Though I am not an avid player of the Basic Roleplaying system, I do follow their products closely as they are often chuck full’o’goodness….and sometimes unimagined evil, but anyway..Here is the newest news on the new version of the backbone game system for Chaosium:
According to Chaosium’s Dustin Wright, the bulk of the Basic Roleplaying manuscript is now in house, and the project is on track for an early November release. The manuscript is essentially laid out, and artwork should be completed by September. Maybe we can hope for a preview in October?
This revised edition represents the core Chaosium game system, based on nearly 30 years of use and refinement. It is a complete collection of all the rules you would need to play in any sort of setting, from fantasy to sci-fi.
As you may know, I’m setting up a Call of Cthulhu game for my wife in the near term. Though we are not likely to be using the BRP version of the game, the spirit of Chaosium’s vision of the Mythos will be preserved….probably with a FUDGE/FATE or better yet a fully implemented HAGIS recipe! I will be posting the results in any case. Wish us luck.
