Aldarra by Arcane Minis Coming Soon to Kickstarter

Arcane Minis will be launching their upcoming game Aldarra on Kickstarter on February 22nd.

Aldarra is a combat-forward 4X game that features fierce fantasy conflict and awe-inspiring airships set in the popular world of Sordane, where players will fight over the lost nation of Aldarra.

Backers will have several options to choose from; only the mini STL files, Aldarra without minis but with STL files, Aldarra as the full game, or Aldarra as normal plus all the STL files. Arcane Minis has designed Aldarra so that those with 3D printers will be able to print the game’s beautiful airship miniatures, and those who don’t can get the full production copy.

Components

  • 152 huge, high-quality miniatures included in the game
  • 7 unique miniature sculpts types per faction
  • Over 50 high detailed 4 inch map tiles that provide a randomly generated map layout and shape every game
  • Based on the high flying RPG setting of Sordane
  • Mini-less version with options to get the STL files of all the miniatures in the game for home 3D printing

Description

Welcome back to the vibrant world of Sordane – a massive and sprawling setting of diverse nations, cunning crime syndicates, bustling economies, and adventure everywhere! Lost more than 300 years ago to a powerful convergence storm, Aldarra was left uninhabitable. Centuries later, the chaotic magical energies began to finally subside. Now, Aldarra is being claimed by those seeking wealth, land, and power. Suddenly, nations from all over Sordane’s largest continent, Bordair, are sending fleets out. The first to stake their claim will reap the benefits; the power, the advancement, the riches, but who will emerge victorious?

In Aldarra, you play as one of four mighty factions, warring for control of this long lost nation. Each Faction has its strengths, and its history, within the lore of Bordair. 3-4 players will select their faction and take as many paths as they can to emerge the new rulers of Aldarra.

Use your fleets to exterminate your opponents. Complete secondary objectives and build up victory points as you venture forth from your stronghold to explore new territories, expand your control. Manage and extract the resources and Sordalite crystals you need to grow, replenish, and upgrade your forces. Strategically use the unique abilities of your faction to out maneuver your opponents, and gain control of this magical land.

Aldarra will feature over 150 massive and finely detailed minis, randomly generated hex tile maps and variable starting positions that demand dynamic tactics from turn one and ensure no two games are the same.

  • 3-4 players
  • Playtime between 90 – 180 minutes
  • Randomly generated maps and variable starting positions demand dynamic tactics
  • Venture forth from your stronghold to explore new territories, expand your control
