Limited Offer: Aysle Champion
Want to add your own hero to the ranks of the Army of Light? You get everything in the Aysle Treasure Coffer Pledge Level, plus we’ll work with you to create an official Core Earth or Aysle Archetype! This includes one custom Perk, Spell, or Miracle, plus art for the character, and the character you help create becomes the “iconic” version of that Archetype.
These Archetypes become part of the game and are available as a bonus to all backers who receive the normal digital Archetypes. The archetype is the property of Ulisses and we reserve the right to refuse any names or other features of the character that we consider inappropriate (such as inflammatory or vividly "against theme").
Ultra Limited Offer: Aysle Royalty
Add your Archetype as a Champion above, plus you earn a seat for yourself or a designated proxy at our very special GenCon event on Friday night. Last year's event was an epic battle that determined the fate of the Mystery Men. What will this year's game hold? Note that this offer doesn't include travel, lodging, or tickets to GenCon. This is a different night and a different adventure than the session for Nile Empire Vigilantes!
Best Value: The Aysle Treasure Coffer
For the best Aysle experience and the most value for your pledge check out the Aysle Treasure Coffer. It is the most convenient way to get all of the core items in this Kickstarter, plus much more! Note that the base price has gone up a little, but that’s because it features an entirely extra book even before Stretch Goals come into play: Greg Gorden’s new Cosms Collide mega-adventure! The Treasure Coffer also starts with a sheet of Threat Blips, 5 new Threat Cards, the Aysle Possibility Tokens, and the CD soundtrack for The Revenge of the Carredon...and tons more goodies waiting to be unlocked! Any Add-On labeled as "Treasure Coffer" comes in the box.
Aysle is a realm of magic, fantasy, and an eternal struggle between Darkness and Light! It's ruled by High Lord Uthorion —currently inhabiting the body of a Viking warlord—and his Dread Covenent of nightmares, necromancers, and nefarious lords. Uthorion attacked from above and below, with maelstrom bridges crashing down in the sea to bring his Viking raiders, and a massive ritual connecting the underground passages of Aysle to subways, cellars, and caves on Earth. Any break in the ground may now be a portal to treasure and danger.
Within Uthorion’s borders magic is powerful and miracles happen, but technology beyond a flintlock rifle sputter and malfunction. High tech doesn’t belong here, and reality tries to right it and transform items into something accepted by the Ayslish. Storm Knights resist this effect, and may bring modern weapons (and more) to bear against the forces of Darkness.
High Lord Uthorion didn't come to Earth alone. For the last century he had possessed Queen Pella Ardinay, the Lady of Light, and used her to corrupt her forces and undermine her allies: the elves and the last of the dwarves. She was recently slain and resurrected—freeing her—and now she leads the remnants of her armies to Earth in pursuit of her hated foe.
The Aysle source book is an expansion designed for both players and Game Masters. Inside you'll find:
- New Perks, Spells, and Miracles for advancing characters. Includes options only available to Beta Clearance Storm Knights, as they learn more about their own abilities and the nature of reality.
- Magic Gear! A bevy of new items for adventurers, and random tables for discovering items in coffers or on foes!
- An extensive status update for the default timeline. See the course of the first year of the Possibility Wars and the toll it's taken on Great Britain and Scandinavia. Includes a list of ongoing Delphi Council operations and who's who in the Aysle theater of the war.
- Get the statistics for the Dark Lord himself, as Uthorion takes matters into his own hands. Defeating him comes at a price, as Pella Ardinay found out the hard way!
- New threats. Angered Elementals erupt throughout the realm as raw magic courses across new lands. Knights and wizards roam the roads—many of them selfish and bent towards the ways of Darkness. The Dread Covenant has its own troops: monsters of legend, giants, undead, Vikings, and the foul spawn of Darkness controlled by Uthorion.
- Quest generation tables, new Eternity Shards, and more!
Revenge of the Carredon is a massive adventure suitable for several months of gaming. Start off in middle of the war, fighting in the trenches of Oxford. Tolwyn Tancred, the legendary hero who slew Uthorion’s strange dragon—the dreaded Carredon—and returned to save Pella Ardinay is cursed, and heralds the return of the mighty beast she seemed to slay. Embark on a quest to unlock the mystery of the Carredon’s origins and break the curse before Tolwyn is lost forever and Uthorion regains one of his most powerful weapons.
