Welcome to the arena.

Templars of Kayne is a quick to play strategic board game designed by Forsaken Games. It consists of the training battles held by the titular templars of Kayne, giving each player a small force of 3 to 5 of said Templars and getting them to battle it out until only one side is left standing. Two notable things about the game are the cartoonish triangular character art, and the speed of play, which is designed to imitate traditional wargaming while only taking quarter of an hour to play a game. There are currently 3 games associated with Templars of Kayne: Welcome to the Arena, the main game, with the board, 40 templars, and the rules; Enter the Fray, an expansion allowing for up to 5 players to play simultaneously, as well as adding 5 more templars; and Join the Ranks, adding a further 20 templars.

Tropes

  • Aura Vision: Implied to be Twylyth's means of seeing anything.
  • Battle Couple: Celviler and Feldin. Not only is it canon, they also pair surprisingly well as a combo in game!
  • Blue Blood: The title of Head Templar is hereditary, with some contingency in place for unexpected death.
  • Ethnic Magician: Xavier and Stefan are both Ma'Dhreshi wizards, however, all of the countries have wizards of some kind.
  • Fantastic Fighting Style: All of the Templars hailing from the White Hills follow "The Path of Action Before Thought"
  • Fantasy Gun Control: Averted by Darryn and Anne, who respectively use bombs and a portable cannon.
  • For the Lulz: Basically the only reason that "Team Playing God" (Illyamna, Mordecai, Georgia and Shaun) do anything.
  • Guilt-Free Extermination War: There is one between Kayne and the Barbarics.
  • Healing Shiv: Jedediah's attacks heal allies and harm enemies.
  • Immortality Hurts: Promethea. Word of god says that if she is killed in game, this is merely her being incapacitated to a level that she cannot instantly regenerate it.
  • Meaningful Name: Many. To name a few, Erica Vaen, the blood magician, Gail Daunpour having weather control, Ivan Tinkah creating Magitek contraptions, Vivian Lune hunting werewolves and the like...
