In Crossroads of Heroes, you play as a martial arts hero hailing from one of the five most venerated sects of Chinese Wuxia: Emei, Shaolin, Beggar, Wudang and Kunlun. You start the game as a virtuous character who seeks to gain renown and become the next Grand Master of Wulin. However, during your journey, if you employ too many evil methods, you will turn Evil Scum and must then resort to a dark path to victory!
During a player's turn, they can choose to train in ancient martial arts techniques, fight in duels, employ stratagems, search for food and items, and travel the Jianghu in hopes of gaining an edge over their rivals.
Crossroads of Heroes is a strategic game that challenges players to make decisions based on their personal links to their characters. Aside from trying to win, each player must also decide how they wish to reach that goal — by being a hero or villain.
