Update, GenCon 2016, and Looking Ahead
For those of you not following along on Facebook, Twitter, or the Kickstarters, you may want to keep tabs on us there, but I'll commit to making a better effort at updating the website here as well. Sorry about the long silence here. My bad.

Harsh Realities went through a period of restructuring late 2014 and through 2015 following a series of unexpected woes in the personal lives of the three principle founders of the company. Harsh unofficially took over as CEO and President of the company at the time, and as of 2016 has officially assumed the position and set to work to set a stable foundation, rebrand, and relaunch the company and the various planned product lines. With the other two founders of Harsh Realities mostly unavailable, Harsh has worked diligently to produce quality products for Harsh Realities, starting with the two unfulfilled Kickstarters for Promised Sands and EflWood. Work continues on both at the moment. Promised Sands is expected to be in editing before fall and both titles are expected to be released as soon as possible - hopefully before 2017.
Harsh Realities will not be able to attend GenCon Indy 2016. Some of our friends and some fans of Sixcess (6S) will be there, however. Search the Events catalogue for Sixcess or Kelly's Heroes to find the games and have some fun with some great GMs.
Harsh is focused on wrapping up Promised Sands as quickly as possible without sacrificing quality in content or visual appeal. The Backers and fans of the book deserve a quality product, and that is what will be delivered. Once Promised Sands is released, there will be no lull as Harsh moves on to finish ElfWood, which currently sits at roughly 60% written. Writing for ElfWood will not take as long as the writing for Promised Sands and editing should not be as involved either if all goes to plan. ElfWood is also being held to the new standard of quality that Harsh Realities has embraced - our Backers and fans deserve the best we can offer. Once ElfWood is released, along with a surprise or two currently under wraps, Harsh will move directly to other Settings as well as organize teams to produce support materials for both Promised Sands and ElfWood. The next few years will see the Harsh Realities library grow one product at a time until there is literally something for everyone.
Harsh is also looking to explore 3rd Party Products as an option for expanding the uses of 6S as a game system. If you, or someone you know, is interested in the 6S game system for your Setting or Mini-Setting, please contact Harsh at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
If your group has tried, or wants to try 6S, and wants to be playtesters for new, up-coming Settings or Mini-Settings, please contact Harsh for more information on that as well.
The doorways to adventure are only locked to those who lack the key to open them.
