Eden ha hecho otra pequeña actualización en la portada del Indiegogo después de haber superado dos metas ya. En esta caso ha publicado unas nuevas fotos, y además ha actualziado algo la información que en ella viene. Aproevechamos para publicarla de nuevo entera.

About Eden - Eden - Universe & Survival Rules

( Version Française de cette page ici)

For 3 years now, the post apocalyptic skirmishes game "Eden" has been played by hundreds of enthusiasts gamers.
From the feedbacks we have got since the beginning, we can proudly say that this tactical, fast and easy gaming system is one of the best skirmishes game around...
However one problem remained :  so far we hadn't found the time to gather and formalize the background elements.
We still needed to lay on paper the history of the world that stand beyond the design of this game universe and characters
This problem is almost solved !
The creator of the Eden universe, lead art director and initiator of the project, Mohamed Ait Mehdi, (A.K.A. Mohand on the international miniature gaming scene ) has a great news for those longing to know what is behind this apocalyptic world !
With the help of many talented writers and graphic artists, Mohand brought to life a 150 pages book. You will find inside 100 pages of background and  an augmented version of the rules.
You will learn the history of this devastated world, the horrors that led to the apocalypse and how the factions played in the game emerged from the ashes of the civilisation
Beside, the rule section of the book will include :
  • clearer writing of the core rule system
  • new sceneries management rules
  • and a brand new exciting feature : the multi player mode that will allow you to fight against up to 3 other opponents !

Why do we need your help ?

Basically to cover the printing (for both English and French versions) and translation costs of the initial batch of books.
- The original english version of the rules will get an new professional translation and rewriting -
But many artists have worked on this project, and will also be rewarded by your funding.
Beyond the initial funding needs, we will also be able to release exclusive gaming material to allow the contributors to get the best of this project.
