The Boarloards

Fraction

A dorsal scale of Tsukuyumi, encased in a moon splinter, fell in the bamboo forests of Korea, giving the life there an unstoppable evolutionary push. A group of wild boars rose from the mire, developed dexterous hands and high intelligence, acquired complex language and moved out to bring an end to humanity’s rule on earth.

The evolved boars tamed their underdeveloped fellows and went hunting for the last surviving humans. Driven by the desire for revenge, they were merciless. In order to make their triumph over the old species visible to all, they plundered human cities, and decorated themselves with metal artefacts of the fallen human world.

The fertile boarmother, who ranks above all others in the strict tribe hierarchy, is the symbol for the rise of the once so primitive pigs. Only the strongest and smartest boars are allowed the privilege of insemination. The boarmother’s top priority is that her family thrives.

Before the Boarlords could complete their evolutionary development, Tsukuyumi’s scale dried up, and left them as hybrid creatures. Trapped between two worlds, the Boarlords profit from both.

But secretly, they know that their path will lead them to Tsukuyumi in the end, as his life-giving energy will allow them to complete their transformation.

Gameplay

The Boarlords are great in number and tough at the same time. Their advantages include that they can generate new units at the front, and a harmless shoat can quickly become a massive Boarmaster. They also profit from area modifications, so-called Terraforming, which they can carry out round by round. Their subterranean tunnels allow them to move quickly between their area tiles, while their Strongholds remain strong defence bastions.

The Boarlords are good for players who value strength more than speed. Their strategy is to securely hold conquered areas and use their entire strength at the right time to deal out devastating damage.

Their lacking potential for destruction is balanced by their ability to conquer areas. The Boarlords aim for a longer game, where they can balance out their slow speed and build a powerful play.
