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.
We (that is Michael Garcia and me) are still very interested in your feedback, so please leave your comments below or post your thoughts in our playtest forum!
Macy, actually. Majyc is an anagram of J Macy, fwiw.
Oh, sorry. I didn't want to butcher your name. I will change it immediately!
