About

Sky Relics is a Tabletop Miniature Battlefleet game, where players command fleets to do battle in the skies for their Nation or for glory and riches. Iron Sky Hulks soar through the clouds hunting the next battle as their barrels heat up with Shells ripping through the air slamming and decimating heavy armour. Life and death rages on in the skies high above Targus, but will you, brave hero, be one who truly lives?

With this exciting Sky Relics two player core box set, launch two mighty opposing factions with all the material you need to wage epic battles, including crafted ship miniatures with flight stands indicating firing arcs.

 

  The Sky Relics game system uses ten-sided dice (d10s) to determine success as follows:
  •  A target number determines what you must roll above in a Roll Check to succeed.
  • Most Roll Checks are made with two or more dice along with other dice rolled for damage when necessary.

The game uses resource management for timing, which can be key to victory or defeat. Use your actions wisely as each resource has limits.

Use your Command ship to give orders to other ships in the fleet. Orders boost the ships in the fleet by adding a bonus.

                 Which Faction are You?

The Mals Domain

The Mal: Strenth through Aggression
The Mal: Strenth through Aggression

 The Mals have scavenged and dug up a fleet of common vessels that have been stripped to the frame, loaded with fortified armour, engines and heavy cannons. What the Mals lack in technical wizardry, they make up for in terrible firepower. Their guns are short range and do terrible damage to overwhelm their enemy defenses primed for sacking prey.

The Valdian Alliance

Valdians: Strength through Discipline
Valdians: Strength through Discipline

During the War of the Gods the Valdians suffered greatly and have never truly recovered. Their warships though few, are the last true battleships, stalwart survivors of the War of the Gods, forged by the God of Steel himself. The Sky Knight's dogmatic training, discipline, and technological superiority has led to their besting all challengers throughout their many years of service. Yet has their reign as champions finally come to an end?

A full sized (11”x 8.5” ) Rulebook, with complete rules for the two starting factions, background on the game world and as the more unlock sky fleets became available we expand on the rule book. There will also be quick start guide, in this set.

The Sky Fleet Rule Book is (A5) with complete rules for the two starting factions, basic background on the game world; and as more Pledges become unlocked, so will new Sky Fleets became available. We will expand on the rule book. There will also be quick start guide, in this set.

The basic rulebook is a free 20 page PDF containing the starting rules along with Print-and-Play pages filled with game piece cut outs, game cards, as well as a reference sheet. Try out the basic game for free and see if Sky Relics found itself a new home sky port in your games collection.

The expanded rulebook is a more expansive version from the basic rules, and based on funding levels. We hope to provide new artwork, a full compendium of back stories, gameplay tactics and advice, and more content to guide you in building your own world of Targus.

What is the objective of the game? And how do you win games? -

Sky Relics Fleet Core has various objective rules and special missions.

A special mission might be to escort wounded ships to the nearest shipyard. Another special mission might be to destroy a specific sky outpost. Typical objectives during a mission might be to race against your enemy in acquiring map counters in the skies. Another objective in the mission might require you to board and capture an enemy vessel, followed by a secondary objective in bringing the ship back to your dock.Players are also welcome to create and share their own objectives and missions for added fun.

Incorporating missions and objectives can help avoid games that are basically just a slugfest and always end up as a big scrum in the middle of the table. Also varying the objectives and deployments helps make the game feel exciting and avoids the same faction being able to maximize their strengths in every game, encouraging players to think on their feet and improvise.

Of course, for those who love a good o' fashioned throw down, Fleet vs Fleet rules are also available. Win by totally destroying the opposing fleet, or by scoring the most victory points. You decide.

One of the long-term goals of the Sky Relic's team is to set up tournaments and award prizes to the winners and rewards for miniature painting.

In a far corner of the vast darkness of space, there is a planet rather unassuming but of great import. The fallout of a devastating age has left this planet, Targus, harshly divided between the sky-born, those who dwell amongst the clouds and those restrained by the cut-throat lands below. It is a land where magic and technology are blended and the norm, a world of horrors and terrors, yet single acts of wonder raise the hopes of men. Planet Targus Planet Targus.

The world of Targus
The world of Targus

 The sky born Valdians, are the Knights who were left to protect the skies of Targus. Entrusted with the lost tech of the gods, that now other nations jealously eye with contempt.

