Summary: “You choose one of eight playable Heroes to embark on your journey towards the ancient city of Ecrya. During your travels on the Cursed Mountain you encounter dangerous beasts and some of societies most vicious rejects. Equip your Hero with weapons, armor and other items to survive. Weave powerful spells and use provisions to brave the wilds and their dangers or test your endurance during Events. Be the first Hero to reach the forgotten city, defeat the menacing boss that lurks there, and win the game. The game is turn based and each player takes on the role of the Game Master, as well as the role of the Active Player, respectively. During your turn you draw treasure cards, equip yourself with items, use trinkets or provisions and prepare for a new day of adventure. After that you enter the Travel Phase in which you will face a random encounter, drawn by the current Game Master. Here you can meet creatures to fight, locations to explore, or trigger special global Events. Your choices and die rolls determine the outcome of each encounter and they may be different each time. Resolving encounter cards will allow you to advance on the board. During fights you may play combat spells or use your unique Hero element abilities.”
