Should I Move the Microlite74/78/81 Forum to a Google+ Community?

Microlite74 has a forum. You may not know this because it has not been very active the past couple of years. I’ve received several suggestions that I should just move it to a Google+ community — from people who would prefer it to be a Google community, of course. While I hate to...

The Paladin and Gryphons & Gramarye Basic Public Playtest 1.0 Available

The Paladin and Gryphons & Gramarye Basic Public Playtest 1.0 Available

About 10 days ago I posted a playtest report on Gryphons & Gramarye (see Gryphons & Gramarye Report from the Trenches: What Works and What Fails) where I reported that the Hunter class had problems and players really wanted a cleric class.

One of my Sunday Game players printed out the latest draft version of Gryphons & Gramarye, read it, and sparked quite a discussion after yesterday’s game. He thinks I would be better off working from the Whitebox version of S&W instead of the Core Rules version that I’m using now. His reasons: S&W...

Including Microlite74 Optional Rules in Gyphons and Grammarie?

Including Microlite74 Optional Rules in Gyphons and Grammarie?

Gyphons & Grammarie is the working title of the set of variant rules for S&W I’m working on — based on the same 0e house rules I incorporated into Microlite74 3.0 Extended. I’ve had a few requests to include S&W version of some of the more popular optional rules in Microlite74 Companion I...
