So if I write a set of rules for a game that I can barely follow at this early point, that doesn't mean that any of the readers can follow, does it?I mean, I'm breaking down the rolls of the dice by each game second. OCD much? I have no idea if I'm headed in … Continue reading Oooops?
It's a good thing that I'm between day jobs at the moment, because the past week has been consumed with maps. Rather, the unfortunate demise of my maps. I backed up all of my map data to a remote drive and also burned a CD image before I switched from PC to Mac. When I … Continue reading Graphics and the domino effect
Hello! GenCon was a lot of fun. Exhausting, but fun. I sorta wish I was 10 years younger, but don't we all? Anyway, we had a successful test and some other discussions. There are a couple of changes I'm making to Perception rolls, and maybe the damage rolls on weapons. I'm going to eliminate the … Continue reading GenCon Lessons Learned

Hello, while I'm trying to get things squared away for GenCon (yikes!) I thought a podcast to describe the project might be more effective than a lot of text. Enjoy. Oh, and sorry about the background noise - I'll try to improve that after GenCon. MAP!
The initial draft of the World Book and Rule Book are just about where I want them for GenCon, but of course I'd love another month or two.... I am still looking for some graphics and there are some elements of the rules that are not yet nailed down very tight - but that's the … Continue reading Open Call – Play Testers NEEDED
For those of you who insist on the TL,DR version of everything, here you go. There is no TL,DR version. TIRRA is a continent and several related islands on a planet roughly earth-like. It is elf, dwarf, and orc-free. There are three races of humanoids and three races of lycanthropes. It has nearly twice the … Continue reading Why TIRRA?
