Legends of Steel update

The responses from the Legend of Steel review team are in, discussions have been held and the re-writing of some portions and "beefing up" of others has begun. Spell casting PC's will remain a part of the core rules (It was a 50/50 split on that one. Some feeling it wasn't' true to the genre of S&S, others citing characters such as The Grey Mouser, Kane and Elric as magic wielding S&S characters), the skills system has been revamped, the experience point system has been tweaked. The most requested thing is the easiest to fix but the most time consuming- giving examples. The guys on the team want more examples of character creation- by the numbers, so to speak. Also expanded examples on combat and task resolution. Several fully fleshed characters were also called for.
