Dice Rolling JRPG Card Game Diceborn Heroes On KS
May 11, 2017 - 8:30am
Diceborn Heroes is a new Kickstarter project in which 1-4 players can bring a party of heroes into either a single encounter or a string of battles in a campaign. In Diceborn Heroes, players create a party from a roster of 19 different classes (more coming through Stretch Goals) and pit them against a string of monsters under a boss in the style of a classic JRPG. Players roll dice to activate abilities on their characters, and similarly the monsters draw numbers from the Attack Deck to attack. The Attack Deck acts as a clever timer to the game: when monsters attack, Attack Deck cards are drawn out, and when monsters are killed, Attack Deck cards are returned to the deck. Town actions between rounds, such as healing and leveling up, also remove Attack cards from the deck. If the Attack Deck runs out, the characters start taking damage each round. The Kickstarter campaign for Diceborn Heroes continues through May 30, and the game is expected to deliver in December 2017.
