Spellslinger Apocalypse (Five Klicks - Fantasy)

A dark corruption is spreading across the land. Emboldened by dark powers, horrific beasts rise out of forgotten ruins and start to stalk the land again. The fate of the world looks grim, but such times are when heroes are born.

This is the story of a fellowship of eight wizards who will gather an army as they stand tall against the forces of darkness in a high-magic apocalypse that is basically just Five-Klicks re-skinned with fantasy names for modern and sci-fi elements. As I record my play-sessions, you'll see how this simple conversion can make for a whole new game experience. Also: why not just play Five Leagues? Because with a simple re-skinning of Five Klicks, I can run a high-magic fantasy experience with all the emphasis on the spells (aka guns) instead of on the melee elements. Five Leagues is great, I'm just more excited about wizards blasting skeletons apart in a dungeon than I am about measured melee combat. I'll be trying some new and wild things (miniatures-wise) with this one, so stick around for the ride!

The Fellowship:

1. Sigrún Þórsdóttir - Avenging Valkyrie

Banished to Midgard and made mortal for going against the will of Odin, Sigrún Þórsdóttir leads a diverse fellowship of magic users against the dark tides that threaten to overwhelm the world.
