Preview Demos of “Era: Survival – Colony” at MCM, another upcoming game! – The Oracle

Everyone loves Era: Survival. Now, that’s not just my opinion, that’s a fact. Survival has found its way into the hearts of fans and clung on with three-inch claws. This is why I’m excited to announce that Ed will be offering preview demos of Era: Survival – Colony at the upcoming MCM Comicon in London!

You’ll get a chance to test your mettle in an all new card game based on the universe of one of our most terrifying games. To survive, you’ll have to defend your colony not only from Infected but also the Sisterhood of Pyrus, the Swarm and many more!

In small teams of 1 to 4 players you’ll pit your various abilities against the denizens of this blasted landscape to defeat the dangers on Gaia and come out on top… hopefully. This game has an estimated run time of 30 to 60 minutes and a suggested player age of 8 and above.

Stop by our Stand (721, near S5) at MCM and see if you have what it takes to Survive!

Era: Survival – Colony isn’t the only game I get to talk with you about today, though…

This next RPG is one that’s been on the table for a long time. Ed has been planning a High Fantasy game for years and it looks like this project has now spread its wings and begun to fly.

Era: High Fantasy (working title) aims to offer the magic system which Ed had developed 3 years ago. At that time this project was put on the back burner and Shades of Vengeance ran full tilt with several other ambitious ideas (including Era: Survival!). It wasn’t until just recently that the High Fantasy game has gotten back on track.

At the helm of production will be Ed Jowett and Dave Harrison (some of you might remember Dave as one of our GMs during MCM May!). We’re happy to welcome Dave onto the creation team and excited to see where he takes this game.

Holding true to its High Fantasy roots, this game will include mythic beginnings, giant dungeons, swords, and of course sorcery!

It will have everything you’d expect in a major fantasy game and I’m willing to bet there will still be plenty of surprises, thanks to Ed’s worldbuilding. Everything for the game will run on the Era system which means it will be easy for players of our other games to pick up and entirely compatible with Era: The Consortium, Era: Survival, and our other titles!

That’s it for today. Stop in on Saturday when I get to discuss an exciting new addition to the Consortium Expansion offerings.
