CROM – Planning a Kickstarter

For the last few months, you’ve read rules previews, seen sample Fate cards, and maybe even watched us play a game. We also hope that you’ve had a chance to try out CROM for yourself using our Beta Rules.

We’re very close to the point where we can announce the Kickstarter launch date. And when we do make that announcement, it will be time for us to start our countdown. So be ready!

While you’re waiting for the announcement, let’s talk a little about what you can expect in the Kickstarter itself.

Fading Suns and Ulisses Raise Money for Charity

The Fading Suns Bundle of Holding has ended, and we are happy to report that we have raised $2435.58! This money will benefit two charities: Doctors Without Borders and the Bärenherz Children’s Hospice.

Thank you so much to everyone who participated! We are excited about the future of Fading Suns, especially with such an active and supportive community behind us!


Torg Eternity Preview #9 – The Drama, Destiny, and Cosm Decks

The Drama deck was arguably the most innovative game mechanic introduced in Torg and it was a no-brainer that Torg Eternity would have it too. However, production values are held to a much higher standard now, so we decided to split the Drama deck into two: one GM facing and still called the Drama Deck, the other player facing and called the Destiny Deck. Currently there are over 90 Destiny Deck cards and around 40 Drama Deck cards. The cards are standard sized and full color. (more…)


CROM Rules – Finer Points

On the surface CROM looks very similar to other skirmish level war  games, but there are a few tricky differences that don’t stand out at first, especially after a quick read of the rules. These finer points drastically differentiate how the game actually plays from how it looks like it would play at first glance.

CROM – Campaigns and Sagas

Replayability is an important consideration for us. We want Conan: Rise of Monsters to be a game you can enjoy again and again.

Don’t worry, Conan – there’s more!

Fading Suns on Bundle of Holding

If you’re a dedicated fan of Fading Suns, you may be eagerly awaiting news about what Ulisses will be doing with its new line. But if you’re not as familiar with the game (or if you know people who aren’t), we have got a great deal for you to check out!

Fading Suns is on the newest Bundle of Holding!

CROM at the Las Vegas Open!

This coming weekend – February 3rd through 5th – is the Las Vegas Open, a tabletop gaming convention with a focus on miniatures, and the CROM team is coming out in force to run demos throughout the entire convention.

Among our attendees will be designers Tim Brown, Shane Hensley, and George Vasilakos, plus playtest/demo coordinator Darrell Hayhurst (who is responsible for all the previews you’ve been seeing for the last few months).

If you can make it Las Vegas, be sure to head to the Demo Zone to try out the game! If you can’t get to the con, make sure to watch our Facebook page on Saturday – we are hoping to set up a live feed of one of the games. (More details later this week.)


Torg Eternity Preview #7 – Nile Empire and Tharkold
