INTRODUCTION TO TAHANA
Tahana has been over 30 years in the making. Eventually Tahana took on a life… a personality of its own. To continue in the spirit of this feeling of self-existence, the Tahana Guidebooks are set forth as a series of works created by the people of Tahana. Tahana is designed as a large fantasy RPG world (role-playing game world).
The purpose of sharing the world is to allow others to enjoy its richness and history. Like all RPG worlds, players can use the world and modify it to fit their particular gaming system, style, or group. The purpose of creating Adventures in Tahana (AiT) as a board game with multiple levels and highly customizable rules, then as an ongoing campaign (a sort of role-playing game light), and finally as a role-playing game is to provide a way to introduce new players to the world of role-playing without the steep learning curve or the shell-shock of the massive number of pages of rules.
Also, AiT’s design allows players to play the game that they have the time for, after all not all of us have the time to play RPGs weekly any more. I highly encourage players to take the guidebooks and modify the game, especially through game play as your players affect the world, change the world. If players excelled, when they retire add them to the roster of Cosmic Beings. Make the world your own.
