Announcing Soldiers & Serpents

If you've been wondering what I've been up to since Rockalypse, the answer is that I have been forging entirely new ground - in terms of design, content, and partnerships!

Four-in-Hand is stepping into developing games within worlds by other creators, in this case David M. Taylor II. David is a musician as well as an author of numerous books, and we are working together to develop a roleplaying game set in the world of his ongoing series, Lucifer: Soldiers, Serpents, and Sin. You can learn more about his world here: secretsoftherealm.com

We have been developing this RPG for almost a year now, and we are excited about the bold new direction we've taken the design. Soldiers & Serpents is a card-based roleplaying game with a strong storytelling structure and prompts for improvisation. Although the mechanics are simple, there's a lot to talk about in how they work and how they came about. I'll be posting my thoughts about that in the coming months as we build towards a Kickstarter and full release.

The public beta of Soldiers & Serpents is now available for download on DriveThruCards and DriveThruRPG. We also hope to have a print-on-demand option for the cards themselves soon.
