Welcome to the Rise of the Overlords website. Here you will find everything about the game: story, mechanics, its art, and the latest news. In short, the whole universe of Rise of the Overlords.
Rise of the Overlords (RotO) is the first game of FireScale Studios. For years, all team members have been fans of many games such as Magic: the Gathering, Warhammer, Lord of the Rings or Dungeons & Dragons and video games as Lineage II or World of Warcraft. Who doesn’t like this?
The birth of this game came from the idea of combining the funnier parts of our prefered games: trading card games or board games. Thus, this game combines TCG and deck crafting with board games and strategy, bringing the best of both worlds. On one hand, you will have the opportunity to collect all the existing cards in the game and mix them as you like to build your own deck. On the other hand, you will prove your deck and yourself, in unique and dynamic battlefields.
In this game, you will play your cards on the battlefield, which then will become pawns representing units. You can move your units to attack the enemy and his troops and defeat him. Soon you'll learn that behind this seemingly simple game system, there is a deeper strategy game, with many tactical possibilities to learn in order to defeat your opponent.
Exploit your units affinities, seek shelter from enemy archers, move your units into favorable formations, place traps and secrets and deploy your troops at key points on the battlefield. But that's not all, cast powerful spells to crush your enemies or to benefit your allies, or equip your units with dangerous weapons and armored coats and turn them into fearsome warriors. Only then you will defeat the most powerful opponents.
You need to be prepared because you will travel the world, exploring dangerous mazes and dungeons, strange lands and dark dens filled up of traps for gold and hidden treasures, that will allow you to improve your deck. But beware! Because you will have to face hordes of enemies and bosses to find them.
As you can see, there are a lot of possibilities and that translates into fun for both novice users, who will quickly learn the game basics, as well as for experienced players who will enjoy using advanced battle tactics.
