We are the Orphaned Tribes.
We are the Kingless Folk.
Abandoned at the wrong side of Avalon, beyond clouds of Wyrdness and ancient walls of Tutahan.
Yet, we survived, clinging to the strips of desolate land. In the centuries that followed, three great heroes were born out of our struggles. Each of them embodied our pain, determination - and sins.

Claudyne, the Unknighted.
Amberqueen Veneda.
Nonus, Bishop of the Deep. 

One by one, they traveled east, following the whispers of the Crimson Crucible and the visions of the sword of legend. Their journey transformed them, imbuing them with powers not intended for humans.
One by one, they failed to find Arthur, the one and true king... and yet, we now have kings of our own. The Kings of Ruin.

Tainted Grail: Kings of Ruin is a new stand-alone story campaign from the team behind the acclaimed Tainted Grail board game. Playable with a brand new set of exciting characters, it continues the stories of Fall of Avalon, Last Knight, and Age of Legends while also providing a perfect self-contained entry into the saga for new players. 
We are using all our experience from over 150+ hours of narrative content already created for Tainted Grail to make the Kings of Ruin one of the most mechanically polished and most exciting stories in board games. It will include several key improvements over the previous Tainted Grail adventures, including changes to Menhir travel system, rebalanced character advancement, and many other twists.
In addition to Tainted Grail: Kings of Ruin, we will also offer players a chance to catch up on epic journeys through Avalon with Tainted Grail Second Edition - an updated and remastered version of the original trilogy and all its expansions, spanning hundreds of hours of carefully crafted narrative experience for 1-4 players, and presented using 700+ pages of Exploration Journals, 1800+ cards, and 50+ beautiful models. 

For more information on both Tainted Grail: Kings of Ruin and Tainted Grail 2nd Edition, including exclusive previews and community votes, make sure to follow this project. We plan a secret reward for following it early, to be revealed soon!
