Description:

Five years after the events of Cavern Tavern, where a fragile peace was brokered between The Five Realms, the High Queen Tabita Orestes has ordered a new city to be built. The city of Caveborn will be the capital of the Five Realms, a place where all the races will learn to live together in harmony, with the main purpose being to bring them closer and prevent another war.

The Queen needs to keep the alliance between the races and ensure that Caveborn is peaceful and prosperous. To that end, a Settlers Council has been formed with Berk the Town Clerk as its chairman - but Berk is getting old and needs a successor. Are you that person?

Rise to Nobility is a worker (dice) placement game set in the same fantasy world as Cavern Tavern. You each own a small piece of land in the newly built city, and your job is to rise from anonymity, make your way to the title of lord, and take over the head seat at the Stone Council.

You can achieve this by upgrading your land and increasing its value, satisfying the demands of the settlers' council, attracting and housing as many settlers as you can, accommodating their needs, finding them jobs, and helping them develop from apprentices to guild masters, thus insuring you have people in high places all around the city of Caveborn.

In this magical land of heroes, villains, and adventurers, a fragile peace has been brokered between the Five Realms. Five years have passed since the evil Lord Dranor escaped from The Cavern Tavern. The Elf Princess Tabita Orestes has taken her rightful place as the High Queen of the Five Realms and has built a new capital: the white-walled city of Caveborn.

Caveborn is her one chance to make peace work-to heal the division Lord Dranor caused and to keep the unity among the races: the Halflings, Humans, Elves, Dwarves, Green Elves, and Trobits. So Queen Tabita formed the Stone Council and invited one representative from each race to sit on the Council. …

There are many locations in the beautiful city of Caveborn where you can place your dice in order to perform actions or gain benefits.

Dice Placement

The slots on the board require you to place a die of a certain value. You can only place a die on an open slot. The die fills the slot and remains on it for the remainder of the round. Dice cannot be combined. You may place only one die per turn.

Some locations have a fixed number of available die slots no matter the number of players, while other locations have available slots based on the specific number of players. Instructions are listed on the Setup cards for each player count. …



The Chancery expansion adds a new location where Apprentices can gain income and benefits. It also adds a new way to score points with secret end-game scoring goals.

Components

  • Chancery board
  • 18 dice tiles
  • 18 commission cards
  • 36 city tokens
  • Cloth bag

Additional Setup

Place the Chancery board beside the main board. Place all 18 dice tiles in the cloth bag (along with the Building tiles). Give each player 3 City tokens.

Shuffle the Commission cards and deal 3 cards face down to each player. Each player looks at their cards and chooses 1 to keep. The chosen card should be kept secret from the other players. Return the unselected cards to the deck, shuffle the deck, and place it near the Chancery board. …
