Characters can Shapeshift their bodies, Summon monsters to their aid, and turn their Enemies powers against them. Set on the planet Refuge, a world of lost technology and high magic. Easy to play, Dark Refuge will appeal to gamers of all backgrounds. The Revised Edition clarifys rules, has additional monsters and gear and expanded information on the Colonies of Refuge.
