Sword and Board 3rd Draft

http://home.comcast.net/~danbuter/SwordBoard.pdf

I've got the mechanics done for now. I need to add flavor text, and format everything. I'd love comments from people, especially if you see some errata.

The game is a 2d6 system, but it has a lot of flavoring from DnD. It's amazing how much work it takes to get even a short game put together, and hopefully I'm not missing anything blatantly obvious.

Once I do the final format, I'm not sure if I should go with Letter or Digest size. I've actually gotten some art to add in, and I might use some Creative Commons stuff as well. I plan on eventually putting this on Lulu, so at least me and my friends would have copies. But if others would be interested, I'd be pretty damn happy about it.

Things I'm sorta considering adding:
Mercenaries
Mass Combat
Strongholds

But I'm not really sure that material is worth the hassle. There are some fine rules already existing in DnD and the clones that I can use.

I'd like to see some descriptive text as well as some artwork. Right now it feels a bit textbooky. Your mileage may very, of course.

Up to now, I was just getting the rules together. And I write technical reports, so it reflects on what I've done.

Nice work. Clean, simple and to the point.
