2014-03-31 : AW:Dark Age: No Countdown Yet!
You may have noticed from no countdown that the playtest document isn't ready yet. I had many dead ends to map, it turns out! I still have more.
Several things that I thought were out are back in, including stat substitution moves, oaths, and holdings-as-such. There are several wholly new things, including Blood-moves, a new system for experience, and a system for battle. The new list of basic moves I posted last week is already outdated!
I'm still working on bringing the original 5 playbooks up to date, let alone the MC's material and supporting pages, let ALONE the new playbooks and the rest of the to-do list.
This is what you should expect, by the way. All the games I've ever created have been like this. What's new and exciting with this game is how fast it's going. Between the groundwork Apocalypse World has already laid and the large number of eager playtesters, I've accomplished in one month what should legitimately have been six months' work, and no sign yet of slowing down.
Oh! And one more thing. The artist I'm working with is my very talented brother Drew Baker. He hasn't done any work for the game yet, and probably won't soon, but here's his painting of Eowyn and the Nazgul to tide us over.
