As @Anthony has sadly given up the mantle of NCE Custodian, I have agreed to take over the role of updating and overseeing the NCE project. This new thread will take over where he left off. Note this ruleset is based on the original Necromunda rules first released in 1995 (or more accurately the Living Rulebook edition). This topic serves as a place to keep updated on the development of the Community Edition fan rules. There's download links, update news, proposed rule changes and you're welcome to post minor suggestions and queries. Larger suggestions and discussions should be made in a new topic instead of posting it in here so the wider community can respond to it and it makes later topic searching much easier.

Latest News As you can read here @Anthony will be taking a break from NCE duties for the foreseeable future. As @Anthony has sadly given up the mantle of NCE Custodian, I have agreed to take over the role. Hopefully we can continue to make this project as amazing as it can possibly be. FAQ So just what is this CE rulebook anyway? The NCE started as @Anthony 's personal project to compile the house rules used in his campaign into a rulebook that he could print off. After making it public some people showed an interest in using it themselves and so he began updating it based on their feedback. The OCE was compiled much later to fully incorporate the original Outlander rules as part of the NCE. What are its aims? To better balance the various weapons, skills, gangs, etc, to clarify ambiguities, patch up rule holes, as well as minor tweaks to improve general gameplay. There's also a few new toys to play with too. When does it get updated? It used to be updated in irregular intervals, but now it's going to be updated annually at the end of each year. Can I edit out changes I don't like? Yes, the PDFs are unprotected and can be freely edited so you're welcome to change it to suite your group's preferences. The NCE also uses the official Necromunda Online Rulebook as a template so it's easier to selectively use pages. Note there seems to be an issue with editing the NCE using Adobe Acrobat as discussed here. Are you going to add more gangs, expansions, etc? Nope, the aim is more to just provide a balanced core rule base that players can then add to themselves in whatever ways they prefer. Now that Anthony has taken an extended break from updating NCE, what are the future plans? The document will be updated with any required amendments on an annual basis, hopefully around the end of the year, following any major YakTribe events where clarifications and possible amendments are likely to be spotted. I do not plan to re-write much of the document as Anthony has already done an excellent job of the rules tweaks. I would call the current version 99% done with very few tweaks required. I prefer instead to look into any deviations from ORB and LRB versions with fresh eyes to ensure they are still required and still make sense in the wider context of the document and to fix a small number of existing inconsistencies. Suggestions and clarifications are still very much appreciated. Thank you all for your continued support of the project.
