NEWS & ANNOUNCEMENTS / Richard's Birthday
« Last post by Enkeli on February 09, 2019, 04:27:52 AM »
Today Richard Tucholka would have turned 65 yrs old. In honor of his birthday we at Tri Tac Games wish to announce the upcoming 10th Anniversary Edition of Hardwired Hinterland.

We are following through on Richard's wishes that his games continue to evolve. Hardwired Hinterland 2nd edition is our tribute to staying true to Richard's ideas, yet expanding them to reach a new generation of gamers.  The new edition of his unique and enjoyable adventure game includes expanded Environ information on all existing areas - including new scenarios to discover in those Environs - along with New Environs to explore that have their own mysteries and quirks to expand the Hinterland mystique. 

We have added streamlined EZ rules to allow GMs to use the rule system they prefer, and provide a guide to converting The Hinterland setting to any rules. Flight mechanics and crystal use have been revamped to allow a better flow in the game.

Throughout the entire book the art has been updated when possible, replaced when necessary, to give a more enticing array of images.  All in all we are hoping that this version of Hardwired Hinterland will become as classic as the original. We will never forget Richard. May this newest expansion of the Tucholkaverse keep him ever fresh in your memories as well.

Look for this marvelous addition to the Tri Tac Games family of games this Spring!

I said I didn't need to post another example of the character sheet, but after adding color to the character art (Heromachine dot com) and some quick background notes I think it's worth doing so again.

Now a week and half out from the con, I am putting the finishing touches on the pregen characters.  While I liked the idea of an expanded form for the players to fill out for alternate worlds, I decided that would work best for a regular campaign -not so much for a convention game. 

Looking back over the forms from the 1992 Edition book, the Alternate Map form is just fine for letting the players jot down some quick notes about each world they visit.  In fact, just half the form is even better, as I can blow it up into a full size page and give them even more room for notes.  I filled out a GM version so I have an quick reference for each Prime portal and the alternates.

Thanks.  I am making some changes.  Don't know if I can get rid of the crab without extensive effort, though.

On a small screen at first glance the crab looked rather like a disembodied arm and hand, which was certainly confusing. I think that area with the sun, crab and aeroplane is a little cramped and busy. Personally I don't think the crab is necessary, as it adds complexity to the picture without additional meaning and the picture looks good without it.

The bottle gives a nice feeling of being a castaway. I think that HH works particularly well with a sort of weathered finish, like the paint on an old beach hut, making it clear that this is not your usual shiny SF or fantasy, so perhaps some careful muting of the colours might help to blend the different elements of the picture together.

Bi-planes in bottles battle giant crabs.  While the cover is striking, I'm not sure what the real perspective is.  My reaction would be to read the back cover and try and understand what I'm looking at. 

If a cover is there to attract attention, then I think what you have works.  The back cover is going to be important though to get me from curious to 'I need this'.
