Within the game, you'll find yourself facing a choice between the Light and the Darkness. Do you join the angelic Ahura Mazda or do you embrace the darkness alongside Ahriman? The core game, Rise Of Darkness, challenges you to take on Angra Mainyu and stop the world from crumbling around you.

If you're interested in learning more about the gameplay of Guardians Of Fire then you can check out our Let's Play...

If you want to know even more then you can also download their work-in-progress Rulebook HERE. It's really cool to see a board game in this style that steps away from the traditional trappings of Western Fantasy. The focus on mythology and folklore from Ancient Persia is a welcome change and opens up the doors for people to do loads of additional reading on a part of history that many might not be familiar with!

If you're tempted to back the project then you can snap up a core box that comes packed with absolutely loads of content.

As you'll have noted, loads of different and interesting heroes as well as devilish fiends and minions for you to tackle! There is also loads of gorgeous art on the tiles and such which make me think a lot of Diablo II. The Dark Fantasy themes are strong with this one.

You can get a closer look at the miniatures and more soon but Gerry had a blast painting up the prototypes that we used in the Let's Play. There is also a wealth of detail worked into the fifty-hour campaign which has been made replayable too!

If fifty hours of campaign wasn't enough for you then you can also check out the City Of The Damned expansion which can be included with some pledges.

This includes badass werewolves into the mix (awesome) as well as a new hero for you to use against the deadly forces of darkness. With most, if not all, of the original characters being quite magically based it's cool to see a martial character enter the fray as well.

Backers of the campaign will also get access to a Kickstarter exclusive character in the form of Mardan. Who wouldn't want to summon a fiery lion?

PLUS, they are already unlocking Stretch Goals. The campaign has knocked through its relatively modest goal and is now seeking to add the likes of this fellow into the mix...

Bring the angelic badassery to the tabletop in fine form. This is just the first of many Stretch Goals which will include additional heroes and villains for you to face off against.

Make sure to drop your thoughts on Guardians Of Fire in the comments down below. Gerry has spent a while diving into it so he should be able to answer your questions if you have any.

Watch out for an interview with the designer of the game in a few weeks too!
