A Game That Remembers …

Leder Games and Patrick Leder (Owner) is excited to announce their upcoming Kickstarter campaign, Oath: Chronicles of Empire and Exile, will be launching January 14th, 2020, game design by Cole Wehrle (Root: A Game of Woodland Might and Right, Pax Pamir), and art by Kyle Ferrin (Vast: The Crystal Caverns, Root: A Game of Woodland Might and Right, Vast: The Mysterious Manor).

Oath: Chronicles of Empire and Exile is a one to six player strategy game where players will guide the course of history in an ancient land. They might attempt to bolster power of the Chancellor or scheme to bring the kingdom to ruin. The consequences of one game will ripple through those that follow, changing what resources and actions future players may have at their disposal and even altering the game's core victory condition.

At the end of each game of Oath: Chronicles of Empire and Exile, players will take account of what happened in their game during the Chronicle Phase. During this phase, the game’s board will be re-centered around the territory of the game’s victor, the victory condition may be adjusted, and new cards will be introduced to the deck depending on how the previous game was won. When they have completed this process, they will have advanced the history of their world by a generation and set the stage for the next crisis.

There is no pre-written narrative or pre-determined endpoint. Oath: Chronicles of Empire and Exile is not a legacy game. Instead, it is a game about legacy where the choices the players make will determine what happens next.

Gameplay will only take between 45 to 120 minutes depending on player experience and certain events that may happen in the game.

After funding on Kickstarter, Leder Games plans on releasing Oath: Chronicles of Empire and Exile directly online and in retail stores Q1 2021.

Extremely hyped for this. Head over to our Oath thread to see all the diaries, etc. I've even been watching some of their promitional material.

It’s going around Reddit that the price is 90$(plus shipping) vs 110$ MSRP. I know we are in the era of $100 BoardGames, but that feels like a lot of scratch. I may have to wait for retail on this one.

There's only one tier, no exclusives, no FOMO and it goes to retail for sure so it's one you all should feel very comfortable assessing later.

That's a good chunk more money than ROOT. To be honest, I've barely read up on the game because he's pretty much auto buy for me, so anything I read now won't be remembered later. That is getting up there in price for something that likely won't hit the table that much unless it is decent 2P. That price also MAY deter some retail sales; ROOT was a fair bit cheaper IIRC.

Yeah, but Pax Pamir wasn't cheaper and you can't find that anywhere. I found one copy on the shelf at my FLGS and it was $100. Couldn't afford it then. Can't now, either.

I have a feeling given Wehrle’s profile these days it will be in print longer due a larger print run but we’ll see.

Pamir was published by Cole and his brothers company and was specifically a low print run Kickstarter thing, this is being published by Leder Games and sent to retail. Presumably it will be generally available for the foreseeable future like Root and Vast.
