Nod rule set first print

My first full rule set, the Land of Nod, is complete. I had a lot of help form my brother and a very good friend. This is the second or third draft, and needed to be printed as a working prototype to hand in for a portion of my Thesis requirements at San Jose State. The hard bound book was printed at, and they did a pretty nice job!

Peeking in on the inside of the cover. This draft of the book needs a couple more passes to finish off some of the rules and fluff sections, and get art in. While its playable now, it needs some solid testing, over a few months, before I am ready to finalize anything. 

Here is a peek at a page of mutable profiles, and their special rules. The game focuses heavily on the composition of your force, rewarding those who love to seriously customize their game play experience- an option that is becoming more and more rare as games become more and more streamlined.

Behind the rule book are some early prototypes for a force's roster sheet. They are laminated for ease of use during game

Here is a quick example of a draft of a layout detailing one of the missions in the book.

Sneak peek of some of the deployment zones for an included campaign. There is also a first look at an old world map of Nod, though much of this has changed at this point. 

A first draft of some fluff in a page layout.

First draft of a model and its stat line. Rules are not set, but this gives you an idea of  how the information will be arranged on a page. All profiles are broken down on an easy to use chart later in the book.

Some early art for one of the models in the book. It has been used for the character page above.
