(*- while stocks last; 50 copies available)
We love this game and want you to experience it. A series of terrific expansions have been scheduled, and with the core set – The Eiras Contract – you’re all set!
I fact, we love it so much that in the office we put together a Top 5 Reasons To Get Into Star Saga:
- It’s the spiritual successor to the perennially popular Dungeon Saga, with revised rules to make it even better! (E.g. Smoother dice matching, and Campaign rules and AI are built into the core set.)
- Play through a Campaign and level-up your mercenary with a range of unique abilities. No two play throughs will ever be the same – especially as you can play with any combination of characters from any expansion!
- Fantastic, pre-assembled miniatures and sci-fi scenery which means you can grab your copy at SALUTE and be playing that evening!
- Comprehensive solo play rules that pit you against the ominous Nexus AI: Can you survive on your own, or cooperatively?
- There are tremendous Expansions launching soon (more on this, below)
To kick off this series of expansions, there are four exciting add-ons to this game coming in the near future. Below we present some teaser details for two of them: The Terror in the Deep Expansion, and the Nameless Goliath.
The Terror in the Deep Expansion
This is a new narrative expansion containing a brace of new Mercenaries and – importantly – new adversaries. How new? Well, it’s the Nameless – and these aliens will be breaking out across the Warpath Universe this Summer.
Let’s take a look at a snippet of the backdrop to this mysterious Race and the expansion:
The once peaceful Nameless are leaving their home worlds and expanding further into GCPS space. Their distinctive ships have been spotted on abandoned trade routes before quickly disappearing into slip space. Seemingly random attacks on GCPS monitoring posts are taking place throughout the galaxy.
Now the Council has received information that a group of Nameless has settled on a planet on the edge of Corporation space, building a hi-tech biosphere deep beneath the ocean. Blaine and his team of mercenaries have been hired to find out why the Nameless are making these incursions into GCPS space, while also stealing any samples of the arcane technology used by these mysterious beings. But heading underwater, into the natural environment of the Nameless, could prove to be their most dangerous mission yet…
Contains: 2 Plastic Mercenaries, 2 Plastic Bosses, 18 Plastic Minions, Terror in the Deep Sourcebook, new Tiles, Cards and Counters. Miniatures are supplied assembled and unpainted.
As we are introducing models for a new Faction that could be used in, say, Deadzone, then it would be remiss if we didn’t take the opportunity to create something truly monstrous to go with them. Enter the Goliath:
Towering over its multitudinous cousins, the Goliath is equally capable of tearing through bulkheads or crushing power-armoured Enforcers. It is only employed as a last resort by aggressive Nameless factions, as they fear it as much as their foes do.
Contents: 1 Plastic Nameless Goliath and Two Extra Scenarios for The Terror in the Deep Expansion. Supplied assembled and unpainted
This pack compliments The Terror in the Deep Expansion perfectly as it contains not only a Nameless monstrosity, but also two scenarios to add to your play through of said expansion!
That’s us signing off on the blogs for this week – we’ll see you at Stand TH04 on Saturday!
