Fiction informs function — to paraphrase Keith Stetson in his excellent game, Seco Creek Vigilance Committee — was the guiding principle when I decided to raze Nocked’s existing game structures for the desktop release, salvage the good, and rebuild the rest from the ground up.
Free Men of the Bow, the Robin Hood-inspired adventure for 5th edition D&D by Andrew Schneider, is now available through the DM’s guild. Grab it now, and bring Robin’s derring-do and hilarious hijinks to your tabletop group in this 3-hour adventure for up to 5 characters!
I’m flattered to say that my iOS game, Nocked, was nominated for DragonCon’s Scif/Fantasy Indie awards. It’s me, some MMOs, and Beamdog’s Planescape port, so if you’re so inclined, grab a ballot and vote by August 31st!
Here’s a sweet taste of the Golden Arrow edition, coming later this year to desktop. Obviously, I’m running some graphics tests at the moment, and images and texts are still being tweaked... 😀
About 40,000 words worth (150 novel pages, give or take). The draft is in, the integration and revision of the entirety of the resource system is underway. Nocked for desktop, bigger and better, with changes kicked back to iOS.
Here we are, messing with the desktop layout — this is very much “work in progress”, but you get the idea.
