Havoc is a standalone combat game for two or more players, in which eachplayer takes the part of a dragon. It is based on the setting of Hoard, 2ndEdition. To play this game, you will need:
Filled-out dragon sheets:
One for each player. Example dragons can befound at the end of this document, as well as a blank sheet for creating acustom dragon with the rules in the second part of the document. You mayalso find it handy to reference one of the example dragons while readingover the rules.
When the game rules refer to dice, they always mean regular six-sideddice. Each player will need up to a dozen dice, of at least two visiblydifferent colors.
Pencils and an eraser:
To track altitude, speed, and reserves, and check off boxes on the dragon sheets. Players wanting to preserve sheets for re-usemay wish to instead employ stacks of pennies or other counters.
Each player places their dragon record in front of them, and (whether throughtokens, dice, or pencil) puts the starting values for Altitude, Speed, andReserves in the big boxes for those. They grab pencils and dice, and they’reready to go.
How To Win
Each dragon has “reserves” - this tracks their energy as well as their health.At the end of each round, any dragon whose reserves are empty is eliminated.The last dragon in the air wins. Note that it is possible for several dragons tobe defeated in the same round, causing a draw. It is also possible to play intwo teams of two (or more!) dragons per side, rather than as a free-for all. Inthat case, the team with the last member or members wins.
Rules Of Play
Reserves, Speed, Altitude
During the rules, these three terms will come up constantly. Here’s whatthey mean:
A number indicating how much energy your dragon has left.If your dragon runs out of reserves, your dragon is eliminated at the endof that round.
A number indicating how hard it is to hurt your dragon, fromone to six. Dice must match or beat this to hurt your dragon.
A number used to decide if your dragon is able to use manyattacks; some attacks only work if altitudes are closer together, whileothers require that your dragon have a higher altitude than their target.
