I've often asked myself "Why are you writing this game? What's the point?"

To that the answer is always "Because I really believe I have something to offer the gaming community"

Sure, there are just under a billion RPGs already out there, but I think I have some clever (if I do say so myself) ideas in a few areas of gaming. I won't claim to have read, or even seen, all the games that are out there, but I do think that a couple of ideas that I came up with are original.

So here are a few reasons why I created my own system:

Empire Role Playing

A Universal Role Playing Collective
"Bringing Advanced Gaming Back to Basics"

For years now I've been creating and honing a role playing game the way I've always wanted one to be. It was always sort of a pipe dream that one day I would sell it to someone and become rich and famous and millions of people would flock to my house for words of wisdom in gaming...and errata clarification. Well, I don't see the later part of that ever happening, but I do still have hopes of producing an actual product that someone, other than me, can hold in their hands and use.

It started out a very long time ago as a Post-Apocalyptic alternative to Aftermath! because, while my friends and I loved PA games, none of us had an engineering degree to understand their rules. From there it started to expand and grow and mutate.
