Fantasy Flight Games Announces Legacy of Dragonholt Board Game

Fantasy Flight Games has announced a new board game set in the world of Runebound. Legacy of Dragonholt is the first in this new series which will use the Oracle system, letting players adventure all around Terrinoth. The game is a cooperative, narrative venture, and comes initially with six quests players can undertake.

From the announcement:

After the heir of Dragonholt dies under mysterious circumstances, you receive a letter from an old friend pleading for your aide. Celyse suspects foul play from the slighted exile, Kyric, who was the young royal’s rival as rightful ruler. All clues point to him as the main suspect, but there is more to this story than what’s visible on the surface. You must assemble a team of heroes to investigate this death and stop Kyric from usurping the ancient seat of Dragonholt.

Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce a new cooperative narrative game in Legacy of Dragonholt! The first game to use the Oracle system, Legacy of Dragonholt contains six quests set in the Runebound universe that take as many as six daring heroes to the outskirts of Terrinoth. Adventurers build their own stories by making choices that will lead into dark caves and dangerous forests, pit them against cunning bandits and vicious monsters, earn them wealth and fame, and hopefully bring them to foil the plot of an evil overlord.

Expect to see the game on store shelves in Q4 of this year.

    So… RPG that’s not an RPG?
    I can see this doing very well.

      Notice the mention of this being the first implementation of “the Oracle system.” So not only will there likely be expansions galore, but a “system” that sounds like it will be ported to create “un-RPGs” for other IPs that FFG owns.

    It seems to be a really in-depth version of a “choose your adventure” style game, from the discussion going on at the FFG site. That could be interesting, if the stories and choices are good.

      I love Tales of the Arabian Nights, and this appears like something similar, except more rpg-like. I’ll be keeping an eye on it.
