Good Afternoon! Final big announcement about 2nd Edition before the November game.
We are still on track to launch 2nd Edition at the January event. We will have the rules out to you at least 2 weeks prior so you can plan.
Having said that, we are implementing a few 2nd Edition rules this event to smooth the transition and refund more of that XP in preparation.
Weaponry and Ranged Weapon Advanced - The skill for individual weapons is gone. In its place are Melee Proficiency, Firearms Proficiency, and Throwing Proficiency. We are making the changes to you sheet and refunding the XP for those pesky weapon skills.
Pioneer - Self Sufficient is being changed from weapon choice to a Gathering Skill choice. So this event you should choose a Gathering skill for your Pioneer.
Frontiersman - Explorer is gone, in it's place is Frontiersman. Identify Critter is no longer the buy-in and is replaced by...a Gathering Skill. So this event choose a Gathering skill to replace ID Critter.
Weapon Mastery - With the simplification of proficiency we are making this skill specific to weapon types. You can have Martial and Master Short, 1-Hand, 2-Hand, or Long weapons. With Marksmanship you can master Side Arms, Longarms, Shotguns, and Throwing.
Open List - Deleted. Anything from the Open list is being refunded
Of special note that won't take effect until January - Weapon Mastery will require 30xp spent in the applicable tree. Meaning to get Mastery 1-Handed you will have to have spent 30xp in the Martial tree.
