Coming up on the final release!

Sorry about radio silence, but we're coming up on a final release. The system seems solid and assuming we don't get any feedback that might require rewriting rules, we're on to adding art and final formatting.

The first supplement is still a bit out from being done and I'd like to release them together. But it's exciting to be able to say that one of the books is almost done!

I also discovered the Kindle version isn't updating properly, which may require pulling it from Amazon and for us to republish it under a new listing. If this happens, we'll be trying to find a way to get the final release to those who bought the Kindle edition at no charge. Hang tight for details!

An apology for the lack of updates

We ended up skipping the Developer Diary live stream over the weekend as there's no additional news to speak of yet. My primary play test, a LARP based out of Galesburg, IL, is still in the process of character creation. There's a few other people using the system that haven't run into any issues, but their games haven't gotten into combat yet.

A large chunk of my time has been going through and converting content from the Galesburg LARP's old system to this system so they can continue their game without too many hurdles, and the latest hurdle is the idea of creating (or summoning?) a living construct such as a golem or an elemental. I hadn't planned on someone wanting to do this sort of thing when the Powers system was created, and creating a creature under a player's control that acts independently is pretty significant in regards to game balance. I'm looking into ways to make this work in a capacity that's fair and balanced, and will likely include the resulting Power(s) in the Core or at least a later supplement. After all, no sense in someone else having to go through the trouble of doing it a second time if I've already done the work.

 

Developer Diary Live Stream Tomorrow!

So I'm doing my first Developer Diary Live Stream tomorrow once I get out of work (so around 7PM Central). If you follow us on Twitch you'll be alerted once I'm live.

Talking points will include:
Why I decided to create a game system and the circumstances that led to me self publishing.
Why I'm releasing under a Creative Commons license.
A general road map for the Alpha Play Test and plans for entering Beta.
Details on how the play tests are going.
Q&A from those in chat.

If you can't watch the live stream and have questions, please email me at contact@larpityourself.com
