A long time ago, in a galaxy much like this one, a guy had an idea for a table top role-playing game. Life got in the way and it sat languishing in a corner somewhere, until about eight years ago. He pulled it out, blew off the dust and convinced his wife and some friends to help redesign and finish the game. Being the gluttons for punishment that they are, they jumped in with both feet and Our Own Game Company was born.
Over the years of brainstorming, play testing, intense discussions (ie. arguing) and innovation to create the fantasy role-playing game A’Kyria, creatures for the RPG were created. We decided on a simple, but detailed, style of pen and ink illustrations that have proved very popular with our players. This is the inaugural print run of one of our more popular renditions of a fantasy creature: The Manticore; which is one of the many creatures featured in the print and eBook versions of the A’Kyria rulebook.
With this Kickstarter campaign we hope to be able to bring some of our fantasy world to you through vinyl stickers, artist prints and the advertising material we need to spread the word that A’Kyria is ready to be enjoyed by gamers around the world. The artist prints we are offering during this campaign will be individually signed by our artist in residence, Louise Hughes.
It has been a labor of love developing the A’Kyria world and the downloadable digital adventures we continue to build to enhance the game playing experience.
