Rise of the Occulites Blog Launch

4 01 2011

Rise of the Occulites is a setting that I have been developing for several years now.

The setting is the source of three unique games that I have been writing.

Dawn – Rise of the Occulites is the first and is a miniatures skirmish game that uses a unique card action resolution system.

Dusk – Rise of the Occulites is the second and is an abstract strategy boardgame featuring a fog of war and the card action resolution system that is optimised for the style of game.

The Time of the Occulites is the third game in the series. It is a large boardgame that depicts the struggle for power between the different factions and will feature whole armies marching to war.

The first two games are in advanced development, with miniatures being sculpted to support Dawn – Rise of the Occulites.

All Rise of the Occulites information will be posted to that blog, while the rest of my hobby activities will continue to be posted here.

Along with the games that I am developing, I am writing a full background story for the setting which will leak out through the blog, narrated by the main character Darwin who spends his time secretly learning about the Occulites and classifying them.

Please feel free to check out the blog to follow the story and get more information as its released at:
