Happy Cupboarder’s Day!


For those of us in America, we just got through celebrating one of our local holidays – Thanksgiving – and it begged the question what kinds of holidays do the cultures of Samaria celebrate? Not all of a Samarian’s life is war, conflict, and a depressing survival. They have their moments of mirth and joy as well, and many noteworthy days on their strange, somewhat malleable calendar.

By the Samarian year 518 (based upon the Prevailers’ word), there are a number of Samarian Holidays being celebrated by one culture or the next.

In the wake of an American holiday here on “ancient Terra”, we wanted to list out a few popular ones on the distant world of Attr…

A Look at the Haniel Ranger

Haniel Ranger 2017 Front

“Lock and load, girls and boys. Step where I step. They will never see us coming.”

The life of a Forsaken Haniel is not very forgiving, and often relatively short. Spending days or sometimes weeks hunting the enemy near to their territories puts the Haniels in constant danger, especially those that are ordered to stay active near Skarrd hunting grounds. More than a few Haniels have ended up in the cults’ larders because of a foolish misstep or a brave attempt on a priority target. Only a select gifted number of these deadly scouts venture deep into enemy turf, dodging enemy patrols and picking off stragglers, in order to return to New Ashkelon with invaluable information about wherever they have been. These career scouts are given a military rank and a new title – that of Haniel Ranger.

The 2017 Official Brood Beta Rules Document


The Brood have been evolving and genetically reincarnating for centuries, and the rapid escalation of Samarian conflicts in the last few decades has caused the most change in them to be sure. With the promise of a new Dark Age: Brood faction-focused book planned for later 2018, it was decided that we would give the age old Brood faction a rules-facelift before their full new release. Now, as of today, the gaming populace of Dark Age players and fans get to use these new rules officially.

Ajax-Chassis Exo-Frame


“It is a great honor to pilot such a deadly piece of our history.” –Terry Bandwidt, Ajax Pilot Recruit

Saint Joan’s search to fulfil Isaac’s final words evolved from a strange and vengeful vision quest to a segmented journey from one hidden cache of technology to another. Following outcast rumors, translated texts, and the gasped confessions of the viciously interrogated, her travelling warband uncovered thousand-year-old samples of what the United Worlds had to offer when it was still in control of Attr. Most of these items are broken, decrepit, and little more than potential research for technicians to pore over in the future, but every so often, something is unearthed that is a truly wonderful echo of the planet’s past.
