12 Realms: Ancestors Legacy

5 likes

Hi everyone,

Is been a while since our last update. 

On May 10th, 12 Realms returns with an expansion entitled 12 Realms: 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, Prince Ivan, Sinbad, Andromeda, along with the rest of the heroes, will unite to fight against Marid, Sobek, Anubis and the rest of the Dark Lords. 

Ancestors Legacy will provide a much different game through its Plots. There are now 3 basic different Plots for both the first edition and new one, which will include a background story and will significantly increase the difficulty and excitement of the game – increasing the amount of decisions that players will have to make. Now, more than ever, team camaraderie will be necessary in order to reach victory! For each of the 3 Plots, you will discover different and customizable game set-ups. 

The biggest challenge of this edition will be comprised of two specific plots which will take the game to an entirely different level. Plots are something completely new for 12 Realms. 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. No matter what your choice will be,12 Realms: Ancestors Legacy will take you to another world where your actions will determine the future of the Fairy lands and all the known Heroes. 

We have prepared 5 more Plots for the rest Realms too and will be revealed as Stretch Goals. You know the game, you have played it, some of you have helped us by pointing some flaws.

New features on the reprint:  

*The unpainted minis will be glued from now on.  

*A Reference Sheet recommending how to combine the game with the Variants  

*Rulebook has been enriched with detailed FAQ in order to have a solid experience!  

Some of the features of the new edition:

*Hand-painted miniatures.  

*Exclusive KS gameboxes.  

*Exclusive minis and cards.  

*Early bird pledge levels.

We will reveal each Plot to you during the campaign and in fact we would like to let you participate in some of the mechanics regarding the Plots. Now our company has found a new home to produce the games with much better quality and responsibility plus we have few more people who help on checking the files.

If there is something you want to see in the 2nd edition or even in the 1st one, or you have any suggestions, proposals, feel free to post a comment here.

    5. Creator Nicolas Le Baut on May 10, 2014

    10. Creator Mike Norris on May 8, 2014

      Ok gotcha...please keep us posted. :) I want to hop in during the first few seconds of the kickstarter.

    11. Creator MAGE Company on May 8, 2014

      Mike we will delay a little, I cannot launch it yet, I wait minis, photos, videos, goals, too many things yet. We are ready by 60% regarding the set up of the campaign. There is a high possibility to launch on Monday.

    12. Creator Mike Norris on May 8, 2014

      Wiat...my bad. I am glad i checked because 10AM EST is 7am PST. :)

    13. Creator Mike Norris on May 8, 2014

      Wow..we are only a couple days away from the opening of the kickstarter. I am getting very excited about it.

      How many days will it run?

      And it is looking even nicer with the AL artwork. :) I will be refreshing my computer at 8am on Saturday PST to get my painted expansion!

    14. Creator MAGE Company on May 1, 2014

      Thanks Marcus!
      We work it here but we will need a lot of people to support it.

      Now I work on tuckboxes and the Ghost Galleon. we search solutions and good prices.

    15. Creator Marcus Ervin on May 1, 2014

      That is excellent news!

    16. Creator MAGE Company on May 1, 2014

      sorry I mean cards and rules. not cards and tokens!!

    17. Creator MAGE Company on May 1, 2014

      Spread the news around.

      IMPORTANT NOTE: Regarding the kit of the reprinted cards and tokens of the 1st edition, we will wait few days to check the progress of the game and if things are ok, then ANYONE who will buy the Ancestors Legacy will take the reprinted cards and tokens at NO charge!

    18. Creator Mike Norris on May 1, 2014

      Wow!!! Very nice!

      I will let my friend know today. Hopefully he will join in. :)

    19. Creator MAGE Company on May 1, 2014

      @Mike: GOOD NEWS. Check again the prices! We reduced a lot 2 levels!!! Now we are ok.

    20. Creator MAGE Company on April 30, 2014

      @I have no prices yet. I will do my best.

    21. Creator Dheyrdre Machado on April 30, 2014

      Awesome price for the painted set :)
      How much is the shipping?

    22. Creator MAGE Company on April 30, 2014

      @Mike: I mentioned:
      NOTE: The campaign is finished by 50%. A lot of things to be added and/or changed. However your feedback is most welcome.

      So is not finished. We will add pics soon.
      Early bird for painted? No. The prices are already law.

    23. Creator Mike Norris on April 30, 2014

      Looks good...but are their going to be more pics of the expansion? It looks all like 12 Realms.

      Also I showed my friend who was considering both...but there isn't an early bird level for both painted?

