Eternal Dynasty
Designed by Zucchini People Games
Description: Eternal Dynasty is a game for 2-5 players with elements of territory control, worker placement, and political maneuvering. Each game consists of a number of Generations equal to the number of players, with each Generation consisting of several rounds of play. At the beginning of each Generation, players will select a Ruler who will have different inherent bonuses for Military or Political Influence, number of cards to play for their Generation, and a unique Ability.

Designed by Letiman Games

Keen planning and outright bluffing will give the inventors the edge they need to outwit their opponents. Once an gadget is built, a player may utilize its special power to their advantage.

Hero Brigade
Designed by Zucchini People Games
Description: Hero Brigade is a fast-paced heroic card game for 1-2 players that features elements of deck-building and positional card-battling. Take on the role of the Heroes or the Villains and prepare to throw down! Each character card can be played in three different ways (deployed to your Party’s Front Row, deployed to your Support Row, or used for a one-time game effect). Hero Brigade also offers unique twists on conventional deck-building mechanisms. Drawing extra cards and eliminating your starting cards can hurt you in the long term as you permanently lose cards from your deck each time you reshuffle and each time one of your characters is defeated. Running out of cards loses you the game!

Designed by Tremorworks
Description: Paragon is a whole new take on the HDL system, with dramatically expanded rules, a complete magic system, integrated cybernetics rules, and most importantly, a totally revamped Active Delay combat system. Under the hood, it’s still the best of the original HDL system, with point-based character creation, customizable characters with Backgrounds and Weaknesses, cards for both character-building and in-game effects, and the underlying HDL dice mechanic. But the new Paragon rules take the game to new heights, expanding rules to 334 full-color pages.
