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.

Besides the original perk, we would like to reward the contributors if our initial funding need is met and if it raises above this limit !

Each time that we will reach a given Stretch goal, we will invest in a new goodie, most of the time exclusive to this Indiegogo project.

These Add-ons will enhance the gaming experience of the contributors and allow them to play EDEN with style !

The path finder below will show you what we are up to :

 

We made it !!! ....All the four unlocked !

Great support overnight from everybody, that's amazing :-)

Yep, we will sculpt and resin cast "Marshall" (another Convoy fighter and the last of the Indiegogo Road Warriors.), based on the original artwork below (design by Stéphane Louis)

Just like "Bastonne" and "Doc Legend", this miniature will get an "Eden" profile next year, but with a totaly different sculpt. YOUR indiegogo "Marshall" will be really unique...  !

Doc legend, Bastone and Marshall can be acessed through the perk "My Goodness" (2 miniatures pack) , or by subscribing a "Wasteland peeble" perk as an individual miniature.

Huuuge thanks for all the players around the word who have supported this campaign for over one month !.

You guys did a great job ....Our project is fully financed !

Thanks to your help the book is under press and will hit our warehouse next week, but, since this afternoon, we won't even have to knock at Mr. Banker door to ask for the money we needed to cover the remaining costs

"Doc legend" green is on allready on the workbench.

This Convoy fighter is sculpted from the original artwork below (design by Stéphane Louis)

 

Just like "Bastonne" the miniature will get an "Eden" profile next year, but with a totaly different sculpt. YOUR indiegogo "Doc legend" will be really unique... and legendary !

Both Doc legend and Bastone can be acessed through the perk "My Goodness", or the  individual miniature perk "Wasteland Peeble".

"Bastonne" (another Convoy fighter.)is based on the original artwork below (design by Stéphane Louis)

Bastonne will be available through a new perk, "Wasteland Peeble" like...

Bastonne's game profile will be available in 2013 with a different sculpt of the character: thus you Indiegogo version will be truly unique... and limited !

 

New stretch goal with a seventh goodie !

If we reach 20000€ we will sculpt and cast "Nick" (a new Convoy fighter.), based on the original artwork below (design by Stéphane Louis)

 

Nick will be included in all the aftermath and limited amount perks and can be picked as one of the goodies in the  "Apocalypse Now" and "Knight of the Apocalypse"

Nick's game profile will be available in 2013 with a different sculpt of the character: thus you Indiegogo version will be truly unique... and limited !

 

Don't think that the world of eden is an empty place, with scare bands of survivors.

Many creatures survived and evolved at the surface while the human kind waited underneath...
Some of them now help your fighters as minions or tamed warbeasts, but most of them roam the battlefield and will attack both sides.

PANTHERA  - goodie #6 

To help the players enjoying this other aspect of the optional rules of EDEN you will get an exclusive non player fighter among the goodies :

a fierce panthera crafted by Master sculptor Stéphane N'Guyen :

Bonus #4

Additionaly, all the limited amount perks are updated with ALL the unlocked goodies (and you will get them painted in the case of "Into the legend" !)

 

 

Congratulations survivor, with your friends you managed to survive your first night out of the vault !

This trial has unlocked a new goodie : "The last Stand".

A new resin scenery element, limited to this Indiegogo campaign ! 
One of the new features of "EDEN, universe and Survival rules" will developp further the use of seneries and landscape elements as optional rules : you will be able to hide, get cover, climb, set in flames, explode, jump over them etc...
