The race for Sky Shards is on. A millennium has gone by in a flash and the upcoming competition to appoint the next Sage has set all the Races of Aetheros aflutter. Even with existing magical abilities of varying kinds, no price is too high for the power to decide the fate of Aetheros. The Werebeast, Seraphim, Elf, Succubus, and Yokai will each send their Ascendant in hopes of fulfilling the destinies these Ascendants have devoted their entire lives preparing for. With the aid of their Empyrean and Lightbringers, the Ascendants pit themselves against one another in order to hunt for Sky Shards to become the next Sage. The eternal glory of an entire Race lies in the hands of one. This is the world of Aetheros, and let the competition begin.
Ascendants of Aetheros is a thrilling stand-alone card game combining strategy, skill and a little bit of luck. The game is ideal for two to four players and set in the magical world of Aetheros. Players take on the role of an Ascendant and compete to become the next Sage by acquiring the rarest Sky Shards.
Part human part beast, the Werebeast Race thrives in the evergreen forests. They are friendly and welcoming to new citizens regardless of descent.
They are a noble and proud Race with wings resembling that of an angel’s. Despite their appearance, the Seraphim Race are actually masters of destruction.
An enigmatic Race known for their elegance and innocence. They strive for peace and balance, which puts them at odds with the Seraphim.
These sultry demons are the only beings in Aetheros that have the ability to corrupt Sky Shards. They are disliked by all for their habit of “borrowing” items without returning them.
They are demonic spirits who hail from the furthest corner of Aetheros. These creatures are said to cause disease, famine and sometimes even death.
Not a Race but consists of those banished from their respective Races for varying reasons. Lured by the chance of being released from exile, these beings also participate in the Ascendancies.
