FrankenFourth Public Alpha

As I mentioned in our most recent (as of this post) Age of Worms play report, we've assembled a kind of public alpha document, which you can see and comment on here. It contains enough information (races, classes, monsters, etc) to play for at least the first three levels, though you could pretty easily bullshit at least a few more beyond that point.

We're currently most interested in hearing feedback about the mechanics. More content (races, class, talents, monsters, magic items, treasure tables, everything from A Sundered World, etc) will be gradually added over time.

In particular we're really curious what people think about the cleric and wizard, Vitality and Wounds, and armor. I've been gradually tweaking Vitality and Wounds, trying to get it to a point where characters are a bit more durable than their D&D counterparts, because I think it's silly for a cleric to run around poke-healing the rest of the party x times per day.

We're also trying out the abstract armor rules, because Chris feels that Adair's armor of 6 (5 from plate, +1 from Abjurer) makes him "too safe" (and I agree). Gonna see if reducing it to 4 (3 from heavy armor, +1 from Abjurer) makes him actually worry about getting hit, without making him too easy to take him out.

Feel free to share it with your group, play it yourself, and comment on whatever on the Google Doc, here, or the FrankenFourth community over on G+.

We've added most of our stuff to Tabletop Library!

A Sundered World is out (and also available in dead-tree format)! If you for some reason don't want the entire setting, you can just snag the races and classes.

The Ghost has manifested!

By fan demand, we've mashed all of our 10+ Treasure volumes into one big magic item book, making it cheaper and more convenient to buy in print (which you can now do).

Lichfield is available for public consumption. If you want a concise adventure with a Silent Hill feel, be sure to check it out! Primordial Machine is also out, so if you want to catch a glimpse of A Sundered World<
