Captain’s Manual Excerpt Open Beta Test and Scenario Solicitation
Got two great things to expand your Leviathans enjoyment in the coming weeks.
First up, a new open beta test.
Catalyst Game Labs is developing the Captain’s Box; a stand-alone expansion to the Leviathans Core Box that will include a slew of enhanced scenario rules, from weather and wind to elevation, alternate movement and combat options, and more. Those rules have been extensively play tested to date.
However, the two rules in this PDF have come up for potential inclusion in the Captain’s Box. Instead of simply play testing them internally, however, we want to run these externally as well. So here ya go…put together some games, run with it, and let us know. Visit the forums at www.monstersinthesky.com. A “Captain’s Manual Excerpt Playtest” thread has been created and will be active for a few weeks. Post your feedback, comments and especially your suggestions for tweaks to the rules that you feel will improve them.
You can also find that PDF on the downloads page as well.
Additionally, we’re putting out a call for your scenarios! We’re working on several new PDFs to release in the coming months, and one of them will be a collection of scenarios and we’d love to get the community involved!
If you’re interested, click here and you’ll find an rtf containing the third scenario from the Commander’s Manual. Any scenarios you wish to submit MUST follow this template; simply take the rtf file and overwrite the pre-existing text with your new scenario. If you wish to include anything not in this scenario (for example perhaps the rules from the Captain’s Manual Excerpt Open Beta Test), that’s just fine and we love to see that…simply add it in, following the example of the other rules from the scenario template.
All scenarios must be received by April 15th; send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once they are received, Catalyst Game Labs will review the scenarios and any we wish to use we’ll contact the author to pay him a nominal fee, at which point the scenarios are 100% Catalyst-owned.
If anyone has any questions, feel free to post them here.
Good luck…and see ya next duty shift!
