Starting your journey...
Getting into a new game can be intimidating for both new and veteran gamers. 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!
Step 1. Pick up a copy of the rules. The Seeker's Handbook includes all of the core rules for Relicblade along with the campaign rules 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.
Step 2. Choose a Faction Set. Faction sets feature a party of adventurers in theme with one another. Each set includes several characters along with their character cards and special upgrades. In Relicblade there are two main path alignments, the advocate (good) and the adversary (evil). Any good characters will work other good characters, so choosing a faction will only limit your force building options by alignment. If you don’t want to limit yourself at all, you can choose the neutral alignment Moldorf Expedition. With this initial party you will be prepared for your first campaign.
By adding a second faction to your initial purchase you will be ready to get two players started right away!
Step 3. Grab some extras. Adventuring essentials like the Adventure Gear and Relics of the Volge card packs are a great addition. Adventure gear includes 10 universal upgrade cards, like health potions and magic weapons. The relic card pack includes wondrous magic items players will claim during their campaigns. With this set you will be equipped to uncover powerful secrets hidden in the depths of the wilderness.
There are great game aids available, too. the Relicblade token set includes measuring tools and great tokens to help track important status effects and game states. Scenario pieces
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!
