I have had my eye on the game for a couple of weeks now and I would like to get it (from amazon when it is available) but i have a question regarding the player count and set ups...

It says up to 5 which is great but what happens when it is less than 5? Are there certain roles that MUST be played or is it basically people choose their roles. Some people mentioning playing the game solo but im confused because i think they meant playing all the roles by themselves...

would it be like:

1 Player setup: Knight
2 Players setup: Knight Dragon
3 Players setup: Knight Dragon Cave
4 Players setup: Knight Dragon Cave Goblin
5 Players setup: Knight Dragon Cave Goblin Rogue

Would it be possible to play for example 3 players (Dragon, Knight and cave?) or what would happen if the cave player would like to play as the goblins? or how does the game work?

Thanks in advanced!

Every combination is possible except for cave solo.

You can play any combination of roles from 1-5 except for solo cave. The rulebook explains variant rules for all the different combinations. There will also be cards that explain the rules for variants.

For instance, normally the knight wants to kill the dragon. If there's no dragon in the game, the knight's objective changes to smashing a certain number of crystal tokens.

Wow. Much helpful.

Here's a direct link to the PnP materials, including the full rulebook. Solo rules are on page 18.

The three new roles will have solo mode. The Shadow Unicorn will provide an automated opponent for the other roles.
