Beta version of the rules?

Tue 20 Feb 2018, 12:01

Considering the version we have is called an "Alpha", does anyone know if there are any plans to release a "Beta" version with some rules changes, prior to the full release?

In previous Fria Ligan Kickstarters (Coriolis, TftL, Mechatron), this wasn't the case. We got an Alpha, and then the full release.

However, I feel like this game could do with another draft version, as the rules feel a bit less polished than previous Year Zero games at the "Alpha" stage.

Or make a list of some of the changes that they are planning, so we could test those.

Hello!

There will be a Beta, yes, released to backers at least a few weeks before we go to print. And before that (very soon!), we will share three big setting chapters to backers.

2 weeks has passed. Can you specify how long "very soon" is :) ?

The translation got delayed a little due to a computer mishap, but three big setting chapters are now fully translated and laid out in Swedish. As soon as we get the final English chapter back from proofing, we will layout it and share it with you all! Hopefully before the end of the week. :)

Great :)
Looking forward to read the setting.
But remember to mail this to us late pledgers. Not just Kickstarter "backers only" update post ;)

This is a little trickier than one might think - the Pledge Manager platform doesn't really give us the tools to easily email late backers. However, feel free to email us att info@frialigan.se once an update is out and we'll be sure to send it to you!
