Narrative gaming

While the next big project is still being decided, I have a few side projects in the works.

One of them is going to be inspired a lot by the Mythic RPG system and Matrix games, with a tad of Kriegspiel thrown in for good measure: A more Narrative, conversation driven wargame.

We tested the basic framework last night with my 7 year old, and he managed to clear out a German held village in Normandy like a champ.

I'll share a bit more once things are more concrete.

Definitely will be a thing better suited to cooperative gaming, GM'ed scenarios as well as imminently suited to solo gamers.

It'll probably end up being a "micro game" rather than a full blown thing, but we'll see how things go.
