Major Update to Ashcan Edition!


It's been a long week, y'all. But I've gotten a lot of work done on this project of mine, and I'm super excited to share it with you. I'm moving ever-closer to the polished project that I want to achieve.

So without any further ado, let's get into the changes!

  • General formatting and clarity
  • Updated safety tools section and content warnings to reflect setting additions
  • Added "Extra Credits" to credit the creators of Charge Extras
  • Playbooks and Talent Trees
    • Completed all four playbooks (Engineer, Farmer, Fisher, Miner)
      • Complete with talent trees, ties to your community and other PCs, and questions to develop points of interest based on your playbook
    • Completed two general talent trees that can be taken by any player; Universal, and Merchantry
    • Completed special talent tree that requires training to access; Magiturgy
  • Added "What Doesn't Kill You" to Scars (just a mechanic I'd left out on accident)
  • Removed Goods and Trade, replaced with the Scrap system
  • Added a fancy table for "Completing a Goal" with clarified rewards
  • Added advice for goals in a one-shot
  • Add a lot of new setting information, bringing it up to SEVENTEEN (17!) pages
    • includes
      • world forces, points of interest, notable NPCs
      • advice on creating alternate settings
      • two sci-fi alternate settings, complete with world forces
  • Added "Rule Negative Zero" by Richard Kelly
  • Added "One Last Thing" by René-Pier Deshaies-Gélinas
  • Added Ashcan Supporters section for those that have purchased the game in the current edition
  • Updated character sheet
  • Created community sheet

WHEW~! I told you it was a lot :3 To anyone who took the time to look at this, thank you so much. I'm falling more in love with this game every day, even as my eyes dry out and I lose all sense of time (it's 5:11 am, and I haven't slept yet). I really enjoy working on this, and I appreciate all of your support.

There are still plenty of community copies available as of the writing of this devlog, so please feel free to snag one and check it out!
