Heroes in Ravingspire
In Ravingspire, we've created nine starting Heroes, three different Heroes for each Character Type. These nine Heroes are not created equal. They are all individuals, and each has a different set of powers and equipment options they can utilize within the Tower of Ravingspire. Some of their play styles are more straightforward and easier to grasp than others, while others require more subtlety to achieve success.
The primary three Heroes are the Crimson Reaver (Reaver), Quinn ApBlanc (Rogue) and Aurora the All-Knowing (Runelord). These heroes have easy-to-utilize powers. They allow the player to draw extra cards or swap card power types during play. Playing with these straightforward Heroes may be roughly categorized as "Normal" or Dungeon mode, and are recommended for starting or solo players.
The second set of three Heroes are a bit more difficult to get a grasp on, but their abilities introduce some more flexibility and fun to the game. These are Florence Haymaker (Reaver), Darius the Blade (Rogue), and Marcus of the White Tower (Runelord). Escaping the Tower with one of these Heroes is generally more difficult, and may be considered "Hard" or Temple mode.
Finally, there are three Heroes who have an even more difficult time escaping through normal means unless the player focuses their play style on these Heroes' particular strengths. These Heroes may start the game without any slottable item cards making the first turns more dangerous, or their powers may be difficult to use against most adversaries without finesse. They are Garsom Cinderheart (Reaver), Shayla Nimblenook (Rogue), and Dawn the Righteous (Runelord). These are the "Expert" or Spire level player Heroes. Escaping the Tower with them awards the greatest bragging rights!
