    there's so much stuff in your original post that i guess we'll have to deal with it bit by bit : D Quote from ferny: “ pg 65 the vault - missing a maxim pg 75 summary - arguably this is missing victory conditions and number of turns? ” these two comments go together. for us it is imperative that certain sections (like Vault and Summary) fit onto a single page. also, we dont want that single page to be intensely packed either, since other languages are more verbose than English, so we need to sav…

  • that is precisely my point: if the Essence sources are in latex (as opposed to inDesign or Scribus), your translated texts can be compiled almost as easily as we do the slim books. that's the real infrastructural innovation that we are piloting with EW.

    all points above have been addressed (thank you Calcathin). please keep them coming!

  • thanks @Macicior hopefully thanks to the work of the translation team it'll become easier to have EW batreps in other languages too, for a truly beginner-friendly experience. if there's anything that we can to do make translations easier, let me know. @Ghiznuk knows that this summer i'll be pestering you all with many translation "encouragements" : )

    Quote from wombat: “Me thinks that the EoS Cannon ( Advance Rules ) needs to be toned down ! " Cough " 3D6 + 1 damage " Cough " seems somewhat of an overkill. ” thank you wombat! corrected in the currently available version. Quote from ferny: “ pg numbers based on PDF counter not 'book' numbers: pg4 What is EoW? line 5 "magical spellcasters" - arguably magical here is tautological and could be removed. pg 4 - final paragraph - reference to Alpha and Gold, but neither term is defined. May not be …

    Quote from FourCartridge: “hi! I've been looking to get into the game for a while now and have had trouble actually getting in something (I got in a few games back when this was just the Quick-Start version), but want to start with the basic rules from here after so many games of WAP. Is there a common resource to arrange Essence games I am missing? ” hi there! you can check this thread: Essence of War - gamefinder & tournaments for voice chats during games on Tabletop SImulator (and other platf…

  • well, for EW the change was much more structural. if you update the texts in the FB rulebook but keep the same infrastructure (of using inDesign), you would only solve the symptoms, not the disease. for EW we were lucky enough to have more freedom of movement. there were fewer people invested in the previous work, so there were only a couple of roadblocks. it took a bit of fighting, and quite a few scars, but in the end we managed to clear them. i think other teams would have much more entrenche…

  • bas - yep, i will definitely put those "calls to action" into a dedicated thread, that's a very good point. pelle - im not sure we have the same definition of "slim" book? (Hidden Content) also, concerning the talking in circles, i agree. we shouldnt be talking. we should be doing. that's kind of my entire point : )

    also, thank you a lot @ferny for all the most useful feedback. much appreciated. many of the points you raise only need implementation, so i wont discuss them. for now i will only comment on two crucial things that you mentioned: (1) more miniature pictures: hell yeah! the current pictures arent at the right quality (pixelly resolution) or the right ratio (full page). we only put them there to show that we can. in other words: expect a forum-wide contest to source pictures for the final version …

  • Quote from Pellegrim: “Quote from piteglio: “if you dont think that conventions are important for the spread of T9A ” Think everyone agreed these are key; and we were discussing on how 9th Age could focus on lowering the threshold for the game to be exposed on those ” no, sure, i was emphasising that thin line between agreeing in a thread on the one side, and on the other side making arrangements. as for lowering the threshold - see my post above. the Project has put out a type of game that you …

  • and for those of you who rather enjoy seeing how the glass is half full, there's still some use: foyUq3M.png i would be happy to give details on each of these SEVEN ways in which the YOU can help the spread of T9A. there's a already lot of brainstorming threads on "what someone else should do to improve the situation", so it would be very nice if this thread, for once, could lead to some ACTUAL OUTCOMES. i guess we would all enjoy the results : )

    Quote from Gingersmali: “Is it intentional for the orcs in the boarder patrol to have DS 3? It would seem that both the Orcs and the Goblins have shields "baked in" however only the goblins get the +1 DS. ” Orcs have AP 1, so they are considered as having Shield AND Spear. you would expect Spears to give them Fight in Extra Rank as well. FiER is out of the OG Basic Patrol for both simplicity and balance reasons. but when it comes to the Advanced Armylist... ; )

  • and for those of you who feel they have not enough cash and not enough skill, there's still a TON you can do for the project: yGAkbMT.png

  • @bas_2312, when the new Legendary version is out, i will be printing it in large numbers and distribute it to shops and privates. but i fear you might be underestimating the amount layout work needed. it's more than update and copypaste, especially given the type of software used. that's why for Essence of War we switched to a completely different infrastructure. also, for those of you who are short on cash, but still want to contribute, what about the following: Xcg8e8E.png
