+Julian Steen pointed out that I had not explained what the Fighter Bonus was in the 1.00 version of Microlite81 Public Playtest. I’ve replaced the download in the playtest announcement post with a 1.01 version that includes the Fighter Bonus explanation. If you’ve already downloaded the original 1.00 version, there’s no real need to download another copy. Here’s the added test (in the combat section):
Fighter Bonus: Dwarves, elves, fighters, and halflings have a non-zero Fighter Bonus. They may add their Fighter Bonus to their attack and damage rolls (both melee and missile).
There will be some other uses for the Fighter Bonus in optional rules and in more “complex” versions of Microlite81 (Expanded and Advanced, for example), which is why I broke it out instead of just including it in Physical Combat Bonus or the like.
Apologies for the error.
The third Sponsor Microlite81 (and Lords & Wizards) Mini-Drive for RetroRoleplaying Cancer Fund is running now. The goal is $500 with the following giveaway items: First Fantasy Campaign (1st Printing), Judge Guild Character Chronicle Cards, Basic Boxed Set (complete including original dice), Expert Boxed Set (complete including original dice), Journey to the Center of the Circle (from Wilmark Dynasty), and The Vampyre’s Mirror (also from Wilmark Dynasty). Each $10 donated gives you one chance at one of these items. The top three donors will have a separate drawing for a set of 1st printings of the original three TSR adventure modules (The Giants series as three separate modules: G1, G2, and G3) This is in addition to the usual PDF downloads and other benefits of a donation to the RetroRoleplaying Cancer Fund and sponsorship listings in the upcoming Microlite81 and Lords & Wizards games. To get help us pay our cancer treatment related bills (and to get access to some special downloads and a chance at the above-mentioned items), send a donation in any amount — small or large — to me via Paypal. Thank you!
As of 25 July 2013, $40 has been donated in this mini-drive, an additional $460 in donations is needed to trigger the drawings for the items mentioned above.
