Though a game can be worked on for a long time before it's released, once it gets into the hands of players, the chances are high that they'll find things that seemed to work but don't as really intended, or there's blank spaces where there really should be clarification, or situations that aren't quite covered. Then, it's time to update and get yourself a new edition. And that's just what the folks at Burning Wheel have done with Torchbearer. They've heard you and changed things around for the good of the game and now they're looking to fund the 2nd edition up on Kickstarter.
From the campaign:
We have been hard at work on a new edition of Torchbearer for over three years now. Based on the feedback we received from you and from our own campaigns and demos since we launched in 2013, we wanted to make a couple of tweaks to the game. Well, those "couple of tweaks" rapidly spiraled into a massive revision. Check it out:
- New format and layout! The game is now a two-book set: The Dungeoneer’s Handbook and The Scholar’s Guide
- Clarified, revised, refined and expanded rules from seven years of playtesting and feedback
The campaign's making its way to 4x funded with 24 days left to go.
