What are the Skeins?
Complete game worlds and decks created exclusively for the CHRONOS system.
While Chronos is a universal system, it is hard work on a Game Organizer to devise a fully-realized world from scratch. To this end, we have created the Skeins. Skeins are comprehensive Chronos settings; they provide history, genre, and context for unique worlds within the Chronos universe. Skeins also come with their own book and cards, which may be used alongside existing Chronos cards, that provide a wide array of new mechanics, augments, and items to add flavor and substance to a game. Skeins may also be used with each other, to the Game Organizer's discretion.
