Set only few years after the story of the first game, but bringing along many changes for the survivors of the original adventure -- as well as for the players -- Blackguards 2 is a turn-based RPG based on the rulebook of The Dark Eye. The game remains focused on turn-based, strategic battles with a group of scoundrels as anti-heroes. Some of the best-known Blackguards from the first game will be part of the team again -- unfortunately, their lives didn't go very well since then... Nevertheless, the fame of the defeater of the Nine Hordes seems to be everlasting. Cassia, main protagonist of Blackguards 2, is looking for them: her only goal is to rule from the Shark Throne at all costs, even if it’s only for one day. In the Blackguards she sees the fighters and the power she needs for her plans, even if they are a shadow of their former glory: Naurim became fat and lazy, but also more cunning; Zurbaran lost his self-confidence and Takate seems to have lost his killer instinct. But together, they are a force to be reckoned with as they set off on quests throughout South Aventuria in order to fulfill Cassias dream.
