Kickstarter Glossary

Welcome to the Alteil Kickstarter Rewards Details Page! Alteil has made it this far thanks to its devoted player-base. Now, it's time to expand and head for the Horizon with an all-new game -- Alteil Horizons!

Alteil Horizons will have all the great ideas and tactical gameplay of the original in a polished, exciting, and modern game. We've got a Kickstarter to help make this dream a reality. You can click on the link below to see the reward levels for backing us, or just scroll down to see details on the individual rewards. Thank you all in advance!

Note:

Please note that all Alteil 1 US accounts will be considered Alteil Horizons accounts after the launch. Alteil 1 US cards will be fully playable after Horizons launch, however they may or may not be part of the Horizons Core set, and if they are not, their might be some limits on using them for balance purposes, such as in tournaments.

If you are unsure, cashing any rewards in after launch will guarantee cards/Starters/and pre-builts as part of the Alteil Horizons Core set.

Gran

Gran is the in-game currency of Alteil. 1000 Gran generally costs about $10 to add to your account.

The Gran as any part of a reward level will be granted around launch.

However, if you are an Alteil 1 US user and want your Gran ahead of time, you will be given that option at the end of the Kickstarter if you supply the name of a valid Alteil 1 US account.

Note, at launch all Alteil 1 US accounts will be able to access Alteil Horizons and be considered Alteil Horizons accounts.

Your name in the Alteil Credits

Your name will live on throughout the ages, immortalized on our credits page. Credits will be administered according pledge level, so everyone will know just how awesome the big pledgers are, who made this game possible!

Exclusive Alteil Horizons Kickstarter Avatar

This reward will be granted around Horizons launch.

Three rewards in one! Golden Wings, Horizons Astrolabe background, and Kickstarter briefcase are all separate avatar items. They will never be available outside of the Kickstarter.

Start with all 4 Starter Decks

Under normal circumstances, you'll start with the Starter deck of your choice, and get access to the other three at level 10.

This reward gives you a little head start, and you'll get a card that can be redeemed for all four Alteil Horizons starters as early as level 1.

However, if you are an Alteil 1 US user and want your starters ahead of time, you will be given that option at the end of the Kickstarter if you supply the name of a valid Alteil 1 US account. Keep in mind that you will end up with Alteil 1 US Starters, and not Altiel Horizons Starters. They will not necessarily be the same. See notes for Alteil 1 US cards in Alteil Horizons above.

Note, at launch all Alteil 1 US accounts will be able to access Alteil Horizons and be considered Alteil Horizons accounts.

Alteil Pre-Build of your Choice

If you get this reward as part of your chosen reward Level", this will be granted around Alteil Horizons launch.

However, if you are an Alteil 1 US user and want your Pre-build(s) ahead of time, you will be given that option at the end of the Kickstarter if you supply the name of a valid Alteil 1 US account. Keep in mind that you will end up with Alteil 1 US Pre-builds, and not Altiel Horizons Pre-builds. They will not necessarily be the same. See notes for Alteil 1 US cards in Alteil Horizons above.

Note, at launch all Alteil 1 US accounts will be able to access Alteil Horizons and be considered Alteil Horizons accounts.

Obsidian Dragon

Obsidian dragon is big and burning, and he only gets stronger the higher your red (Gowen) and violet (Lawtia) Sphere levels go! It's a similar mechanic to 'fire breath' in other games where extra resources can be funneled into damage.

Close skills trigger when a unit dies, so there is just no way to deal with this dragon without taking a face-full of damage!

This Kickstarter exclusive will never be available again, not even in the Japanese version.

If you get this reward as part of your chosen reward Level", this will be granted around Alteil Horizons launch.

However, if you are an Alteil 1 US user and want it ahead of time, you will be given that option at the end of the Kickstarter if you supply the name of a valid Alteil 1 US account. This Card will be the same in Alteil 1 US and Alteil Horizons.

Tim Buckley (Ctrl+Alt+Del): Efreet

This is an alternate art card, meaning it has the same stats and abilities of the standard card, but looks a whole lot cooler, and is a whole lot rarer!

Tim is one of the most popular artists in his field and he's gone all out to create an impressive Efreet. You can check out the video of his creative process here.

However, if you are an Alteil 1 US user and want it ahead of time, you will be given that option at the end of the Kickstarter if you supply the name of a valid Alteil 1 US account. This Card will be the same in Alteil 1 US and Alteil Horizons.

Zach Wiener (Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal): Boulder Drop

This is an alternate art card, meaning it has the same stats and abilities of the standard card, but looks a whole lot cooler, and is a whole lot rarer!

