Empires: D20 Edition follows from the popular Empires: Core Rules rulebook, but with one big exception, a diced wargame mechanic; the published diced wargame from War of Life Gaming.
Immerse yourself in the living rulebook that brings diversity to the old world; fighting Greek Hoplites with Napoleonís Hussars, or Praetorian Cavalry with Templar Knights, or Elves with Dwarves.
Defeat your opponents with tactical prowess and superior skill. Using small to large units of troops, ranging from the ancients to the Napoleonics and from any scale, you hope to weaken the enemy so that they flee, or are wiped out.
Empires is suitable for all war-gamers, beginner or veteran; as the rules can be basic or advanced depending on how many upgrades are taken for each unit; and with over 16 unit types/variances, and more than 50 upgrades/modifiers, no battles will be the same.
