To Infinity III…

The last times I posted I talked about the basics of gameplay and a little about how the momentum of combat works in Infinitas; also, about some of the theory behind the gameplay. This time I wanted to talk about something quite different. Of the many creatures inhabiting the world of Infinitas, none are quite […]

From the Appendices

(I know, I know… I’m not managing my update schedule. I haven’t even been seriously trying. A cross-country move, new job, and additional child-watching duties due to being farther from family will do that…) Much of the nitty-gritty for Referees running Infinitas is in the Appendices. Here is a sample from the appendix on “Style […]

Justice

I have long wondered what it would be like to have an order (obviously preferably religious, but not by necessity) of people devoted to justice. Not social justice, because goodness knows there are enough people fanatically devoted to that particular heresy-turned-death-cult, but the actual rationally-understandable workings of justice.

If I had to guess (and I do), I would estimate there are another 10,000-15,000 words left in the project, mostly in background material, explanations for the tables that […]

A certain day this week is my birthday, so I thought I would just ramble a bit. The line in the Bible that I most strongly connect to is Matthew 5:6, “Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be satisfied.” We all hunger, whether we feed our hungers or not, […]

To Infinity…

Infinitas, an explicitly Catholic roleplaying game, is based on the mechanics from my preceding project Potentes Limen (which will be cross-pollinated and receive the love later; right now, however, I felt it necessary to work on openly Christian projects.) Basically, it is a system of d100 minus abilities and other modifiers, trying to get as […]

Knuckling Down

I have been: changing hours at work; out of work; looking for work; and starting a new (temporary) job that pays more over the last months while I have been gone. That does not even mention the brand new baby or the resurgent health problems that were the cause of the loss of work. But […]
