What projects are you starting this year?
So… What’s Ocuring?
5 Dice Games
I have been working on some projects for the past week.
Strike Force Book 1 is coming along nicely. I have the rules almost complete, then we are going to do some heavy play testing while the rules enter the Graphic Design phase of the project.
I will divulge more about this project over the next few weeks, along with some Play Test Pics!
Cascade is our fun family board game I will be showcasing a little more about this game over the next few weeks as we start major development for the EXPO!
The game is for up to 2-6 players to race around the board by matching symbols on the board. Match your symbols for an extra boost, and be careful whose symbols you match in case of repercussion! More to follow soon!
Check out the Logo:
I will show more as we get something nice to show you! If I get some time, I will create a video preview too!
The rules have all been written and it is just waiting to be typeset and start production on a working prototype to determine what the finished article will look like. I will get some pics over the next few weeks as development continues.

Jumping in the way Mac catches the block and drops it aside. Levi is grateful and the next day invites him to his uncles restraunt on the sea front. At the restraunt, Levi’s uncle Lorenzo Giovani, thanks Mekenzie, stating he owes him a debt for his heroic actions.
Blizzard has joined the fire fighters of Cape Town and finds herself racing towadrs a burning Mixima Financial building with the fire fighting team. Once the blaze is under control, she does a little investigation, and notices foot prints in the ash…
Indira managed to find work as a lumberjack and has been helping clear an area for a new GAU building. While at work, her friend Imanathi screams and when Indira arrives she finds a pit of skeletons of young women and girls who have been brutely and savagely murdered and buried there. Officer Thunderbolt attends the scene and flirts with Indira and offers her a drink Wednesday evening. She accepts leaving the young officer smiling, she finishes her shift, she is disturbed by the sighting and a cold feeling she felt at the shallow grave.
Phantom Fist has been running a dojo to keep local youngetsers out of trouble. But his dojo has come under attack from local yobs and Phantom finds himself cleaning ‘Norm Lover’ graffiti from his dojo. One of his Norm regulars Mark Methembu helps, and Phantom notices his eye all swollen from an assault last night, Mark tells him it’s nothing and he will get even.
Laser Lady meanwhile has found a job working at Ol’ Mallies Cafe down on the seafront. During the day a gang of 7 bikers arrive demanding protection money. Laser Lady, learns they are part of the Black Skulls gang, a thug group for the Copolla everyone knows it and they are terrified, hurt Marlo and you will deal with Copolla, especially Trauma! Marlo leader of the gang, makes Laser Lady feel sick when he is near. She decides to let Ol Mallie pay the protection money and makes a mental note to do something about it at a later date. She also notices one of her regulars a french girl, Toni Frise, glaring at the gang, but not do anything. That night Laser Lady does a little vigilante work, and hunts down members of the gang, but when she locates one of the gang, she finds him, beaten and laying in an alley, and a starnge figure acrobating (holding two billy clubs in her hands) over the roof tops away from the scene of crime. Lsser Lady calls it a night once she fails to locate more ofthe gang.
Sirona has become a lifeguard and is sitting on Muizenberg Beach, False Bay on the Indian Ocean. where Beautifully brightly coloured painted huts line the beach, and hundreds have ascended to the beach to enjoy the hot day. Suddenly people and children ran screaming… When a woman is attacked by a great white.. by the time Sirona arrives to help the woman she had been dragged under. Diving in after her Sirona witnessed something that was not a Great white at all, but looks to be a shark person, she gave chase… but it let the woman go and disappeared into the seas mirk… The crowd cheer her as she returned with the woman and the emergency services arrived to assist.
One night they all gathered for their evening meal at their good friend Germina Khumalos house. Where they discussed their week. The news was going wild with reports about a theft from the Metropolitan Bank of ANtiquities in the City Bowl. Aparently an artefact called the Tablet of Hathor was stolen. Germina notes in the local paper that the Banks Director, Rachelle Derand has an advert looking for private investoigators to assist her to recover an important item. The party decide to investigate further and makes arrangements to meet with Derand.
Meeting with Derand she discusses the situation, the artefact was taken from the glass display here in a private meeting room, where she holds the meeting. The case is smashed to pieces and only the Tablet is gone, other valuable items were untocuhed and left behind. During the robbery, security cameras recorded an unnatural darkness in the meeting room; this darkness totally concealed the thief.
Al lthat was left at the site was a stange fedora style hat, with a card in its band, saying “Traumas coming to everyone!”
Everyone did not know what that meant.
Prying for more information they learned that The tablet is called the Tablet of Hathor. It is an ancient Egyptian tablet covered in hieroglyphs that experts say speak of a priest who endured the Curse of Hom-Dai for attempting to conjure evil beasts entrapped by the gods.
Mrs Derand explained that she believes the tablet has been deciphered, and the increased violent reports by strange monsterous or frightingin beings is linked to it and that more incidents of murder are imminent. She told the police of her fears, but they laughed at her. She begs the heroes to recover the tablet, “for the sake of Capetown!” They agreee to help.
During the meeting a waitress bring sthem refreshments, but on sighting of the case becomes anxious to leave. Once the meeting is finished the party leave and finds the waitress Dana Jacobs, waiting for them by the park outside…
