It looks like the 9th Age is finally getting a print book–they just need help from players like you. Check out the details for the upcoming 9th Age Indiegogo Campaign below.
That’s right, coming October, you’ll be able to help get the rules for the 9th Age collated and printed in one book. An Indiegogo campaign is in the works for launch on October 26th, which will help launch the game into its next phase by producing a book and getting their community united for a common cause. Check out what they have planned below.

The 9th Age (also known as T9A) is classic fantasy wargame for 28mm miniatures designed to emulate massive battles of whole armies. Players control units fighting in ordered formations, powerful warmachines, monsters, and wizards. The game is being designed by a huge group of volunteers in cooperation with the players community. You can find the rules for the game free right now, right on the T9A website.
The game is supported by a number of independent miniature companies however it does not restrict you in any manner on miniatures you want to use – as long a they are properly armed and represent the correct race. As a result choosing The 9th Age you have unlimited model range to choose from.
The 9th Age is created in close cooperation with players community – project calls it community driven development. Becoming part of the players community you can be sure your voice will be at least heard by game developers even if they won’t follow strictly your suggestions.
StormRider Games role
StormRider is one of project’s supporting companies. We do not have any influence or control over the project and cannot speak on behalf of the project. Project is and will remain independent from any business activities. To maintain that independence T9A has decided not to engage in any business activities which includes commercial publishing of the game. Instead project provides companies with license to use their materials under some conditions and based in this license StormRider Games will publish T9A rulebook.
We want to promote the game and it is main goal of our campaign. We want the game to be present in hobby stories so everyone will be able to appreciate great job done by volunteers from T9A. We want the game to be visible on wargaming events so community supporting game will grow stronger and bigger. We want to create friendly business environment for other companies supporting T9A so players options to choose miniature from will even increase.
The campaign will be officially launched on 26th of October. The Pre-Launch Page of the campaign is already alive and we invite you all to visit it and sign for newsletter if you are interested in supporting StormRider Games in our publishing project.
