The Game I’d Play Right Now

I’m having a lot of fun writing half-a-games at the moment. You know – getting the grist of a game together. I’m not really enjoying the layout/art section though I’m sure I’ll get round to it. Illusion is almost ready to go. Six requires about another few weeks. It’s all good.

I have a hankering to play a game though, something I’ve not managed in a couple of weeks.

Not all of these are co-temporal but bear with me.

Brotherhood of the Wolf meets Sharpe In the Company of Wolves for adventure in crumbling post-Renaissance cities darkened by the grime of a burgeoning Industrial Revolution whilst romance poets tread dark gargoyled halls of vast Gothic cathedrals.

Based on the dates below, I think a period around 1798 would be just perfect.

Benjamin Franklin: 1706 – 1790
First Piano: 1709
Steam Engine invented: 1712
First diving bell: 1717
