As we mentioned since the beginning, Wretched Bastards, and the Wretched system itself, is a work in progress. That’s why the Red Room’s OSR dark fantasy game already had so many changes that a real update is needed. The changes aren’t enough to be called a second edition, though it will be given a new layout. It’s a revised edition with a new look, as it wasn’t just the rules that changed a bit over the last five months; my layout skills have also improved. So, this will be free to all who have purchased the game. The latest Wretched Bastards version (1.7) will remain available if you prefer the original look and more straightforward game mechanics. There will be a print on demand option as well (the original version will still be available for pod as well). For now, here’s a quickstart so you can get a taste of the revamped Bastards.
