We’ve finished taking notes for the Player Consent chapter in Covenant’s playtest rules and are almost ready to write it! Find out more below the fold.

Here’s what we want to talk about this week:

  • The work that we did this week
  • Our progress on Covenant’s playtest rules
  • How to become a playtester

We’ve finished taking notes for the Player Consent chapter and we’re about halfway done through organizing them. Once they’re organized, all we have to do it write them up!

We’re pretty much in the home stretch here. If we can get our notes organized and start writing by tomorrow, then we’ll have a little over two weeks to finish the Player Consent chapter before our Feb. 28, 2021 deadline.

And that’s it, really. Once that chapter is done, the playtest rules are done, and we start distributing it to our playtesters.

Do you want to become a playtester? Just drop us a line at, and we’ll put you on the list when the rules are finished at the end of February.

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