Welcome to Dwarfheim – A brand new spin on the strategy genre. Players cooperate in teams of 4 to build, defend and manage a vibrant dwarven city, while under constant threat from deadly trolls and other players. In traditional strategy-games you would control every aspect of your civilization yourself. DwarfHeim changes this well known formula to give the players something truly unique, by assigning each player to different roles. Each role has different responsibilities, all of them essential for success. To claim victory the players must learn to cooperate in order to survive and defeat their enemies.
The builder is the home and hearth of any dwarven city. He makes sure the dwarves have a roof above their head, food in their bellies and ale in their cups. But that alone won’t be enough to reclaim to reclaim their ancestral home. Lesser cities must be built before the Dwarves can reach their final sanctuary.
Create your city. Build everything from simple houses to astonishing buildings. The builder must plan the development and layout of the city so tasks are easy to complete for the rest of the team
Keep track and improve your people's happiness and hunger level. Happy and well fed dwarfs results in positive effects which might be vital for your team's success
The city is always at risk from outside threats, be it trolls or the forces of the enemy. The builder must therefore build watchtowers, walls and gates in order to protect the team
As more dwarves move in to your city, you’ll find that expansion beyond the safety of the city walls might be necessary. Expand further into the map in order to secure tactical positions
The miner is the bedrock upon which the dwarven society is built. Without steel, the warriors would have no weapons. Without stone, the builders would have no foundation. Without gold, the diplomats would have no leverage. As lords of the underground, the miners provide their allies with resources gathered from the deep places of Agartha.
Use your miner workforce to carve out underground passages and chambers in the underworld for your clan. Undergrounds can be used for finding resources or tactical surprises against enemies
The underground holds riches beyond imagination. It's your task to organize an mining operation in order to find them. Bring your raw ores and minerals back to your factories for processing into useable resources for your clan
Raw goods have to be processed in factories before they can be used by the team. Build and automate your factories for maximum efficiency to increase the yield of resources
The warrior is the spearhead of the dwarven clans; sharp and deadly to anyone who dare stand in its way. Tasked with protecting their brethren, the warriors patrol both the lands and the city walls, laying waste to those who have no business there. To a warriors axe, there is no difference between a troll or a human, as long as they offer a chance to die in glorious battle
Lead your warband of ferocious dwarves into battle. Outsmart your enemies and strike them where it hurts, and when they least expect it. Claim the spoils of war when the enemies of of your team lie slain before you
Your team will be under constant threat from trolls and rival teams. The warrior will need to rally the warband to defend the city against enemy forces, as the built defenses won’t hold forever
Equip your warband with custom loadouts to suit your playstyle. Dwarven warriors are highly customizable and adaptable, being able to use a wide array of weapons and armor
The diplomat is the very essence of wit and cunning, representing the brains of dwarven society. Their silver tongues and golden coin are the main tools of their trade, and they can charm any outsider to their cause. Scheming and manipulative, the diplomat is just as likely to give you a hearty pat on the back as they are to stab you in it
The diplomats` main task is to ensure that other neutral nations remains friendly towards your team and hateful against your rivals. They achieve this by any means necessary; be it by tasks and quest, through trading or with their purse
Secure important and necessary resources through trading for your team. Use the market to trade your team's surplus resources into different resources or coins
Infiltrate your enemy team with powerful spies and assassins. Sabotage their key buildings or kill important targets, and gain a tactical advantage for your team
Explore and travel across the map. Discover important key positions like shops or resources and scout the movements of your enemies
