Kidz concept art sketches

I got a chance to visit the friend who’s been acting as an adviser on the art and he showed me some sketches he’s made of some of the ideas he has come up with.  Wow!  All are various “mysterious” scenes (complete with dialog or captions) and they capture the spirit of the game perfectly. I can’t wait to see how the girls turn these into real illustrations.

PDQ² – Some initial info

So I’ve been working on Kidz for the past six-months, trying to hash out the details for the PDQ rules which I think fit the feel and the aim of the game really well. In the past couple months though I’ve also been getting ready to run not one, but two different campaigns based on Evil Hat Productions awesome game Spirit of the Century, and well, FATE has rubbed off on me. In the past couple weeks I’ve suddenly seen a new way to “fix” some of the parts of PDQ that weren’t quite what I wanted for Kidz, not to mention take the system to a new level for my own play.  Thus, PDQ² was born…

PDQ² takes the solid mechanics of the PDQ System and integrates some of the features and fun of FATE 3.0’s Aspects in the form of what I’m calling “Quirks” (hence the Q²). It brings a new dimension to how characters are defined as well as the Hero Point economy works in the game. Needless to say, I’m really excited about the possibilites. Stay tuned for more information as I finalize the rules for alpha playtesting.
