HI!

We've been working for over a year now to design and develop a new miniature strategy game called Chronicles. We are currently heading towards a Kickstarter to begin in 2017, and we are looking to get the word out as well as find people interested in helping us with our closed beta.

The Game

Chronicles is a fantasy, miniature strategy/war-game based in the world of Indagar. There are currently 7 described Factions, 3 of which we hope to have available for the Kickstarter. Chronicles presents a unique ruleset and play system which seeks to combine the best of larger scale games and skirmish level games into a fast playing and "less math" dynamic. Like most other war games, you will select a faction, get out your minis, build an army list, and engage in any of many scenarios, which we call battles. Models and game rules are based off of the lore of Indagar and present unique rules and interactions which provide for a very tactical game. In addition, Chronicles is a maneuver based, tactical game meaning your ability to out play your opponent is far more weighted than luck of the dice.

The OCRPG

In addition to the miniature strategy game, Chronicles also offers a companion system known as the On-line Community Role Playing Game (OCRPG). This is a first of its kind innovation which uses the concepts of a social media platform to allow players to engage off the table-top, with the intent to build the ongoing story line as well as create a tight knit community. Using seasons, players interacting in the OCRPG through art, narrative, politics, and military will drive the story line. Our faction leaders and decision makers will literally be real players!

Closed Beta
We are currently in a closed beta phase and are looking for people who would like to get involved with Chronicles early on to help us refine the game. Our closed beta is going to offer rewards including early access to models, helping to develop the game, and also potential seats on faction leadership when we head into our first season.

If you are interested in getting involved, please contact me: neil@chroniclesthegame.com

Kickstarter
We are hoping to go to Kickstarter towards the end of Q1 2017. To do that, we need to have first built up a following of players who are interested in seeing this game and the corresponding OCRPG concept move forward. So, please, join our mailing list, like us on Facebook (/chroniclesthegame), follow us on Twitter/Instagram, or subscribe to our upcoming Youtube channel. We can use this to gauge if we have enough interest in Chronicles to launch.

Are you settled on the name? Artipia games has been working on and promoting their Chronicles series for a couple years now, and it will likely go to Kickstarter (or even come to market) next year.

We're pretty established on it at the moment, but that could be problematic, hah. Thanks for the heads up, and I'll look into it.

Our Wave 1-2 Minis are now coming back from the painters, and we should be on the road in a couple of weeks visiting our local stores to try and drum up demo games and excitement. We've also picked up some new closed beta testers this week and are doing a rulebook update to match.

We are still looking for more people for closed beta. If you are interested in helping us make our game awesome, let me know. We'd love and could really use the help. We are instituting a closed beta rewards program which will involve early access to at cost models, free starter boxes, and potential access to slots in faction leadership for the OCRPG once we launch. Get in ouch if interested, and we'll ship you a closed beta pack if you want to follow through.

Meanwhile, here's our intro video. Enjoy!
