Rivals: Masters of the Deep (Canceled)
An Underwater Steampunk Battle set in the World of Rivals. Rivals: Masters of the Deep is a fun, tactical, Miniatures Boardgame.
Rivals: Masters of the Deep is a 2-4 player tactical game for two or more players set in the cold dark depths of the Lurk. Players take command of either the Cog or the Nautilus, gather a fighting force and, through wise decisions and strategic moves, destroy the opposition.
IN THE DEEPEST OF THE DEEP SEAS...
lies the Lurk. It is dark but clear, cold but habitable and a swell of life begins where land ends. The Gorgangrackles eat the Anglerfin. The Anglerfin eat the Chumtails. The Chumtails eat the Trollsharks. The Trollsharks...well they eat each other. Between the moistened mountains of Bluff and Butte sprawl the villages of the Nautilus, a peculiar race of tentacle-bearded nature-lovers. The villages are said to reside on top of a rare mineral deposit of UnderAether.
Topside a Cog would give his left leg for a small glimpse of the material. The UnderAether could supply their factories & way of life for centuries and here it is resting under the tentacles of water breathers. The Rivalry has been fought for longer than most remember.

There are 3 sets of dice. White, Red & Black. Black dice are the strongest and have the highest chance of rolling hits while the white are the weakest.
The minis are all sculpted by Alain Viesca our Master sculptor and each are around 40mm.
In Masters of the Deep, Cog & Nautilus go head to head on the battlefield.
Your team will engage in fast-paced combat and interact with the board itself. The Creatures of the Lurk will come out of hiding, coral will try and eat you, Underwater rip tides will batter you all as you fend off your opponent.

Risks and challenges
From past experience, there are some inconsistencies in terms of timing when it comes to anything produced by a manufacturer, such as:
We don't believe this is in the least bit likely.
We have been manufacturing for a few years now and have come to understand the process greatly.
