For your mission, you will have to choose from 6 very different characters. Depending on your choice, you will not experience exactly the same adventure.
The abilities of each character are:
Strength, charisma, intelligence, skill and search.
In addition to these abilities, you will gain additional skills during the game. These skills will be very different for each character. They will be very important to the success of your missions and you will keep them from one investigation to the next.
Your characters will also have life points and mental health points. You will have to watch them very carefully, because if they fall to zero, your character will either be dead or completely crazy.
The landmark cards:
The landmark cards serve as their names indicate, to find one’s bearings. That is, each landmark card gives you the coordinates to go to a building. Each time you find or hear about a place, you will get the corresponding landmark card.
The places cards:
A library, a police station, a hospital, a cemetery, the sewers ... Here are some of the many places you will need to explore to solve your investigation. On each place card, different actions will be proposed. You are free to do whatever you wish. Be careful, some actions can have irreversible effects, think carefully.
During your investigation, you will meet many characters who will help you or who will try to stifle you. Be careful!
The Object cards:
The Object cards:
Many objects will help you in your adventure. Some objects can combine to form more advanced objects.
Like, for example : A rope + a tree branch can make a bow.
Flint + a tree branch can make an arrow.
All the events you will encounter during the game.
Random event cards:
We have created random events that will make each of your adventures truly unique.
With the many clues you'll find, the game will test your sense of observation and reflection. These puzzles will never be blocking, but it will be very difficult to finish the game without solving at least a part of it.
During the game, characters will give you documents that may or may not facilitate your investigation.
You will also be able to find some of these hidden documents in the different places of the game.
In any case, the rule is that you don't open a sealed envelope until the game clearly invites you to do so.
In the game you will find about ten small surprise boxes that you will have to open when asked. Even if we try to tell you as much as possible about the game, on this subject, we prefer to keep the mystery to the end.
The game board:
The game board will serve as a support for you to explore the different parts of the game.
It also includes:
• An action resolution table.
• An action counter, because the number of actions you can perform during the game will be limited and will depend on the level of difficulty you have chosen. Of course, some events and objects may increase your action counter.
• New rules and options that will be revealed during the adventure.
• An area for banned cards
How do we play ?
Ultimate Conspiracy is a true narrative game, you will not only have to thwart a conspiracy, but also complete many secondary quests that will help you in your investigation.
You will also find many objects, but as in real life, you won't be able to carry as many as you want. Each object has a clutter score and this is limited according to the characters and their strengths.
You all play against the game together. You decide which character should do which action, is it better to stay together or separate?
To solve the actions, we have created a very simple and efficient table. It has the advantage of taking into account the characteristics of the character who makes the action, the difficulty of the action and a little bit of chance.
The game is played with 2 dice of 6 faces (which will be supplied with the game) Like, for example: If you want to climb a ladder, you will take a skill test.
You must cross the skill of your character with the difficulty of the action. If your character has 6 skills and the difficulty of the action is 2, you will need to roll both dice and get 3 or more. This test is easy because your ability is much higher than the difficulty of the action.
If your character has 3 in skill and the difficulty of the action is 6, the test is much more difficult because you have to get 10 or more.
Saving the games:
Ultimate Conspiracy being relatively long and difficult, we have integrated a thermoforming in the box that allows you to save your games very easily.
Invite your friends, you will be able to play a different number of players at each game, even during an investigation.
Ultimate Conspiracy, a real collector's item !
Our goal is to make this game a very beautiful object. For that, we will print on the most beautiful paper possible. Moreover, the surprises contained in the game will also be of great quality (on this subject, we prefer to keep a part of mystery).
Ultimate Conspiracy being a Kickstarter exclusivity, we don't plan to sell it through the traditional circuit because the game would be too expensive. Enjoy it, you will have a real collector's item! We thank in advance all those who have chosen to support us.
The Origin extension:
When we wrote the story of Ultimate Conspiracy, it was so incredible that we couldn't put everything into 3 scenarios and 1200 cards.
The whole being very coherent, we created the extension "Origin" which takes place 15 years before the facts of the main campaign.
With new investigators, you'll meet some of the characters you met in the main campaign with 15 years less.
With this extension consisting of 800 new cards and 3 exciting new missions, you will finally understand the origin of the conspiracy.
New game mechanics and lots of amazing surprises await you. The "Origin" extension is optional, you can reserve it if you wish at the same time as the basic game.
Who are we ?
Good to know:
To get your copy of the game, don't wait because the fundraising campaign is limited to a total of 45 days. Go directly to Kickstarter. Are you going to succeed in thwarting the conspiracy?
We've been working on our project for several years now and we're happy to tell you that we've created a game that we hope will be one of the best investigation and adventure games ever seen.
We are committed to making Ultimate Conspiracy a success and we are very pleased to finally be able to launch our fundraising campaign. We would like to thank in advance all those who wish to support us.
Risks and challenges
You can change your mind at any time and ask for a refund, we won't ask you any questions.
If the refund request arrives after the fundraising campaign, we will retain a maximum of 10% of the amount for the fees we have to pay to Kickstarter.
Even if we put in all our energy to deliver the game in December 2018, there can still be a slight delay. Of course we'll try to avoid that, but if that happens, we'll let you know as soon as we find out.
The story being 90% complete, the number of final cards may vary slightly from our predictions.
For the seriousness of the operation, we have created a company called:"INOVA PRODUCTION" which is registered in the Trade Register of Tours in France.
We have all the resources and contacts (printers, distributors, transporters, customs, etc.) to complete our project. The risk is therefore extremely limited.
We thank you in advance for your confidence and hope that you will have at least as much fun with our game as we do in developing it.
