i finally finished reading through the rule book today and started glancing through the campaign book. Some initial comments...

- i really appreciate the rulebook section describing how to streamline/simplify play (e.g. by not using Events). The whole time i was reading the rules, i was trying to devise ways to simplify play for tutorial/learning purposes (my idea was to leave out formations, "encircling" and related bits), and then came across this very useful chapter which provides various solutions.

- it's obvious that someone put tons of work/research into the campaign book. At 110 pages, it's far larger than the core rulebook. There's easily a couple years' worth of play value in that book.

It's likely to be another 2 weekends before i actually get to play Onus, but i love what i'm seeing. i've got a few rules questions, but i'll wait until trying them on the table before posting them (maybe they'll be obvious once the cards are on the table).

I completely agree! I was stunned with what all came with the game system and the production value on everything was top notch. The scenario book is simply incredible. I was just floored with how much work just went into the book alone!

i think (but not sure) that the campaign book is KS-only (which would be a shame if that's the case, because it's epic in scale).

I think (not 100%) that it is available as a free download from the Draco Ideas website.

I meant the English version of the core set.

i unfortunately can't find it there . This page has several files related to the campaign book, but apparently not the book itself:
