What a Great Productive Weekend!

This weekend has been really productive for me but on projects I have not worked on before.
While Samurai Sheepdog is getting up and running as a company, and we have a few projects in different stages I had a creative streak and am working on two projects with two people I have not had the pleasure to work with before.

Even if neither come to fruition, starting to work on my first sound idea for a board game and my first rough attempt at a children's book have been some fun stuff.

I want to thank the people that are willing to even start discussions with me on this Marc F and Jim P.

Thanks for listening to me ramble!

I Need Playtesters

As it gets closer to 2013 I realized we have a few projects that we would like to come out BUT we need help, we need playtesters.

Playtesters are people willing to print up rules and temporary "pieces" (if needed) and play the game and then write up any thoughts and opinions.
It is not hard but you are depended on, to take a serious look at the item and critique it fairly and honestly.  It is one of the few positions in gaming that your opinion can change the item.

So if you like role playing games (C&C, PF only for now), board games send me an email at hal at samuraisheepdog dot com.

In that email put in the subject line playtest-(and what you would like to playtest), in the email tell me a little about you, your gaming group and anything else that may seem like a positive.  Also list your name and all of your groups names since we will need NDA's (non disclosure agreements) on some items plus you get your name in the game you playtested!

Look forward to working with you in 2013!

What's in a Name?

Some people have asked where the name of the new company came from, well here it is....
Doug and I were looking for a unique name that people whould remember and we wanted something that did not have the word games in it since we have some non game ideas.

That was when my daughter decided to "dress up" our sheepdog.
I started to call her my samurai sheepdog, and we both (Doug and I) while on the phone really liked it, it is something that people will remember!

So the name was born, then we started working on logo's and an image and the very talented Jhoneil did us the honor of taking care of the art for us, and so Samurai Sheepdog is born.

In a few I will explain a little more about some projects we are currently working on.

It is Official, Bluffside for C&C!!!

TLG 8509 Bluffside City on the Edge
Adventure, 120 pages (estimated), Perfect Bound
ISBN: 978-1-936822-56-0

Bluffside: City on the Edge Civilization is still picking up the pieces following an asteroid strike two hundred thousand years ago. The epicenter? Bluffside. Only 208 years after its rediscovery, Bluffside is a boom town boasting the most precious metal in the known world - adamantine. From the ancient ruins of Sem La Vah, to the vast Undercity, to the floating port of Sordadon, Bluffside: City on the Edge promises to become the home port for thousands of adventurers. Used as a stand alone city, or combined with other sourcebooks, thereby creating a modular world one great area at a time.

We are lining up cover artist Jason Walton of Myriad Studios to bring the City on the Edge back to life!
