Description

Explore new lands, battle monsters, and uncover secrets in this imaginative reinvention of the choose-your-own-path adventure game - complete with an interactive gamebook and 52 combat cards.

You've never seen anything like the City - a vast metal mechanism, hovering above the plains of the Continent, crackling with magical energy. Its ancient mechanisms once regulated the ebb and flow of arcane power; but now its clockwork is failing, wrecked by a saboteur who moves in the shadows. Can you survive a journey across a land racked by chaos to reach the City, and find a way to restore order? Draw action cards, annotate interactive maps-and carve out your own, unique path in a land of endless destinies!

o EMBARK ON A NEW TYPE OF QUEST: This innovative narrative experience brings together the thrilling story arc o­f a choose-your-own-path adventure and the exciting play style of a modern deck-builder card game.

o EXPLORE AN ORIGINAL FANTASY WORLD: The gamebook is artfully written by poet and author Corinna Keefe; and beautifully realized with full-color book and card illustrations by Paula Zorite.

o CREATE A UNIQUE PROTAGONIST: Use the bespoke character sheet to design a champion like no other. Equip powerful items and take advantage of a unique "leveling-up" system to choose new cards for your deck, developing incredible abilities.

o EXPLORE INTERACTIVE MAPS: The skillfully illustrated maps in the gamebook allow you explore new areas freely. As you discover new rumors or make significant changes to places you visit, you will annotate and rework each map.

o CALL THE SHOTS: Every time you make a decision, your journey will branch down a different path. Are you noble or morally ambiguous? Choose the quest that calls to you, for good or for ill ...

o NO DICE NEEDED: Don't place your destiny in the roll of a dice. Instead use combat cards to choose your battle.

o HOW-TO-PLAY VIDEO AND DOWLOADABLES INCLUDED: Don't like reading instructions? Follow the QR code instead to access an easy-to-follow gameplay video and handy downloadable content.

FORGE YOUR FATE WITH ENDLESS DESTINIES!
