This afternoon I finally finished the layout of an updated playtest version of NOIR. The 8-paged PDF can be downloaded here.
The latest version not only features a nice pulp-era cover but also a lot of rules changes.
With the help of Joshua “Majyc” Macy and John “Pinakidion” Payne, I changed the system from a d% mechanic to an easier d20-based system. I also added rules for advancement and a few more sample backgrounds. When everything goes as planned, I will provide a character sheet soon.
