About

 In a time of magic and power, a band of Heroes and Villains will form a tentative alliance and venture into the underworld to face the dark creatures of Hell.   Only the bravest of souls will descend into the abyss and face THE VEIL and its RULERS OF DARKNESS!  

The Veil is an epic, dark fantasy DECK BUILDING game that emphasizes character driven combat and thematic decks.  The Veil is easy to learn but provides a lot of strategic depth.  If you are familiar with other deck building games, the Veil has some great things to offer you that many other deck building games lack. 

To play the game, select a Hero character.  That character has an 8 card Starting Deck and a 36 card Fate Deck.  Each player shuffles their two decks separately.  Place 4 cards from your Fate Deck face up to create your Fate Route (as you purchase or Banish cards from here you will replenish these 4 slots).  The player with the least amount of Health goes first and draws 1 less card on their first turn (4 cards).  

Each player takes turns dealing damage, playing Recruits, healing, and using their unique Hero ability until all other players have their Health reduced to zero.  You win! 

Unlike most other deck building games, each player has his or her own Hero, starting deck, and an exclusive market (called a Fate Route) where that player may acquire better cards. This creates a much more immersive experience that fits your play style, with your Hero or Villain gaining power and skills within the theme of their character class. 

For example, your Paladin character does not purchase Cultist spells. Your Demon character will not have Angel Recruits in his or her deck. The decks and character classes are designed thematically, and the resulting experience is a hell of a lot of fun!

 Each Fate Deck has at least the three basic card types-- Agro, Control, and Support.  As you build your character throughout the course of the game, you may choose to specialize in one or two of these card types, or play any number of different thematic styles to your own liking.  There are many viable builds for each Hero, giving this game one of the highest replay values you'll ever experience.  The power is in your Hands!

Each of the above card types can trigger Synergies in the cards you play during your turn.  In the example below, when you play  WITCHING HOUR you may draw a card and add 6 damage to your damage pool.  Upon playing BAAL FIRE, it triggers the Agro Synergy from WITCHING HOUR, allowing you to draw another card and have a total of 16 damage in your damage pool (6+6+4).  If your opponent has a Recruit in play, you can Self-Banish BAAL FIRE to slay that Recruit before dealing any of your damage to your opponent's Hero.

When you play a Recruit, it remains in play until slain or until it takes damage equal to its listed Health.  Every Recruit has its Health listed to the right of its Name.  Recruits are exhausted (turned sideways) to indicate you have used its ability this turn.  Ready them again by turning them right-side-up at the end of your turn.

Check out this brief tutorial from Season 1 to learn how to play the Veil.

The real question on everyone's mind is- "What loot do I get with my pledge?"  That, of course, is up to you.  Unless you're planning on exclusively playing a solo campaign, I recommend you get at least 2 Core Decks.

There are 5 brand new core decks in Season 2 to choose from.  

You can become an agent of evil and rule over the forces of Hell, or fight as an ally to the kingdom of Heaven and vanquish those demons back into the underworld.   

The Demons of Sheol are fighting to free themselves from the imprisonment of the underworld.  The Demoness is tough and hard-hitting, while the Imp is quick and skilled at avoiding his enemies.

The Zealots of the Veil are a part of a holy order, from Blackridge Monastery, charged with preventing demons from unleashing hell in our world.  The Exorcist controls his enemy and weakens them over time, while the Witcher uses her knowledge of the dark arts to cast wards and powerful spells against her opponents.

The Denizens of Chaos are the ancient gods of a forgotten time, banished to the furthest depths of the abyss for their many egregious, hateful acts.  The C'thonian relieves his victims of their sanity, while the Red Queen deems only the deformed survivors of her malice worthy of life.

The Angels of Apocalypse are composed of seers and spiritists who have taken up the charge to eliminate the forces of evil from the netherworld.  The Herald foresees the future and changes what he wills, while the Diviner uses the lost spirits of the underworld to wage her wars. 

The Coven are a rare breed of casters who seek the council of demons and the ancient gods while working to free them from their dimensional prison.  The Witch uses all manor of spellcraft and traps, while the Cultist favors sacrifice to excel quickly into her path of black magic.

