A new draft version of Dungeon Delving Undying Light is available for donors to the RetroRoleplaying Cancer Fund is available. The major additions are more low HD monsters and an optional ritual magic system. The ritual magic system is open-ended and allow more magic in the game than the handful of spells. Of course, they require a number of prerequisites that must be met before the ritual can be performed and the chance of success isn’t great — unless you do even more prep beyond the required prerequisites. Ritual magic can, in theory, be performed by anyone or anything intelligent enough to read and manage a complex ritual (although magic-users and clerics have a better chance of success). This means that ritual magic is great for NPC villains in a campaign.
I’ve also uploaded the latest version of BX Advanced with art for donors: version 1.03 which has a number of corrections for typos and missing text.
