Draft of Dungeon Delving RPG Available to Donors

Draft of Dungeon Delving RPG Available to Donors

By request of one of my Sunday game players, I’ve been working on a digest-sized version of Swords & Wizardry Continual Light that can easily be used on tablets. Naturally, I could not resist tinkering with the game while I did so. I’ve rearranged some of the text and made a few other...

Technologist Class for 0e Coming in Tarnhelm’s Terrible Tome Revision

Technologist Class for 0e Coming in Tarnhelm’s Terrible Tome Revision

I’ve been asked to officially write up my technologist class for 0e. A techno studies spells to figure out how to recreate them with (steampunk style weird) science. He can then build devices which more or less duplicate the effects of the spell. Most start out as huge, non-portable devices (think: fill a...

Happy New Year I: BX Advanced Playtest Version 0.75 Released

I know i said just before Christmas that I had released the last playtest version of BX Advanced Gold Edition. I was wrong (sounds better than “I lied”). I’ve released a new playtest 0.75 version with a new cover (which may or may not be the cover for the release version), a sample...

Play OSR D&D on an Amazon Echo?

I’ve had an Amazon Echo Dot for over a year now. If fact, we now have three because they are much easier for my wife (with her MS-related hand issues) to use than a normal timer, alarm clock, etc. I’ve never found the games available as skills to be all that much fun...

BX Advanced Rules: Multiple Success Rolls and Probability

BX Advanced Rules: Multiple Success Rolls and Probability

In the “GM Advice” section of the BX Advanced rules, I’m trying to tackle a problem I see quite a bit of in play: Gamemasters not truly understanding that requiring multiple successful rolls to complete a simple task will reduce the final chance of success. Even those Gamemasters who realize this often do...

Microlite81 Complete Digest/Epub Price Permanently Reduced to $7.50

Microlite81 Complete Digest/Epub Price Permanently Reduced to $7.50

I released a slightly revised and expanded (with 25 additional monsters) digest/epub version of Microlite74 Complete on DrivethruRPG/RPGNow last weekend for $9.95. That seemed to be a reasonable price for 380+ page PDF. However, after releasing it I decided to do an initial rough conversion of Microlite81 Advanced to a digest-sized document. That...
