Hi there, if I might ask, in very rough terms what changed in 2nd Edition of Legacy?
And which families does it feature? Are the Starfarers or the Synthetic Hive included?

Also, FYI, I could only access your blog by adding /blog to the adress bar, the link at the top still leads to co.uk.

Hi! All Families and Characters from all three 1st edition books are represented here, though all of them have seen at least a few edits and some have been comprehensively rewritten.
For 2e, we have:
– Tied gameplay much closer to the map, both in the family creation session and as you play.
– Given characters a role within their family, and advancement as they change roles.
– Rewritten basically all the basic moves.
– Made a gear system that waxes and wanes based on a family’s surpluses, and rules for Tech that make it more freeform but also better directed.
– Added a ton more play advice and examples of play.
That’s the high-level view, at least. Check out the free quickstart if you want to see it in more detail!
(also, thanks for letting me know about the blog link – should be fixed now)

Thanks for your answer, I’ve bought it. So far I’m liking what I’ve seen. I’ve noticed it’s also written much clearer than the first version, which I like a lot.
