I spent my November working on an article for RedBrick, looking at the Step System for Earthdawn and running a break-down analysis of the different parts of it.
This is an analysis that I originally did years ago, but I hadn’t ever put it into a coherent, well-written essay before (with accompanying graphs, because we all know graphs are cool).
You can find the full article at the Earthdawn website.
PS — RedBrick’s latest Earthdawn release, the adventure Burning Desires is available in electronic format from RPGNow and DriveThruRPG. The print edition should be available early next year.
