Rulesbooks!

Today I’m hustling bump on writing Middleware rulebooks. This is particularly tricky given that the game is going to be distributed primarily as just cards, and the rulebook is going to be a .pdf that you can save onto your phone.

There are a kajillion resolutions that work. There are dozens of complaints about pdf presentation on mobile phones. There are people who hate lore (because game designers can’t do lore?) and there are people who love lore (but not too much because there is limited space). There’s technically wording things like Magic: The Gathering rules, or there’s a more loose form where problems solve themselves when you don’t try over-defining them.

This is what I did today.

Oh also the power went out for eight hours so I was up at the library trying to do this.
