The Bits & Pieces Article Series

Published on 29.06.2016

The equinox setting has been out for a while and we're eager to publish more material to support it. As a small press publisher, our team is dedicated to the cause and is—while working on source material and adventures—creating a series of articles we'd like to release as an ongoing monthly series of supplemental game material. 

All articles will be made publicly available to spread the word and keep the equinox community growing. However, we need support to finance the artwork in this series. And that's where you come in! Your faith in us will help building the ongoing budget and will provide you with several benefits!

The Elements of the Game

Published on 02.06.2016

FU GamesIn this article, we will be exploring the core elements of our FU-based games, Equinox (using the Equinox Storygame Guide) and Earthdawn: The Age of Legend. We will identify the thoughts behind the game design, going beyond the unique resolution mechanics that only appear to be at the center of it all.

When composing adventures in traditional roleplaying games, many gamemasters approach design from an event-centered point of view, trying to arrange events happening in the adventures into a pre-determined order. However, even with a few triggers and if/else combinations, the structure of adventures written this way is very rigid. Such a rigid structure makes it hard for the gamemaster to adapt the adventure to his players’ needs, often leading to frustration when railroading them to his intended goal or shutting their ideas down until they have one that meet his line of thinking.

Sounds familiar? We have all been there at some point.
