We are excited to be working with designers Martin Wallace and Amanda Milne on a new game for 2019, a dream come true for our team. Get more details below and stay tuned for future updates.
For centuries, heroes roamed Magnu, exploring its many dungeons, avoiding armies of evil overlords and defeating dragons (for the right price). Those times are now long past, and a new breed of warrior bestrides the land, the Rock Star!
Being part of an up-and-coming rock band, you are about to embark on your first tour. Magnu is still populated by elves, dwarves, and goblins, but now they are your audience. Dungeons still exist but are just as likely to have heritage status, while dragons are a protected species. Do you have the right song to appeal to the undead, or will your gig be saved by a bunch of easy to please halflings? Will you lose another drummer in a bar fight? And why do the dwarves have to chuck things at you?
This innovative game combining 1960’s rock and roll and a world of fantasy takes the role-playing board game as we know it, to a whole new level. This 1 – 5 player game that can be played in around two to three hours creates a fast-moving, entertaining experience keeping the most jaded gamer happy for hours
Now, instead of killing dragons, you must slay audiences. Your band will be rated for its melodiousness and energy but remember, audiences have different tastes, and it’s up to you to best entertain with the right songs. Success allows you to develop new skills and the ability to take on more demanding audiences and the money made from your record sales allows you to buy better songs and devices such as the Banjo of Protection. The latter may be of use as Magnu is still not a safe land to travel around – the Moral Majority is upset, they don’t like this new-fangled ‘rock music.’
You are not restricted to just playing gigs though. You can also embark on adventures to explore dungeons and take on the few fearsome dragons left. You can even challenge the Devil to a rock-off, but beware, failure means somebody is going to Hell!
Will you have what it takes to keep your audiences entertained?
