We are less than a week in and I am already feeling at a gut level the both the sheer joy and the sheer amount of busy work that Tony Bath gushes about throughout his writings on the Hyborian campaign. Anyone putting up there hand to play Assistant Deity out there haha?
From a game design perspective I am pleased as punch on how this is shaping up. The bottom-up, build-as-you-go approach which aims at answering the rigorous questions flying around so far is tough, labor-intensive work, but satisfying. I have been deeply impressed by the creative drive and hard work players have already put into creating their bands—and for pushing me to keep expanding the bounds of this project. Pat yourself on the back readers.
(BTW those interested in following the game as a spectator can find a sample of the first turn sit-rep and turn sheet here. For time-to-time I will be posting non-spoiler observations on what's going on in the strange new world. )
Tomorrow I will post about the four major play areas that this whole domain game experiment is exploring.
