Beta version finished!

October 5, 2009 1 comment

It’s been a whole month already and the game is almost complete. After another round of playtest I figured that the Setting for the game might need some work. But the game mechanics worked fine, although I did a few changes compared to the second draft.

  • A full new layout with columns and A5 sized pages
  • Academics-skill was replaced with more useful Investigation-skill
  • Some more information about the Branches, the Order and the game in general

The beta version can be found here and the character sheet can be found here.

Any comments are more than welcome.


Thought before the Playtest

September 10, 2009 Leave a comment

Tomorrow we’re going to playtest the Knights and see how it’ll work. Few things I might need to focus on:

  • Balance of the Branches
    • each Branch has a different skill specializations and abilities, they need to be balanced
  • Talent-mechanism
    • too many or too little Talents, are they too powerful?
  • Amount of skillpoints
    • are there enough skillpoints, and are they divided well?
  • Missions
    • are the Objectives clear enough and are the Obstacles difficult enough?

I decided to write up a new Mission for the playtest. I’m thinking of having about 5 different Missions for the complete game. Any ideas on those are more than helpful.

First draft complete!

After a long week, the first draft is finally complete. The game is now called “The Knights of the Lily – A Game of Secrecy and Noble Intentions”. Or TKOTL for short 🙂

Here is a link for the game, and here is a link for the character sheet v.1

Comments are more than welcome. I’ll playtest this next week and post a second draft.
