Chaos Reborn reduced RNG mode for testing
There is a steam beta testing version of the next Chaos Reborn release available. You need to right click on Chaos Reborn in your steam library, select 'properties' then click on the Betas tab. Then select the 'testing' version from the dropdown. You may need to enter the secret code word which is GoblinGoblinOfSteel.
If you had asynch games in progress, please check that they are working. Just open them and play a turn and report any problems. Note: the testing version uses a duplicate of the database, so asynch turns played on the beta testing branch will be lost with official release.
This version incorporates the new reduced RNG mode (known as law mode, with the previous rules known as chaos mode).
With law mode games, casting of spells is done by spending mana and creatures have hitpoints which are reduced according the the ration of attack to defence values. Spell decks are still built randomly. Some other random elements remain - paralyse spell/attack, wind walker attack, spider web attack, subversion spell, magic attack spell loss and some talisman effects.
The tutorials and game guide have not been updated yet, although the tutorial is operating in law mode.
