Mutant: Year Zero PDF v2 needs an update please

Wed 30 Nov 2016, 20:54

Before I start critiquing, let me state that I really really like Mutant: Year Zero. A lot. And the game system. And the upcoming RPGs. Especially the rumored fantasy one. Tales from the Loop looks fantastic.

One the other hand, I am prepping for a Mutant: Year Zero campaign. I became a bit frustrated due to the changes mentioned in Genlab Alpha that are not in version 2 of the PDF for MY0 (with some being listed as changes but not making it into the text of the PDF). I finally bought the PDF of Genlab to get the updated rules.

I would really like to see a version 3 of the Mutant: Year Zero PDF with the updated rules for NPCs and mutations (starting MPs for NPCs), initiative, grappling, and recovery. And maybe updates for the skill Inspire for the Chronicler (not sure if that is official)? I like all of these changes but it was difficult to even know about the changes and actually get the updates. And maybe an errata sheet? I have the physical book and created my own errata sheet.

Love the game. And the system. Just want the best rules to use while running it. Thanks!

Sure, the (pdf) rulebook could use an update.

One thing that the devs could do is what they have done (after som pressure from some users :roll:) in the Swedish parts of this forum, a changelog thread where they write the updates. It is very useful. I don't know why they haven't done that for the English version yet, but perhaps it will come.

Fair points here. We'll get on that. :)

For now, we have pinned your other thread that compiles the rules changes introduced in Genlab Alpha.

I don't want to nitpick - I am also loving my time with Mutant, and it's quickly rising to be one of my favorite RPGs of all time - but I have to second that I'd love an update. There's everything mentioned in the Genlab v. MYZ thread (including the clarification about arrows that I noticed and added to it) and some of the translation questions and rulings that I found on the forum here.

I want to make sure you know that I really appreciate the timely and effective responses from Devs here on the English forums, especially because you give very clear rulings. It's just that my GM doesn't read these forums, and I got in a small spat with her about whether or not I could use my success from a close combat defense to counterattack a Zone Dog that failed its roll to Fight me that was only solved when I remembered the version of the rule I was using came from a random thread here on the forum I remembered seeing that one the Devs answered. It would certainly save me some arguing if I could just hand her an updated PDF.  :D

I have quickly realized that, when I say "Devs", it's always you responding Tomas, and here you are again. Thanks for everything you do on these forums! We really appreciate it.

When you do an update to the PDF please release an errata page for those of us with a hard copy or even those with a PDF to be able to find the changes instead of meticulously sifting through the book for a small update like the change in weapon specialist to a +1 from +2.  

Thank you.

p.s. great product and system.  I love the feel of the paper you used for the cover.
