Empires


Immerse yourself in a living rulebook that brings a diceless mechanic to the ancient world. Defeat you're opponents with tactical prowess and superior skill. Using large units of troops, ranging from the ancients to the Napoleonics to fantasy and from any scale, you hope to weaken the enemy so that they flee, or are wiped out.

Empires is suitable for all war-gamers, beginner or veteran; as the rules can be basic or advanced depending on how many upgrades are taken for each unit; and with over 16 unit types/variances, and more than 50 upgrades/modifiers, no battle will be the same.

As a core rulebook, players are able to take the rules and expand on them, introducing new armies or wargear at their own leisure; to share with others and/or for their own entertainment.
