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

  • Finishing the playtest rules
  • What comes next after this
  • How to become a playtester


What it says on the tin, folks – Covenant’s playtest rules are done! We finished the Player Consent chapter on Tuesday. That was the last thing we had to do, and we got it in five days under our Feb. 28, 2021 deadline.


We distributed the playtest rules to our patrons this week (you can become a patron for just $1 a month, too, hint hint). We’ll start distributing them to anyone who wants to become a playtester on Monday.

After that, it’s sit back and wait. We have some ideas to improve the game, but we want to get input from our playtesters before we do anything with the game.

We do have a couple of ideas to keep ourselves busy until then. Sazzy and Sean tried streaming a brainstorming session on Twitch this week. We hope to make that a weekly thing. We also stream video games every Sunday at 4 p.m. Eastern, 1 p.m. Pacific and show anime and movies on our Discord server every week. Check those out!


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.
