HOW TO PLAY

You and your friends will take on the leadership of a formerly enslaved fantasy race to lead their Uprising against The Empire while also fighting the Hordes of Chaos.

To win the game every player – and also Chaos and The Empire – collect Victory Points. At the end of the game, if every player individually has more VP than The Empire and Chaos, you all win together.

At the start of your journey, you will choose 1 of 16 different heros from 8 highly asymmetric factions:

EXPLORE

a grimdark fantasy world

Discover a modular map where every hex generates a unique effect. Many hold unpleasant surprises for explorers, but some provide big bonuses too – maneuver yourself carefully.

BATTLE

Chaos and The Empire

Raise an army to fight two asymmetric enemies, who also attack each other. The Empire’s Legions march out from The Capital in the middle of the board, while from the outside, across the frozen seas, come the Hordes of Chaos…

EXPAND

and reclaim your homeland

Control hexes, build defenses and gather resources. Build Havens to provide shelter to the survivors of The Curse. Havens increase your economy and give you victory points, so protect them.

SOLVE QUESTS

to gain unique benefits

Each Chapter brings new opportunities for your Hero. Solving one of the Chapter’s Quests using your hero’s attributes can break the rules for you – or against you if you fail.
