Cerebria - The Inside World

About this project

1b36c99fc13a0e6f8d7c69c43d00e6b4_origina

Cerebria is a team-based area control game for 2-4 players, set in a person's mind, re-imagined as a vibrant fantasy world.

Players assume the role of Spirits, followers of the Inside World's two opposing forces, Bliss and Gloom, with the goal of shaping Cerebria's Identity to their image. For that purpose, they have been granted power over the Emotions, Cerebria's denizens: they can invoke, move, empower and evolve Emotions to influence and control Cerebria's Realms and Frontiers.

Cerebria's state is in constant flux until a Spirit triggers a Revelation - these are key moments in the game when the current game state is evaluated and is preserved as a permanent Bliss or Gloom fragment on the Identity.

Cerebria is a deep and highly customizable game full of player interaction, where timing and cooperation with your teammate are essential to victory.

Multiple aspects of area control: Cerebria features seven different aspects of area control. The game is objective-driven: while each of these control aspects give benefits, their importance in scoring will change dynamically based on the Aspiration (objective) cards. Each side will have their own secret Aspiration, but there is also a common one, contested by both sides. By gaining resources from the Origin, players will eventually trigger Revelations - this is when the Aspiration cards are evaluated, and a Bliss or Gloom Fragment is added to the Identity based on the result.

Leave your Mark on Cerebria's Identity: Cerebria has an innovative scoring system, manifesting in an impressive physical form in the middle of the board: the Identity. It is built of Fragments scored by Bliss and Gloom during Revelations, and apart from keeping track of the struggle between the two sides, both its size and facing have ongoing effects on the gameplay.

The Emotion cards: Cerebria's gameplay revolves around the Emotions, the Inside World's inhabitants. These quirky little guys all have their unique, thematic special abilities, and an Intensity value that depends on the amount of Essence in them. The more intense they are, the more effectively they can influence Cerebria's Realms and Frontiers - with enough Essence, they can even be evolved to their stronger form! 

There are dozens of different Emotions available, with even more to come - enough to build and customize your own Emotion deck before each game to suit your play style.

Team game with thematic play modes for various player numbers

Cerebria has a strong team play aspect: in a four player game, each side controls two Spirits, working together to spread Bliss or Gloom across the Inside World. However, we are also adding a game mode where a player can play with an empowered version of a Spirit: the Shaper. 

The Shaper has additional abilities and more actions to match up against two Spirits at once, making it an ideal alternative for 3-player games, and for 2-player games with two Shapers. We have even more game modes for various player numbers as stretch goals that we can't wait to reveal!

 

Note: The design, quantity and color of the above components are still subject to change as we finalize the game. Note: The design, quantity and color of the above components are still subject to change as we finalize the game.

      Been working on a commission for the last week, haven't progressed much on the Cthulhu Wars stuff. This is the result of my labor:
       



    • By DungeonWorks
        Game Decor has partnered with a very talented 3D artist under the banner of “DungeonWorks” and has lauched a Kickstarter for a new line of high resolution 3D printer files for modular dungeons and accessories. There are currently 3 lines of models with a total of 7 uniquely themed dungeons containing over 400 models planned for release. The first line consists of locations of classic encounters, such as the gothic stone dungeon, the dank caverns, and the half timbered town, all of which is easily compatible among the majority of fantasy settings. The second line is inspired by iconic computer based dungeon crawling role playing games where legendary settings are yours to design. The third line is driven by a high fantasy setting with tales of epic proportions. Several more themes and expansions for each line are planned to be released afterwards.
       
      We are live now on Kickstarter

      A little info about the 3 lines

      “Classic Encounters” includes all your generic, classic settings. Basic dungeon, taverns, caves, city streets.

      “Vintage Vault” is about recreating those classic video games and even board games. Everything in the game is recreated here in tile form. Relive the adventures of old or create new ones.

      “Lost Realms” are deluxe sets. They're created just like a D&D module. There is an adventure theme already set out for a DM to build upon. So, these sets are heavily themed for instant adventuring.

      One thing unique about my series is that all the dungeons come with a detailed center piece entrance to really set the mood for a might adventure.

      I'd really like some feedback on what players and DMs would like to see. I've been in the RPG hobby since childhood and created a lot of this from a players perspective. I have around 200 free rewards to give out during the KS, but I'd really like to hear from you for more ideas.

      Please note, these are NOT Openlock models. This project has been in the works for more than a year, well before openlock was even released.

      About
      Comet Lord Miniatures is making it's first series of monstrous miniatures for your tabletop games.
      The Eye Sovereign that views beholders as mere slaves to carry out its ill will? A mimic able to disguise itself as a regular sized chest as it waits to burst out and devour an unlucky adventurer whole?
      Comet Lord Miniatures is seeking to fund the production of its first line of miniatures through this Kickstarter campaign.
      This campaign will start with 2 miniatures including 'The Giant Mimic' and 'The Eye Sovereign'. Hopefully we'll expand this into a full series of miniatures through some stretch goals!
      All miniatures require assembly and will be shipped unpainted.

      Each of the miniatures will be made from high quality resin. The core miniatures for this campaign are both 'large sized' creatures and they are compatible with most 28mm scale tabletop map products. Turntable renders of the core miniatures

      BASE SYSTEM ROOTS 
      When I moved from hex map to miniature rules gaming, I struggled to find any decent affordable scenery. 
      Thus I decided to make some myself. These were sold online under the name of Mechanized Designworks. I found many other people liked them. 
      This led to my decision to make an entire range accessible to the public through DFA, in the form of the BASE System. With your support DFA intends to create the largest range of affordable, high quality modular 6mm scale scenery and buildings. With your continued support, the range has scope to expand indefinitely.
      BASE System sections will be made from 3D printed design originals. Each section will be individually hand-finished before casting in resin, creating a high-quality finish suitable for your choice of model paint. 
      BASE SYSTEM CORE  
       BASE Systems are modular.  
      Example BASE System layout with stand-alone buildings There are many buildings, from stand-alone structures and themed sets, to totally modular sets that allow players to build a base as big or small as they wish. A host of new building designs and base layouts can be created by simply repositioning individual sections; while the same parts can be endlessly reconfigured to provide new vistas for each game.  
       
       
      If you're looking to build a small outpost or firebase or a big planetary command centre for your games, BASE has you covered. Best of all: because BASE System is modular, you can take it apart and redesign it when setting up your next game.  
      Infinite possibilities and configurations await with BASE.
      Example of a large BASE system layout using modular parts BASE SYSTEM VISUAL  
      BASE offers a uniform look and feel across sets in the range. 
      While each module in a set is interchangeable, it will still conform to the overall chosen appearance of your tabletop. In addition, you can make sets look entirely different, yet cohesive, with a few additional components in different paint livery.
      EVOLVING YOUR BASE SYSTEM  
      Start small and go large … or start big.  
      Example of a small BASE System layout The choice is yours. The BASE System is available in box sets and individual components. You can evolve your BASE System at your own speed by adding components or sets as and when it suits you. (To help get you started with this, you will also receive two of some buildings at specific pledge levels.)
      Fire Control and HQ buildings  
      The Repair Bay contains 2 rigs, allowing you to switch between closed and open during your games.  
      The Geodesic Dome will feature a clear resin casting,allowing you to create features inside the structure.  
      The Class A Interstellar Communications set is just the first modular BASE system we hope to produce.
