Description Edit | History

“Our Liege is in desperate hour! From what grievous cause have these accursed races arisen? Orcs, Dragons, Demons and the Dead make haste towards Monarch City. The King and Countryside of Monarch City is in need of valiant Heroes!”

Will you answer the King's call?

In the ancient Citadel of Monarch City, the King calls to arms the finest Heroes to defend against a Darkness that engulfs the land. You and your allies must embark on a journey to defend the countryside, repair the tainted lands, and defeat the four creature factions before any of them enter the City. And they approach from all sides! Fast populating Orcs! Fierce Dragons! Undead that bring Fear! And Demons! All tainting the land in their wake. There are several paths to defeat, but only one path to victory, and only the most valiant Hero will be named King's Champion.

Defenders of the Realm is a cooperative fantasy board game in which 1-4 players take a role as one of the King’s Champions (Choose from Cleric, Dwarf, Eagle Rider, Paladin, Ranger, Rogue, Sorcerer and Wizard). You, as one of the King's Heroes make use of strategy, special abilities, cooperation, card play and a little luck in Defenders of the Realm for a unique experience every adventure. But be forewarned! There is never time to rest. As each Enemy General is struck down in battle, the remaining dark forces only grow more difficult to vanquish and their march to Monarch City gets faster with each Hero victory!

8 DotR Hero Chronicle v1
This pdf file contains 4 different game logs you can use to record the end state of your games. Each log is different than the others. One provides room to record lots of stats and notes at the expense of only 2 records per page. Another provides opportunity for minimal notes but can fit 9 games on one page. I may upload the publisher file if some of you would like to tweak the file to suit your own tastes. Comments and suggestions are welcome.

3 Genius Generals - variant for playing the generals
Genius Generals is a variant for Defenders Of The Realm where the Dark Lord is taking a more active role in the war. This is represented by a Player controlling the Generals' actions in each Hero Player's night phase. The General Player have less resources than usual but always have a choice how to act. He can also let his Generals perform new special skills and order minions to move or even attack Heroes. This makes for quite a different game than usual.

6 Custom heroes Project. ( Rise of the Eastern wind! )
This is a custom heroes project that I spent some time coming up with and cos I am a computer idiot, I would like to thank chromaticdragon http://www.boardgamegeek.com/user/chromaticdragon who helped greatly with edits, ideas and all the photo shop illustrations and fonts. NOTE: This pack consists of 6 heroes. There are TWO Ronins because the armored version and normal version are meant to be front and back. Start with the normal Ronin, when her conditions are met, flip over to reveal armored ronin. These characters require certain proxy tokens. But shld work with pretty much the whole bunch of stuff you already got from the base game. The Shogun overlord well requires 4 other tokens that act as his samurai soldiers. The monk starts with a limit of 2 buddha tokens....
