Looking For Adventure?

Featured

Over two hundred years ago, the greatest empire mankind had ever witnessed fell, a victim of its power-mad rulers, the High Men of Gran Daedole. From the ashes of the old empire, new nations of elves and men have arisen, vying for dominance over all of the lands of Aldemak. From the young democracy of Arkterra to the isolationist ethnic state of Ar-Urarkan, freedom is the word on the lips of many. But in the heated sands of the south, an amoral nation’s ambitions grow, while in the north the people of the fallen empire scheme to restore themselves to glory; and far beneath the notice of allforgotten forces stir, awaiting the time when their prison walls will fall and the world will be theirs once more.

 

So begins your story …

 

Welcome to Masters of Creation, a fantasy pen and paper role-playing game set in the imaginary land of Aldemak, a war ravaged continent that many strange and exotic cultures call home. Masters of Creation focuses on providing simple rules for engaging in collaborative storytelling in a fantasy role-play environment. The Masters of Creation system is extremely simple to learn, easy to use and designed to be readily understood by new and old gamers alike.

 

In Masters of Creation, you are not limited to a particular class or party role. Instead, you develop the character you want to play by using descriptive phrases and specialized skills to create a truly unique play experience each time you create a new character. In addition, Masters of Creation does away with many role-playing conventions, such as experience and weighted attributes, while introducing new mechanical features such as reactive skill and social engagement rules. Moreover, Masters of Creation does not try and force you to play a fighter, mage, or thief type of character; the core rulebook contains rules for making engineers, alchemists, diplomats and any number of hybrid characters – in this game, you play the type of character you want to play.

 

We hope you enjoy your time playing Masters of Creation. Be sure to check out our forums for more information and the latest news regarding the game. Oh, and if you have any questions, feel free and contact us either on the forums or directly! We’re happy to answer your questions!

 

Have fun! The adventure awaits!

An Update!

Hey there:

Last year, I had the idea to make a pen and paper RPG by using the collective talents of myself and two friends to launch a small independent venture. It was the first time I had ever tried to run a commercial  venture of this sort. Certainly I learned a few things along the way. One major issue we have had is working with everyone’s schedules. In the end, it became impossible to meet everyone’s needs, and a few changes had to be made. The result is the following:

  • Desiree will be leaving as lead artist to focus on a career in graphic design. I wish her the best of luck. I will pick up the art duties, and probably begin illustrating late spring/early summer.
  • I will be working to restructure the design of this website. There have been a few connectivity and readability issues that I have been aware of, and I intend to clean those up in time.
  • The book will be published, but rather than focusing on a product line, given the size of the task and limited development team, I expect it to be a stand alone product. I have incorporated some additional text into the finished version.

So, there we have it. Over the course of the following months there should be some changes to the website layout. As illustration is completed, I will post elements of it on this site to showcase the new direction in which the project is headed, artistically.

Until next time,

Something in the works …

I know it has been a while since we’ve updated. Sorry about that.  I’ve been busy developing something to help promote the project, and I was hoping to have an update a few weeks ago announcing what I was working on. However, given the ambitious scope of what I am planning, I’ll need a little more time to get the next major update out.

On the bright side, the full pre-production text of the game’s core rulebook remains available for review. If you’re looking to find something to play with a few friends, take a look here:

Open Beta Continues

Just a reminder that the full current iteration of the rules is available online, for free. Want to start a game? Just go here.

The finished product will have an expanded table of contents, an index, more art, and internal links to make it more browser friendly. It will also feature all of the promised Kickstarter content. I’ll have more information as the development continues.

Open Beta

Hello folks! A quick reminder – in order to get more people play-testing the game before publication, the beta test materials have been opened to the public! You can now review the draft text of the game before publication. Take a look through, have a go at playing it, and let us know what you think! We want as much feedback as possible before we go to print.

You can access all the test materials here.

Good Gaming!

Happy Fourth Everyone!

Happy Fourth, everyone! If you are outside the United States, pretend that I am referring to the fact that our Kickstarter campaign is already one fourth of the way to funding. That fact is worth a few fireworks to us.

Just a reminder (in case you missed it) the game’s draft text can be read and digested (in the contemplative, as opposed to the gustatory, fashion) for just $1. Consider giving it a look if you do not have a holiday to get to … or maybe even if you do.

Happy Holidays/Mid-Week,

- Jim

Ading It All Up

Hello folks!

We’re one week in to the Kickstarter campaign and that means that we need to get moving on the media blitz! There should be an updated video at the latest by the end of this week. In the meantime, I would like you to meet Blinky! Blinky is going to help us turn the internet into our own personal shoggoth. (You may have to look that one up.) If you would like to support us, and you are finding funds difficult to come by, just post this little guy somewhere on your site! He’s relatively innocuous and oh-so-clickable.  We should have more art coming along shortly to preview.

In the meantime, keep an eye on us. ;)
