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.

Building a Punk Venue for WitS Pt. 1

Chris from Slow Death Games/Wild in the Streets isn't going to be able to make it to AdeptiCon this year so the Breaker Press Games booth is going to be running Wild in the Streets demos in addition to our yearly introduction to Broken Contract. This means that I'm going to need suitable scenery to use for demo purposes, as well as for photos used in Tooth Chipper Fanzine. With that in mind, I looked around the internet in search of buildings that fit my vision of the hip neighborhoods I've frequented around the country as my old bands toured. Everywhere I looked, the modern buildings I was most drawn to were all from the TT Combat City Scenics line.

I looked at their entire range, and even though their old theatre, comic book store, and music shop all seemed like automatic selections, I needed to get the most bang and flexibility for my buck, so I ordered their Take Away set online, which is meant to be a stripmall with 3 restaurants in it. Eagerly, I waited for it to ar…

Three New Releases for April 2018

At AdeptiCon we debuted three new releases and they are available on the Breaker Press webstore now!
Broken Contract The Day-to-Day Starter Box This Starter Box is a revised and reimagined version of last year's starter box. The box we brought out to the world through Kickstarter last year contained a lot of stuff, but in retrospect may have been a touch overwhelming to new players. The focus then was on creating a sandbox for players who wanted to create their own characters and crews, but it was too much stuff to make a smooth introduction.
The Day-to-Day Starter Box seeks to resolve that by adding our Introductory Episode Book, The Day-to-Day and keeping the cards and models strictly to those on the sample crew rosters included in the book. The three scenarios are meant to guide the players through progressively more involved Acts, composing a mini-campaign called an Episode. 

The Day-to-Day Starter Box is the perfect introduction to the miniature game, Broken Contract. Contained…

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!
