Crusaders of the Faith

“To wear the Crusader armour is a privilege; to take it off again a blessing.” Sister Amonarth did not feel pride – such selfish thoughts were beneath the devoted – and yet still she knew that this was a special day for her. She had served the Prophet faithfully through countless battles as one of […]

Michael Abdul Shahid

“The truly strong need not shout; they can destroy with the merest whisper.” The forward operating base was in disarray, the shell-shocked soldiers cowering in the rubble amongst the remains of their fallen comrades. Since the previous night, wave after wave of Cultists had been bombarding the small group of buildings that the Children of […]

Aurora, the Light of Progress

“Perfection can never truly be reached but to journey endlessly closer is a reward in itself.” Doctor Tellason stood back and admired her work, her legs shaking slightly as the adrenaline started to wane and the tiredness began to wash over her. On the operating table was the unconscious body of perhaps the most important figure […]

Biomancer

“The bleeding edge of technology cuts through the darkness and reveals the divine” Moon Ji-ho surveyed the battlefield, his visor’s HUD overlaying the scorched landscape and severed limbs with digital readouts, informing him that the Humanist Rebellion patrol squad that his Cultists had ambushed had been reduced to three remaining Echoes. To his right he […]

Shattered Earth Rules 101

We said early on in the development of Shattered Earth that there were three pillars which would define the game: the universe, the miniatures, and the rules.

Coyote Assault Troopers

“Give me soldiers who can think and I will give you victory.” Cpl Maria Perez lay flat at the top of the bluff and peered down through the early morning mist at the target building. From their vantage point, Perez and her fellow Coyotes had a clear view of the former school that UNM intel revealed […]

Acolytes of the Dragon

‘Sometimes fire must be fought with an inferno.’ The Cult of the Dragon rose to power through the blood and sacrifice of its unwavering Acolytes. Where once Lee Kyong-Min had commanded legions of adoring fans, he now led an army. These are the devoted servants of the Dragon, dedicated to spreading chaos and entropy – […]

Czernobog, the Black God

“All that awaits is oblivion.” Concept art by Marco Caradonna The Deathless arrived without warning. Creatures of nightmare, beautiful and terrifying, they fell upon us while we were still struggling to comprehend what was happening to our world.

Jormungandr, the World Serpent

“I am Jormungandr, master of the ocean and poisoner of the sky. I am the World Serpent, and you now belong to me.” Concept art by Iwo Widuliński During the Breaking of the World, where the land cracked and splintered, and the continents were reformed, the barrier between the material world and the immateria was […]
