    Thanks, I’ve downloaded the updated rules. Reading the rules I realized I’m a little rusty on Five Core rules.

    Cheers!

    This is actually a complete change from the FiveCore mechanics and written specifically for solo gaming instead.
    Hope it works for you!

    How compatible will my Five Parsecs 1st ed “group” be with the 2nd edition and Gang Warfare rules?

    I gotta post in english? With all those awesome games out there with foreign language titles? C'est la vie!

    Cheers!

    Most of the same dice results for character creation will be in the new version.

    If you have skills, upgrades etc., much of that will NOT carry over. I suggest taking each “trait” you earned and converting it to 5 XP, then buying some stat upgrades instead.
    For some of the stranger character types, you will have to fiddle with it a bit or create a special rule or two.

    Another question: is Five Parsecs 2nd Edition still FiveCore? Reading commentary, it looks like it might not be the same rules engine.

    No, it’s an original (but very simple) system geared specifically for solo play.

    I finished reading the rules last night and I like the new initiative system. I had my doubt but the enemy behavior is also simple enough for me to use.

    Yeah, i think the new initiative mechanic flows a lot better. I wish I had thought of that up front.

    The AI stuff is something that can be tweaked almost indefinitely.
