Beginner Friendly Miniatures
Relicblade figures are cast in high-quality white metal. Some friends have expressed discomfort with this beloved miniature medium, so the Storms of Kural set was carefully designed to be as beginner-friendly as possible. All figures are cast in one piece and slot directly into the supplied base. Players could easily play their first games without even using glue!
Relicblade bursts from the imagination of eccentric toymaker, Sean Sutter!
Strangely enough. Relicblade is the singular creation of one artist. Sean Sutter sits in his studio day and night dreaming of magical worlds. He does all of the sculpture, illustration, and game design himself. Relicblade is a work of passion and a wonderful example of the power of Kickstarter.
In 2015, Sean shifted his professional practice to focus on Relicblade full-time. Since then he has successfully funded four Kickstarter campaigns and continued to expand his creation into a vibrant fantasy world. He is driven by his restless imagination and the kind support of the Relicblade community.
By supporting the „Storms of Kural“ Kickstarter campaign, you are joining a group of patrons who make the world of Relicblade possible. Your enthusiasm is the raw magical energy that brings Relicblade to life.
The savage Kural mountains hid many secrets. Bitter winds ruled the air, and chaotic magic seized the land. These perilous mountains once held the crown jewel of the lost empires. Here, the rulers of men knelt before a ruthless priesthood, who in turn made them slaves. The corrupt priests wielded supreme power by arcane designs. They constructed strange temples, cosmically aligned with the unknowable patterns of creation, and used the very laws of creation to bind the power of rebel gods. In the final days, the priests supreme powers served only destruction. In spite of their pride, their empires were turned to ash.
In these cruel mountains, forbidding powers languished in forgotten temples. Once the opulent seat of priestly lords, they became the unwanted memories of a ruinous age. But as Darkness gripped the world, the forgotten rebel gods of Kural would not be denied their portion.
Corrupting tendrils reached from the void to open minds. Sorcerers, witches, prophets, and kings heard the unnerving whispers of the bound princes. Like shadows burned into stone, the lingering presence of ancient magic called out from cryptic remains. As arcane alignments shifted, the Temples of Kural erupted with unprecedented power and drew adventurers from every domain. Powerful magic storms surged at the zenith of opulent temples. The unbound fury of these cosmic storms threatened to utterly shatter the land. Those brave adventurers who entered the storm challenged not only the rebel powers, but strove to bend the fate of the world to their designs.
From far reaching corners of the known world, great heroes join the Path of the Advocate. They are bold adventurers and noble questors.
The Storms of Kural battle set includes four powerful heroes. Each hero represents a greater faction within Relicblade, and is specially designed to evoke the core principles and play-style of their faction.
The Warden of Justice
The Temple of Justice is a central beacon of hope. Ardent believers serve as the tip of the spear in the righteous quest to redeem our fragmented world.
Wardens of Justice are divinely appointed protectors tasked with the care and preservation of powerful relics. They are often commissioned from among a highly specialized martial class. When warrants are served by a special council, these noble warriors will endure the most brutal tasks with stoic determination.
Lone Guard Infiltrator
The Lone Guard are an ancient order of ever vigilant rangers and warriors. These frontiersmen stand with one foot solidly planted in hope for civilization and the other entwined in the savage wilderness.
Lone Guard Infiltrators specialize in covert operations deep behind enemy lines. As cruel tyrants rise in power, the razor sharp blades of the infiltrators follow close behind. These warriors carry a solemn oath to protect the innocent and a heavy burden to lay low the forces of evil.
The Wilderkin are a loose affiliation of individuals with fay ancestry. Their motives are convoluted and wildly varied. However, their dedication to the Path of the Advocate is unwavering.
Gnome Grenadiers are beyond exotic. As members of an otherworldly Alchemist Guild, they have been known to sojourn into the wildlands according to some unseen decree. These strange little warriors apply their advanced alchemical knowledge to strange and devastatingly powerful weaponry.
Wild Elf Witch
The Lostwood Enclave may have ancestral ties to the fay realm, but they are bound together by an unyielding commitment to the changed world. They are stewards and protectors utterly opposed to the forces of evil.
Powerful winds flow in unseen patterns beyond realms of understanding, so too do the Wild Elf Witches operate according to seemingly chaotic laws. They are profoundly strange, yet their uncanny powers are set firmly opposed to the Adversary. The Wild Elf Witches make exquisite allies against the trials that lie ahead.
Champions of the Adversary
As the light of hope grows, the shadows darken. Evil powers have champions of their own. Dark agents who serve darker purposes.
As the Storms of Kural rage, the heroes of the advocate will not go unchallenged! Four brutally powerful champions emerge to carve a cruel destiny in the Kural mountains.
Feral war tribes of pig men plague the world. They are a brutal and warlike people. Though barbaric and of low intelligence, the battle pigs are a dominating force born for a world of chaos.
Destroyer Pigs form the center of the pig battle lines. They carry massive, brutal weapons with the power to cut a horse in half, and conduct themselves with such savagery that it fuels a violent wave of destruction.
As the rebirth of civilization bore its first fruit, a new enemy emerged. Darkness manifested as a threat unlike any other. Seemingly designed to finish the work of the apocalypse.
The Dark Prophets are high priests in a profoundly evil religion. They have been granted the power to remake life in the image of death. These dark heralds wander in the vastness of the world sewing dark creation into the dying earth.
Unspeakably ancient gods slumber as their morbid tendrils reach from beyond the veil. The masters of the deep are primordial powers that have been worshipped since before the first human took shape. Strange servants have emerged from antediluvian temples, spreading into the void left in the wake of the apocalypse.
Slayer Squid are as murderous as they are bizarre. Their horrible black eyes mirror the abyss, and their keen blades cut with unnatural ease.
At the outskirts of civilization, the nomadic Iguan have established a parasitic empire. Criminal syndicates ply their sinister trades, as various factions vie for supremacy. The Wretched Hive is a predatory domain, as cruel and merciless as the sundered world itself.
Iguan Marauders are battle hardened warriors. Veterans of brutal campaigns fought as hired swords, they live and die by the blade. Unusually well equipped from a lifetime of warfare, the marauders make excellent hired men, so long as your payments arrive on time.
The Storms of Kural battle set is specially designed to equip two players with amazing miniatures and a powerful arsenal of cards that perfectly represent the tactical depth and dynamic gameplay people have come to expect from Relicblade.
In Relicblade, players recruit the ultimate squad of fantasy heroes or cruel villains as they battle for the fate of the world. Choose your path and gather the greatest warriors of the age to your cause! Enter a world of magical treasures, wonders, and horrors. Compete against rivals in the bitter struggle for supremacy! The rules are simple and easy to learn, but players are quickly engaged by deep tactical decisions.
Relicblade „factions“ represent groups that exist within the world. However, when you enter the game as a Seeker you choose between the good or evil alignments and gather heroes or villains to YOUR cause! Will you be the fate that brings together a noble fellowship? Or will you bind wicked servants to your dark will!?
The eight powerful champions featured in the Storms of Kural battle set are carefully designed to fulfill an important role within the battle set warbands. But they have also been designed to fit perfectly into the existing faction sets for their given faction. Meaning new players will have the opportunity to get a sense for all eight factions, then freely expand into full-size faction warbands with the addition of a single faction set.
Auf der Kickstarter-Seite gibt es noch diverse weitere Infos und Add-ons.
Die Kampagne ist finanziert und läuft noch 16 Tage.
