Black Chicken Studios, Inc., under license from Atlas Games, is thrilled to announce the beginning of the Ars Magica: Years of Conquest KickStarter Campaign!

Years of Conquest is based on Atlas Games’ award-winning Ars Magica role-playing game, and features a full century of simulation gameplay in a fantastic and magical Medieval setting. A faithful rendition of the original game, Years of Conquest incorporates the full Fifth Edition rules, including the legendarily powerful and flexible magic system.

The player must build their own Covenant in a time of invasion and strife and protect it from influences both within and without, if they are to attain the dizzying heights of magical power. For the first time in the 25 year history of Ars Magica, players are invited to discover the secrets of House Diedne, a powerful and enigmatic House facing total destruction.

100 years of gameplay, from 1000-1100 A.D.
Cast powerful Spells, in any portion of the game
Plan, build and upgrade your defenses, village and laboratory
A unique combat engine in which the environment plays as significant a role as the opponents
Research magic, create powerful artifacts and leave a legacy
Interact with a cast of hundreds
Protect your Covenfolk as they live, grow, work, play and pass on to the next generation
Interact with Knut, William the Conqueror and the First Crusade
Make difficult judgments, each leading you one step closer to an ultimate destiny


KickStarter pledges containing the full game begin at $20, and the game, if funded, is expected to launch Q2 2014.
