WiP: YD3e – picking up the pace again

Playing catch-up on emails and admin type stuff after a few days away. Have a bunch of hand scribbled notes for YD3e after a raft of ideas on the combat chapter I’m still working on – new hero bonus for Martial Arts (way of life rather than a mechanic for meta gamers to crank up damage).  New weapons based on HTMD (tangible light technology as introduced in the novels Edge and Dog Eat Dog).  Looking forward to cracking on with the 3rd edition later today.

Snippet of daily thoughts: A morning in the Sky Bunker playing catch-up whilst storm clouds skid overhead between fat rays of sunlight. Awesome time up North. Looking forward to getting down to the harbourside at some point today. Feel like I’ve not been there for weeks.

WiP: YD3e, healing & surgery done, combat now

YD 3rd edition. Totally nailed healing and surgery yesterday. Batted it out to the review crew and made a start on the combat chapter. Most of it stripped out so as not to clash with CoC7e systems but keeping some sections as optional extras. Have totally reworked the idea of hit-locations, armour and cover and concealment to make it very fast flowing. // Had a video call with Mr Hollywood earlier this week. Great catch-up to review the idea of the Yellow Dawn movie. He’s now into writing the treatment. Good feeling.

Snippet of daily thoughts: Sunlight. Where does the time go. I’ve spent days up here in the Sky Bunker, barely leaving – stepping out for food or a nocturnal rendezvous. Hours blurring through periods of activity and polyphasic sleep. Making good progress. Stepping onto a flight tonight – few days of down time, rest brain.
