About this project
After ruling the universe for millennia, the gods have found their power diminishing and some have faded away completely. Those remaining are forced into a battle for their very survival: War would only lead to annihilation.
They have agreed that their battle for souls and power must be played out on the cosmic stage...
... and that stage only allows Rock and Roll.
How to Rock:
You always wanted to be a Rock God and now you can be. You pick a pantheon and select four gods to be your band (vocals, drums, bass and guitar).
You play a series of venues against the other gods using your set list cards to rock your band even harder, or to make it harder for the others to rock. Where you finish determines how many soul stones you collect. The pantheon with the most soul stones after two rounds of venues, wins and rules the universe........FOREVER!
We believe so strongly in this project that we funded all the art for the game prior to Kickstarting. The game art is complete and the rules are done.
Once the project funds we will need 2 weeks to make any custom character art from the "Be a Roadie" backer level, and the game will go immediately to manufacturing.

We like to support game stores around the world by offering the special pricing of the game to retailers during the campaign. We treat retailer backers just like other backers in that they receive their rewards before we release regular retail games into distribution.
If you're a retailer, please contact Dave at firstname.lastname@example.org during the campaign for pricing information. Additionally, all retailer backers will be featured in our manual and on our web site; with web link and location (store city) as a thanks for helping to get this game off the ground.
Retailers will need to provide some documentation to validate retailer status.
SolarFlare Games contributes just over $6.00 USD towards the shipping costs for ALL backers. For backers in the United States, this covers all shipping costs.
For backers in other countries, we apply the same $6.00 credit to all international orders to help and support our backers. We bulk ship our international orders to the UK for fulfillment from the UK. This is done to reduce the shipping costs around the world and prevent VAT costs for EU backers. This, also, makes the international shipping as backer friendly as possible.
The chart below shows what shipping cost (up charge) will be added when you back to cover the balance of the shipping costs.
The first shipping up charge is listed for the FAN level, and the second amount is for the VIP level or higher (which includes the large play mat).
The Lords of Rock was created and lead designed by Dave Killingsworth and will be published under the Brave Frontier Studios/SolarFlare Games umbrella.
There is more information available about me in the Full Bio link. I need your help because the production costs needed to bring the game to life must be paid months before the game can appear in stores. I have already paid for all the art and have already successfully delivered three other games on time, as promised.
As with all Kickstarter projects, you will only be charged when we meet our funding goal. The game was fully designed and tested before launching this project. We have worked to make the production timeline as short and quick as possible, but first runs take a little longer to produce than repeat runs.
Now, we need your help to pay the final production bill and rule the universe.
Co-Design work for Lords of Rock was done by Dave Ferguson. Dave Ferguson is the owner and lead designer at Castle Productions. He has successfully kickstarted The Great Debate, its first expansion and Succession!.
He loves to play all types of games and helps run several game meetups in his area. An active member of Dallas Designer's Group and has helped grow the base of DFW community.
Use these nifty Avatars for your favorite social media to show your support, and show your favorite pantheon how much you love them. These are the LEAD gods but specific characters can be requested via email.
Risks and challenges
SolarFlare Games has worked in gaming and publishing in various capacities for many years and has the experience to ensure that everything goes as smoothly as possible.
We believe in quality above all else and have chosen to use a well-established production organization with a deep experience in game production. They are an organization that have a proven record working with independent game developers.
Our last three projects, Thrash-Car, Dumpster Brawl! and Nightmare Forest: Dead Run were successfully funded and delivered on time. When funding ends, production will quickly begin and we will provide timely updates through each stage of The Lords of Rock production, all the way until it hits your table.
We believe that honesty is paramount for our supporters, our exacting standards and desire for quality and fun mean that you're guaranteed a game that looks just as good as it is fun to play, while offering many years of family fun!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
