The Alpha Set is finished

That albatross around my neck is finally hanging by a thread holding the Sword of Damoclese over my stomach.

So that was a little over the metaphore. Let me explain.

I've been working for about 2 years on a projected called the DCG. The Downloadable Card Game. There have been many ups and downs, because despite what a lot of other people say this is a paradigm shift in regards to doing a large format card game. There have been some movement in that direction since I started this (FFG turning Game of Thrones into a Living Card Game, but that may have as much to do with the fact that they're running out of new books and don't really want to deal with it as much as anything else) but nothing really goes as far as what I'm trying to do. When you do that by yourself it takes some time to do.

Now I've got 230 cards done for the Alpha test for Factions, my DCG, and I need to test it. This is the finishing kick and I hope to get this out to the general public before Gen Con next year. I've got to keep that in mind, August '09.
