As some of you know I am using a wiki to write the rules, and share them for playtesting/feedback.
About 2 months ago, a standard software update caused the collection extension to fail. Why is this important? Because that is the software that lets me create a pdf book from the wiki, enabling off-line access to the rules.
After a long struggle without any result, I decided to bite the bullet. I backed up all data, and did an upgrade of the mediawiki software to 1.1.15, and spent a few hours fiddling with settings. The upshot of this being:
PDF download of the rules from the wiki once again works
Back on track for more playtesting come Saturday. Flyer rules have been written. I plan to write up the 'monsters' segment before then, and perhaps 'undead' as well.
As a side note, I could really do with some suggestions on how to get me some 'overhead' vector drawings of various troop types to make diagrams to help explain the rules. Anyone?
