Win by earning 20 points of glory
(by helping townfolk and defeating evil)
Roll and move - like Monopoly - except you can choose which paths to travel and make adjustments with cards and health. Certain spaces stop your movement- the castle, for example.
The full scale game requires 3.5 ft x 3.5 ft of table space, once you include characters. Goods for sale at the castle are above the board, ability, battle, and fate cards below. Secret quest and lairs are laid under spaces around the edge of the map.
The character sheet becomes a play area unto itself. Take notes, track your glory, your health, and improve your capacities. You will get goods and ability cards, but you'll also do a lot with a simple dry erase marker.
Where to go and what to do
The actual rule-set is very small. Most of what you need to adventure is in the legend, and the rest is right on the cards you draw.
Early in the game, you will pursue quests you find in towns. They will help you decide where to go and what to do. Later in the game, you will have to face more difficult challenges to continue earning glory.
Battles are the most complicated part of the game, and they are pretty simple.
Decide whether to engage, roll against your enemy monster, the winner does damage to the loser, and you decide whether to engage another round or retreat.
