From the publisher's web site:
"Dragon Warriors is a fantasy role-playing game of adventure, magic, folklore, superstition and horror... The game is set in a world known as Legend, loosely based on Europe after the end of the medieval crusades. Human civilisation has spread across the world, but its links are fragile and are often broken by conflict, invasion, or reasons natural or supernatural. Man has learned something of the art of magic, though spell-casters are widely feared by normal folk. Creatures from folklore and myth roam outside the human communities, or sometimes inside them, spreading fear and ruin. And there are ancient quests and long-dormant discoveries to be unearthed by the brave, and riches and status to be gained."
"The Dragon Warriors rules are ideal for beginners or newcomers to roleplaying games, but offer depth and intricacy to old hands. They are designed to be fast-playing without sacrificing detail or immersion. The basic game contains seven adventuring Professions based on heroic archetypes: knights and barbarians stand shoulder to shoulder with sorcerers, mystics, warlocks and elementalists, while assassins skulk in the shadows."
