Hi,

This message is intended to Hybrid players, particularly those that are English speaking. I’ve been working on my own to refine the rules for Hybrid, to get to the core meaning of the original translation and collate them into a single document.

I believe my revised translation brings a level of clarity so far lacking in current translations. Regardless, I felt we would all benefit from working on this from a group perspective. The end result will be sent to Rackham for their use and possible posting on the Hybrid Utilities website.

Updated post 2/2/07

This effort was suspended at Rackham's discretion. The final copy will still be sent for their use, but will not be available for public comment.

Sincerely,

Steve Rogers (epilgrim)

It's a good idea, but I was hoping I'd already achieved these aims with my rules summary, which you can find here and on www.headlesshollow.com.

this effort has different goals than the summary. The purpose of this is to literally re-write the rules and define them in sharp relief.

As a group project the hope is to invigorate the player community and get this posted to the Rackham site as a utility.

Your summary work is excellent regardless.

So far so good! Keep up the rewrite. I've read the rules dozens of times, and I think I've gotten them down, but a fresh rewrite would be great.

The project to consolidate the rules for Hybrid continues, happily with the approval of Rackham. I have done my best to capture the entire ruleset and bring clarity to the text. By presenting it here I hope to refine it even further by incorporating the combined experience and observation of the Hybrid community.

I look forward to any and all critique. Here is part 1:

I’d be honored to participate. I have done a lot of developmental work, play testing and editing for game companies, but this was my first foray into re-working another language when the translation and the grammar have to be carefully examined.

I have put in an offer to be a participant if they wish. I work pro-bono, so it really comes down to whether or not they are proprietary about their editing. At present I have a certified French translator working on the Ravage magazine scenarios.

I’m very interested, so I hope they will call me.

The rules are now complete and posted in 10 parts for your reference. If you have any questions or corrections feel free to post in the relevant thread. I hope this proves to be of use to the entire Hybrid and Rackham player community.

You’ll find them all here in the Rackham Hybrid forum:

I plan on playing this game after over a decade since purchase. Where can i get your English rewrite? As expected, the link to their site is no longer valid.

Thanks,

Tim
