From PVP Geeks:
Skytear is a card-driven miniatures game inspired by MOBA videogames (like League of Legends) featuring dozens of heroes from an original fantasy universe.
Get started drafting your team of heroes with their unique skills, personalities and ultimate powers. Choose them from four asymmetric factions with unique gameplay mechanics and flavor.
Then, group up with your waves of minions on the side lanes to push toward the enemy Nexus and crumble it.
Unlike most miniatures game, Skytear does not have dice but rather Power Cards: special moves that your heroes can do anytime, even during the turn of your opponent, and make for surprising and exciting matches.
The Starter Box contains 8 unique heroes, two for each faction, allowing you to get a taste of each of the diverse play styles of Skytear. Once you find your favorite, the Faction Expansion Boxes will allow you to easily complete it, letting you specialize as much as you wish.
All miniatures come unpainted and pre-assembled, with a plastic trays to safely store and transport them to the events organized by your friendly local game store.
