3.3 beta and release date

Hey Dredlings!
I am shifting the release date to may 2012 so I have time to get everything perfect.

Beta 3.3 is coming on nicely. I am aiming to have it ready for the weekend.

I have rebuilt the docx file from scratch, copying chunks of text from 2.8 and 3.2 and cleaning them up as I go. This ensures all stray references to older rules (such as wounded and stunned state) are expunged like the naughty little blighters they are.

The magic system has been stripped down to a bunch of hard coded spells to make it easy to understand, though the effect+mod is actually still under the hood.
Simply get a spell card, pay the gold and give it to a character. Very fast.

Wizards get to use power dice to throw magic missiles and magic blasts around now- which feels cool -especially when you charge up ready for a big deadly blast!



3.3 returns to the 2.5/2.8 damage system, with a few tweaks. You can find the pdf for that beta (skulldred_beta_latest) in the 3.2 forum for now if you want to have a look.

I am still looking for great mini picture contributors- any figures from Otherworld, Splintered Light, Grenadier(Mirliton), Reaper, Hasslefree, Heresy, Victoria, Imbrian Arts, Guild of Harmony, Asgard (viking forge) and hey, if you have something nice from any independent mini company I can chase up permissions.
Some great pictures of game boards and terrain features would be cool too!
