FIELD TACTICS is an innovative strategy card game which revolves around warfare over the declining resource Lumbrosia.
FIELD TACTICS is an innovative strategy card game which revolves around warfare over a declining resource, lumbrosia, a mystical other worldly fruit which changed Luria’s inhabitants, and gave them amazing abilities upon which the races of the world are now utterly dependent. Now the lumbrosia is all but gone save for one grove … Neatra’s Vale. Tended by the mysterious Neatra, a figure whose visage brings a brief renewal of lumbrosia in her vicinity.
The game play revolves around control of the field in three ways..
1.) OCCUPY: Gain physical control of the majority of your opponent’s home zone (achieved by your units making their way across the board and avoiding your opponents efforts to stop you)
2.) DESTROY: In battle defeating enough of the enemy's units to accumulate TEN victory points.
3.) DOMINATE: Completely fill the unique side zone slots of each of the six rows that represent the battlefield.
Once any single one of the conditions has been achieved, that player immediately wins the game.
Decks are composed of various units from the nine major races/factions of Luria, with the first set focused of the elusive Aether, the imposing Empyreans and the relentless Legion. Six others remain to be unlocked… err… discovered….
A strange nomadic people, with one eye on the horizon, and the other fixed on the skies above the horizon. The Aether roam from place to place on Luria following some strange cycle or pattern known only to themselves. The Aether specialize in going around obstacles and opponents, or bending the gravity in the area to their whim. Led by the mighty Eclispe, the Aether's might poses a serious challenge to the other faction's claim to Neatra's Vale.
Drawn from the luminescence of the highest places of Luria, the Empyrean look down upon the land. In their opinion their wisdom and guidance is this worlds only chance at salvation. They believe to achieve Luria’s ultimate salvation, the other races will have to take up the path of the “Radiant Word”. The forces of the First Host have an impressive resonance and connection to the land, their understanding of this celestial resonance gives them a greater degree of influence over the battlefield.
Less a race and more a faction, the Legion is led by the enigmatic Lich Lords, master necromancers who have discovered how to reanimate the dead. Each master has a different specialty. Among the Legion’s numbers, are potentially every person that ever has ever, or ever will die. The Legion's numbers are matched only by their relentless ferocity. Maybe it’s because they are already dead, but wherever the LEGION goes FEAR follows .
As mentioned above, these are just the initial factions included with Neatra's Vale. There are six others awaiting your discovery.

Risks and challenges
Gnork Games has been working with manufacturers to ensure the highest quality components at reasonable prices. Any time you are dealing with manufacturer's abroad, unforeseeable delays such as strikes, natural disasters, and acts of god may occur. Since the CORE set is completely done, any delays would fall into that category. Should we unlock expansions for which the art is not yet complete, then artist's delays may cause the project to ship late. Our past experience in dealing with artists has shaped our project timeline, and we feel confident that we have allowed enough time for our artists to complete their art and maintain an October release. Regardless, we pledge to be as transparent as possible with prompt and regular project updates. It's your money, and you deserve to be appraised as to the status of the project. If there is bad news then we will give it to you straight and promptly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
