About

Targus was once a barren rock in the darkest depths of space. Alone and far from the rest of the cosmos, few stars could even shine the distance away. It was there, at the farthest reaches, the gods found their new home. Darren, Lord of the Cosmic Flame, created a star for the planet, and everyone knew it as Darren’s Fire. The rest of the gods, over a thousand many, poured their divinity into Targus and gave her life. The mountains let go of their roots and ascended to the sky. But all for a heavy price, for the gods had exhausted their immortality, and they only had a few millennia left to live. They spent the last of those years cultivating civilizations and engineering SkyShips hoping to ensure Targus' future. But the gods were not able to handle their mortality as well as we do.

Centuries after Malack's devastating war, peace and prosperity reigned. However, Targus once again must endure another war for survival. This time the battles are taking place in the heavens amongst the floating mountains. The people have inherited a world littered with ancient secrets, and they have discovered the power of the gods hidden inside the precious stone of the floating mountains.                                                             

Now with transcendence on the horizon, it is a mad dash for all the power hovering in Targus’ skies. Conquer the heavens with the SkyShips, ancient gifts from the gods. Swear your allegiance and claim your stake on Targus. Will you help the strange hybrids of the Cortez Family finally find a home for their nation the Commonwealth? Or will you defend your right to personal prosperity as a rebellious Sky Pirate? Each side has its own collection of heroes, villains, and extra ordinary ships that have caused ripples and rumors throughout the ports. War is never simple, and ideologies will clash as the people of Targus adjust to the dawning of a new age.

Your fleet will crack the skies in a fast paced, exciting fight for the floating mountains. Customize your aviation armada with a crew and a Captain of Fate. With them, discover Targus' secrets and her powers in this exciting table board war game like none other.

2-5 players.

One would think the whales to be the first victim of a gods interference with the natural order and sink to the bottom of their floating seas. However, the gentle beasts couldn’t swim any deeper. Against their will they rose out of the water, above the surface, and into a vast new world. The first mortal beings of Targus, the sky whales. Witness to the chaotic experiment we call life. Their entire species evolved out of the water in trade for the depths of the planet’s sky. For it was a vast planet. One that the gods hid some of their greatest treasures.

Targus skies are an uncharted part of the world. It once was the home of the gods, and their divinity has made the stones of the floating mountains precious. Even though the Commonwealth pioneers the rich skies for their own, there will always be those who wish to stake their own claim. Targus should be so lucky to have Pirate King Jack lead and organize the criminals of the air, for he is an honorable man and once a general back in the days of Malack’s War. Although a leader of pirates, Jack has seen the destitute between the cracks of the Commonwealth’s society. He sees clearly the grave costs of the Cortezian capitalism, and he will band as many pirates as he can in order to weed out the corruption that greed spreads. If not, then to at least feed the ones overlooked in society.

A nation born of godless gypsies, the Commonwealth has brought Targus into a new age. Their restoration of the SkyShips has lifted the vagabond people from forever wandering the Targus floor. Above, they have found a true home amongst the floating mountains. Since then the day when an entire nation of people rose from the floor, was forever known in Targus history as “The Ascension”. The Commonwealth people have only to thank their nation’s leaders and founders, the Cortez Family. The first mixed race of beings on Targus, the Cortez Family have pulled themselves out of heresy through charm and trade, and they have established one of the most influential nations. They alone allocated all resources that brought the world into a new era, and they have laid claim to the most precious riches of the planet. However, a claim’s legitimacy is carried only to those that adhere.

SkyShip Overview                                                                             

When the gods realized their immortality was lost, dread settled in their mind. They had spent countless millennia turning Targus into something bright and beautiful in the darker reaches of the cosmos, their mortality gave them all a sense of futility. In order to ensure their sacrifice would not be in vain, the last nine living gods passed down their sentience into nine races of people. Each would represent a nation, and each nation would watch after Targus as their creators had. But Targus is a large world, and in order to claim dominance over the lands, Steeldius, Lord of Craft, built them the SkyShips, so that the people could watch over Targus as they once had. Regardless of their miraculous feats, however, the SkyShips were twisted into war machines since the fall of Malack, God of Chaos. Now, even though the SkyShips are vessels of prosperity, they also fly with destruction on their backs. 

