Noresmian Nights - From Bruegelburg to the ends of the earth

Recommended Posts

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/822163699/noresmian-nights-from-bruegelburg-to-the-ends-of-t?ref=discovery

 

I've backed three of their Kickstarters before and have always been very satisfied. Characterful minis and fast delivery.

 

His Excellency, the Grand Vizier (NOR-01) 

e5838809c86c22c8a63d39ace36fc204_origina

The most trusted confidant of His Highness, the Grand Vizier is the chief courtier and administrator of the highest affairs of state.

 His Highness, the Khan-Sultan of Noresmi (NOR-02)

eb729eb715635dbf1403e0b78f5207e4_origina

Ruler of the City and the surrounding lands of many leagues, the current Khan-Sultan hails from a long line of rulers, some weak, some strong, some cunning, some naïve. Having traveled with the Grand Caravans in his youth, he is determined to maintain and expand Noresmi’s standing, yet keeps court in the lavish style expected in this part of the world. 

 The Khan-Sultan’s Wife and the Royal Chancellor (NOR-03)

d86b8e8ed1d9285277d0aad3fc6b2c3a_origina

From a marriage of reason to cement an alliance with a neighbouring state grew respect and love – these days, the Khan-Sultan’s wife takes great interest in her husband’s duties and advises him as the need arises. Rumour has it that the rode out as a Warrior-Princess, but who would dare to ask her about it?

Supervising the Khan-Sultan’s treasuries, the Royal Chancellor is traditionally appointed from the most successful and proven members of the trader aristocracy. 

 Wise Men of the East (NOR-04)

429791a3ad2fdfb44b6190e3b8c518e0_origina

Knowledge is not a commodity as easily traded as more tangible goods, but still in high demand. The Khan-Sultan, following the example of his great-grandfather, expanded his court by maintaining an academy of sages to collect the wisdom of the world.

 Merchants of Noresmi (NOR-05)

dea76c4606d425ad4dfc0a1598df0d6f_origina

When it comes to preparing a Grand Caravan, the Khan-Sultan summons the foremost merchants of the city, as well as the most-renowned travellers to plan out this great venture. But with trade being such an important part of Noresmian daily life, one will very likely meet those notables on the markets, at their trade houses, remarkably comparable to the Kontors of Bruegelburg.

 Advisors to the Court (NOR-06)

66a6b01e2f50c59e11dc52a28f25fa2f_origina

As merchants grow in age and esteem, it is customary to hand over the daily running of business to their successors. The most esteemed among them may find themselves appointed Advisor to the Court, as the Khan-Sultans seek to put their knowledge and experience to good use (and keep an eye on those of great ambition).

 Courtier of the Hillfolk and Servant (NOR-07)

0c5aead8aeb6f83b3ba6eee7cb849279_origina

In ages past, when the Dwarfs were more adventurous, some clans set out to claim new lands in the East. They maintained some of their ancestral reclusiveness, but some dwell in the city of Noresmi itself, working as blacksmiths and goldsmiths, where their prodigal skill find great acclaim and may even lead to a place on the Khan-Sultan’s council. 

 The Cuisinier Royal (NOR-08)

78c655e938da50fe80c4aedf436f1f66_origina

Noresmian cuisine is known for its exotic combination of foods, spices and specialties from all over the world. Only the most skilled and trusted cooks find themselves appointed to the court kitchens, and closely watched due to their sensitive position. 

 Male Servants (NOR-09)

9259b3b883ca2c9547be6a8c423779c6_origina

The Khan-Sultan’s palace guard maintains a continuous presence on the streets of the city. Still, there are some areas where only the shrewdest and toughest servants are sent to conduct their masters’ business. 

 The Tax Collectors (NOR-10)

2346b2374429d97ae09b37e4a4ba10a9_origina

In order to pay for his court, but also to maintain roads, bridges and other public institutions, the Khan-Sultan levies various taxes and duties. Guarded by trusted palace guards, Tax Collectors are a common sight during market days and at the time of every third moon.

