Warlord Games gives us some info about the world in which Beyond the Gates of Antares takes place.
From the post:
Beyond the Gates of Antares game designer, Rick Priestley explains more about the game setting and answers the burning question – what are the Gates of Antares?
Rick: So far we’ve seen work in progress on the models for the Antares game, and I’ve talked a bit about the game system, but I’ve not made any mention of the background to the game – the fictional setting of the Antarean universe. One question I keep being asked is ‘what exactly are the Gates of Antares’ so, this week I thought I’d write a little bit about this core idea behind the game setting.
