Sword & Scoundrel v0.2.0

Post by Agamemnon » 15 Nov 2018, 10:36

As the prophecy foretold, Sword & Scoundrel has risen from its slumber. The current release is the largest and most complete work Grand Heresy has ever put out, just shy of 250 pages. From the player-side, it is complete in core functionality. Basic mechanics, character creation, connections, social conflict, combat, gear, everything you need to actually grab on and start playing.

The accompanying character sheet will be released shortly, along with roll20 support updated in time. The next step is getting the GM section finished and released, but if you have prior GM experience, you can likely manage the rules as listed. This is especially true if you have experience with similar games like Burning Wheel, The Riddle of Steel, or even various Powered by the Apocalypse games.

Grab it while it’s hot.


Forum note: I fully expect some typos and errors to be found, but I figured it's easier to let you lot find them and yell at me than keep picking at it forever.

Danke.

Feel free to find any errors/typos/etc. I'll probably let you guys collect my errors for a week or so and then update the PDF.

In which thread should we identify the errors/typos/ etc?

For instance: Page 14 - Regarding Proficiencies, second point (in Combat Pools) : at the end of the paragraph where we read "(...) then your Combat Pool is based on your proficiency alone.", should read "(...) then you're Combat Pool is based on your Attribute alone.".
