I got some great feedback from 1km1kt.net on my “Book of the Gods” which I plan to keep in mind. It boils down to three points:
- Lack of Play Advice
- Missing Quick References (tables, lists, etc.)
- Too much all at once/overwhelming
Nearly all of these faults are due to the way I split the writing of the setting from the writing/design of the rules. I think ultimately Lost Heroes will benefit from this, but v0.19 as a standalone setting book doesn’t.
My plan next now is continue what I was doing and do my mini-survey of the current popular free builds of Fudge and then produce a “lite” rule system for Lost Heroes. But this will contain the “Quick References” missing from Book of the Gods so the basic system may be light, but it my be quite long.
