Site reworked

posted Nov 7, 2009, 12:13 PM by Tarl Telford has been completely reworked.  Take a look around at the new categories and hierarchies of content.  This is going to be a work in progress for some time as I dust off old stories and artwork that has never before seen the light of day.
Take note of the separate categories of created worlds and screenplays.  Screenplays are scripts that I have written.  Created worlds are more in-depth imagining; developing stories, worlds and games at the same time.

Emerald Engine of Oz - Game Designs

posted Aug 14, 2009, 7:54 PM by Tarl Telford

I have started working on some game designs for a series of games based on the world created by L. Frank Baum in his "Famous Fourteen" Oz books.  These games and original stories are not necessarily canonical with the Oz books, but rather a fanciful interpretation of the world.
The Emerald Engine of Oz is the device that powers the magic in Oz.  It is also the over-arching title for the saga of stories and games.

The first game my team is working on is called, "TikTok Walkabout."  It follows a clockwork man, TikTok, as he journeys throughout Oz and the surrounding lands searching for pieces to assemble a clockwork girl - Widget.  Along the way he battles Wheelers, Nomes and fierce monsters.  

Emerald Engine - contains the game design document / wiki for this project.
