Emperor tortoises have walked the earth since before the rocks were cool. No wizard has ever managed to capture one, not even the Seree—until Nauz found a horrid way to breach the ancient shell. But now what? Will Nauz' folly interrupt His Eternal Progress?

Fantasy campaign setting idea - a world that's tidally locked—or nearly so. Every year, the migratory world gains 20 leagues of 'dawnlands' in the east, opening up rich, new possibilities. But change is never smooth, especially on the western border that faces the slow creep of night.

We’re so close guys!

I don’t have many followers. Like, at all. I gotta count on the cool kids like you all to reshare.

There are a few games out there that do scoundrel space opera. Lots of them do it well. But they don’t do sci-fi like this.

This game does things different by doing hard sci-fi debtrunning with modern mechanisms and philosophies.

It’s more than just D&D or [insert indie hack here] in space. It’s fucking spot on hard science fiction, designed to be science fiction, that you don’t even have to try very hard to get science fiction results with.

Free Spacer is IMO the best hard sci-fi game you can get your hands on.

I wholeheartedly believe that.

But we need this Kickstarter to fund first.

We need just under $4,000 in 3 days to cross the finish line and get this game printing and available.

Help us out.
-John

Disclaimer: I did not work on this game. I am close friends with Christoph and Lisa, and I have had the privilege to playtest the game and do a little art for them. I don’t just want this to succeed to help out some friends. I really believe in this game.

Hey neato, a playable Torchbearer class for Vinteralf!
My first Torchbearer class: The Vinteralf Exile. A tribute to +Michael Prescott's Stellarium of the Vinteralf, the Exile is a hunter and astronomer from the Nothernmost edge of the world.

Thanks to Michael Prescott for inspiration and advice, and to +Jared Sorensen +Owen O., and +Shane King for making character classes so cool that I wanted to try it out myself.

Gauntlet Con 2018 is coming up (Oct 18-21), and I'll be running a couple of playtest sessions of Too Good To Be True (PbtA mecha) there.

There's also a crapload of other systems being run, so if you're curious about something, this is a good chance to try it out (in some cases with the author).

For a late-empire Seree sorcerer, a secluded forest vale must have seemed like the perfect place for a home away from home. Build a hall to entertain your guests, have some quiet evenings with your fiancée. Hunt boar, finally catch up on those endless Lycaeum periodicals. Maybe turn the servants into goo to showcase your automaton-building skills?

After all, you've got to keep busy.

Some more playtesting of 2G2BT means that parts of it are going back up on bricks!

Dungeon World Classic Conversion Notes for Tannoch: Rest of Kings
Tannoch: Rest of Kings is another one of Michael Prescott's excellent adventure sites I like to pull out of my bag for Dungeon World. Most of my conversions are based on posts on the Dungeon World Tavern by Mark Chance. He ran this adventure site for his son as a single person Dungeon World Adventure a few years back, I was careful to collect his posts and add them to my notes.

The Dungeon World conversion notes:
