Welcome to the weekly update, and it’s just a quick message this week to tide you
guys over until the next instalment of our In Flames game is ready. If you haven’t already, take a look at our
first 3 games to get you up to speed.
However, we didn’t want to leave all you guys hanging and we have a couple of
website we think all of you need to see! Most of us will at some point have toyed with the idea of making up our
own world or even our own game system. Well that’s just what these guys have done!
Orpherischt of Reddit has created the fantasy realm of Tormentosa, a world of powerful lords and mysterious
magic. Drawing on real world history and geography, Orpherischt presents this world in the form of handwritten
books and maps that can be used as artefacts in-game, and the artwork he has produced is stunning! His website
is a must for all budding world builders and GMs alike.
For those of you looking for something a bit more sci-fi, God_Boy07 has what you
need. Fragged Empire is a post-post apocalyptic world were
humans as we know them are dead and genetically engineered beings fight to establish a new world order. Complete
with its own bespoke rules system and one of the most awesome websites on the net, this is a game that deserves
And finally, Andomone of Reddit has made a couple of games that are available from
our good friends at drivethrurpg. Big, Bad Hunters is a detective story set in a twisted
fairy tale world, and Children of the Aesir is a norse inspired adventure in
which the players take on the roles of several characters in order to survive a deadly dungeon. Both games sound
really unique and offer something different to bring to the table, we here at Ding-IRL are looking forward to
giving one of them a go in the near future.
So what worlds have you created? Have you made up your own system or just have an
idea for an epic adventure? Why not lets us know about it, drop us a line at our Contact us page or find us on Facebook, Reddit or
Twitter and let us know all about your creative masterworks. Or if you have played one of the games we have
just mentioned then why not let us and all the other Ding-heads out there how it went.
Next week, we will be bringing you the next instalment of In Flames, will the
tattooed man’s plans be revealed before the players get arrested? Find out here at Ding-IRL.

doesn’t mean you wont have something to say. Head over to the contact us page and let us know about your gaming
experiences and maybe it will end up on the page as well.
