Todd Michael Rogers started designing games at six years old, and by age nine was promising friends he could build them cardboard analog video games. In 1996 he was in the seventh grade (US) and made his first card game, which he continued to work on "every decade or so" often enlisting the help of his friends Sakroka & Paxson of Ashgarden. This first game eventually became the first of it's kind--a tabletop card game that allows for an infinite amount of players. And after twenty+ years, EPIOCH is set for release in 2019, with illustrations by the illustrious Weshoyot Alvitre.
In December of 2009 Todd began work on a project that would soon consume the next decade of his life; a solitaire card game that would allow the player to experience the emotional journey of both a fantasy book and JRPG. This became Spell Saga, a game illustrated by his cousin Lauren Rogers, and self-described as "the world's first tabletop novel". After three years of work, and play-testing from both Sakroka & a friend named Joshua Rizzo, Spell Saga was released as a PnP in May of 2013, and was successfully crowdfunded in October of the following year. In the Fall of 2018, four years later, physical copies of the first editions were sent out across the world.
Spell Saga is a story which spans across several decks of cards, but can also be enjoyed by more advanced players through shorter novella-ish length decks called ~realmwalkers~.
