As I have been looking for people to play online, I’ve got 3 or 4 people as possibilities. Looking with fresh eyes, it is clear that my rulebook/worldbook for “The World Between for Fictive Hack” is daunting for one-off or short gaming.
Fortunately, Matt Jackson inspired me to create a 20 page fully compatible summary of the rules. His “rule” is that he won’t look at a game that needs over 20 pages to explain the rules. I took that as a design challenge, and made a 20 page summary version. Now I can use “Fictive Hack: Matt’s Rule Edition” as a gateway to a much bigger world.
Thanks, Matt! I still hold out hope you’ll someday review the version named for your rule. In the meantime, your rule has helped me out, so that’s pretty cool.
