San Francisco, 1937: Your cargo plane flies through a portal in the sky, transporting you to a rugged landscape filled with bizarre creatures, scheming gods, and untold dangers. But can you find your way back before the portal closes?
Sleeping Gods: Distant Skies is a standalone sequel set in the world of Sleeping Gods. As in the original game, you and your friends trek through a vast landscape as you read branching storylines and meet vivid characters, but in this game you interact with the atlas on a deeper level — camping, exploring, overcoming obstacles, and searching for lost relics. The new action system allows you even greater agency while you travel and explore.
The Gamefound Collector's edition comes in a bigger and nicer box (featuring gold foil and embossing) than the retail edition, features a painted airplane miniature, and includes 3 extra combat dice, 15 metal stamina tokens, a miniature for each of the five playable characters (the retail edition has cardboard standees, also included in the Collector's edition), and the Thunderstorm Isle expansion.
In addition to the exploration and quest system from the original game, Sleeping Gods: Distant Skies features a fresh spin on combat. Players now build a combat deck from which they draw a varied hand of cards to play, making each combat encounter a fresh and dynamic puzzle.
Although Sleeping Gods: Distant Skies builds on story elements in the first game, you do not need to play Sleeping Gods to enjoy this sequel. The game features new characters and storylines, explaining concepts from the original game as you encounter them.
Return to the world of Sleeping Gods and experience a thrilling tale that hinges on your choices in a truly open-world experience!
Thunderstorm Isle is a faraway location outside of the atlas that you can fly to in your plane. It includes 40 adventure and quest cards, a new map, wandering encounters, and a small storybook.
This is a wet and muddy isle filled with danger and mysteries. Also, you must take care not to be struck by lightning in the almost ever-present storms!
You can include this expansion in any of your Distant Skies campaigns, even your first. Unlike the distant locations in the game, Thunderstorm Isle is an entire map with multiple locations. Explore Thunderstorm Isle at any time by using a flight action. To leave the island, simply move to your plane and return to the game atlas.
