Dragon Storm

Location visible to members

Dragon Storm is a card driven role-playing game, designed by artist Susan VanCamp. In this game, players take on the roles of shapeshifters, mortals who have the blood of Dragons. Characters can shapeshift into forms such as dragons, werewolves, unicorns, pegasi, and gargoyles. These forms grant the players skills and powers beyond those of normal mortals. However, this world is ruled by Necromancers, who drain the life force of shapeshifters to power their own magic. This process creates Dragon Storms, powerful magical tempests that ravage the land, and which Necromancers blame on the evil shapeshifters. In a world set against them, the players must tread carefully to survive, and possibly free their land from the tyrannical rule of the Death Mages. *Please note, this game is closed to new players at this time.* This game is GM'ed by Rebecca Fowler.
