Based on the popular CLAIM trick-taking card game, two hapless mercenaries find themselves stuck in the center of a kingdom spanning battle for the recently vacant crown!
King Ded is dead – hairless and heirless. Now war has arrived in Unstablovakia, and the kingdom’s only hope is two incompetent mercenary “ heroes ” . Rob, a delusional goblin, and Dop, his silent doppelganger sidekick, hope this war means steady work with a side of fortune and fame, hopefully without getting them killed. Journey with these two dum - dums as they scheme among the five factions that have sprung up to claim the throne. This adventure has it all: shining knights, zombie bites, and big dwarf fights, not to mention murder by pie, incredibly unpopular goblin cults, and, of course, true romance. Hey, wait, did we mention the fighting?!? Watch what happens to our lovable, lucky, yet not - so - smart mercenaries as they make their way through a game of musical thrones and see if they live happily ever ... um, see if they survive! Based on Claim, the hit fantasy card game from Deep Water Games, Claim: A Song of Ire and Vice serves up swords, sorcery, and satire in a crazy, kingdom - stealing caper. Hurry up and stake your CLAIM!
