It feels like we’re still in the middle of writing it, but in reality the Broken Rooms RPG is almost finished. I’ll be interested to see what my final (personal) word count is, but I suspect it’s upwards of 75,000 words. That’s before editing, so it may not all make it in, but I think the book is going to be around 125,000 words when it’s all said and done.
Here’s the first four or five pages of the RPG, the introduction chapter. We may add a few things to it, specifically around explaining a bit more about the system, but it’s more or less as you see it.
The artwork is a photograph of one of the other writers that I took using his nice DSLR camera. We’ve been running photographs through a top-secret process (an iPhone app, actually) to get this kind of abstract style.
Let me know what you think. I’ll be posting more about the game, its history and its development over the next month or so.
