Torch & Shield

Torch & Shield – Brutal Combat in the Darkness of the Ruined Dwarven Empire – The Core Rulebook

Beneath the mountains, the massive fortress-holds of the Dwarf Clans lie in ruin.

Overrun with foul beasts and other creatures of the abyss, the holds are abandoned.

Every corridor, hall and cavern holds death and opportunity in equal measure.

The gold of an empire awaits delving crews brave enough to claim it.

Keep your torches burning, your blades sharp, and your clansmen to your back – and you might just survive long enough to spend it.

Bring your own Dwarves to the fight in this miniature-agnostic game!

Can be played on any dungeon tiles, bring your own Warhammer Quest or Heroquest maps!

Tactical Combat where warrior load-out matters

PvP combat with monster interference, or team up for coop missions.

Solo play against the monsters, or an AI crew

Darkness and Light – in the light, the Dwarves have the advantage, but in the dark the monsters get the edge.

Danger in the Dark – walk around without light for too long and something bad might happen.

Dice pool and playing card system to maximize your tactical options

Beer and pretzels if you want – put down any minis and play WYSIWYG with nil planning
