This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Hey guys,

Wreck Age is a post-collapse 28mm skirmish game and narrative RPG set 500 years in the future; hundreds of years after a total societal collapse. We are now in the midst of The Resurgence, where pockets of society are just beginning to re-establish themselves. We are here to ask for your support to bring a long-term dream of ours to reality: vehicles!


We're proud to launch this Kickstarter campaign for our resin and metal scale vehicle models. Each kit will be easy to assemble, convert, and paint. We're doing some neat stretch goals and have a bunch of cool add-ons too. Before unlocking these stretch goals, we're starting with 3 post-collapse car chassis. From there we have lots of cool stuff to unlock, including a truck chassis, motorcycles, ATV, horse riders, and buggies. With your help, we'll reach all of those goals and more!

In Wreck-Age, your miniatures battle it out on the tabletop in a unique narrative hybrid of efficient skirmish battle and role playing drama. By introducing vehicles, you’ll be able to expand the size and scope of your games. From the basic 3’ x 3’ gaming table through to huge layouts that stretch for dozens of meters, you can create death race scenarios, caravan chases, and run the gauntlet of ‘toll booths’ set up by highway robbers. The only limit is the amount of space you have, and your imagination. No matter how you choose to integrate vehicles into your Wreck-Age experience, you’ll be able to move your models around the board much more quickly than you would on foot, using simple rules mechanics that allow for depth of play, while maintaining ease of play, and ensuring record keeping is kept to a minimum. You can take control of a crew of your choosing, selecting from the nomadic Drifters, the pragmatic Stakers, the tech zealots known as the Reclaimers, or the vampyric Stitchers; you may even choose to venture off into the Wilds in your vehicles, without the support of an organized faction.

Thanks for checking us out!


Hello everyone,

Hyacinth Games have a slew of new RPG and miniature gaming content coming out for Wreck Age, our post collapse RPG and miniatures line.

Shangri LA is an upcoming Wreck Age source book which will give you a plethora of details and background on the fabled floating city that lays isolated on the Washed Coast of the Merikan continent.

The city state of Shangri LA is a coalition of many water-borne communities in Malibu Bay and the surrounding areas, from the lawless Sandy Echo, to the social and economic heart of Shangri LA: the Sphere. Shangri LAs borders span many countless kilometers, and is defended by a volunteer citizen militia. Outsiders are met with disdain and contempt, and all but the most resourceful and renown traders must do business at the far-flung trade posts of the Boneyards, laying deep in the Mojave desert, and connected to the city by a high speed rail line.

You can find out more at:

The Omen is a Wreck Age adventure for 3-5 players, who may each control up to two characters each. This adventure is designed for green level characters.

The Omen is set in the rugged eastern end of the Merikan continent, but can easily be modified to fit any Wreck Age setting.

Hyacinth Games has a rapidly expanding line of Wreck Age RPG content, tabletop wargames, and a full line of miniatures.

It is currently available for $4.99 at

Thanks for the interest! If you want to check out Wreck Age our site is the best place to start.



Wreck Age is a post-collapse 28mm tabletop skirmish miniatures game and is also a narrative RPG.

The world of Wreck Age is rich and varied, allowing you to use this starter box as a jump off point for a variety of campaigns and
encounters limited only by your imagination.

We're proud to announce our first starter box, which allows 2 people to play Wreck Age. It features the vampyric Stitchers and the
barbaric Drifters. Showdown @ Burnt Tierra Gulch features 8 pewter miniatures, 4 pieces of resin terrain, waypoint tokens, a scenario
pack, and quickstart rules. Miniatures come unpainted and unassembled.

Many of the haggard and dilapidated roads and trails through the Wilds of Merika leave travelers exposed the elements. Burnt Tierra
Gulch offers protection from the weather for the caravan paths and walking trails that converge there. Due to the high rate of traffic, it
holds strategic significance to both the Stitchers and the Drifters in the Area, either for the organs they can harvest, or the goods they
can take. Playing Showdown at Burnt Tierra Gulch will determine who will control the gulch, and in turn, the resources that flow
through it.

We're a small gaming company out of Chicago, and we'd really appreciate your support. We offer free international shipping on all orders over $200.!/~/product/category=0&id=38820387

News and Adverts / New Wreck Age Starter Set: the Stitchers!
« on: September 05, 2013, 03:27:31 pm »
We have plenty of imagery at http://wreck-age (since we can't post it here!)

The Stitchers are horrifying and self-serving individuals. They originated from the doctors and medical staff whose ship crashed back to Earth during the Exodus. The struggle for survival through the Big Push and the Dark Times twisted their worldview. As humanity preyed upon itself their intimate understanding of the human body gave them an edge. Those who were willing to embrace the darkness and forsake their Hippocratic Oath used that edge to both hunt and heal strictly for their own survival. Tranquilizers and narcotics were the preferred methods of hunting so they could drag their victims back to their makeshift med camps. When they sustained injuries they could repair themselves and when their blood got tainted by poisons and disease that blood could be transfused. As time went on and their bodies deteriorated they found their own failing organs could then be replaced with those of the young and spry. This has kept them at the top of the predatory chain, spawning tales of terror wherever they may roam or settle, as the unsuspecting are carried off into the night. Despite their technical knowledge of the human anatomy, the one thing they still cannot replace is the human brain. Centuries of psychological trauma and physical degeneration have taken their toll on many of the Stitchers. The Doctors and Administrators reign under the influence of dementia, psychosis, and an intermittent supply of corrective medications. The Stitchers are medical scientists driven to a nightmarish extreme, hunting those they once healed, and harvesting their organs to promote their own longevity.

This box contains five unpainted 28mm Stitcher models including one Administrator with Shock Staff, one Administrator with Jaws of Life, one Hunter with Narco Gun, and two Hunters with Tranq Rifles. It also contains five blank 25mm bases and complete stat cards so that they can be played right out of the box with our Quick Start Rules.!/~/product/category=6202037&id=26890248

For those of you who already own some Stitcher models here are the updated Stat Cards:

My teeth wiggle. Need more information, like genre conceits, mechanic, and other 'wow' stuff.

That is perhaps the least information I have ever seen on a website that didn't have a countdown associated with it.

@blackhand- Thanks! It is appreciated. Nice blog btw.

@summerjon- We are always looking for ways to make this stuff cheaper. Unfortunately it's not very easy at our level to keep costs down.

The Staker box set has arrived, including 7 of our true scale 28mm minis for only $55! This set also includes the box set only Pitchfork Farmhand. It is exciting to get these bad boys out since we feel they are a pretty good deal compared to our standard blister packs.
