The world before the Moonfall
The Storyworld of Tsukuyumi
The world of Tsukuyumi has been more than just the setting for a board game since the beginning. The conflict over the white dragon, the world in the process of being rebuilt after the downfall, and a wide variety of factions provide plenty of depth and width to experience stories of almost any kind. Thus, Full Moon Down is just one of the many ways to immerse yourself in the world of Tsukuyumi.
The comic tells from the perspectives of the respective factions how the apocalypse came upon the world in the form of the moonfall.
This artbook contains numerous illustrations, sketches and notes from the creation of the storyworld around Tsukuyumi.
In this novel, AI-created cybersamurai meet culture-driving wild boars and ancient orders of knights who have dedicated their lives to fighting dragons. Wandering land whales have long ceased to be an unusual sight for the soldiers of the former aircraft carrier USS Nomad, which lies in the parched Pacific Ocean. In this world, four different characters find each other and must defend themselves against the deadly oni of the white dragon and prevent his sinister plan.
After the Moonfall
The pen-and-paper role-playing game After the Moonfall highlights the world of Tsukuyumi from the perspective of cooperative storytelling. The game group embodies characters from the various factions who work together under the banner of the Sentinels to make the world a better place after the moonfall.
After the Moonfall focuses on the shared history of everyone involved and offers a wide range of different species and backgrounds right from the start. All characters are competent from the beginning and and can directly shape the world to their will through their decisions.
The role-playing game
After the Moonfall Expansion (2020)
This expansion contains the factions: Kampfgruppe 03 and Children of the Lion. With this expansion, the game can also be played with 5 or 6 players. The included factions can also be used in 2-4 player games.
The brave knights of Kampfgruppe 03 are in heavy armored combat suits and are each specialized in one task area. There is the heavily armored Beowulf, Erzengel, who can be upgraded by tactical missiles or Freischütz, who can choose his targets and cause damage in adjacent area. If all specialists can fully develop their strengths, there is no military force that can compete with Kampfgruppe 03.
Children of the Lion
This clan travels together with its beasts, gigantic animal creatures that can be trained to fight. In addition, they can add new areas to the existing board and thus change the area in their favor, be it to put obstacles in the way of their opponents or to place themselves easy-to-conquer areas.
Sentinels Expansion (2020)
The Sentinels are ancient pandaren warriors whose ultimate goal is to destroy all Oni. If they succeed, they immediately win the game, regardless of their victory points. They can place portals on the field to quickly move between them, and use cloaking tokens to escape from battles unscathed and get back to their main job of hunting the Oni.
Fireborn Expansion (2020)
Fireborn dragons are capable of permanently devastating enemy homelands for permanent victory points. By also devastating regular areas, they can reduce the total number of victory points for their opponents. You can always grow and get new skills and improved properties at higher levels.
Lords of the Lost Sea Expansion (2020)
Rise of the Moon Princess Expansion (2020)
The Moon Princess has awakened! In this cooperative and solo expansion for Tsukuyumi – Full Moon Down, the Moon Princess controls her own faction of Oni to take over the world! In this version of the game, the players’ goal is to work together (or solo) to fight the never-ending Oni attack, unleashed by Tsukuyumi’s daughter!
Leadership Cards Expansion (2020)
This expansion brings new, strong leaders for all factions into the game. After game setup, each player chooses one of the three possible leaders of their faction. Leaders bring special abilities that can be used to individualize your own play style.
Event Horizon Expansion (2019)
Event Horizon is aimed at experienced gaming groups. Included are unique starting advantages that add variety to the game setup and first turns. In addition, you will find new action cards in this expansion, which have a much stronger impact on the overall gameplay.
Some of these expansions have already been released for the Tsukuyumi version with cardboard standees.
Sunrise Kingdom Expansion (2023)
Crowdfunding for the miniature version of Sunrise Kingdom is planned for early 2023.
Time has passed and the Sun Goddess Amaterasu, Tsukuyumi’s sister, intervenes to save her creation. She opens the portals of ancient times and sends the Guardians to assist the living beings of the world. Sunrise Kingdom is set in the southern hemisphere where Australia once was. Here you are further away from the moon, but peace does not reign here either. Surviving factions fight for resources, habitat and against the Oni onslaught. This expansion contains 5 new factions and
2 new modules, which can also be combined with the previous factions.
Sisters of Seven
These elite warriors are highly mobile thanks to their flying battle suits, have individual battle cards, and can bring valuable fertile grounds into play through their faction effect. Thanks to their defensive command, they can often displace attacking units before they can do any damage.
The goal of these ancient tortoises is to awaken the Jade Guardians that lie dormant in the earth. Jade Guardians are unique beings of great power, which have a great influence on the gameplay. Not only do they all have special effects when awakened, but they also automatically control the areas in which they stand, thanks to the new Burrow trait.
Circle of the Sun
These people are the chosen ones of the Sun Goddess, and move across the land in large groups. When their units are properly positioned, they form formations that can even help them turn Oni into their own units through Amaterasu’s light or generate instant victory points. They may seem harmless compared to other factions at the beginning, and exploit this advantage wherever possible.
Die Zirkusclowns rasen in ihren aufgemotzten Karren über den Ozeanboden und werfen sich ohne Rücksicht auf Verluste in den Kampf. The circus clowns race across the ocean floor in their souped-up carts, throwing themselves into battle regardless. With no homezone, they can swoop down on the other factions from either side and conquer territories they thought were safe in the blink of an eye.
A coral reef does not need units to exert its influence on the world, nor does it need combat actions or counterattacks. Instead, it spreads steadily, carrying its spores far across the board to settle in the backs of its enemies, take hold, and expand from there.
Chronomasters Expansion (2023)
Crowdfunding for the miniature version of the Chronomasters is planned for early 2023.
The Chronomasters are 12 time-traveling monkeys who return from the future to save the Earth from disaster. While the other factions have to laboriously conquer territory by territory, they already control large parts of the board at the beginning of the game thanks to their knowledge about the future. Not only does this allow them to play the game backwards, but they are also free to choose which phase to play and when. With their ability Time Warp they can send whole armies back in time, as if they had never left their homezone. Be surprised how the Chronomasters bring exciting new ideas to the game, while adding and changing the game in the usual Tsukuyumi manner.
Dark Crusade Expansion (2023)
Crowdfunding for the miniature version of the Dark Crusade is planned for early 2023.
When Mardukorden began its fight against Tsukuyumi, the boldest knights were given the hardest of tasks: Kampfgruppe 01 was to land on the moon and defeat the dragon once and for all.
But the mission was no success. They suffered heavy losses. Their battlesuits severly damaged, the knights of the Kampfgruppe 01 were imbued with Tsukuyumi´s power and became Oni. But their intense training and their faith were strong. They were able to resist the transformation and keep their own will. With their new powers, they patched their battlesuits with organic mass and ascended from the inner core of the moon. Half Oni and half knight, ready to rain havoc on whoever steps in the way of their crusade.
