I have received feedback that reported close to 25 hours.
It is also an open world, non linear adventure so a lot depends on how much a player chooses to explore and complete. It is definitely several hours worth of playtime.

Wow, that must have been an incredible amount of work. Much larger than I expected. Can't wait.

Thank you. This is a pretty large campaign, and although I have not timed a complete playthrough, I have received feedback that reported close to 25 hours. It is also an open world, non linear adventure so a lot depends on how much a player chooses to explore and complete. It is definitely several hours worth of playtime.


I played the iceblink version one year ago or so, it was far from complete and i didn't even complete all the content available then and my playtime was over 20 hours already (22 from memory).
The module probably plays faster in KotC 2 engine, still, i suspect it's even longer if you take your time thoroughly exploring every corner and completing every single quest.

Thanks, that is good to know. It seems 20 or more hours is a fair estimate, depending on playstyle. I've noticed that combat is more challenging, which is to be expected, with all the additional abilities and maneuvers available to enemies.

Yes, you can play with tokens. What will happen is some of the NPCs in the game who I used the old Knights of the Chalice Sprites, will then show as square pictures instead. But your characters will be able to use whatever tokens you like.

Here is an example. Notice how there are 4 NPCs who show up using the framed icons, when you select to play with tokens. But the party in the center of the map have the circle tokens that come with the game.

I uploaded a new video to showcase Hearkenwold as an Adventure Module for Knights of the Chalice 2. In this encounter, the party stumbles across a clandestine meeting among gem traders, and they are not welcome.

I appreciate the shout-out in the latest 1.15 update!

The video above, when I was editing it, I realize I saved it as a smaller resolution. Sorry about that. Here is another encounter that I recorded afterward, which plays at a higher resolution.
