Pregen PCs & Quick Reference Sheets for Long XVIth

Early alpha playtesting with friends continues for Long XVIth, and I hope to release a public playtest in October or November. As work towards that end continues (and while there’s not a full rules reference to share), I’m happy to be able to post the pregen characters and reference sheets I’m sharing with my current playtesters.

I hope this will wet your whistle – and give you some high level insights into how the current iteration of the game works and looks, along with the (somewhat deprecated) Long XVIth character creation rules from a few weeks back.

Profession. Temperament. Social Class. The factional Entanglement. Here are six pregen player characters – one for all six professions (the rough analogue to D&D / OSR classes).

Long XVIth Quick Reference Sheets

Action Rolls (a 1-3d10, risk vs. reward dice pool), Reaction Rolls (analogous to OSR saves), and Conditions (narrative damage, status, and environmental trackers) form the core of the gameplay loop.

Here is a double-sided handout that, along with a character sheet overview, provides a step-by-step flowchart for that gameplay for playtesters.

Would love your feedback!

(And oh yes, the fonts and typefaces are different. I’m still very much trying to find the “right” combination.)
