Hetairos: A Tabletop Adventure Game (Chat Thread)
« on: March 14, 2014, 12:14:56 AM »
I've started working on a small adventure game called Hetairos. It'll be set in a slightly odd Greek-fantasy setting, with a random map generation system, very simple combat rules, and a small set of character archetypes etc.

More updates soon!

What about GS&S? :(
Most effective elected official. Ever. (not counting Jubal)

He is Jubal the modder, Jubal the wayfarer, Jubal the admin. And he has come to me now, at the turning of the tide.

Khan: don't worry - this is a much smaller project and I basically have a working version already. It's only a 12 page document, unlike GS&S which is a good five to ten times that long and much more complex.

So I finished a working version yesterday, and played through two sample games with people - which both went very well :)

Again - more information soon when I've implemented tweaks!

Awesome, I hope I can talk DN into trying it with me, maybe even my sister if I sound convincing enough. :P

Two players would definitely be "hard mode" for the collaborative scenarios, you could still do the solo scenarios fine though.  :)
