Rules Release 1:
Characters & Stats

Every NFT in Kings of Kriptheim makes up a unique Tile. Each tile consists of characters, terrain, and various other attributes. These attributes carry specific "Stats"

 

Movement - M

The number of tiles your Warband can move on a turn.

Movement is a flat rate, and modified by the overall energy of the tile

Finesse - Fi

How skilled a warrior is with their weapons in close combat.

An attacker's Finesse is compared with the Finesse of the enemy unit to reach a minimum dice roll to hit.

Aim - Ai

How skilled a character is to land a projectile attack on an enemy.

A character's Aim directly correlates how easily a character can hit a target, after benefit modifiers +/- are applied due to Cover, movement & more.

Attacks - A

The # of strikes a character can make in a combat round.

One of the most important metrics to stack when fighting strong foes. This stat is modified by weapon type & certain character's modifiers.

Health Points - Hp

How many successful wounds a character can sustain until removal from the battlefield.

Health Points will be an essential Stat to stack when building multiple Warbands against seasoned enemies.

Savagery - S

How damaging a characters attacks are when they land successfully on an enemy.

Savagery of the attacker is directly compared to the Fortitude of the enemy unit to determine a dice roll required to wound in combat.

Fortitude - Fo

Impacts a characters ability to resist wounds and/or effects in battle.

Fortitude lets characters shake off damaging attacks from range, in combat, and due to other effects.

Energy - E

A measure of how quickly a character can take action/reaction, prior to & during combat.

One of the most under-utilized stats in most combats; a wise player will ensure they have characters with the ability to react quickly and get every opportunity to strike first.

Jotunn - Giants of Myth

pending base stat release

Jotunn have long held the most terrifying mythology in VeLand, always with a taste for Viking flesh. One had not been seen until 3 winters back, when they began appearing in larger numbers then ever imagined. They bring the health of a tank & savagery of a berserker to the battlefield for their allies.

Jarl - Ruling Elite

pending base stat release

The Vikings of Veland respect strength above all else. They mostly tend to aristocracy & oligarchy, but the Jarls & Vekings of Velands townships have begun to set government charters in place. It won't be long until their politicking will either unite or forever sever the 4 tribes.
