New Full Rulebooks Released

3D Print, Age of Fantasy, Firefight, Full Rulebooks, Game Update, Grimdark Future, Merch, Skirmish

Hi everyone,

Over the past couple of weeks we’ve been releasing a ton of new stuff with the AI Rules, Campaign Rules, Mission Cards and Tournament Guides, but we’re not stopping there.

Today we’ve got a major update for the Full Rulebooks, as well as some updates to the core rules for all of our games. Let’s dig in!


New Full Rulebooks

Since the initial release of the Full Rulebooks about a year ago we’ve gotten a ton of great feedback from our players, and so over the past couple of months we’ve been working on updating the Full Rulebooks to make them even more awesome.

These new versions of the Full Rulebooks are jam-packed with new and updated content to enhance your games, ranging from smaller things like extra missions and actions, to big total conversions like rules for apocalyptic games or playing with small-scale minis.

Here a list of all the new and updated stuff you will find:

  • New Terrain Placement rules, with 6 placement styles
  • New Side-Missions rules, with 3 play styles and 18 side-missions
  • New Deployment Styles rules, with 6 deployment types
  • New Tactical Points rules, with 15 strategic doctrines
  • Updated Extra Missions rules, with 6 mission types
  • Updates Extra Actions rules, with 2 new actions
  • Updated Solid Buildings rules, now with collateral damage rules
  • Updated Random Events rules, with 18 new events
  • Updated Battlefield Conditions rules, with 6 new conditions
  • Updated Terrain & Objective Effects rules, re-written for clarity
  • Updated Fog of War rules, now with shifting focus and combat fatigue rules
  • Updated Brutal Damage rules, now with friendly fire, mishaps and crits rules
  • Updated Suppression and Fatigue rules, re-balanced for better gameplay
  • Updated Multiplayer Games rules, with 2 new play styles
  • Updated Apocalyptic Games rules, re-written for clarity and playability
  • Updates Small-Scales & Multi-Basing rules, re-written to be easier to play

Just as with the recent Point Calculators update, we’ve also done a major re-working of the layout, as well as adding new diagrams illustrations that show off the miniatures from a top-down perspective, and make things even easier to understand.

So, if you have been on the fence about getting the full rulebooks, or if you already own an older copy of the rulebooks, then we highly recommend that you check out the newest versions by supporting us: patreon.com/onepagerules

Note that we’ve also updated the Basic Rulebooks to reflect these changes, so if you had printed out a copy of those, then you should print out the new versions instead.


Core Rules Updates

As part of the Full Rulebook updates we’ve also gone ahead and updated a couple of the core game rules to enhance playability.

We’re changing how heroes work a little so that now you can use the unit’s quality value if the hero that’s in it has a worse quality. Also we’re making it so that now the hero always uses the defense value of the unit they join (unless they are the last model alive), streamlining the defense rolls process.

Then we found that Indirect weapons felt a little useless, so now you can fire without the -1 to hit penalty as long as you remain stationary. Finally we noticed that because of the short 12″ range on spell blocking, people ended up not really being able to use this mechanic very often, so we increased the range to 18″ to make it a better option.

On the AoF: Regiments front we’ve been struggling with how charges work for a long time, because it was too easy to charge into a unit’s flank even when standing right in front of them. Because of this units may now only pivot before charging, and not during the charge, ensuring that this won’t happen anymore.

Here the full changelog:

General Rules

  • Heroes may use their own morale when joining units, but aren’t forced to anymore
  • Heroes always roll for defense using their unit’s defense value, unless they are the last model alive
  • Indirect shots now only suffer a -1 to hit penalty when moving
  • Spell blocking now has a range of 18″ instead of just 12″

AoF: Regiments

  • Units may only pivot before moving and must move in a straight line when using Rush/Charge.
  • Ambush units must be placed over 12″ away (to avoid rear charges)

Tournament Guides + New T-Shirts

Age of Fantasy, Firefight, Grimdark Future, Merch, Skirmish, Tournament Guide

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got some new game updates, a limit time t-shirt design, as well as a small reminder of all the cool ways you can engage with the community. :)


Tournament Guides

Have you ever wanted to create an OPR tournament over the weekend but didn’t really know where to start? Or are looking for a couple of ways to add more structure to army building and the game rules?

Well then we have you covered with our new Tournament Guides!

For each game you now have a guide on how to create and run small tournaments, as well as some extra rules on how to restrict abusing the army creation rules and other loopholes that we have in the game.

Now let me say that our games were never created with competitive play in mind, so to run a tournament you’ll definitely need a judge that can settle disputes quickly, as there are many things in the game that are not clearly defined.

In any case these guides should come in hand, and we hope you give them a try. :)

New T-Shirt Designs

Recently we’ve had some players ask us if we’re going to be adding some new t-shirt designs to our stores, and I’m happy to say that we did!

First off, we have a new awesome limited edition design:

opr-skull

This new design will only be available until the 30th of March, so make sure to get it whilst it’s still available. :D

We also have a couple of other new designs (which you can see below), and as new art is revealed we’re going to keep adding cool new designs to the store.

Check them out here: https://teespring.com/stores/one-page-rules

Community Reminders

We’ve got a ton new players on board since the last time we did this, so here are some reminders of all the ways you can connect with the community…

First up, the OPR Newsletter: http://eepurl.com/gBIFer

Make sure to sign up so that you can get monthly updates on all the new things that happen around the project. This is especially useful for those that are unable to keep up with the tons of updates we release every week, and would just like a recap of the highlights for each month.

Then there’s our Discord Server: https://discord.gg/djBydgk

Discord is a great way to connect with the community and if you haven’t checked it out yet you definitely should. Basically it’s a place where you can chat with 300+ other players about tactics, list buildings, hobby progress, 3D printing, and more. It’s also a great way to organise games on Roll20 and TTS, with lots of active players.

We have a new OPR Forum: http://forum.onepagerules.com/

That’s right, out with the old, in with the new! The new forum is hosted on Discourse, and it has a clean new look, plus it automates our Patreon accesses. If you want to share ideas and have longer discussions, then this is the place to go.

Finally you should follow us on all these channels:

Fantasy-Humans


There you go, a short and sweet update today. But next week… oh next week we have something really cool in store for you. :D

Happy Wargaming!

Dynamic Mission Cards

Oh yeah baby, we’re finally releasing official mission cards!

People have been asking for these for a long time now, especially after seeing them being used to great effect in Wyloch’s battle reports. So naturally after talking to him we picked them up, slapped a fresh coat of paint on, and released them to our players.

The dynamic mission cards can be found on the various game pages and are available for all games, so make sure to give them a try next time you play!
