About this project

Ritus is a sacred-dystopian card game where you will interpret an Abbess and one of the five religions of the game (Abyss, War, Future, Chaos, Order). The imperative is to win by becoming the religion with the most followers and money. To do this you just need to destroy and convert the enemy’s followers, of course playing your warrior nuns!

Before Sistermination there was the Order. The Nunspeakable Book of Truth foretold about the year 2101 p.d., also known as the Year of the Beast. The world is a "goat shaped athteist chasm " and "Sistermination is a divine symptom of the Eclipse covering these dark years". It is known that the different Faiths in the field do not in fact intend to forgive anything to their opponents. Each has to deal with the heresy of others, worse, the blasphemy of atheist populations spreads, too often aided by groups of outcasts nuns. It is my task to believe in and spread the New Faiths and defeat atheism and heresy. For it is much worse to have no Faith at all then to misplaced it in a flawed Faith. This is what we must belive in. This is your task as well!

The Well Hidden Curate of Nicomedia, 2137 p.d.

Ritus Sistermination is a take that card game that differs from other games of its genre by adding some original and dynamic mechanics. In Ritus the game phases are completely revised: during your turn you will not plan your attack, but you will still struggle against your opponents for points or resources. Mainly though you will focus on building your strategy and improve your diplomatic relations with other Faiths, preparing to turn them the other cheeck. At the end of each of your turns, infact, every other player will have the possibility to attack you, as you will have the possibility to attack them at the end of their turns. These dynamics creates a nice blend of diplomacy and take that mechanics in which everything can happen and balances beetween Faiths are constantly shifted. A limited number of skills characterizes each Sister card. Every Faith includes a number of them with similar perks in order to diversify the type of game of each Faith.

How we spend the money. We want to produce 2000 high quality copies and give them out for a special price during the KS campaign. So roughly 80% of the budget is going into printing costs, while the remaining 20% will be used for illustrations and merchandise.

Risks and challenges

The game system can be said to be complete and just needs the last refinements to be percfectly balanced.
The making of the Artworks will proceed in parallel with crowdfunding.
Therefore changes in the appearance and function of some elements of the game could occur, anyhow such changes will not be structural, since the basic mechanics are defined already.
We calculated the shipping costs on the basis of the ordinary rates of our national mail service. However, we feel the need to warn you that these costs may vary, depending on the area and the amount of submitted material.
