Normally I’m not one to post rumors and breaking news but I can’t help it with this one. TastyTaste over at Blood of Kittens put this article up referencing documents you can snag (check the comments section as the top one no longer works), and the article hits the high points of the leaked 6th edition rules.
Now, normally I give little thought to rumors and read them like everyone else but I won’t get bent out of shape because of them or get my hopes up. This is different, to me, because of the accompanying documents. See, when 5th was rumored to be close to being out a leaked PDF of the rules for 5th hit the web. Guess what? That leaked PDF was EXACTLY the same as the rulebook when it finally landed. We’ve all heard 6th is close and now we have a leaked version of 6th? We’ll all draw our own conclusions I’m sure.
I will say though that if there’s truth to this then the game as we know it is going to change. Without digesting everything in the document I can’t say if it’s for the better or the worse. It does appear though that dumbing down the game is definitely not in the cards if what’s in here is true. The complexity is certainly higher than 4th and 5th edition.
