Vastaryous’ Lair is a massive expansion being added to the line-up on Kickstarter for Ares Games’ Sword & Sorcery dungeon crawling board game. A monstrous hydra/dragon is hitting the tabletop with a huge model, a cadre of elite Drakonian guards and more…
Here is the tale…
“There is no peace for Heroes, no rest for living Legends.
The powerful evil menacing the Talon Coast has been defeated, but a dark shadow lingers on. Something is stirring on Black Queen Island.
A feral Orc tribe once inhabited this land, but now, something ancient and much more powerful has claimed the island as its own domain.
It is a creature made of the stuff of legends; a dragon, and more than a dragon. It is a five-headed monstrosity, whom the Orc call “Vastaryous.” Now, Vastaryous is awake, and, along with its “children,” is ready to bring death and destruction – unless the Heroes stop it.”
…and what’s better is that while you can see the render above they have actually gone ahead and put together the first sculpt for this deadly monster.
This quest will sit as a side quest during Act II and features four quests for you to fight out. You will have to battle through the Orc hordes, take on the Drakonian guard and then face off against Vastaryous himself in his lair.
They also have plans for a ‘Raid’ style scenario where ten heroes can take on the Dragon in an MMORPG style scenario. That could be a lot of fun!
