The Regiment: Alpha 2.0 playtest

Sunday, August 26, 2012

The alpha 2.0 playtest kit for The Regiment is here.

Changes from alpha 1.0:
- Single-sided, 8.5x11 playbooks. A bit simpler now and ultra-compact!
- Revised and standardized advancement across all playbooks.
- Added new modern era special forces Operator playbook.
- Completely revised moves, both in the playbooks and in the basic set.
- Revised weapon ranges and damage.
- New battle plan mechanic, similar to workspace from AW.
- New unit maneuvers mechanic, to gracefully handle off-screen and NPC actions.

Coming soon, but not done yet:
- The new Unit creation sheet. You can use the old one for now, and use "profile" for "operational effectiveness" in 2.0.

Go ahead and grab it, give it a try, and let us know what you think over on The Regiment forum.

Thanks to all the alpha 1.0 playtesters and fans for your help and support.

Thanks, Michael! Glad you enjoyed the game. And thanks so much for your feedback.

Your Ds&Ds game the day before was lots of fun.

I've never commented on anything online before but thank you, this is exactly what I was looking for to cement some ideas I've been having for a campaign brewing in my head.
