[Shade of Vengeance] Era: The Consortium Kickstarter

Since its release 2 years ago, Era: The Consortium has immersed fans in the rich, detailed worlds and society of the Consortium.

Inspired by a lifetime love of Sci-Fi, Era: The Consortium offers the chance to play any subgenre of Sci-Fi you want!

From games about a Star Wars type Resistance against an oppressive government to cyberpunk, from political machinations to space opera… the choice is yours!

We’ve produced multiple comics, an ongoing time travel campaign and an expansion entitled “The Secret War” for Era: The Consortium so far.

We’re now hoping you’ll help us take the next step, to expand this universe further – the Consortium is an amazing place, a universe with massive scope, which we love helping you to experience!

To achieve the best work we’ve done yet, we have brought together a team of industry veterans to work alongside our existing creative, writing and artistic teams. You’ll know their work from other places such as Vampire: The Masquerade, the new Conan RPG, 7th Seaand many more (as well as the other Era Games in many cases, of course!).

Together, we’ve prepared no less than 18 expansions to the Consortium universe.

(And don't worry, if we meet that many Stretch Goals, Ed has quite a few more ideas...!)

Each brings a new dimension to gameplay: from psionic abilities to rules for trading cargo, from information on sub-factions within the Resistance to an explanation of what really happened to the Orion’s crew in the Albiorix system and from memory sharing through cybernetics to the ability to construct a support system for growing forces.

We are also offering source books for each race, which will bring not only a history for that race and how they reached the Consortium, but new and unique equipment for each!

We’re going to bring you more expansions as we achieve Stretch Goals – the initial funded goal will bring you 3 expansions, but the further we get, the more expansions you receive!

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at dave.mcalister.org.uk and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at DnD5e.info.
