Is there a pdf available which includes updated/reworded rules for Scythe + Invaders + Wind Gambit?

Is it just best to have the three rules in separate pamphlets/books?

We talking a complete re-work? or you just want a nice pdf to print that has the brunt of the rules from each book? (subtracting the flavor first and last pages).

One is something I'd be interested in making myself and might do that, the other is a much bigger undertaking

Just a rules reference so if you prefer to "play with everything" you don't have to reference multiple booklets to make sure you understand the rules correctly.

I have considered putting a doc together for some games, but having an official combined book gives the designer/publisher a chance to check rules interactions between expansions and perhaps clarify those if needed.

The HoN Compendium is a sweet book, but I would be as happy with a saddle-stitched booklet or even a PDF for Scythe... but given Stonemaier Games production quality we might well get a hardbound book with an art section.

The HoN Compendium sold well so I would suspect a nice version for Scythe would do likewise. Unfortunately, since Stonemaier does not do KS anymore, it would be a gamble they may not be willing to take.

Edit to add: Then there is the fact that the final expansion is not done yet...

If enough people request it on our future product request form it’s more likely to happen . https://stonemaiergames.com/about/future-printing-request-fo...

I hasten to add that I have no clue whether Jamey would make such a rulebook or not.

Seems like a decent idea. I'd suggest to have it come out a little while after Rise of Fenris releases so it can include those modules and an FAQ

I should have thought of that, thanks for reminding me!
