While the revised edition of HOW was planned for 2016-- I think revising now would be better than waiting until later. Why? Because it needs to be done and the additional character options I have planned may only compound confusion if the core rules are not tightened up now.
My plan is to clear it up, clean it up, remove ambiguity and condense it down. The revised core rule book will also drop in price and there will be less overall content.
It will contain the core rule, skills and equipment There will be some IQ 8, IQ 9 , and IQ 10 spells, some creatures and some treasures. The core rules price will also drop, most likely in half to $10 print and $6 PDF.
Over in the forums I set up a "revised edition" thread
where you can post your issues that need to be fixed.
I am clear already that the Berserk combat action needs work. :)
