Greetings Fellow Ops players!
I wanted to give you guys (All three of you) that read this blog just on what the hell i've been doing with little to no updates.
Currently, I'm working on all the books but I'm pretty much about done with any major edits, fixes, and other corrections. I'm wrapping up a variant rule by Gary, and I'm going to work on reviving the old Resident Evil (2) module I mothballed seven years ago, making it updated for the current version.
There will be a lot of new goodies coming in with this release, but not in their usual "I added a bunch of guns" form.
For a taste test, I'll post the current changelog for the Core rulebook below.
As always, if you have any questions, feel free to email me. We also have a discord, email me and I'll send it to you to join so you too can directly complain at me about what I'm doing wrong! :D
