the good news: the Core Rulebook preview has been updated with the
errata that came out of our final round of playtesting. A fair number of
pages have been touched, so we’ll go over the important ones for ease
p. 89: Clarified who gets to narrate when a PC fairy Stresses Out.
p. 96: Clarified the conditions for recovering Stress while on a Break.
p. 150: The examples on this page had inadvertently been swapped.
(i.e., the example involving Robin and Mae is meant to follow the
paragraph about setting NPC dice pools, and the example involving the
Arcanodynamic Steam Pachyderm is meant to follow the paragraph about
NPCs rolling 6s, not vice versa.)
p. 151: Clarified when and how NPCs return to play after being Stressed Out.
p. 173: Added a brief discussion of playing without Shenanigans.
p. 182: Added a subsection discussing how player-versus-player contests interact with advancing Shenanigans.
p. 224: Added an optional rule for randomised multi-use
Advantages. (This one was less an errata issue and more a feature
request, but we had room to slip it in.)
p. 233: Explicitly defined the term “turn cycle”. (It was pointed
out that we were using this term without actually defining it anywhere -
p. 243: Adjusted how tension counters in competitive games work.
p. 245: Addressed how to calculate victory thresholds for competitive games with fewer than three players.
In addition, you’ll find new illustrations on pages 128, 172,
203, 263 and 311. If you’ve added the game to your DriveThru library,
you should have already received your updated copy; otherwise, you can
grab one from the links in Update 77.
Now for the not-so-good news: we don’t have any photos of the Big Pie Caper
proofs today. We’d ordered three proof copies, sent via three different
couriers to destinations in three different cities, and through a
series of shipping errors that we’re sure will be hilarious in
retrospect, none of them actually showed up. Our misfortune is your
gain, though, because that means you get more art teasers instead!
Today’s preview shows what happens when someone gets a little too into her role.
Heya, folks. It’s been a productive week for Costume Fairy Adventures. The PDFs for The Big Pie Caper
have been sorted out and the printed proofs ordered - we expect to
receive those within the week, after which we’ll be able to do final
review and correct any print layout issues before ordering the whole
batch. If all goes well, you can expect to see photos of the proof
copies in next week’s update. Meanwhile, we’re hard at work
incorporating the final revisions into the Core Rulebook, and there are
fewer than half-a-dozen illustrations yet to be received. Today’s teaser
is drawn from our most recent round of submissions; anyone who’s ever
run a game might find this scene awfully familiar!
Heya, folks. Just a quick Costume Fairy Adventures update this time: the PDFs for The Big Pie Caper
have been updated with the final pre-print revisions and uploaded to
all the usual places. You can get revised versions from your DriveThru
library, or via the links in Update 77. It’s still labeled “Playtest” on the title page because it won’t be final
final until we’ve received the printed proofs and had a chance to do
one last review, but unless anything comes up, this version should be
identical to what goes to print; if you’re a digital-only backer and
you’ve been holding off on making your own print-and-play copy, you
should be good to go now.
