The Dux Britanniarum Compendium

Post by TroubleAtTheMill » Tue Mar 15, 2016 9:49 am

Since it will leak out on the next Meeples and Miniatures podcast (due out today-ish) I may as well let folks know now:

With Rich Clarke's blessing, and assistance from my partner in Dux Britanniarum related crime Andy Hawes, I am working on "The Dux Britanniarum Compendium" for publication by TFL hopefully not TOO much later in the year.

Contents will include:
- at least 6 new playtested raid scenarios (which are designed like the current ones to be highly replayable)
- a more detailed approach to battles
- a bunch of new character tables to add depth to your campaign annals
In addition we'll reprint my terrain rules and possibly a couple of other things (with permission) from the TFL Specials, and there may be other stuff yet as we play-test and bounce ideas around.

At least 40 pages, possibly more, to the usual DB production standards. Will be released as a reasonably priced PDF, and we're looking at ways of getting you a print copy that don't break Rich or my bank as well.

Great news - thanks for the work. Definitely one I'll be getting. I'd be more than happy to settle for a pdf, though if a hard copy were available I would consider it.

Old fashioned me would prefer a hard copy, but I'll buy the .pdf as well.

An excellent idea in either format, although I must admit to a preference for hard copy...

This does sound good and, despite owning several pdfs, I would also go for a hard copy.

It's still a WIP.

As it contains 6 (at least) new raid scenarios, and potentially a bunch of new setups for battles, Andy and I need to playtest each one enough that we're happy the instructions don't assume you can read our minds, and the balance isn't broken, before we hand them out to other folks to playtest. And with Hereward show to run, among other things, it's all been a trifle mad in Fenland :D

Progress is being made, and a target date of (predictably) Easter may or may not be set. :D
