Tag: Part-Time Gods
A few months ago we released a cleaned up version of Part-Time Gods for all the fans to get reacquainted with the awesome game and setting. Now, I’m here to announce that we’re currently working on outlines and development on sourcebooks that will expand on the universe and give players a ton of new options. A Kickstarter is also in the works for Mid-June to give you a chance to make all of this come true.
What we have planned:
Other Hidden Secrets
We’re super excited about this and we’ll be talking more about the game and the Kickstarter as we get closer. We’d love to hear more from the fans on what kinds of things they’d like to see!
Until next time.
I just thought I’d share with you guys a bit of progress we’ve had recently:
- Camp Myth: The RPG is nearing completion. Last of art is on its way and we’re going into layout next week. Woot!
- Storm Battalion is 80% done with the writing portion,we’re just doing a few restructurings of the information and how it’s presented. Then we have the talented Rick Hershey doing art for us!
- Our new writer for Divine Instruments is nailing it and we’re even closer to getting a preliminary draft of that done sometime soon.
- Getting a map done for Sinister. Fun stuff!
Until next time.
I’ll admit it, I was worried about this one. Anime conventions, by definition, and filled with a bunch of cosplay enthusiasts, dance petition and panels about the difference between death gods from one OVA to the next. This was also MomoCon’s first year of having an actual “gaming” section, so there was no way to know how successful this endeavor was going to be. I was happy to lend my personality and enthusiasm for games to it myself, and I’m glad to report… it was a GREAT con!
Left my house at 4:30am so that I could to Atlanta before the con started. I showed up a little too early, but it was cool cause I actually got to help set up the 8-table RPG room and meet the staff, who were all awesome. I also got to scope out the board game room and see what they had, which was a LOT! I was eyeing the BSG board game mostly, but that could wait for now. I had a 2pm game (right as the room opened), but it didn’t look like anyone really knew what the room was for. There were a lot of anime kids coming in and saying … Read More »
We received 7 pretty great entries into the God of Love Contest. Going through them, it was genuinely difficulty to pick a winner. Even down the wire, where I was down to my final 3. What we ended up with is a tie for winner. These two concepts were submitted as two sides of the same coin, and I found it impossible to split them or choose a favorite.
So, without further ado, here are the winners: Cindy Divine the goddess of Passion by Kate Wolsey and Reuben Reed the god of Love by Karl Olson.
Name: Cindy Divine
Occupation: Adult Toy Store Owner, Dominions: Passion
Theology: Order of Meskhenet, Age: 29
Height/Weight: 5’7 126, Hair/eyes: Red Hair and Green Eyes
Description: Fun and easy going. Eyes that are always laughing
Wealth: 2, Goals: Inspire passionate living into all those around her.
“It’s time, its finally time! Meet me in 10 minutes!” She squealed
She grabbed her jacket and small box from the chair by the door and bounced into the rain.
Cindy waited under the The Hanging Tree, double checking all the tools in her box, a chocolate covered cherry, her family’s bell and mirror, the needle, matches, a stick of cinnamon and the deep red piece of velvet. She shut the … Read More »
It’s February, a time of love and romance and togetherness. But as we all know, love comes in many different forms. Following that idea, Third Eye Games is running the God of Love Contest. We want to see what kinds of unique gods and goddesses of love you can come up with, using Part-Time Gods. It could be a traditional god of love, a god of lust using his/her powers for good or a god of blood that affects its… *ahem*… flow. Whatever you can come up with!
We’re looking for a brief background and a full write-up of the character’s stats and favored Manifestation use. Email entries to email@example.com. We’re accepting entries through February 20th, at which time the winner will be announced, their god/dess of love put up on Third Eye Games’ web site and they will receive a $20 credit for the 3EG Online Store!
I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!
For my first order of business as a full-time game designer now, I decided to tackle something that’s been bothering me for some time now. Part-Time Gods has received so many great reviews and comments and love from the fans, but everyone has said the same thing… editing could have been tighter. I took a little bit of time and skimmed the book to find, to my horror, it was riddled with misspelling and mysterious dashes that made no sense. So, I sat down, cracked my knuckles, put coffee on the burner and spent a lot of time going through the InDesign files to clean up the grammar, phrasing clarity, and spelling.
I didn’t stop there, however. I’ve been listening to feedback from the fans I’ve collected over time and took this opportunity to put a few changes into the game. Altering the Blast Manifestation and adding another way to Boost are just a couple examples of these changes. It’s the same awesome Part-Time Gods, but this revised version makes it that much stronger of a game.
What does this mean for you? It means you should have received a notification of a new version of the PDF if you’ve purchased the game from … Read More »
While at GenCon 2012, I had an awesome group of podcasters from the Play the Game Podcast come up and say hi! They were very interested in what Third Eye Games had to offer and I was more than happy to share it with them. They asked if they could record me telling them about it, and I said sure, grab your mic. They said, we’ll be back tomorrow with our camera. I have to admit, it got me nervous, as I haven’t done much in the way of talkies. But this is actually a very good video and kind of gives you the firsthand view of what it was like coming to the Third Eye Games booth at GenCon!
So, I was able to get my hands on a cool H1-Zoom before my trip to DragonCon 2012. I used it to very cleverly (and with everyone’s permission) record the panels I was on. It was supposed to be 3 panels, but I slipped onto a 4th just for good measure. The event itself is amazing and I had a great time! You should just go ahead and listen to all the fun we had. There are 4 panels:
#1 – Publishing an RPG
#2 – Children in Gaming
#3 – Cinematic Roleplaying
#4 – Indie RPGs

Part-Time Gods is a roleplaying game where players take the role of ordinary people imbued with the powers of a god.

Powered by the new DGS-Lite system and packed with plenty of character options, players make any kind of character they can think of and can quickly jump into the world. Includes over 40 antagonists, flexible divine magic and an in depth view of the world from the eyes of the gods. Everything you need to run the game in one book!
