Eden - overview and links to resources

Added a page for this see Tab bar

Tabans Eden is one of the best skirmish games out there the moment. Taban is a French base company and some of the more detailed background (Fluff) is only in French. Here is my attempt at putting it all together in one place. I will try and add to this as more information becomes available.


Welcome to a barren planet, swept by the icy winds of a never ending winter and littered by the ashes and blood of men.  Welcome among its children hidding to escape the barbaric hordes of the survivors. Eden proposes two players to take control of these groups struggling for survival and fight each other in a game of skirmishes. Welcome to your new paradise, the new ... Eden ! After the Apocalypse many groups are fighting just to breathe the foul air a few more hours.


Return to nature and tribal simplicity has won the only humans who survived the surface during these years of destruction. Unfortunate products of pre-war genetic experiments to create super soldiers, the Bamakas tribe consists of mutants who willingly reject their humanity

For The Matriarchy of Sybille, technology and misinterpretation of religion by men are the source of all evils. In the depths, this group of women has forged its own syncretism based on 4 orders Directors, each one following a Horsemen Of The Apocalypse precepts. The sisters and paladines now return to the surface with their slavish troops to extend their influence and ensure that no more male will ever plunge the world into chaos.


A NPF is a fighter who has his own motivations and cannot be recruited by the players for their bands

Is there anything in French that fleshes out the background of all the individual characters? I like the models and the gameplay but the story's and fluff seems to be lacking so far.
