Was our last update really in January? Wow! That's been a long time. Sorry for the radio silence!
Despite the lack of communication, we've been hard at work, making steady progress on our latest game. What game, you ask? We've mentioned it before, but now it finally has a finalized title and a logo. We've been working on Age of Ambition!
Age of Ambition is a fantasy roleplaying game set on a world rapidly leaving the traditional fantasy milieu behind. It's the game of forward-facing fantasy! Where the heroes not only plunder tombs, but help guide the world to a brave new era of promise or peril. Invent new technologies or magics! Dethrone a tyrant king and usher in a republic! Make your fortune trading up and down the coasts! The world is changing, just be sure you can live through the consequences.
Right now the game is in the middle of its sixth playtest. This will be the final one that is entirely internal. For our next playtest, due in late April, we plan to open up the game to our generous Patreon backers and select playtesting groups. The playtest after that, which will likely be sometime in the summer, we plan to open up the playtest to the public.
Writing for the game, meanwhile, continues. The rules are all in place, but there is still much work to do writing setting material, character options, stat blocks and generally polishing the draft text.
More information about the game is sure to be posted in the coming months! For now, good gaming!
