Like so many projects I undertake, I imagined crafting a playable set of Quick Start Rules and short two or three page intro adventure would take about a month. This project has ballooned to take well over a year (off and on) and now includes Muddy Mayhem, a 42 page adventure! So now instead of a short supplement, it has become book 10 in the Mutant Epoch RPG line, and I am stoked about the end result.
For those of you who already have the TME hub rules, don't worry, the adventure and downloadable 8 Pre-Gen characters are all fully compatible with the quick start rules, and visa versa. Also, you can freely download and share several variants of the QSR, including a printer friendly rules only version that is a mere 2.5mb in size and perfect to send to new players prior-to game night, or hand out at a convention.
What follows is the blurb you might come across if you follow The Mutant Epoch on G+, Twitter, facebook or other venues, as well as our site where we've set up a public page with all the links, downloads and goodies associated with this release: http://www.outlandarts.com/qsr.htm
Now that it is done, my creative time will now be divided between the completion of Season One of the Mutant Epoch Novel series, and the much anticipated The Mutant Epoch Expansion Rules.
Seasons Greetings to you all and look forward to more frequent posting here in coming weeks as I aim to turn this blog into a creator's journal instead of merely an announcement stage.
