A Fascinating Role-playing Game
As readers know, Daniel's books have inspired all sorts of things -- songs, films, books, and murals seen all over the Southeastern U.S. We've learned of something else that falls under that heading -- a very deep and sophisticated role-playing game called "The Fifth World." How did the Fifth World get to be the fifth? The First was The world before life; Second, The world of life before Man; Third, The world of Man before the birth of civilization; Fourth, The world of civilization; and Fifth, The neotribal world that emerges after the collapse of civilization.
Its author, Jason Godesky, tells us that he's spent "the better part of a decade" designing this game, "intended to draw players into an animist experience and present a positive vision of the sort of neotribal future we could one day create." Definitely worth a look for role-playing addicts. The beta version, just released, can be seen at The Fifth World.
