SOLASTA: CROWN OF THE MAGISTER
French independent development studio and veteran tabletop gamer Tactical Adventures have released a new trailer for their recently released tactical RPG Solasta: Crown of the Magister. The trailer shows off the highly anticipated and community requested Dungeon Maker tool. The Dungeon Maker allows players to create and customize their own dungeons, bring them into the game to play, as well as share them with others to play through and enjoy.
Wizards of the Coast has granted Tactical Adventures a license to use the Dungeon & Dragons SRD 5.1 content and rules in Solasta: Crown of the Magister.
Solasta is a team-based tactical role-playing game where each character plays a critical role in the campaign and can be a hero. The dynamic and mysterious world features vertical elements which allow players to use their surroundings as an element of strategy. Players can position ranged characters on high vantage points or send their rogue down into shafts and caverns to scope out what lies ahead. In Solasta, light is a tool to explore the depths and hallows of dungeons or it can be used as a weapon against the creatures of the dark. If players are not careful, it will give away the party’s position to nasty creatures bent on their demise.
Solasta: Crown of the Magister will be a welcomed addition for those of us that were Dungeon & Dragons junkies from days long past. Plus having the license to use Dungeon & Dragons content and rules from the old D&D game is a pretty big coup for game house Tactical Adventures! This certainly is good news for the old D&D crowd like myself.
