We are two absolutely non-delusional, winged-monkey riding weirdos, who are also veterans of 25 years of paper and pen gaming. We played everything we could get our hands on, and kept on playing everything we liked. Eventually, we thought it was a great idea to create a world and a system that incorporated all that was good and got rid of all that was bad in RPGs. After 15 years of mucking about, play testing, revising, deciding that everything was probably a bit much, and the occasional moment of inspiration, this led to the Omega Earth.
