There’s never been a better time to get in games of Malifaux as Wyrd Games has announced the launching of their global Malifaux campaign, Homefront, on October 2nd.
“The appearance of the Burning Man on Earth has led to conflict on a scale that hasn’t been seen since the days of the Black Powder Wars. By 1907, the forces of the King’s Empire and Abyssinia are engaged in open warfare with the scattered forces of the Cult of the Burning Man and the Gibbering Hordes.
The sensational newspaper headlines from Earth have played up this conflict, portraying it as the war to end all wars. This propaganda has left many of Malifaux’s residents concerned about the world they left. Most of them have families, holdings, or interests back on Earth and are concerned about the chaos that has engulfed their homelands.
While most people in Malifaux do not have the resources or power to make much of a difference in the unfolding war, there are those whose influence can make a difference. The leaders of the various factions have access to the most valuable resource Malifaux has to offer: Soulstones.
It is not easy to smuggle Soulstones through the Breach, however, let alone to get them into the hands of those who need them most. The growing desire of Malifaux’s wealthy and influential citizens to send remittances home has led to a new boom in the city’s smuggling operations. Three of these groups, in particular, are willing to help transport Soulstones and other material goods back to those on Earth…… for a price.
Only one of these syndicates will get enough power and wealth to establish a power base back on Earth and take their place on the world stage. You must decide which of the three smuggling syndicates your Crew will support. With a little luck, the syndicate you are supporting will gain the strength it needs to survive the growing conflicts.”
Homefront will feature five two-week blocks of the campaign, for a ten-week journey into Malifaux. During this time, players will seek victory in order to pledge their allegiance with one of the 3 syndicates: The Council, The Sandmen or the Order of the Chimera.
The ultimate winner of Homefront will see their faction represented as next year’s Nightmare Box and if that’s not cool enough, they will see their syndicate featured as the first universal syndicate for The Other Side (just in case you haven’t already dipped your toes into the war on The Other Side of the Breach)!
Which syndicate will you be supporting through your games in Homefront?
