Objectives! – Warsenal have been hard at work.

Image converted using ifftoany

We are very excited with the new scenarios in the 2017 Master Rules book and the 2017-18 MTI document. There are a few new approaches and a very cool new size of objective for the Caravan Control scenario (3’x5′). You may have also noticed that we reworked the iconography for all of the factions and sub-factions for the Master Rules. Our graphics guy, Jeff Yu, put in a lot of work and has created some lovely icons that we are quite proud of.

While we were working on all of these things, we were talking with the guys at Warsenal. Bill and Jay and the team loved the ideas we had, and came up with a few of their own along the way. Now these ideas have been made concrete (well, acrylic and MDF) and are available for purchase by you, the dedicated Dark Age gamer!

NEW RULES

We have been diligently working away on these rules for the last year or so, running them through lots of playtesting with our teams out in the wider world. We are very happy with a lot of the central Dark Age rules as they are, but there were a few things that we needed to evolve, to adapt, or to replace. We always strive for clarity in our rules writing – aiming definitely for ‘rules as written’ over ‘rules as intended’ – and the 2017 Master Rules no doubt hits closest to that mark of any of the previous editions.

It is currently available on our site for FREE DOWNLOAD and the printed book is available in our webstore.

ADEPTICON – Crazy times!

AdeptiCon 2017 wrapped up just over a week ago, but it has taken us that long to get our heads back into some semblance of order after such a hectic event! Sooooooo many things going on, and all of them good for Dark Age. Our numbers were up across the board from last year’s event (which was a great one for us too). Path To Glory was on sale for the first time, we sold a lot of our new Faction Starter Sets, and many blister pegs were empty by there end of the show. We also had almost 100 people participate in the various events that we ran, including highlights such as the 17 people involved in one of the Dark Age “Build & Plays”, 16 players for the 750pt MTI Tournament, and 28 PEOPLE in the 500pt MTI Tournament! Many thanks to event organizers John Sawicki and Aaron Behm!

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...

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.

Organized Play – Our New OP Kits!

DA_Bludgelt

Earlier in the week, we introduced you to the ‘Bludgelt’, our new “currency” for Dark Age Organized Play. You can check out the post HERE to learn more about it.

In that post we promised to show you more about our Organized Play (or OP) kits. Well, Aaron and the lovely folks at Battle Bin are packing up our OP kits as I type this, and they’ll be delivered to us just after Gencon. Very exciting!

THE CONTENTS OF THE TWO DARK AGE OP KITS

We have two OP Kits for Dark Age – Kit #1 and Kit #2 – so that we can switch up a few things in the kits to add variety to your prizes in-store. Once we know the rate we’ll be going through the OP kits, we’ll be able to better plan more variety, but we think these are starting out pretty well.

IN EVERY KIT:

In both of the kits you will find:

Organized Play – Bludgelt!

Introducing new Organized Play kits for Dark Age!

At the CMON Expo back in May, we told everyone we were working on new Organized Play kits for Dark Age and Wrath of Kings. Well, the moment to unveil them in all their glory has almost arrived. As a teaser, however, we really wanted to show you the premier item for each of the Dark Age kits – the Bludgelt ingot. These hefty (2-2.5 oz), hand-cast, metal ingots will be for the winners for any event (tournament, campaign, league, narrative event, etc) that uses the Organized Play kits for prize support.

But really, we should let Bryan Steele, Dark Age Game Developer, tell you more about them! Take it away, Bryan.
