I have returned from Gen Con, though I was there mostly as an Accidental Survivor and the dude behind Sword’s Edge rather than as the dude behind Sword’s Edge Publishing.
Of import for Sword’s Edge Publishing, another game of Centurion: Legionaries of Rome went by without a hitch. I am confident now that the rules are robust – in the sense of being durable rather than complex – and that they will do what I want them to do.
Secondly, Nefertiti Overdrive: Mythic Egyptian Wuxia also worked well. It has kinks that need to be ironed out, but I think this is something I want to Kickstart at some point. The question becomes: do I release as a package with Head Crushers and Direct Action, or do I find a way to get it out there into the world on its own. Josh Jordan’s Heroine is 60 pages, and I think that is a great book. Maybe I’m focusing too much on page count rather than just putting out the right product.
Correction, I am focusing too much on page count rather than just putting out the right product.
I still believe I will Kickstart a short story collection first rather than another RPG, but I might get cold feet as the date approaches. My success with an RPG Kickstarter would certainly help propel another RPG, though I’m not so certain about a short story collection.
