The Dusties Series
The Dusties Series is unfolding mystery at its best. You'll want to try it out, and here's how.
"Skillfully built and excitingly original... Keeps you guessing at every new twist. And there are many, many twists." -- Bernard M. Harkins
"After reading just a few chapters I was hooked. This book breaks the typical barriers of fantasy as the author allows you to explore a world of his own making. The 'Mystery' of the book is truly the desire and excitement to explore the environment the author has created and understand it for yourself as you get lost in it. I would suggest this book to any fan of The Eragon cycle, Harry Potter books and the like. Being a huge fan of those series myself, I must admit that neither has gripped me quite like this one has already. It's a great read for all." -- Taylor Spence
This is no normal tale.
It is mouse to your cat, fox to your hound, Moriarty to your Sherlock, and it will dash ahead of you calling, “Catch me if you can!”
And if you can, you are not normal either.
Cast off where you are and what you know and gather together in the dark with the Dusties.
In a world that has lost its light, among equally lost humans, a tiny colony of newly awakened and isolated Dusties struggle to make sense of and survive their bizarre surroundings. But as the survivors penetrate the enveloping darkness and tug at the mysteries around them, they begin to discover both a deadly threat and the elusive pattern that could save their existence.
In the distant future, the virtual arena is prepared, the teams organized, and the challengers immersed in their personality templates, becoming the great archetypes from all of human history and experience. The alarm sounds, and virtual reality becomes reality...
Select a team of characters. Overcome adventures and the enemy team to win favor, achievements, and ultimate victory. And while you are at it, enjoy the stories that your game builds.
Filled with endlessly deep strategy, 192 fascinating characters, 400 treasures and an endless supply of maps, Duel of Ages II is a uniquely varied tabletop board game that you can enjoy for years and never see the same game twice.
Duel of Ages II is a time-scramble board game played between two opposing sides each having 1 to 4 players, with uneven size allowable. Each side controls a selected team of 8-12 characters from different ages of time: Ancient, Colonial, Modern and Future. The goal is to win greater glory in overcoming adventures and in tactical combat than the opposing team.
Duel of Ages II is an adventure game. It contains combat but it is not a combat game. In fact, many characters are poor at fighting but excellent at adventuring, and victory comes from doing what your characters do best while keeping the enemy team from doing the same. Game strategy involves making a thousand small, important decisions each turn as the game situation changes radically. And when you're done, win or lose, you'll talk about the interesting and memorable events of the game, and the possibilities in the games to come.
