So, i have heard it bandied about that there may at some point be a 'table of sproing' similar to the 'table of ouch' for stress damage critical injuries.

Now, i realise that this will probably be in crucible, but what do you guys think we can do in the meantime, basing it on the table of ouch?

The work is titled 'Fragile Minds' - a bit was mentioned a few times over the last month and a half or so -

One week later, and I'm pleased with where we are at.

Behind the scenes we are still doing battle with the great printing beast, but we seem to have it pushed up to the brink of the cliff and now all we have to do is harry it over the edge. Crafty Games is definitely a 'pursuit predator' Wink. Practice Makes Perfect and Class Confidential:Soldier are both in the que for edits, and the new era of website stability has freed up Alex somewhat, meaning Fragile Minds is probably gonna make it onto the short stack before you see the first of those on sale. We're trying to get better organized to work with freelancers to turn more of our ideas into finished manuscripts, since we have had to concede we can't do as much as we want to without more able hands. The immediate fruits of that being the "Vow of Silence" setting for use with Spellbound is making some tangible headway even when I'm not writing on it (and boy, that's a whole new world for Crafty). It also means you might be seeing some new names on our books, which I find very exciting. We are even looking into delving into products the likes of which other companies have written off. More on that when I sum up again next week Cool.

It's sitting on the pile to be edited and laid out, along with a number of other products. We should be seeing it reasonably soon - other projects just had to take first priority Smiley

Oh... ok. Well if it's soon to be released then there's no point in my making one!

Just completed the first adventure with Fragile Minds active last night, which involved the team operating in 1943 in occupied Machuria, encountering ghouls, a Nazi doctor driven insane by experiments in time-space manipulation, and a Dark Young of Shub-Niggurath(!!). It was great to bring some tension to the table for the players (just knowing the Table of Sproing was active made them *very* nervous) and while the Dark Young knocked them around a bit, no one went crazy (though everybody was Shaken by the end). Good to see the system doesn't totally compromise the heroes' heroicness...thanks to them having the Spirited campaign quality really saved their bacon!
