There are two sides to the conflict in the skies above Arkady
As commander of the HMS Dauntless & Dominion, you have been tasked by the Emperor to defend Grand Compact from the merciless air pirates threatening our fiar lands. With your staunch crew of steam welders, engineers, navigators and gun-ners you fly with honor into battle.
Known and feared, you have risen through the cutthroat cadres to become a warcaptain of the Domain of the Air Pirates. You swear to never rest until the control of the skies is yours and the Grand Compact falls!
Aether Captains is steampunk themed, scenario-based, dice game for 2-5 players. One player takes on the role of a commander of the worthy naval zeppelins, battling a wave of attacking air pirates who are controlled by the rest players. Your zeppelin consists of five or six dice (depending the ship type) designating various sections of the ship and positioned in a row: gun emplacements, command deck, and the engine. The dice rotate their faces down or up as you take on dam-age or try to repair the ship. Damage can mean loss of maneuverability, as well as reduction in at-tack and defensive strength. The pirate ships also consist of one to three dice per pirate player. Each pirate player has different objectives to fulfill during the game.