 Streetfolk (NOR-11)

b35ca22c0532283d58dd3ba7bfc73c72_origina

Despite the strange smells, uncommon sights and sounds, life in the city is broadly similar to that in Bruegelburg. On market days, one will meet people from all walks of life.

 Palace Guards (NOR-12)

4ee4d82d17abd4b129ba71f9526e6e03_origina

Palace Guards are hand-picked from veterans of the standing army. It is a posting of high repute, and many a guardsman retired to become chief bodyguard to powerful merchants favoured by the Khan-Sultan. 

 Master of the Armies with Herald (NOR-13)

b940ba04d21ddc1ea825f098822a030b_origina

One of the most trusted positions on the Khan-Sultan’s court, the Master of the Armies is the chief commander of the palace guard and the small standing army maintained to keep peace along the trade routes.

Funded and first stretch goal announced:

 

image.png.69a128f105ccc0439f3bfae9d2f298cd.png

 

Herald at 4.500 Euro: There is a Herald included in Set NOR-13, but we have a second pose of Herald coming as a free adition to your pledges. The two Heralds nicely complemented, each of them turning to a different direction. If we reach this goal, every pledge of at least Chancellor level or 50 Euro will be added the Herald for free.

I love the designs, and I missed the last one (my fault, I forgot to pledge when I had plenty of opportunities).

 

What I'm secretly hoping, is that they open up their back catalog for even more minis!

So I went full-in, and pledged enough to get both or the original "Day at the Fair" and "Dwarven Gold" sets as add-ons.

 

That's a lot of minis with character.

      Not sure if anyone cares, but thought i'd post it in case
       
      well articulated (19 points on average), scientifically accurate action figures of 1/18th Ceratopsians. Not all have been unlocked yet though, and probably won't be before it's done
       
      He has 1 successful kickstarter that he's fully delivered on in a timely manner and came out pretty well

      Phillip Reed is getting back to his publishing roots - and doing A Kickstarter PDFs for lists of neat stuff, starting with A Dozen Sinister Rumors.
       
      The sweet spot is... $1.
       
      At this point, that gets you eight PDFs.
       

       
      There are no physical rewards, only PDFs. And turn around should be swift.
       
      Phil Reed used to run Ronin Arts, which specialized in these little PDFs, back when the OGL was new and shiny.
       
      I am glad to see him getting back into it.
       
      *EDIT* Only Five Days Left.

      Boiling Poison Dice set is far more than “just another dice set”. Each Boiling Poison Dice set pack contains a complete set of three D6 gaming dices.
      They can be used to play a large number of tabletop games and dice games.

      I'm honestly surprised there hasn't been a thread about this one yet but I've been holding off 'til nearer the launch date to share my enthusiasm. Oathsworn: Into the Deepwood is a fantasy boardgame with a distinct Kingdom Death feel (but without the Kingdom Death anime feel). In this game humans live in isolated settlements surrounded by the deep dark forests. Big nasty monsters are a threat to humanity and heroes go out to fight the monsters.
       
      The miniatures are a little on the large scale with the humans being around 35-40mm and the monsters being much larger. For combat players can use a deck of cards or roll dice. The dice are more random whilst the cards have a statistically even spread making them more predictable if that's what you prefer. Inbetween battling terrifying monsters the heroes get to do stuff in their settlements and go monster hunting (which will feature a choice based fighting fantasy/lone wolf/choose your own adventure gameplay element). There is an ally element to permit a vanquished player to continue to take part in a showdown with a temporary character. Some of the six playable characters are not human. There's a barbarian, priest, knight, witch, a plant based forest archer creature and a great armoured warrior bear!
       
      Oh and if, unlike me, you have a mobile phone, the game will have a fully voiced narration app featuring the recognisable voice of James Cosmo (Lord Commander Mormont of the Night's Watch from Game of Thrones).
       
      The project launches on 8th October.
       
      Campaign preview page is up
