EDIT - I've changed it again. This is the last time. There are now 6 livings instead of 12 and you have less starting equipment.
Hello gamebookers! A while ago, I wrote about a gamebook system that I was working on. Well, I've finally settled on a system and here it is. I've called it Cymerian, after the world it will take place in. I have ideas about the world, but I am going to save them for another post.
I have decided that I am going to build up the system and the world piece by piece as what I have been doing over the past few months is changing the system over an over again. I will never settle on the system until I have tested it.
This is the advantage with electronic writing now. If I come across something in a Cymerian gamebook that invovles a rules change, I can change the rules. If I write one gamebook and then another where people and places should be referenced in the first one, I can go back to the first gamebook and change it. If and when I feel that the rules, the world and all the gamebooks for Cymerian are complete, then I will release it.
Tell me what you think of the rules.
I will release a gamebook based on them at some point. The first one will be set in a relatively safe town so your character will be able to base their operations from there - they can rest and buy most items as well as do a few small quests to gain their first experience points. Then I might write gamebooks for other places. Then I might link them together with travelly bits. I might do this after Windhammer though.
Also, have you booked your tickets for Fighting Fantasy Fest and Dragonmeet?
