One of Raine's biggest hobbies has always been gaming. It all started with an Atari and spread out to Yu-Gi-Oh!, Magic: the Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons. As an artist, Raine takes pride in painting models for games as well as making his own terrain. He's also been a writer for many years, working both in the journalism industry and writing pieces of fiction. He decided to create Initiative : Tabletop as a platform to talk about all things gaming that he simply thought were cool, and reviewing games became a part of it!

Through the Darkness: The Story of Machinations Available Now from Privateer Press

Through the Darkness Warmachine Book

Rutger Shaw doesn’t have a lot of friends, but to the ones he does keep, he’s loyal to his last breath. That’s why Taryn di la Rovissi is a bit afraid, and it’s also why she isn’t excited when Rutger skips out on yet another contract so they can help out his old pal, Brunner Aunsworth. In the hopes of liberating a town called Dunlyf from Khadoran advances, the group joins a Highborn army and runs across Rutger’s age-old enemy, Harlan Versh. Through some investigation it appears that the region is being plagues by a mysterious evil, and enemies become alliances. Together the group seeks to uncover clues that point to a dangerous threat lurking right beneath their feet.

The fluff from Warmachine is what initially brings in a lot of the game’s players. Sure, the models are awesome, and the game is downright fun to play, but the fiction behind the game is amazing too. Each faction has its own rich back story, and beyond that there are interlaying tales that help weave the story of Immoren.

The Convergence of Cyriss is a faction full of dangerous machines, and they’ve remained secret for years. A new book, released by Skull Island Expeditions, touches on the very beginning of the faction, all while wrapping up some colorful characters in the mix. You can get a copy of the book, entitled Through the Darkness: The Story of Machines, right now on the Skull Island Expeditions page. Through January 5th the book is free if you use the special code listed, so make sure you get over and grab it!
