Anatomy of a Card
In Runeslingers there are two distinct card types; defense cards and runespells. Each card type has several subtypes that provide more information about that card's unique attributes.
Defense cards remain in play until they are destroyed either by damage or an effect. Runespells have a single powerful effect and that are discarded in the discard phase of the turn in which they are played.
Ailments (Status Effects)
There are 6 unique that can be applied to a Runeslinger. Multiple ailments of the same type stack, increasing their effectiveness. When you begin a turn with 8 ailments, you remove those 8 ailments and lose a power.
Each player has 4 ailment areas on their field; you can have a maximum of 4 different ailment types on you at a time.
Ailments are a significant strategic element in Runeslingers and can be used to quickly alter the game state. To learn more about ailments, check out page 12 of the rulebook by clicking below.
The Power System
Your Runeslinger represents you on the field of battle; it begins the encounter in play between your equipped stance and ability.
There are 3 power loss conditions that when met, cause you to lose a power. When you lose a power, you gain 1 determination point.
Each Runeslinger begins an encounter with an equipped stance and ability. Your stance tracks your power and has a continuous effect. Your ability tracks your health and has an effect that may only be activated by spending determination points.
