Paradise Lost is a new fantasy board game that's up on Kickstarter now. Take on the role of classic fairy tale characters such as Alice, Aladdin, Hercules, and more as you face off against your nemeses, or those of other famous characters. There's elements of social deduction as well, as the Water Witch has summoned her own champion, who must be found out.
From the campaign:
In the halls of a distant Ice Palace, shrouded in legend and myth, roams a long forgotten sorceress, Nimue, whose talents in dark magic are matched only by the malice in her heart. For centuries she has been plotting and scheming, lying in wait until the time when she could bring the world to its knees under darkness and ruin. That time has come and the Water Witch will reign!
In Paradise Lost, you will play a legendary Hero. Take on the role of Alice, Aladdin, Beowulf, Billy Goat Gruff, Hercules, Merlin, Perseus, or Red Riding Hood. The Water Witch has ripped you from the pages of your own story, bringing you and the others to life in order to fight an evil Villain of her choosing and possibly your personal nemesis; the Jabberwocky, the Warlock, Grendel, Troll, the 9-headed Hydra, Sir Mordred, Medusa, or the Big Bad Wolf.
You and your fellow Heroes must travel the realms of the Water Witch; deduce whom she has summoned as her champion Villain and the weapon needed to defeat them, all the while preparing for the fight to come. Along the way you will speak to Oracles, learn secrets from the Truthseekers, recite ancient scrolls, seek the Villain’s hideout, and much, much more. Tread carefully, the journey will be perilous and it is possible to enrage the Water Witch even further!
The campaign is up and over its funding goal with 14 days left to go.
