The Geekerati crew had a great discussion with Alyssa Faden about her miniatures wargame Torn Armor which recently funded on Kickstarter. It really looks to be an amazing game. Don’t believe me? Check out the design demos and the play through video.
About Alyssa Faden:
Alyssa Faden had the good fortune to be born in England and therefore did all of the usual geeky things – live roleplay, Dungeons & Dragons, drawing fantasy places – while in the middle of real-world castles and ancient barrow mounds. Not many are honored to have grown up in a city established by the Romans, with intact Roman walls and a Colosseum, but Alyssa was and she fully embraced it in every respect. Is it any wonder that she was the first to be playing Dungeons & Dragons in her school? With a lust for the unknown and the magical country of “America,” she emigrated in 1998 and has been spreading ‘home country historical goodness’ via the mediums of cartography and table-top games ever since. Alyssa has recently worked for Paizo, Gygax Magazine, Kobold Quarterly, Silver Gryphon Games, R.Scott Taylor, and Jon Brazer Enterprises and is the creator of the Torn World setting.
