Not too much to report on the playtest rules this week. We’re still working on the Hazards chapter for Covenant. It has all sort of fun ways for your character to die. Here’s a sample:

  • Falling: Your character goes splat.
  • Strangulation: Your character drowns, chokes to death, or just embolizes in vacuum.
  • Escaping Restraints: Sadly not a way for your character to die.
  • Food and Water: Your character starves or dies of thirst.

Next week, we’re going to work on the rules for survival, which is how the environment can kill your character.

That’s it for now. Talk to you next week!
