Hetairos, a 2nd Edition?
« on: May 07, 2023, 10:34:22 PM »
I've been mulling over producing a second edition of the game. The first edition rules are reasonably fun, but I don't think I've ever managed to get people to play them in games I wasn't running myself, and they're not very pretty and have some obvious holes especially around monster movement rules and how to adjudicate where monsters should "choose" to go, which needs some more detail.

So this is my list of hoped for changes:
  • Rearranging rules sections to flow better with how the game is actually played, including a better description of how turns and action points work
  • Improved monster movement rules
  • Scenario balance changes: I want more scenarios to scale better to the number of players
  • More examples in the rulebook, ideally with diagrams
  • Proper formatting and layout, not just the old word doc style
  • A pretty new cover for the whole thing

Not sure how far I'll get with this but that's the theory. Hopefully more updates to come, questions & suggestions for things you'd like to see in a Greek underworld dungeon crawling boardgame/RPG hybrid welcome!
