Have you ever made in further material for this game or moved onto something else?

No, I haven't. Honestly it never occured to me, as it was meant to be just a small self contained hack. I may put together an extra content pack as a fun exercise though if there is interest, maybe more random tables and such.

Cool. Would love to see them. 


This game is great!  A perfect companion to Nate Treme's wonderful 'In the Light of a Ghost Star.'  Excellent work, Mr. Kent!


Thank you so much for your support and kind words! Very much appreciated!

Hi Jacob - quick question - when a spell is cast the first time each day, does the caster need a successful Wizard roll to make it happen, or does it just happen (no Wizard roll necessary) that first time?  The second casting of the day requires a successful Wizard roll or else the spell fails to happen and the spell's medium is destroyed.  But for the first casting of the day, I'm assuming that no Wizard roll is needed to cast the spell.  Is this correct?  Thanks for your guidance!


You are correct! The idea being you risk it all with further uses, but the first use per 24 hr period requires no roll.


Perfect - thanks Jacob!  'In the Dark of a Fallen Empire' - it's such a cracking good game!
