By no means finished, but it will be. It will be.
A little teaser. I'm going to try and blast through this during half-term next week. Not that I get half-term off, but my wife does, which lifts a bit of the weight of the day-to-day grindstone.

I will accept help, and suggestions, and my need to tap some expertise re: layout and document preparation, but even if this is largely a solo effort, it will be released into the wild soon.

What other systems avoid the "miss, miss, miss, miss, etc." tedium* of some combat systems, and gives a 'result' in every round?

*It's not always tedium, especially in systems where anything other than a 'miss' has a fair chance of finishing the fight. But you get what I'm getting at...

Thanks to Strike to Stun* I have stumbled across a fantastic new-ish WFRP blog - Awesome Lies , by Gideon. I have been enjoying his WFRP Manifesto series, which looks at the history and design of WFRP1e, but it is also the home of his excellent The Enemy Wi...