Uh did we say cooler? We meant more ridiculous... Leave it to the comic stylings of Zach Wiener to instantly pick out one of the silliest cards in the game and make it about a thousand times more hilarious! It's easy to see why Zach's long running SMBC is still exploding in popularity.

If you get this reward as part of your chosen reward Level", this will be granted around Alteil Horizons launch.

However, if you are an Alteil 1 US user and want it ahead of time, you will be given that option at the end of the Kickstarter if you supply the name of a valid Alteil 1 US account. This Card will be the same in Alteil 1 US and Alteil Horizons.

Woody Hearn (GU Comics): Folart Knight Captain

This is an alternate art card, meaning it has the same stats and abilities of the standard card, but looks a whole lot cooler, and is a whole lot rarer!

As the illustrator of a comic about gamers that has done more than it's share of World of Warcraft and other fantasy game strips, Woody is no stranger to armored knights.

This Kickstarter exclusive will never be available again, not even in the Japanese version.

If you get this reward as part of your chosen reward Level", this will be granted around Alteil Horizons launch.

Possessed Wildcat

The Possessed Wildcat is a Monster subtype in the Gowen Sphere (red). Now Gowen is generally pure beat 'em up, but their Monsters are giant animals from a huge Primeval forest in Lavato. This nature theme means they generally have some kind of healing ability, and the Wildcat is no exception. His ability to 'Share the Kill' allows him to heal himself or a friendly Monster. It requires a dead enemy, but with his heavy-hitting Start Skill (triggers at the start of the turn automatically) that's not much of a problem. Clobbering plus healing is a great combo!

This Kickstarter exclusive will never be available again.

If you get this reward as part of your chosen reward Level", this will be granted around Alteil Horizons launch.

However, if you are an Alteil 1 US user and want it ahead of time, you will be given that option at the end of the Kickstarter if you supply the name of a valid Alteil 1 US account. This Card will be the same in Alteil 1 US and Alteil Horizons.

Black Mantle Jacques

One of the strongest tricks available to the Lawtia Sphere (violet) is resource denial. Black Mantle here has two ways to do it. Not only can he drain Spell Points with his action skill, but his Close Skill (triggers when he is killed) actually takes the enemy's Spell Point and gives it to you. That's right, he's a thief who steals from the rich and gives to you! That's way better than Robin Hood. He's also one of the many Lawtia cards that is more powerful at Night, which means he'll be a great combo with a variety of other nighttime cards.

This Kickstarter exclusive will never be available again.

If you get this reward as part of your chosen reward Level", this will be granted around Alteil Horizons launch.

However, if you are an Alteil 1 US user and want it ahead of time, you will be given that option at the end of the Kickstarter if you supply the name of a valid Alteil 1 US account. This Card will be the same in Alteil 1 US and Alteil Horizons.

Miko Princess Hirume

A former agent of Batora turned respectable (?) member of Lavato's elite, Hirume has powers beyond the imagination of even the greatest Regus sorcerer. The Falkow Sphere (blue) often defuses enemy units by engaging them (a unit that already has taken its turn is engaged). Hirume cashes in on that by turning engaging into a purely destructive art. And what's the point of her ability to engage units that are already dead? Well, let's just say she's an answer for those enemies that don't like to stay dead...

This Kickstarter exclusive will never be available again.

If you get this reward as part of your chosen reward Level", this will be granted around Alteil Horizons launch.

However, if you are an Alteil 1 US user and want it ahead of time, you will be given that option at the end of the Kickstarter if you supply the name of a valid Alteil 1 US account. This Card will be the same in Alteil 1 US and Alteil Horizons.

Slave Of Batora Advance Release Pack

Contains 4 cards in each pack, one for each servant of Batora that has been purified and joined the fight against evil. This Advance pack contains Reckless Immortal Helcuras, Poison Lover Rosetta, Lord of Wei Kanyu, and Warped Genius Albert

Reckless Immortal Helcuras

One of the toughest to kill level 3 units ever seen, and one of the hardest hitting. Counter Skills like his are triggered whenever he gets hit and survives, allowing you to counterattack immediately!

If you are an Alteil 1 US user and you supply the name of a valid Alteil 1 US account at the end of the Kickstarter, you will be given this card at least two months before its general release in the shop.

Otherwise, this will be granted around Alteil Horizons launch.

Stats and abilities are subject to change during balance testing

This Card will be the same in Alteil 1 US and Alteil Horizons.

Poison Lover Rosetta

Rosetta has the unique power of forcing an enemy unit to spend his turn attacking a unit of your choice. It must be one of yours, but considering the number of cards that have special powers that trigger when they are hit or killed, and also that having control over when your units die also gives you control over when your Soul Skills are triggered, this is a great strategic asset.

