This Quar’s War
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 order 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 could have unfolded differently.

Songs of Our Ancestors
Based on Flying Lead by Ganesha Games
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.
Number of Miniatures Required to Play:
5+ per player, plays best with 6 to 10 miniatures per commander. Larger games can be played with more rhyflers or by adding vehicles.
