Iron Falcon Release Announcements

This subforum is for discussion of the Iron Falcon Rules for Classic Fantasy Role-Playing. Maybe someday they'll have their own forum, but for now I'm keeping the discussion here.

Announcing!

Iron Falcon Rules Release 38 -- March 18, 2015
The random encounters have been moved to the end of the Monsters section, which honestly seems a better fit to me. This made formatting the Adventuring section easier; that section now contains a page of general (and very traditional) rules for dungeoneering as well as the promised overland movement info. I've varied from the original base with respect to movement mainly to make the math much easier. Airborne and waterborne movement will be added in a later release.

Overland Movement -- Partially Done
Waterborne Movement
Airborne Movement

I'll be updating this list as I go along.

That works better for me, too. Good change.

Announcing!

Iron Falcon Rules Release 39 -- March 19, 2015
Overland, waterborne, and airborne movement subsections are completed, as are the Hirelings and Men-At-Arms rules. This makes all but two of the "Definitely Will Be Done" to-do's complete... hopefully in R40, due out tomorrow.

It's been a while now since I read it, but is the dungeon mapping guidelines section something you could crib from your RPG Primer from last fall? I seem to recall that sort of thing being in there, but not to what extent.

I have to say, I've followed the progress on IF more as a way of seeing how you develop such a thing than with any intention of using it, but as the revisions pile up I've found I really like what you've done. The couple of early versions I looked at didn't really resonate with me, especially given I already have print copies of both S&W (WB, Core and Complete) and Delving Deeper. But the recent updates have come a long way and changed my opinion - I expect I'll end up grabbing a copy.

Nice work indeed!

Edited because punctuation matters!

Thanks for the kind words! I expect, with the R40 release tomorrow, to be able to call the rules fundamentally done, and I'm thinking I'll take a breather. There will still be items on the "May Be Done" list but they are things I've already decided I can live without.

The dungeon mapping part in the RPG Primer could serve as a donor of material, I suppose. I don't really want to cannibalize one book too much to serve another, though I suppose in this case it might be the way to go.

Announcing!

Iron Falcon Rules Release 41 -- March 23, 2015
This release has formatting updates; the character class tables did not have the half-point thick lines or 2/100" padding that pretty much all the other tables have, and thus did not print well at all. There are also numerous small textual changes to the encounter rules inspired by a discussion with Simon J. Bull, whose advice is much appreciated.

Announcing!

Iron Falcon Rules Release 42 -- March 24, 2015
This release includes a number of small changes, and one big one: the rules for Characters with Multiple Classes have been rewritten to be more classic, without the excessive hit point issues previously noticed.
