Even Quicker Game Summary:

In Teramyyd:Earthsphere, you control one of the great Sky Captains as they adventure across the lands of the Earthsphere, seeking easy gold, battles with foes, potent artifacts, and the strongest technology and magick so that you can gain the power you need to fulfill your destiny.

In your travels across the skies, you will battle dread creatures, capricious winds and storms, the lure of riches, and even the cannons of your fellow Sky Captains. Which of you will be the first to achieve your quest? Which of you will be the one to change the face of history?

Backers of this Kickstarter will also get, included with their basic games, some additional items granted by the unlocking our stretch goals. These stretch goal items, marked in bold, will not be included in the basic game after the Kickstarter, but will have to be purchased separately.  

So here is what you, our backers, get in your boxes depending on your pledge level.

Component list in Base Game:

  •  7 Unique ship miniatures included (Stretch Goal Reached!)
  • 1 Kobolos Dragon miniature included (Stretch Goal Reached!)
  • 1 White Sails Miniature ( Stretch Goal Reached! )

Click map below for a full pdf version of map

Our miniatures are very detailed and we have endeavored to make the highest quality miniatures possible. The hex-shaped bases are approximately 25mm / 1 inch across and 2.5-3 inches / 60-75 mm in length.  They come pre-assembled in box and are colored and ready to play. They are also paintable for those that want to bring out more detail.

Thanks to our backers, we have already met our base goal. This game will be produced. Now the challenge is to aim higher and reach out to make the game a fuller and richer product and experience. Help us reach our stretch goals (see below).

UNLOCKED! $95k KS EXCLUSIVE - Captains' Personal Spell Cards. Each one of the 21 Captains now unlocked will have a dedicated Spell Card. "Uhland's Corrosion" or Delann's Whisper" or something like that. You'll be able to start with your particular Captain's personal Spell Card at the outset, or throw them all into the Spells Deck and see what shakes out. These go out in every Kickstarter Edition game, but not thereafter. (Kickstarter Exclusive Card Deck now at 21 cards.)

UNLOCKED! $100k - Double-sided Tiles.

UNLOCKED! $110k KS EXCLUSIVE - Captains' Personal Tactics Cards. Like the Spell cards above, except Tactics Cards this time. "Kitsune's Dash"? "Zhao's Feint"? We'll find out at 110k!  (Kickstarter Exclusive Card Deck now at 42 cards.)

UNLOCKED! $115k KS EXCLUSIVE - 7 New Ally Cards - One for each faction.  (Kickstarter Exclusive Card Deck now at 49 cards.)

UNLOCKED! $120k - 3D Quest Markers. This is pure luxury. Keep your quest chits from being blown around due to errant sneezes by cradling them into these stylish caddies. And yes, they will fit inside the hex without overlap. (No, these are not necessary for gameplay. They are just decorative. You will get some, and you will be able to buy more cheap as add-ons, if you like. Details to follow once we all get a good night's sleep.)

UNLOCKED ! $125k KS EXCLUSIVE - 5 New Tech Cards - One of each type.  (Kickstarter Exclusive Card Deck now at 53 cards.)

UNLOCKED ! $130k - 7 new ship minis, one for each faction. These can either be bought at the normal add-on prices, or you can get them as part of the any of the Super pledge levels ($110, $145, $249, $299, $320 and above).

UNLOCKED ! $135k - Ship Playmat for "The Aeriopolis". Yes you can finally wield this powerful floating fortress. 1 in every game box.

$140k - A leather bag in all super pledges

$175k - Another 7 new ship minis, one for each faction. Just like the 130K stretch goal above. That way all 21 Captains will have a ship of their own, if you care about such things. We do.

$188k - 8th Faction. We have plans. We have definite plans. Oh, yes we do. This will be 1 new ship for every game box, plus 2 new ships for Super pledgers or as add-ons, plus 3 new Captain Cards for every game box, plus 3 new Captains' Personal Tactics Cards and Captains' Personal Spell Cards in every game box.

$200k - Something wonderful...

Risks and challenges

When putting a game together, there are many steps along the way. This game has lots of custom-made parts-- the map, the dice, the cards, the tokens, the booklets, and the miniatures. All of these need to converge into one custom designed box and magically delivered to your home address.

Our team has many veterans aboard.
Our Creative Director, Aaron VanNice, has 15 years professional design experience including his time at Industrial Light & Magic.
Our Producer, Derek Jurovich has 16 years of managing projects, interfacing with overseas and local manufacturers, previous game production and fulfillment experience.
The rest of our team are all experts in their own areas including content writing, graphic design, conceptual art, video editing, game testing, and marketing.
We are all avid gamers and want to thank you for supporting this project.

Thank you again,

IOworlds

    Private Shipyard -- Yes, our ship minis look nice, but maybe you think you could come up with one at least 20 percent cooler. If so, here's your chance to put your money where your mouth is. At this pledge level you will work with the creative crew at IOworlds to create a Flagship of your imagination. We will give you as much creative freedom as we can while still grounding your creation in our mythos, making everything physically possible, and keeping everything legal. (No Batplanes, Landspeeders, or Galacticas, if you please.) Also you will get everything that comes with the $145 pledge level. (Ships anywhere, you can upgrade this package to get everything in the Buried Treasure package instead for $100 add-on, if you are in the US or Canada.) And we'll also make you a special double-sized, resin-cast mini for you to paint, display, or stick on your mantle. Also, if you want both the Private Shipyard option and the Patronage and Influence option,but can't decide between them, just pledge one and bump your pledge amount up to $1299. That way you can have both, and we can work together on making your Captain and Ship a themed pair. (Or completely different if you want. We're good either way.)
