Sword & Sorcery: Ancient Chronicles is a fully cooperative fantasy board game where one to five players control legendary Heroes with unique powers. Recalled from the dead and made immortal by the will of the Three Gods, the Heroes embark on a quest to destroy false and corrupted deities worshipped across the land.

Sword & Sorcery: Ancient Chronicles is designed by Gremlin Project (Galaxy Defenders, Sword & Sorcery: Immortal Souls) and manufactured and distributed by Ares Games (Wings of Glory, Sails of Glory, War of the Ring, Battlestar Galactica Starship Battles).

After the world-wide success of our first season, Sword & Sorcery: Immortal Souls - acclaimed by many as the best cooperative dungeon-crawler on the market - we are joining forces again to bring the game system to the next level, with new features enhancing the storytelling and broadening the scope of your adventures, a greater variety of enemies, and more possibilities for your Heroes.

Ancient Chronicles is the second season of the saga. Its storyline is a prequel to the adventures re-enacted in Immortal Souls. It is a stand-alone product - you do not need Immortal Souls to play. However, it remains completely compatible, so all available heroes and enemies of the first season can be integrated into Ancient Chronicles - and viceversa - to further enhance gameplay.

In Ancient Chronicles, you will once again find the rich gameplay, unique A.I system, and excellent quality components already appreciated by thousands of gamers in Immortal Souls, to enjoy many, many hours of high adventure and heroic quests.

Sword & Sorcery: Ancient Chronicles is offered to all our Game Steward customers in a Kickstarter exclusive edition, including all contents of the retail version, enhanced by unique content and all unlocked Stretch Goals. ALL THE ITEMS IN THIS SECTION ("Ancient Chronicles", "Kickstarter Set I", "Kickstarter Set II", "Challenge Set") ARE INCLUDED IN THE "LEGENDARY HERO" REWARDS!

Game Steward customers will be able to play this new cycle of the entire Sword & Sorcery saga months before it is available at retail, and with a much reduced cost compared to purchasing all individual releases when they will become available.

Contents marked with the green KS "Wax Sigil" are Kickstarter Exclusive, and they will never be released at retail.

'Sword & Sorcery is an epic-fantasy cooperative board game in which 1-5 players fight together against the forces of evil, which are controlled by the game system itself.

Each player controls one or more heroes – legendary characters brought back to life by powerful sorcery. Weakened by the resurrection, they grow stronger during their story-driven quests. By acquiring soul points during battles, the heroes' souls regenerate, restoring their legendary status with multiple powers, magic and soul weapons, and powerful artifacts.

'Ancient Chronicles, a new starting point for the game, is fully compatible with the original Immortal Souls campaign in terms of gameplay, allowing players to cross over heroes and monsters from one campaign to another. Gameplay remains familiar, but this new cycle also introduces new elements to the setting, expanding both the narrative engine and the mechanisms, without making the game more complex.

The Ancient Chronicles campaign is set in the distant past of the events narrated in the Immortal Souls campaign.
