The eggs of the Fireborn, once created by the dragon Tsukuyumi, lay forgotten in the liquid mantle of the earth for millennia. With the return of their father, they also returned to the earth’s surface. The geological upheaval freed them from their exile, and the heat of the lava allowed them to hatch – now they plan to bring earth under their rule.
Long before humans, dragons were the rulers of earth. But after their father Tsukuyumi was banished, they were dealt a severe blow. The humans grew self-confident and strong, and dared to challenge the dragons. Marduk, the first knight of Babylon, slew Tiamat, the oldest of the Fireborn. Thus began an era of hunting and killing, and many dragons fell victim to knights of the Marduk. Bit by bit, the Fireborn disappeared from the face of the earth. But deep in the earth’s core, there were still a few dragon eggs, engulfed by lava, protected from the hatred of the humans. It was only a question of time until they would reach their full potential.
Newly strengthened by the return of Tsukuyami, the Fireborn are seeking revenge on their oppressors. They ravage the earth, burning it with their fire. They will only rest when nothing remains of the humans’ former reign, and they can lay their brood in the scorching earth.
The Fireborn change the game decisively, as they score victory points by destroying the homezones of their opponents and by making areas worthless. They will not be able to conquer and hold many areas, but they have the opportunity to conquer the moon and collect extra points.
The Fireborn are good for players who like direct and constant confrontation with their opponents and aim to cause maximum damage in the game.
