Ah. Now that I have a chance, and you pointing out a change, along with comparing to my pdf copy of the previous version, I can see the differences.

It starts off with Archetype character creation (take the sample characters it includes, and either adjust it with 500 points or the GM gives bonuses each session to develop)

Then the point buy system. Followed by the sample characters which are moved up to this section. And then the life module system.

the characters themselves had changed a bit (most of them) to a lot (the elemental) as they were rebuilt with point buy rather than the modules.

Peace of Blake be with y'all, that ought to do so much just on its own.

Okay now that is something I can get behind.  I still wish they had taken the opportunity to do more but such is life and maybe they are just taking their time in considering where they want to go from here.

Memo to self: update PDF when I get home.

It looks more retro comic but I like that new reprint cover.

While scanning through, I found another improvement. And it deals with the whole skill points issue in stage 3.

So reminder. Old way. 30 XP per skill. Track number of skills per field so you know how many you’ll get the bonus of 6 XP back.

New way. Spend 24 XP per skill in each field. But it grants you 30 XP for each skill. Same result, but much cleaner and faster.

It's never a bad week to be offline, brother.


Not that we didn't miss you, of course.
Thought I might get a rocket ride when I was a child.          We are the wild youth, 
But it was a lie, that I told myself                                          Chasing visions of our futures.
When I needed something good.                                            One day we'll reveal the truth,
At 17, I had a better dream; now I'm 33, and it isn't me.        That one will die before he gets there.

But I'd think of something better if I could

It wasn't a great week either... it was good seeing family, but under those circumstances, not as good as it could have been.

I've made a point of asking Cubby once every couple of weeks or so, but gotten no info.

I concur. We went from super crunch to super lite. YMMV.

Assuming no delays, Cubby says October.
