Xia: Legends of a Drift System is Back at The Wandering Dragon!
Xia: Legends of a Drift System
Xia: Legends of a Drift System is a 3-5 player sandbox style competitive space adventure. Each player starts as a lowly but hopeful captain of a small starship.
Players fly their ships about the system, completing a variety of missions, exploring new sectors and battling other ships. Navigating hazardous environments, players choose to mine, salvage, or trade valuable cargo. Captains vie with each other for Titles, riches, and most importantly Fame.
The most adaptive, risk taking, and creative players will excel. One captain will rise above the others, surpassing mortality by becoming Legend!
Customize: Each player begins the game by choosing and customizing a Tier 1 starship. Invest all your money in engines and be a rapid, yet fragile, explorer. Put all your credits into an uber missile and watch other players flee in terror. Get a small engine and save space and credits to invest in buying and selling cargo. Or create a well rounded ship, ready for anything. In Xia, the choice is always yours.
Adapt: The goal of Xia is to become the most famous captain. Completing missions, besting ships in combat, purchasing higher tier ships, selling Cargo Cubes and claiming Titles are all ways that players can earn Fame Points. The best pilots will adapt to their surroundings, making snap judgments and changing plans on-the-fly. If you can think on your feet, you’ll do well in Xia!
Sandbox: The real fun of Xia is that each game will be different. There is no set direction of play, players may choose to be peaceful traders, fierce pirates, workers, miners, opportunists, etc. The game board is randomly laid out and explored each time you play. Players might choose not to explore at all, creating a tiny arena for swift and deadly combat, or explore all 19 sectors and have a large play-scape to exploit. It’s up to you!

Xia: Missions and Powers (Coming Soon)
Xia: Missions and Powers is a mini-expansion for Xia: Legends of a Drift System. It includes 54 cards:
21 new ship powers, one for each existing player ship, offering players a choice each time they acquire a ship. The new powers are balanced with the existing powers, but offer greater reliability and can be used multiple times per turn.
32 new missions, with 8 missions of 4 new types: Transport, Assist, Counterfeit, and BOOM! These missions can be started more easily than most other existing missions, since they require only a sector type (e.g. Ice Asteroid) instead of a specific sector. Furthermore, these missions end at players, making them more interactive and easier to complete in the early game, when missions are often difficult.
There is also one rules/credits card that is included.
Overall, this mini-expansion offers Xia players many new permutations for ship powers, and more interactive missions.
