Hello, VOID Fans!
In this post you will find five documents (IN RED) needed to begin playtesting VOID with your own friends and fellow gamers. We would like to thank Stephen B. Sonne for continuing to help us edit and prepare these materials. We could not have gotten this far without his insight and help! All in all, we hope that everything is clearly written and understandable, but if not so, then please feel free to ask questions!
The Character Sheet is the essential element for any player in the game of VOID. You can use the Character Creation Guide and the other documents in this post to build your character. On your Character Sheet, you will find on the last page areas for Specializations and Techniques. Do not worry about these while play testing. We will have these expanded elements in the final Core Rulebook after editing is completed.
The Action Counter Sheet is to help characters function smoothly in an interactive combat scenario. We recommend using this and some form of token to help during combat. You can find details of how to best utilize this sheet in our Actions Explained document.
This is a section of the Core Rulebook to help you play the game of VOID. This includes our character creation information, how to form your background/motivations, detailed information on the 7 Races, how to engage in Combat, how Traits are defined, and the basics of Sorcery. Advanced combat options have currently been removed as they are still being edited. Regardless, you will still find plenty to keep you entertained for hours.
In this section (also pulled from the Core Rulebook) you will find the currency system, information on equipping characters, weapons and armor, and the basic adventuring gear. You will also find 10 of the 22 monsters and a large variety of animals in the game!
Lastly, we are including our feedback form. If you choose to playtest, we would really appreciate having each person of the group fill out the form so that we can continue to improve VOID. Tell us what you like and what you don’t like. If we receive these soon enough, we may be able to make continued adjustments before the Core Rulebook is completed. It is likely we will give everyone a couple months and release the full book this summer to have time to get some feedback.
