The mages of Sorcado may not be in charge anymore, but that doesn’t mean they’re weak. They regularly face challenges to their might, with each mage showing that they are true masters of their chosen school. That is the story behind Dawn of the Archmage, a new fantasy miniatures skirmish game from SolarFlare Games. It’s up on Kickstarter now.
From the campaign:
Dawn of the Archmage is small unit (miniatures) skirmish game for 2 to 4 players. Each mage will represent a school of magic, summoning powerful monsters to the battlefield. Pitting their fearsome creatures in gladiatorial battle, one mage will reign victorious, ascending to the title of Archmage.
Do you have the strength and strategy to defeat your enemies? Will you become the Archmage?
Dawn of the Archmage continues the rich fantasy world of Archmage Origins. Once the rulers of Sorcado, mages have fallen from power. Challengers arrive from every corner of the land. Knighted Paladins, land-hungry Lords…? ?all seek to dethrone the mages. But mages don’t go down easily. It’s time to fight back!
Each mage uses summoning powers to bring new and dangerous creatures to the battlefield. Expending massive mystical energy, their battle grows in frenetic power as monstrous beasts fight for the mages who control them, seeking to destroy all challengers in a magic-fueled frenzy.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. It’s set to go for another 29 days.
