Cepheida Captain's Log
« on: January 06, 2013, 09:19:16 PM »
This is my work log where I will record what I'm doing and what I need to do towards Cepheida as an idea and a project.
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...

Finally made faction threads for all seven planned factions.

Some testing happened today. Turns out combat can kinda take forever at present.  :P

How long is it usually supposed to take? I am assuming not 70 odd pages of my book :P
like a bruise that would never go away, but she would cherish it for ever.

Well, I think the main factor was that we ignored all the psychology rules, as otherwise more running away would have happened rather sooner.

Ah, possibly the case. Is the amount of terror cumulative or just determined by one roll?

Seems like a strange way to measure time.
How did the tests go? Aside from the length of combat.

Generally went well.

I'm currently busily simplifying a lot of the rules around temperature, gravity, etc, because those were kind of stupidly complex, you had to take account of comfortable and survival temp ranges for each different species. No longer!

The League have also undergone a big redesign, and the forms/ideas for the major League races at last finalised.  :)
