4Ground has been working away on their own miniatures game and it’s nearly time for The Legends Of Fabled Realms to make an appearance on the tabletop.
So what do we know so far? Well, the main focus is around two of the key factions – the Eightfold Path and the Druggoi.
The Druggoi are the leaders of a band of ravenous monsters infected with a deadly virus known as the Drugoul. These beasts then fall into lesser categories including the Gluttons and the Terrors.
Each of them is a fearsome foe ready to rip you limb from limb. Conversely the Eightfold Path are a religious order of valiant warriors.
They are dedicated to the eradication of evil, especially the Druggoi. Made up of two main sections the order is split into the Initiates and the Ascended. The Ascended are those who have consumed the blood of the Druggoi and have not been corrupted. Those who pass the test have shown their strength of will.
There are other factions coming too including the Mordanburg City Watch and the Sellswords, but we’ll fill you in on them at a later date.
The Legends Of Fabled Realms is played out as a skirmish game featuring between six and thirty figures per side.
The game features mechanic known as the Momentum System which is built up between your characters. There is an active and reactive player at all times meaning that you can constantly feel like you’re in on the action.
All checks are worked out using a set of custom dice and the idea is that you will be able to resolve conflicts quickly and in a narrative fashion.
For those of you who want an extra bit of spice there’s even a Legacy Campaign System built into the game allowing your characters and henchmen to evolve over a series of encounters.
Want To Know More?
We have more information for you BUT you’re going to have to wait! Watch out for an Upcoming Weekender where we’re going to be talking to the guys from 4Ground to discuss a bit more about the game and what lies ahead.
For now enjoy some of the amazing artwork which will be gracing the pages of the rulebook and the card art for the game by Jared Blando. Much more lies ahead for this game including some themed terrain (it’s 4Ground, what did you expect?) and some very nice looking miniatures too (including Dwarves, Elves, Gnomes, Orcs, Goblins and more).
Will you be keeping an eye out for more on Fabled Realms?
