Game Contents:

100 Day Deck Cards, 100 Night Deck Cards, 20-Sided Die & Color Rule Book

Hunter's Guild: The Vampire Forest is a card game where each player takes on the role of a Hunter seeking out fame, fortune & adventure. A powerful Vampire Lord has awoken from the undead realm and it's up to you and your Guild to banish him back to his eternal slumber.  Battle hordes of evil creatures, discover rare weapons & armors, even risk being infected by the Vampire while in search of ancient relics to repel this evil threat.  Be the first to collect all 4 Vampire Slaying Item Cards & track down the Vampire Lord to win the game!

This fast paced adventure game uses only 2 card decks & a single 20-sided die. Damage, health & inventory are all calculated with cards so there is no need for hit markers, multiple dice, paper or pens.  This makes for a fast paced adventure game that never pulls you away from the action!

Hunter's Guild: The Vampire Forest introduces a unique way to track damage.  Each Hunter, Creature, Armor & Shield card have Health Gems that represent the amount of damage they can sustain.  When damage is inflicted the cards are turned counter clockwise to represent remaining Health Gems.

Hunter's Guild: The Vampire Forest features 4 unique Hunter Cards for you to choose from as your game character.  Each Hunter card is 2 sided featuring their human form, as well as their infected form, if you fail to repel a Vampire encounter.

Playing as an infected Hunter has both pros & cons that can help or hinder your gameplay...so choose wisely!

Hunter's Guild: The Vampire Forest will now come with 4 separate Class Cards giving your chosen Hunter certain advantages while playing.  But with good...there always comes evil!  When playing as an Infected Hunter, you not only lose your Class Card bonuses, you also suffer from a Class Card penalty!

There will be 4 classes to start: Ranger, Thief, Warrior & Knight, all having specific advantages & disadvantages.  Eight Class Cards (2 of each class) will be included on all pledges of $30 & more.

These new Class Cards will be added as an optional rule & adds a new element of adventure into the game!

Hunter's Guild: The Vampire Forest features over 25 unique creatures cards.  Each creature was designed to completely immerse you in battle & bring this new fantasy realm to life.

Hunter's Guild: The Vampire Forest lets you equip your Hunter with a variety of swords, shields & armors to help you on your quest.  Equipping armors & shields help you to withstand more damage, while weapons modify your attack rolls & damage inflicted in battle.

Use any of these 4 items to repel the Vampire Lord's attack or be turned into a vampire yourself!  Collect all 4 item cards & hunt down the Vampire Lord to win the game!

Stay sharp...the Vampire Lord can appear at any time!   Are you prepared to repel his attacks?  Once you collect all 4 Vampire Slaying Item Cards, can you track down & slay the Vampire Lord before your fellow Hunters?

Risks and challenges

Join me on this adventure!

With any new adventure, challenges often come up. I have already sourced out a printer & even a backup printer in case any problems arise.

I have also been in the printing & advertising business for over 15 years & have great relationships with many printing companies.

As an artist & designer, I have worked on projects for such companies as Lucasfilm, Ltd., the NHL & the UFC. I'm a perfectionist & will only deliver a high quality product.

I also believe that communication is everything. I plan on frequent updates every step of the way. I can't wait to share new cards as they are developed & announcing the stretch goal exclusives I have planned. I'm excited to answer questions & receive feedback from our backers.

I look forward to having you all join the Hunter's Guild & help Epic Scale Games grow as a company.
