Tales from the Floodplain

Dave’s kind words in our #RPGaDay podcast on the 22nd about the card based game I ran a few years ago, made me go to the the darkest depths of my hard drive to see if I could find the files. I’d remembered I had laid them out in Pages, back when it was good. I thought that might be able to convert them to PDF and put them online here.

I found them, and more than that I found I had already made a PDF file that put the system, the adventure and all the cards together. Dave insisted I had made it ten years ago. I said five, and it turns out to have been seven, the file is dated 2011. And therein lies my shame…

I remembered the circumstances of the games creation. On a whim, I decided to participate in a thing called GameChef. Turns out it’s happening again right now, you have a week (two weekends, so actually, nine days) to write and submit a game with a limited word count. Well, YOU don’t because it’s almost finished for this year. But I did, back in 2011. I wrote it, Dave, Andy and I played it, and finding it worked well enough (with me GMing at least), I made it look vaguely pretty and submitted it.

And then went off for a holiday, without properly reading how the judging happens. I came home to find and inbox full of messages chasing my options on the (five?) games I should have judged. It was over. I had missed the deadline. I felt really bad. And put the whole thing out of my mind, until Dave reminded me.

Yeah, thanks Dave.

But there was the PDF, sitting on my hard drive. So I might as well share it, here.
