The two cargo ships were reported missing a week ago and were still overdue to dock in Ramsgate and unload their precious haul. Scouts dispatched to find them returned with their rigging in tatters, hulls still pocked with shards of ice, and their crews hanging by a thread.

Welcome to Ramsgate

Welcome to Ramsgate

It isn’t the best place for a city; rugged mountains, fierce winds, and rain more often than not. But it is home. Ramsgate is the furthest settlement and best endeavor to make a beachhead into behemoth territory. The only way to win this fight is to take it to the behemoths. Artisans, merchants, and warriors from all over…

Dauntless Founder's Packs

Dauntless Founder's Packs

Some arrived armed to the teeth, others carried what might pass for swords in poor light. They came in groups, or one by one; banded together in guilds ready to make a name for themselves. Scarred visages belied hard-learned lessons as they mingled with fresh, pensive faces. Loud hollers, careful scheming, gallows humor, rallying cries.…

Arkan Drew saw the slayer sprinting toward him, wide-eyed and breathless. She shoved the core into his hands before he had even finished saying hello. He was startled for a moment, but soon realized why she was so excited. The core was buzzing with energy. Whatever it had soaked up on the frontier after her…

The usually bustling docks of Ramsgate fell still, every eye tracking the slayer striding toward the town square. The sun gleamed upon his armour; brilliant crimson with a deep onyx inlay. A shoulder guard carved from a gargantuan horn, gauntlets capped with cruel claws, and a full helm crowned with brilliant red feathers. Few on…

The slayer leaned against the starboard railing of the airship, the wind of the open sky rushing against her face. She preferred to hunt alone, but the Grey Sails had put out the call. Originally, they had met while taking down a particularly ferocious Shrowd that was stalking the frontier, when they were just four…

Thank You Pax South

Hundreds of slayers rallied to the call at PAX South last weekend and challenged the elusive Shrike and bone-crushing Pangar.

We’ve been working on Dauntless for over two years. Two years of laughter, late nights, and a bottomless well of coffee. It can be tricky taking the first step, and sharing something you’ve spent so much time on. Phoenix Labs was incredibly fortunate, and we were able to take part in an awesome night of…

Welcome to Dauntless

Welcome to Dauntless

What does it take to become a slayer? Some will tell you that it’s courage. Picking yourself up after getting mauled and beaten. Running headlong into the deadly unknown time after time. Going beyond the frontier without looking back. Others say it’s grit. Never settling for good enough. Digging for anything that could give you…

The Behemoths of Dauntless

“We heard it bellow across the island, lightning striking in the distance. The men were shaken to their core, for they had no idea what we were up against. We had all heard the rumours of a behemoth that could breathe lightning. The thunder shaking our bones confirmed our worst fears. “The men broke for…

The aethersmith is closing up shop as you walk up, having just come from the dock. “Little late to be getting back from the frontier, isn’t it?” he smiles, wiping sweat from his brow. “Too late to fire up the forge at any rate. Swing by tomorrow and show me what you found.” He turns…

The raucous sound of celebration booms inside the Ramsgate Tavern. Everyone is cheering and raising glasses to the slayers who bagged a behemoth that had claimed the lives of a sky ship crew. The heroes tell their tale of their hunt; tracking the beast, narrowly dodging death at every turn, and going in for the…

You’re just steps away when you hear the thunder, see the lightning surge within the behemoth’s gut. Energy crackles across its scaly hide as terrible claws clutch the rocky ground. You move faster, dodging as the monster unleashes a scream of charged aether that sears your face as it passes. Ears pounding and skin stinging,…
