Dawn breaks cold and damp on the western edge of an ancient European forest as old as history itself. It's the late Middle Ages& and last night, your advance scouts stumbled upon the remains of a hastily departed Goblin camp. Sure enough, this morning their Crescent banners are silhouetted against the horizon, joined by a colorful sea of English battle pennants flying high above armored noblemen on their war mounts and legions of archers - their longbows ready. Will the forthcoming battle unfold as planned? Are your Dwarven mercenaries worth their costly wages? Is your Lore Master worthy of the challenge that awaits? If you've chosen wisely, your place in history seems assured. If not, surely your heirs will pay the ransom, won't they?

In a world that bridges history and fantasy -- BattleLore puts you in command of a vast array of miniature troops on the fantasy battlefields of Medieval Europe. BattleLore is a card-driven miniature gaming system for two players or teams. Game play takes place on a largescale hex board with armies, terrain and battle objectives defined by a series of Adventures. Medieval Adventures mimic historical battles, while Lore Adventures transport players into a multi-faceted fantasy world. Players are introduced to the BattleLore game system through historical armies of men, but those troops are quickly supplemented with mercenary armies of fierce dwarves and goblin hordes and powerful, mythical creatures. Soon players will be employing Lore Masters - powerful Wizards, Clerics, Warriors and Rogues - to lead their armies to victory on the fields of battle. BattleLore is the doorway to epic fantasy adventures!
