Havoc Open Beta

Watermarked PDF


Havoc is a standalone combat game for two or more players, in which each player takes the part of a dragon. It is based on the setting of Hoard, 2nd Edition.

Each dragon has "reserves" - this tracks their energy as well as their health. At the end of each round, any dragon whose reserves are empty is eliminated. The last dragon in the air wins. Note that it is possible for several dragons to be defeated in the same round, causing a draw. It is also possible to play in two teams of two (or more!) dragons per side, rather than as a free-for all. In that case, the team with the last member or members wins.


Haven, the follow-up game to Havoc will fully incorporate and expand on the Havoc rules as the combat system for a much wider campaign and island management game. This larger game will be cooperative on the whole, with one or more players taking on the role of adversary for given conflicts.

Haven will be playable as both a limited-run scoring game and as an open-ended campaign system. Haven will also introduce a wide variety of combat scenarios usable with Havoc.


Both Havoc and Haven are games that will become part of a new edition of Hoard, a role-playing game of dragons. Hoard will incorporate both of these games, while giving significantly more weight to the dragons as characters that can be personalized, created, and played.

A group playing Hoard might play their dragons from hatching into incredible levels of size and power; they will be able to trade, raid, and interact with the culture of the islands that they live on, playing from the perspectives of their characters.

A simple, quick system with a elegant design. I personally love dragons and look foreward to the future releases. [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
