Dune Variant

Postby Jclash4686 » 16 Mar 2009, 04:18

Hi there guys. Me and Zanmor have been working on a Dune Variant for diplomacy. The map is nearing completion and rules should be coming up by Monday. The game is going to be for 6 players with most standard rules applying. If any one is intersted let me know. The map should be up for Monday or Tuesday the latest. This is looking really good.
Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

What are the rule changes, and more people will be interested with a map, I'm sure.

Dune, as in the novel by Frank Herbert?

If so, I'm in.

Yup just like the Frank Herbert novel. Everything that was in the novel is in going to be in the game. Rules should be posted later today as well as the map. Me and Zanomer are just ironing out a few details.

Yeah, I think it is coming together nicely. Jclash did an awesome job on the map. As he said, we are ironing out the rules and I am cleaning up the way they are worded, hopefully making them as easy to understand as possible.

~ In an informal or social sense, diplomacy is the employment of tact to gain strategic advantage or to find mutually acceptable solutions to a common challenge in a non-confrontational, or polite manner.
