What are you looking for?:
Some years ago, I had an idea for a different kind of game system, one that could be played on three different levels. I have played the Sim games and Kingmaker games where you created cities and empires, board warfare and tactical games have always been quite popular in many genres, and RPGs pretty much started the gaming craze. Inspired by all of these, I sought to combine them all into one system, which I am almost ready to go online with in the fall.

I am looking for a stalwart group of gamers who can help me play test the system as I finish the individual elements. You must be flexible and experienced with RPG-style games, that is to say, dice-and-paper games. Some knowledge and/or experience with tactics and strategy will be handy: military or wargaming background a definite plus. People with an interest and/or solid knowledge base in history, the military, political science, philosophy or theoretical physics are also welcome, but such things are not absolutely necessary.

Oh, and you must love science fiction.

This property is the ultimate science fiction gaming experience. And since I believe that gaming is a form of interactive storytelling, it is also a platform for many tales yet to be told about a galaxy full of strange lifeforms, their hopes, dreams and fears. As a writer myself, I intend this to be a storytelling platform with over 20,000 years of prehistory leading up to the game setting and another 20,000 years of storyline already more or less
About Me
Biography:
Strange visitor from another planet, I believe life is funny if you are paying attention. My entire professional, educational and personal life are tied up in designing this game, right now, but we can never forget that it is all about the playing.

Cut my baby teeth on D&D, have thoroughly enjoyed Star Frontiers and ICE/Role Master and free-form RPGs. Gaming is a form of interactive storytelling and I was born to be a story teller.
