Sneak peeks into 9th Age 2.0

Post  squalie on Sat May 20, 2017 11:58 am

I'll try to update as they release more. I've been saying for years the WS should be a bigger factor in combat, looks like that's a big change!

This change seems like a HUGE deal. What I mean by this is it will take a re-balancing of the entire game, top to bottom, to make it work. Special rules, points cost, stat lines, all would have to be changed... wouldn't they? I don't see how they could possibly include something like this and have 2.0 ready on time.

I think they have it planned out. Dwarfs get a better defensive WS than offensive and Elves get a better offensive weapons skill than defensive kinda thing. That's a VERY simplified example.

Oh yeah that part seems simple enough, and shouldn't pose a huge problem. But are they also planning on changing the to hit table? That's the change that seems crazy intensive.
