Hey everyone, this is just a quick post to let readers know that I have not fallen off the face of the planet. Real-life stuff, including family issues and work, have kept me from being as active on the site as I’d hope for the last two weeks, but I’m still here and still toiling in obscurity to get a new version of Dragon Hack together for your enjoyment.
The good news is that the Dragon Hack Version 1.75 Playtest pdf is about 80 percent complete, and should be released this week!
My current hope is to get a text-only playtest document out the door by sometime tomorrow (Sept. 1), and then put out a call for specialization ideas and specialization stunts on the web site.
Basically, all the extra details people want from Dragon Hack are more than I have time for right now. So, my plan is to release a playtest document that is only the 10 “basic” class talents and 12 traditional fantasy backgrounds this week. Nine of the 12 backgrounds are built, and all the class talents have been added to the draft document. I just need to add optional race talents and a few odds and ends and I’ll get that out ASAP.
When Dragon Hack 2.0 is officially released it will include:
12-15 fantasy backgrounds.
10-12 class talents.
2-3 Specializations for each of the class talents.
40-50 “new” spells*
So let that be a teaser that I’ll soon be asking you, the reader, to contribute to Dragon Hack’s development by playtesting it with DARPG and pitching new specializations here on the website. If I like your pitch (and the community approves), it could be included (with credit) in the official 2.0 compiled pdf. Ok, back to work. I’ll post again soon!
* Pathfinder spells reskinned for the AGE system.
