I could do with some feedback regarding the new rules I’m currently writing. To Ringo, to Ringo not?

There are three options.

  1. Remove Ringo Starr from the entire game.
  2. Keep Ringo Starr at his current level.
  3. Amend Ringo Starr, so the Children of Worthing (COWs) are hybrid variants of Ringo Starr, essentially, mention him once, then let it drift into the background of the game.

Can I get your feedback on this sticky”Ringo Starr” type dilema please?

As part of the TOPTA re-write, I’m restarting Burning Car Press and have purchased a new domain name This will be an active shop and forum for TOPTA, dice, other games and related paraphernalia. I’d be happy to use it as a shop front for anyone else game related work. I’m looking at you Mr Dunn and Mr Marshall 🙂



I’m actually going to finish and print the game. I’m setting a deadline for Autumn (yes, that is a bit vague), but life has a way of getting in the way, so I thought I’d give myself some slack.

In real terms, I’m putting everything on hold except TOPTA. I had a lot of good feedback about the script I wrote for my Birthday Bash and chatted with loads of people regarding writing in general. I’ve had a few days to think about it, I toyed with the idea of finishing some script ideas and short stories, but all it did was open a can of worms as to which willow the wisp I should follow. So, I chose TOPTA for the following reasons: It’s nearly finished and I have play tested scenarios which need a polish, not an act of god.

So, guess what … I’m going to finish TOPTA.

I love you all. Prepare the Tequila.

Potentially a new TOPTA scenario.

Utopia by other means …


Thank You Jenny and Dave

Cheers for PWOD 3 which wouldn’t have happened without your generosity. It was a great weekend and hopefully we will see you in better weather in south Wales soon.

Love from me and from Sarah, Livy and Martin (whom I believe will share my sentiment)
