What format will it be available in? PDF? Hardcopy? Or both?

And congrats! ;-)

Thanks,
Franklin

PDF far as I know. It'd have to do insanely well to get a hard copy - that's just a guess mind you I have no control over those sorts of things. I just write (hopefully) fun stuff.

It is nominally able to cover any genre, any TL, any game. There are examples in the back for fantasy, sci-fi, and post-apocalypse.

If the book does well I have ideas for follow-ups that will get into more edge cases that I removed from the main book for being, well, edge cases.
Thanks Christopher, I think you’ve answered all my questions but I may come back with some after I buy it (which by my reckoning if released in March should be the 25th, just in time for the Easter weekend the following week).

No problem, I want to see it released too - even if this book has me dealing with imposter syndrome hard. It was years of work and I really hope folks like it.

Does it model things like civil unrest, such as civil wars or opponent political factions

In broad strokes, yes.

Really looking forward to it!

Will it be usable as a sort of story-generating tool, especially in the background, like the Faction system in Stars Without Number?

Can't really go into that, but it's inspired by the GURPS Lite combat engine. Simple, but robust. It has things like "Negotiate" or "Marshal Manpower" as actions you can perform for the realm.

Never heard of it. Again, it's main role is to providing a roleplaying tool for PCs to run realms (whatever that may be).
