A Barons of Braunstein Update!

Tue 29 August 2017 by Olde House Rules from Pits Perilous

So first off, the new and improved Appendix II (Tactical Combat) offers alternate rules for greater lethality reminiscent of what we attempted in Opherian Scrolls, but also a table of situational modifiers tied to specific weapons when wielded in certain ways. Now combat is faster and more deadly. But only when the characters (and their enemies) can position themselves for maximum advantage and stay alert. Thus, individual weapons matter more and without sacrificing the game's trademark simplicity and ease of play. Next, Appendix III: Diving Spirits, introduces period-specific divination, whether reading entrails or casting runes. And even Christian characters might receive visions in the mystic tradition. Now this is a historical game, so every effort has been made to ensure that this can be interpreted as mere coincidence (much as it doubtless was in the real world) or taken as the real thing.
