Y'know what? I'm impatient. Let's start this shit!
Keep in mind that I will be listening to this
song on repeat while writing this and reading the book.
The next section is called "Necessary Gaming Materials". let's see what you need.
Apparently it's suggested that each player have a copy of the book, not just the GM. Everything else seems to be relatively normal. Also, they provide a list of what you need. Here it is.
- Numerous copies of this book
- Gaming dice (d4, d6, d8, d10, d20)
- Character Generation Program
- Neveria Fantasy World (Note from J Bridge: This is a book that explains the game's lore and world.)
- Pencils, erasers, scratch paper, and graph paper
- 25mm Miniatures or small markers such as coins
- Gaming mat (1'' grid)
So yeah. There's one problem though- Neveria hasn't been released. at least, not as far as I can see.
The next section describes terminology. They go out of their way to say that they'll be avoiding gender pronouns, replacing them with the singular they unless a gender pronoun is more appropriate. The rest of the section is explaining dice terminology. (1d10 means roll one d10 once, etc.)
Now for Math. Considering what I've heard about the game, this might be a long one. "Players will not need math that is more complicated than basic algebra, and even that is rare." Hm. Maybe what everybody's been saying about the horrendous equations and stuff was wrong. Also, apparently you always round down in this game. They also give a few examples. Apparently we need basic percentages explained to us, because that's pretty much all these examples are.
Making opening sentences for these paragraphs is starting to be a pain, so I'll just use headings from now on.
Apparently this game's term for the GM is Aedile. This term apparently comes from the ancient Roman legal system. They don't like Killer Game Masters
. Good, I guess. From what I hear it's pretty easy to die in this game, so I guess that's a good thing. The rest of the section is just standard GM stuff.
Creating A Character
This is probably going to be a big section, so I'll leave off here for now.
NO MORE MUSIC!

There's no space in the name.
