You awake lying on a tropical beach, rags clinging to your damp skin, as you realise... you have been shipwrecked on a strange island!
Wild calls from the jungle alert you to the instant danger, but luckily, you are not alone.
Welcome to Ulaya Chronicles: Raptor Claw Island, a cooperative or solo tabletop miniatures game where you battle terrifying dinosaurs, bloodthirsty pirates and discover exotic locations in your search for a way home.
Played over a series of interconnected games, Ulaya Chronicles is a story based campaign experience.
Make important choices which effect the narrative, steer the combat style of your character, and reveal a mysterious plot which you, the players, must unravel.
A solo or cooperative experience, Ulaya Chronicles features a card driven AI system. Each type of enemy (mostly dinosaurs!) have unique behaviours and personalities. Each enemy type is a different tactical puzzle to solve, and ensure every play through is a different experience.
Bringing you something you've never seen in a miniatures wargame before: card driven, narrative scenarios! Card decks control each scenario, and manage both your objectives and exciting story events. Race to complete your objectives before the dangers of the "Heat Deck" overcome you.
These events, and how you respond to them, effect both the course of the game and the future of the campaign. Do you befriend the merchant you meet on the road or rob them? Choices steer the game in a different direction, but many decisions will have repercussions later in the campaign!
Ulaya Chronicles is a stand alone game, based on the mechanics as The Drowned Earth, streamlined to accommodate AI mechanics, and campaign progression.
Both games share the same range of miniatures, and many components, meaning that Ulaya Chronicles is an excellent gateway in to The Drowned Earth, or way to expand your TDE collection.
Perhaps the most exciting aspect of Ulaya Chronicles for The Drowned Earth players: the AI system will be fully importable in to TDE games. Do you want NPC dinosaurs in your competitive games? Do you want to weaponise the jungle against your enemy? Well you can! Just imagine the scenario possibilities... we are!
