THE LAND OF ULAYA
A land of jungle and ruins
THE REMNANTS OF A MIGHTY CIVILISATION
The Drowned Earth is a world where heroes and villains risk the hazards of the wild for glorious riches and ancient technologies!
For hundreds of years nature reclaimed the earth, pre-historic monsters ruled the wilds, while the survivors of the cataclysm known as "The Event" struggled to survive.
Now a New Enlightenment has dawned, and the fragile glimmer of civilisation has begun to shine. Now the fight is on for who will control this precious knowledge.
Which side will you take?
Folk stories tell of boiling black skies raining fire while seas rose up to break the land asunder. Tales are told of the floods and devastation, death and destruction on an unimaginable scale, the earthquakes, choking winds and an entire world dying, wreathed in flame.
The result: a timeless and world spanning civilisation crushed in an almighty cataclysm the likes of which has never been seen before or since.
Known as “The Fall”, nobody truly knows what happened. Some say it was the retribution of the gods, punishing the arrogance of The Builders. Others say it was a terrible war to end all wars, but all agree that the once mighty civilisation that ruled The Drowned Earth was utterly crushed.
The Drowned Earth is a land of racial diversity. Humans are not the only intelligent species to occupy the world. These different species often live side by side, creating diverse and cosmopolitan societies. Along with humans, these are the major races:
The Berengeii are a race of wise Gorillas, wise and thoughtful, but fearsome when angered.
The Sorrians are a reptilian species of inquisitive wanderers and adventurers.
The Dverg are a diminutive species of Near-Human; Hard working, redoubtable and with a passion for machines.
Every single game that I've played has been INCREDIBLY CINEMATIC.

ENTER THE RUINS OF THE PAST...

Played on a 3ftx3ft table with 5-15 models a side, TDE is a game of dynamic movement, cinematic action and narrative gameplay, where risk vs reward must be weighed every turn.
The mechanics of TDE encourage a cinematic, dramatic style of game where critical decisions of risk vs reward must be weighed.

At the heart of the game is the Dynamic Movement system, where models can leap, climb, jump off buildings and shoot while doing so!

A combination of cinematic action and an emphasis on named characters means that TDE has a very narrative feel: each game tells a story.
