3e Unified Rules
« on: March 25, 2017, 12:06:16 PM »
Hi All,

I'm just wondering whether anything ever came of the 3E unified rules beyond the tantalizing bits in the uTM? I realize the development was stopped at some point, but was hoping, perhaps, that some way might be found to release them now that SDS has been selling 3E itself for a while. The UTM has new sections on communications, survey and a few other things, and I was wondering how those integrated into the whole of the rules.

I've been enjoying a new game with SFA for a while, and would love to have an easier rules reference as compared to the mishmash of 3E material that exists now.

The Unified Rules project was 99%+ completed. I think the only outstanding item was the numbering on the contents page. I have a copy (as do about 30 other people from the third edition design group) but unfortunately I am not allowed to distribute it. Happy to send you a copy (or post on here) if you can get Marvin Lamb to agree to it.

Thanks, Steve. I've emailed Marvin in hopes of arranging something. :)

Well, it looks like that permission probably won't be forthcoming. I'm not interested in provoking old flame wars, but I'm still disappointed. I will muddle through with the rules as they stand, I guess.

Thanks,Steve, for all the work you did on SA. It's a great program, in service to a game I wish I'd found sooner.

er we should have probably warned you the reaction you might have got there, sorry.
The boggosity of the universe tends towards maximum.

I wasn't expecting such an, erm, cold reception. It wasn't as if I wanted the thing for freeā€¦ Ah well.
