This game portrays very well a dark world with dwindling hope. I like how champions sacrifice qualities like wisdom and nobility, rather than hp or items in order to complete tasks.

If someone chooses slay a champion in the first round, doesn't it means the game automatically ends?


I like the dark medieval setting and the insidiousness of the threats. And allowing all the players to take turns narrating is a great way to keep it interesting for everyone. Nice!


I really like the idea of being a champion and having followers. Equally compelling is the mechanic of twisting a champoins boon into something sinister. It really fits with the story and adds depth.

I will make sure tonplay this one with my friends. I'll get back to you regarding how it went.

Well done :) Rated!
