Codex is an real time strategy-themed, customizable card game. You build your deck as you play from a pool of cards in your "codex" (though you won't actually need to use a physical codex card binder with this Starter Set). You'll grow your economy by hiring workers, and spend the gold on summoning heroes, leveling them up, casting their spells, and building more and more powerful units.
The Whitestar Order (white) faction's Discipline spec has well-trained monks and versatile spells. The Ninjutsu spec has stealthy Ninjas with blinding speed. The Strength spec is solid as a rock and offers lots of defense.
The Vortoss Conclave (purple) faction's Past spec can rewind your opponent's progress, but some of your own units fade away over time. The Present spec is about seizing the moment. The Future spec has advanced technology, but some of it starts off in the future, and you'll have to wait for it!
