About this project
NOTE: The dice shown above is the updated and final design for the custom dice.
Want extra sets of custom resources and dice? No problem, you can add them to your pledge. $7 for the wooden resources, $11 for the custom dice
The deluxe edition includes 25 custom made dice with Halfling inspired design illustrated by The Mico and 120 custom shaped wooden components. The custom dice and components are for Kickstarter backers only and will not be available in retail. However, they will be available in limited supply at conventions, through contests, online at the BGG promo store, and directly from our website.
Rise to Nobility is a worker (dice) placement game set in The Five Realms, the same fantasy world as Cavern Tavern. At the beginning of each round, every player rolls 5 dice that represent their available actions in the game. The locations in the city have requirements for certain dice values.
The challenging thing is that the total value of dice each player can use during the round is determined by their reputation in the city. Players start with 9 reputation and can increase or decrease their reputation by taking certain actions in the city. With numerous options for spending their dice, players will need to carefully plan their strategy and prioritize their actions.
Each player takes on the role of a landowner with a unique ability. Your goal is to rise from anonymity to the rank of lord. At the end of 10 rounds, the player with the most victory points takes over the head seat at the Stone Council and wins the game.
There are many paths for achieving victory.
Housing and Employing Settlers
You can focus on increasing the population of the new city of Caveborn by housing the incoming Settlers. If you provide them with a house and spend the goods they require, they will pay you with victory points.
Once the Settlers are housed, you can boost the city's economy by employing your Settlers in the Guilds and by purchasing Workshops for them. Ensuring that you have Apprentices and Guild Masters who are loyal to you will earn you money, resources, and victory points.
Negotiating with the Stone Council
Of course you can choose to play politics and try to deal with the members of the Stone Council to gain victory points. Each race has a representative on the Stone Council. You will be rewarded if you fulfill the demands of a Councilor. But the other races will resent your display of favoritism, and your reputation will suffer, hindering your options in the city.
If you’re low on money, you can sell your Goods at the port. And when you find yourself in tight spots, you can visit old reliable Berk the Town Clerk who can help you overcome some of your obstacles.
And don’t forget the High Queen in the White Castle. You can request an audience with her to improve your reputation in the city.
But your time to achieve your goals is limited, because representatives from all Five Realms are sailing to Caveborn to cast their vote for the new chairman of the Stone Council.
So, do you have what it takes to become a respectful lord, help Caveborn flourish and prosper, and take your seat at The Stone Council? Are you ready to Rise to Nobility?

Risks and challenges
Long before we pushed the launch button on Kickstarter, we made sure that every single detail had been addressed twice.
We want to assure you that we will handle everything from manufacturing to shipping and fulfilling with the highest level of professionalism. We are using the same manufacturer as we did with our previous game, so we can guarantee you that the final product will have high quality components and it will be manufactured on time as it was the case with Cavern Tavern.
For shipping we will cooperate with the same well proven fulfilling centers, who executed an excellent fulfillment with the previous campaign. With our hard work and dedication together with the professionalism of these manufacturing and fulfillment partners we managed to deliver the product to every home one month earlier than promised. Now that we are even more experienced we feel confident that we can deliver Rise to Nobility in an even shorter period of time.
If an issue do occurs, we promise we'll inform you and be transparent on how we are going to resolve it.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
