We’re done with the notetaking for Covenant’s first playtest adventure! Find out more below the fold.
Here’s what we want to talk about this week:
- Taking a detour to write quickstart rules for a patron
- How to become a playtester
We were supposed to start writing the playtest adventure this week. However, one of our patrons asked for a set of quickstart rules. We would normally finish the adventure before starting a new project like this. However, this patron has assembled a group to playtest the adventure, and fully half of them said that the playtest rules confused them. They also want to start playtesting by mid-April, so we decided to jump on a simplified set of rules, instead.
We’ve written 32 pages of the quickstart rules so far. In many cases, we were able to boil down half a page or more in the playtest rules into a single sentence or paragraph in the quickstart rules.
All we have left to do in the quickstart rules is summarize the bids and conditions. We hope to have that all done by Monday, April 5, after which we’ll start the playtest adventure.
We will release the quickstart rules when we finish them, but you can get a sneak peek at them by becoming a patron.
