Regent Guide versions
« on: July 03, 2013, 06:47:05 pm »
Matt, Andy - This is a question we felt needed to get kicked up to you.  There's several versions of the Regent Guide that have been processed, edited, and considered to one degree or another, up to version 2.25.  Which of these is currently the canon ruleset for us to begin discussions from?  There's a lot of changes and neat ideas that Bjorn was working on integrating in his latest versions, but they weren't part of the game when we stopped, and we don't even know how complete and tested they are - the latest versions were very much works-in-progress, and we don't know anything about how much 'progress' they still needed.  How should we proceed?

I haven't had a chance to speak to Matt, but I suspect the practical approach is to say the last "published" version is what we are working with, and any other discussions should be considered ongoing to be notified when changed.  If any rules appear to cause problems then they can be discussed and dealt with on a case-by-case basis, particularly newer rules.

The downloads shows 2.21 as the latest version - any higher bidders?

2.20 is technically the newest release.

2.21 and 2.20 are almost identical though, I'm not even sure what has changed between the two.

I think we are looking for the highest version of COMPLETE rules

Let me rephrase since the subject is still brought up in the chat.

Can anyone explain to me why 2.20 is more complete than 2.21

Okay.
This is how I see the RG version issues, as detailed as possible

2.20 was written in 2010

2.21 was written in 2011 (NEWEST)

2.20 was taken down from the downloads section and re-added again after 2.21 for reference. (confusing some people to think it had been updated)

2.21 contain ALL the chapters and rules that 2.20 did. The only changes I have found are minor changes to some of the assets a domain can have. Other changes might be there as well as 2.21 is over 0.5mb larger than 2.20.

2.25 contain only the first 4 chapters and the first part of chapter 5. While the finished 2.25 might very well be an improvement, mixing 2.21 and 2.25 will be like mixing different editions of any other game system. It will function sometimes, be completely broken at other times and stop functioning all together at yet other times.

How I see it:
2.21 is the newest and most complete set of rules released.

Correct me if I am wrong.
