View Full Version : Story Realms

Hi all, I'm kind of 'down-under' at the moment but I've been spending my time on a board for a game.

I know there's many members who (want to) play an RPG with their kids and I really think this game is awesome for that (ok, I'm a bit biased :). As a GM I always tried to keep rules loose and throw in fun/weird objects just to see how creative the party would handle. This resulted in the most memorable / fun RPG nights. In my opinion Story Realms creates the perfect setting for this playstyle.

Anyway... what about the map. I'm creating the 22x22 inch board with a loads of details visualizing the world of Storm Hollow where the action takes place. Below you can find a WIP sample of the board (just a small piece of the board). There's more on Boardgame Geek. If you want to read more about the game you can check the following links.

- Little Metal Dog Podcast (http://littlemetaldog.podbean.com/mf/web/b96b8v/LMD_Episode44.mp3)

Soon they will launch a Kickstarter and I'll post an update. I really hope this gets funded as the team developing this is SO passionate about the game, it makes working with them a real treat.

cheers, DJ

Thanks guys! Must say that the art director (Dann May) is a blessing to work with, as he really helped shape the map. I just learned the kickstarter has launched :D It all looks so great, I'm really proud to be part of this. Possibly later I can post more details on the board/map, but for know you can check out Story Realms at Kickstarter (http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/springboard/story-realms). cheers! DJ
