DUNGEON OF DRAUTHAR
Dungeon of Drauthar is a 2-4 player co-operative tabletop game. I designed the game’s packaging to resemble an ancient mythological artifact similar to Pandora’s box. The box and game pieces were crafted using the Art Institute’s of Seattle’s laser cutter.
The icons used in Dungeon of Drauthar were created in Illustrator and were lasercut onto birch plywood to create the game pieces. The dice were then engraved with the character icons then inked with acrylic ink. The card frames, rule book, and game board were created in Photoshop. The text and layout of these items were finished in InDesign.
Dungeon of Drauthar pits the players against the malevolent being Drauthar in a race to capture the remaining fragments of Drauthar’s soul. If the players collect enough pieces they prevent Drauthar from returning to power.
“The descendants of the god Amnus are bound by fate to prevent the reawakening of the malevolent entity known as Drauthar. These champions must collect the Five Fragments of Drauthar used to banish the ancient evil permanently.
The ancient being Amnus had sealed Drauthar and his minions away during the creation of Viridia, imprisoned by stone, magic and carved into the very location where the ancient evil was defeated. It is an ever-changing dungeon that prevents Drauthar’s followers from entering… or the ancient one himself from escaping.”
