The World of Yafsiga

Heed the Call of Adventure

An eldritch phenomena called the Bloom has swiftly brought cataclysm to the prosperous kingdom of Yafseo, leaving behind ruins and silence amidst an eerie Eternal Spring.

Daring and desperate bands of adventurers, mercenaries, and sellswords now strike out into these crumbling vestiges of Yafseo. They clash against their rivals to secure treasure, knowledge, and territory in this perilous no-man’s land, hoping to claim the spoils of victory and earn great renown upon their return from this deathtrap now known as...

The Bloomsreach.



The Rules and Mechanics

Yafsiga is a diceless skirmish game for two players designed to utilize a single deck of poker cards to generate thrilling, tactical skirmishes between warbands in the remains of a once-great kingdom. Players will utilize face cards to facilitate activation of their units and use the numbered cards of the chaos deck to cinch the successes they need to triumph over their opponents. A bespoke scenario generator caps off the experience, thrusting both players into the maw of danger as their warband is forced to adapt to the changing landscape of the Bloomsreach.

Each player has the complete freedom to build the warband of their imagination using Yafsiga's roster system. Blending the line between Wargame and Roleplaying Game, players will stat out their profiles with as many bonuses they can afford and weapons they can muster. This is the Bloomsreach, after all. Your warband will need all the help they can get.

After you've played standalone games with friends and foes alike, dive into narrative play with Yafsiga's campaign system, offering points of origin and motives for your warbands with unique reward and injury tables and memorable merchants to visit between skirmishes. Play a simple three-act arc in a day, or prolong your campaigns into a larger narrative with your friends as your warbands grow in renown across the Bloomsreach and beyond.

The Miniatures

Yafsiga features a full range of high quality resin miniatures. This line of miniatures is lovingly sculpted and expertly cast right here in the USA with the quality one can expect from other Black Site Studio projects.

The launch wave features two warbands: the stalwart Telograd Expedition, and the Taiga Clan Retinue. Both will have a distinct style and curated look in order to help play into the narrative aspect of Yafsiga. The miniatures line now includes many diverse options with which to build your warband, including options for Chalice Knights, Yafsedi Claimwalkers, and more!

We here at Black Site Studio are committed to expanding the range of minis and characters for this system well into the future. If you've supported our previous endeavors, you'd know that we are passionate about getting unique, premium sculpts into the hands of gamers and hobbyists.
