Imaginary Empire


In the far-off future, humanity is in jeopardy. The savior will come in the form of old and slightly malfunctioning robots whose memories have been corrupted. By joining together and traveling through the Last City, these robots can learn bits about their past, as well as the means to complete their Primary Function. Along the way, though, shadowy agents are looking to stop you. You must overcome them and travel ever upwards, to the apex of the city, where all will be revealed. That's the story behind Fragment, a new sci-fi RPG that's available now.

While all our readers down in Australia are trying to not get any sun on them, for fear of instantly bursting into flames, us up in the Northern Hemisphere are having to deal with conditions slightly south of 0C. So if you're here in the frozen tundra of... uh... Atlanta, or even elsewhere, you can take your players in Death of Legends, the dark fantasy RPG, to the First Kingdoms, an icy land of magic.

You've been signed up to be part of a small team of researchers who are going to be sent to the arctic in order to do your research, isolated away from the distractions and worries of the everyday world.
What could possibly go wrong?
Nothing! That's what! I'm sure you're entirely safe.
... Just ignore that eye-twitch I've got. It's nothing. And yes, I like to carry around a fire ax, just in case of emergencies.

Sometimes your gaming group wants to get together for something a little different. Maybe you're feeling a bit burned out from your current campaign and want to do something different. Perhaps you finished your old campaign but aren't sure exactly what you want to do next. That's where one-shot, pre-made adventures can really fit in. Death of Legends is just such an item. It's a new release by Imaginary Empire and it's free. So, bonus.

The Game Publishers Guild is a group of small, independent role-playing game publishers who have banded together in order to help strengthen their overall forces in this topsy-turvy world of gaming. Initially created by Aaron Huss of Mystical Throne Entertainment, the 7 charter members (Arcanum Syndicate, Cakebread & Walton, DramaScape, Imaginary Empire, Mystical Throne Entertainment, Rogue Games and Scrying Eye Games) hope that by joining together, they can achieve greater reach through conventions and retailers, where such action had not been previously possible.

Imaginary Empire thinks it's a nice day for a White Wedding (Billy Idol agrees). They've created a new one-shot survival horror scenario for the Epoch system for this holiday season. The cost for the piece is just whatever you want to pay for it. But it is hoped you'll dig deep into your pockets for it, as all proceeds go to the UNICEF charity.

EPOCH is a survival horror RPG by Imaginary Empire. Will you make it out alive? Probably not, but hopefully someone will.



From the release:

EPOCH is a game of character-driven survival horror. The goal is to deliver a tense and scary experience in a single game session.

There will be blood… EPOCH is a game of survival horror, and much like a movie, not all of the characters can expect to survive until the final scene. Unlike many other games, EPOCH players have complete control over the fate of the characters. They may know the rules of the horror genre, but who becomes a victim, and how, is different every time.

There will be drama… EPOCH rewards interesting character play with increased chances of character survival. Players are not just the protagonists, but also act as the audience who hold the fate of all the characters in their hands. Using a simple, flexible, character creation method, players shape their back story to reveal interesting facts and surprising twists.

There will be a reckoning… EPOCH assumes a high level of character competence. Skills and abilities are streamlined, placing the focus back on the characters’ story and the personal impact of the horror. But victory is never assured; evil may prevail, and the true cost of the horror is never fully revealed until the final credits roll.
