Second Quarter 2013 Tab Update

Like the last few, it's been a busy quarter at Tab Creations....

The Open Beta Begins

A few days ago the open beta of Against the Dark Yogi officially started. This iteration of the beta is expected to last a couple months, then a second iteration will begin. You can check it out at the link above....

From the Alpha to the Beta

The private alpha test of Against the Dark Yogi will be coming to an end in the next week or two. This marks a turning point in the development of the game, as the first public beta is expected to launch shortly thereafter. Once the public beta has launched, the game (or at least certain parts of it) will become available for download on the Tab Creations website and for critique on the public beta forums. Anyone who has also contacted us in an interest in the game will receive an email about the release of the public beta as well....

Costumed Henchmen Updated!

Our one-shot theater-style LARP The Difficult Life of the Costumed Henchman was first released over two years ago, but we continue to refine it and make it better. With that in mind, we're here to announce that the game has just received another update and that update has been uploaded to the website! This now brings the most recent version of the game up to v1.3. This update clarifies the GM instructions, fixes a few typos in the game text and smooths out a few confusion points when running the game. From the game blurb:...

Saga Machine Solo Games

So in this post I'm going to take a step away from talking about Against the Dark Yogi for a while and turn my attention to a completely different topic that I've mulled over a bit in my spare time....

The Prana System

In the cosmology of Against the Dark Yogi the world is filled with cosmic energy. This seeps into everything and everyone. When it is in a living being it is called prana--life energy. And this energy isn't static; it is constantly flowing in and out of all beings with every action and every breath....

Setting Sheet: Bhurloka

I'm now happy to present our second Setting Sheet: Bhurloka. Like our first Setting Sheet (Tansaar), it's a page--both front and back--detailing a particular setting in brief. We plan to release a number of setting sheets, all leading up to the release of our final product for the first generation of Saga Machine games: Nexus Endtime....

Good & Bad Karma

One of the new systems in Against the Dark Yogi is the karma system, which replaces the luck system found in other Saga Machine games. The idea of karma is a concept that is very common in Vedic spiritual thought, and one that should also be familiar to most of us here in the West....

Performance Anxiety

A while back I went through the list of skills from first-generation Saga Machine games and put some thought into what skills are more useful or less useful than the others. Out of this search the Performance skill jumped out as one that seems lacking....

The Role of Stances

The first generation of Saga Machine games have a system of stances in the core combat module rules. The stance system is basically a stance that a character can take in combat that modifies her actions and other mechanical elements in some way....
