When Last We Left Our Heroes...

Post by Agamemnon » 31 May 2019, 20:49

Writing began anew, rewrites abound, and brace yourself: updates are coming. While an official changelog will come out ahead of the release, I thought I'd tease a bit in the meantime.

This release will be a fairly meaty one:
  • While the migration to scrivener will mean a slightly less polished pdf, the transition will make my work-flow easier and make any future updates or corrections easier to manage.
  • This revision involves a lot of clarity edits in areas people have had questions on, and quite a few convenience changes that people have asked for (duplication of the resource chart comes to mind).
  • Armor locations have long been one of the more arduous parts of the system, and they will not only be getting some changes to streamline the process, but we'll be seeing a codex for them as well that allows for a lot more options to play with.
  • Combat is getting quite a bit of an overhaul, particularly if you haven't been following the fecht-club updates.
  • And at least one new chapter will be added to the existing text with new content. Several more are in the works, though they may or may not be in this coming update
Thanks again for all of you following this project, especially those of you who are actively supporting us through donations or sharing this stuff online, on reddit, or hanging out on discord. Your help is huge.

Until next time,

What will be the subject of the new chapter? With all the rewriting being done I reckon I will have to do an extensive revision of the rules.... :D

There is still stuff happening on the Discord server but things seem to be in a lull at the moment.

It would be nice for Malloy and Henri to commit to a regular update schedule (even every other month), even if it’s something like “nothing happened this month because of life, but here’s what we will work on next.”

I live, still. Mostly. Life is a serious impediment to writing role-playing games. That said, we're still kicking and the current revision set has been evolving over time. Combat is getting some serious overhaul, some core mechanics have gotten cleaned up, some new features are getting added in. Assuming that nothing has accidentally broken in this release, it will probably be the last version update before I try to push for kickstarter. I just need to settle that whole art-budget thing.

I'd like to have it out by month's end, if my free time allows. I envy people who do this for a living and thus can actually turn out content on a predictable timeline.
