Broken Contract Beta Rules

Art by Geng Gendall

This is the Beta set of the Broken Contract rules. As a Beta rule set it is expected that there will be some inconsistencies, typos, mistakes, and the like. It has been through an editor so the typos should be minimal but there may be areas that require greater clarity, and guaranteed there will be an inconsistency here or there. Please read it, play it with proxies, and provide as much feedback as you can. Thanks and enjoy!

    1. Go to it Mr Ferrick! I do not fear your red pen. Well, maybe I do, but I will be strong through the process. :)

  2. This is the first exposure I've had. Reading through the instruction book, I'm wondering: What level of general gameplay expertise of audience are you designing for? Knowing that will affect my critique.

  3. Lex, that's an interesting question. Ultimately I want someone who has never played a wargame before to be able to read through the rules and understand how to play the game. I want them clear and concise. If you find something that is unclear or convoluted please let me know. Any feedback in that regard is appreciated!

    1. I'm still in my first scan through. It's clear to me, but I'm wondering about the order of rule presentation. My level expertise might contribute to the clarity. I'll have some more clarity after finishing this read through and possibly one or two more.

I Wanna Be Your Dog: Canines in DCC

Last year I started a Dungeon Crawl Classics group with my friends. For those that don't know, Dungeon Crawl Classics is meant to be D&D like it is 1975, and touts the catch phrase, "Deadliest Game Alive". During Character Creation one of the characters in our 0-level funnel came up as a herder with a herding dog. The dog, Fetch, has outlived their herder master, and became a beloved Character in a very lethal game. Not surprisingly, the players pushed for Fetch to have the ability to advance. Here is the first draft of the rules if you are interested in my take on Canine Player Characters in DCC.

You’re running a 0-Level Funnel for a group of players who are all dog people. One of the Characters comes up as a Herder with a Herding Dog, and before you know it, the dog is the most cherished member of the party. Treasure be damned, as long as the dog survives!

Kickstarters You Should Know About!

I have a lot of friends doing a lot of cool stuff. One of those friends has a project that is currently on Kickstarter. It is called Ruin & Conquest and it is a system-agnostic campaign setting for whatever fantasy RPG you love. Brinton Williams has thrown his heart and soul into this tome and has gathered a whole host of top notch analog artists to bring his vision to gritty black ink on white paper. Go over to Kickstarter and check it out. The funding push will end on Friday October 26th, so don't sleep on it. Also, it looks like his Facebook group could use a boost too, so if you're on Facebook go Like Ruin & Conquest there.


I've never met Jason at Thunderchild Miniatures, but we both ran our first Kickstarters simultaneously a few years back and I have been following his work ever since. He is dedicated to his craft, that is for sure. His next Kickstarter launches this weekend, on Saturday October 20th. This time around he is releasing a miniature board game c…

I'm an Outsider: Outlier Characters in DCC

I’m an Outsider, Outside of Everything Outlier Player Characters in DCC by Nick Baran
Art by Nerdgore The concept of a Player Character with outdoor skills has firm footing in fantasy literature, but not every solitary woodsperson is a benevolent ranger. There is also the survivalist hunter, and the thieving brigand roaming the hills and forests. The Outlier emphasizes the varied motivations and skills of those that live off the land, whether they seek to protect it, or take what they need from it, outside of the governance of “civil” society.

(Editor’s note: The traditional Ranger of AD&D does not fit with the “You’re no hero” philosophy espoused by DCC, but many folks love the wilderness skills associated with the class. In the 80’s, I was in love with the Bandit character class that was featured in Dragon Magazine #63 and Best of Dragon Vol. 4. It was a cool mash up of Thief and Ranger themed skills that I really connected with and had a lot of fun playing. With no official Range…
