What is Battle for Nethervein?
Set in a dark fantasy world full of steampunk inventions and Lovecraftian horror, Battle for Nethervein is a modern board game inspired by MOBA computer game genre. The main feature is an action packed gameplay. Players divide into two teams fighting for either the Syndicate or the Swarm. During the game a player controls a hero, who gets stronger and gains new skills as the game goes on. A player's actions influence what happens on the battlefield. He can fight on the frontline and push it to the opposing tower. He can fulfill quests around the board to gain advantage. Or he can just go head to head with opposing heroes.
