I had the pleasure of working at Alderac Entertainment Group (AEG) for a year or two back around 1998. I was designing the 7th Sea CCG, and I had the opportunity to work with the writers as they developed the fiction, lore, and history for the 7th Sea world.
I was able to see firsthand the impact their work had on the game. The card game grew from just being game mechanics on cards to being a fleshed-out world, that the cards lived in, and the players cared about.
I’ve never forgotten that lesson.
It is my hope to bring that same richness of story to Valkyrie’s world. Right now, writers are hard at work bringing Valkyrie to life, and as time goes by I hope to have more writers, more stories, more adventures, until we are able to provide players with a living world deserving of their epic battles.
