The Path to Destiny
In our first preview of Crown of Destiny, we took a closer look at Jaes the Exile, a Mage eager to wipe out the mistakes of the past. Jaes is an adept practitioner of magic, and he gains even more power by equipping more Runes. We also experienced the incendiary attacks of the lava beetles that guard the path to the treasured artifact you seek. A lava beetle’s blasting projectiles can easily injure heroes that stay too close to each other in battle.
Our next preview explored the healing prowess of Brother Gherinn, a penitent healer seeking to wash away past crimes by vanquishing the wicked. By drawing upon his inner strength, Brother Gherinn gains the power to utterly destroy a monster who stands in his way. In this preview, we also saw the might of an enraged giant. The might of a fearsome giants makes him a deadly foe. In Crown of Destiny, the giants may have their own designs for the fate of the artifact.
Anger of a Dwarf
For your quest to alter your fate and your history to be successful, you’ll need a warrior as mighty as Corbin. Although Corbin’s quick temper has left him few friends, those who walk beside him call him fierce, loyal, and brave. When he pursues a goal, he does so with unwavering tenacity, never allowing small things like broken ribs or arrow wounds to distract him from his goals. Corbin’s companions may find themselves in battles that could normally be avoided, but Corbin’s skill with weapons is more than sufficient to bring them safely out of danger again.
A fighter to the core, Corbin is persistent enough to shake off the worst hits he takes. His hero ability helps you keep fighting even after taking damage: whenever Corbin would suffer two or more damage, that damage is reduced by one, making Corbin one of the most stalwart heroes in the game.
Corbin’s heroic feat only makes his defenses more steadfast. By triggering Corbin’s heroic feat before you roll defense dice, you may change each defense die you roll to a different result, ensuring that you always receive the maximum amount of defense when you truly need it. Between his heroic feat and his hero ability, Corbin possesses the potential to keep fighting longer than many other heroes, giving you the time you need to destroy monsters and complete your quest’s objective.
The Future Awaits
The chance to reshape your future and claim honor, riches, and glory lies before you. Whether you play as a hero with a past, or serve the wicked designs of the overlord, Crown of Destiny has the figures and quests for you.
