Raze the unnamed city's treasures! Roam its tunnels, challenge the other explorers for the most precious trinkets and get ready to fight the creatures waiting for in the mountain deeps!
Spoils of kadath is a miniatures game, playable in two modes: skirmish for two players (on a 90 x 90 board) or dungeon crawler for a group of 2/5 players. the average playing time is about 60 minutes.
In Spoils of kadath each player deploys a band of reavers, wayfarers and mercenaries, hired by a guild to explore the ruin of a lost underworld city. The scenario establishes the winning conditions, the environmental rules and the deploying mode.
The fantasy-horror setting is inspired by the unspeakable horrors and the gloomy atmospheres of the Cthulhu mythos. In the belly of the unnamed city, creatures familiar to “the lord of the rings” aficionados (those who love tolkien and role playing games) as elves, orcs and dwarves will face the eldritch outlandish entities which haunted H.P. Lovecraft's nightmares.

This game makes use of dice, cards, rulers and figurines to represent the clashes between greedy explorers in the ruins of the ancient unnamed city.
demo rule: http://www.grim-forge.com/download/732/
Before the game starts, the players deploy the miniature representing the members of their expedition along the border of the game table the game is divided in turns, each composed of 3 phases.
Tactical phase Every player creates his characters deck stacking in his preferred order the cards relative to his models. The order of the characters deck decides the action order of the expedition for that turn.
Main phase Starting with the acting player every player reveals a card from his characters deck and executes the model's action. The model can move, make melee or ranged attacks, cast spells or execute complex maneuvers.
Jokes of fate phase In this phase each player unleashes unexpected dangers on the the battlefield: lurking creatures, chasm opening under the explorers' feet and evil entities. The fate is uncontrollable so beware! The forces awakened by a player to destroy the enemy can backlash at any time.
Dungeon crawler The dungeon crawler mode generates the dungeon through a dedicated set of cards using a modified version of the basic ruleset. In this mode, the jokes of fate aren't activated by the players but they are automatically played every time a new room appears.
here some example of guild set
5 guilds of adventurers (Armourers brotherood, Arcane collegium, Covenant of the sydeways, Necromacers of the cabal, Gilded shapers) with 5 miniature each (4 heroes an 1 monster)
4 errant Lovecraftian creatures
16 mercenaries models (2 monsters,3 familiars,11 heroes)
The characters in spoils of kadath are represented by a miniature and a card showing their stats
Movement (mov): describes the model's movement in inches.
Defense (def): describes the model's ability to avoid atttacks.
Resistance (res) describes the model's imperviousness to hits.
Will: represents the character's mental skills, used to resist some forms of magic and psychologic effects like and fear and madness.
Mana: the amount of points the character provides to the expedition's mana pool which can be used to cast spells.
On a character's card are also described the model's skills and attack stats and effects. The attacking model makes a hit roll: 2D6 + BA against the enemy's DEF. A double 6 is always a hit. When the attack hits, the target makes a resistance roll: 2D6 + RES against the damage described in the attack. If the number is lower than the damage value, the model suffers a wound (double 1 is always a wound) and an additional wound for every 5 points of difference between the damage and the resistance roll.

Risks and challenges
There is no risk. The core set is complete (Artworks, Sculpts, rules). The only time to be spent on the game after the Campaign ends is for printing books and accessories and cast the miniatures.
GrimForge Miniatures and Tartar Miniatures have a huge experience of miniatures production, we have a large and very good team and all of the core set models are already sculpted, as you can see by the painted examples many model are already in production and all the material are fully play-tested. All core game cards and card stock is designed and manufacturers specified.
We have a clear plan how to complete this project and all aspects in our control, and we are fully confident we can ensure these occur in a time-appropriate manner and we will do our utmost to drive the other parts and partners on a daily basis.
As with any Kickstarter, if lots of Stretch Goals are unlocked, work amount increases. We have accounted for this, but please be aware that a massively over target campaign may affect completion date slightly.
