BASHIN EM

In my dreams last night, I became omniscient. I don't know if it's really possible to describe how it feels to be omniscient, so my personal recommendation is to do so yourself, and then come back over here.

Bash 'Em Lads is actually nearly done, I just need to make a cover image and then get somebody to play with me. I don't think any of my friends are interested in that sort of thing, so I was thinking about printing out some paper minis and playing with the wife. Although we do have plenty of orcs and goblins and stuff, so maybe we'd just use those.

The thing I really like about the ruleset is how easy it is, and how simple. You have one or two heroes, three or four units, then you have the heroes command your units to do stuff, and the units kind of follow along. It's beautiful and simple. It still requires you have a couple small blocks of infantry, but then again, what doesn't?

Anyways I'll put the rules up here. They also serve as a not-hideous version of the original ruleset if you don't like what I've done- I've tried to make them as separate as possible, and have clearly framed any of my additions as "optional rules." I think it turned out ok.

Oh, also: Here it is. One-page version's here.

This one is just literally the one-page version of the original rules, I'll put what I've done in separate one-page additions, because that's the kind of person I am. I know that anything I come up with isn't going to be as good as what ol' Jim came up with, so why mix them together?

Also I realized I never actually wrote anything for Oni Puncher, and I never finished that card game based tabletop thing. I might get on that, eventually.
