Eero Tuovinen has finally finished writing Muster - A Primer for War. Advice for playing D&D the wargaming way! I excitedly reported on the project in an earlier thread.
(It’s technically pay-what-you-want so you can tip him, but he’s made it clear at DriveThruRPG and elsewhere that it’s free and free to share.)
It’s taken longer than anticipated, but it’s also grown from it’s early estimated length of 50 pages to 250+ pages! Fortunately, (1) there’s a brief manifesto at the beginning and (2) it’s been split into a basic and advanced section .
I think it’s a stellar piece of work, providing both practical advice for storygamers new to this style of play and theoretical observations and surprises for RPG aficionados in general.
Among other things, Eero offers a mature take on Chauvinism and D&D and penetrating observations about ‘The Nihilistic Void’ encroaching on long-term campaigns conducted in the wargaming way — but judge for yourself!
