Tyrants of the Underdark

Review posted November 30, 2018 by Jay Kay

This game was released in 2016 with what seemed like a big marketing campaign. For reasons beyond us it seems to have failed somewhat. One reason could be the theme of the game and the color palette, which for non D&D fans could be off putting. But you should never judge a book or a boardgame by the cover, should you?

In the four corners of the world, the sky is covered with clouds, the oceans change color, the atmosphere crackles with magic. In the dim light of an alchemical laboratory, on the snowy summit of a sacred mountain, in the depths silent of a corrupt temple, powerful mages prepare for confrontation.

They harvest, handle, and consume the essences that make up the magic of the world to create mysterious artifacts. As they bring out strange creatures from the void, they conquer terrible places of power and invoke gigantic dragons to defeat their opponents!

In Res Arcana, you'll get to do the same...
