The Forgotten Game: Microlite20 Comprehensive Edition

Queue the Twilight Zone theme song. I was cleaning up the projects area of my hard drive this morning. I found a game, Microlite20 Comprehensive Edition, that I apparently worked on and finished in 2015. I somehow forgot about it. All it needs is layout. How could I have forgotten an entire game?...

Summer Heat Wave Fund Drive (with Old School Donor Giveaway Items)

It’s been about two and a half years since I’ve had to do a fund-raising drive to help pay for my wife’s many medical issues (oral cancer survivor, spine issues, and now multiple sclerosis). This is due to moving to a state that expanded medicaid so my wife has insurance that actually covers...

A Second Edition of Microlite78 First Edition Lite?

Microlite78 fan Robert has been at it again. While he was happy to see the digest/ebook version of Microlite78 First Edition Lite, he pointed out that i could do a version much closer to 1e now that I have more than the Microlite74 material to work with. He’s right. The original mandate for...

Back in 2015, I created a special version of Microlite74 designed for my Wilderlands of High Fantasy game.

Dungeon Delving Undying Light SRD Now Online

I’ve created a Dungeon Delving Undying Light “SRD” web site where the entire Dungeon Delving Undying Light rules are online as web pages. The site is not spectacular to look at, but it is functional and allows reading the Dungeon Delving Undying Light rules from a web browser on just about any modern...

Playing Dungeons & Dragons as a Test of Artificial Intelligence?

The article below points out that getting a computer to play Dungeons & dungeons and pass a human player might be a better test of artificial intelligence than games like Go or Chess. I agree that playing Dungeons & Dragons (or any tabletop RPG) requires showing a much different time of intelligence than...
