Jade Eye is a game for up 16 players, divided equally into four factions of up to four players.
The module is designed for fast games with slightly shorter turnarounds. So this game will run with a seven day turn around throughout with production every two turns.
Players are permitted to run multiple positions in a game, up to a maximum of four positions per player.
This is a beta game, the first time we have run this module. So please get in touch if you spot anything you think might be wrong. Also note that while we will attempt to avoid mid-game changes, they are a possibility.
Pledge deadline: 12th July ’21.
You may pledge to play 1-4 positions on your own, or you may pledge to play 4 positions with named allies.
When you pledge you should specify the number of positions you wish to play, and which factions you would prefer to play in order of preference:
- The Northern Kingdom (humans)
- Skull Heap (orcs)
- The Forest Clan (elves)
- Stone Hearts (dwarves)
If you end up getting your second choice of faction, it will gain baubles (as per the module).
If we receive enough pledges for two games, we will run two games.

Module Clarifications and Errata
There is an updated version of the module available (v2.02), with all the changes and corrections. Please ensure you use this module.

“Enemy populations can be reduced by destroying and enslaving them, but also bear in mind that your own population will be reduced by training troops, so take care!”
