Description Edit | History

Belongs to the Runebound Series.

From the Fantasy Flight Games Website:
"In the tales told in Terrinoth, there is a legendary land, a place long lost. Many have attempted to find it once more, but like a mirage in the desert, it has forever eluded them, remaining tantalizingly on the horizon. It is a harsh place of blowing sands and dangerous creatures, of beautiful cities and alien magics. It is the land of Al-Kalim!

In this expansion to the Runebound fantasy adventure board game, the players have found the key to this hidden place. Their goal is to forge their own entry in the Ninety-Nine Tales of Al-Kalim. Sands of Al-Kalim differs from most Runebound adventures in that it does not include Encounter and Event cards that describe a set story. Rather, the players tell the story! They will face legendary challenges and gain legendary rewards, including mighty mounts, forgotten runes, and magical artifacts. He who completes his tale first is immortalized in song and legend, and wins the game."

Runebound: Sands of Al-Kalim is the third Big Box Expansion for Runebound (Second Edition). It replaces some elements of the original game - including the map and playable characters - to provide a new and different gaming experience.

You must own the Runebound basic game to play this expansion.

8 See-Through Sandstorm Component
Unlike the commercial sandstorm token, this one is an outline frame that can be lifted and moved without jostling tokens and other objects on the board. The package includes the 300ppi graphic (with internal and external crop marks) to mount on a matt or card board, plus a copy of the original article "A Better Sandstorm" with construction tips.

18 Cities of Adventure: Reference Cards (Sands of Al-Kalim)
Based on Judd "Warbringer" Jensen's Cities of Adventure urban encounter tables, this package contains graphics for 11 cards: 8 for the Cities, 1 for the Prison of the Efreet, 1 Rules Card, and 1 Statistics card. There are now three methods for generating urban encounters based on Judd's original tables each time you enter one of Al-Kalim's locations. The cards are more convenient to quickly pass around as needed and small enough to keep stacked table-side during a game. NOTE: This package was submitted to, and approved by, Judd Jensen before its public release. [b]NOW ALSO AVAILABLE AS A P.O.D. DECK (NOT-FOR-PROFIT). Visit "Ye Ol' Shope" at [url=http://www.fantasticdiversions.com]Fantastic Diversions[/url] for more information and purchase points.[/b] See Also:...
