What's in The Box?
Introducing The Runeslingers
Your begin a game by choosing your Runeslinger. Your Runeslinger is the physical representation of you, the player, on the field of battle. Runeslingers have stances and abilities that only they can use, while cards of class can be mixed and matched freely. This allows you to be highly creative when developing your strategy, while ensuring each Runeslinger maintains its own unique flavor and playstyle.
Pictured above, Hera has a stance and ability equipped to her. On the left is her stance Chaotic Field, and on the right is her ability Rend. Each Runeslinger has 9 abilities and stances that can be mixed and matched to customize your Runeslinger to your liking. Stances and abilities can only ever be used by a Runeslinger of the same class type.
The Card Types
Every great card game needs tons of cool cards, and Runeslingers delivers the goods! The base version of Runeslingers has over 120 unique cards with three different card types.
Runespells are powerful incantations you sling during your play phase. Runespells have one-time effects when they are slung.
Boons protect Runeslingers from ailments. When played, boons temporarily prevent the effects of the ailment card that they are played on.
Chants are powerful spells that have lasting effects. Similar to trinkets, chants remain on your field until they are destroyed.
The Field Of Play
You and your opponent each have an identical field facing you. Everything you control in play exists on your field. Each player is supplied with a playmat to help them quickly master card placement and play. Depicted below is your field, with the Hera playmat.
The Six Ailments
There are six unique ailments in Runeslingers that can be put on a Runeslinger during an encounter. Multiple instances of the same ailment can "stack", increasing their power substantially. Ailments are a mechanic unique to Runeslingers that adds a tremendous amount of strategy to gameplay.
