Working again on The Wizard's Inheritance

I managed to save my computer (after a lot of reading on the internet).
I am still busy with finding a new apartment, but at least I can work again on my zine.
I wish I had more time, but I think that I will be able to publish it maybe next week.
(I just need to assemble everything and to drawn the back-cover) 
(here is the illustration for the cover without it frame)

Dwarf Cubemancer

Ok I did not really take the time to figure out how it work but the idea is that the player roll 9d6 and arrange them into a square to create spells. Each round he can turn a d6 or reroll a row. 

You can programm each triple number with a different spell (111, 222, 333, etc...)
Having multiple row of similar numbers in your square boost your spell effect. 
Series of number also have different effects.

Each cube matrix is unique, when you level up you can craft new cube stones to customize your cube matrix. You can also find new cube stones as treasures.

I guess that some combinaisons or patterns can be dangerous.

I need to move and I have lost my computer.

I was nearly done with assembling my next zine, The Wizard's Inheritance, but my hard drive crashed again and this time it look really dead. Since my last crash I backed up more frequently but I think that I have lost some progress (maybe a day or two).

I don't know when my computer will be repaired. But anyway I have to look for a new apartment so I don't know when I will be able to finish my zine or when I will have the time to work on creative stuff.

But I will try to drawn in my sketchbook to have drawings to scan when I will be operational again.

Using my zines


So how to use my zines since they are mainly composed of illustrations?

One interesting way, is to start by asking the players what they think the illustration is.
Use their answer as a hint to be on the same page, build on this or twist their answer around. 

To do this, it's important to show the illustration to the players and to let them interact directly with it.
Every details should matter (or not, some can simply be decorations). 
The players should be able to manipulate and interact with most of the details. 
Naturally you will have to improvise what their manipulation trigger but this is where the fun is. 


Some questions that details can trigger:

Slimy Drop Dice Table

I made a blank drop dice table and Eric Nieudan filled it with oozy & slimy goodness.