When Cosms Collide! Original Torg co-creator Greg Gorden returns with a new mega-adventure! The Cyberpapacy, technodemons, Mobius' shocktroopers, and others all seem to have business in the realm of Aysle—and the Storm Knights are caught in the middle. Join the action and uncover the mystery of what has so many High Lords moving through Uthorion's kingdom, and if anyone can beat the Dark One on his home ground !
The Aysle GM Screen has three panels. On the inside, all the most needed charts from Torg Eternity in addition to the new charts specific to adventures in Aysle. The outside features a single, gorgeous seamless image and the axioms and World Laws players need to remember.
Aysle Archetypes come within the GM Screen, and offer new stock heroes to draw from to fill the ranks of your Storm Knights. Meet the Champion of Light, a Core Earther transformed by the magic of Aysle into an armored paladin, the Necromancer, a hero touched by Darkness but who deploys her deadly spells against a common foe, and the Cleric of Dunad, an elf from Aysle who channels the holy power of the gods…and many more!

The "High Lords" came from other cosms—other realities—conquerors joined together to steal the Earth’s living energy…to consume its very Possibilities! The High Lords impose their reality and transform everything within, draining the Earth of its Possibilities in the hopes that one of them will become an ancient and all-powerful being called the "Torg!"
Earth is not defenseless. The player characters are "Storm Knights," heroes from all the cosms who fight against the High Lords. They use magic, technology, miracles, and even super powers against the Reality Raiders and their endless minions.
Join the fight and you can play a monster hunter from Orrorsh armed with alchemical creations, magical medals, or a "Slayer's Gun" loaded with various bullets carved with cryptic runes…a heretical cyberwitch decked out with spells and stolen cyberware...a dwarven "Dragon Warrior" with enchanted armor forged with amazing enhancements and steam-powered devices of doom...an "Electric Samurai" armed with high-tech "Ion Gusoko" armor and ion-charged katana... a psychic survivor who uses demonic Occultech...an mystical edeinos who can call on the miracles of a fierce and powerful goddess whose interventions are very real...a stalwart Core Earther, a realm runner who can negate your enemies' powers... or a pulp hero of the Nile Empire detailed above!
And so much more!
Each cosm in Torg Eternity doesn't just feel different, it plays different thanks to its Axioms (Magical, Social, Spiritual, and Technological) that define what can exist there, and most importantly its World Laws, rules that reinforce the genre and trope of the place.
To get started, you only need these Add-Ons:
- The Torg Eternity core rules. Add $50 to your pledge to get the core rulebook. It has all the base rules you need to play and build characters from all the cosms.
- The Torg Eternity Drama Deck. Torg’s unique gameplay requires the Drama Deck, which controls combat initiative and gives the heroes amazing options and opportunities. Add $20 to your pledge.
Shipping a little different this time! We are not calculating or collecting shipping when you pledge. When you make your final choices in the backer kit after the campaign shipping for your location and the bulk of items will be calculated and charged then.
We have shipping centers in Germany and the US, plus a distribution partner in Australia. This allows us to assure that we are US, EU, and Australia-friendly. We also have a partner in China (VFI Asia), which means many locations in Asia and the Pacific Rim are cheaper, though not all customs for those countries may be covered. Other locations will be more expensive based on how difficult it is to ship from those four centers.
Please Note – The Treasure Coffer, Sarcophagus, Survival Box, and Cargo Box are very heavy. The Cargo Box weighs in at 16 pounds (7.26 kg). We do our best to make packing and shipping these products economical, but we are limited by simple practicalities of size and weight.
Torg Eternity is developed by Ulisses Spiele, who also the publish of The Dark Eye , the Aventuria Card Game, Hexxen 1733, and more!
You can find numerous articles with rules previews in the Torg section of our website. If you are interested in more in-depth discussion, please join our forums!

Risks and challenges
We have delivered three previous Torg Eternity Kickstarters, and are quite far along on the writing and development of almost all the products included here. You'll get the first set of PDFs immediately on the close of this Kickstarter. Your support helps us make the game and all the accessories even better. And because the main products are almost finished, we are able to explore some brand new ideas as well!
There are always challenges with large-scale, international fulfillment. Some delays may occur that are out of our hands simply because we do not control every aspect of printing, shipping, and customs. However, we will keep working until every customer has their rewards.
