Day 55 Christmas Eve night, unnamed settlement, Badlands of Tarkania

The Survivors are weary, sitting together around a fireplace in an abandoned home contemplating their final moments. The sun is almost down and soon hordes of the undead will be upon them for what is likely the final time. Bobby Lee rises to his feet, ready to face the challenge.  His fellow survivors join him.

Thriller: This is the end! WOOOOO! See you on the other side, gentlemen!

Nikolai: If tonight is our last, so be it.  We go down with a fight!

A blinding light fills the room as the fireplace is suddenly replaced by a time portal.

A voice in the light speaks: If you want to live, come with me now.

Nikolai: Who the hell are you?

As zombies begin destroying the walls of the home, Nikolai fires a shot at first attacker entering the room.  Bobby Lee takes a final look around before grabbing Nikolai and Thriller in a big bear hug.  He takes a deep breath before jumping through the portal.

Filsinger Games Has Just Become Filsinger Gameshausen

Best of the Indies 2020 just got very evil with the addition of one of the most unique wrestlers on the Indie scene, Danhausen!  Donovan Danhausen got his start on the midwest independents in 2013, but it wasn’t until his start with the Production in AIW and his subsequent transformation into the macabre Danhausen that his career really took off.  Known for his spooky white and black face paint and suspicious jar of teeth (that may or may not have come from a previous victim), Danhausen has been known to freak out opponents and delight fans.  He has also formed an occasional tag team with fellow Midwest indie standout Warhorse, as Warhausen.  Who will be Danhausen’s first victim in your indie promotion?

Danhausen joins Matthew Justice, Warhorse, Ace Austin, AJ Gray, Blake Christian and Alex Zayne in the Best of the Indies 2020 8-pack.  Preorders are now available for Best of the Indies 2020, Invasion 2090 and The Pitbulls Legends 2-Pack!  To preorder now CLICK HERE.

Promoters will be quick to team up PJ and his father Luke Hawx (found in the Tier 1 Wrestling pack).  Will they be a contender in your team rankings?

The Juice has Arrived in Best of the Indies 2020!

The 6th wrestler in the best of the Indies 2020 game edition, is one of the most charismatic young wrestlers on the indie scene today, AJ Gray.  “Rich Homie Juice” got his start in his home state of Tennessee, but can be found all over the Midwest independents including the promotion where he really began to break out AIW.  The former collegiate athlete can over power opponents with a variety of impactful moves, but often will surprise opponents with a crazy dive to the outside.  There is no doubt that AJ Gray will continue to raise his profile on the indie wrestling scene and continue to gain fans through his work in the ring and on social media.

Day 50

Bobby Lee sits alone on a couch of an unidentifiable military bunker wearing a thousand yard stare. Dead bodies of zombies the Survivors just killed lay at their feet.

Bobby Lee: I knew that guy. I knew that guy and I killed him.

Second Man: Who did you know?

Bobby Lee: [Pointing toward one of the zombie bodies] I played against him in high school. I hadn’t seen him in years. But I recognize the man. He went off to play ball somewhere else the same year I was drafted here.

Second Man: That was no man. That was a monster.

Thriller: That’s right man! And you tore his stinking head off like it was nothing! HA!

Bobby Lee finally breaks his thousand yard stare and fixates his gaze on Thriller.

Best of the Indies is now “All Heart” with the Addition of Blake Christian

The 5th wrestler in the Best of the Indies 2020 game edition is the high flyer out of Tennessee, Blake Christian.  Blake’s wrestling career started in 2017, primarily in the southern independent scene.  But in 2019 he got the opportunity to perform on a national stage and ran with it.  A landmark match with Alex Zayne helped to elevate them both, to where now the duo are now often seen featured as a highlight match and as a tag team all over the country.  While its often the aerial maneuvers that catch the attention of new fans, its his hard hitting intensity that has brought him a number of wins over wrestlers of all sizes.  Will you book Blake Christian vs. Alex Zayne on your next indie show or will you pair them together and set them loose on your tag team scene?  Its up to you promoter!

Blake Christian joins Matthew Justice, Warhorse, Ace Austin and Alex Zayne in the Best of the Indies 2020 8-pack.  Preorders are now available for Best of the Indies 2020, Invasion 2090 and The Pitbulls Legends 2-Pack!  To preorder now CLICK HERE.

Look Out! Matthew Justice Dives into Best of the Indies 2020!

