GM's Day Sale

This GM's day, give your GM the gift of freedom. It can be hard to GM survival horror games - if you want to create meaningful tension for the players then you ultimately have to be prepared to eliminate one or more of the characters.  But deciding which character is eliminated, and how, can be stressful. 

EPOCH lifts that load from the GM - characters will be eliminated during the game, but which character, and how is a result of collective decision making.

To celebrate GM's day, all EPOCH PDF products are
discounted by 30% for the next week. 

The Game Masters Memorial Fund

"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.

White Wedding Released

Imaginary Empire is pleased to release White Wedding, a one-shot Christmas Special scenario for the muti-ENnie award nominated EPOCH survival horror roleplaying game.  In the spirit of the season, White Wedding is available as a donate-what-you-can-afford product, with all proceeds being donated to help children in need through the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). 

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

In accordance with family tradition, Rebecca and Gunther will exchange vows at sunset before the black pine.

The Wald family are happy to extend their hospitality to all the wedding guests, and have arranged both accommodation and transport for the wedding. You'll be treated just like one of the family. Be sure to dress warm."

The 2013 EPOCH Christmas Special Silent Night has currently raised enough funds through donations to purchase; a Baby Survival Kit, which provides materials to assist the safe delivery of a baby into the world;  a Literacy Pack, with stationary for a child; and 15 packs of Anti-Malarial drugs to help save some of the more than a million children around the globe who lose their lives to Malaria.
