Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

The Dream Pod 9 Staff wishes everyone a Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Progress, progress, progress...

Deadlines are great.

 

They make you knuckle down and make decisions that have been put off for far too long. Here's a rules decision that has been made in terms of the Living Rule book, and some of the thinking and process that went into it. This rules decision is one that developed from one concept to another as I delved into the thinking behind what a Stealth technology is and what it does, and doesn't do. 

 

I'm going to use the Stealth trait as the example because it is one trait that there has been a lot of back and forth work on. The trait has settled nicely, though the why and the how of the rule, and how it functions in the game, is worthy of some discussion.

 

Living Rulebook Beta sent to layout, and stuff.

There are times when you are sad when you're wrong, and this is one of those times. Back before the Kickstarter I said that there would be an update of the Beta rules soon after the kickstarter, and then I got to work reading e-mails, making notes, and blitzing the forums, and I don't mean the DP9 forums, but forums everywhere.

 

And I got feedback by the ton. Some was errata along the lines of "I think this is what you want this to mean" to the always excellent "this example is backwards" to my favorite "We play tested this and had a lot of fun, but had trouble understanding X".  Some sent in full battle reports and some just commented on forum posts. There have been gut checks and statistical arguements galore and conversations both online, on public transit (random gamer encounters), and in game stores. Everyone I talk to has their own perspective on the game and what it can, and can't be.
