Hey gang, back in September there was talk of
what a grand idea compiling a 'companion guide'
to the 10th Ed. would be.
While I think that this companion would probably
reduce the likelyness of most players that haven't
read the rules to do so, I do think that it would
greatly increase the overall knowledge of the
So I went ahead and started on it. I scrubbed
through the rules forum to find the areas that had
the most questions asked (and also where the
rules probaly should be changed), and came up
with a good table of contents for such a beast.
Here it is, finally, in all its glory. It's a bit long,
but that's what happens when you put rules into
plain(er) language. It's 14 pages while the 10th
ed is 12 pages.
Let me preface this by saying that this is my
interpretation of the rules, both as written, and in
a few cases, not as written, but as they are
played in the VUL. This isn't the entire rule book,
but just the ones that people seem to ask about
over and over again.
There's not a whole lot of value in one person's
interpretation of the rules, so I'm looking for
feedback and constructive comments (well I'm
happy to have the non-constructive ones too).
Eventually, if this gets to a point where it
accurately reflects how we play Ulty in the VUL,
I'd love to see it handed out to captains.
So send along your comments here or email me
