Here are the notes for my entry for our DIY Apocalypse Challenge on “d-Infinity Live!” I have not had much time to tidy them up, but they answer all the questions and the setting is done in the "Back of the Book Blurb" style, which give a pretty good idea of the bare bones of the setting.

A couple of days ago we did a Live Challenge Episode in which Brendan Cass challenged us to design a game mechanic, or better yet an entire game or setting, based on a mundane household item. We had a LOT of fun with this one and the discussion was very lively to say the least, though I would say that it was probably one of the toughest challenges we have attempted so far.

Last night's episode of D-Infinity Live was on monetizing your gaming experience. While I can't really tie Ragnarok to that concept, I can use it as a bridge to talk about the economics of the Nordic world and what it means in the Wolf Age.


This week's D-infinity Challenge was Hometown History! The gauntlet thrown down by artist and frequent guest Amanda Kahl was to take some historical event or series of events in a place where you have lived long enough to have a postal address, and turn it into something gameable - and Ideally - fun!

Just what it says. From here you can get to any of the articles I have written on Runequest for d-Infinity:

I also have a Pinterest page for all my Runequest Thursdays which I will update as they come out. Click the link below if you would rather browse that way.

Riffing on the system that I developed for Runequest, based on Chris Nan Deelen’s article detailing the Brute Tattoo, I decided to write up a system for magical Tattoos in Ragnarok! The RPG of the Viking Apocalypse.
