The city of Gloomhaven was not always a bustling hub of commerce and intrigue. Hundreds of years ago, it was nothing but the ruins of a long-dead civilization. But as the humans spread across the map, making a tenuous peace with the Valraths in the south, the Inox and Vermlings of the forest, the Savvas deep in the mountains, and the Orchids and Quatryls across the ocean, plans were drawn forth to build a town on the eastern shores. It was to be a symbol of the many races working in harmony. This is the story of that endeavor.
In Founders of Gloomhaven, players will lead a race of Gloomhaven residents in an effort to be the most influential contributor to the city's construction. Through card-based action selection, players will leverage their own resources and the resources of other players to construct advanced resources and prestige buildings on a hared city board.
