About

Welcome to Legion: Champions of Valdyria!

Legion is a classic 2-player style card game in which you take on the role of a powerful Champion and lead your army into battle. It merges the complex interactions of popular RPG systems with the fast paced nature of card games, all bound together within a fantasy setting full of unique challenge events and high-stakes story tournaments. Legion builds on the legacy of the rules system introduced by the old Warlord card game, forging ahead with a new modern ruleset and an exciting original setting. A variety of powerful keywords reflect the denizens of Valdyria, from the eldritch powers of the Speaker exiles to the noble idealism of the Stoneguard kingdoms. You can choose the themes that suit your playstyle best.

  • Utilize the divine Aegis tokens to better control die rolls or fuel powerful abilities.
  • Follow special multiplayer rules to allow for 4 players to share a single Core Set.
  • Choose from popular fantasy classes, such as: Fighter, Monk, Cleric, Wizard and Rogue.
  • Build a deck out of characters, events and items that support your chosen Champion.
  • Easy setup and cleanup with minimal excess of parts. Components fit in most standard compartment deck-boxes.
  • Non-randomized. All cards for the standard game are represented in the Core Set.

Legion is a card game without randomized packs. The Core Set contains 1 of each Champion (all 23) and 2 of all other cards in the game. This gives you the variety necessary to build at least 2 standard format decks at a time - enough for 2 people to play using a single box. Since a Legion deck can include 3 copies of any card, a second Core Set can be added to expand the variety of deckbuilding options for both standard and multiplayer games.

  • 1 Learn-to-Play book (the comprehensive rules can be found on our website)
  • 319 playable cards (1 of each Champion and 2 of all other cards)
  • 4 Zombie token Cards (reference text for Commands and Feats on reverse side)
  • 6 Aegis tokens
  • 6 Wound tokens
  • 3 Ability tokens
  • 1 Initiative token
  • 1 twenty-sided die

How To Play

The rules of Legion, including variant formats and any future FAQ answers, are available on our Rules page located HERE. Additionally, you can download our full Learn-to-Play PDF below or watch a full playthrough in Tabletop Simulator by Wesley Woodbury.

Backer Levels

Most of the backer levels for Legion are designed for distribution within the USA and will mainly ship via USPS Priority Mail. Though this may change in the future when Legion is completely funded, the 6 Core Set "Group Tier (International)" is the only method that can currently support international shipping.

Backers can receive a single Legion Core Set for $53 ($45 MSRP), which includes the shipping costs. For each additional Core Set in the backer level, shipping costs decrease.

Archon Tier

Joining the Archon System as a special high level backer gives a rare opportunity to mold the world of Valdyria to your will. This tier brings an opportunity to design and keep a one of a kind Archon, along with any special items or events used by them. Everything from the abilities to their individually commissioned artwork will be planned by you in partnership with Egad Games.

You will also have the option to be added to a list of elite beings on the main Egad Games website, reserved for those who manage to hunt down and defeat the more elusive Archons at official events.

  • This extremely exclusive offer will be limited to only 6 backers.
  • You will be given unique insight into the design process and have an opportunity to participate in playtesting of the first planned expansion pack.

(Since Archon cards are not legal for standard tournament gameplay, you will also help us to design a playable version of your character for a future expansion pack)

Celestial Tier

Claim your place within the Celestial Plane and become an Avatar in the world of Valdyria. At this level, you will work with Egad Games to immortalize your form as one of the eternal beings guarding the mortal realm. Your likeness will be captured in an actual oil painting, made by Ray Greaves, the designer and illustrator responsible for Legion: Champions of Valdyria. The image will be used on an Archon card (designed by you) as well as a playable card (also designed by you) to be released in a future expansion pack.

  • This extremely exclusive offer will be limited to only 1 backer.
  • Like in the Archon tier, you will be given unique insight into the design process and have an opportunity to participate in playtesting of the first planned expansion pack.

Brick and Mortar Bonuses (USA Only)

We are extremely excited to work with brick and mortar game stores by offering promotional materials, tournament kits, and inclusion on our website's store locator following the launch of Legion.

Stores will also have access to the special Archon System, a series of story based raid decks that players can challenge and defeat to win prizes. (these decks will operate separately from those designed through the Archon Tier)

  • Specified tournaments will allow players to experience major story events.
  • Stores will receive retail discounts following the game's release.
  • More information can be found on our website in Archons of Valdyria and Brick & Mortar Bonus.

After backing the "Group Tier" (USA Only), brick and mortar retailers can request the following bonus product (at no additional cost) to compensate for the added overhead expenses associated with maintaining their business.

Kickstarter Fulfillment:

The Legion Core Set is already completed, tested and ready to print. As soon as it is funded, the files will be approved and sent to the manufacturer - WinGo Games. Orders will be fulfilled from largest to smallest tier size, with retailers receiving priority (special Archon and Avatar tiers will be fulfilled as soon as the custom artwork is complete).

The Legion Core Set will retail for $45 (+shipping) following the Kickstarter fulfillment. The borderless and full-art cards mentioned above may be part of event kits in the future, but this is your only opportunity to acquire them directly.
