The layout for the Aegean Quick Start book wasn’t created using InDesign or Scribus or any standard design tools. I don’t have any experience with either so I found them difficult to get started with. I do have a background in programming, web development and UX, so I made use of the skills and tools I already had.
Last weekend was UKGamesExpo in Birmingham. It was my first time there and I dove in head-first with a playtest of Aegean, the Greek myth inspired role-playing game which I’ve been working on for the past couple of years.
A few years ago I started a long running campaign of the Pendragon RPG. It’s a great game, following the life and death of King Arthur, Queen Guenevere, and the Knights of the Round Table. It focuses heavily on the medieval romance aspect of the legend — Le Morte d’Arthur and Chretien — and follows your character’s family through the generations.
