AEG5861 - Mystic Vale - B&M PRE-RELEASE HAS BEGUN
Monday July 18, 2016
Centuries ago, a dying, wicked king pleaded for help from the druids of Gaia. Knowing that to heal him would only bring more suffering, the druids refused. Infuriated, with his final breath the king pronounced a dire curse that desolated the fertile Valley of Life. Empowered by the dark ruler's spiteful vengeance, the king's spell spread pestilence and blight over the land.
The Valley of Life had been sacred to Gaia, a birthplace for vital spirits of nature. These spirits cried out for aid as the land slowly withered. Worse still, some of the spirits grew corrupt and twisted by the blight. Left unchecked, this corruption would consume every spirit in the valley and irrevocably destroy a portion of Gaia's power forever!
In response, the Druid Council dispatched druids into the valley to restore its verdant beauty. Gaia, herself, blessed this mission, and the spirits welcomed the druids' much-needed assistance. Into the cursed valley the druids came, prepared to nurture and heal the land with their life-giving powers.
Although Gaia's blessings beget life, the cursed blight fights back, and careless druids may be thwarted by its evil and falter on their mission. Attempting to restore too much, too quickly can backfire and impede the road to recovery. It will require courage and also caution, as the curse can overwhelm the careless who wield too much power. To remove the desecration and return the Valley of Life to nature's bounty will require courage and caution in equal measure.
In Mystic Vale, players take on the role of druidic clans attempting to restore the cursed lands to their former vitality. The cards in your deck represent the parts of the valley that you are tasked with revitalizing, and each advancement you add to the cards represents new life and vitality you have brought to that land. Your power is tied to the land, and as more life grows in your valleys and groves, so too does your power, and with it the spirits of nature to revive the miraculous vales.
Each turn you play cards into your field to gain powerful advancements and valuable vale cards. But you must be careful not to overuse your power or it will result in decay and end your turn. During the game you will be able to build up your cards by adding powerful advancements. Crafting your cards with advancements and buying vale cards at the right time will help you bring back the most miraculous portion of the Mystic Vale to life, and to achieve victory!
