Impale your enemies with Kailinn, the Fury of the Forest

Unleash nature's wrath with the fastest Godtear champion!

Battle rival champions. Claim godtears. Become a god.

Take control of mighty champions and fight to claim the powerful tears of perished gods! This miniature skirmish game puts two players head-to-head on a hex-based board. Score points by planting your banner on a godtear, defending it, and by taking out enemy champions and followers.

Even gods can die

We begin at the end of days, when war rages across The Cradle. Consumed by violence, mortals have abandoned their faith in favour of bloodshed. And as the last mortal casts their faith aside, turning instead to darkness, the weakened gods first weep, and then shatter.

But the strongest can seize their power

When the gods shatter, tears rain from the sky as crystalline meteors filled with godly essence. These godtears bestow god-like power on those strong enough to seek them.

Just a handful of mortals can withstand and harness the divine power of the godtears. Those chosen few fast develop a taste for the tears, becoming great champions in their perpetual quest to gain more and ascend to godhood...

Slayers

Slayers

Slayers take the fight to the enemy. These heavy hitters are great at taking out enemy champions, and gain extra steps on the battle ladder for doing it.

Guardian

Guardian

The clue is in the name: Guardians are excellent defenders. These champions protect their banner (and their allies) with their lives. They get extra steps on the battle ladder if their banner is still in play at the end of the turn.

Maelstroms

Maelstroms

Where Slayers are best at going head-to-head with enemy champions, Maelstroms are great at taking out followers. They get an extra step on the battle ladder for every follower they knock out.

Shapers

Shapers

Keen to control the flow of the game, green Shaper champions buff allies, debuff enemies, and manipulate the battlefield through cunning movement of godtears. They get extra steps on the battle ladder for planting their banner.

Choose your champions

The champions are fickle, forming and breaking alliances as it suits them. So, you can build your warband with any champions you like! A typical battle takes place between two warbands of equal size. Once you've mastered 1v1, 3v3 makes for an epic clash!

Kailinn Kailinn

The Fury of the Forest

Kailinn

Unleash nature's wrath

Maelstrom Kailinn, mighty centaur and protector of the forest, tramples her foes underhoof with unbridled ferocity. Few can withstand a charge from Kailinn and her faithful Virtues, the druidic centaurs accompanying her in her quest for godhood. Those who try will find themselves on the end of her wicked-sharp horn.

Luella Luella

The Raging Storm

Luella

Ride the lightning

Like a mighty storm, Maelstrom champion Luella engulfs her enemies in a whirlwind of flashing steel and thunderous fury. Take cover, for she and her Shieldmaidens charge into battle without a backward glance.

Jeen Jeen

The Wandering Warrior

Jeen

Master of her own destiny

A mercenary with a soft spot for the downtrodden, yellow Maelstrom Jeen wanders in search of wrongs to right and worthy adversaries to challenge. She leads the Golden Shrikes, a swarm of disciplined soldiers who dutifully cut down enemies in a flash of cold steel.

Blackjaw Blackjaw

The Sweeping Flame

Blackjaw

Unleash the firestorm

A yellow Maelstrom champion, Blackjaw is an incendiary force that threatens to destroy all before him in a bright inferno. In his wake come his followers, the Unburnt Reavers—vicious orcs that race across the ground like wildfire, unaffected by Blackjaw's blistering heat.

Grimgut Grimgut

The Vile

Grimgut

Spread the disease

A yellow Maelstrom champion, Grimgut is an unsettling sight for even the bravest heroes. He's a lumbering mass of spoilt flesh with an insatiable hunger, consuming enemies and godtears alike. His gluttony and foul deeds do little to inspire others to follow his cause. Instead, Grimgut creates his own followers, vomiting slimy Retchlings from the remnants of enemies he ingests.

Titus Titus

The Disgraced

Titus

Lead the charge

Despite being banished from his homeland, Titus the yellow Maelstrom holds his head high. A paragon of martial prowess, he leads the charge by example, inspiring his devoted Glory Seekers to prove their own valour.

Styx Styx

Lord of Hounds

Styx

Master death itself

A powerful necromancer with a dark reputation, the mere sight of Styx incites fear. This nightmarish spectre is accompanied by a pair of slavering Abyssal Hounds – huge creatures with an insatiable thirst for blood.

Nia Nia

The Crystalmancer

Nia

Nia is cool and composed, unlike the bloodthirsty champions that are her peers, more interested in understanding the elements than pursuing godhood. This green Shaper champion seeks to bring life to the world, rather than destroy it—as evidenced by her strange Quartzling companions, creatures crafted by her own hand.

Rattlebone Rattlebone

Prophet of the Ascended Past

Rattlebone

Warn of omens

Haunted by dire omens and visions of the past, Rattlebone is both a feared shaman and a portent of great tragedy. Even the mightiest challengers become puppets in her presence, their spirits broken by the potent hexes this green Shaper champion weaves.

Raith'Marid Raith'Marid

The Rising Tsunami

Raith'Marid

Ride the wave

A powerful disciple of the element that birthed his sire, Raith’Marid is a tidal wave cascading across the battlefield, crashing against his foes and washing them away. This green Shaper champion is accompanied by a tide of Splashlings, the conjured spirits that serve as focal points for their master’s immense power. 

