I have been sharing with you here the evolution of my work in progress on the Perdition System. Drafts after drafts, I posted a system in perpetual mutation for friends and followers to be able to give me feedback on it.
And I am glad I did, because last week I came to the conclusion that I needed to change everything. This is why I removed the previous drafts and work-in-progress of the previous versions from my platforms.
This decision came after a long conversation with friends, as well as students of mine, about the "mood" created at the gaming table. It quickly became obvious that playing cards are better than dice for a game that is offering a very "noir" setting.
Cigaret smoke, scotch, gun powder and ... playing cards.
And as far as Curse is concerned, cards will fit the Arcana mechanics perfectly. And it will fulfill my will to finally make that Tarot deck happen!
This offers a lot of opportunities and cool stuff to explore, such as poker hands, card colors and other things. The "perdition" aspect of the system can also be handled in various ways. Much more to come about that.
A good friend of mine is working on ideas and concepts right now, putting the system together, and hopefully I will be able to share the results with you soon!
This is an exciting new step!
