Multiple users have asked what software is required to run a ‘pod’. NONE other than the pod itself. The pod SW is completely standalone and will run on any Windows machine listed in the requirements or on any emulator that fulfills the requirements.

A’Kyria pods are Patent Pending software adventures designed as a referee tool to enhance the tabletop role playing experience. They are self-contained adventures aided by software, to be used with the A’Kyria game system. Each pod contains a complete adventure story line with an average of 15 encounters, a set number of creatures, treasure, traps and a host of other elements, as well as, devices to track characters, combat and game play. Each full pod adventure provides approximately 24 hours of game play, depending on how quickly or detailed the referee runs the pod. (Game play test groups averaged four six-hour sessions to complete one pod.)

While each pod has pictures and maps, pods are not video games. They are intentionally simple in look and approach so the software will not detract from the referee’s imagination and the essence of the tabletop role playing experience. Pods can be replayed, and since elements like creatures, traps, etc. are randomly generated at the start of a new game, game play is different each time.

Each pod adventure will lead directly to one or more additional pods, branching out into multiple story lines and multiple paths that a referee can choose from.
