Hey guys! My name's Mik and I posted here a bit a long while ago. I hope now that my life has become a bit more settled I can be more active here and in the community.
Since this is the "self-promotion" section I also wanted to let you know about a brand new publishing company, End Transmission Games (http://endtransmissiongames.tumblr.com/
), which has released its first print publication, SPLINTER. We had our official release at I-CON this year, and we're about to have a demo at the wonderful Fantasy Games and Hobbies in Mahwah, NJ, on the 19th. And if any of you are going to Gen Con this year, we'll be there as well.
SPLINTER is a full pen and paper roleplaying game using a unique d6 system."Earth, 2471 AD. The only thing that matters is The Game. Whether you’re a trained Professional — part actor, part athlete — or an Amateur, a conscripted gladiator, you are a Player. With an audience of millions watching, you enter The Splinter, a VR mega-dungeon.
The Splinter is an ever-changing megastructure that takes the form of a labyrinthine series of dungeon levels. At any time, any part of any level of the Splinter can transform, move, or disappear entirely. The denizens of the Splinter, taken on by Players as their Avatars, are equally strange; powerful shapeshifters who can “tune”: alter reality through will alone.
ON EARTH, only the rich and famous can afford freedom. The only way to get famous is to put on the best show you can… or die trying.
IN THE SPLINTER, everything is out to kill you. And when you die in the Splinter, you die on Earth.
Will you become a star, or a smear on someone else’s highlight reel?"
If you feel like giving a little love to a fledgling company, check us out. You can purchase our game here: http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/EndTransmissionGames
