Currently, we are looking at close to 10 manuals or guides to ship with Southern Storm and that volume of information will change over time as bugs are fixed, game play is tweaked, and new features are added to the core game engine. Our plan is to use more of a "living rules" mode going forward. In this case, as updates are generated, we plan to update or add to the existing documentation instead of utilizing a What's New doc like we did for Red Storm. The upside is we push out updated PDF documentation and wiki site (planned for our new website). The downside is a printed manual (just the main game manual like Red Storm) becomes obsolete with the update.

So the question put forth here is the following: In what form(s) would you prefer to see future game documentation? You can choose more than one. If there is another way let me know in the comments.

pdf's for me, so it's user choice to print, saves paper, but lets those who wish to have one, print there own imo

edited as also would be nice if it or all could be accessed in game if and when needed etc?

good idea and doable or not?

Zakblood, you can call up the PDFs from the help menu in game now. That feature should should stay in any of the follow on games. Or are you looking for something different?

I LOVE your living rulebook approach, where the complete rulebooks are always updated with the latest and greatest. The What's New approach was ok, but there got to be too many documents to refer to as each new version came out. Consolidating and keeping the "one rulebook to rule them all" always up to date is awesome!

Thank you!
