About

What is Nevermoor?

Nevermoor is a skirmish style horror adventure game for 2+ players set in the plague ridden streets of Nevermoor. Each player in Nevermoor controls a party of five characters from one of the remaining guilds within the city. Players face off on the streets of Nevermoor to obtain whatever objective their guild envisions.

At its core, Nevermoor is a territory control game where players capture buildings across the city with the models in their party. However, the game unfolds as characters level up, purchase new abilities/equipment, and cross paths with enemies in combat encounters. Nevermoor attempts to blend the strategic resource management of territory control with the teamwork based combat found in party based RPGs.

What we hope to accomplish...

With your help, we want to turn Nevermoor into a fully stocked miniature skirmish game. What we are showing (and offering as rewards) is just a fraction of what we have planned for Nevermoor. Our goal of $10,000 will supply us with the fund to begin large scale production on everything you see under the pledge rewards. However, with your continued support we can expand Nevermoor into the game we envisioned through our stretch goals.

The Story

Nevermoor was once a a gleaming city in the otherwise dark times in the medieval age. Where so many others had fallen, it had remained a beacon of triumph over every obstacle. Nevermoor is a massive city, its citizens were counted in the thousands, and its guilds were home to the greatest writers, thinkers, and warriors.

However, it seems that the perfect city could not stand forever. It started as a small issue. A handful of citizens were recorded having bizarre skin growths and infected pores. The city doctors dismissed it as minor infections and treated it as such. The days passed and not only did the initial patients not recover, but more and more began to pour in. Before long the city doctors could no longer handle the influx of new patients, and outside help had to be called.

Answering the call was a traveling guild of Plague Doctors. With them came the newest advances in medical treatment, potions, elixirs, salves, and injections. The patients besieging the city doctors all suffered from symptoms very familiar to the Plague Doctors, the Black Death. Treatment began immediately, but all the practiced remedies were failing. It was surmised that this was a new strain of the plague and had to be studied before a effective treatment could be found.

The citizens grew restless and before long dark whispers began that perhaps the plague could not be cures, that it came from a source that could nor be cured by medicine alone.

Riots began in the streets, and the death toll grew. Thousands died from the plague, and hundreds more in the violent streets. En masse the King's Guard were deployed to keep the peace. Their steam powered behemoths shuddered the very ground as it dispersed the masses. It was told that no force on earth could hold against the technological marvels held by the King's Guard. However, even with the quieting of the riots more and more citizens died. With no end to the plague in sight, the King of Nevermoor opened his gates to any who could supply aid.

Few dared to enter the city, many of the scholars who did risk the journey through the diseased city were struck down by plague or butchered by citizens whose minds had been driven mad with sickness. Of the scholars to reach the king only one caught his ear, the purple headed prince. His name was never spoken outside the private meeting hall of the King, and to those who addressed him he only voiced incoherent guttural shrills. He had come from a city at sea, a secluded miniature nation suspended above the ocean hundreds of miles from landfall. What he told the king was never known but upon taking his leave of the city, the ancient gates of Nevermoor closed forever.

It was learned many days later that the King had contracted the plague and was driven mad with rage. He declared the plague was a test from the gods. To see who of his subjects were loyal to the gods he would close off the city and watch the unfaithful die.

The King's Guard fought the decision dismissing it as madness and were cast out as traitors to the crown. Left to wander the streets and defend themselves from the blood crazed horde.

Nevermoor is a dead city.

Help us turn Nevermoor into the full miniature skirmish adventure game we've envisioned. Through your pledges, we will add additional guilds, expand the model range for each guild, develop alternate poses for characters, model alternate equipment for characters, and create a full set of full color hard board terrain. As our funds increase, more and more reach goals may be added in addition to the reach goals below!

Add a building to your pledge for $6.50. Estimated delivery time is April 2013
Add a building to your pledge for $6.50. Estimated delivery time is April 2013

With reach goal one, we will manufacture a full set of seven unique Nevermoor buildings for use in the game. Each building is full color, printed on durable chipboard, and laser cut for easy construction. These buildings are specially designed for Nevermoor in aesthetic and functionality. If we reach this goal, any supporter may add one to their pledge for $6.50 each

If funded, the Holy Innocents starter set can be chosen as on of your guild starter sets.
If funded, the Holy Innocents starter set can be chosen as on of your guild starter sets.

In Nevermoor you can fight the plague and die or you can embrace it and become one with its holy gift. The Holy Innocents embrace the plague with an open heart, welcoming its divinity into their life and bodies. Taking to the streets, they praise the holy plague with the upmost devotion. Every deformity and sickness becomes a right of passage into the embrace of the divine.

The madness of the Holy Innocents spreads like a sickness, even the King of Nevermoor is counted among their flock. Those who join them revel in the holy disease, those who refuse suffer an agonizing death covered in pestilent growths.

The Holy Innocents guild are the current ruling guild of Nevermoor. The outbreak of the plague has fueled their wide spread influence over the general populace and turned the king to their purpose. Without the influence of the other three guilds, the Holy Innocents will turn Nevermoor into a breeding pool from which they can launch their grotesque crusade.  

If this goal is reached, any pledger receiving a Guild Starter Set may choose the Holy Innocents starter set.

Additional Models can be added to your pledge as they become available.

The first Guild Expansion reach goal will allow us to sculpt and produce an additional five characters for each of the four guilds. These characters will be the first step in allowing players to customize the characters in their parties. The new skills and equipment these characters bring will further deepen Nevermoor's gameplay and better establish each guild's playing style.

The Guild Expansion 2 adds yet another five characters for each Guild. At this level, deeper gameplay begins to develop between the characters. New ability combinations using multiple characters and further synergy develops for each guild, building onto the in-game combat strategy.

The third and final Guild Expansion allows us to produce the full range of characters for Nevermoor. At this level, the final vision of each guild is complete. Charcters in the previous expansions may return with new equipment and abilities to alter their play style for a hybrid party role. New constructs and monsters will also have a dominating presence at this level, allowing certain guilds to run full parties of lumbering monstrosities.

In Closing

Thank you for taking the time to look through our Kickstarter. We hope you enjoy Nevermoor just as much as we have enjoyed presenting it to you. If you feel that Nevermoor may be something you are interested in supporting, please donate as every pledge helps. If you have any questions feel free to contact David Tepfer the creative director of Nevermoor, more at Tepferd@BareHanded-Games.com 

Risks and challenges

As with any large undertaking there is always the chance that something might go awry. However, over the past two years we have familiarized ourselves with the design, sculpting, and casting process of the miniatures previewed above. We have already begun talks with a series of manufacturers and prepared a great deal so that we will encounter as few problems as possible when it comes time to launch.

As we continue this project we will keep you informed with every step, so that no everyone who pledges will know exactly what steps we are taking to meet our rewards and furture production.
