Designing a Good, Old-Fashioned Pen-and-Paper RPG

Having grown up on "Dungeons & Dragons," I've been playing pen-and-paper roleplaying games for a good chunk of my life.  I've even tried my hand at writing adventures on a few occasions, one of which almost got published (hmm...perhaps I'll post it here someday). One thing I've always wanted to do, however, was actually design an RPG from the ground up.

As luck would have it, I was talking with my good buddy Vin Ferrante, creator of the comic "Witch Hunter," and we got onto the subject of RPGs.


We both agreed that "Witch Hunter" would make a great RPG property, and we decided to start working on a game whenever we had a chance.  The goal would be to create something that could be published in collected editions of the comic as a bonus for those who bought them.

So far we have some basic concepts mapped out, but I thought it would be cool to share our progress and design ideas from time to time here on the blog. This is a project that could take quite a while, and I'm hoping that  providing some updates here will help keep the momentum going.

Stay tuned!