If you are an Alteil 1 US user and you supply the name of a valid Alteil 1 US account at the end of the Kickstarter, you will be given this card at least two months before its general release in the shop.

Otherwise, this will be granted around Alteil Horizons launch.

Stats and abilities are subject to change during balance testing

This Card will be the same in Alteil 1 US and Alteil Horizons.

Lord of Wei Kanyu

Kanyu is a powerful destructive force all on his own. His Cry of Wu, unleashes an aura of power that can literally destroy those who hear it. Not only is it targeted, but it also bypasses armor, and is used each turn automatically in addition to his normal skills. Add that to his double-attacking action skill, he's quite capable of killing three enemies in one turn!

If you are an Alteil 1 US user and you supply the name of a valid Alteil 1 US account at the end of the Kickstarter, you will be given this card at least two months before its general release in the shop.

Otherwise, this will be granted around Alteil Horizons launch.

Stats and abilities are subject to change during balance testing

This Card will be the same in Alteil 1 US and Alteil Horizons.

Warped Genius Albert

A cruel scientist, Albert makes for a multi-purpose debuffer in your deck. His ability to erode defense makes it very difficult for the enemy to tank your front line, and when he erodes Max HP, it can spell the end for unliving units like Undead.

If you are an Alteil 1 US user and you supply the name of a valid Alteil 1 US account at the end of the Kickstarter, you will be given this card at least two months before its general release in the shop.

Otherwise, this will be granted around Alteil Horizons launch.

Stats and abilities are subject to change during balance testing

This Card will be the same in Alteil 1 US and Alteil Horizons.

June Bride Legendary Heroine Catria

Our artists are Japanese, and that means one of the things they love to do is re-imagine the games most powerful female heroines in wedding dresses. Catria here is considered by some to be the strongest card in the game. She must always be the last card on the field before she can be killed, and that makes her scary even at one copy.

If you are an Alteil 1 US user and you supply the name of a valid Alteil 1 US account at the end of the Kickstarter, you will be given this card at least two months before its general release in the shop.

Otherwise, this will be granted around Alteil Horizons launch.

Stats and abilities are subject to change during balance testing

This Card will be the same in Alteil 1 US and Alteil Horizons.

Triple Change Card

In Alteil, you can have up to three copies of a single card in your deck. Because of the revival system (where expending a copy lets you revive a card), many strategies demand three of a kind of your key cards. That's where triple change cards come in. If you have a copy of a rare card, you can turn it into three copies permanently! Yes, two additional copies will be added to your collection permanently. The max rarity that can be effected depends on the number of stars on the card, the higher the better, max of 5

Digital Art Books

Alteil is known for its art, created by renown Japanese fantasy artists, designers, and manga-ka. Each art book is a PDF of some of the best from each of the Spheres at a large size.

Gotten as part of any reward level of $35 or above, this will be granted within a month of Alteil Horizons launch.

Downloadable Soundtrack

We've already had the main Alteil music and all the battle tracks re-composed and re-performed. Now, we're adding even more tracks as we go. You'll get it all as a digital download!

Gotten as part of any reward level of $50 or above, this will be granted within a month of Alteil Horizons launch.

Premium Account

Alteil Premium includes 50 slots to store decks instead of the usual ten, grants full access to the Marketplace at level 1, enhanced statistics and data on your decks and matchups, the ability to change your user name and more!

Community Tournament Bonuses

The community tournament system we are planning will allow users to progress upward through a set of tiers, each one allowing them to give better prizes. The better prizes you give, the better rartings the players will give you, and the more players you will get. This lets you rise through the tiers even faster.

Even if the community tournament system Stretch Goal isn't reached, we will still run community tournaments manually through the forums.

As we develop any community based features, you will have input through a special forum and/or mailing list.

Gift Ten other accounts of your choice

Have a lot of friends? Have a lot of ALTs? This bonus lets you give ten other accounts Gran and Obsidian Dragons. On the Grand level, triple change cards, too.

If you get this reward as part of your chosen reward Level", this will be granted within two months of Alteil Horizons launch.

However, if you are an Alteil 1 US user and want it ahead of time, you will be given that option at the end of the Kickstarter if you supply the name of ten(!) valid Alteil 1 US accounts.

More Point Cards for Guild Events

Often we'll have events, sometimes simple, sometimes more complicated, where an entire guild will receive a prize. Generally this prize includes Point Cards, cards you can collect and then trade in for any normal Set card in the game of your choice.

