The Lore Store is an in-game store in For The King that can be accessed from the game's main menu.

Description

LoreStoreStoreMeter.png
The Lore Store

The Lore Store has a variety of special unlocks, including new playable characters and custom skins, helpful map encounters, and unique and powerful items. Using Lore that has been accumulated from previous playthroughs, items can be purchased and unlocked for use in future campaigns.

Lore

The Lore icon.

Lore is a form of currency in For The King. It can be obtained by collecting a Book of Lore during a campaign. Books of Lore are awarded for a variety of reasons, including current campaign story progression, by defeating certain enemies or completing quests, and by participating in random encounters.

The amount of Lore currently collected is shown in the upper right corner of the Lore Store screen.

Unlocking Items

At the start of the game, not all items will be unlocked for purchase. Triggering specific unlock requirements during a campaign will allow these items to be purchased from the store for play. Newly unlocked items and encounters can appear retroactively in any current saved games, however Locations will only apply to newly created campaigns (as a result of the Overworld map's being generated at the beginning of a game).

In a multiplayer game, Lore Store unlocks from each individual player apply. Thus, if Player A has Alluring Pools, and Player B has Dark Carnival, both locations have a chance to appear in-game. This applies to items as well. Characters and character skins are not shared between players.

Lore Store unlocks are no longer shared between accounts on the same computer.

Additional Notes

Resetting Lore

Resetting the Lore Store will cause you to lose all unlocked items in the store (not tied to special achievements) and it will return your Lore count to 0. This includes your current campaign, as well as any saved games.

Seasonal unlocks

There are a variety of customization items that are only unlocked for purchase (with Lore) for a limited period of time, usually during an associated calendar holiday season (such as the Festivus items at Christmastime). The developers will also occasionally make items available for special events or announcements, but there is no specific schedule. If a new seasonal item is available for unlock in the Lore Store, the usual notification will appear in the game's main menu.

Rubbish

Items collected during a campaign that have not been unlocked in the Lore Store will be indicated with the Rubbish tag, and cannot be used until the unlock requirements have been met and the item purchased in the store.

Unlocking the golden gun

The Golden Gun was, in the past, unlocked by finding and defeating a single Gold Leprechaun. As of October 2021, the game's files now indicate that players must find and defeat a Treasure Boat in order to unlock the gun. It is interesting to note the Treasure Ship is crewed by 3 Gold Leprechauns.

Transferring lore between Steam and Epic

See also: Troubleshooting

In the IronOak For The King directory (see below), there is a profile folder for Steam, and another folder for Epic. Simply rename the file from either folder that you want to replace (don't delete it, in case something goes wrong), and copy over the file you want. When you launch the game from either platform, it will prompt you to upload to the cloud, or download from the cloud. Select the "upload to cloud" option, and you'll have all your lore goodies from the other platform's save when you launch!
