Lo! Thy Dread Empire is a tactical roleplay game / narrative wargame where you fight The Skeleton War against The Death Cult of Capitalism!

It takes wargames in the Blanchitsu/Grimdark/28 aesthetic and fuses them with modern tabletop RPG sensibilities. The result puts you in command of sweeping, nail-biting battles where the rules and narrative work together in harmony.

The game specifications:

  • 2 Players Minimum
  • 1-2 Hours Playtime
  • Token-Based Mechanics
  • Miniatures and GM both optional

Lo! Thy Dread Empire is perfect if you would like to try a game which elevates the storytelling and tactical aspects of violent conflict, if you need a sub-system to run battles within tabletop RPGs/Storygames, or if you want to see the grimdark style powered by an undying anti-capitalist heart!

While the full version is in development after a highly successful Kickstarter campaign, you can download the first 30 pages as a Work in Progress PDF and start playing now!
