Cavern Tavern

A fantasy worker-placement board game

Summary

Role: Additional Writer

I was invited by the lovely folks at Final Frontier Games to help work with them on The Cavern Tavern, writing supplementary material, stories, and card exerpts.

The game is a worker (dice) placement, resource management game set in a high fantasy world, where the characters are down-on-their-luck serving elves, dwarves, and odder adventurers in the most notorious Inn in all of the Five Realms. As plots are plotted and schemes schemed, what follows is a race to try and stay in Nasty the dwarf's good books by completing chores and tasks, all the while attempting to also complete your super-secret tasks.
"The Best of gaming and fantasy, all in one..". (Gaming Maven @ To Die for Games)

"The artwork is fantastic, but really the mechanics match with the theme. We had a blast playing this game!" (Sit Down Standard.com)

Mission:

To expand on the thematic elements of the game, developing the in-game world, characters, and background stories.

Thoughts:

Developing concept for games is a great process, and one that I enjoy immensely. I like the fact that there is an interplay between the mechanics and story narrative, as both help feed the other.

Development:

I’m working with Final Frontier on their follow up game Rise to Nobility, which continues the story of the Five Realms.
