As you probably know by now, the Holmes manuscript revelations on the Zenopus Archives Blog have set up a mini-earthquake in the BLUEHOLME™ Compleat Rules. Now that things (including my Xmas dinner) have had a chance to settle somewhat, the revisions to my rules are taking shape. One of the primary changes is, of course, on classes. In addition to expanded rules on multi-classing and character races, the Compleat Rules will now feature the following classes:

  1. Assassin
  2. Cleric
  3. Druid
  4. Fighter
  5. Illusionist
  6. Magic-User
  7. Monk
  8. Paladin
  9. Ranger
  10. Thief
  11. Witch

After a quick check on the amount of additional pages likely to be required, especially the spell listings for the three additional spell caster classes, it seems perfectly feasible to include these in the main rules. No need to squish them into an appendix or even an add-on booklet. Any worries you may have had about splat book bloat may now abate!
