PDC Playtest Draft Released!

PDC Playtest Draft

The first version of the new rules to see the light of day. I hope to playtest these at the PDC I'll attend this month. Several critical pieces remain undone, including a functioning oracle. This document runs an alpha playtest, meaning you really need me there to run it for you. The beta playtest—one where the document provides enough information for you to run it without me—begins Saturday, 1 November, 2:00 PM EDT, at GASPcon 9. That version will include a full land description for the Land of the Three Rivers.

Another Status Update

I'm scheduling alpha playtests for late August. For those of you in the Pittsburgh area, the Fifth World is scheduled for GASPcon 9, where I'll run the first public playtest, marking the beginning of the beta playtest phase. Right now, we have rules, but we need our first setting filled in to make them playable.
