We expect to release the first part of the BETA of the KULT: Divinity Lost Core Rules later this week (target date is Friday the 22nd). The complete Core Rules will consist of three distinct sections (or "books"), one for the Player, one for the GM, and one describing the world and mythos of the KULT: Divinity Lost universe. These three sections are called “Book I: The Lie”, “Book II: The Madness”, and “Book III: The Truth”, respectively.
(And to make it super clear - these three sections all will come in the form of a single physical book when printed.)
We had hoped to be able to release all three books at the same time, however Book II and Book III will not ready for BETA before Christmas, and are expected to arrive after the new year. Instead of waiting with Book I, which is in BETA, until the rest are ready, we split the Core Rules BETA release, and Book I arrives this week.
Book I: The Lie is the Player section, and will include Character generation, all aware level archetypes (the enlightened archetypes are included in Book II and III), the sleeper level player character, rules for how to create a new archetype, the full list of Advantages and Disadvantages and Dark Secrets, detailed Basic Moves, and Equipment and Gear (and weapons). In total 80 pages of information.
What BETA means is that the book is “content complete”, meaning no major additions or changes will be made. The BETA is missing some artwork and minor texts
We would very much appreciate feedback during the upcoming weeks, before we start printing the physical books. The feedback we would like to be pointed out is, for example, grammar mistakes, typos, formatting errors, and things that need to be tweaked or better explained. Major rewrites or structural changes will not happen at this stage.
We have made the raw texts available during ALPHA stage, and really appreciated the feedback we got. If you made a comment during ALPHA and notice the error remains, please note it in the BETA for final catch-up.
