Completed the Quick Reference Sheet

I’ve been waffling on creating a Quick Reference Sheet, mainly because I find after one or two games a person knows the rules well enough to not need it. But I’m aiming to make this game easy for other people to play, and surely someone out there would like a one page reference of modifiers, available actions per turn, etc.

So with that in mind I whipped up a nice looking document. I’ve integrated this into the main rulebook (for v0.9) so this will be the only direct download of the PDF, since going forward you’d just print the last page of the rulebook and be done with it.

Anyways if you’re interested please download the Quick Reference Sheet (PDF). If you’re interested with how it looks, well, here is an image:

PS: West Test is such a great flavorful font! Except I totally forgot to set the headers in Items.odt (the weapons, armor, and equipment lists) to that font, whoops. Remedied now.

A bunch of links

I’ve collected a few links I wanted to share, since they are clogging up my email.

  • Dinosaur Central Weird Wild West – Tons of great dinosaur and cowboys artwork, some of which you might recognize from this site (well mainly Go West). I’d like to try to get a mention on this site eventually, but we’ll see.
  • Dinosaur Toys List – Gigantic list of various companies and their prehistoric offerings. Almost like a to-purchase list.
  • TheMiniaturesPage topic – I visit this board irregularly for The Sword and The Flame, but maybe it’s time to post and see if I can get some feedback on the rules, as they seem like a pretty sharp bunch of wargames.
  • The Lost World book – And not the silly new one, but the 1900s Arthur Conan Doyle (of Sherlock Holmes fame) version. His equally old book “The White Company” is one of my favorite novels, but that’s beside the point.
  • Journey to the Center of the Earth book – Speaking of books here is another old classic with some dinosaur-ific nods.
  • Bone Wars and Two Tiny Claws books by Brett Davis – I have no idea, but it looks right up my alley.
  • The Fallen Cloud Saga books – Alternative history where dinosaurs existed during the colonizing of America and the natives have tamed them.
  • The Last Dinosaur book – I am up in the air on this one, but maybe it’d be interesting. I think it’d just frustrate and annoy me though.
