A month ago I got a sudden urge to be creative, writing and proto-type wise. So initially I started work on my Savage Worlds campaign/rule set - Aegyptvs. Obviously set in ancient Egypt, but with a lot added in. I ran the campaign that goes with the rules set a number of years ago and it was probably the best one I have done, even my players said so. Anyway work progresses on that.
Then I got a sudden urge to do a boardgame, and the best materials I had lying around was a map from one of my old Play-by-Mail games - El Mythico. In its day it was a very good game, but PBM was mostly killed off by the internet... so enter a completely different creature:
El Mythico the Boardgame.
I put a lot of thought and effort into this one, and I am pretty happy with it. We had a playtest last weekend with 3 friends, of various skill levels in boardgaming, and this was pretty good. The mechanics worked well, which is a good start. So I am encouraged enough to move forward with it.
Below is the current incarnation of the game map:
