The “Name Your Favorite Side Character in Dark Age” Contest!

CoolMiniOrNot_Site_Banner_DA_logo

If there is one thing that we on the Dark Age team pride ourselves on, it is our dedication to a powerful and gripping story found in the narrative of our game. We hear from you, the fans, quite consistently that it is Dark Age’s story and lore that keeps you buying the books and collecting the factions of our game. We felt, on the dawn of some really cool new story arcs and reveals approaching in early 2018, that it was about time to test you all about just how deep you read into these myriad Tales of Samaria.

The Dark Age Chronicles Return.

DarkAgeChronicles_CoverStJohn

We’ve been posting quite a bit recently about tournaments – the March to Immortality Tournament System, the Immortals tournament itself, and so on. You might even be forgiven for thinking that competitive play is all we care about, but that is certainly not the case. We love that we have developed a very tight set of rules that can be played in a competitive setting, but we are also fans of more casual and narrative play.

A few years ago, we released a pretty sizable document called Dark Age Chronicles: Forsaken that contained special scenarios for each of the Forsaken sub-factions, along with some special “named character” versions of Forsaken unit leaders. Well, although it has taken us a little while to revisit this format in a slightly modified manner, we have returned...
