115K: 2 new characters - Pinocchio & Gepetto

Welcome to the Realms Shop. Here you can find all the optional purchases that are available in addition to the contents of your pledge. If you would like an item then simply use the "Manage Pledge" button in the top right corner of the page. Increase your pledge by the amount of the item(s) you want. There are some items which are KS & S.O exclusive items.  

Promo Invaders Notes: These Invaders are the same as those we offered in the 1st campaign of 12 Realms. For you who already have this item, you do not have to pledge it again. Hoyuk Notes: You can find additional information about the game and the minis expansion in our previous campaign here.

THE FOLLOWING DARK LORDS ARE NEW FOR THE EXPANSION. IF YOU WANT TO GET THE DARK LORDS, INCREASE YOUR PLEDGE BY $20. THE DARK LORDS WHICH ARE INCLUDED IN THE CURRENT PLEDGE LEVELS ARE FROM THE FIRST EDITION, THE BASIC GAME.

THOSE WHO SELECT THE “EXPANSION: ANCESTORS LEGACY PLEDGE LEVELS” WILL ALSO RECEIVE THE REPRINT KIT FOR THE 1ST EDITION OF THE GAME (RULEBOOK, HERO CARDBOARDS & CARDS) FOR FREE. YOU CAN ALSO PURCHASE THIS KIT AS AN ADD ON ITEM FROM THE REALMS SHOP.

In the following image you see the recommended pledge level (Stretch Goals are also included). Due to the fact that the artwork of the expansion is under development, you will notice that some components are not final or are same as in the basic game, mostly the cards and the tokens. We will update them as soon as possible. The Fortresses, Round Tokens and Invasion Markers are common in both boxes.

In the following images you will see the different pledge levels. The pledge levels that include the Ancestors Legacy come also with the latest Stretch Goal: 1 Pyramid Miniature, 10 Glyph Cards and 30 Spell Cards. The artwork is under development therefore you will not see their images included in the Pledge Levels.

Exciting adventure begins as 12 Realms returns with an expansion entitled Ancestors Legacy! Four exciting new realms lie hidden in the Fairy World and you must prepare yourself to explore them so as to defeat all of their enemies. Kievan Empire, Golden Caliphate, Olympia, and Nile Valley are the new lands you will get to explore to learn their secrets. Ruslan, Sinbad, along with the rest of the heroes, will unite to fight against Marid, Sobek, and the rest of the Dark Lords!

Ancestors Legacy provides a much different game through its plots. There are now three different plots for both editions, which include a background story and significantly increase the difficulty level and excitement of the game – increasing the amount of decisions that players will have to make. A plot may have you playing with six realms (combining old and new lands), facing all of the Dark Lords, or creating a really fast game with a unique set-up. Now, more than ever, team camaraderie will be necessary in order to reach victory! 

Andromeda, Prince Ivan, Nefertiti, Perseus, Achnaton, Sinbad, Scheherazade, Snow Wolf, Ruslan.

Chernomor, Koschei, Ifrit, Marid, Circe, Thanatos, Sobek, Anubis.

NOTE: THE PLOTS WERE NOT FINALIZED WHEN THE PROTOTYPES WERE SENT TO REVIEWERS. THERE ARE SEVERAL PLOTS STILL BEING WORKED ON. DURING THE CAMPAIGN AND THROUGH THE STRETCH GOALS WE WILL POST THE FINAL PLOT RULES.

Robin Hood, Snow White, Red Riding Hood, and the other heroes of the 12 Realms are being reunited for one last epic adventure. The Dark Lords have joined forces to conquer and subjugate all the known Fairy Lands, and only the combined efforts of all the greatest heroes can halt their nefarious plan.  

All players must band together to stop the Dark Lords' overwhelming hordes from pillaging the 12 Realms. Individual invaders can be defeated by using each hero's different talents. To vanquish the Dark Lords you must claim a powerful artifact. In their quest to stop the invasion, the heroes can travel together between the lands or they can try to single-handedly defend a realm.

