The Dungeons & Dragons: Dragonshard wiki last edited by Phobos on 03/23/14 01:09PM View full history

Dragonshard is a hero-dominate RTS. It's foundation is the traditional base-building, unit-controlling RTS with a action-RPG hero thrown on top.

Choose a hero at the beginning of each level. There's a sneaky, handsome rogue, a small-framed magic elf, a squat healer-druid, and a big, dumb robot.

Your hero is the dominate damage dealer and damage sponge of the army. They have a damage causing attack, a hero-specific action, and a unit modifier, and access to items found along the way.

Each unit type has access to a set class specific actions. A class has access to actions equal to their level. A classes maximum level is determined by the number of matching class buildings in a quarter of your keep. Increasing a classes level costs experience.

The Map Split

Dragonshard splits in map into above and below ground. The area, for example, is primarily set underground with the hero & crew having a pretty traditional dungeon crawl through a mountain. One above ground ravine dips low enough to connect with the below ground dungeon, and serves as a base-building area for the level.
