Forged In Fire, Band Of Brothers, Cowboys, Hold The Line, and others -- what kind of games does Worthington choose to publish? And how does a small publisher find its niche in today's market? Plus, this episode's "Game Off The Beaten Path" is a world-famous fantasy writer's design.

It's been ten years since I designed my first tactical game system and sometimes I fantasize about designing yet another. One that uses all the designing tricks that I’ve learned, something that would give us all as much pleasure without any nit-picky rule pain. So what *might* a new Mark H. Walker tactical system look like? Here are some things I would and wouldn't include.…

The game is NOT PZL/PZB/AIW although it originated as such. I have made a new game based on some of the concepts and feel of the game, but the game is designed around being an internet/network hosted game with a completely different set of combat rules and mechanics, taking advantage of FOW and theoretics of combat.
The latest version is 0.29.8 which can be downloaded at…Continue
