About

Genre: Program Battle System Board Game  

# of Players: 2 - 4

 Ages: 12+ 

Playing Time: 20 – 30 mins. 

We have designed a game we believe in that is not only fun, but also offers a unique battle system which can accommodate a huge variety of themes and characters. Aside from a few tweaks and a little polish, the game is complete. It currently exists as a downloadable Print-N-Play edition, as well as a print-on-demand Game Crafter edition. We are seeking your help through Kickstarter to increase the quality of components and offer the game we want you to have. The Game Crafter edition is good but not near the quality we can achieve through Panda-GM. If we meet our goal we will be able to supply the quality game we originally intended. We’ve established some interesting stretch goals to help us reach our funding goal. Along with the addition of Support cards that can be used with any Legend, we are also offering the game's first full expansion, Be Legend - King’s Court. I hope you can see the extent of what we are offering and that there is much more yet to come. We don’t just want to sell you a game, we want to build a unique and beloved franchise. Thank you for your time and interest, and may you strive to Be the Legend within yourself.

Be Legend: Ragnarok is a program battle system based on legends, myths and other works of fiction and nonfiction. This set is based on the Norse mythology and has some of the known favorites such as Odin, Loki and of course, Thor. Also included are some other, perhaps lesser known but no less deadly, legends such as Surt the Fire Giant, Freya the Enchantress and Fenrir the Great Wolf. In all there are 8 playable and customizable characters to choose from in the base set alone, with many more planned to be released in themed future expansions. Each character in Be Legend is best represented by their Unique Ability cards. Characters like Thor, Surt and Fenrir have powerful Knockout abilities that showcase their dominating strength, making them fearsome in battle. Odin, Freya and Herja provide a more strategic style reflected in their ability to search out information, giving them an edge in the deductive elements of the game. Then you have the deceivers who bring treachery and control, such as Loki, Hel and also Freya. You may notice Freya was mentioned above as well, and this is because she can also be played as pure control when mixed with certain Basic Ability cards. Truly, all of the characters can be modified from aggressive to evasive, from chaos to control, all depending on the unique combinations of ability cards you choose to take into battle. 

Be Legend - Ragnarok isn’t just about the characters in the game. It’s about the character inside each of us.

Personally, I tend to lean more toward evasion / control. So I ask you, what game style will you adopt? Will you have fun being the character inside yourself?

Each player will start with an identical deck of basic abilities to choose from. Depending on which legend they've chosen, each player will then add two unique ability cards to their deck. Out of this deck, only six ability cards are picked for each player to use during the game, so choose wisely. All players will use their customized deck of ability cards along with their movement and direction cards to move around the board, knock out their opponents, siege enemy realms and capturing emblems.

The combat round begins with players simultaneously selecting and playing three cards face down: one of their own six ability cards, one of two reusable direction cards (clockwise or counterclockwise), and one movement card indicating the number of spaces they will move that round (1-6). Once players have locked in their choices and played their cards face down, they will all reveal their chosen ability cards. Some ability cards are faster than others, some negate, while some do really awesome, and even unexpected things. After the ability cards are revealed, players take turns revealing movement and direction cards, then moving and activating their abilities. You can land on an opponent's unoccupied realm to claim their emblem. You can also land on them, knocking them out to take an emblem of your choice from their own stash. You can use certain ability cards to extend the range of your attack, while others can give you the power to manipulate emblems, cards or even decks. Play continues in a series of these combat rounds until a victor is determined. The first player who can successfully collect and retain one emblem from each opponent wins the game.

Thank you for taking the time to look at our Kickstarter project. If you choose to support our hard work, we promise to deliver final products that we can all be proud to be a part of. Telling your friends about us is another incredibly helpful way you can contribute to this project's success. Every backer counts!  

Risks and challenges

Much of the artwork for Be Legend – Ragnarok and the King’s Court expansion has already been completed, and more is under way. The game design and play-testing is nearly complete. What remains to do is finish the remaining achievement support cards and rule book edits, and prepare all the production files for the printer. A significant time buffer has been built into the project delivery estimate to give us the proper time to finish this remaining work. Being that this is our first Kickstarter, there is a learning curve; but we have the desire and determination to make it happen. We’ve done research on existing Kickstarter campaigns, as well as previous campaigns, both successful and failed, to see where we might succeed where others may have not.
