Sci-Fi RPGs
Sir, we're entering the Void.

The Glass Sea of Trinity

There was a recent article on Gnome Stew called Quick and Dirty Location Template. The article presents a template on how to create a quick blurb on a location for you your game with relative ease. This is an excellent template that I plan on using to detail locations for may game before writing up larger articles. Below is one of the locations I created in less than five minutes.

Name: Glass Sea of Trinity

Ambiance: A harsh desert covered with jagged chunks of fused glass.

Gaining Momentum

or as I like to say, "Going into Overburn."

Just a quick note. I've recently procured the aid of a couple of friends to assist me with the Overburn RPG. I am hoping with the new infusion of Blood Burners, we can make some headway into The Burn. I would like to take this time to welcome these two to The Burn and I hope their addition bears fruit.

To expound on what I'm doing here I want to set some goals I have for the project. This is inspired by Rob Lang's article on designer notes for the Icar RPG, of which I have bee a long time fan.

An Auspicious August

So today starts a new month, and to that end, I endeavore to get back into the swing of things. I am back in my house, inventoring my gaming collection. I still have a lot of boxes and unpacking, but at least now, I can see the torch light glinting off the dragon's hoard at the end of the tunnel. Although my internet connection does not appear to be working (yet), I plan to continue to work on what I can, as time provides. There is alot that I have on my plate this month, so here's an overview.

Follow Us On Facebook

For some reason I find this extremely funny. I find the use of Facebook a diametrical battle within my soul. On one side, I believe the use of Facebook to be akin to selling out to mass appeal and low-end production. The other side believes that one should use any means necessary to reach your target audience. Since I'm not trying to make any money off this, I think my soul will be safe if I use the current cash cow of social marketing.

A Little History

Welcome to Omega Rising.

If you've been here before, thanks for coming back after so long. I've spent so much time in the Void, it's nice to see friendly face. If you haven't been here before, let me give you a little history on the site. Omega Rising started out as my personal expansion of the 1980's Science Fiction RPG, Star Frontiers. The name is a play of the original rule book that was named 'Alpha Dawn'.
