The Game of Fray
There are all powerful beings known as The Watchers that run the arena contests for unknown reasons. As a player, you take the role of one of the Watchers.
Who will be your champion, Watcher?
Choose your Champion well... for each has their own merits, their own strengths, their own weakness.
Perhaps you want to play as a wild west gunslinger; Sheriff West can be your Champion, with his 6 shooters and his grit. Don’t just debate how deadly he can be, prove it. Perhaps you would rather choose Myrina, our Amazonian priestess. In all there are 12 separate Champions included in Fray, each represented by their own amazing miniature. Two of the Champions even have a companion character that fights alongside them. Gadget the Tinkerer brings her Gatling turret, while Brint the Ranger brings their bear, Grizendl.

Fray has been designed to keep the gameplay as simple as possible, while maintaining layers of strategy which keep the game exciting, refreshing, and challenging. Movement is done in a grid system on the arena board. Each of the champions has a series of abilities and statistics; their movement value, their armor save, a unique once per game ability, a series of abilities specific to each champion, as well as a set of standard actions available to all champions.
These abilities are powered by battle dice, which are rolled every turn for each champion giving them a pool of attack, defense, and movement points that they can spend (or store for later rounds (on their abilities).
How will you spend your resources, watcher?
Will you spend resources quickly to keep the pressure on your opponent or stock pile resources across turns to land a devastating blow?
Two Styles of Play!
Play can be done in single mode, with one on one matches or in team mode, where as a player you can select a set of two or three champions, to fight against your opponent. In team mode the champions can assist each other, buff their allies, debuff the enemies, and prove their worth.
How will you play, watcher?
Will you put your faith in a single champion, or will you select a team to face the other watchers' team.
Finally, the watchers have made available to the Champions a series of powerful items that each player can use to enhance their Champion(s), reroll dice, restore health, or debuff opponents.
