Description Edit | History

The Scepter of Zavandor is about magic and power. Players represent young magicians who have gained possession of old magic knowledge, and with it they attempt to achieve the powerful position of archmage, symbolized by the Scepter of Zavandor.

To increase their power and influence, the young magicians enchant jewels and seek out knowledge. An auction mechanism also allows them to acquire artifacts and sentinels. Victory points are earned through active gems, artifacts, sentinels, and knowledge.

The game's rulebook includes a note thanking James Hlavaty for permission to copy the game mechanics from Outpost.

3 custom artifacts v2
Custom artifacts in german/english language. i suggest using them together with the original ones in 3-6 player games (remove one of each original card and use 1 of each of these). included are replacement cards for belt, crystal ball and magic mirror. using them is optional, but crystal ball is recommended and belt+mirror must be both or none. v2 changes: larger fonts on cards for easier reading, and one additional card