We hit our first first social media goal! Because we've been re-tweeted 100 times, we are throwing four extra miniatures into all boxes! Enjoy, and keep an eye out for the new social media goal next week!

Captains of Fate                                                                                   

There are thousands of SkyShips flying the Targus skies. But there are only a handful the universe deems greatness. Each playable captain is a Captain of Fate. Whether through destiny or pure ambition, each of these captains plays a larger role in Targus’ history than any of them realize. Pick a captain and follow their fate to bitter ends or glorious victory for the sake of Targus’ life.

 Special Note: Every SkyShip has been made individually by Steeldius, and each has been on its own adventure through war and tribulation. Therefore, every SkyShip is unique in their designs and abilities.

The Sky Relics team is committed to the world of Targus above all else, and we believe that gaming is the best way to immerse yourself into a fantastical world. Thus, every tiny detail we can include, every mechanic we can add to the game, will bring you, the player, deeper into into Targus. It's a first hand experience, and it's all thanks to your backing. Each stretch goal creates more miniatures, more cards, more scenery pieces, and new captains to every pledge level and the game entire.

A sky legend has been through the worst battles. Some say it's through luck and other's skill. Regardless of the reason, the SkyShip becomes legend for the feats they surmounted. This is the Cervantes. One of the first hundred SkyShips ever made. Before the cultivation of the Life Trees, Lord Steeldius used the body of a god to power these ships. Any remnants of their power has seeped into the hull making SkyShips like none other. Cervantes is death in the skies.

The mighty heroes of Malack's War were men and ships of legend. Command these fearsome living gods of war into battle, The Zagmar is known for it broadside battle tactics. Commanded by the once great hero Zalamore, he was one of the greatest swordmasters in Targus. The Arminius is one of the last ships of it kind, Malack had set out to destroy every Heavy Ryker ship. But the fearless war master Amadius flew the Arminius against Malack's fleet and help win the dreadful war. The great ship Vek Uldok is the staple of all dwarven mining ships. Madrock, The Axe Lord of the North, used the ship's mining tools as devastating weapons against Malack's forces. Now, over a thousand years later, these legendary ships have been rebuilt next to their former glory. Their commanders, though seasoned and grizzled, have stepped out of their legend to once again make their mark on Targus.

About Us

The Sky Relics team has over 15 years of gaming experience and a few years in manufacturing. In the last year, the Sky Relics team has tested with over 100 molds and models using hi-res printers. The rules have been play-tested for hundreds of hours, and we have played with people of all ages at conventions. Everyone is saying the same thing: it’s a very cool game, easy to learn, and don’t change a thing.

Every model sculpture has been designed with a 3D program. They are then sent to the 3D printers, and molds are being made at this very moment. All the cards, boxes, and game boards are printed through Ad Magic. 

We do not plan to increase the size of the Stretch goals, but if we get your full support and reach our stretch goals ahead of schedule (which would be awesome), we have a second wave of Stretch Goals ready to launch.

The Sky Relics team will ship out all completed Kickstarter pledges before the public release of the game. If we are running late, then the game released date will be pushed back in order to ensure the pledgers will receive the game before retail distribution. Despite our best efforts, we do not control the winds of fate or the postal delivery services. But we can guarantee that you will receive your copy before Sky Relics goes to retail.  

                                                                                                           
     

Risks and challenges

We know the steps necessary to make a quality finished product. We have spent the last 2+ years working on the fantasy of Targus, and we have already invested thousands of hours and dollars into the development of this project. Rewards will be completed and shipped in the order they are pledged including all associated add-on's and/or stretch goals.

We want to do anything that will make Sky Relics perfect for the player, so we welcome any and all questions and will do our best to answer in a timely manner. The game is very close to finished. The design has been play-tested and refined for the past 24 months. More than half of the book is edited, and the design, style, and layout templates are done. All that is left to do is production.
