Starting your journey...
Both new players and tabletop veterans may find entering a new game intimidating! While Relicblade is carefully engineered to create a deeply satisfying game experience for players at every level, it can still be challenging to know where to start!
The Starter Bundle is the best place to start for any Relicblade player. Choose your favorite faction set and get the Seeker's Handbook, tokens, and measuring gauges at a discount. With this set you will be ready to dive into a refreshing new hobby-game.
Faction sets are specially designed to introduce new factions to the game. Each set includes several characters along with their character cards and their special upgrades. In Relicblade there are two main path alignments, the advocate and the adversary, and however within these good and evil alignments there are various independent factions. Ultimately, the Wretched Hive share nothing but hatred for Bone and Darkness, however their personal quarrels mean nothing when compared to your iron will. As a Seeker, your alignment is what matters. If you are aligned with evil then you can influence any evil character to join your warband. That means that you can mix and match characters within your warband from any faction as long as their main alignment matches yours.
The starter bundle includes the Seeker's Handbook, which is perhaps the most important component to Relicblade. This handbook includes all of the core rules for Relicblade along with the Wonders and Horrors campaign supplement! With The Seeker's Handbook players are able to link their games into an ongoing narrative campaign. Characters gain new skills and treasures as they journey through unexplored wilds. Undertake dangerous missions, uncover rare treasures, explore wild new lands, and battle horrible wild monsters in this in-depth supplement.
These campaign rules open new possibilities and challenge players to delve into the unknown. The Seeker's Handbook changes the context of your games and adds captivating rewards for those bold enough to enter the wild lands.
The Relicblade tokens are high quality die cut game aids. With this set you can mark important game states such as disabled and dodge. It also includes sweet measurement gauges for quick and convenient measurement during games.
If you're completely new to the miniature hobby you'll need a few tools to assemble and paint your model kits. I recommend a pair of sprue cutters, super glue, and a set of simple model paints to get started! I made a little video about how to assemble and paint a miniature, so if you're completely new check it out!

Exploring new realms!
Adding to your collection is easy and rewarding. Simply pick up a new faction set or stand alone character to introduce new play-styles to your games!
There are two main path alignments, in Relicblade. While faction sets include characters from within a specific "faction" theme, any character within the evil Adversary alignment will work with any other evil character. So when you collect undead characters you aren't exclusively limited to using only that "faction". For example, characters from the Bone and Darkness Faction will happily join a party with horrible pig men and Eel Sorcerers conjured from the deep.
Faction expansion sets grow the game in exciting ways. The Lone Guard Faction Set includes new rules for Companion characters, while the Bone and Darkness Faction Set introduces special rules for arcane Constructs. In addition to new rules and characters, each faction set includes a special scenario. You can't go wrong by adding a faction set to your collection!
