The start of your Earthborne journey. Contains everything needed to play with 1-4 people.
"Earthborne Rangers is a customizable, co-operative card game set in the wilderness of the far future. You take on the role of a Ranger, a protector of the mountain valley you call home: a vast wilderness transformed by monumental feats of science and technology devised to save the Earth from destruction long ago." - Earthborne Kickstarter
But it's really more than that. We'd describe it as a different genre of expandable card game, one that is more akin to open world role-playing games where exploration and story are the focus. Go where you want. Do what you want. Wander aimlessly. Discover what's out there.
The mechanics and cards provide the depth needed to satisfy more serious "gamers" interested in maximizing the value of their plays, but one can play as inefficiently as desired and still enjoy the richness of the experience. This is a game to sink into fully, with a hot drink or a tall pint in hand, soaking up the visuals as your imagination whisks you into a future that we might all hope to one day realize.
At the same time, Earthborne Rangers is a different "genre" of production. 100% FSC-certified paper. German manufacturing with paper from German forests. No plastic coatings. No shrink wrap. Vegetable based inks. Aside from the staples in the rulebook, everything is recyclable and/or compostable, and will not persist on our planet indefinitely.
It's an exceptional game made by exceptional people. We can't recommend it enough.
An extra set of the player cards found in the Core Set. Suggested for 2-4 player groups.
Four players can play out of the Earthborne Core Set, but that requires that each player resists splashing outside of their role. This is a game that feels best when you're creating unique and interesting characters, so we do suggest the doubler for groups of 2-4 players. It expands options during initial deckbuilding and throughout the game via rewards and trading, but it is not required.
Actual trail map for The Valley. A brilliant companion for your campaign!
We were so surprised by how utterly pleasing this map was to behold. Folded and presented as an actual trail map, one side gives a beautiful rendering of The Valley paths and locations for use in the campaign, while the other has suggested in-game routes and accompanying intel about the world you'll discover. A truly worthy purchase for anyone looking to enjoy their stay.
Wooden energy tokens and various dice to track the unfolding story.
A high quality set of tokens and dice that make it easier to track the action during a session of Earthborne Rangers. One set is enough for one player most of the time. There will be exceptional moments where you'll need an extra die or token. Two sets is perfect for two players. Three sets is enough for four players.
Four pewter miniatures befitting the four Ranger specializations available in the Core Set.
You don't have to replace your punchboard Ranger token with an incredible pewter miniature. You also don't have to have whipped cream on a sundae, or croissants with coffee.
Natural rubber playmat for the player zone of Earthborne Rangers. 1 per player recommended.
A striking playmat designed to keep the player zone in order, it features outlines for everything a player controls during the game—aspect tokens, role card, deck, discard, fatigue, and everything within reach. Each Ranger Playmat serves one player at the table, so we suggest that you scale up based on your group if you're looking to really get into the game. But again, no playmats are required to play...they're just nice.
Natural rubber playmat for the campaign zone of Earthborne Rangers. One per group recommended.
A gorgeous playmat with zones outlined for the campaign cards in Earthborne Rangers—weather, landscapes, missions, and everything else along the way. A single Valley Playmat is sufficient for 1-4 players, but it is not required to play the game.
An art and lore book for a game that is driven by its art and lore. A "must purchase" if you ask us.
A simply captivating presentation of the Earthborne setting, with full color, full page art spreads alongside colorful descriptions of the creatures and features that define The Valley. The Earthborne team suggests reading the corresponding entry in this book when you reach a new area in the game or encounter a new creature so that you can fully immerse yourself in the scene. We can't help but agree.
This book is a testament to the talent and vision behind Earthborne Rangers. Worth picking up even if it's your only purchase.
