Kickstarter Project: World of Trexlin and Xephyer

July 19, 2010 | | Comments 1

Platinum Lion contacted me today about their  “World of Trexlin” and  “Xephyer”  project posted on “World of Trexlin” is a system-neutral campaign world with races, regions and plot hooks designed to aid a DM. Platinum Lion’s “Xephyer” provides rules and cards for a poker-like fantasy  betting game that plays stand-alone or as part of an RPG encounter.  I actually heard about this game some time ago when  Platinum Lion contacted me and asked for my thoughts on “Xephyer.” I provided some feedback and  happily prevented at least one company from using red and green colors on the cards for the color-blind among us. Hurray!

That said, I occasionally get contacted on a by aspiring game designers seeking my feedback. I give some comments to every one, but honestly none of the games  have seen the light of day yet.  These games only earn a mention on this site when I believe they have enough drive and skill to actually release a game in the near future.

That said, Platinum Lion’s pitch on kickstarter is quite good and  inspires confidence in me this project will take off.
