What's in The Box?
Introducing The Runeslingers
Your Runeslinger is the physical representation of you, the player, on the field of battle. When a game begins (called an encounter), each player equips either a stance and ability, or two abilities to their chosen Runeslinger. Stances and abilities allow you to customize your Runeslinger for each encounter, greatly altering the strategy you choose to employ in battle. Each of the four available Runeslinger's has a class that defines which abilities and stance it can equip.
Pictured above, Hera is a Hexmancer Runeslinger. On the left, she has equipped the stance Chaotic Field, and on the right she has equipped her ability Rend. Together with a deck of 30 cards, this completes your loadout for gameplay!
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 four 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 mechanically unique to Runeslingers and add a tremendous amount of strategy to gameplay.