Before you watch or read the following reviews, note that some changes have taken place for the reprint of 12 Realms: 1) The unpainted minis will be glued, 2) We have created a game guide recommending how to combine the game with the variants & 3) The rules have been enriched with a detailed FAQ to help provide a solid experience!

In the following videos you will see one of the pre-painted sets we have made from our previous campaign:

Balena Ludens Review (Italian) / Rating 8.5/10

Przystaneklegnica Review (Polish) / Rating 4.5/6

iSlaytheDragon Review (English) / Rating 7/10

Dad's Gaming Addiction Review (English) / Rating 8/10

Deskovehry Review (English) 

The sales of the first edition of 12 Realms were great, but we believe this edition will do even better with the new changes we have made. In order to cover the fees associated with providing this amazing content, we need a certain number of committed backers. We want to offer many new things to the game and this community is the perfect fit to help make this happen. As for how these funds will be utilized, your support ensures that not only will we have the cash to pay our printers to make Ancestors Legacy but also to reprint 12 Realms. Additionally, money will be used for molds for the minis, sculptors, artists, set-ups, shipments, taxes, customs, and handling.

There is a discount for all pledge levels for both the items and shipping. Example: In EU we pay $25 ship fees for a package like 12 Realms. You will pay $10 to us and then we will pay the remaining $15. Thus, we will be responsible for 60% of the shipping fees so as to make things easier for you.

USA Backers: Shipping takes place via Fedex. You will receive your products on time, safely and you do not pay additional taxes or handling fees.  

EU Backers: Shipping takes place via DHL from within Europe. Thanks to that, you will receive your products on time, and you will not pay additional taxes or handling fees.  

Canadian Backers: The shipping fees we have calculated in the pledge level are based on delivery via Fedex. That means the ship fees are much less than USPS BUT most of the packs will be subject to customs so you may pay more. Of course we can change that and send your order via USPS but you will have to pay more ship fees depending on the order and the final size. If you want us to use USPS just contact us before you pledge.  

Australian-Asian Backers: Shipping fees takes place from China via courier in order to keep as low as possible the ship fees. This way you will not have to wait anymore much longer to receive your goods + there will be a safety regarding the products' delivery at your door.  

For the rest countries please contact us first!!

A special thanks to WAMP the friendly miniature painting community for their support on 12 Realms.

Many thanks to Paul Presley from Continue Magazine who helped us with the game's graphics and to Epitrapaizoume.gr for creating one of the KS videos!

Risks and challenges

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BEFORE PLEDGING ON THIS CAMPAIGN.

PRODUCTION RISKS
Even though we do our best to ensure a quality product and a fast production, there is always the risk of delays. Supplier shortage, holidays, and weather conditions are just a few of the reasons a production could be delayed. MAGE Company should not be held responsible for delays caused by third parties.

MISSING/DAMAGED ITEMS
When dealing with a large number of orders, there is always a chance that errors will occur. If, after you receive your order, you find out that there are items missing, please contact us at magecompanyinfo@gmail.com. We will send you the missing items as soon as possible. If your package arrives damaged, please take a few photos of all damaged items and email them to us at magecompanyinfo@gmail.com. We will send you replacements for the damaged items as soon as possible.

DELIVERY DATE
Our current estimation for delivery is February 2015. We are optimistic that this campaign will be delivered sooner than that. However history has shown that no matter how well you plan things, there is always a chance of delays caused by third parties. Please understand that we want your orders to be delivered quickly as much as you do.

UNDELIVERED ITEMS
If a package is not delivered due to a backers fault (wrong address given, backer didn’t claim the delivered package from their post office, etc) , the backer may be requested to pay additional shipping fees for the item to be sent out again.

DELIVERY ADDRESS
As soon as this campaign is over, you will be requested to complete a survey through which you can let us know which items you have ordered as well as where you would like us to ship your order to. By keeping in mind that your order may be shipped sooner or later than the estimated date, please give us an address that will surely not change.

SHIPPING
Please read the Shipping section above.
