Default Lands Of Ruin Is Now Live On Kickstarter LAST 24HRS

UPDATED: Lands of Ruin is now live and funded on Kickstarter(see my post further down the thread for more details.)

Kickstarter link:

http://tinyurl.com/zy9x7oq


This looks interesting a tabletop game using a tablet/mobile!, it will be launching on Kickstarter on the 19th February

"Lands of Ruin is a post-apocalypse, tabletop wargame. However, it is not just another run-of-the-mill clone of every other game on the market. This next generation tabletop game utilises the recent advances in mobile technology to bring a more realistic, faster paced, and deeper gaming experience to the already mature tabletop wargaming genre."*

"With the Kickstarter campaign we will produce a line of high quality resin cast 28mm scale miniatures. These 3D sculpts were created by an amazing Romanian sculpter Silvaticus."*

"The range of miniatures consists of 6 hero characters. Each hero is accompanied by 3 cohorts. Players will build their own tribes with any combination of heroes by unlocking them to their account. To play the game players will choose (usually) 2 or more heroes from their tribe for a battle and fill in the rest of the team from the cohorts of the selected heroes."*

There is also an ambassador program for Lands of Ruin

"The Land of Ruin Ambassador Program is a way for us to support, reward and recognise the work our community does helping new players to get started with Lands of Ruin.We are still working to form the exact details of the program, but the goal is to find ways to reward the most active Ambassadors, as well as allow us to directly support the community and any individuals wanting to introduce their local community to Lands of Ruin."*

"To join the Ambassador program, start by filling out in the Lands of Ambassador Program Registration form or email Juhani directly at [email protected]. We will get back to you ASAP!"*

Latest blog update going into detail on the Reclaimers character Achilles

"Swift-footed Achilles, as he was referred to in the Homeric Epics, proved to be an apt name for the Reclaimer’s best reconnaissance scout and sniper. He is fast and silent in his maneuvers, and deadly accurate with his rifle"

"Achilles is at his best in long distant support role. His sniper rifle, once deployed, is devastating weapon picking out opponent's high value targets."

"The cohort of Achilles plays a support role in his operations. High quality sniper rifles are hard to come by so most of the Achilles' support squad is usually equipped with weapons more suitable to close support role."

Latest Blog post reguarding map use

"Game map is what connects the physical world with the digital one. While the game works well on any table a battle mat might be the easiest way to get started."

Latest Blog post reguarding battle reports

"The Lands of Ruin Command Console app tracks nearly everything on the battlefield. All the statistics and events are available to the players in the form of battle reports and character statistics."

"An image tells more than thousand words. That's why we will be enabling players to snap pictures during the battle and easily include them in their battle reports."

Lands Of Ruin is now live on Kickstarter

It will be running for the next 18 days

I have been following this one closely as I am liking the idea of the tablet taking care of the mundane tasks during gameplay, I have downloaded the "beta" version of the command app and it seems fairly easy to use and navigate around it. I have not yet tried a full 2 player game yet, but will hopefully sometime this week.

The renders of the miniatures look outstanding especially the Baleans, I could imagine they would be good for a number of games systems outside of Lands Of Ruin, as would the Reclaimers

Just like you could use the Lands Of Ruin miniatures with other systems, you can use any mini you own already and make your own heroes and cohorts

There are a variety of pledges on offer, ranging from just £17EB/£19 Digital Pack – £80EB/£95 XL Miniatures Pack – £450 Lifetime Benefactor, with a few pledges inbetween.

"Lands of Ruin is a post-apocalypse tabletop wargame. However, it is not just another run-of-the-mill clone of every other game on the market. This next generation tabletop game utilises the recent advances in mobile technology to bring a more realistic, faster paced, and deeper gaming experience to the already mature tabletop wargaming genre."*


"The battlefield is not empty. Players' tribes confront remnants of the final war in the form of automated drones, decaying battle mechs still executing their wartime orders, and hordes of infected dead, all controlled by the companion app's A.I."*

"Previously in wargaming, hidden characters and secret actions were not so hidden or secret. Minis had to be placed on the tabletop, and secret actions declared in order to keep things fair. LoR allows players to have hidden characters in play without their opponents knowing they are there, as well as perform actions that the opponent doesn't know about. Imagine a hidden sniper waiting to ambush the opponent. This is all tracked and kept fair through the Command Console tablet app."*

"Characters gain experience and skills as well as obtain new equipment during battles."*

"In Lands of Ruin, the wastelands are populated by tribes. These unique and diverse cultures represent the different factions or alignments players join when they play the game. Each tribe has its own beliefs and goals, as well as fighting style and technologies."*

"Lands of Ruin is fully playable with just two heroes and their cohorts. However, adding more heroes to your tribe adds variety to the gameplay."*
