If you've got anything at all to say or ask about, see the subjects below and comment away. I'm very curious to hear any thoughts. A key reason I released this online was to further beta test it to asure quality when I release a second (and final) version. On the sidebar you can find all sorts of information about the game, from maps and character descriptions to music downloads.
The Sword and the Fish was begun in 1999 when I got a hold of RM2000 off a friend and my brother Tyler and I began a silly story about a hick from a small cult town. I have a tendancy not to quit on working ideas, and SatF never ceased to work. Thus, over 6 years I continued to work on the story as it grew and grew to become one of the biggest and grandest RPGs around. It is a perfect medium. Entire creative control at my fingertips and a simple-to-grasp technical basis. The end result is the 1500 map completed version 1 of the game that wrote itself after halfway through.
I hope you enjoy playing it as much as I did making it (except the year and a half of testing - that was TEDIOUS) and this sites for anyone to satisfy any outside-of-game lust for more content and information. And to let your voice be heard!
Any general kudos or concerns that don't fit into any categories? Overall assesments?
