Walking into battle is so passe. Why not, instead, head into a fracas on a giant demon-moose-thing? I’d probably go for that over walking. That’s what Maegan Cyndewin can do for the Litari forces in Runewars. She brings some magical power to the elves, having sworn vengeance against the U...

Well, civilization has collapsed again, this time because the sun exploded. Damnit, Todd. I told you to stop throwing rocks at it. Thankfully, things like a host start for your planet aren’t as necessary as you might think if you’ve got some powerful magic on your side. And the Nature War...
