About

LUMINAE AND THE CURSED TOWER

Our story takes place in Luminae, capital of the Forsela Empire, where a mysterious tower rises from the ground without warning. The ominous spire’s arrival was accompanied by a thick, unnatural fog; billowing out from the tower, and engulfing the city completely within minutes.

A fearless group of heroes makes their way to Luminae, seeking the truth about the tower, the fog, and the fate of her citizens. Armed with powerful weapons, potent spells, and mystical artifacts, they may yet unearth the tower’s secrets; provided that they survive the experience. An ancient and terrible evil dwells in the heart of the tower, patiently awaiting their arrival.

Luminae and the Cursed Tower is a dark fantasy combat and exploration game for 4-7 players, with most sessions lasting between 45 to 90 minutes.

During each game, one of the players will assume the role of Corruption, controlling the forces of evil, and seeking to eliminate the Heroes at every step. They control what happens during the adventure, but make no mistake: their goal is to eliminate the group of Heroes.

The remaining players play the role of Heroes, pursuing different objectives while fighting against the Corruption's troops.

To get started, each player selects a Hero to portray. There are three different types of Heroes: Warriors, Rogues and Wizards, each with their own abilities, strengths, and weaknesses.

A Hero is represented by the following:

  • One miniature, representing the character on the board.  
  • One character card describing their features (movement, strength, defense, life, corruption...).

Heroes can equip a total of six equipment cards, consisting of weapons, armor, accessories, and a support item.

Each equipment card has its own features, and some are exclusive to one of the three character archetypes (Warriors, Rogues, or Wizards).

Powerful but rare, each Hero can only equip a single artifact card, choosing between weapons, armor, or accessories. 

 Heroes with magical abilities will have an assortment of powers at their disposal; exerting a powerful influence on events, and increasing the group’s odds of survival.

One of the players assumes the role of The Corruption. This adversarial force opposes the Heroes at every turn, trying to keep them from succeeding at their quests. From deadly troops to sinister traps, The Corruption provides opposition across the adventure… as well as corrupting the Heroes, in an attempt to control them.

As adventures are completed, The Corruption’s monstrous troops grow more powerful, increasing in strength, and unlocking new abilities.

Corruption uses the following:    

  • Miniatures, representing monsters on the board. 
  • The monster’s cards.
  • The adventure manual.

The miniatures of Luminae and the Cursed Tower are built to a 1:60 ratio, with an average height of 28 mm. Some miniatures will be bigger, while others will be smaller depending on what they represent. The quality of the miniatures is a top priority for us: we want to offer a high level of detail. 

 Luminae and the Cursed Tower Artbook contents:

  • Foreword: Introduction to the art book: explaining the development of the game, what steps we took, and small anecdotes, as well as complications that came up along the way.
  • Heroes: Biographies for each Hero, accompanied by their abilities and illustration. There will also be sketches, detailed designs, and images of the 3D figure of each Hero.
  • Environments: Illustrations and concept art of Luminae's world, detailing the setting, and expanding on key locations; fleshing out the world.
  • Lore: Luminae takes place in a richly detailed world: by immersing yourself in its details, each adventure takes on greater meaning. Understand the story, learn the role of the characters, and the meaning behind their adventures.
  • Bestiary: A compilation of illustrations and biographies for the monsters that plague Luminae. Learn their strengths and weaknesses, and take in detailed images of the figures.

We’re a new team, and we can’t wait to show the world what we’re capable of. Working on Luminae and the Cursed Tower has been a long journey, filled with love and good vibes: we hope you love this game as much as we do. In addition to Luminae, we have other board game projects in the pipeline, but for now our main priority is to get Luminae in your hands. That said, we’re already hard at work on the next expansion for Luminae and the Cursed Tower, and future plans involve expanding the franchise with a tabletop roleplaying game and video game, all set in the world of Luminae.

Risks and challenges

Like any other project produced internationally, there may be delays in several aspects such as production, shipping and customs. We are keenly aware that some delays are unpredictable and difficult to avoid, and we’ve estimated our delivery dates accordingly. If all goes according to plan, we should have plenty of time to spare: and when complications inevitably arise, we should have room in our schedule to handle it. Since this is our first Kickstarter, we wanted to give you the best estimate possible for rewards delivery.

Either way, we will keep everyone regularly updated on the development and evolution of the project.
