The Wandering Beekeeper is Andrew Ragland, a tabletop game designer with over twenty years of publication history. From Shadowrun when it was still at FASA, to Mage: The Ascension at White Wolf, through Earthdawn and a series of independent systems, and now as line developer of the 1879 steamweird product line at FASA Games Inc., Andrew has spent decades committed to writing quality, player involvement, solid plotline, believable gameworlds, and meeting deadlines. Dynamic Balances is his first truly independent project, his own mechanic built from the ground up, with player agency at its foundation. Venleitche, the first gameworld for Dynamic Balances, explores a polytheistic world where divinity is undeniably real, where humans have four possible physical gender configurations, and where everything people do has consequences and repercussions that may range from a shift in personal luck to natural disasters that wreck entire continents. Further gameworlds are planned and have been outlined.
