Dime Adventures: Beginning the Design

In that time we’ve been involved in more campaigns than I can count and ran everything from Savage Worlds, to GURPS, to D&D, to Freemarket, to Starshield, to Marvel Super Heroes. We’ve ran numerous house settings as well, from a game of action-packed Indian myth that would become Against the Dark Yogi, to a sci-fi horror game that would become Shadows Over Sol....

Our Publication Process

Using this process, a new roleplaying game supplement passes through a series of stages before it is considered complete. As we recently concluded the funding period on our Shadows Over Sol Kickstarter, an influx of new backers is likely wondering just what to expect as the game goes through its final production. The various steps we use to produce a game are detailed below....
