  • Age of Anarchy is a historical RPG (powered by the “Perpetual Motion Engine”) set in lawless England after the Norman invasion. “King Stephen of Blois and the Empress Matilda both claim the throne. It is a period of strife between factions, and a time when powerful feudal lords are created and destroyed. The Anarchy is full of dramatic events, The King of Scotland launches an invasion to support Matilda’s claim to the throne. King Stephen imprisons bishops who oppose him and confiscates their castles. The Empress Matilda’s forces take King Stephen prisoner, and his wife Maud leads the forces still loyal to the king. This turbulent period of history is dramatized in Ellis Peters’ Brother Cadfael novels, and in Ken Follett’s The Pillars of the Earth, both turned into successful UK television series.” Age of Anarchy comes from Ryan Danks (Jadepunk, in the November 2014 Bundle of Fate +2) and Paul Mitchener (Age of Arthur and Hunters of Alexandria, both seen in past offers).
