************************************************************

Nocturion is a Dark Fantasy, dice rolling, worker placement and resource management board game for 2 to 4 players.

Players assume the role of powerful noble houses that are trying to  fulfill quests and find their legendary heirlooms by gathering resources  and forging mighty armies of beasts with variable asymmetric powers.

The Noble house with most victory points proves its loyalty to the Emperor and wins the game.

The Game Art 

Well-known for his work on the game Brass, professional illustrator and  game artist Damien Mammoliti joined the Vesuvius Media Team to create  the stunning artwork of Nocturion.

From the box cover all the  way to the game board, the artwork is highly-detailed and beautifully  crafted.

Below you can see the contents of Nocturion's game box. Content from Stretch Goals will be added to the box as they are unlocked.

The Deluxe Components (and all related Stretch Goals) will be packaged separately of the core game box, but there will be enough room in the plastic tray to fit them.

The board game Nocturion is based in the world of Nocturion, created by Mark Alexander for the online game Nocturion. The world has a history of several thousands of years and many many stories to be told.

In the board game, you are the leader of a Noble House, trying to restore the world to its former glory... before being almost destroyed from demonic forces during the Sundering.

The graphic novel, Echoes of Immortality, follows the stories of Moira, an orphan from Waterwatch who struggles to survive in the post-Sundering world of Nocturion.

This 56-page, first volume, introduces chapters of Nocturion's rich lore and takes readers on a journey through the territories for which the Noble Houses are fighting.

The art & design is by Gregory Santorineos.

We will charge shipping after the Kickstarter concludes based on the actual costs incurred to ship. We will collect this via our pledge manager after the campaign ends. Shipping costs vary widely based on where you will receive your reward. Unfortunately, a one-size-fits-all price isn't manageable.

We will pay to ship your rewards to our international distribution centers. Based on your delivery address, we will either ship to you from one of our hubs below:

  • UK, Rest of Europe: GamesQuest
  • Germany & Rest of the World: Happyshops
  • Asia: VFI
  • Australia: Aetherworks
  • Canada: Snakes & Lattes
  • USA: QuarterMaster

The following is a list of rough estimates for shipping of the Nocturion basic pledge. Please keep in mind that these are just estimates, and costs may rise based on weight increases from unlocked stretch goals and any optional add-ons you choose. All prices are listed in US dollars.

Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico and other remote states are not part of the "US" category. They are included in the "Rest of the world" one.

PICKUP LOCATIONS 

If you happen to be close to any of the following locations, then you can choose the "Pick up" pledge and not pay shipping costs!  

Halifax, Canada

  •  The Board Room Cafe: 1256 Barrington St, Halifax NS, B3J 1Y6
  •  Cape & Cowl Collectibles: 536 Sackville Dr, Lower Sackville NS, B4C 2R8 

We will ask you to specify the exact pick up location during the survey at the end of the campaign.

Athens, Greece

  •  Κάισσα Πειραιά: Αριστοτέλους 11, 18535, Πειραιάς (τηλ. 210 4296845)
  •  No Label X: Μπόταση 4, 106 82, Αθήνα
  •  Game Rules: Αίαντος 10, 12133, Περιστέρι

We will ask you to specify the exact pick up location during the survey at the end of the campaign.

Essen Spiel'19

You will have an option to pick your game up at Essen Spiel'19. Just keep in mind that the game will be delivered way earlier than the conference (in August 2019 or even earlier if we manage it).

Gen Con'19

Our plans is to have the game ready for GenCon release. If we manage to finish production a little bit earlier than expected, then we will give you that option to our Pledge Manager too.

We want to thank all of the backers who have been supporting us and helping us create and deliver great games. That is why we have created a special Loyalty program.

Whenever you select a pledge that has the Vesuvius Media Loyalty Credit item in it, you will receive a $5 Loyalty Credit for our next Kickstarter campaign to be used for add-ons. 

This extra credit will be visible during the checkout process of the Hive Pledge Manager and you will be able to use it to buy add-ons (it can not be used for a main pledge nor for shipping costs).

For our returning backers who have supported us in any of the following previous campaign,

- Dwar7s Fall

- Covil: The Dark Overlords

- Dwar7s Winter

- Dwar7s Fall Collector's Edition

you will find the Loyalty credit assigned to your account, waiting for you to use it (unless you have already used it in the Dwar7s Fall Collector's Edition campaign).

Keep in mind that the Loyalty Credit is per campaign and not per game. This means that if you backed us only in one campaign, even if you added all three games in a bundle, you will receive $5 credit. We do this to be fair to backers who have paid more shipping costs by supporting us in multiple campaigns.

If you have Loyalty Credit from previous campaigns and choose not to use it in this one, then you will have an additional $5 for the next one.

To be eligible for the Loyalty credit, you must pledge for a reward during this campaign. Late-pledges and pledges of $1 will not qualify for any type of Loyalty credit (credit from past campaigns or credit for future campaigns).

Risks and challenges

PLEASE READ THIS SECTION CAREFULLY BEFORE PLEDGING TO THIS CAMPAIGN.

PRODUCTION RISKS

Even though we do our best to ensure a quality product and a timely production, there is always the risk of delays. Supplier shortage, holiday traffic and weather conditions are just a few of the reasons a production could be delayed. Vesuvius Media Ltd should not be held responsible for delays caused by third parties. In addition, some of the items shown might differ from the final product due to supplier/manufacturer error.

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 that there are items missing, please contact us at support [at] vesuviusmedia.com and 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 support [at] vesuviusmedia.com. We will send you replacements for the damaged items as soon as possible. The games shipped through this campaign will be sent out in a larger and stronger package, which will better protect the contents against damage.

DELIVERY DATE

Our current estimation for delivery is August 2019. We want your orders to be delivered on time as much as you do; however, history has shown that despite the best laid plans there is always a chance of delay.

UNDELIVERED ITEMS

If a package is not delivered due to a backer's 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 in our pledge manager through which you can let us know which items you have ordered as well as where you would like us to ship your order. Keep in mind that your order may be shipped sooner or later than the estimated delivery date. Please give us an address that will surely not change (If for example you think that you may be moving to a new house around April, please give us the address of a friend or relative to ensure a successful delivery).

SHIPPING

Please read the Shipping section above.

ORDER FULFILLMENT

Please note that your order may be delivered in multiple packages. This is done due to weight limitations for group shipments. Even though the items you ordered will be shipped at the same time, there is always a chance they will arrive to you several days apart. This may occur due to each country's postal service sort-and-dispatch system.

UPDATES

Through this campaign you may receive updates on Vesuvius Media's other upcoming projects. Such updates will not be frequent.

BY PLACING A PLEDGE ON THIS CAMPAIGN, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTAND AND ACCEPT THE RISKS & CHALLENGES STATED IN THIS SECTION.

Thank you very much,

Vesuvius Media Ltd.
