Welcome to The Hydraforge

On Galadir, legend tells of a place where the gods themselves were born unto the world.

That place is The Hydraforge.

What does that have to do with me or my blog? Well, my plans over the next little while have changed, and The Hydraforge has a lot to do with it. Most of you know that I'm hard at work on Book II of The Time Weaver Chronicles, and am currently on track for its release in January of 2013. Many of you have also been loyal readers and followers since I started writing and blogging, and I appreciate that. I've decided recently that it's time for a change in how I'm doing things, and I know y'all will understand.

I have a limited amount of spare time, and that time must be divided up among all my hobbies. Writing is but one of them. Role-playing games are another. The truth is, I've been a gamer a lot longer than I've been a writer, but I've been devoting more time to writing than gaming.

The Hydraforge is an effort to combine the two hobbies.

As a twenty-year fan of role-playing games, one goal I've always had for myself is to create a game system of my own that I could run my games in. The Hydraforge will be that system. A full campaign setting (Galadir), magic system, combat system, skill system, and so much more.

But here's the best part:

Everything I develop for Hydraforge will be available in digital form, completely free. PDF downloads of all materials can be obtained here from my website, and free eBooks from all major online book distributors. As I work on bits and pieces of it, I'll post it here for people to look at, evaluate, and give feedback on. In that way, perhaps we can all work together on it.

The setting guide will allow you to create stories and campaigns in Galadir. So you'll not only be able to read about Galadir, but also experience the world through your own character's eyes. There are untold corners of Galadir still to explore, and The Time Weaver Chronicles will only reveal a small portion of what there is to discover.

I want to thank everyone for their support thus far. I couldn't have made it this far without you. I hope you'll continue with me along this journey, because this is going to get very exciting!

If you're interested in seeing what Galadir has to offer, pick up a copy of The Time Weaver, Book I of The Time Weaver Chronicles today!

Thanks for reading!

I'm always interested in hearing what you have to say. Contact Me, I'd love to hear from you.
