In classic medieval fables, knights would travel the kingdom in search of dragons to slay and treasure to take. What a mean thing to do!
HOARD is a game that puts you in control of the real hero of the tales...the DRAGON!
Around you, a new kingdom of humans is threatening to put you out of your hoard and take what you have. The only way to maintain your quality of life is to make sure that kingdom doesn't succeed!
If you can steal enough gold from the kingdom, the people will be bound to pack up shop and find some easier place to settle. Attack their wagons! Raid their food carts! Burn down houses! Make them think twice about ever waking you from your peaceful, centuries-long slumber!
Of course, burning everything in sight doesn't get you as much gold as you'd like. Really, you need to let those towns and crops grow just enough to crank out out some real treasure. Then take it!
And if you get lonely, capture a fair maiden and bring her back to your hoard for conversation. Kings will pay good gold to get them back. Just watch out for those pesky knights!
