Q: How do you make God laugh?So, after I had the audacity to post my plans to release a new game last week, my kids finally gave me the second of the two bugs that I had been nursing them through. And while it made my poor little guys cranky and uncomfortable, it flat-out tried to murder me. But, after a week of agonizing pain, I am back to creating.
And I have finally got a draft up of Wreck for your consideration.open engine that I could easily adapt to my needs without reinventing the wheel.Cairn by Yochai Gal. It is narrative-focused, light, classless, and, as it is assembled from The Mark of the Odd and Knave, there was a surfeit of useful mechanics, content, and ideas already available.
For example, I built a solid character advancement system by taking a dash of MotO and a pinch of Knave. I drew inspiration for Mausritter for base building (and deviated quickly, but it was a great starting point.) I also used a charge method closer to Knave than vanilla Cairn does.
In other places you will see a few ideas from Kasimir Urbanski's Star Adventurer, And in places I lifted mechanics from the video game Subnautica and turned them into TTRPG mechanics.Midnight Zone. Which will in turn probably steal a lot of equipment and vehicles from Wreck I designed these projects to help each other in the development process
A: Tell Him your plans.
I hope to have a good chunk of the Eternal Ocean done next week. In the meantime, I will see if I can't offer you some fine content again, now that I am on the mend .
