Some info on Unnamed Science-fiction Game

Yesterday I talked about my plans for designing a game and what system I would be using etc. One thing I mentioned is that there would be two settings, a fantasy themed one and a sci-fi themed one. In the fantasy themed gamed, named Easthalen, there would be a parallel twin technological themed world, it wouldn’t be sci-fi, more science fantasy (if that term makes sense), with an as yet unnamed sci-fi game (USG) being closer to what most people would consider being a true science fiction genre.

These two games are separate but semi-linked. I say “semi-linked” because there is some overlap between them and the two do share a history of sorts, even if that history is mangled and twisted and not apparent at first glance...

Easthalen – Introduction and Plan of Action

Long time followers of the blog and myself will be vaguely familiar with Easthalen.

I *did* plan on having a new feature regarding maps and images start today but I can’t get the software to work as I want it to, or I am doing something wrong.

It was going to be an updated version of my older map tiles, such as in the example below when I would be adding several new titles a month. But as mentioned, this plan is being put n the back burner for now. This was going to be expanded into a sci-fi modern version and other genres as time allowed, with tomorrow being the first starship “dungeon” tile etc.

Not sure what I’ll be posting tomorrow as of this moment, but I’ll try and find something.
