From the mad Malachite throne in Rauxes to the bejeweled city of Chendl in Furyondy¸ the Flanaess is at war! In the east¸ Overking Ivid V thirsts for conquest. Vatun¸ Great God of the North¸ meanwhile unites the barbarians and Fists into a fearsome sorce. Not to be outdone¸ the dread Iuz masses humanoids and fiends in the northwest. And the Scarlet Brotherhood in the south hangs over all the Flanaess¸ pulling the strings of war like a mad puppeteer. Take command of the armies yourself and change the dark course of history! Between two and six players can battle¸ deciding the Flanaess's fate in diplomacy and war¸ and leading armies and heroes across two full-color maps. Muster your armies from over 300 counters¸ ranging from light infantry to dragons - with your favorite demi-humans and monsters as well! With over 150 cards¸ you can search for treasure or mercenaries and receive the gods' blessing (or curse) through special events. When the battle comes - the times that try the souls of all - you'll want your armies backed with the wisdom contained within the 32-page history of the actual war. The boxed set also includes an easy-to-read 8-page book of rules¸ with optional advanced rules for hard-core wargamers. The Flanaess awaits a heroic deliverer - or an oppressive overlord! Which will you be?