After deciding which Core Decks you want, you may find the expansion decks to your liking.  Each of the 3 expansion Decks provide additional content, creating many additional hours of replay value to a very exciting Deck Building game.

The Hero expansion provides an extra Hero and Starting Deck for all 5 Core Decks.  Additional Stretch Goals will add more cards and content to this expansion.

The Villain expansion provides a Villain and its Starting Deck for all 5 Core Decks.  Additional Stretch Goals will add more cards and content to this expansion.

Villains are awesome.  They are about twice as powerful as a Hero, so you can face off against 2 of your favorite frenemies in an epic 3 player game.

Lastly, the Campaign Allies + Enemies Deck will provide you with additional play content directly from the Campaign Book (as well as some additional rewards and Raid Bosses).  Additional Stretch Goals will add more cards and content to this expansion as well.

You DO NOT need to purchase the Campaign 2 Enemies + Allies Card Pack in order to play Campaign 2.  It was something my players from Campaign 1 requested, and I wanted to make it available for this set.

But wait, there's more!  The epic Heroes and Villains from Season 1 are still available in a beautiful collectors box.  We hit a lot of awesome Stretch Goals in that first campaign last year, so everything is available in one classy box set.

Assassins, Wizards, and Necromancers battle for dominance in a world of magic with these classic Dark Fantasy characters!

One of the most exciting and unique aspects of The Veil is its immersive Campaign Mode. Each Campaign can be played as a solo adventure OR as a cooperative team game. There are at least 25 quests (per campaign), arranged in a “choose-your-own-adventure” style of narrative story-telling, that hearken back to classic Role-Playing-Games.

Your Hero will face many challenges and reap great rewards along the way, gaining powers and abilities that will aid you in your conquest.

CHECK OUT THE FULL BOOK OF CAMPAIGN ONE!

The last Campaign was the brain-child of our very own Kickstarter crowdfunding community. As a result of our community's many insights and input, it brought me great pride to turn The Veil into something bigger and better than I had originally planned! 

PREVIEW CAMPAIGN 2 THRU OUR WEBSITE

From a narrative perspective, Campaign 2 follows the events of Campaign 1, however, you DO NOT need to play Campaign 1 to understand the story line. THE VEIL: Rulers of Darkness is being arranged as a proper sequel. Those players who experienced Campaign 1 will have a deeper background into the narrative, but each campaign and card set is designed to be played as a stand-alone game OR to be combined to form a larger experience. 

PLAY THE VEIL FOR FREE AT TABLETOPIA

You can play a Hero vs a Hero.  You can play a Villain character against 2 Heroes (for a very exciting 3 player match).  Additionally, Team games, Free-For-All, Villain vs Villain, and other match-ups provide you access to the most replay value of any deck-building game out there.

Risks and challenges

First, I want to remind any international backers. If your country has any “duty taxes” for packages shipped from the USA, you will be responsible for those charges. These are usually charged upon delivery or held until you pick up the parcel at your local postal facility. I never see these charges; they are added to you from your country of origin.

The goal is to have all of the new orders shipped before Christmas of 2019. Sometimes international shipping (outside of the USA) takes a while to receive.

Aside from that, the biggest endeavor we face is making Campaign 2 bigger and bolder than the previous installment.

I restructured this Kickstarter to allow backers to get as much or as little as they want. I am holding the color printed box (like from the first set) as a stretch goal, so I was able to greatly reduce my Kickstarter goal. That being said, another challenge for me will be keeping up with the art for the Stretch Goals if this starts moving fast.

This will be my 4th successful Kickstarter delivery. The previous Kickstarter games were THE VEIL, SIEGE WARFARE, and SIEGE WARFARE THE GRECO-PERSIAN WARS.

The game content of cards and play mechanics for THE VEIL SEASON 2 are already completed (and thoroughly play-tested). I have a strong team that can help me meet my delivery goals, even if we face the incredible blessing of a HUGE Kickstarter response.

Thank you for your consideration! I hope to see you on the Backer page!
