Today is the public release of Covenant’s playtest rules, everyone! It’s been a long time coming. You can download from Google Docs.
These rules are free, and you can use thesm however you want. However, we do want a few things from you if you do.First, use these rules to make characters and run a game of Covenant (several, if possible) with your friends.Second, answer these questions for us, based on your experiences playing the game:
What did you like about the rules?
What did you not like about the rules?
What do you want to be clearer?
What do you want to change?
What do you want to add?
What do you want to remove?
What rules did you ignore?
Do you think you could play a full game session without looking at the rules?
Were you able to play the way you wanted?
Did you feel like you were in control of the game and the story?
Remember, these rules will change. We want your input to know how to change them.
If you have any problems or questions, please email us at email@example.com or drop us a message on our Discord server at https://discord.gg/VJKJBUd. We will respond to them as promptly as possible.That’s about it for now. Talk to you on Wednesday, or tomorrow if you’re a patron (hint, hint)!
Welcome to Radio Free Covenant, a podcast about the science-fiction roleplaying game Covenant and the urban fantasy novel Crossing the Line, soon to be published by Black Opal Books.
Thanks for stopping by! I wish we had more to tell you. We released Covenant’s playtest rules to the public on Monday and are hanging fire until we can get feedback from our playtesters.
The good news is that we don’t have to scramble to finish the playtest rules anymore, so we finally have some free time! We’re going to occupy it by holding brainstorming sessions for the game on our Twitch page. We held the first one today, and we’ll hold another one on Sunday at 4 p.m. Eastern, 1 p.m. Pacific. Stop by and ask questions in Twitch chat, and we’ll answer them live on air!