The 4th man to be part of the upcoming Best of the Indies 2020 expansion set, is one of the most fearless wrestlers on the indies today, Matthew Justice.  The Ohio native has been wrestling on the indie scene since the mid-2000’s, but has really risen in notoriety last summer when a video of him driving an opponent off a balcony through a table went viral.  Jumping off high structures has become a calling card of Matthew Justice now.  While Justice is now being seen on the indie scene throughout the country, his home promotion is AIW in Cleveland, where he made his return in 2017 and now is both the AIW Absolute and Intense champion and is managed by the legendary Bill Alfonso.  Matthew Justice has always gone against the grain and the trends, and is now gathering a large fan following for it.

Matthew Justice joins Warhorse, Ace Austin and Alex Zayne in the Best of the Indies 2020 8-pack.  Preorders are now available for Best of the Indies 2020, Invasion 2090 and The Pitbulls Legends 2-Pack!  To preorder now CLICK HERE.

Its Time to Put Some Sauce on the Best of the Indies 2020 with Alex Zayne

The latest addition to the Best of the Indies 2020 game edition is the sensational high flyer from Kentucky, Alex Zayne.  While Zayne has become one of the most popular wrestlers on the indie scene in the past year, he actually began his in ring career back in 2005.  A viral clip of him in the summer of 2019 put him on the map and now he is appearing at all the top independent promotions, including some recent matches with Ring of Honor.  The only thing that rivals his innovative offense, is his obsession with tacos, which is the theme of the names of these innovative moves.  So next time you grab a taco, or book your indie promotion, don’t forget “The Sauce”.

Alex Zayne joins Warhorse, Ace Austin and 5 other brand new wrestlers in the Best of the Indies 2020 game pack.  The set will be released in late May and will be available for presale Monday May 4th.  Stay tuned each Wednesday for more announcements!

Centra: Badlands of Tarkania – A Prequel Tale: Part One

The following story starts the chronicle the 3 characters being released in Q2 2020 COTG Prime as part of The SURVIVORS. Badlands of Tarkania, Centra: A Prequel Story.  Stay tuned for parts 2 and 3 with more character art reveals in May.

TIMELINE – Unknown Settlements, Badlands of Tarkania, Centra

Day 1

The first case of an unknown virus in a remote settlement located in the Badlands of Tarkania.  Scientists are so far unable to determine its origin.

Day 8

The novel virus has been spreading rapidly.  Officials have been working to slow the spread, but the infection rate is rising rapidly.  After going thorough contact tracing, Centra health officials believe that all cases seem to be linked to a single individual who had spent time at the Ruins of Antilia. No further information about the individual is available.  A temporary hospital is being constructed because the remote settlement does not have the facilities to handle the large number of infections that are being reported.

Day 10

The first death from the “Antilia Virus” (as the media has dubbed it) occurred today.  More and more members of the remote settlement have been coming forward with symptoms, which include numbness in extremities, severe headache and difficulty breathing.

Day 20

Chaos has consumed the settlement.  In just over two weeks, ten percent of the population has died from the Antilia Virus.  Dead bodies are beginning to pile up in the streets as there are no real coroner facilities in the settlement.  Those not yet infected are fighting among each other, stealing from one another or worse. The entire settlement and three other settlements nearby have become lawless. Centra officials have quarantined the entire area and no one can get in or out.

Day 40

The worst nightmares have come true. The settlements are under attack from a zombie apocalypse! Over half the population in the area has been killed by the rabid Antilia Virus.  13 days after death, Antilia Virus victims have been coming back from the dead. Nobody is safe. If you can hear this transmission, find cover now!

[Sounds of zombies breaking down doors can be heard]

Be safe!  May God have mercy on us all!

[Gun shots]

No….NO!!

[Screams are heard before the transmission cuts out and all we have is dead air.]

Day 41

An automated news cam catches three Survivors walking carefully down a set of train tracks in a dust storm. They are scavenging abandoned box cars for gas, weapons, food, medicine and tools.

Day 42

All hope is lost.  Zombies are everywhere all across the settlement and the surrounding area. If there are any survivors still out there, they are alone. All communication has been lost.  The last roaming news cam stopped broadcasting.

Day 45 (All footage hereafter was recovered from cams with that were found in the recovery effort)

A hulking figure stands with slumped shoulders leaning against a wall in an ally.  Dead bodies of zombies the Survivors just killed lay at their feet. The second man quietly digs through the pockets of the dead, collecting their supplies and weapons. A third man is pacing around with a bat.  He exudes an excitement that stands in stark contrast to his fellow survivors.

Thriller: WOOO!  Hell yeah! What a rush! You think there are any more coming?

His compatriots don’t respond, but continue to go about their business.
