At the moment I have quite a bit of free time on my hands. One part of this forum I really enjoy is the chance to contribute ideas or assistance to game designs in progress. As I haven't had much occasion to stretch my creative muscles in a while, I would be happy to help (for free of course) out designers who require some flavour text written/rules read.

So - if you require a fresh set of eyes or some ideas, feel free to drop me a geek-mail about the project. If it interests me I'd be happy to help. I can draft up a short sample of flavour text, send it to you. If you like it, we can carry on from there.


Edit: Please send me your email addresses as well so I have somewhere to send commentary to.

What a lovely offer Samantha, very kind of you.

I have just linked you to the most updated AtomPunk rules to see if you can get your mind around them

Samantha provided some early rules review assistance on The Great Heartland Hauling Co.(when it was still Over the Road). Helpful feedback was provided.

Thanks for offering this helps to designers! Very generous of you!

Hi all, will start having a look through these.

Sam: I don't see the rules link on the Atompunk page? Perhaps email them to me?

Nate: South Africa is still developing... in a backwards sort of fashion.

Hi Samantha,

I don't know if this is your sort of thing, but I'd be interested in another set of eyes on my WIP tutorial rules:

Thanks Sam! Sam has provided some invaluable feedback and pointed out some typos that I was sure wasn't there earlier. I am sure that happens to many people, right? right?

Lots of aspiring designers here! And some intriguing ideas. I'm finished with my current batch, anyone else who wants stuff read/written, just drop me a geekmail.
