Recent Easygard Changes

March 3, 2023

Updated to V8.5p.230301 "Spicy B" changes

August 12, 2022

Updated a few of the playtest changes after the official playtest doc was released and compared against initial changes

July 21, 2022

Applied playtest changes from the AICOM 2022 meeting. Given the way in which Easygard is coded, it was not easy to support both the existing V8 ruleset and the ruleset with the playtest so I made a decision to go with what likely everyone is going to be playing which is the playtest. Sorry if that doesn't match your usage pattern. If you find anything that doesn't match the playtest please email me.

I think I'm caught up with all the updates provided in the change log for the latest V8 Rules. Removed from Easygard are two separate areas I had for the growing change list. This has been put into the actual rules docs so I have that here as well in Common Misconceptions. Please be on the lookout for any typos or errors in my transcribing.
