Last night I had the pleasure of joining Jeff and Ben at the RPG Circus podcast to promote Timeless. We discussed the basics behind the system, the supplements, and the Woods of Edir series. This was also a great chance to ham it up with the hosts who never missed a beat. A real high class establishment. Although I’m sure they’d be modest and call it the illusion of such. It’s a great illusion! Keep up the good work.

I think that with many RPG writers, I wanted to write fiction long before deciding to write an RPG. This is why this little Novella is so near to my heart. Fearsome Devils is my fest step in what I plan on making a long writing career in fiction and fantasy. Yet it does not fall far from the RPG tree.
The next supplement coming out for Timeless the RPG is called Woods of Edir. This is a fantasy setting that explores a lot more of the possibilities with magic in a heavy story system. (It also provides a nice bite of crunch for people looking for combat.) Fearsome Devils introduces players to the world that they will get to play in.
The story follows the actions of many of the denizens of the forest, known as the Children, as they try to keep their village going in the often harsh woods. They are under constant watch of the fearsome devils who try to control them. Yet even other Children become harsh antagonists getting in the way of their survival.
The main characters are Merg, a skilled Talker tasked with keeping the social woes of the villagers down, Syrel, a wayward Lightfoot struggling to keep his quarrelsome whims in check, Autumn, a mysterious Whisperer who watches over the forest with her skill and eccentricity, and Regg, a dependable and steadfast Master who works his hardest to help the villagers.
The Timeless: Basic Manual is the core. The meat and potatoes of what you need to get started in a story driven role playing game. The game leans heavily on the narrative that players provide. They tell their own stories and lean on their own character backgrounds to tell those stories. When conflicts arise, players then uses small pools of dice (d4, d6, and d8) to roll against target numbers. Each contest having quick resolution, and leaving the descriptions up to the player.
The basic manual is a free, share-alike resource. It sets up very simple rules that are not tied to any specific setting. What this means is that anybody can create their own worlds in which to play. And with the share-alike nature (CCBY to be exact) these worlds can be shared and sold to the person’s content. Official supplements exist as well, the first being Timeless: Creatures!.
