Tiny's Tweaked TI3 House Rules

From TI3 PBF Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The goal of this page is to build a TI3 rule "preset" based on my own experience with all the variants that I've encountered in the games I've played. It is an attempt to: - tweak some of the races - remove unneeded 'randomness' - include the most optional rules - include the best houserules out there

You will also notice that there will be some unconventional houserules in this list.

To continue to improve this list ALL the games I will GM in the future will be based on this list of rules.