The mountain dwelling Mals, exiles who were left to the North after their defeat in the War of the Gods, have been forced to survive in the cold tundra with little means to defend themselves. The cold tundra has left them as icy and steeled as their surroundings.

The lofty reaches of the forgiving skies seemed forever out of reach to the forlorn Mals, yet fate had different ideas in store. A devastating earthquake revealed a long-abandoned shipyard buried deep in the mountain crags. The Mals quickly seized the bounty and set off for the skies never looking back.

Hundreds of years of peace, up till now only breached by small skirmishes with bandits and renegades, would soon be broken. The last major conflict to shake the calm was the Commonwealth Rebellion, when a band of nobles demanded the Valdians share their wealth of ships and lands in tribute to the nobility. Although the conflict lasted a few years, the Commonwealth nobles were soon defeated and exiled. Born from the ashes of this conflict, the people of the Commonwealth and their new nobility have joined hands with Valdians to found nation of the Alliance, with the Valdians standing tall as leaders and protectors. The stage is set, and now high in the skies of Targus two nations are on the brink of war. The Valdians stand tall to fulfil their divine duty of protecting the skies, the warrior Mals storming from the stronghold to fight to the last for the future of their people.

The stage is set, and now high in the skies of Targus two nations are on the brink of war. The Valdians stand tall to fulfill their divine duty of protecting the skies, the warrior Mals storming from the stronghold to fight to the last for the future of their people.

Choose your side, the valiant Sky Knights tasked to protect the world, or the brutal Mals raging to regain what was lost. War is coming as hard iron hulks of the Mals blast through the pristine Sky Knights’

Shipping

 Shipping is NOT included in your pledge and will be calculated once the campaign has completed. You will be charged during the Pledge Manager for shipping. We once all the unlocked goals and extra and what not, then we can charge you the right amount for shipping, not a penny more or less to be fair to everyone.

So we will be charging shipping once the Kickstarter is over, based on the actual costs. We will collect the information via our pledge manager after the campaign ends.

The final costs will depend on which stretch goals have been unlocked, which pledge level you go for and your location.

Based on weight estimates, we expect the costs to be approximately:

USA: $10

Rest of the World: $18

Key Notes

Is there a Campaign mode? Yes, the campaign book will focus on the primary two nations, the Mals, and Valdians. Which will offer extended gameplay. As an SG this book will feature the idea with campaign master they set up the field and players can do co-op play together earn points to buy new ships or repair ships between battles.

Sky Relics has done two other Kickstarter's what happen? The first Kickstarter had problems, ships came mounted on a flat base and the rules had errors that would have caused backers to lose faith in us. We also ran into some problems with the games overall design, there was a conflicting vision between a skirmish style or a more traditional board game. We tried to offer both versions, but it didn't work out.

The second Kickstarter I made the mistake to make the game too quickly with fleet skirmish game and the rules were not ready. So I took my time to get the game ready, I didn't want to rush this time. We worked on the game developing it over time and to work on the ship designs.

What about the rules? First rules set worked, but it didn't work well for a skirmish game or fleet style game. The rules either worked well for the skirmish gameplay but not for expansion of the sky ports. We kept developing the game until we found the balance that will work for all game types we have planned for the future of Sky Relics.

Does the Commonwealth come back? We have plans for the commonwealth nobles to use what wealth they left to buy ships and rebuild their fleet once more.

Are there sky monster? Yes, the skies have flying monsters from sky whales to Rock Gar which are nasty beasts. So how does the monsters work in the battle? Roll chart A.I. Which see what and how the monsters moves and who attacks.

The Sky Relics Team

 Since 2014 Sky relics games team have been hard at work creating sky Relics, a skyship battle game. With earlier versions the game was very different, with the team has increased in size since its early inception, Sky Relics have high-quality miniatures, were most miniatures are ready to prime and print no assembly required with tactical gameplay.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges

There are a number of risks with any Kickstarter project, and we have worked to lower these risks with ours.

The rules are almost complete, and other parts of the game will undergo further playtesting, and we have a team rich in expertise to carry out that testing. All of the miniatures design is complete and ready for 3D printing, and after that tooling and production.

We fully expect to be shipping in November 2018, or sooner, and we are hard at work finishing off Mods Cards and Crew Cards.

If we do experience any unforeseen delays along the way, we will update our backers to make sure that our stakeholders know what is happening.
