfill my finicky needs, I’ve decided to just drop designing the thing from scratch and opt to use WordPress instead and build it up from there.

A content development company without a website is indeed a poor sight therefore here it is! The new Synergy Lab web presence where all news pertaining to the development of our projects would be carefully archived here for the benefit of future generations.

Stay tuned as I try to figure out how to make a living peddling games.
