We here at decobot are a small group of big dreamers. We simply aren't satisfied with the quality of table-top card gaming. It's time for something new and fresh in this space, and we have the answer.
Destined Legends features a fresh take on the table-top card game by putting you in control of 3 heroes, or Legends. You spend the game leveling up your party of Legends. As you level you acquire new items and equipment, all in a effort to gain a strategic advantage against your opponent. Your goal is defeat your opponent before they defeat you.
WE DID IT! With your help, we've hit our initial goal of $10,000 to make the Destined Legends: Battle Set, but we're not finished yet! We have pretty incredible plans for Destined Legends, and you can help make it possible. We have some stretch goals laid out below that will take your experience with Destined Legends to some pretty incredible heights.

As exciting as it is creating a new set of gameplay mechanics, its even more exciting to create a whole new world behind it. In Destined legends, you take on the role of heroes better known as Legends. These Legends are entrusted by the Dragon Guardians of the elements to guide humanity throughout the ages, and to protect them from the evils of the world.
Destined Legends features all original artwork from renound artists Scott Ferguson and Cari Corene. Scott is responsible for some of the best webcomics on the web including Nerf This and Scout Crossing. Cari is a super-talented painter, responsible for such visual treasures such as Story of the Door. We're incredibly lucky to have them on board. This game wouldn't be where it is without them.
12 x 18" Art Prints of this incredible artwork is available as special rewards to backers.
The product you are contributing towards is the 2-player Destined Legends - Battle Set. The cards will be printed in full-color on a high-quality card stock. The contents are:
- 60-card “Combustion” Fire Battle Deck
- 60-card “Eradication” Dark Battle Deck
- 20 Status Effect Cards
- 2x 6-sided dice
- 12-sided die
- HP Tokens
- Full Color Playmat
- Full Color Documentation & How to Play Guide
Your strategy of play in Destined Legends is defined by the element you choose. We have included the first two elements in this Set: Fire and Dark. These two elements are the most offensively aggressive elements and will provide an exhilarating experience right out of the box.
We've spent the better part of 2 years actively developing Destined Legends. But we can't move to the next phase without your help. We need to raise $10,000 in order to produce the game, and pay the artists we've hired to do the amazing art you see before you. Your contributions won't go unnoticed as we have some incredible rewards available.
Here is a visual breakdown of some of the rewards we're offering, so you can get a better sense of what you'll be getting!
Every Reward starting at the $250 tier, includes everything in the BETA TESTER PACK, and includes one more high value item. Here are some of them:
Breakdown of Items
Below is a brief explanation of items included in the rewards.
First Edition Battle Set - This defines our first production run of the game. The cards will feature a "First Edition" stamp on the bottom of each card, signifying your role in making DL a reality. This set is included in every reward $30 and up.
Promo Card - This is an alternate version of the Roslynn Legend card included in the game, featuring alternative artwork by Scott Ferguson.
Glass Dragon Card - Each Deck has 1 dragon card. The Glass Dragon is an all-elemental Dragon, meaning a Legend of any element can cast it. In addition to that, it also happens to be the most powerful Dragon in the game at Level 7. The card is very rare, and will never be sold. This Kickstarter campaign and possible future contests are the only chance you have to obtain cards like this. It features original artwork by Cari Corene.
Onyx and Ruby Dragons (a.k.a. Dueling Dragons) - The Dark and Fire Dragons included in the game. The two dragons are featured in one piece, entwined in battle. Artwork by Cari Corene.
Roslynn, Cedric, and Vega - The 3 Legends of the Dark element. Artwork by Scott Ferguson.
Jordan, Jayden, and Shaka - The 3 Legends of the Fire element. Artwork by Scott Ferguson.
Canvas Prints - Canvas Prints are printed on stretch canvas and are stretch mounted on a 1-inch wood frame.
Original Painting - Many of the pieces that Cari Corene has done and many that she has yet to do for the game are actually originally done in watercolor. You can be the proud owner of an original piece of Destined Legends' beginnings.
[NEW] Draft-Quality Beta Kit - You will receive this item as part of our Closed Beta Test Program, which will begin in January 2013. If your reward tier includes this item, you will receive a draft-quality version of the game so you can play it early and share your feedback with us. You will receive this in addition to the final copy of the game, and it is yours to keep. However, your actual participation for feedback is entirely voluntary.
In each box will be the “How to Play” guide to get you started with the game. However, with the official launch of the game, we will be releasing the full Rulebook online as a Downloadable PDF and also as an interactive book on iBooks 2 for iPad. With searchable text, video tutorials, a glossary, and an ever-updating FAQ, the DL Rulebook will become the ultimate resource to help master this deep and strategic game.
We will also be launching an official Destined Legends website to serve as the hub for everything DL.
In a team as small as ours, everyone wears several different hats. But here is a breakdown of each of our main responsibilities.
From all of us here at Decobot, thanks for your contribution. We can't wait to get this game in your hands!
Risks and challenges
While we are so incredibly passionate about this project, this is new territory for all of us. We have experience in mass production and vendors, but none of us have been part of a project of this magnitude. We believe that our passion for what this project represents will be our driving force towards success. We know it is a big undertaking and an even bigger responsibility to deliver a polished, well-crafter product to everyone. Even now, as we methodically piece together this Kickstarter page, we are hard at work, ever-perfecting out game.
We have spent the better part of the last year talking and dealing with various vendors in order to find the most efficient and highest quality of production that we can afford. As we venture into this next, and arguably most important phase of our production, we do expect challenges, but it is nothing that our dedicated and hard-working team can't overcome.
It has been our dream, over the past few years to be able to dedicate our lives to what we love, and we are eternally grateful to services like Kickstarter that can make something that would have seemed so impossible even ten years ago, a very legitimate reality.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
