When our 3D Bases Kickstarter was ready to launch, Massimo Torriani got in contact with us, amazed by the quality of the product, to get a copy of the Ruined Abbey to be used for some terrain pictures new game “Arkeo Obskura”.
Of course, we readily agreed.
We were however very much amazed to see that in the meantime he decided to use our Ruined Abbey as the main cover image of his rulebook!
It doesn’t stop here. Massimo Torriani’s work will be distributed by North Star Military figures… yes, the same ones who distribute Frostgrave!🙂
Here are some images and a short sum up of the Arkeo Obscura game manual.
Arkeo Obskura, a Narrative Horror Skirmish
Imagine a world where all of your deepest fears have come to life, a place where monsters, terrifying creatures and deviant criminals threaten your very existence and that of the entire planet.
You and your friends are the only ones that can stop these terrible plans…
Will you succeed or will you die trying?
ARKEO OBSCURA is the first release in the Survival Heroes series and presents a skirmish-level Horror setting that covers forgotten cults, urban legends, ancient mythological creatures and fantastic archetypes that are the backdrop for the adventures that our Heroes will face to save themselves and to save humanity!
With Arkeo Obskura you can play a cooperative game (the players against the system or a Master), a solitaire game (one player against the game itself) and even a competitive game (where two players fight the system but also fight each other!). The settings provided can be played with Victorian, 1920s, 1940s or Modern characters depending on your personal taste. Weapons and accessories will depend on the setting.
Each scenario contains clues, events and discoveries that enrich the story. The game system is easy to lean and intuitive and you don’t need a Master. You can play solitaire or with friends in cooperative or competitive mode. You will see your characters grow, buying new characteristics and equipment from one game to the next.
