New Kickstarter Will Add 3D Printed Elden Ring-Style Fog Gates To Your D&D Campaign

The promising new Kickstarter Calling Portals can bring the magic of Souls-style fog gates to your D&D campaign.


Tabletop RPGs are a time-intensive hobby, with some gamemasters spending hours setting up the perfect virtual or physical map for the climax of the D&D session. If you're looking to add a little more pizzaz to your sessions, one Kickstarter will sell you a 3D-printed portal that lets you make your own fog gates, and the effect is pretty impressive.

Black Scrolls Games is one of many companies that sells 3D-printed terrain pieces for D&D campaigns, which are intended for use with grid-based combat, or to simply give your players an idea of the battlefield. However, this Kickstarter also includes portal pieces that hold your phone, which allows you to make a swirling gate effect, or even the fog gates made famous by FromSoftware's Souls series. They can even be used horizontally for a witch's cauldron effect. However, you'll need a 3D printer to make these, so make sure you know that before you back it.

Now Playing: Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves Official Trailer

"Act 1" of the Kickstarter includes almost a dozen portals that can be used in various configurations, including one with a pond effect that drains to reveal a dungeon entrance beneath. Very nifty. Act 2 includes at least 4 more, including a particularly impressive tree portal called Summoned Souls. While these pieces aren't necessary for a great D&D campaign, they'll definitely have an effect on your party if you're a GM who pays particular attention to presentation. Backers who commit $45 or more will receive the full set in 3D printer format.

In other D&D news, Wizards of the Coast recently attempted to change some key aspects of the OGL, the agreement that defines the relationship between D&D owner Wizards of the Coast and third-party content creators. However, Wizards eventually abandoned the changes due to intensely negative feedback from players and sellers. The Dungeons & Dragons movie, Honor Among Thieves, releases on March 31.
