Re: XP for new PCs

Ah yes, I forgot that the book addresses it, but it's easy enough to do your own thing and ignore what is written in the rules, nothing will break if you change it.

Re: Can one combine normal copyright of a game text and still refer to the FTL?

You don't need to use the SRD verbatim, but if you want to claim a game as being Year Zero Engine, you need to comply with the FTL, which includes including a link to it.

Re: XP for new PCs

There is no golden bullet answer here, other than have a chat with the table and see what works best. The three options you mentioned are typically what people do in TTRPGs. Another is to have a new PC start with zero XP but earn double until they're at the same number as the other PCs, so that they...

Re: Feedback Thread - The Year Zero Engine Standard Reference Document

I would like to see a sample personal armor table, like the fantasy standards (leather, plate, chain, shields). If it helps, Forbidden Lands uses the following armor stats (you can wear one armor plus one helmet): Leather: AR 2 (Light) Studded Leather: AR 3 Chainmail: AR 6 / 3 vs arrows and stabbin...

Re: Issues vs Challenges

The difference is explained in the Running the Game chapter, specifically on page 96. Think of issues like plot hooks and challenges like activated plots and you won't be far off the mark.

Re: Release date?

The final PDF has been released. Check your DTRPG library and download the latest file there. You can ignore the DTRPG listing (which says "beta"), as it definitely has the final PDF. In terms of public release, it should be soon. On Kickstarter, they mention a release date of November in ...

Re: Ranged Combat in Short Range

Indeed, I put engaged in quotes because it's describing a situation like that. This is a narrative system and doesn't attempt to simulate combat like many more traditional games do. However, I would say that if someone is "engaged" with a PC and the player wants to step away, I'd say they'...

Re: Print on Demand Community Content

Print on Demand is not possible - Free League would have to set it up with DTRPG. But it is possible - Chaosium's equivalent to the Workshop allows POD.

As both a Workshop creator and an avid buyer of FLW titles, I would love to see this happen.

Re: Ranged Combat in Short Range

Yeah, close proximity is just a way to say engaged / arms-length / etc. If a PC is not yet "engaged" with someone and wants to shoot them in close range, that's fine - it's a ranged attack handled in Phase 2. But if they miss or don't kill their target, that target can then "engage&qu...

Re: Delaying & Readying actions

Yeah, that sounds good. That's effectively in keeping with the spirit of the mechanic and similar to how we handle it in YZE games with initiative.
