During the 2014 BASHCon session, my players read through my rough draft of the rules, adorned with art and expensive color cover pages, and asked unforeseen questions. I have been able to come up with quick answers, luckily still working in the matrix of the basic rules system in front of them. The players that nodded, smiling, at those answers, then quickly returned to reading or jotting of annotations on the Character Sheets, tell me that I am not done. Yes, I know, that is play-testing. But more importantly for me, the questions are telling me what the players are finding interesting. Then looking at where the questions are in the text, I begin to fill a bit hoping to satisfy the future reader. AND I want to explore into the topic a it more anyway.
I doubt that I will ever have a game system that is perfect, but none to date have I wanted to present so much within it. It will still be rather succinctly written. Amateur game-theorists, the miniature-dependent, and fans of semantics will probably not be overjoyed. Still, I am dying to see what it exactly that I am making here.
Of course my intended release schedule is shot, but hey.
