Each player controls one of the four heroes available; a warrior, a dwarf, a mage and an archer. Each of the boards depicts the character's stats, strength and willpower, their special ability and the slots for money and equipment they can carry. Tokens are used to mark each of the respective stats or gear the characters obtain. Strength is used in battles to add to the value you roll on your dice (each hero has a set amount of dice) and the number of dice one can roll depends on the amount of willpower the character has. Each hero begins play with one point of strength and seven points of willpower.
The character boards are two-sided, with a female and male side. There is no difference between the genders though, apart from the visual one. There also exist cardboard figurines for both genders respectively.
