Is there any terra mystica story or lore about the factions or the Terra mystica world? Still don't get what exactly is going on during the game or why are the factions fighting.

Thanks

I'm not sure if there is any official story or lore except for what you find in the rulebook. I wouldn't expect to much storytelling from the Euro game even though the world and factions seem to have narrative potential.

On the other hand the factions aren't really "fighting" in this game. Mechaics-wise they even draw power from neighboring each other so it's rather race between powers to get hold of as much terrain as they can (each faction for their own reasons I guess)

Once upon a time, somebody started to write a story about a TM game, from the perspective of a character in one of the factions. Maybe somebody saved the link.

Witches are sociable Aurens who learned how to fly;
Swarmings mate with mermaids;
Giants are actually halflings who made a deal with the chaos magicians...and they are not happy about it.

Let's make some lore, hi guys I am new to the game, learning. Recommend me some guides or post either here or through message. I start to get hooked, no expansion, yet.

I was just thinking the other day, after Hollywood is done making the Settlers of Catan movie, they could do worse than move on to Terra Mystica :-)

RoyalRook, check out these links, amazing resources created by TM fans. Enjoy!

FYI, some of the basic openings for each faction are outdated, especially the Nomads and Alchemists. Auren is looking the same way (end with TE 1st+3D, SH in R3+).

Cool backgrounds!

What is going on during the game tough? They are trying to see which one is the ruling civilization of that piece of land ?

Hear, hear! It's the campaign season for Mystica. A battle of red states and blue states with a hint of purple goes round and round(Merica, baby!). Or shall we say, Terra Merica. You want money, you want infrastructures, but in order to win, you got to have the votes. That's why the Darklings always win: they got both the union workers and the born agains. Yet, in the spirit of progress, social justice and for the pursuit of happiness, it's the rights of both the giants and fakirs that we are fighting for each and every turn. Vote for the halflings! For the hard working Mericans in each everyone of you. Let's make Merica great again! Project Merica!
