The Heroes of Ollundra is a tactical miniatures game where players take control of either an individual hero or band of heroes and battle other heroes in a variety of game modes including battle royale, skirmish fights, horde play and large boss battles.
The biggest strength of the Heroes of Ollundra however is how you play it, once your heroes take to the playing field the gloves are off as players can chose to gang up or create alliances of convenience with each other to help them vanquish more powerful opponents.
This will lead to a new and refreshing hybrid of player versus player and coopperative gameplay experience where strength of arms may not always be the best way to win
Each game begins with each player picking a hero, The Heroes of Ollundra currently has a roster of 20 pinacle heroes each with their own unique set of skills and ability and an additional 15 basic characters that players can adapt and customosie to meet their individual play styles.
Once a player has selected their heroes they can choose to customise them with unique equipment and skills.
The amount of skills or equipment a character can have is indicated by their Hero modifier. The higher this score the more automatic bonus skills they can have. Though players can use the gold they make from capturing loot to buy extra equipment and abilities.
Once you character or warband is selected your ready to get into the battle. The types of battle and how you play them is entirely up to the players but some of the planned game modes include:
Battle Royal - 4 to 24 players depending on the arena size
Skirmish - Player build a warband and try to complete objectives
Horde Play - Players heroes or warbands must stand against an endless tide of enemies
Boss Battles - Heroes must team together to take on a player controlled monstrous creature.
Dungeon Play and much much more.
In addition to slaying your foes and facing down demons heroes will have the chance to win rare weapons and items by looting the bodies of the fallen or the countless chests or treasure nodes that litter the battle field.
Though be warned as other players will be able to steal your loot.
