Welcome to Etherfields Kickstarter campaign page! This is just a draft, that we will graduatelly update with new informations. If you feel, like you don’t want to miss when this game will go live, make sure to click “Notify me on launch” button at the top of the page. Thanks!
Etherfields is a new major miniature Board Game by Awaken Realms. We called this totally different BG experience a dream crawler – you will dive into surreal and artistically crafted world and follow one of a kind co-op / solo campaign adventure for 1-4 players. Everything you do, will change the strange rhythm Etherfields dream world follows and wildest fantasy is possible here.
Gameplay created by Board Game veteran, Michał Oracz (Author of This War of Mine: TBG, Neuroshima Hex or The Edge: Dawnfall among many others), will test not only your logical skills, but also intuition, deduction and emotional intelligence. Develop your character from scratch by advance deck-building, travel through dream-world map and go deeper into chosen dream-locations.
Amazing gameplay will be accompanied by one of the most unique miniatures and art we have ever made. We have put our whole artistic skills and heats into this project, making sure that designs are extremely unique and evoking illusory world of dreams.
Etherfields will be packed with fresh and unique art, your every skill, every action and even smallest event will be illustrated with beautifull piece of craft.
Your body has been taken… This is the only thing you know for sure. Your memory has faded away, when you drifted away to this strange world of dark dreams. You are an empty vessel now. Looking around, you find masks lying around… Which one will you choose…? What story will you follow…?
There is something coming, you can feel it – one dream, consuming it all, leaving a smell of poppy seed. What can the Funeral Witch want of you?
Your Heroes will be defined by their memory chests. Those will be skills with most surprising rules you will ever witness in a Board Game – from literally escaping current reality to your “dream room” for few turns up to time modification or changing the reality. Anything, that you can dream of.
Through the game you will very often modify your chest with amazing new cards, but also curses or filters.
Every interaction you will have in this strange world will leave mark – and remember, normal rules does not apply to Etherfields. You manage to finally extinguish ever burning Lighthouse in Tideless Port? It may help you find that key you have been looking for but Umbrageous will find you and hunt you down through other dreams.
During the game, fight will never be your only option – often, it might be quite bad decision, taking consideration that everyone who you kill can come back, probably angry at you. Instead, all the characters will be interact at 2 other levels – cheating and perception.
Etherfields will test you in all of the different ways: secret rules that you can discover and deduce by looking very closely on the map; drafting cards based on art or name only; guessing intentions of new encounters based on what they do.
