OK, folks, some artwork is coming in, and I can't help but share. It really gets me excited about this game again. Check it out, these pics are amazing:

Cool!

So, when do we see the game itself, or at least a page devoted to it on your website?

I'm working on a website now, off and on. It will incorporate elements of the art. Also, I've really simplified the mechanics -- they had become dizzyingly complicated, from the player's perspective particularly. After getting Avatar-13 into playtest, I'm back to the grind on Nine Worlds. I hope to have a Web site for in a couple weeks. I'll keep posting notes, snippets, and visuals here in the mean time.

It certainly seemed that way when you originally described them. Good. I agree with Jared that simpler is better. But then, I'm more of an English major than a math major, so I would say that. ;-) So, you were able to playtest it and thin out the rules?

I look forward to seeing more.
