This Rulebook gives the reader the tools to create this world. A world where magic, monsters, and swordplay are reality..... in the real world.... in your back yard! If you thought that the "virtual" world on that new video game was good, you've got to try the next hi-res adventure!
The Rulebook covers topics like:
-how to build a sword - it's made of soft foam, so you can safely hit each other!
-how to make spell packets - you throw them at your opponent when "casting" a spell. If it hits, they're in trouble! It's also soft!
-a set of very well thought out spell rules that play well in -real- -live- combat
-maps and documents that describe the world
-how to write adventures for your friends
-details that make it all come together
-lots pictures and drawings of players in action. It's rather a pretty book!
For you experienced tabletop GMs: This gaming system works because they've found ways of allowing a large number of players to roam around in the same world. New players are in the same world as uber-players. The world works.
I've been to many weekend-long events where we played the whole time and all I can say is "Wow!" They also have a web page, [...] that you might check out. For a jumpstart on playing, you might do well to find someone who's played this kind of stuff to get you started. There's lots of folks on the net that can help. Or just get a bunch of friends together and let 'er rip!
