(Translated) Publisher blurb:
Item only in French
The Arcane Lodge inspired a fascinated fear to those who believed in its existence and, to the others, a superstitious respect as careful as worried.
The Arcane Dragon
Louis XIV reigns over France threatened from all sides. In the forefront of its enemies, the Dragons of the Court of Spain now reveal the mysterious lodge of the Arcane. To thwart his plans, the kingdom opposes them a group of elite fighters with complementary origins, characters and talents, ready to sacrifice their lives: The Cardinal's Blades!
Enter the world of Pierre Pevel's bestselling novels!
Play as the new Blades of the Cardinal, in a 17th century when these elite adventurers and spies from the Kingdom of France fight against the most formidable adversaries.
In this first expansion, discover the magic of the Arcane, the art of fencing and unlock the secrets of divination. But above all, embark on a crazy ride through a great new campaign: Arcanes Funestes.
And above all, fear the dragons.
