Runebound: Sands of Al-Kalim
There is a legendary land, a place long lost. It is as much a dream as it is an actual time and place. Many have attempted to find it once more, but like a mirage in the desert, it has forever eluded them, remaining tantalizingly on the horizon. It is a harsh place of blowing sands and dangerous creatures, of beautiful cities and alien magics. It is the land of Al-Kalim!
You play a brave explorer who has found the key to this hidden realm. Now the only question that remains is whether you will forge your own entry in the "Ninety-Nine Tales of Al-Kalim," becoming an immortal hero, or whether you too will be buried in the sands of time and obscurity. Rather than drawing Encounters and Event cards that describe a set story, this expansion allows the heroes to tell their own tales! Surely they will have to face legendary challenges, but along the way, will they explore mystic locales? Or will they recruit courageous companions, tame mighty mounts, or craft powerful runes? The tale is in the heroes' hands, and only they can decide how best to fulfill their own destinies. (from the back of the box)
