Warcrabs

This is meant to be a secondary home to the wargame, Warcrabs!.

In Warcrabs! you play the part of a new Associated Holistic Technology (AssHo Tech) employee pitting claw to competitive claw in the AssHo Tech crab-fighting ring. The fictional history of how crab-fighting originated, as well as the game-play rules, are found within the Warcrabs! manual.

To cover a little history, the original manual was released to the public by the original author, Di Mo. However, when it was released, the manual was made available only as a PDF. If you know anything about PDFs, it's that they are nigh-impossible to modify which is contradictory to what the author, as well as the license, encourages. To be fair, the content of the manual was in turn copied into a wiki by the original author.

So in response to the closed-format of the original PDF, I have edited the original document and placed the result into an open document format. Below you will find the source text saved in a LaTeX document which can be easily accessed and modified. If you are here only for the revised edition of the manual, you will find it here also.
