Last year Imaginary Empire released an EPOCH Christmas Special scenario Silent Night, with all proceeds going to help children in need.  This year we're going to do it again.   EPOCH veteran and ENnie-Award nominated author Andrew Millar has been hard at work crafting 'White Wedding' a horror scenario which was enormously fun in playtest.  Here's a sneak peek at the trailer:

"You are cordially invited to celebrate the wedding of Rebecca Holbrook and Gunther Wald on the winter solstice this December on Holm Island, Massachusetts.

Preview: The Experiment Continues - Slaughterhouse

Here is the final preview for the forthcoming EPOCH Companion - The Experiment Continues.  Slaughterhouse is a tense teen slasher scenario by ENnie-award nominated EPOCH author Liam Jones.  Will you survive until dawn?


"Shes running.  Heart pounding, gasping for breath, as she sprints between the trees.  Its so cold. The ground is freezing beneath her feet, and twisting tree branches snag her clothes, but she doesnt slow.  She cant; this time shell escape.  Behind her, not far now, the dogs snarl and bark.  Theyre gaining.  Somewhere in the dark wood hes coming, striding without haste and following his hounds; the wicked edge of his axe glinting in the dark."

Preview: The Experiment Continues - Death On The Streets

Here's an advance look at another original scenario from the forthcoming EPOCH Companion - The Experiment Continues.  Death On The Streets allows players to take the role of gangsters during the prohibition era, and has been a long time in the crafting, by veteran GM Alasdair Sinclair:

"Prohibition was the best thing that ever happened to you. You used to be the lowest scum on the streets, now you’re welcome at every fancy place in town. Millionaires know your name, and your phone number. Gin, whisky, champagne are the lubricants of high class life: your life. You were a big man about town, and had the respect of all your friends.

Now when you drive through the streets it’s with a shotgun on your lap, and when the mists descend you don’t go out at all if you’re smart. It ain’t the law. You’ve got him beat. It’s something else. Something that ain’t no respecter of authority, and ain’t too worried by bullets and armoured glass neither.

Some say it’s the devil come for his share. You say: fuck him. This is your town."

EPOCH Commemorates Armistice Day

To commemorate Armistice Day 2014, we’re pleased to offer ‘EPOCH:Shadows of Yesterday’ for FREE until 12 November.  Shadows of Yesterday is a one-shot survival horror scenario set during World War I.

 Some wounds never fully heal; you can’t remember how long you’ve been here in the hospital, but the nurses say that you were injured during a battle. They say you’re lucky to be alive. You remember the mud and the blood, the trenches and the whistle and roar of incoming artillery… But there’s something else, something terrible and elusive that lurks at the edge of your memory. Your war may be over, but the horror has only just begun.
