New UPDATED DRV Rulebook available + Overworld Campaign live today!

Hello DRV backers!

NEW AND IMPROVED DRV RULEBOOK AVAILABLE!

Please pardon the interruption, it is good to be writing to you again!

We have been working on an update to the Darkrock Ventures rulebook that closes all the gaps that we have been band-aiding with a FAQ, but now there is a complete rulebook update available for you! I've been hard at work learning more and more about inDesign to make these changes all appear correctly and keep everything in good order throughout the booklet.

This version of the rulebook was designed to include all of the corrections and explanations as noted in version 1.2 of the FAQ document. We have expanded the syntax in many areas to be less ambiguous and erred on the side of redundancy in some areas to help everyone out. Please let me know if you find anything wrong with it! Now it should be much easier for me to make more regular updates and corrections! 

It will be available for download soon on Board Game Geek but in the meanwhile, you can access it right now from here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B3o26G4PNjxIUjdrOWV3R3ZQY2s 

This new version would not have been possible without all of your help submitting corrections and questions! Thank you for helping us support and improve our games!

We would also like to mention some MMG news: 

OVERWORLD Kickstarter now LIVE!

We have seen a lot of familiar names so far as we launched the KS campaign for our third game, Overworld! If you haven't seen it yet, please take a look and consider joining us! We have been improving our technique and delivery times since we began with Darkrock Ventures and we would love the chance to wow you again. 

Overworld takes more of a Euro-like approach to the theme, tile-placement and territory control without player elimination with a retro 16-bit theme that helps tie everything together in our second installment of the Super Nano Enhanced Series that began our 2nd project, Fire of Eidolon! If you missed the FoE campaign, we are offering it again through the Overworld PledgeManager, and we'd love to have you back!

Thank you all very much for your continued support!

      If you don't want to reprint the entire thing, then you'd probably find more value in just the FAQ document which is still available here: https://boardgamegeek.com/filepage/140984/faq-drv-frequently-asked-questions-reference-offic

      This document is basically what you're looking for, a 2-page list of just the corrections :)

      Printing that rulebook at home would be very ink-intensive. Do you have an ink-friendly version, or a list of changes that could be used to manually edit the old rulebook?
