A new version of the Shareware Edition is here!
List of changes below…
– Added the Leap trait
– Shotguns now multiply their firing rate within optimum range, rather than multiplying their hits
– Magic spells and psychic powers no longer require a Quality check. The Sorcerer trait has been removed and units with the Sorcerer trait have had their points adjusted
– Renamed the Watch action to Overwatch
– Completely rewrote the rules for Watch / Overwatch. Reacting is much clearer now, with specific examples. The changes to this rule should make play much more dynamic
Slow trait now means figures can’t attack consecutively with a slow weapon, instead of not being able to react with it.
– Items that require an action to use now require a Use Ability action, the same as spells / psychic powers.
– Numerous spelling and formatting errors fixed
– New credits section at the front, and formatting adjustments made to the start of the book
– Small story pieces added to the ends of chapters (these are still being tweaked)
– HUGE point cost alterations and re-balances.
– Many spells and abilities have had their rules tweaked (such as the Gateway, Void, and Entropic Vortex spells)
– Various squad sizes tweaked. Most squads now have a minimum squad size that forces their ‘naked’ cost to over 50pts
– Some stat adjustments to specific units (for example, EDF heavy troopers have a better armour stat)
– Weapon stats have been tweaked, for example some Hell weapons have lost the Slow trait
– All human armies have had weapon re-balances to be more consistent with each other
– Every weapon and attack ability in the game has had a complete points cost review
– Lost Marine and EDF Engineers now cause drones within 3″ to replace Mindless with Fearless.
– The Tech Glove now allows an engineer to Give Orders to a drone unit up to 24″ away.
Lost Battalion Specific Updates
– Replaced the Elite Guard’s temporary flight ability with the Leap trait.
– Renamed Grunt to REAPER (Rapid Engagement Anti-PErsonnel Robot), to complement the Martian Authority’s more advanced ERASER.
– Adjusted Lost army list presentation; altered formatting, added flavour text for individuals
– Added new options for HERP shoulder mounted weaponry.
– The Blast Field Cannon now costs more and can only be taken by Individuals
Soul Artifacts now require a Use Ability action to use
Probably a bunch of other changes which I forgot to write down… I got a little too into it by the end.
