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.

      The Homestarrunner folks have a kickstarter up for Trogdor!! the Board Game.

      There is an option to get the game with some cute meeples, or a set of miniatures.

      Anyone think they can make those minis look really good?  It is certainly a challenge.
    • By Orlando_the_Technicoloured
      So you have seen the minis but what about the rules doc? Well, here is just one example of the art quality thanks to the incredible talents of April Prime! Amazingly, this is still work in progress, but she is working on art for every dog and a few bonus pieces as well....hmmm..maybe art prints should be available...


      Here's a small piece of Dungeons and Doggies fiction to enjoy! Every mini will have an associated 'icon character' pre generated in the rules pack,and for the Cleric role we have Cerysse, gentle but determined protector of her friends. Many thanks to Kate, our writer, for providing this and many other story pieces for the project! We will follow up with a rules preview for the Companion Domain soon!

      Hi all, 
       
      I feel a bit bad that this is my first post here on Reaper Forum advertising a kickstarter. I used to go by the Moniker Kaybee or Kaybee81 (can't remember) but as I'm known as beefcake on other fora I thought it best to go by the same name everywhere. Anyway here is a link to some STL files for purchase.


      The Wizard's Tower contains stackable tower sections to create your own unique Wizard's Tower. 
      Files have been scaled for 28mm miniatures but, as with all 3d printable files, you have the ability to scale them up or down to suit your gaming needs.
      The initial reward consists of 7 different modular tower pieces and a ladder. All of which have been created on Blender, run through a repair tool, to check for any non-manifold parts and other errors, and printed.

      [li]Tower roof[/li]
      [li]Single window tower section[/li]
      [li]Tower section with door[/li]
      [li]Tower bridge (2 bridge sections link together)[/li]
      [li]Double window tower section[/li]
      [li]Windowless tower section[/li]
      [li]Tower base[/li]
      [li]and a ladder[/li]

      [/li]
      [/list] All for NZD $10 (roughly USD $6.80)
       
      The tower pieces can be oriented in almost any direction to provide a different look each time you game.
