DP9 Online Store Summer Promotion

This Summer Dream Pod 9 has decided to do a special free shipping promotion on the Dream Pod 9 Online Store from now until the end of September 2014.

Adventures in editing

There's a phrase in writing that refers to the editing process and I believe it goes like this: "Kill your darlings". That is a quote from Stephan King and while I doubt that Mr King was thinking in rules terms I know a bit of what he means. You can look up the whole quote if you like but those three words have been a bit of  mantra when building the rules.

Time and time again through discussion after discussion each part of the rules has been put through the wringer with the same question every time; "Does keeping (this) or removing it make the game better?". 

It's a tricky question because better is subjective. Luckily I wear some different hats and so I have some competing lenses that I view the rules from.

Getting Beta ready

Within the next month we'll have the Beta rules ready for the next edition of Heavy Gear. We're pretty excited around the pod since this means a brand new start and a great opportunity for new players to join in playing Heavy Gear on the tabletop. 

The hardest thing about talking to new players is communicating what the game is, how it plays, and what it feels like to experience it.
