Werepig in a World of Piggies

In Rabbits & Rangers I have a short section on lycanthropy. It's a weird idea, isn't it? A world of talking animals... what do the lycanthropes turn into? I suggested in the book that a PC infected should randomly roll what type of animal they transform into. In that way, you could be a duck bitten by a wereskunk and then you transform into an evil, bloodthirsty werepig.

I still like that idea. But in the new game I'm going to leave some of it up to the Ringmaster's discretion. I'm trying to keep my rules and text more open to rulings-not-rules. While I am very proud of the R&R book based on Labyrinth Lord, I still find even that to be a little too fiddly for funny animal fantasy as I want to experience it.

Anyway, yes, I'm currently working on the new game. Still no real idea about when it will be ready. I'll share more as I get more into it.

Also... should I make this game in color or keep the interior art black and white? My instinct is black and white, as that's my wheelhouse. But I suppose I should at least consider doing this in color. Right now I have to be honest: I'm 75% leaning black and white for the interior.
