Congratulations! You’ve been born! You’re a new dragon in the world. Nowthen, all you need to do is grow up a bit and get a hoard of your own. Just be careful, the townsfolk don’t tend to like it when you chomp some of their cows… or neighbors. So you’ll have to be on the lookout for roaming “heroes” who will try and ruin your day.
In Whelps to Wyrms, players start off as newly-hatched dragon whelps. The game is a tile exploration game, with each player able to take 2-3 actions on their turn (depending on their dragon’s level). Actions include things like exploring a tile, eating livestock, razing structures, and fighting against Slayers (heroes). Each dragon also has special actions they can unlock as they level. Every round, a new Slayer and Objective is revealed. Killing off a Slayer can gain you experience and gold, as can completing Objectives. Wounds that you get in a round will heal the next, so even if another player attacks you and forces you to retreat, you’re not out of the game long. After 10 rounds, the player with the biggest hoard is the winner (as one would expect for dragons).
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. They’ve already passed their funding goal, so it’s on to stretch goals for the next 17 days.
