Wiki updated, pdf download works again

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?


  1. Hi Derk,

    Where can I download a copy of your rules?

    Keep up the good work



  2. Send me your email address and I will invite you to the play test yahoo group.

  3. Dear Derek;

    As per Warren, have been following the playtests and interested in a download copy to playtest.

    Enjoy your work


  4. Folks if you want me to send a copy I'm going to need your email address. Don't worry I will not publish comments that contain an email address.
