Haha, good find. I'm giving it a shot, though it may be difficult to play through a forum. I'm absolutely fascinated by this game, and wanted to gather some people that would like to try it out as well. Currently I have enough people interested to get it going, but if I know how forum games work I'm likely to lose a few in the next couple months.

I was quite surprised though to find a link to it from these forums. Thanks Mamama!

*Edit* Oops, sorry, I forgot to mention that I'm the one trying to run this game as the Norn. The names are the same, so some of you may have caught it. Feel free to lurk if people want to read how it plays out, but I would ask you to be gracious with me in your judgements.

You can follow the game here if anyone would like. Because it's a forum game it moves quite slowly. And I'll be deliberately trying to help the players understand the rules, so anticipate a good bit of clarification and instruction at the onset.

Hey hey hey! :) Very cool, just read the story so far, looks like it's going to be a lot of fun!
Just FYI, for rune pulls, we had someone build something rather nice:

Maybe it can help.
Looks like this is the Core Rulebook saga, so I'll see if my admin skills are proficient enough to move this out of the Fafnir's board LOL

We will be working on a mobile platform app soon too.

Yeah! I've been using that program for random rune pulls from the collection of ALL runes. But I can't figure out how to use it to Wyrd from the set pool of a character's Essence. So we're working with a convoluted, but functional system!

I noticed this morning a plug on the facebook page too, which is fantastic. Let me know if I'm screwing anything up, ha!

Wyrding isn't really all that convoluted anymore, if I dare say so myself:

Cool, how do we create our own Essence/Destiny/Void? ;)
