Are you still working on Volant, Clash ?


Hi, Sean!

It's in Alpha test now. When that is done, I will make any changes indicated by the Alpha test and distribute it in Beta form. When that is finished, I roll in any changes from the Beta testers' feedback, and finish it off. In its current state, it is completely playable, but lacks a lot of explanations and examples, and the little touches, as well as most of the illos.

I'm also putting the last changes to IHW: Pigboats, and starting work on Lowell Was Right! - I always work on two or three projects simultaneously, but overlapping, so I am never in the same stage on any of them.

Saturday, we set up for Phase 2 of the Alpha playtest. This phase we are testing the bird creation and aerial combat systems, and the ship creation and combat system. We created a two region nation - Torsina, with the regions Tortuga and Messina - with some fun quirks. Messina, for example, is an Amazonian culture where the women do the fighting and the men are scholars. The PC Association is the Order of the Glorious Sun, a religious order of knighthood based in Messina, so the PCs are preponderantly female. The religion was also created - Illuminism - with a dualist light and dark goddess. We created a large ship as well for the Order, and two flights of Birds - Ravens and Cranes. Then we created characters. This was the easiest thing, as you just slam together a few templates and you are mostly done. Equipping the character takes far longer than creating it, especially with a rich character!

I will not be posting any APs. I just wanted to inform those who were curious where we are in the process.

Cheers Clash - and if you need an extra Beta-testing group at any point, my players would be up for it.

Awesome! Thanks, Sean! Beta testers will be very welcome. In a month or so I should know whether these rules will fly or not. :D

I've sketched a Volant sky ship, to give an idea of what it looks like to my players:

Great sketch - I like how for a large ship it still looks elegant rather than bulky.
