In a sign I have been spending way too much time on all this lately, I had a pretty clear dream last night that I had a company that produced an introductory-style boxed set. I think it was some sort of licensed property, because there were bunch of people wearing matching t-shirts in the background. It was a white box with blue markings on the front, and in my hand, I held a fancy laminated card that had a list of things in the box.
I remember the following (I didn’t read them, but someone was marking them off as they went):
5 Player Cards
24-page Referee (yes, Referee) guide
3 sheets paper minis and map
4-page Beginner’s Adventure
16-page Veteran’s Adventure (yes, Veteran’s)
No idea on where the page counts came from, or why there was no color for the d10s.
Then, we were giving them away as some promotion with a catalog. We were on a radio show as we went through a mall announcing it.
I sort of feel like the guy who wrote the poem “Kubla Khan”. I just wish I knew what system it was.
