This is David Ross Drake, the reasonable half of Calculated Error Games. It's with both enthusiasm and trepidation that I present today the first release of The Adventures of Lucky Pip and the Incomparable Ithamar Conchie.

This game was a ridiculous endeavor first proposed by Andrew, who had the foresight to realize that dice are simply too predictable, and that thus the future of gaming lay in fortune cookies. We present this offering in the hopes of quashing this nascent trend. It's a simple story-telling game which takes 10-15 minutes to play; the rules cover two sides of a single piece of paper.

We're offering this to the public for the humble sum of a single American dollar.

You may ask yourself, "Self, in these desperate times, when daily we hear reports of flagging consumer spending, bankruptcies in the titans of industry, warring states abroad, and spiraling health-care costs, how can I justify the purchase of this stupid fortune-cookie game?"

In response, I submit the following: this game offers more than mere "entertainment" in exchange for your filthy lucre; indeed, The Adventures of Lucky Pip and the Incomparable Ithamar Conchie is literally crammed with morally instructive properties. You are not spending your hard-earned money on a superfluous piece of digital frippery. No! You are investing in your own character, and that of your fellow players. If this still is not enough to entice you, I note also that each pdf includes lovingly hand-drawn period illustrations provide by Andrew Henderson, well known in Seattle for his exhibitions on the walls of Beth's Cafe. Moral and Aesthetic remuneration; huzzah!

Onward America! Ever Proud, Free, and Brave, so long as we are able to stand up against our own unpatriotic parsimony and purchase the pdf provided through the paypal link below!
