Wyrd: Divergent Paths Global Event


The Folks at Wyrd are at it again with another Global Event – The Fate of three new characters are in players hands.

Wyrd Games is no strangers to Global Events. The last one they ran was the Nythera Worldwide event. This one looks to be more or less focused on Malifaux with 3 new characters involved.

The Divergent Paths global event will run from September 12, 2016 until November 20, 2016.

Divergent Paths is global Malifaux event that gives players all over the world a chance to help shape the future of Malifaux. It begins with three individuals: a snarky practical joker, an inquisitive child, and a self-righteous man. As the event progresses, each character will walk their own path and become something different from what they once were.

Divergent Paths puts the control of these character’s development in the hands of our community of players. Every other week, each character will be given a special story encounter scenario and a list of abilities. Based on which Faction gets the most wins in the story encounter, the character will gain one of those abilities. At the end of the campaign, each character will become an actual Malifaux model with abilities based on the results of the campaign.*

*All results are subject to playtesting. The final version of the character may appear significantly different than what was provided at the end of the event in order to make the character work well within the game of Malifaux, but every attempt will be made to ensure that the flavor and spirit of the event makes it onto the final rules..


If you want to check out how to participate then read all the rules on the Divergent Paths Website. But participating is as easy as playing a game with the unique scenario rules and submitting your results. You can also go to local participating stores to get games in as well. If you’re looking to report your results or looking for participating stores just scroll down on the Divergent Paths page for all the info.


Happy Hunting Malifaux Players – you just might catch a new character!

    This sounds really cool. I really like the Early Edwardian feel of Wyrd’s minis; like the journalists and Early Edwardian psychopathic dream murder-bears.

    Excited to see how the new characters’ stories unfold. My group’s just getting into Malifaux, helped by the NOVA Open cooling off some of our previous dedication to Infinity (hard not to get swept up in all the other games being played there; meanwhile CB’s rep was kind of a letdown), and the biweekly story progress should be great to keep up with.
    Played my first story encounter for it tonight, McCabe’s starter crew versus my friend’s Hoffman starter crew, fighting over the Self-Righteous Man.
