From the campaign:
Welcome to The Realm, a rich and storied land entrenched in turmoil. You are a warrior, equipped with powerful weapons and magics to aid your faction in the fight for control. Each instance of Rise of the Exiled is a single battle within an overarching world conflict, and the only question is, do you have what it takes to defeat your friends and seize The City? But beware, your skill in this contest will not be determined by the roll of a die, but by the throw of a card.
The Kickstarter campaign is up and running now. It's set to go for another 30 days.
