The name’s Davenport. I review games.
So the other day I’m sittin’ at my desk goin’ through my review copies, when I hear a knock.
At the window.
I go check it out, and what do I see there? A lizard-man ridin’ a brontosaurus.
Now, as it happens, this wasn’t all that unexpected. See, I’d just recently wrapped up a Torg Eternity gig, and I knew that a sourcebook for the Living Land, their prehistoric reality, would be comin’ down the pike pretty soon.
Speakin’ of pikes, the lizard guy had a nasty-looking plant-spear in one hand. Fortunately, he had the sourcebook in the other.
“So,” I says as the lizard guy climbed through the window, “I gotta tell ya, I’ve been lookin’ forward to this one. The old Living Land didn’t do much for me, but the new one with its Law of Wonders sounds like everything but the kitchen sink can show up there.”
“There issss no kitchen ssssink,” Mr. Lizard agrees, “but there issss a refrigerator.”
A fridge in the Living Land? This I had to see…
<+Polyhedralknight> Well I”m Mickey Barfield. I’m the lead designer at The Polyhedral Knights. We produced Spy, Pathogen Unclassified, Wicked Pacts and currenlty working on Dark Times
<+Polyhedralknight> Our project we are doing now is game related
<+TGI-Dragonfly> Hey! Yes, I’m back. Got distracted by my 11 month old.
<&Silverlion> Wicked Pacts is cool. What is “Unclassified?”
<+Polyhedralknight> I was approached by an actor and producer about IP on Pathogen Unclassified
<+Polyhedralknight> Unclassified is the story of what happened before Pathogen Unclassified. It is what caused the world to go to Hell in a handbasket
<+Polyhedralknight> Since I”m kind of a no body in Hollywood but Kevin and Andre seemed to really like what I did they talked to me about doing a Kickstarter for this. THey were hoping it would help fund the film they want to shoot. I wrote a screen play that they liked a lot
<+jeremyTangman> My name is Jeremy Tangman and I created a tabletop Steampunk rpg caled Avenadia.
<+jeremyTangman> Its a Steampunk rpg in which the world has fought back against its inhabitants in way of contamination. everything was contaminated most died and others mutated to survive.
<+jeremyTangman> So the survivors are left to creat a new society and caste system.
<+Ed_Jowett> Hi everyone, I’m Ed Jowett from Shades of Vengeance. It’s a pleasure to be back once again to talk about another of our amazing games!
<+Firlefanz> Hi Ed!
<+Ed_Jowett> I’m the lead game designer of SoV and I’m here today to talk about Era: Lyres – specifically the Definitive Edition Rulebook, which is currently on Kickstarter for the Make100 initiative.
<+Ed_Jowett> The link is here: (Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/shadesofvengeance/make100-era-lyres-definitive-edition?ref=5qxaon)https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/shadesofvengeance/make100-era-lyres-definitive-edition?ref=5qxaon
<+Ed_Jowett> Era: Lyres is a game about being an adventurer in a fantasy world.
<+Ed_Jowett> More precisely, it’s about NOT being an adventurer in a fantasy world – adventuring is dangerous, unsanitary and often boring!
<+Ed_Jowett> But adventurers get a lot of gold and glory when they return from their quests.
<+Ed_Jowett> So how do you get the gold and glory of being an adventurer without actually risking your life?
<+Ed_Jowett> Simple! You become a Lyre. Lyres tell stories of their “amazing adventures”, which “totally did happen” to eager audiences in Yarnolth.
<+HansOlavE> So! My product is Tale: The Role-playing game, a fantasy tabletop rpg
<+HansOlavE> (Link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1536938355/tale-the-role-playing-game?ref=ej0isd)https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1536938355/tale-the-role-playing-game?ref=ej0isd
<+HansOlavE> This is the link to the project, which runs out in a few hours.
<+HansOlavE> Tale is an easy-to-learn fantasy role-playing game that focuses on compelling storytelling and epic quests. It bears the fruits of almost two decades of quest creation and a fondness of story structure.
<+Graham_ArionGames> Good evening all
<+Graham_ArionGames> I am Graham Bottley, founder of Arion Games.
<+Graham_ArionGames> We are based in the UK and have taken a fairly old school approach to RPG’s, republishing Advanced Fighting Fantasy and Maelstrom, both cult british games of the 1980s
<+Graham_ArionGames> Our latest Kickstarter is Maelstrom Rome
<+Graham_ArionGames> This takes the major revision of the original Maelstrom game that we published in 2014 (Maelstrom Domesday) and gives it the ancient Rome treatment