    24. Creator MAGE Company on April 30, 2014

      Here is the preview link from Ancestors Legacy: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/magecompany/398476483…

      NOTE: The campaign is finished by 50%. A lot of things to be added and/or changed. However your feedback is most welcome.

    25. Creator MAGE Company on April 30, 2014

      @Mike: We already have started making sleeves for our previous game Hoyuk. For 12 Realms we will wait first to see how it will go few days and then we will add them.

    26. Creator Mike Norris on April 30, 2014

      @Mage - Sorry...one more question. Previously there was talk about sleeves for the square cards. Any chance of seeing them in this kickstarter?

    27. Creator Dheyrdre Machado on April 29, 2014

      @Marcus
      I hope those stuff are given for free to us. I've paid another just in taxes.

    28. Creator MAGE Company on April 29, 2014

      Ok. Where should we mention it? At the top of the main page?

    29. Creator Pseudotheist on April 29, 2014

      "@Pseudotheist: This will not upset the rest people who will see them open and then will be restricted?"
      I don't think it will upset people any more than seeing X number already sold out. If you do it, just make sure to note "only guaranteed available for the first 24 hours" or something.

    30. Creator MAGE Company on April 29, 2014

      @Mike: Yes we will do that too.

    31. Creator Marcus Ervin on April 29, 2014

      I would definitely like to see what Pledge levels will be available ahead of time to plan appropriately.

      I'm also hoping that there will be some sort of add-on for those who went "all in" on the first kickstarter to allow us to purchase any of the enhancements (new rulebook, new box insert to better hold the minis, etc.) without having to buy the original game again.

      Also, count me in as those who hope there will be enough of the painted minis pledge level.

    32. Creator Mike Norris on April 29, 2014

      Mage - Are you going to do a bundle wit the main game and expansion? I have a friend that may be interested.

    33. Creator MAGE Company on April 29, 2014

      Erik: People want their minis glued, even the unpainted. The feedback was strong about 90% wanted them glued.

    34. Creator MAGE Company on April 29, 2014

      Mike: 10 morning NY Time. Yes I will send email to everyone.

    35. Creator MAGE Company on April 29, 2014

      @Dheydre - Greg: Of course we will offer again Painted sets and in the basic game and in the Ancestors Legacy. Don't worry on that. The cost will be similar to the st edition and I think a little cheaper. We arrange the prices as we speak.

    36. Creator ☜☆RSF☆☞ Hero-U AGL589 member on April 29, 2014

      Definitely want to make sure I get on board with a painted set to match my current copy. ;-)
      @speedster Good points, yes I believe so too (re; adding to restricted amounts for a tier - you can apparently increase them... or reduce them - but not below the current backer count obviously) and hello. :D

    37. Creator Erik Fischer on April 29, 2014

      May I ask, what is the reason behind the glued unpainted minis? This makes the terrain building more difficult for the painted minis... However, I might be in minority, if most of the backers does not paint their minis...

    38. Creator speedster -Armikrog Army Annelid- $4.96 on April 29, 2014

      Regarding the restricted tiers, I think it is possible to add more slots to a tier later if they get scarce, e.g. if they are starting to sell out in the first 24 hours

    39. Creator speedster -Armikrog Army Annelid- $4.96 on April 29, 2014

      More painted minis! First batch were so nice!

    40. Creator Mike Norris on April 29, 2014

      Mage, 10:00am or pm? Anyway we can get an update on the levels before the KS starts so we all know what to get.

      And yes here too...I want to get my painted minis again!

    41. Creator Greg Sawchyn on April 28, 2014

      I totally agree with Dheyrdre. I would be really upset if I wasn't able to get a set of painted minis in Ancestors to go with my set from the 1st game.

    42. Creator Dheyrdre Machado on April 28, 2014

      Also, how much time it will last?

    43. Creator Dheyrdre Machado on April 28, 2014

      Please Mage, make a tier for the 1st backers of painted minis. Like an exclusive tier. So we can have a chance of getting other set of painted minis. By the way, how much is it going to cost the new painted tier?

    44. Creator MAGE Company on April 28, 2014

      @Jared: Yes, indeed.

      @Mike: 10:00 NY time.

    45. Creator Mike Norris on April 28, 2014

      What time will it start?

    46. Creator Jared Bond on April 28, 2014

      Wow, so many great sequels coming out this month!

    47. Creator MAGE Company on April 28, 2014

      @Pseudotheist: This will not upset the rest people who will see them open and then will be restricted?

    48. Creator Pseudotheist on April 28, 2014

      Please do not restrict the Early bird pledges by strict number. If you must have Early Bird pledges, leave them open for the first 24 hours before restricting them.
