First, table top rpgs, which is what these guys are making, are where you and some friends get together around a table, create a story and characters, and then go out and weave a story together. There are character sheets, dice, alcohol, and unhealthy food, which leads to incredible and living stories. Even if the storyteller, the individual writing the story for the players to interact with, would tell the same story to different groups (or even the same groups), chances are the way the story would go would be very different. Taverns would be avoided or frequented, orcs would be enslaved or slaughtered, and several other things.
Currently, this is becoming an indie field, like so many other artistic pursuits. A lot of the major players are recreating the same things, or they’ve become interested only in the money. Smaller publishers like Green Ronin have taken up this mantle to produce the games we miss. But on top of that, there are the true indie rpg makers, such as VOID.
As most of us know, indie struggles. We need all the support we can get. There are plenty of people trying to crawl over us, but, as Tough Mudder says, the best way to move up is to lift others to our level.
So I ask you to support these guys. If you can, please help out their Kickstarter. There are some awesome prizes in there. If you can’t help monetarily, then please look at their site, wander around, and get lost in their world. Support them with the knowledge you like what you see.
