Gaming Vs. Cancer Results are in! We are proud to show how gamers are making a difference in the fight against cancer each day. £5315.18 were raised for Cancer Research UK. The organizer went on to thank us for our prize donation… No, Stephen Kissane and the volunteers who organized Gaming Vs. Cancer, thank you! We are proud to be in the same community.
Gaming vs. Cancer November 11 -12
I think we can all agree; cancer sucks. We are doing our part to help support something we love <gaming> to fight something we hate <cancer>. If you are in the area of Southampton, UK this long running event has proven to be a powerful way to play games like a hero against this serious baddie. We’re sending some autographed Cyberpunk 2020 books and some signed replicas of the original Omni Kismet (Mike Pondsmith) card from the original Netrunner game as prizes for this event. Thanks so much to the organizers working to make this possible.

Hey there everyone,
Cody here! I’ve managed to un-glue my face from my layout monitor for a little bit to write another dev note! I don’t have a lot to talk about as far as system at the moment but I can say that we are so deep in layout that I think I see glimpses of light at the other end. Months of changing border colors and retyping introductions and we’re almost there! In the mean time we’ve been hard at work in the last stages of layout and writing the last lore bits. We’ve sent out play test pamphlets to a lot of wonderful people around the globe to get their input and have them try their best to break and exploit the system. So far, feedback has been very positive and our brave play testers are generally having a great time. Like I said, past that I don’t really have a ton to say at the moment. Layout tends to be a long and boring process. We did get to go to Pyrkon in Poznan, Poland where we met up with a bunch of great people and got to do a Q&A with the fans over in Poland. The convention was amazing and I’d go back in a heart beat. Anyhow, it’s time for me to go back to the dark pits of the Talsorian Layout Dungeon. If everything goes smoothly, I’d like to get on some time late next week and do another dev note about our progress and where we are at the moment. Until then, best wishes to all!
Hey there, everyone! It’s been a busy time for us here at Talsorian. Last week we were running around the convention floor at the GAMA Trade Show, scoping out the industry and talking to distributors and retailers about the Witcher RPG! Back at the office, things are going well and the book’s layout is coming along smoothly. I want to talk about the world state part of the GM section. One of the great things about setting the PNP RPG in-between the settings of the Witcher 2 and the Witcher 3 is that the setting can change based on the events of the first 2 Witcher video games. I know that I love to reference things that happened in my play-throughs. It allows you to continue your story that you played through in the Witcher video games. And if you haven’t played any of the Witcher video games, this small section allows you to customize the world that you play in. All of the major world decisions are listed with their outcomes.
Granted, this choice can be difficult. Describing world lore in other sections of the book without mentioning any of the direct outcomes is a bit challenging, (especially when you have to describe the fate of an entire region). But we feel that it would be cheating to just decide on one world state and throw all of the other options to the four winds. If you played the video games we want you to be able to play in the world that you built and if you didn’t play the video games we want you to be able to customize your world and decide how the events of the first two Witcher games unfolded.
