RAINN Studios is running a KickStarter campaign for a new board game called Incantris and we want to give you all the information we can to help you know all there is to this wickedly cool game.
When you roll up a character in your favorite online MMO, such as World of Warcraft, Rift, Guild Wars 2, ArcheAge, Neverwinter, The Elder Scrolls Online, or when rolling up a new character in your favorite pen and paper RPG such as, Dungeons & Dragons, GURPS, Tunnels & Trolls, Mage from WhiteWolf, OR when you put together an army in your favorite miniatures battles game such as Warhammer Fantasy, do you typically lean towards the spell slinging magic user?
If so, then Incantris is the game for you!
Even if you only occasionally play a magic user or healer then Incantris is the game for you!
In fact, if you simply enjoy playing fantasy based game, Incantris is the game for you!
Okay, so here’s the deal, you get to take on the role of a spell slinger and you duel it out with other spell slingers. It’s like a PVP battleground that caters specifically to Mages. That’s the game boiled down to it’s basics. The concept here excites me greatly and of course it’s much more complex than a basic PVP session.
Let’s explore some of the inner details of Incantris!
Incantris takes place in a world of fantasy. The Kingdom of Aldramere has seen it’s share of battles. This war, however, is one of magic and it may very well rip the very kingdom apart. The most powerful wizards are summoned to the Ruins of Orleal to battle it out with the winner becoming the Champion of Aldramere!
This is not a rush into battle and roll some dice and leave everything up to chance type of game. There is a great deal of strategy involved, with over 25 different spells, a modular game board, 3D terrain, and 12 different miniatures, this game is unique each time you play it.
In Incantris the magic users are referred to as Wizards, even Druids and Sorcerers. It’s just a convenient way to refer to them all at once.
Each player takes on a team of 3 wizards, Shaman, Sorceress, Druid, Shadow Weaver, Arcane Knight, Sorcerer, and can wield magic from the Spirit, Astral, and Elemental realms.
The winner is the player left standing.
The Miniatures & Their Spells:
As you can see, there minis are very detailed, and I’m sure with a steady hand could be painted to personalize them. The minis each have a 1″ circular base and stand between 29-34mm tall.
Each wizard comes with a reference card that shows the spells they can cast, the different magic abilities they possess, their life points, and movement points.
With 25 different spells to sling, this game gives you plenty of fire power to defeat your opponents.
The game board itself is modular and can be changed to a different layout at the start of each game (or in some cases it can actually be changed during game play!).
What All Is In The Box?
I think the graphic above explains that!
This is a KickStarter campaign and there are several Stretch Goals, and the best part? All the stretch goals will be included in your $49.00 pledge!
Incantris is slated to be released in May of 2017
