Nova Aetas: Erfolgreicher Neustart bei Kickstarter
Nachdem die erste Kampagne zur Finanzierung des Brettspiels Nova Aeatas im Herbst abgebrochen wurde, war der Neustart erfolgreich.
Nova Aetas is a tabletop miniatures wargame set in an alternative Renaissance world.
Inspired by classic Japanese tactical RPGs such as ‚Final Fantasy Tactics‘ and ‚Tactics Ogre‘, in Nova Aetas you will battle enemies controlled by a sophisticated Artificial Intelligence. With every challenge you will be presented with meaningful choices that will change the course of game events. To ensure an engaging game experience we have opted for high quality materials and the use of highly detailed miniatures.
4 miniatures of the heroes
46 miniatures of the enemies:
5 Papal Guards
8 Swiss Guards
8 Slavic mercenaries
5 Mercenaries with crossbow
3 Faun Musician
5 Centaur archers
5 six-sided dice
5 eight-sided dice
5 ten-sided dice
1 double-sided game board
Cardboard 3D scenery:
2 Fir Trees
2 Oak Trees
2 Buildings (2×4 squares, double-sided to make two different buildings)

Modular Campaign – A linked campaign, comprising more than 30 scenarios, which will develop differently each time you play, depending on the decisions made by your party and the outcome of your adventures. The overall campaign can conclude with any of three different endings!
Three Game Modes:
1 – Single Player: Select your Free Company by choosing which characters you want to send on a mission.
2 – Co-operative: Team up with your friends to overcome all the the challenges of the full campaign.
3 – Competitive: Face off against the Free Companies of other players to prove your valour.
Innovative Activation System – The Horlogium (Game clock) provides an action management system based on the passage of time, providing you with dynamic and exciting game sessions.
No Game Master Required – Each enemy has its own Artificial intelligence (AI), determining its actions on the battlefield. Events and actions performed by the heroes will also affect the behaviour of enemies, causing changes in their priorities.
Increase your level of Mastery. Let your Free Company grow – as your campaign progresses your characters will evolve by acquiring experience. Beginning with four base classes you will customize your characters, with a wealth of possibilities to choose from, as you develop them through the course of their career. With a total of 28 available classes you will have many possible combinations to make your Free Company unique. Furthermore, over the course of this Kickstarter campaign it is our goal to unlock unique miniatures for each of the 28 classes!

Crafting System. Create your own equipment – Between missions you will use objects found on the battlefield, or the corpses of your vanquished enemies, to create fantastic new equipment for your characters!
The setting of Nova Aetas is an important part of the game and the artists have determined to get a great blend of fantasy and real-world Renaissance elements. With this concept in mind, each model has been designed with the goal of giving a subtly darker fantasy appearance that is still recognizable as Renaissance Italy. These highly detailed models will really bring the world of Nova Aetas to life!
Our primary goal is to produce Nova Aetas as a boxed game that will include everything you need to play the first series of adventures. But the world of Nova Aetas does not end there! With your support, we have prepared many stretch goals that will unlock a unique series of special characters to include in your campaigns, that we think you will find surprising! On top of that, we have plans for a number of different expansions that will add new challenges, new hero classes and new enemies to face… and this is just the beginning!
