Quick Site Update
Playtest Pack Update
The Playtest Packs have been updated with the new rules changes made after the last round of playtesting at Connecticon. The major change is that Thingies now grant dice from the GM’s pool, rather than automatic Skulls. People were succeeding far too easily on most rolls. This has actually been an issue for quite some time, and I hope this will finally solve it.
At some point I will finish the Buffy/Twilight parody and summer camp scenarios. I’ve also got plans for an Invader Zim scenario, that will likely be a con-only kind of thing, lest Viacom’s lawyers get wind of it.
Anyway, check ’em out here.
After getting the font embedding working properly in Firefox (apparently it doesn’t like it when you try to call an embedded font that’s on a different domain than the page being displayed), I installed Opera, Chrome, and Safari, just for laughs.
I was surprised to find out that they all display the site very nearly exactly the same. The long, drawn-out struggle I was expecting to have to undertake never happened.
In short, to all the various browser developers out there: go you. You guys are finally on the right track about supporting HTML and CSS standards. No one’s 100% of the way there yet, but most everyone is close enough for the casual user not to notice.
I’ve posted the Rules chapter on the Spookybeans forums. You can find them here.
Onward to Adventure!
The new Pulp Era site has been set up. Ben will continue to add all of the content previously located on the old site. Stay tuned, true believers!
