About

TerraTiles: Crystal Caverns is a tabletop terrain system that depicts a vast labyrinth of underground caverns with narrow corridors, open rooms, expansive caves, and dramatic themed rooms to serve as the centerpiece of your adventures. Crystal Caverns features large, durable, and beautifully illustrated hexagonal tiles that fit together in any orientation. Designed specifically for use with role-playing games, it can be paired with the RPG Campaign pack that will be loaded with adventures, pre-made maps, props, stand-up accessories, and more to make the Crystal Caverns ready for your game night.

Crystal Caverns is the third set in the TerraTiles tabletop terrain system. Over 1,300 gamers have already pledged for TerraTiles boxes as Kickstarter rewards during The Misty Moorlands and Coasts and Rivers Kickstarter campaigns. Now is your chance to get in on the action!

TerraTiles: Crystal Caverns isn’t just another dank and dreary cave. You and your friends will plunge into its otherworldly glow for a game to remember. TerraTiles is easy to use and allows you to create incredibly diverse and beautiful setups. Now, we are pairing TerraTiles with its own RPG Campaign Pack which includes a Game Master’s Guide. Here are the highlights:

Unique Environment - Break away from the ordinary and impress your players with an exciting theme. The cultist’s temple, summoning circle, and other cool tiles will serve as centerpieces for your adventures.

Variety - Keep your adventures new and fresh and craft the cavern you want. There are nearly an infinite number of ways to assemble a TerraTiles game board.

Quick Set-Up - You can cover your table quickly and easily, because each hexagon measures nine inches from corner to corner.

Game Master's Guide - No matter what game system or genre you play, having exciting adventures in the Crystal Caverns will be easy. The Game Master's Guide is filled with ways to use the Crystals in the game and even contains keyed maps for ready-to-run adventures. The accessories and props in the Campaign pack are an easy way to add excitement and flair the game.

The Amulet of Aldramere - Being creators, we really like to be hands-on in the development of our projects. So, we brainstormed different ideas for personally creating something to give to our backers. The Amulet of Aldramere is part of an adventure in the Game Master's Guide, and so it seemed a natural item to create for you! The Amulet is included in the RPG Campaign Pack as a cardboard accessory, but we wanted to bring it to life in a different way. Each of these will be personally handmade by us (Heath and Seth). We hope they will serve as a focal point for one of your game nights and bring you a little deeper into the game!

Every TerraTiles: Crystal Caverns Kickstarter box will contain 31 double sided hexagon tiles, which is enough to cover over 12 square feet.  While the number of tiles in the box is fixed, their distribution will change as stretch goals are reached. As with all TerraTiles, the hexagons will showcase a matte finish and linen texture. Here's Heath to show you our advanced prototype, so you know exactly what you will be getting:

The graphic below shows everything currently in the TerraTiles: Crystal Caverns box. We’ll keep it updated as any stretch goals are reached.

The RPG Campaign Pack has everything needed to play a Crystal Caverns themed adventure right out of the box. We have designed it to recall the glory days of the old-school campaign boxes that came filled with materials to augment your game and delight the players. With a full-color Game Master's Guide, player handouts, props, and accessories for your TerraTiles layouts, you will have everything necessary to immerse yourself in the Crystal Caverns.

Game Master's Guide - This full-color booklet will serve as your guide to the Crystal Caverns. It includes three adventures with keyed Crystal Caverns maps, adventure hooks for multiple genres, information on advanced uses for the crystals, and descriptions of the caverns for the Game Master to read aloud or from which to draw inspiration. For a glimpse at the guide, here is an excerpt with ideas on how to use the Crystal Caverns in fantasy, modern, alternative history, and supers genres.

One-Page Adventure Ideas & Player Handouts - Sometimes a Game Master only needs a little spark to get the creative juices flowing, so we have included a number of campaign ideas printed on cardstock that cover the fantasy, science-fiction, and modern adventure genres. Let your imagination run wild! The reverse side will feature maps, drawings, bits of lore, and other illustrations for the Game Master’s reference and the players’ consumption during the game.

Pre-Drawn Map Pad - With this pad of tear-off pre-drawn layouts, a Game Master can get right to the fun of populating the Caverns with whatever monsters, traps, and treasures might await the players in tonight’s game. You might even let the players use one to make their own notes as they journey through the caverns.

Crystals - Each box contains 12 translucent acrylic crystals to provide your players with a physical representation of the crystals as they break off chunks of crystals from the walls and pocket them. Players will love being able to touch and hold the crystals of the caverns.

Props & Accessories - The RPG Campaign Pack is loaded out with doors, chests, staircases, weapon racks, stand-up crystals, mushrooms, and more, so you can really spice up your Crystal Caverns layouts. They will be made from the same durable board as the tiles, and we’ll include plastic stands to hold them up. Plus, if the stretch goals are reached, we will add secret passages, small rooms, and alcoves as well as player props!

