Dragonfire

Dungeons and Dragons Meets Deckbuilder
Catalyst Game Labs is partnering with Wizards of the Coast to release Dragonfire, a Dungeons and Dragons deckbuilder game. "Players choose from several classic fantasy races, from dwarf to elf, half-orc to human, and assume one of the quintessential roles of cleric, rogue, fighter, or wizard. Equipped with weapons, spells, and magic items, players begin their adventure along the famed Sword Coast, then journey to other Forgotten Realms locales, such as Baldur’s Gate, Neverwinter, and Waterdeep, in future expansions."

Reviews
Burgle Bros. (Shut Up and Sit Down): “But when you begin to treat each session as a wider performance in your overall career, I adore the texture that’s provided by misfortune. If you were failing to save the world, it might frustrate. As it is, you’re greedy crooks who got what was coming. It’s like they always say: the best-made heists are best left unplanned.”
