New Pledge Levels
We’ve had some fans requesting more options for getting their name in the 7th edition book at lower pledge levels. Right now the $300 and $500 level tiers allow a backer to get their character’s likeness in the book ($300) or help name and design the appearance of a spaceship ($500) or hostile alien lifeform ($500), but we don’t have much below that level. So we came up with some new options that allow additional pledges to get their name or their character’s name forever integrated into the mythology of Battlelords. Want a weapon, mega-corp, or mercenary team named after you or your character? Now's your one and only chance. These pledges are limited. Take a look!
The topic for today? The ‘Nids! That’s right the Arachnids are finally in the core rules! One of the big complaints we always heard was why aren’t the big baddies of the Battlelords universe in the core rules? We have no idea. Well now they are, along with all their minions and a host of other Hostile Alien Lifeforms (HALs) courtesy of nihilistic mad genius Uncle Ernie. 7th edition will provide detailed information about the ‘Nids, their genetically engineered troops of deadly & horrific aliens, and maybe we’ll drop some clues here and there about why they’re so pissed off.
In addition to the ‘Nids, we’ll also get a selection of some Uncle Ernie’s best work. For those of you who don’t know, “Uncle Ernie” Fillberg was a genius geneticist who was ostracized by the scientific establishment (probably for good reason) and decided to take his vengeance out on the peoples of the Alliance. Driven mad by his feelings of oppression, hate, and rage, the insane nihilist formed the Anarchist Rebellion Movement (aka A.R.M.) and now sells his homicidal monstrosities to the highest bidder. Sometimes to market a new creation Ernie will just drop it on an inhabited world and let the media do his marketing for him. Sometimes he does it just for kicks. Either way, your characters will now have plenty of slimy, toothy, organic killing machines to face off against whether you’re playing law enforcement, marines, or mercenaries you’re bound to run into a care package from Uncle Ernie eventually.
Be sure to spread the word about our Kickstarter to anyone you think would enjoy playing Battlelords of the 23rd Century.
