What are you guys playing?
What do you want EpicTable to support?
Obviously, people are going to be playing D&D 3E and 4E, but what else? At GenCon, I seemed to hear a lot about Shadowrun. Pathfinder RPG seems a given. FATE, Spirit of the Century, Dresden Files.... Other indie games?
One of my major goals is to make it easy for you to be able to adapt EpicTable to your needs. To that end, I've been consuming just about every game book I can get my hands on, looking for interesting mechanics that require something I've not thought of. For example:
I'm working on character sheets and game mechanics, so there's no time like the present to let me know what you're playing.
Okay, so someone's going to say, "Just give us to tools to build our own support." And you're right (kind of). And I will (kind of).
So what's with all this snarky "kind of" stuff? I'm focused on making it easy for non-programmers
to add game support. I want to give you as much power to extend the system as I can; but at least in version 1.0, I'm not targeting programmers. You won't find a plug-in API. You won't find a scripting language. I hope you'll discover that EpicTable's Game Designer allows you to do most everything you need to do without resorting to programming. Later, maybe there will
be a plug-in API (that's how I
plan to extend the system, so...), but for version 1, I'm trading some of the ultimate(ly frustrating?) power of a plug-in scheme for a larger investment in tools to open up game adaptation to a wider audience. The more I know about the games you're interested in, the more appropriate that toolset will be.
