Fantasy Writing Contest Announced!

I am pleased to officially announce the Strategic Elite Epic Heroes Writing Contest!

As work continues on Epic Heroes: Skirmish Gaming in the Realms of Fantasy for our Brink of Battle skirmish game, we thought we'd give people the opportunity to get their writing published in a rule set!

Starting today and going through the end of May, you can submit a piece of fiction in the categories listed and have a chance at getting published in the final Epic Heroes game supplement due out in June 2013.

Whether you have been published before or not, now is a great opportunity to be part of the most robust fantasy skirmish game system in years. 

Just go to our website at http://www.brinkofbattle.com and click on the Writing Contest tab at the top left of the page.  It will tell you all you need to know about the rules and parameters of the contest!

Epic Heros will allow players to create their own worlds and settings, or use one of two 'plug & play' game settings.  It will also give you the ability to add Magic & Monsters to various Historical periods to create Weird West, Weird War 2, and Gothic Horror games.  This full color publication will be the first supplement released for the Brink of Battle system.

We look forward to reading your entries, so get started today!

Brink of Battle Fantasy Demo's at ConQuest SAC!

Well, in the words of Johnny Cash, I've been everywhere man!  We are ramping up preparations for ConQuest SAC in Sacramento California April 5th-7th.  We will be running two demo tables that will be different from the ones we did last year. You can learn more about ConQuest here http://www.conquestsac.com/

Our Historical board will be a wilderness encounter between outlaws and their lawmen pursuers in the California foothills circa 1889.  Yes, a Cowboy demo that doesn't invovle the desert!  The table will be set like one of my favorite scenes from Tombstone, where Wyatt Earp wades out into the river and shoots the living hell out of the Cowboys.

Our Main Event board will be the Ruins of Vanis-Trymno.  This is the first public viewing of the Fantasy rules and game board for Epic Heroes: Skirmish Gaming in the Realms of Fantasy.  Participants will get to play on a section of the ancient city that plays a major role in the Epic Heroes official setting.

We will be running demos all day in the Vendor area Satuday and Sunday and welcome you to come play a game! 

On Sunday morning we will run our Band of Heroes game.  BoH is a new way to play Brink of Battle where you create a single model as your hero, and you join up with other heroes to fight the forces run by the Game Master.  Our ConQuest event is called The Great Brain Robbery!

It's 1889 and people are having their brains removed by mysterious forces holed up in the foothills outside of Harperville, California.  The town posse must pursue their fell attackers into their hillside lair, and put a stop to this brain heisting once and for all!  Since diabolic forces are at work, Father Seamus O'Malley brings with him The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, California! Evil Doers beware!

That's what we have in the hopper so far.  Hope you participated in the poll I posted to the right of this entry.
