About

   A step-by-step board game that is based on RPG genre with a very good balance and game mechanics. Unique feature of the game is the presence of the “Master” that controls all cards. It is the “Master” who throws the Attack-dice for all the monsters.

   The aim of a game is to explore own continent, get better equipment for your hero and reach the Volcano island to fight Dragons and scour invaders from the ancestral land.

   Large playing field will not leave indifferent board game fans. Size of the World Map: 50*100cm. There are five continents in the game. Four of them are for players to choose and the fifth continent, “Volcano Island”, is for the “Master”. 

   A rich variety of weapons, armor and monsters create unique atmosphere. You get to choose what weapon to use. A sword or a mace, an axe or a spear! The same thing with armor; you choose what to wear: chain-mail, suit of armor or leather. 

   Heroes will be divided in four classes:  

  • Paladin  
  • Mercenary  
  • Knight  
  • Barbarian

Each hero is going to have 3 unique skills: 2 power skills and a magical one.

   In game you will find such opponents: Orcs, Knights, Goblins, Murderers, Elf’s, Gnomes, Robbers, Gargoyles, Thieves, Wyverns, Pirates, Trolls, Archers, Zombies, Vampires, Dragons and so on.

   The game is well randomized and hardly predictable. The game has 2 modes: Normal and Hardcore. 

   You can master this game in no time. It will take you about 10-15 minutes. The point of our board game is close friends gathering at one table, in real time.

Gameplay

   Let’s look at the game mechanics in more detail. Normal and Hardcore modes. 

   In Normal mode, use numbers only on the left side.

   For example: Your armor is 12

   and your Attack is 9

Throw the white dice – the Move Dice, you have 3

 and you make 3 steps at any direction on the Wolrd Map.

   Pay attention that there are mountains and woods in the hexagon you have reached. You decide where you want to stop. You tell the Master what you have decided. And the Master gives you a proper card of a certain terrain, depending on your decision. You take the card Acttions of Terrain and read what is written on it.

 Take the Monster card and fight with it. Attack of opponent is 8 and armor - 12.

You attack first. Throw a black dice – the Attack dice, you have 4.

Your Attack 9 + Attack dice 4 = your overall Attack is 13, the Monster has 12 Armor. You win!!! 

   If you win and there’s a Treasure Chest on the Monster’s card, it means that the Monster was a treasure keeper.

You pick up a Treasure Chest card and see that you have founded 2 items, and the Master hands them to you.

   In a chest you can find: weapon, armor, resurrection cards, teleport cards, crystals for learning skills or gold.

   When playing in Hardcore mode we use only the numbers on the right side. To understand the difference let’s repeat the situation.

   For example: Your armor is 13

 and your Attack is 8.

You are have been wandering around the island and suddenly run onto the Monster. Take the Monster card and fight with it. Attack of opponent is 9, armor - 13.

   You attack first. Throw the black dice – the Attack dice, you have 4.
   Your attack on the Weapon card is 8 + the Attack dice shows 4 = your overall Attack is 12. The Monster has 13 Armor, you have failed to kill the Monster at the first stroke since, it has 1 Armor left. 
   The Master throws the Attack dice, he have 3. The Monster's attacks 9 + 3 = 12, your armor is 13. You win automatically, because your next attack kill the opponent.
   But, in case the Master throws the Attack dice and it gets 4 or 5, or 6 the Monster’s Attack is 13 or 14 or 15. You lose, because your armor is only 13. In Normal mode, 60-70% of winning, and in the Hardcore mode, only 30-40% of winning.

   And now let’s discuss another example of the game progress in normal mode . Let’s assume that you are using the weapon - 9
and your opponent is 3 levels higher than you are. Attack of opponent 12, armor 15.
And, in spite of his level, you have a chance to win by throwing the Attack dice and getting 6. Your Attack  9 + 6 Attack dice = overall Attack 15.

   Pay attention to the wide variety of options and possibilities. I gave just one example for Hardcor modes, and two example for Normal modes. And it could have been any number from 1 to 6 in each example. Also, your opponent could be 2,3,4 levels lower or higher that you. Even when fighting with opponent who is 4 levels higher than you, you always have the chance to win, while your Opponent always has the chance to lose. In this game, your victory depends not only on the weapon and armor that you use. One throw can change a lot!
   May Lady Luck smile on you!

   

What's in the Box

 The box "Dragon Beginner"  includes 171 game cards.
The box "Dragon Warrior" includes 266 game cards.

Stretch Goal

   In case of achieving the first goal, we are going to add a complementary A3 poster with the King of Dragons and unique armor cards (which you are not going to find at the store).

   In case of achieving the second goal, we are going to update your set with unique monster cards and a stylized 54 card deck.

   In case of achieving the third goal, we are going to update your set with unique weapon cards and additional pair of dice.

   In case of achieving the fourth goal, you are getting additional resurrection cards (which are going to give your hero an ability to resuscitate at the same place) and teleport cards (an additional move for your hero).

   Plus we are thinking about adding game currency. It means not only money in the game, but also a store in the castle and a chest on a Hero card. Having this chest you are able to gather all the acquired items while traveling and when back at the castle you can sell it all at the store and improve your own equipment for the money you get. Currency consists of coins at 1, 2, 5, 10, 20.

   During the fight your attack is the combined number of points shown on the weapon card that you use and points you received throwing the attack dice. Sometimes it happens that you are coming short of 1-2 attack points to win. For situations like that we want to add 3 skills for each hero. Accordingly, if your opponent still has 1-2 armor left (after your attack), you can use one of the skills of a Hero to finish your opponent and gain the victory. 

   We will add 12 cards Ability and 12 cards Crystals studying Abilities. There will be skills of two kinds: magic and force. Skills of a hero will depend on a particular hero that you pick from a start of the game.

In developing

   The world map that you see here is not finished yet.
   We are working with Castles, Houses, Ruins, Farms and Dungeons – objects we are going to add to each continent. 
   Also, we are going to add objects to the water area, such as Destroyed Ships on reefs, Pirate ships, Whirlpools. 

   Monster cards are going to be improved as well. Each Monster will have certain background, depending on the Monster’s habitat – Meadow, Forest, Mountains, Sea or the Volcano Island.
 

About Us

   I have been carried away with board games of different genres since my early childhood. One more little hobby of mine came with my first PC, and it was playing RPG games. After a while I came up with an idea of creating a board game that would have mechanics pretty similar to RPG games. When I have discovered “Kickstarter” for myself, I understood that I have a chance to bring my idea to life. I started to work on my project immediately. 
  The most time-consuming part of the project was the development of the game mechanics, since it is the foundation of the game. By joining forces of France (our artist), Russia (me, game designer) and Your support, we want to create a board game that will be unique in many ways. 
   Our game is a French-Russian project. Our head office where the game is being created is located in Grenoble, France. We have satellite offices in Moscow, Russia where your game sets are going to be printed out.
   All the funds we raise here are going to be used for the designing and printing of game sets for you. If you decide to support us, you will receive a full game set with all additions for 20-25% less then retail price. 
   We are planning to finish the game till the end of the summer. We have decided to start the production of the game in September, so in October we are going to be ready to send packages to everyone who supported us.

   Our team consists of three people. We have putted out heart and soul into this game.
