The Reaper Adventure Game Engine
Warlord is the first game to use the Reaper Adventure Game Engine (R.A.G.E. for short). As a master system, R.A.G.E. allows you to learn a few basic rules and then take this knowledge with you from game setting to game setting. One system for many games means that you spend less time learning and relearning rules and more time playing and painting.
Key features of R.A.G.E.
- Easy mechanics. Roll one ten-sided dice. Add or subtract modifiers. Meet or exceed a target number. All target numbers and modifiers fit on a one page quick glance sheet or are printed on the figure's Data Card.
- Fluid play. A Turn is divided into 2 Actions per Model. The order and what actions are conducted are fully in your control. Each setting will have one or two new Actions specific to its genre, but the rest of the Actions remain the same from game to game. Strategy and Tactics. You are in control of not only the rolling of dice and moving of figures, but also general force creation and preparing for the surprises of combat against other players.
- Data Cards. All information relevant to a Model's game related mechanics easily fit on a standard poker card sized Data Card. As more powerful Models are damaged, their fighting ability will degrade until they are removed from play.
- Faction or Freelance Play. All R.A.G.E. games will feature various colorful factions and armies that you can choose from. There will also be the ability to portray a Freelance force that allows you to picks and choose from all the Models in the line to custom tailor your force. Faction forces gain special powers and abilities; Freelance forces gain ultimate customization freedom.
The end result is more options and more fun for you. Alpha Strike highly recommends this game to it's customers.
