Future Imperfect

Over at the Risus Talk group, Brent Wolke has challenged himself to produce one 8-page Risus setting per month from now until the Apocalypse (or as long as he can keep it up). He's got a good start on things with his Future Imperfect setting, published on his Engine of Thwaak website. It's a brilliant piece of work featuring Robots that Inherit the Earth. It's polished, well-written, and contains very slight tweaks on the standard rules that really bring out the setting. I can't wait to see what Mr. Wolke does next.

I think this is a splendid idea, so much so that I wrote him and told him personally. The idea of a complete setting available in only 8 pages fits perfect with the Risus mantra and is great for those of us with busy lives. I cannot wait for what else he comes up with.

I agree. I'd like to encourage anybody who'd willing to put out content like this. It reflects well on the community, shows what can be done with Risus, and is also very gameable. And I agree that the 8-page format is perfect for Risus (though you could go even shorter...)
