The World of Avertigos Ships Modules Heroes People of Avertigos


People who are very steady on their feet. A member of a Sky-ship crew.

In their world, Avertigos are an elite class of people that crew flying Sky-Ships. When these Sky-Ships unfurl their full complement of sails, nothing on land or sea can keep up with them. Gracefully riding the winds without a sound, these fearsome craft give their intended targets little to no warning of their approach, till the very moment they open fire. Only the militaries of world’s most powerful nations - and the richest, most influential trading families - can afford to own Sky-ships.


In the skies over most of the known world, the most powerful trading families maintain an iron grip on their territories through impenetrable webs of political allegiances, airborne armadas and spy networks. Wary of the threat of all-out war (especially the massive trade disruption such an event would cause), all but the most roguish families have learnt to live with the sedate growth, intrigue and manipulations of uneasy peace. It is when valuable goods are discovered on remote islands far off the coasts of the mainland that the game begins in deadly earnest.


Through the speed and manoeuvrability of the Sky-Ships - coupled with their formidable arsenal - an opportunistic trading family can monopolize the exotic goods from these remote locations, greatly increasing their wealth and stature. The battles for the supremacy of the skies over these islands are ferocious, and fought with unrestrained aggression. A family that is defeated in battle will forfeit their goods and cede their trading rights for that region, leaving in disgrace.Captured Sky-ships and Avertigos need to be ransomed or suffer years of indentured servitude with their rivals. For most of these proud merchant warriors, death is far more preferable when compared to such loss and dishonour.

Avertigos South China Sky (Living Miniatures Game)Edit

Avertigos is a Living Miniatures game that uses an innovative and proprietary height widget to allow players to raise and lower their miniature flying ships on the table top to simulate flight. These flying ships can rise to an impressive height of 12 inches over the game board, creating a thematically appropriate and satisfying visual and tactile experience while playing. In the game, ships that attain greater heights get tactical advantages such as reach and initiative over their rivals.

The ships are modular and can be customized to look and act very differently from each other. Customizing the ship is easy to do by simply picking up and replacing one module with another. The modules are sculpted to show what they do and represent various tactical abilities and features.  This creates many permutation and combinations of strategies and tactics for players to experiment with. The Game adopts an Asian Steampunk aesthetic that is evident in the design of the ships, modules and sails.  

Avertigos is available for Pre-order [preorders here]
