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

coreupdate1

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...

A 2016 Dark Age “State of the Union”

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...

Are you ready for the November Releases? We are!

Last month’s releases were quite successful – so much so we ran out of Shadow Caste Faction Starter boxes, more are coming, as soon as we receive the Spiderlings! Now, on to some more wonderful Dragyri releases. This month we have some new models for the Shadow Caste and some resculpts for the Ice Caste, Air Caste, and Fire Caste (the Sling Slaves can be used by all three).

Here’s a rundown of the releases (click on the names to take you right through to the webstore):

What? Out of Stock?

temporarilyoos

Sometimes you discover things are going a little better than you thought they were. This is one of those times.

We were not completely prepared for the number of you that would be clamoring for the new Dragyri Book and Shadow Caste Faction Starter.

We air-freighted what seemed to us to be a reasonable amount of the Dragyri Book to the Atlanta warehouse so that we could be ready for release, with the remainder of the books to be sea-freighted afterwards, arriving in plenty of time to continue supply uninterrupted. Thanks to your enthusiasm, we are now scrambling to see if we can get more books air-freighted to meet your demands.

Similarly, our Shadow Caste Faction Starters went faster than expected. We have the materials to create more, *except for* the Lesser Spiderlings...

We’ve been talking about our new Faction Starter boxes for a little while now, but we are very excited that we can finally announce their imminent release!

DARK AGE – SEPTEMBER RELEASES!

dag7015_-_kukulkani_-_ixchel

We are proud to present the September Releases for Dark Age!

First of all we have the wonderful new character for the Kukulkani – Ixchel, The Nocturnal Mother. Ixchel is the rightful leader of the Samarian crusade, but her position was usurped by quetzal when the Cult of the Moon Goddess were trapped in the ziggurat after the mysterious destruction of the engines. Ixchel and her followers have released dug their way out of their chambers and she now stands ready to complete the mission of the Kukulkani on Samaria.

You can now purchase Ixchel HERE.

dag7016_-_kukulkani_-_coatlanak

Along with Ixchel, we get to see the Coatlanak, the adolescent forms of the great feathered serpents, the Coatlai! Coatlanaks are subjected to intense behavioral training by the war priests to follow instruction, even in the heated chaos of b...

A MAP OF SAMARIA!

Map_of_Samaria_660

It has been quite a long time coming, but we now have a map for the world of Samaria!

We are currently having this map printed in poster form and we’ll be releasing it later this year, but we just couldn’t wait to show you all this excellent rendering of our rich world.

We felt the best way to show it off was to talk with the guys at Beasts of War, and have them do a little bit of lovely animation. Bryan Steele sits down, via Skype, with Justin and talks through the creation of this excellent map and the depth of the world. You can check out their interview in the BOW Weekender, linked via the graphic below.

Our thanks also go to Matt Weaver for all the hard work he put into creating this wonderful addition to the background of Samaria...
