Description

How about not being the hero of a RPG, but the quest giver instead? This time you don't solve the quests on your own but you send out powerful heroes to solve the tasks for you. But choose wise to find the right group for your quest.

Who has the required skills and who will fail? The only one way to find out: the Hero Casting!

Each hero has unique skills you have to find out about. Click on the heroes to find out which hero or combination of heroes can solve your quest.

Read careful what to do and pick the right adventurers by dragging them into the slots. And sometimes there is more than one possibility.
