Introduction, setup, requirements

Larian Studios is known for its excellent Divinity series, which until now has consisted of RPGs only. Tomorrow, it adds a strategy game to the mix in the form of Dragon Commander, which sees you building up armies, making decisions, acquiring cards which grant abilities, chatting to your crew, and taking control of a dragon which assists in battle, among other things.
