Chronicles: The Game Core Rules[]

The Core Rulebook will describe to you how to put your Chronicles armies on the tabletop and play a game of Chronicles.

The Core Rulebook is a living document, meaning that as rules are changed, clarifications made, or updates added, the WIKI will reflect those changes. Therefore, you can come back here at anytime to get updates or to check on rules.

Visit the Rule Updates page to see the list of Updates that have occurred over time and to see what has changed since the last time you were here.

Under Construction[]

This section of the WIKI is under constant construction as we move towards a final release from beta. Eventually, this will also include all of the art and cool eye candy found in the printed rules.

Game Play Video[]

Our Rules strive to be as "tight" as possible with as few words as possible. This means that often, very obvious, simple things, get muddled in language required to fight off the rules lawyers! This is common to all games.

Before you read the rules, we highly recommend you watch this simple game play video which walks you through a single game turn. This will help to clarify how simple Chronicles really is, and then you can reference the hard rules in a much more approachable way!
