Darkson Designs have posted a teaser with some of the background for their upcoming AE: Crimson Kingdom fantasy rules.

From their announcement:

The following is taken from a lecture given at the Royal Citadel Academy:

“The language of the Serpent, called simply Serpentine, is an ancient language. Some scholars more widely read than I postulate that it was in use in the wider Void even before the Everfather brought the Giants into being as the first of his children. This boggles the mind. Evidence also suggests that the language has retained its form and phonology throughout those millennia, adding to its weight.

“Currently the Serpentine language is used by the dragons, snakemen and practitioners of the dark magical arts, for communication of all kind, as well as engraving and enchanting weapons, armour, even everyday household items. The language is rich, complex and hard to pronounce for the lipped, not to mention difficult to learn in its intricacies and endless case-endings. The modular nature of the language gives it a range of expression for all subjects, not limited to the nearly one hundred and fifty syllabic root-words and case markers.

  • Three different rule sets now?

    • Zac

      Its not out yet but eventually they will have three.

  • We have a different crew working on each set of rules. This year we are going to try to get out a book for AE-WWII and Bounty as well as get free rules for Crimson Kingdom. 😉

    • Where I can get the AE-Bounty rulebook? is it OOP? neither Maelstrom nor Wargames Vault seems to have it so I’m open to suggestions…

    • I would love to see a re-release of the AE-WW2 rules with everything combined and all the rules together so it’s a lot more clearer.

      One thing that’s infinitely frustrating about AE-WW2 is there are so many different rules everywhere and some superseed others.

      • We are working on getting everything into one book as well as adding all FAQ/ Eratta into the rules and releasing an updated version of the rules.

        We would also like to make the book easier for finding the things you are looking for in it.

  • We are in the process of getting the Darkson Shop live in the next few days. Keep an eye on TGN for the news release.

    • Also you can get it on Amazon and Barns and Noble.
