Embark on a perilous journey across a realm forsaken by the gods and devastated by an arcane cataclysm. Accompanied by a hardy crew, you are free to discover a dark fantasy world and its secrets. Trade, fight, or explore your way to success as the leader of a traveling company in Vagrus, a post-apocalyptic fantasy RPG-strategy hybrid developed by Lost Pilgrims Studio. Vagrus is a 2D Strategy-Roleplaying Game for PC, where the player takes the role of a vagrus - a sort of a caravan leader, who makes a living on a strange and dangerous dark fantasy world by leading a traveling company on all kinds of ventures.

Here is a little quick guide to the Crew Combat:

cc1

On the picture above you can see how the Crew Combat starts. Depending on the situation you may Fight, Sack or Move On.

cc2

If you decide to fight you may choose a Goal to pursue. Again the available choices are situational.

cc3

After we have chosen to fight the next step is the combat. The combat is maximum of three rounds and an aftermath. As to how long an actual fight will be depends on many factors, including your pursuit, the combat strength of both parties and the success or failure of an individual round. You may add extra combat strength to your side by adding your passengers, slaves and workers to the fight. You may select/deselect your attackers/defenders at the end of each round. Now we have selected our passengers to join the fray boosting our combat strength.

cc5

Then there is the Heal step where you may spend some time (Movement Points) and/or Resourcefulness to patch up the members of your comitatus.

cc6

And the End Result screen. Was the fight worth it? You be the judge!
