“You are not breach mages yet,” Brama lectures as she paces down the line of students, her frail form belying her immense power. “Breach mages have protected us since the beginning — since the burning of the world and our pilgrimage into the dark. It was they who founded Gravehold, our last bastion, and if you wish to stand beside these living legends, you must listen and learn. The Nameless shall come again, as they always have, and you will need to be ready. You are the hope of our future.”
As a young apprentice, you grew up to stories of the breach mages. Brama, the teacher, wisest of the mages. Dezmodia, the prodigy, master of great magic. Mist, the stoic leader and tactical genius. Malastar, the magical craftsman. Rebellious, powerful, and reckless perfectly sum up Xaxos. These mages are your heroes and tomorrow, after your ordeal, you will join their ranks.
“Each of you must overcome your ordeal to learn discipline and focus, the tools you will need to defend Gravehold." Brama continues. "We are nothing without Gravehold. To be a breach mage is to sacrifice your life for Gravehold. When you die, it will be in defense of our city. Once you understand this universal truth...only then will you be ready to become a breach mage.”
In 2016, Action Phase Games released the critically acclaimed, cooperative deck-building game, Aeon’s End. Last year Indie Boards and Cards & Action Phase Games released the exciting standalone/expansion Aeon’s End: War Eternal. This year we are excited to grow the universe with Aeon's End Legacy, a standalone game that also expands all previous Aeon's End content.
Aeon's End: Legacy is a full "campaign", where you'll build your character over multiple "chapters," fighting increasingly powerful nemeses to defend Gravehold, the last bastion of humanity. At the end of each game, you will choose new upgrades for your character and more powerful player cards to add to the market. At the end of the campaign, you'll have unique characters, new nemeses, new player cards, and new basic nemesis cards that you can play with indefinitely and/or play with all the other Aeon's End content released. If you would like to play the campaign again, we also offer a Reset Pack as an add-on.
Aeon’s End: Legacy is a cooperative deckbuilding game for 1-4 players that plays in 60 minutes per chapter (game). Players will struggle to defend Gravehold from The Nameless and their hordes using unique abilities, powerful spells, and the help of familiar characters.
Aeon's End: Legacy uses the same critically acclaimed deck-building system made in Aeon's End. This core features a number of innovative mechanisms, including a variable turn order system that simulates the chaos of an attack and deck management rules that require careful planning.
If you aren’t familiar with Aeon’s End, you can check out the BGG page or watch The Dice Tower review, which gave Aeon's End their Seal of Excellence (and note that we've significantly updated all the graphics & components - so everything you can get from this project is re-formatted with the 2nd Edition look and feel).
For more information on Aeon's End: Legacy, we encourage you to view the video below, or read our draft rulebook here.
Promo - An item that Kickstarter backers will get in their rewards, and will not be included in the retail edition of Aeon's End: Legacy. These items may be released at a future date as promotional materials and/or game expansions.
Kickstarter Exclusive - An exclusive item for Kickstarter backers with remaining stock available through conventions and special promotions only.
The Reset Pack provides all of the cards, mats, sticker sheets, and tokens that players will need to reset the game so that they can play through the campaign again. Unlike some other legacy games with reset packs, a copy of Aeon’s End: Legacy can be reset any number of times. One Reset Pack will be needed each time the game is reset. Add $25 for each copy of the the Reset Pack you would like to receive.
Add $20 for the Accessory Pack to further enhance gameplay experience.
The Accessory Pack includes:
These accessories make the game easier to store, set-up, and play, on top of making the game even more visually appealing.
We have designed a new playmat for this Kickstarter. While it isn’t necessary, the playmat, produced by Gamermats, is a high quality neoprene mat that helps organize the game and adds table presence. Add $25 to your pledge for each playmat you want.
We know that some backers want more than one copy of a reward level. To do this, you will need to do the following:
1) Pledge at the highest level from which you want the rewards.
2) Add to your pledge amount based on the add-on chart (ie, you don’t have to add shipping cost for each item, just the first item. Kickstarter does automatically).
The Update Pack is only for those that have a 1st edition copy of Aeon’s End, The Depths, and/or The Nameless and would like to get cards with the new graphic design from 2017. This pack contains all of the cards and playmats from those games with the updated graphic design from the second edition.
Add $10 for the Update Pack.
There are limited quantities available of the Update Pack.
Proof of purchase (a photo of your games) will be required for this add-on.
It is important that everyone knows that we are not using a pledge manager. That means you’ll have to add to your pledge amount for all the add-ons that you want, before the project is completed at 10pm pacific, March 15th. To change you pledge amount, click the “Manage your Pledge” button on the top of this page.
Then, click “Change your Pledge”, enter the new pledge amount and click “Continue”. The tricky part is that you’ll need to calculate the total pledge amount on your own and won’t get an immediate confirmation of what you have added. This has to be done before the project ends (10pm pacific, Thursday, March 15th). We will get all the details we need from you when we send the project surveys out, that will be done the week of March 19th (we need to get the information quickly in order to send the right number of games and add-ons to their fulfillment centers).
Kickstarter is the world's largest funding platform for creative projects. Every month, tens of thousands of people pledge millions of dollars to creative projects in dozens of categories.
A person who supports a project is called a "backer." The process of giving money to this project is called a "pledge."
In return for your pledge, we (the creators of the campaign) are able to offer "rewards," depending on the amount you pledge. For example, if you pledge $65 to help back the project, we'll offer you a copy of the game along with any stretch goals we achieve as soon as it is manufactured.
You can become a backer in just three easy steps:
Once you've backed this project, we encourage you to share this page on social media platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter, and share with your friends and family. Also, be sure to like Indie Boards and Cards on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for real-time updates about this project and more!
Our plan is to have a limited number of Aeon’s End: Legacy available at Essen with all the stretch goals from this project. We will not be taking reservations as in years past, everything will be first come, first served at Essen. If you would like to get the rewards from this project, we suggest you back through kickstarter!
While our current production schedule looks like Kickstarter rewards will ship out well before Essen, it may be the case that we have games at Essen before the Kickstarter backer copies are sent. It may also be the case that we are unable to get games to Essen in time. I wish we were able to absolutely guarantee results, but we simply know that we can't make such commitments when so many other parties are involved in the process.
If you still want to try Essen pickup – DO NOT PLEDGE FOR THIS PROJECT.
One copy of Aeon’s End: Legacy with all of the stretch goals.
One copy of Aeon’s End: Legacy with all stretch goals and Aeon’s End: War Eternal, The Void, and The Outer Dark expansions.

One copy of Aeon’s End: Legacy with all stretch goals and Aeon's End, The Depths, The Nameless, Aeon's End: War Eternal, The Void and The Outer Dark. This is all of the Aeon’s End retail products.
