Okay - the rules for Terminus Front are in a more-or-less playable state, should anyone care to take them for a spin. There are still lots of bits to be hammered out - there is zero attempt to balance anything here, so there may be a lot of weirdness for certain things like damage vs armored vehicles, etc. I also have to flesh stuff out like the actual content of the Travel Deck, so the hexcrawling stuff is basically non-useable at the moment. But there is enough there to run the test scenario.

I also simplified a few things like how guns work (especially the fully automatic fire stuff) and will probably streamline more as I playtest it.

Speaking of which - the playtest scenario, which I posted over the weekend, is here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B4m1E0YfmYNrczNxWXg4ZWxJSWM

I think this is at the point where if anyone wants, they could take the rules and run the scenario. Feel free to do so, and give me feedback :)

Also - if anyone would like to help me playtest, either online or locally (for you Seattle area people) let me know.

Depression and miserably hot weather kept me indoors all day. Slept and watched ambient Brian Eno soundcapes. Could have been worse, I guess.

I'm curious about Tsutumo Nihei's post-BLAME! work, but everything I've seen looks disappointingly polished. A large reason why BLAME! works for me is because of Nihei's beautifully visceral line work. Sometimes the way Nihei attacks the page is utterly savage - I don't see much of that energy in his later work. Makes me sad.

Took advantage of some insomnia last night to bash out the rest of the playtest scenario for Terminus Front last night. This is not totally complete, but should give anyone curious some idea of where this is headed. Not sure how much there is in there mechanically to get feedback on but I'd be curious to see what some people think.

Obviously - if you plan on playing this scenario at some point don't click...because spoilers and shit.

Stuff I Love About Michael Moorcock:
Chapter 3 of Dead God's Homecoming ends with Elric and Moonglum drinking magic wine with Sepiriz, who tells him he has to face the Dukes of Chaos (including Arioch). One page later the pair are flying magic horses to Pan Tang and fighting weird hawk-lion things...and six pages later he's waving Stormbringer in Arioch's face.

These days that same narrative, written by another author, would be spaced out over 900 pages.

Sitting here murdering orks and wondering if I should eat today.
