The living rules as produced by L2 games will be used and provided to all entrants.

Tournament Round 1 Start Date: 1 November 2006 

Tournament Round 1 End Date: 31 January 2007 

Match Assignments:

All matches will be done randomly. Sufficient byes will be awarded in the first round to ensure that no byes will be given in later rounds. Byes will be assigned randomly.

Rules Disputes & Errata:

All disputes or questions about the game rules are to be directed to the Gamemaster. The GM rulings will be final. The GM Assistant will handle disputes and questions in matches involving the GM.


May be handled in any manner agreed upon by both players; die roll web sites ShadowDice and Irony are strongly recommended. When using a die roller, the phasing player must e-mail the impulse's moves prior to sending for the combat die rolls. A player may choose to resolve one combat at a time or do them all at once with all possible results listed. If resolving them individually, a player must resolve (and communicate the results of) a battle completely before resolving another battle.

Playing Aides:

The recommended RB PBeM tools is the "Above the Fields" software developed by Hank Burkhalter and available at If any discrepancies are observed between the physical and electronic equivalents, the physical component takes precedence.
