Dear Zileas (and Riot!)
I just have a few comments and questions:
I'm an old-skool video game and table top gamer. I know C++ and can read it fairly fluently, but Im a horrible code monkey. However, I am an excellent writer, story teller, and game mechanics designer. So, Ive played off my strengths and have spent the last few years working on a universal table top dice system that allows players to play any kind of genre or theme as a table top RPG, like Dungeons and Dragons, Legend of the Five Rings, Call of Cuthullu, GURPS, etc. (and with the game I engineered players can even take a movie, book, a video game, whatever it is they like) and play a table top version of it (even a League of Legends themed table top RPG would be possible)!
To complement my dice system and core rule book, I created a separate steam punk themed supplement to go with the dice system. I have written it, hired the artists, and graphic designers with the purpose was to show that I can stand out from the crowd, but its not done, and Im literally on the cusp of printing a hard copy for the public.
I originally intended to surprise Riot with a hard copy of both game books and an application. So, my questions are:
1) Would you prefer me to send a finished product? Or would a sample showing the book cover and some interior pages suffice? Im a bit of a perfectionist, so it just makes my gut wrench to take a risk of displaying an unfinished product. However, I didnt want to miss this call for hiring new game designers. But, at least if I send samples they would be gorgeous.
2) If I send a hard copy, what address can I send it too? Ive put a lot of love and time into my books, and I would break my heart if it got lost, misplaced, or just tossed in the trash without anyone looking at it.
