Erune is a dungeon crawler in which you can choose to roleplay one of the four heroes meant to save the sacred world of Erune. Through tunnels and underground crypts, you will find treasures and fight devilish enemies.
If you ran away from orcs, skeletons and faced the sorcerer of chaos in Heroquest, then you might be the one Erune needs. If you roamed the dungeons of Tristam in search of a better gear and fight Diablo, then you might be the player Erune needs.
Erune is a modern tribute to all those classics from the ’90s, but it doesn’t forget to forge its own identity. In fact, Erune is equipped with an A.I (Artificial Intelligence) that will second the Game Master and provide the game with a whole new interactive dimension.
THE SPIRIT OF ERUNE : THE A.I THAT PLAYS WITH YOU
No more huge rulebooks, get rid of hundreds of pages to get familiar with the specificities of the game. The spirit of Erune has been developed to answer all your questions, thus allowing you to enjoy the adventure. The spirit of Erune will be a free app to download on your phone or computer.
You want to know about the major Health potion effects ? Ask The Spirit. You forgot how to use your « heroic strike » capacity? Ask the Spirit! How many HP does this huge Orc have? Well, you should know what to do now.
The Spirit of Erune can do so much more than just explaining the rules. The A.I allows a true and direct interaction between the players and the NPCs they might encounter. What will the prisoner in the dungeon reveal? Should you free him?
The A.I also takes all interactions in account in order to adapt the story, thus providing a role-playing dimension based on the first RPGs.
The heroes can take action and/or move at each turn. Depending on their gear and capacities, they roll the dice to get a maximum of skulls and shields to defeat their enemies. Step by step, they will also gather stamina that will allow them to unlock new capacities.
You can choose the hero that best matches your values and/or gaming style. Will you be a dwarf from an ancient and wise tribe? Or a stealthy elf archer? A fierce warrior maybe? Unless your lust for magic leads you to the mighty Sorcerer.
All heroes should team up and use this alliance to avert the ordeals to come.
