EN World Review – Pre-Release Review of Story Forge Cards

storyforge coverGreetings Gentle Readers!  I hope that this week is finding you all well, and that you are all looking forward to a pleasant weekend in just a few days!

My own week has been going well, and I am keeping busy bouncing between writing projects.  Besides my own blogs, I have been working on some ideas for a new game system and setting – which is not fantasy role-playing I might add – as well as trying to complete the novel I started during the National Novel Writing Month.  My “Victorian-esque-Post-apacolyptic-Seampunk-Gothic-Horror-Dystopia” novel, with a working title of Sanguis Noctem, continues to move forward, and I have high hopes that I’ll have it completed before the start of summer!  What I do with it at that point is up for some speculation, but I do intend to publish it in some manner, even if it is only done as a Print-On-Demand Web release.

All of which brings us to the topic of today’s review on EN World, a new and (hopefully) upcoming release of Story Forge Cards!  These cards assist in creating not only detailed stories and plotlines for use in role-playing games, novels, or screenplays, but they also can be used to create characters as well, with quite detailed and often surprising backgrounds driving their lives.

Pre-Release Review of Story Forge by Kelp Entertainment

I think these cards have some great potential to assist role-players of all genres and game systems, and doubly so if you enjoy not only playing RPGs but also write fiction on the side.  The tarot-like layout system for different types of character and plot development is actually really cool, and I think even the “story poker” game using these cards will have some appeal on slow gaming nights.

Although the cards are just a concept in a Kickstart project for the moment, I think they are worth consideration as a really good role-playing tool.  I wish the author the best of luck in the next six weeks to achieve his goal and see these cards published!

So until next blog… I wish you Happy Gaming!
