As I’ve said before in addition to DBMM I also play DBR. I enjoy the different way this DBx system plays with a much greater feel of units and less need to care about the flanks.
Quick Reference Sheet
Earlier I was trawling through some old files when I came across a play sheet I developed in 2006 and thought I’d post it here as a pdf download. This is a15 mm version and it uses cm as the unit of measure for speed of play.
I know that rules writers have to use a “universal measure”, like paces, to cater for multiple scales but the idea of a play sheet is to help you play as quickly as possible not to test your mental arithmetic skills every 10 seconds. If you need a version in paces then it’s here.
Start Up Guide
Unfortunately, DBR isn’t as well supported as DBMM so there are less resources about but this afternoon I did stumble across a start up and weather guide on a site from New Zealand.
I was impressed with the guide and especially the deployment diagram. The only drawbacks I spotted were some inconsistencies in nomenclature and formatting. The worst being that attacker and invader were used interchangeably. Also all measurements were in paces. So I set about revising the sheet mainly so that all distances were in cm. I started with a new deployment diagram:
As I was doing this I realised that the guide could flow more smoothly if the sections were reordered slightly. For example, I moved the area feature definitions closer to the section on terrain placement. Finally, to get my version to fit on one page I had to tighten the wording a touch. The resulting guide is here.
I’d like to thank the New Zealander for inspiring me to do this and providing the original start up guide.
