I already transferred the full pre-order sum (this could also help to make these Scots more independent).

Dragons?



Fireballs?



A Tower of Death and Destruction?



I'm sold.

While it may seem obvious, you might want to state that the components shown are _not_ from the game.

Fortunately or unfortunately - depending on your point of view - the information available will probably be sufficient to sell out the game through pre-orders.

I think "Fragor - Dragons - Miniatures" was the only required info

Yes, one of those sneaky Lamonts added some info to the main game description here on BGG. For realsies, no dealsies:

Quote:
Players take on the role as young dragons, each trying to become the most infamous in the land. Each player has a number of Dragonscroll cards, containing tasks to increase their renown, and add to their story.

On a turn, a player draws and places a tile, which is added to the known world. These tiles may reveal enemies, such as wizards, elves and orcs; villages; or even lost royalty, optimistically eager for a lift home.

The player then flies to a new location, before raining fireballs down on any unsuspecting foes, using the flaming tower of death to determine where they land. At any point during their turn, the player also has one bonus action, chosen from one of three double-sided cards. After choosing a bonus, the card is turned over, showing a different bonus action. A player may also eat three creatures to increase their number of fireballs.

If a dragon manages to complete a task from one of their Dragonscroll cards, they may add it to their story.
The dragon with the most illustrious story at the end of the game is the winner and his tale will be recorded as Dragonscroll.

My reaction...

Oh cool, so the flaming tower of death sounds like one of those cube tower/dicetower/crashing dice wave things of sorts maybe. Or the 'big gimmick' of the game to put it in a kind of harsh term (I mean, not like its a bad thing, look at Cash n' Guns, it has foam guns that are just overblown pointy fingers).

And sweet, it's an exploration game, I've wanted to see more of those here and there, not to mention it's certainly something different from them. Certainly plenty of re playability, and the rules sound very simple.

I'm very glad I pre-ordered it when I did.
