This 20-card pack allows you to play Hero Realms as a Dwarf, Elf, Ogre, Orc, or Smallfolk. You can use any race with a generic starting deck, or combine them with any character pack. So you could play as an ogre wizard, an elven ranger, a dwarven fighter, or any one of the dozens of new race-class combinations. That means tons of options for the makeup of your party for cooperative play, and literally hundreds of possible new PVP match-ups.
Each race comes with four cards:
- An Ancestry card that shows that race’s health modifications and any special rules that apply to that race.
- An ancestral skill or ability card that starts the game in play.
- And two cards that modify your starting deck.
Every race has its own strengths and weaknesses, giving them a unique play feel while still being an even match against each other or against a standard human deck.
