Preliminary rulebook v0.5 on dropbox
How time flies. After a year of being focused on Rune Quest, I will try to shift some of the loving care back in this direction. Meanwhile, I'll have to ignore the large box full of Call of Cthulhu miniatures still awaiting a base coat.
While slowly getting back up to speed after this one year lapse, I notice I have never put the last version of the rules - that's version 0.5 - online. Here it is, not yet finished, but a lot more complete than version 0.3 that had been published up to now.
I will start splitting the effort from today onwards, focusing exclusively on the rules and its effects on game play on our personal game table, rather than putting some of the effort into the effect these rules might have on other people playing with these rules. We have been paying attention at both so far, which definitely slows development down, but it is a good thing that the foundation has been created with the general player in mind. However, we now enter the realm of tiny details, and trying to invent a rule for every eventuality tunred out - and turns out - to be madness. People will have to find their own way of indicating status and so on. Since I have no intention to actually provide - sell or otherwise - game markers, I think this is only sensible. Given the limited number of followers, I think there will be little objection.
I intend to make a set of markers - it's high on the to do list - and I will use small coins with coloured dots, in a later stage I might order custom ones from Litko.
