Reality Check: August 24 2020

The next DoubleZero book, what’s this Medieval Mind thing, and hey what about Hippogryph? Here’s the Reality Check for Monday August 24 2020.

The Medieval Mind Series

For those who haven’t figured it out, this series is an experiment. The statement about how my love of history grew out of tabletop roleplaying was absolutely true. Aside from that. sometimes you need to throw things at the wall to see what sticks. Other times you do things to mix it up so you don’t get bored. Once in a great while you do something as equal parts performance art and cryptic statement. This was a little bit of each of those.

DoubleZero: The Gun List

The first non-setting supplement for DoubleZero is coming soon. The Gun List is what it says, tables upon tables of firearms statistics for use with the system. It also features alternative, optional, and revised mechanics for firearms. including simplified Range, Concealment, and Jam. For those who want to create their own firearms, this volume also acts as a guide for doing that. Currently in the proofreading and layout phase.

Hippogryph Codex

The Hippogryph Codex is currently in the “oh wait, that’s an easier way to explain that, let me go back and revise 14 different sections and then make sure everything is consistent with the new terminology” phase of development. It’s all polish at this point. There’s a lot riding on this one, so I’m putting extra care into making it as solid out of the gate as possible. Not much longer. Thanks for your patience. I promise it will be worth it, because this system kicks all kinds of booty.
