Platinum Lion contacted me today about their “World of Trexlin” and “Xephyer” project posted on kickstarter.com. “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.
