Carnevale is a tactical narrative miniatures game set in 1790’s Venice. Safe from the effects of the Rent in the Sky that tore Italy in half, Venice is now a hot-spot of magical activity. Strange creatures rise from the canals, the ruling class play violent games with lesser men, and the population of Venice try to survive. All vie for power in the street fights that take place in the dark of the night.
Carnevale is a game that focuses on movement and brutal combat. You’re as likely to see two people battling in the streets as you are to see warriors jumping from rooftop to rooftop and drowning their opponents in the canals. Using the tight streets and watery dangers to your advantage will ensure victory, and if it doesn’t, some well-timed magic spells might!
Carnevale is a narrative game that sees gamers play through various scenarios with their gangs of fighters. The games skirmishes allow for in depth storytelling, and we have made an effort to streamline rules in order to let the action take place on the tabletop, rather than spending too much time keeping track in the pages of a rulebook. The tactical flexibility opens up when building your gangs how you want, using many varied members to different effect.

Since the Rent opened The Guild have been working to protect the working people of Venice. Previously the shadowy members of the Thieves Guild, they have opened their doors to keep the citizenry safe. Of course, this protection comes at a price, and those that don’t pay it… well there are lots of disappearances in Venice, who’s going to miss one more person?
The Guild work to overwhelm their enemies with numbers, using multiple citizens to support their specialists, and led to battle by the enigmatic and acrobatic Capodecina. The Guild need to work together to protect themselves, striking in numbers to defeat any foe.
It’s a good bet to say that if there is a monster roaming the streets at night, it will be one of the many creatures of the Rashaar. Summoned by a Magi-Rashaar or members of the Cult of Dagon, the Ugdru, Radru, and Agalope all consume and consort with the cult’s members, becoming stronger or transforming cultists into new monstrous hybrids.
The Rashaar are a faction heavily invested in both magic and monsters, with the most mages and the toughest characters in the game, the Rashaar have a multitude of play styles.
The Doctors of the Ospedale:
Originally built as a mental institution, the Ospedale dei mente Santa Maria dei Senzatetto now serves a much more sinister purpose. Using the insane to power their magics and technologies, The Doctors quickly burn out the minds of their unfortunate charges, necessitating the need to stalk the streets and bring in the homeless and needy to the dark and bloody dungeons of the Ospedale.
The Doctors make heavy use of special attacks and abilities, channelling the power from their madmen to boost them. With lots of specialists the Doctors are able to tailor their gang to deal with almost any threat, just as long as they keep their madmen alive.
Wealth, power, arrogance. Few words describe the patricians more, the ruling class of Venice spend their days gambling and attending parties. By night the nobles roam the streets looking for a fight, flanked by other nobles and their attendants. The patricians only care about a good time. If that involves killing unfortunate citizens on the street in the dead of night, so be it.
The Patricians are an expensive faction, but get what they pay for. Each character is individually strong, and more of their characters are able to pick the weapons they are equipped with than any other faction. With more possibilities of ranged weapons you can play to the Patrician’s defensive strengths.
Originally the recipient of the Herald’s knowledge, members of the Vatican transcribed many magics before having him assassinated. This would cause a great shift in the church as the assassination caused the great Rent in the Sky to appear over Italy, shattering the very land itself. After the destruction of Rome the Holy See needed a new pope, electing the very same man that had plotted the downfall of the Herald. The Pope now sends a delegation to Venice, to bring the light of God back to the city, as well as look for a copy of the book made from the knowledge of the Herald and the man that stole it.
Synergy is the key to the Vatican, using the right miracles and skills will ensure the dominance of the church. While each individual of the Vatican may not be the strongest, or the fastest, they form part of a whole and need to work together to being the light of God to Venice.
The Rent in the Sky awoke a man that should have been long dead, Vlad Tepes Dracula. Gathering his strength and what Strigoi he could muster, he learned of the Rent and knew that beyond it he could sate his eternal thirst. Slaughtering his way to Venice Dracula regained the aid of the Romani people as well as brought the curse of the Varcolac back into the world. Gaining new allies in Venice the Strigoi are not a force to be trifled with.
The Strigoi rely on their powerful vampires to do the heavy lifting, while the mortal elements of a Strigoi force are there to support their vampire masters. With more unique characters than other factions the Strigoi need to be careful to protect their more expensive characters and get the most use out of them.
The Gifted are a band of loners. They are from all walks of life, united by one thing: the Rent in the Sky. They got given strange powers during the event. Some see these as a blessing, and others see them as a constant reminder of those they’ve lost, and the world left behind. The powers given often have a bittersweet taste, manifesting as forms of their shattered psyches.
The Gifted aren’t a faction in themselves, but can be taken alongside any other gang… for a price. They give powerful abilities to help your warriors or act as one-warrior armies, battering your opponents into oblivion.
