From the Publisher's website:
Exile Games is based in Seattle, WA, where its co-founders came to reside following a series of calamitous and near-apocryphal events that don't really bear closer examination. Following a heated dispute over the hollow earth theory, they found themselves marooned on a desert island - exiled from the world they knew, and armed only with their wits, a sand spade, and a number two pencil with which to survive. Recognizing their limitations, they immediately fashioned a crude set of dice from rocks and shells and set about creating innovative new roleplaying games to pass the time. They were eventually rescued, and vowed to exact vengeance by sharing with fellow gamers all they'd created during their banishment. Whether or not the world is truly prepared for such torment, only history shall judge.
