It's essentially a way of folding a piece of paper into a handy sized booklet. There is a growing movement in the print and play/indy RPG community focussed on releasing game materials in this format. Why have I adopted it?
First of all, 8 pages is very limiting. If there's anything that gets me firing on all cylinders it's a limitation. Thus I got these rules knocked out in four evenings... Something I would never have managed with an unlimited format.
Secondly, it's a great size for my gaming and it's very easy to print! No binding or printing lots of pages.. Just one page and one cut.... Book. I love it.
I'm about to take the rules for a spin. They are based on mechanics from two different skirmish systems, with a completely new mechanic of my own thrown into the mix. If it works out I will draw a cover and release this thing.
More news as it happens!
