New Reward Tier: The Black Rose

Posted by Jim Searcy (Creator)

The Black Rose is the first board game set in the Shadows of Esteren universe. Taking place in the same setting as the official scenario Vengeful Words, written by Nelyhann, it is a 3- to 5-Player game, somewhere between Werewolf and Clue. Black Rose is short and simple, putting the emphasis on interaction between the Players. Unmask the culprit before it’s too late!

For the end of the campaign, we have designed two new reward tiers specially dedicated to “The Black Rose”: a $35 one for the Standard Edition (shipping included for US and EU), and an $80 one for the Limited Edition ("Beautiful Black Rose"). The Limited Edition features an exclusive cover and a numbered authentication card, in addition to the special “Black Rose” card with a particular ability. Note that this new rewards tiers are for the English version of the Black Rose only.

Here is a picture of the game. It includes a deck of cards (tarot size), a discard board, tokens for investigators and a token to keep track of the time:

Here are several illustration samples (the cards currently have the design of tarot cards, but in their final version, they will be given specific borders):

Here is a tutorial detailing the rules (password: garan):

      Chris >> You can do that. We just added the PDF of the Monastery as an option for $10. You can take the Black Rose standard edition pledge + add $10 and you are set!
      The pledge summary : http://esteren.org/shadows_of_esteren/ks4/KS_TUATH_REWARD_LIST_1.xls

      Jussi >> No, the $80 Beautiful Black Rose pledge includes the price of this special card. For the Grearter Farl, it is an option for $10. And yes this is the same card (the black rose).

      Is there a way that I can combine the contents of the Black Rose standard edition pledge and the Shadow pledge? Can the Black Rose standard edition be an add on to all pledge levels?

      Does the limited Black Rose included in the Greater Farl Collector reward also include the special card?
      And is this the same special card that is a $10 option?