The graphic below shows everything currently included in the RPG campaign pack. We will keep it updated as we reach new stretch goals.

We have set the Kickstarter funding goal for this project as low as possible to get it into production. But, this means we need your help to make the Crystal Caverns the best it can possibly be. Therefore, we put together a stretch goal ladder based on campaign funding. All Crystal Caverns boxes and RPG Campaign Packs will include all stretch goals reached.

We are collecting your ideas for new artwork to be included in the set, as part of a later stretch goal! Please submit your ideas on this sheet, and we will use them to compile a list for all of our backers to vote on their favorite at the conclusion of the campaign.

You may only add on if you pledge at the $43 level or higher. There is no additional shipping necessary. Click "Manage Your Pledge" and add the specified amount to your pledge. We will collect information regarding addons through a survey after the Kickstarter campaign.

All of the above add-ons will be shipped with your Crystal Caverns Kickstarter rewards in June of 2016. We have copies of TerraTiles: The Misty Moorlands, TerraTiles risers, and War of Kings available to ship now via our website. During the Kickstarter, use promo code CAVERNSTAKETEN after you click checkout for 10% off your order.

Money Back Guarantee - As always, we stand behind our products fully. We understand the risk you are taking to support our project, and to demonstrate this we want to extend a money back guarantee to all of our backers. If you are unhappy with Crystal Caverns, return it within 30 days of delivery for a full refund, no questions asked.

Kickstarter Exclusive Tile- The Aldrameric Summoning Circle will not be included in the retail game box. Backing our Kickstarter project is the only way to receive this special tile.

Kickstarter Discount & Shipping - By pledging on Kickstarter, you will receive TerraTiles at a discount as well as take advantage of our worldwide distribution network. Supporting this Kickstarter is the cheapest and quickest way to get the Crystal Caverns delivered to your door.

Influence the Crystal Caverns Design – In anticipation of all the great ideas we know you will have, we have allotted for at least three stretch goals that will let you submit your own ideas for two new pieces of tile artwork and a new adventure idea. We will get all of our backers to vote directly on what new material gets included!

Our first TerraTiles product, The Misty Moorlands, was funded in January of this year and fulfilled in July. This means hundreds of gamers across the world have already had a chance to play their games on TerraTiles and share their feedback with us!

"Check these cardboard hex terrain tiles out, the kids love them and I have to say, so do I! :-)" - The Terrain Tutor in his video. Also check out the Bolt Action game he set up using The Misty Moorlands.

"My set arrived yesterday and I'm not happy; I'm ecstatic! The tiles are perfect." - Abraham E.

"[TerraTiles] was everything I could have hoped for and more." - Article on BGG about using TerraTiles for Zombicide

"It's easy to see how these tiles can immerse you into the storyline and enhance your gameplay." - David Higgins in his unboxing video of The Misty Moorlands

There is also a Geek List over on BGG that lists over 130 games for which TerraTiles can be used. Be sure to check it out here and add any games that you plan on using them for!

The shipping costs below are applicable to all pledge levels and do not increase, no matter how much you pledge. We partner with fulfillment centers around the world to lessen customs, duties, VAT, and fees for you. Rewards shipped to backers in the US, EU, CAN, and AU will be shipped from within those countries, and we will have already paid any customs fees. The shipping charges below are automatically added on to your Kickstarter Pledge.

We welcome any retailers who would like to support TerraTiles: Crystal Caverns and get the Kickstarter version to sell in their stores. Whether you operate a brick-and-mortar or web-based store, please message us directly through Kickstarter or email us at info@rainnstudios.com for information on pledging.

Artur Jag worked with us to bring the Crystal Caverns world to life! His work is incredible, and it was a pleasure to get to know him. Here are a few layouts that can be made with Crystal Caverns. These include stretch goals, and the larger boards require two sets.

Risks and challenges

This is our fourth Kickstarter campaign, and each iteration brings more valuable experiences. We apply all of our lessons learned to provide a better experience to you, our supporters.
So, we expect everything to move smoothly from Kickstarter to production. We have built strong relationships with our international fulfillment partners, so we are confident in our ability to deliver your rewards to you in a safe an expedient manner.
However, there is always the potential for unexpected surprises. Final preparation that can only occur after the Kickstarter could take longer than expected due to unforeseen circumstances. When the product is inspected for quality control, a flaw could be found and a part may have to be remade. We will not sacrifice quality for any reason, even if it pushes the schedule back! Of course, sometimes the biggest obstacle happens once Crystal Caverns leaves the manufacturer. There is always the potential for delays with freight shipping, customs clearance, distribution, etc.
However, if you back the TerraTiles: Crystal Caverns Kickstarter campaign, we promise to keep you up to date about its progress from the campaign’s close all the way to when the rewards are shipped. As you can see from our previous campaigns, we post regular updates, so you will know what we know when we know it.
