Vagante is an adventure set in a dark fantasy world filled with monsters, demons, and crooks. Despite these dangers, adventurers commonly travel these unforgiving lands questing for fame, riches, and power.
A recent rumor has it that a certain cave at the edge of the woods guards an unfathomable treasure. While a handful of intrepid adventurers have ventured into the cave already, none have returned. Undeterred by the potential danger, you set out by caravan to investigate...
Vagante features several Adventurer that you can choose from. You can choose to play as the Knight, Rogue, or Mage. The class that you choose greatly affects the way the game is played. Knights are more geared to close-quarters-combat, while mages are suited to distance fighting. Rogues on the other hand can approach combat in a variety of methods.
The designers of the game believe that the Combat in Vagante should be difficult, but fair. Enemies and Traps won't hurt you unless they look like they should. Damage-on-contact, a very commonly implemented game mechanic, is not a universal rule in Vagante. Units have attack animations, and players who are skilled enough can evade attacks!
The Magic system of Vagante is inspired by games such as Diablo & Castlevania. Players will find Scrolls, which produce a magical effect upon use before disintegrating. Reading Books on the other hand, will teach players Spells. The act of casting itself requires concentration and time. But if a mage has enough time and patience, spells are well worth the effort.
