Creator Jason M. Allen talks Ascended Kings!
Ascended Kings is a high fantasy, battle royal board game that includes miniatures, cards, dice, gemstones, strategy & tactics! Engage in free-for-all combat to the death, spurred on by slowly encroaching walls of fire. With no player elimination, fallen kings immediately return to the battle as Revenants—powerful dark beings from the fringe dimension—keeping every player in the fight until the four kings’ Bloodstones are united and the ultimate source of power, the Omega Stone, is summoned.
Story by Jason M. Allen and Nick Macari, written by Nick Macari, and illustrated by comic legends Renae De Liz & Ray Dillon, artists from A Game of Thrones and The Legend of Wonder Woman. Ascended Kings: The Fall of Empyrnea is a 60-page, fantasy hardcover graphic novel based on the arena combat board game centered around the four kings of Empyrnea. This is the first installment of the Omega Mundus Series. This book is not required to play the board game, but it is a perfect companion to immerse yourself into the Ascended Kings Universe!

RISKS AND CHALLENGES
Every KickStarter project is faced with numerous risks and challenges, especially as it pertains to having accurate timing for complex products containing multiple components.
With this project, the Ascended Kings game design and all game artwork are complete, and we are already in production with Shuffled Ink. We fully expect to have all shipments sent out to be delivered in December 2017 - however, the exact timing is impossible to predict. There are sometimes unpredictable challenges in terms of timing when producing anything in China; the most common are production delays, shipping delays and/or customs delays. The global logistics involved with shipping may also cause some regions to receive their pledges sooner than others.
We believe that an open flow of communication between us and the backer community is vital. Once the project is successfully funded we will deliver regular updates on progress via Kickstarter as well as in our news section at AscendedKings.com. We will do our best to keep our backers as up to date as possible!
Our team has planned and prepared for a successful KickStarter and smooth production, of course if for some unforeseen reason the game or graphic novel cannot be delivered, we will refund your pledge.
After the campaign is completed, we would be able to refund you within 14 days, with fees included. We cannot get payment processing fees back from KickStarter after 14 days, so any refunds after this timeframe would have to be returned minus those fees. Keep in mind, however, that if we have already begun to package your pledge for shipping/fulfillment (4 to 6 weeks before actual shipping date), no refunds are possible. As mentioned previously, if for some unforeseen reason the game or graphic novel cannot be delivered, we will refund your pledge completely – including fees.
The refunds within the 14 day time period after the campaign is completed are reversed via Stripe to your credit card. Any refunds occurring after the 14 day time period after the campaign is completed may be processed via Paypal or reversed via Stripe to your credit card at our discretion.
This project is being funded in USD and any refunds processed will be in USD for the exact amount received in USD, excluding any applicable fees depending on the time of the refund being processed.

If you do not confirm your pledge rewards and shipping details from the notification email sent to you via BackerKit by the deadline (4 to 6 weeks before shipping), it will be treated as abandoned and you agree that we have fulfilled our obligation to you in full for your pledge. If this occurs and you contact us after your pledge reward(s) have been abandoned, we will look at each instance on a case by case basis in order to do our best to still refund or ship your reward at our discretion.