Shayle Shayle

Keeper of the Oath

Shayle

Guard the realm

Bound to the elementals from birth, Shayle is a warden of the mortal realm and an enemy to any who try seizing the power of the gods. This green Shaper champion binds each godtear with runic magic, crafting powerful sentinels like Landslide from living rock.

Maxen Maxen

The Artificer

Maxen

Unleash the firestorm

Possessed of a brilliant mind, Maxen easily grasps concepts beyond mortal understanding. Proof can be seen in his flock of mechanical Gearhawks. These helpful clockwork creatures perform tasks and may even be used as ammunition, in a pinch.

Keera Keera

The Dragon Princess

Keera

Live a legend

On the outside, this red Slayer is the essence of nobility. But on the inside, an untameable fire burns. Enemies are advised to tread lightly, for it is uncertain who they should fear more—the fiery mistress, or her mythical dragons. 

Lorsann Lorsann

The Autumnal Wind

Lorsann

Strike from afar

A red Slayer champion, Lorsann was once guardian of the Eternal Glade. Since then, she has led Mistwood Rangers from that hallowed place in pursuit of the destiny that calls to her. Few have seen Lorsann’s face, for death usually comes first—or, for those fortunate few, quickly after.

Morrigan Morrigan

The Lich King

Morrigan

The ancient queen of a fallen kingdom, the red Slayer Morrigan has watched and waited for the time to leave her frozen realm return to civilised lands. She marches ahead of her sinister vanguard, the skeletal Cold Bones, each one ready to steal the warmth of the living in service of their mistress.

Rangosh Rangosh

Scourge of the Broken Plains

Rangosh

Smash all asunder

A red Slayer champion, horrific tales of Rangosh’s violence and brutality have spread throughout the land. This tyrant rules over the plains with a barbed lash, destroying all those who oppose him. His only companions are the cold-hearted Red Bandits, whose loyalty was bought with coin.

Sneaky Peet Sneaky Peet

The Maligned

Sneaky Peet

Rule from the shadows

Untrustworthy and opportunistic thieves, goblins are almost universally loathed—but special hatred is reserved for this spiteful Slayer champion. Sneaky Peet's rapid ascension to leader of his tribe has more to do with animal cunning than ordained destiny.

Helena Helena

The Inspiration of Hope

Helena

Raise your banner

Pure of heart, beloved Helena strides into battle with a message not of conquest, but of unity. Wherever this sacred quest takes her, Rallied Peasants flock to her standard in hope of a better world. 

Finvarr Finvarr

Lord of Mirages

Finvarr

Fulfil your duty

A blue Guardian champion, Finvarr once stood guard over ancient elven forests. Now, he has left those glades in pursuit of another sacred duty. Accompanying him are the other Shadow Sentinels of his brotherhood—no longer silent wardens, but instead faithful companions to their newly-awakened leader.

Halftusk Halftusk

Warden of the Stonekin Isle

Halftusk

The last of his kind

A blue Guardian champion, Halftusk is the last of his people to avoid enslavement. The mantle of Warden has long sat upon his broad shoulders. He might seem a simple brute but, in truth, he's an anguished soul—kind towards the strange and primordial Froglodyte, and terrible to any who try to harm them!

Rhodri Rhodri

Thane of the Forsaken Holds

Rhodri

Stand proud

Stoic and resolute, this blue Guardian champion stands against all who would seek to visit ruin upon the land of his ancestors, or its people. Accompanied by his Household Guard, Rhodri's iron skin deflects all but the mightiest blows or deadliest blades.

Mournblade Mournblade

The Soulless

Mournblade

From beyond the grave

Once again, this fallen Guardian champion casts a dark shadow over the land of the living. Death is but a minor inconvenience when you have an endless lust for godhood. With a gust of grave wind, this cruel revenant extends his icy talons and beckons unsuspecting enemies into his malevolent grip.

Prepare for an epic tabletop skirmish

Once you've assembled your warband, your objective is simple: plant your banner and take out your enemies!

Understand the mechanics

Aim of the game

Godtear is played over three to five turns. Each turn is worth between 1 and 3 victory points. To score the points, you need to win the turn. The first player to score 5 victory points is the winner!

Aim of the game

Phases of a turn

Each turn is split into three phases: the plot phase, the clash phase, and the end phase. Depending on the phase, your champions and followers will have different skills. Flip their double-sided stat cards to see what you can do!

Phases of a turn

Battle ladder

Each turn has a numbered token. As you play, that token moves up and down the battle ladder at the edge of the board. To win the turn, the token needs to end on your side of the ladder.

Battle ladder

Scoring steps

Score steps on the battle ladder by planting your banner, defending it, and knocking out enemy champions and followers. Remember: the champion classes each have special traits that can gain them bonus steps on the ladder.

Scoring steps
Plot phase

Plot phase

Make your plans and get into position. In this phase, the first player activates all of their champions and followers. Then the second player activates all of their champions and followers. Pro tip: don't forget to plant your banner!

Clash phase

Clash phase

Let the fight begin! This phase is when you'll trade blows and take out enemies, taking turns to activate your champion and follower units until everyone has acted.

End phase

End phase

Time to tally the steps! If the turn token finishes on your side of the battle ladder, you win the turn and score the victory points. The first player to 5 victory points wins the game!
