The Game Masters Memorial Fund

Imaginary Empire is supporting The Game Masters Memorial Fund, so if you'd like to pick up War Stories, Shadows of Yesterday and many other fine products in support of this great cause, donate here.

"Recently, fellow gamer, game master, and game designer Christopher J.N. Banks incurred the greatest loss that a parent should never have to experience - the loss of his 5 1/2 year old daughter, an only child. This charity drive is to raise funds to cover medical expenses and put together a proper tribute for his little Persephonee.

A Good Start

Happy New Year!  To get things off to a good start the proceeds (thus far) from White Wedding, the one-off scenario of Christmas-themed survival horror, have been donated to UNICEF to help children in need.  Thanks to your generosity, we've been able to fund a literacy pack which provides books and stationary and a complete set of 500 pencils for a school.

Thanks to everyone who has contributed thus far! Further donations will allow more contributions to children in need.

Preview: White Wedding

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:
