Quoting directly from the August Briefing:
HARP Fantasy is back!
Join the new road to high adventure with HARP Fantasy. Enhanced, remastered, HARP Fantasy has drawn upon years of actual game play experience, fan feedback, and logical reasoning to improve the rules from the original 2003 and 2004 editions without compromising their playability.
Here’s your checklist of rules changes:
The Professions have been rebalanced in terms of their professional abilities
Flat 50 Development Points is the default for calculating Development Points
Races have been better balanced in terms of stat bonuses, some racial abilities have been revised, and Humans now get Skill Flexibility (the ability to make a single skill in a NonFavored category Favored)
Blood Talents have been rebalanced in terms of Development Point cost
The Mandatory Subskills rule has been incorporated from HARP SF
Four new Influence skills have been added from HARP SF
New talents have been added from HARP SF and Development Point costs of existing Talents have been properly balanced
The use of Spell Adders and Power Point Adders has been clarified
Clarifications and improvements have been made to the rules for Light & Vision, Fighting Blind, Asphyxiation and Holding Breath, Drowning and Stat Loss
Life Points have been removed and the Stun rules made consistent with HARP SF
All of the spells have had their base costs and scaling options made consistent with the revised spell creation system (to be published in the enhanced College of Magics) and descriptions have been clarified in specific cases
Herb and poison prices have been rationalized
A new monster creation system has been used to rework the monster collection with some monsters being replaced with new creatures
Several magic items have had their effects adjusted
The guidance on customizing clerics and magic users has been revised to better fit with the rules given in the enhanced College of Magics and future envisaged sourcebooks.
The Language Table and associated rules have been made consistent with HARP SF
The “Non-Adventuring Professions” have been removed – these will return in in a future sourcebook in a form suitable for PCs
We have also improved the interior artwork, replacing virtually every filler piece with meaningful illustrations. You’ll love the new art.
