Hey there,

Thanks for having me here, I'm Jeris a medical student living in eastern Washington State. I've been interested in Wreck Age since the last kickstarter campaign, but unfortunately did not have the funding for it at the time. I love the setting of the game, and that it is a very unique take on a Post-Apocalyptic worlds. The factions are very interesting and different too. I'm planning on getting started here pretty soon when I free up a bit of money (being a medical student isn't a very lucrative profession), and am learning the quick start rules at the moment (and enjoying them immensely). I'll probably pick up the rulebook PDF tomorrow to do some pleasure reading when I have a bit of free time from studying medical Microbiology (Stitcher in training here).

Nice to meet you all!

:woohoo: I get excited when new people join! Just FYI, there are several free DL's available, so go get them! I ask everyone what their favorite faction is. So, what is your favorite faction, and why?
Welcome to the resurgence, everyone here is helpful, and will answer what questions they can!

Thanks folks, much appreciated!

As for my favorite faction, that's a bit of a tough call (I actually like all of the original four for different reasons). I'd have to go with the Stitchmen, I really like their back story and it's not a common idea used in post-apocalyptic settings. Being a few months out from being a Medical Lab Technician and spending lots of my residency hours in transfusion/ hematology/microbiology departments and what not, I appreciate the team did some research and added little details like needing to find ways to sterilize their instruments and graft vs. host reactions/ organ rejection. The amount of effort put into fleshing out Wreck-Age (bad pun I suppose, but I had to) is really incredible and I really respect that.

That said about the Stitchmen, I will be definitely starting up some Drifters at some point, as you can't beat the Road Warrior vibe. I really enjoy the survivalist and frontier aspect of the Stakers too, so I will probably have some on my shelf eventually. The Reclaimers are really interesting as well, and while I need to read a bit more about their background, I love the models. Eventually I would like to have a skirmish force for each of the four current groups (and possibly the upcoming ones when I find out more about them).

So basically, your favorite is "all of them"!
;)

I'd love to hear your comments once you get a chance to look through the PDF.

That's pretty accurate Anton! :)

I purchased the book and downloaded it a few hours and briefly skimmed over it. It looks to be chock full of goodies! The amount of customization is baffling and it looks like it will be a blast to play. I have to head off to bed for the night, but tomorrow evening I have free and am planning to begin my full read through. I'm really looking forward to it and would be happy to chime in with any feedback.

Thanks Anton and Msears for your hard work, this looks to be a truly great game!

Noting wrong with liking them all! I am partial to how different they are. Gives separate qualities to each faction. They (Anton and Matt, and their gang) know their craft and many hours went into making them as awesome as possible! Great to have you on board! Good luck with school!
