What Happens Here?
The Launch Party consists of three activities designed to transform you from a novice human outworlder to a fully capable Archon—an ethereal and godlike native of the Crucible! There is a Learn to Play event. Players will use the Quick Start Rules and a Call of the Archons starter in a head to head contest. Up next, Call of the Master Vault scan and register your unique Archon Decks from your starter in to the Master Vault App. And Finally! Launch Party Tournament! Play 4 rounds with your new Archon Decks, keep the same deck through out or switch up things.
What is the Entry Fee?
These are free to play events; however, you will need to purchase the relevant KeyForge Starter Call of the Archons and/or Archons Decks.
What are the Prizes?
Participate in the Learn to Play event for a your choice of an Active House card featuring a Great House Icon on one side and a Chain Tracker on the other.
Register your Archon Decks to get another Active House Card and a chance to add to the Little Shop of Magic's Create-an-Archon Poster.
During the Launch Party Tournament players will have a chance at a 3rd Active House Card, while the top 3 players each get to select a house for Little Shop of Magic's Create-an-Archon Poster.
What All Can I Do During the Launch Party?
Three Activities Full of Awesome!!!
The Launch Party consists of three (fully awesome) activities designed to transform you from a novice human outworlder to a fully capable Archon—an ethereal and godlike native of the Crucible!
And more than this, O Archon, these activities will not only see you awaken to your full, majestic self—they will also lead you to your first prizes. You'll even capture your first shard of Æmber for your future conquests.
1. Learn to Play
You'll barely get into the door and secure your Call of the Archons starter set before you'll begin your quest for Æmber with a Learn-to-Play match against another newly awoken Archon. Using the QuickStart Rules and one of the two fixed starter decks—Radiant Argus the Supreme or Miss “Onyx” Censorius—you and your opponent will go head-to-head for the secrets of the first Vault you find.
After your game, however, you both win! Let our Wizards know you've finished your game, and you'll be awarded your choice of an Active House card. Active House cards can be used to declare your House during your games, and each offers a shocking look at one of the Great House's icons on one side and a Chain Tracker on the other.
2. Call of the Master Vault
After you've jumped into the game with one of the starter decks and shared the rewards of your first Vault, you'll be ready to explore the Crucible's secrets on your own terms—as a unique Archon!
You'll open the two unique Archon Decks from your Call of the Archons starter set. You'll download and open the Master Vault app, or access the website. Then you'll scan and register your decks… and voilà, you now have two decks that no one else in the world will ever have (unless you trade them away). You are now ready to become one of these Archons and battle for your next Vault.
As a reward for awakening these two unique Archons, you'll earn another Active House card, as well as a chance to add to your store's Create-an-Archon poster.
But wait! That's not all—there's still the Launch Party Tournament!
3. Launch Party Tournament
This is a chaotic time, O Archon, right after the Crucible first opens to a surge of outworlders—and so we recognize you'll likely try many chaotic things. And one of those things may be enjoying the opportunity to shapeshift from game to game, as you become four different Archons in four different games!
Yes! It's an astounding and unusual opportunity to explore unnatural phenomena… The Launch Party Tournament that concludes our KeyForge Launch Party will present you an opportunity to learn more about KeyForge first-hand.
This is a card game with no deckbuilding. With no resource costs. Where every single Archon Deck is unique. And where learning to play well is almost the same thing as uncovering the secrets of your deck. And this Launch Party Tournament will give you not one, but four ways to explore how those secrets manifest over the course of play.
It also gives you a chance to claim your third Active House card and a House poster. Finally, each of the event's top three players will designate one House for the shop's Create-an-Archon poster.
What is KeyForge?
It's the world's first Unique Deck Game, and that means that for every deck, there's no other deck exactly like it.
KeyForge is a two-player card game in which each player takes the role of an Archon, and leads that Archon’s deck against their opponent. A player’s deck represents a team that is attempting to gain Æmber and forge keys. The first player to gather three keys is able to unlock a Vault and win the game.
The defining feature of KeyForge is that no two decks are alike. This is not a trading card game—you cannot craft a deck. Rather, each deck must remain as it is. Every deck in existence is unique!
But How Does the Game Play?
Well, it's crazy, unexpected, fast… and FUN! None of the cards come with resource costs, so everything is free to play! But you can only activate the cards from one of your deck's three Houses in any given turn.
As a result, you have to learn how to use the cards in your hand and your deck as effectively as possible as you race your opponent to gather Æmber, forge three keys, and claim the secrets hidden within one of the Crucible's many Vaults.
Blast Through the Nearest Wormhole!
Do you still feel… human? Like a being incapable of commanding the legions of Mars, Brobnar, and Sanctum—or Shadows, Dis, and Logos—or any other combination of the Crucible's Great Houses? Do you still need to eat? Sleep? Breathe? Are you limited by your physical form?
Well, don't walk—run to the wormhole nearest you! There is a portal opening right in our shop, so blast through, and join us for our KeyForge Launch Party on November 15.
We've got the Æmber!
