About: What is the Warlord CCG?
The Warlord: Saga of the Storm CCG is one of the longest running Collectible Card Games in existance. It first set was published by Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG) in April 2001 and it ran successfully for over six years.
In January 2008 PHOENIX Interactive GmbH acquired the full publishing rights for Warlord.
In Warlord the world of the Accordlands, the setting for AEG president John Zinsers original Dungeons & Dragons® Roleplaying Group, comes alive.
Two armies of the six warring factions in the Accordlands face each other, with a powerful Wizard, Fighter, Cleric, or Rogue leading an army of multiple characters in the innovative Rank & File mechanic. With this mechanic position is imporant - adjacent characters might give you bonuses for your attack and you need to be close enough to your enemy to rain your arrows on him.
The most basic mechanics like melee strikes, ranged strikes or saving throws all use a twenty-side dice, the d20, just as in Dungeons & Dragons®. Many powerful fantasy characters, items and actions that simulate spells and feats add to the power of your arsenal.
You win when you defeat the opponent’s Warlord.
You can play this quick-playing game of 10-20 minutes while you wait for your Roleplaying group to assemble, with friends in a local tournament or the international tournaments at GenCon Indianapolis (USA) or KoHIT (Germany) where you can meet many members of the exceptionally friendly Warlord community.
