New Nightlancer testing

While Manolis and Christos have been hard at work on the final art I've been running playtests with the two new Nightlancers to make sure they are tuned to the game balance (thanks once more to my Nightlancer-level super backers!). The Nano-Heretic brings many subtle and effective tricks to bear as long as their Resolve holds out to keep their Nanobots under control, while the Body Hacker is expert at recovering from new implants and their custom cyberware allows them to push their body to the absolute limit before they collapse.

Nightlancer RPG

When I can make time I'm developing my Nightlancer RPG. I will be running playtests organised through the Nightlancer Discord channel.

The Nightlancer RPG is designed from the ground up to be exciting and fun. It has fast paced cyberpunk gameplay taking inspiration from Cyberpunk 2020, Numenera, Starfinder, Savage Worlds and many more with a few special innovations of my own. The full game will have a huge diversity of character builds for all kinds of specialities from dirty street fighting to computer cracking and rabble rousing.

If you want to experience the Nightlancer world from the street view, or if you're an experienced GM and want to be part of developing a new cyberpunk RPG focused on a fast-paced and fun experience, let me know on the Discord!

Delivery target

The world situation is of course an ongoing concern and I am staying in touch with printing & fulfilment to stay ahead of any developments.

So far I see no reason to think I will not make my delivery target of December 2020, but this is an uncertain situation and I will I keep you informed of any changes that I am forced to make to the schedule.

Thanks again for all your support!
