A Work in Progress

Jeff Meta, Philosoraptor News Leave a Comment

Well. It’s been a while. I just took advantage of a Cyber Monday special to get my hosting back into shape and re-register this domain. Philosoraptorgames.com is, if not in business exactly, at least back on the Web. I don’t plan on doing much to publicize this site until I’m a bit closer to having something I think is commercially viable. …

The Real First Printing

Jeff Philosoraptor News Leave a Comment

Just a quick blog post to note that the Fantasy Infinity project has reached an important milestone: The first physical copies of the game now exist. I took the files as they currently exist, did quick mockups of the covers (which actually turned out pretty well considering I’m not a graphic designer – one can be seen above), and took …

May the Cores Be With You

Jeff Downloads, Fantasy Infinity Previews Leave a Comment

The Fantasy Infinity project is approaching a rather exciting milestone. Some people who know and game with me in person already know what I mean, others will just have to find out through this site when the time comes. As for right now, I think the time has come for another large, meaty preview of the game. The material I’ve …

Weapon of Choice

Jeff Downloads, Fantasy Infinity Previews Leave a Comment

I had some trouble deciding which of several sections of the Core Rulebook I should highlight next. Eventually I looked at the bits I was choosing between and went “why not all of them?”. Most were pretty short anyway, or at least the piece I wanted to highlight was. So, you’ll find below six not-previously-public excerpts from the Core Rulebook, with …

Are You Experienced

This is hot off the presses – like, I literally just finished writing it yesterday. Originally this was going to be part of the GMing chapter, but I’ve decided it makes more sense in an earlier, player-facing part of the book. So, this material will slot into chapter 2, which I previewed in this post, near the end, just before …

Crystal Memories (part 3)

Jeff Final Fantasy, Personal 2 Comments

Let’s start part 3 with a quick explanatory note that probably should have been in part 1. Those unfamiliar with the Final Fantasy franchise may not realize that successive Final Fantasy games are not sequels in the usual sense, and indeed the whole thing is not really one franchise, but several. Each main “numbered” Final Fantasy game takes place in …

Festival Season

Jeff Meta, Personal Leave a Comment

Since I see people are visiting this blog at a surprising clip even when I don’t add new posts (in particular, there was an unexpected spike late the week before last), I thought I’d put up a quick personal note for the benefit of these visitors. I’ve been busy lately, with a sweltering, exhausting Winnipeg Folk Festival followed by a …

On comments

Jeff Meta Leave a Comment

A quick note on comments. This is in addition to the main thing I’ve been saying about them, which is “I’d really like it if more people were making them”. The way things are currently set up, your FIRST comment will be held for moderation until I approve it manually. Therefore, it may not appear for a few hours depending …

Crystal Memories (part 2)

Jeff Final Fantasy, Personal 2 Comments

Before I resume the narrative from last time, I’d like to draw people’s attention to the comment I’ve added to the Fragments on Aperion post. This seems to be easily the post so far that readers are finding the most interesting and thought-provoking, and a few have discussed it with me. However, they’re doing it in person or on social …
