Knights of the Hidden Sun — Now On Trent Radio

Space opera with stone instead of steel, runes instead of circuits, the power of the human soul instead of fusion.

This is the roleplaying game I’ve been working on for the past three years. In it the player characters are agents of a shadowy organization dedicated to keeping peace throughout the Galaxy. They use magic, cunning and skill to attain their goals. The game can be an action packed adventure or even a deadly intrigue depending on the tastes of the players

I’ve had fun writing all 300 pages. I’ve found that it’s worked well in play-testing. I’m running a game at Phantasm in Peterborough Ontario this weekend and I’m looking into running another at Hammer Con in Hamilton Ontairo in November.

Right now the development of Hidden Sun is in the very capable hands of Malcolm Sheppard of White Wolf fame. He’s doing a great job. I value the perspective and the work he’s putting into this.

However, I want to do more. That’s why I’ll be producing a radio show on Trent Radio 9.27 CFFF FM.

It’s going to be a series of stories from the Hidden Sun Galaxy. It will follow the journey of a young woman named Rix as she searches the stars for the stolen souls of her ancestors. It’s going to be a live show, so watch for my mistakes. I also hope to make a podcast. I’m rather new to podcasting so this may take me a week or two after the show airs.

The show won’t ‘give away the whole Galaxy’. The stories will be specific and while they’ll describe the Hidden Sun Galaxy they won’t offer in depth context into the setting. For that, and the rules, you’ll need to buy the book when it comes out. The purpose of the show will be for fun (mine, I like telling stories, and hopefully yours) and give perspective Hidden Sun players a taste of what is to come.

The radio show will start on November 3rd at 5:00 PM EST. It will then run weekly, every Sunday, from 5:00 – 6:00 PM EST.

I hope you enjoy it.
