UNBOXING! The Path To Glory 2-player Starter Set

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...

We have another big month for Dark Age releases!

More C.O.R.E. and Shadow Caste, nine new releases for both C.O.R.E. and the Shadow Caste. To purchase from our webstore, please click on the links in the unit names.

It is important to note that if you would like your local store to stock Dark Age (or they already do and you want to buy these releases direct from them), and they are in the U.S., please have them contact our Sales guy, John Smith, via email – [email protected]. John will be able to get them sorted. For our UK and European fans, we are still working hard to get a UK distributor. We suggest you get your local store to contact their favorite UK-based distributor so that we can show these guys that there is a growing demand in your part of the world!

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...

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...
