MF WARS (Medieval Fantasy Wargame and Roleplaying System)
It's been a long time coming. I had some thoughts about building this system for miniatures combat a decade ago but I am glad now that I did not. Part of what moved it to the backburner was the Open Game Movement, particularly the OGL and d20 System License, which created opportunities that were too tempting to ignore. Part of what kept it on the backburner was a series of advances on the wargaming rules side of the industry. What followed those early thoughts of system building were ten years of fun that has fueled what I believe is a much more organic process of creativity. The Medieval Fantasy Combat Miniatures Game (MF CMG) has become the groundwork for the Medieval Fantasy Wargame and Roleplaying System (MF WARS). Both the combat minis game and the full wargame and roleplaying system will be the main focus of this blog.
