Kingdoms of Erden: King of the Mountain: Mercenary Faction (Canceled)
Collect faction members and dominate the mountain in this fantasy "set collection" strategy card game. Ages 10+ 2-6 players 15-45 min
This Campaign is all about the Mercenary Faction expansion to the Kingdoms of Erden: King of the Mountain card game.
The mercenary characters rank points may be used to help you reach faction dominance. If you don't have enough points to win using a single faction, you can add the rank points of your mercenary cards to your chosen faction.
This group of monsters and monster hunters will fight your enemies and fight each other to be on the winning team. They are valuable allies in your campaign for dominance of the Kings Mountain.
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.
In their turn, each player will choose a card from their hand to play and discard. The chosen card must be able to defeat the victor card on the top of the discard pile. Cards with higher number ranking can defeat lower ranked cards. Character cards and wild cards have special abilities that spice up the action and add more strategy. Gain reward cards for defeating the victor card and for holding your ground as the new "king" of the mountain. Faction Dominance allows the first player who has 35 faction points for a single color faction in their hand to win the game. If a player has no cards left to play, they lose the game and the remaining players will continue until only one player remains. The victorious player is the last one to place a card on the discard pile.
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 character cards for the three factions included in the core game.
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.
These 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.
The yellow 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.

The creative minds behind Kingdoms of Erden
About me. My name is Timothy. When i discovered Kickstarter, I realized that I could actually design, produce and sell the art and game ideas that have been fermenting in my brain. My years of varied work history has given me many ideas. I love figuring out how to make a board or card game work. I also think art should be functional. My dream is to make a variety of games using the Kingdoms of Erden IP. We have been creating the art assets for Kingdoms of Erden for five years. If you have any suggestions or if there is some swag you would like to add to your pledge, please let me know. If you would like to make a quantity order, we may be able to give you a bulk discount.
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.
