Unboxing-PTG1

We are very excited! Last week we were able to get our hands on two advance copies of the upcoming 2-player starter set – PATH TO GLORY! We had them on display at the Las Vegas Open, and Bryan Steele has just finished up a Facebook Live event on our Dark Age FB page. You can check it out HERE.

We thought you’d also like a chance to look through the box in a more sedate fashion, so here it is.

Step One: The box (above) shows off the two opposing forces: St Isaac and his robots against the Ice Caste Dragyri.

Step Two: Opening the box, you’ll find the the first of the paper product, the Quick Start Rules. This set get’s you going straight away, explaining the concepts and mechanics of Dark Age in a straightforward way.

Step Three: After the Quick Start Rules, there’s the Path to Glory scen...

Before the Abandonment, Isuza Dynamics was working on a complete, automated, terra-forming package. The robots of this C.O.R.E. package were designed to follow various “build and replicate” protocols, all while seeking out bio-mass for their entropic cell batteries. Since it was switched back on, the C.O.R.E...

We’ve been excited to bring you this article since the first time we saw Rich Blondel working on his Esh. Rich spent quite a bit of time this summer working on his Prevailer collection, and earlier this month sent us these photos and words to let us know how he goes about his Prevailer painting. We hope you enjoy this little holiday treat, and we’ll see you all again next year! Now, over to Rich:

“This time I will show you my favorite faction, the Forsaken Prevailers. From early in my childhood, I have been fascinated by the European Middle Ages, and also really attracted by the stories, books and movies about post apocalyptic universes, that’s why I fell in love when I discovered the Dark Age Prevailers range...

The C.O.R.E. Update is Here!

We are very excited to present to you the second of our “Web Updates”!

The C.O.R.E. have been a popular faction in Dark Age for some time now. Over the years of intensive gaming, we realized that although we really loved the feel of the “AI nodes” provided by the robots with Alpha Programming, there were situations where canny opponents could target all the Alpha priming models first, leaving the Gamma programming robots literally on auto-pilot – the player basically became a dice-rolling meat-sack. We delved into some other game mechanics to find the solution. Borrowing the idea from the St Isaac “Controller-Program” mechanic, all C.O.R.E...

Greetings, fellow Samarians!

2016 has been a pretty wild and crazy ride for Dark Age. We’ve come quite a ways over this year and now stand poised to see some fantastic growth in 2017. While it hasn’t been without its hiccups, 2016 has seen us move quite a few elements forward in a very positive way. 2017 will be our year to bring it all up to speed.

Let’s jump straight into it!

Bryan Steele returns to Dark Age!

Perhaps the biggest boost for Dark Age this year was seeing Bryan Steele return to the CMON team. Bryan used to work for CMON, but had been freelancing for a few years. The opportunity to jump back in on a project he is so passionate about was one he certainly wasn’t able to pass up...

It is always wonderful to hear tales of enthusiastic communities around the globe putting together events (from demo days to campaigns to  full-blown tournaments), and it is exciting to see folks who have been championing Dark Age take that all one step further.

We’ve been talking with Gareth Anderson on and off for awhile now, and we are very pleased to be able to announce a great focal event that he is running in May 2017 – King of the Wasteland (Dark Age UK Nationals)!