When any guild you are part of (you don't actually have to be the guild master) earns point cards from a guild event (except community tournaments), all guild members get +5 Point Cards

Note, if there are multiple players in one guild with this ability, it's +1 Point Card per additional player with this ability, max of 10).

Holy Aura

Batora is the ultimate evil - and when his minions ambush you in the Arena, you'll need every advantage you can get. When Batora appears, the users will have to defeat him a certain number of times within a time limit to get a big prize. This power will give you a huge advantage against Batora, not only giving you the chance to get a big payout, but you can give the entire server the edge they need to keep evil at bay!

Personalized Alteil Lessons

Alteil has layers of strategy, and once you break through one layer, you'll see the whole game in a new light. Personalized lessons are a shortcut to making strategic breakthroughs!

Make sure you include your preferred method of contact at the end of the Kickstarter.

We will make every effort to get all these lessons within the first few months of Alteil Horizons, depending on demand. If you're really lucky, some of our teachers might be willing to help out during the Beta, giving you a real head start!

Every Non-exclusive Alternate Art Card in the Game

We have a lot of alternate art cards at this point, about 90. So you're getting a good number of cards! These are all about the art, so our best artists are on them, and they are ripping it up with some of the best pieces in the whole game. On top of that, we tend to make alternate art of popular cards, so you can bet they are some of the best in the arena!

If you get this reward as part of your chosen reward Level", this will be granted around Alteil Horizons launch.

However, if you are an Alteil 1 US user and want it ahead of time, you will be given that option at the end of the Kickstarter if you supply the name of a valid Alteil 1 US account.

One of each of the Top 100 Soul Cards

For starters, you know you're getting a good number of cards here, 100! And, what makes Soul Cards interesting is that you generally just need one copy of each good one. Like all soul cards, these cards can be used as normal units as well, it's your choice.

If you are a current user and choose to get them pre-launch, this set will contain cards not in Horizons Core. See the top of the page for the disclaimer.

After launch, this reward will only include cards in Horizons Core and Horizons Core legal sets.

If you get this reward as part of your chosen reward Level", this will be granted within a month of Alteil Horizons launch.

However, if you are an Alteil 1 US user and want it ahead of time, you will be given that option at the end of the Kickstarter if you supply the name of a valid Alteil 1 US account.

Every Card from the first Alteil Horizons Set

In addition to the Horizons Core (a starting group of cards that will make the foundation of gameplay and balance), we will have a new card set around Horizons launch. It will be a set of 60 cards, and will likely form the early strategies for Horizons in the arenas!

Commissioned Art

You can get commissioned Alternate Card Art from one of the following amazing guest artists

First, you get to choose an Alteil card and commission new art from your choice of artist. Once it is ready, you will get three copies of that card with the new art. In addition, you can give three copies (each) of that card with the new art to two other accounts of your choice. You we also receive a large PDF of the artwork.

For any commissioned artwork, you may add 3 more copies for 20$ per set, and each set can go to an account of your choice. Gifts for your guildmates!

Due to the nature of this reward, it will take some time to get all of this work completed and to the backers. Our goal is to complete all commissions within 6 months.

Disclaimer: We will make every effort to ensure artists not employed by Apocoplay complete their commissions on-time and within specifications. However, in the unlikely event there is an issue with an artist or their work, we will make every effort to supply an alternate artist. Failing that we will attempt to find an alternate reward level to make up for the issue. If that is impossible, we will offer a refund of the pledge amount, minus service fees external to Apocoplay.

These commissions represent a creative, collaborative effort between you, the backer, and the artist. Although unlikely, the artist retains the right to refuse any request for personal reasons.

The Alteil Art Team

This is our team of veteran Japanese artists, you can read about some of their work on the Kickstarter Page and see their art all over the site.

As with the above commissions, you get to art-direct the design. We will draw up a list of what staff artists are available, and you can choose. Otherwise, this works like the other commission Levels.

New Cards Designed by You

There are two versions of this. One is a single card, the other is a set of 4 as an EX Pack.

"EX Packs" are extensions to normal Card Set releases, usually containing between 4 and 8 cards. This reward involves you designing alongside Apocoplay either on one card, or four new cards for an EX Pack for general release. You will work on everything - the back story, the flavor text, the name of the pack, and the art (handled by the JP art team).

You will get 3 copies of each of the new cards on three accounts of your choice. In addition, you will have access to the cards at least two months before anyone else in the game!

If you like, one of the cards can be based on your name and appearance, making you a part of Alteil forever!


In the unlikely event that information here contradicts the main Kickstarter page, the Kickstarter page takes precedence.
