Fantasy Rules! First Edition

Brief Description Battle rules for fantasy miniatures, designed for play in around an hour. Players use a point system to construct an army from one of 24 army lists. Armies are composed of units (infantry, cavalry, monsters, war machines, and "specials") and characters (generals, heroes, assassins, necromancers, clerics, shamen, and wizards). A morale clock determines both time of day and the state of the army. Certain characters can cast spells, based on their character type and their army's current pool of magic points. Rules also cover muskets, fanaticism, metamorphosing creatures, spirits, traps, the Undead, fear, flying, elite units, and challenges.
