This Quar’s War – 108 pages, full color, PDF

Written by: Anthony Brown, Pete Murray and Joshua Qualtieri

A primer on the proper behavior upon the field of battle, This Quar’s War allows players to recreate the valiant deeds of their ancestors. With chapters detailing both factions present at the infamous Battle for Gate 18, players can reference color uniform and heraldry plates to ensure the accuracy of their miniatures, as well as learn about the weapons their clan carried to war.
Designed for casual play, This Quar’s War offers straightforward yet challenging rules for the veteran miniatures player. Utilizing an open orders system and double blind activation, the rules require both a strategic vision and the ability to improvise. Combat resolution takes the form of large dice pools, offering the chaos of war as well as a simple mechanic to seamlessly blend gameplay with the abstraction of combat.
Scenario-based force creation and historical organization charts eliminate the need for army lists and point values, which allows players to use what miniatures they own for missions of their creating. Seven historically accurate missions from the Battle for Gate 18 give players a place to start as well as a chance to see how history may have unfolded differently. Will the unstoppable Crusade take Gate 18, or will the bold Coftyrans hold their ancestral home? Find out as you fight This Quar’s War!

Of Spats and Pedrails – 132 pages, full color, PDF

Written By: Andrew Binsack, Pete McKenna, Steven Bellin, Anthony Brown and Joshua Qualtieri

A Rhyfler is only as Good as His Boots

It is early winter, 1772. Alwyd is still gripped by the fierce struggle between Alykinder’s Crusaders and the last Royalist holdouts. Factories produce aerocraft and tractors by the score daily, yet the ravenous appetite of The Long War refuses to be sated. There are dark clouds gathering as brave quar in the conquered lands begin to resist the stranglehold of the Crusade more openly. Will the Iron Regime weather the coming storm or will the winds of change sweep across Alwyd yet again?

An expansion for both Songs of Our Ancestors and This Quar’s War 1.0, this book provides rules for fighting both large and small actions between the might of Alykinder’s Crusade, the strength of the Coftyran Crymuster, and the elusive Partisans throughout the continent.Introducing rules for the fighting vehicles of Alwyd for both systems, Commanders can now bring the full weight of an armoured assault against their opponent. Expanding on the Baeliog rules from TQW now allows players to field squadrons of lighter tractors and even design their own. For SOA the addition of vehicles adds the tactical challenge of tractor crews that activate as one unit. This book also includes rules for the tenacious Royalists of Fidwog and the rebellious forces of Kryst. New profiles for SOA for both factions allow the addition of specialist units and characters. Rules for elite units in TQW give new options to commanders representing the best rhyflers of Alwyd. With new missions and more historical background, Of Spats and Pedrails is an invaluable resource for Commanders pursuing victory in The Long War.

Songs of Our Ancestors – 110 pages, full color, softcover

To Battle! To Glory! To Song!

The trumpet is sounding “To Arms! To Arms!”
And heartfelt the anthem prolong!
Oh, gather the Catrawd and let them go forth!
To Battle! To Glory! To Song!

The Long War has entered a new phase. Decisive battles are now won by a handful of rhyflers fighting for freedom, king, or home. Based on Flying Lead and Song of Blades and Heroes, this book provides rules for fighting smaller skirmish actions between the might of Alykinder’s Crusade, the strength of the Coftyran Crymuster, and the elusive Partisans of Elghmore.

With only five to fifteen rhyflers per side, commanders can lead several smaller conflicts within a shorter amount of time. Individual rhyflers live or die by their choices as Yawdryls and is-Caertens keep the group moving toward their objective. With the support of Cavalry and heavy weapon teams, a bold Caerten may lead his charges to victory whether they fight for their freedom, their king, or their home.

Gather your rhyflers, fight for your cause, and join your squad in singing the Songs of Our Ancestors!
