The Elder Scrolls: Betrayal of the Second Era will feature on several lands across Tamriel, the next tabletop adaptation of the popular video game series.
The information was available on the Gamefound crowdfunding preview page, where players may discover several iconic sites from across the history of The Elder Scrolls franchise. High Rock and Black Marsh, among other areas, will be uncovered.
A video game board game expansion based in Valenwood, the homeland of the Bosmer or Wood Elves, is set to be released alongside the locations listed in the core box. It was also confirmed that future expansions located in the West Coast of the Redguards and the High Elf homeland of Summerset Isle are in development.
Betrayal of the Second Era is a two-day board game for one to four people that involves players exploring Tamriel''s continent in search of quests and adventures. Both the combat system and character creation are based on the features found in Too Many Bones, a board game created by the publisher, and Chip Theory Games, with players able to create and develop a single character during three adventures.
The fantasy board game will take place over a trio of quests, with Betrayal of the Second Era featuring 30 main characters. During the game, players will explore the world by moving across a region map, using a separate system of tiles for combat encounters. If the group ever ventures into a town tile theyll encounter a different town encounter.
Players can gain experience bycompleting combat encounters and quests, which they may then use to modify their characters. Depending on which type of character they are controlling, they will be able to activate new abilities, improve their stats, and other aspects.
Josh J. Carlson and Michael Gernes, a designer who previously worked on miniatures games such as Star Wars: Armada, co-created The Elder Scrolls: Betrayal of the Second Era.
Chip Theory Games is responsible for releasing Cloudspire, a board game inspired by Multiplayer Online Battle Arena video games and puzzle board game Triplock. The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is the most recent mainline entry in the game.
The Elder Scrolls: Betrayal of the Second Era''s crowdfunding campaign will be launched in May 2023, with pledges still to be confirmed.
