Hi! I'm Tim Olinger, Creator of Kingdoms of Erden: King of the Mountain. King of the Mountain is a faction set-collection strategy card game similar to UNO except you're trying to collect cards, instead of getting rid of them. Each faction card has a special ability and a number rank. In the game, you'll attempt to defeat a champion to become the new "king" of the mountain. You'll also collect rewards for staying on top. You'll collect faction members of the same faction to gain victory points that will let you take the mountain by storm, proclaiming your factions dominance. Your characters will claim victory over the kings mountain and gain fame and glory for however briefly they can retain the position of victor against future challengers. Use strategy and build a strong faction hand to take the mountain by force and proclaim your chosen factions dominance or simply outlast your opponents.
Here we see the beautiful cover art, a glimpse into the world of Erden. The Kings Mountain summit is a hotly contested site similar to the fountain of youth. Instead of water, this site grants health, gold, fame, glory, glowing skin, adoring fans and bragging rights to the one who plants their feet on that hallowed ground.
Let's take a closer look at the factions and the cards. These cards are from the blue faction known as the Imelridh. Each faction character has a number rank that is shown in the cards upper left corner. That's my face on the blue king.
These next cards are from the red faction known as the Carnaros. You might notice that underneath the title of the characters, each character card has a special ability. My brother let me use his face on the red king. He's a really nice guy. (My brother, not the red king.)
The yellow third faction, known as the Brigon Empire, also has it's eye on the mountains peak. On each character card, you can see the characters title and faction color & sigil in the upper right hand corner. The sigil color and faction name help you identify the characters faction. You may not defeat a character with a card of the same faction.
In addition to the faction characters you may utilize for your dominion of the mountain, you may also use other means to secure your place at the top. Wild cards will help you in times of great need. Five different types of wild cards will lend variety and more strategy to your campaign for supremacy.

Risks and challenges
The challenges that come with any card game project include the cost of printing and shipping the product. I will be using MPC.com to print the cards as they have proven their speed and quality to me several times.
I will also be using USPS to ship out the rewards. For all other challenges, I will be using my army and power as King of the Imelridh, to effect a positive outcome for all who back this venture.
