Well, I've decided it's time for me to stretch my creative muscles and get down to business on something. The best part: you, my readers (supposedly there's about 50 of you out there, so...there oughta be a little feedback), get to help me decide what that something will be. I've got a lot of RPG ideas buzzing around in my head, and I'm ready to develop one of them into a full-fledged RPG. Not to mention, Wyatt's Copper Coins! RPG has me hankering to try something similar.
The best part is, this RPG will be entirely free. Free as in "free beer", and free as in "the land of the free and the home of the brave". I'm intending to use the Open Gaming License to distribute it, but if any of my audience has other thoughts on that, let me know.
That said, I guess you gotta have a list of options to choose from. At the moment, here's how they stand...
Guns and Grit, a simple system designed around d4s and low randomization. It's a resource allocation system, and the main setting is the Wild West, or a version of it.
Bloodline Blades, a high-fantasy action system which features warriors who have innate elemental powers, using a unique dice pool system to model these inherited abilities.
Paper Empires, an RPG where you play out the rise (and maybe fall) of an empire, inspired by the Civilization series.
So, let the votes ring in! I'll close up the poll after a week, and announce (officially) the winning game. Then, I'll be giving status updates on the project, culminating in a downloadable PDF release.
