    Hellfrost Resource Management 2nd Edition
    ==========
    When we devised Hellfrost we wanted it to be a game about heroes—men and women who, through brave and noble deeds, could aspire to fame and glory. That we achieved. That said, the only permanent legacy a hero could leave was a name for his ancestors to honor and skalds to sing about. Then we created the _Resource Management_ rules, which allowed heroes to run communities. Now, we’re proud to release a 2nd edition of those rules. We’ve dragged Wiggy away from his current projects to talk about the new edition.

    Why a new version?
    The current rules do their job well, but the Resource was isolated from the wider world, a blip on the map affected only by random events. In the new version, the Resource has multiple neighbors with whom the ruler can interact. Not only do some random events involve them, but the heroes can use Ruler Actions each season to affect the neighbors. If you want a trade alliance to boost your prosperity, you can ask a neighbor, for instance. Likewise, you don’t have to wait for raiders – you can decide to launch an attack against them.

    Doesn’t this change the feel of the game?
    Yes, and that is intentional. Adventuring is one way of playing _Hellfrost_, but this gives another dimension. It gives the heroes a place in the world and makes their actions important not just for themselves but for future generations. One might, for instance, start with a small village in the Freelands, but grow to carve up more land and become a major player in the region. Not that adventuring is forgotten – that’s why you hire officials to run the Resource will you go slaughtering monsters.

    So it’s _Birthright_ for _Hellfrost_?
    On a much smaller scale. We’re not creating rules for running kingdoms, interacting with distant realms, or conquering the world.

    Any major changes to the rules?
    Quite a few actually. First, we’ve added Resource Faith, which is the collective Faith of the inhabitants. This in turn has altered other things, such as how certain Events work and Resource miracles. We’ve added new officials, such as clerics, inquisitors, and reeves. Armies and raids have been streamlined, making it much easier to handle your troops. Many of the Events have been tweaked, but there are also new ones.

    When will it be out?
    The PDF will be released next week!

    I was so excited to get the news via the TAG Talk email this morning.

    Just in time for my new Hellfrost campaign starting December 16. I expect the Resource Management 2nd Edition to play a major part of the campaign and the combat related adventures to play supporting roles much of the time.
