Champions of Hara

Description

Beneath the roots, way, way down through the layers of what was, past the golden stove, and even deeper than darkness…the sky opens back up. At the core of everything, in the belly of the soul, you’ll find Hara. Look to it when you are tired, scared, or hungry. Call out, and it will find you.

Champions of Hara is an adventure board game in which 1-4 players race to protect a dying world. Players will contain destructive energy by defeating monsters, closing rifts, and exploring the six different zones within Hara. In order to rise to the challenge, players will need to unlock new abilities and collect powerful items. Each session takes approximately 30 minutes per player.

In versus mode, players will compete against one another in arena style combat. The winner is offered a powerful blessing by Hara’s stewards: a single wish to shape the future. However, wishes are no simple matter. In co-op mode, players will work together to overcome the fallout from the champion’s wish, facing off against corrupted foes and solving scenario based challenges.

History

Leaf Pile Media

Ian, Walter and Zim grew up with Magic cards in one hand and Spiderman comics in the other. Since they were old enough to doodle, all three dreamt of nothing but designing games, writing stories, and building unique worlds. The team met during their freshman year at Skidmore college, and out of their inexorable friendship the world of Hara was born. In their senior year, the trio took first place in the Kenneth A. Freirich Business Plan Competition, earning the funding to get Leaf Pile Media off the ground. With a little seed money on the table, the team grew to include an incredible family of artists.They could not be happier than to have found a home with Greenbrier Games.
