This week's Friday Five features, Den Patrick. If you follow his blog, you'll know that Den's a man who's worked a game or two in his day. No surprise that he's now off brewing up a fantasy world for the big guns at Gollancz.
We cover some of our favorite settings: console, tabletop, PC and (randomly) CCG... what are yours? Tell us about your game world of choice in the comments.
When I’m not being Den Patrick I’m usually having fun being someone else, someone else that is somewhere else...
Iron Kingdoms. Before the Warmachine and Hordes existed (both superb tabletop war games) the Iron Kingdoms were home to the Witchfire Trilogy, a campaign using the 3rd edition Dungeons and Dragons rules set. I was completely hooked and ran a heavily modified version of the campaign. Two of my players are none other that the very creators of this fine blog. Iron Kingdoms isn’t steampunk in the classic sense, it doesn’t hark back to a fictional Victorian age where the Empire is held aloft by coal and binary code. Instead IK is a ‘full metal fantasy’ where steam-powered technology stands shoulder-to-shoulder with magic, good sharp steel, and ranged black-powder weapons.
