Time for a new edition of the Microlite20 RPG Collection

Time for a new edition of the Microlite20 RPG Collection

On April 4th, 2014 I made a post stating it was probably time for a new version of the free Microlite20 RPG Collection (see Time for the 2014 Edition of the Microlite20 RPG Collection) and that I hoped to have a new version out by the end of that month. When I made...

The latest version of Morgan Mains’ Pathfinder LITE is now available for download in PDF format in Microlite20.org‘s download area. Pathfinder LITE is a Microlite20-like versiion of Pathfinder.

Microlite20 Rules Now Available in a Tablet-Friendly PDF

Microlite20 Rules Now Available in a Tablet-Friendly PDF

While I’m not much of a tablet (or smartphone for that matter) person, I was given an Acer A1-810. I don’t really use it for much more than a fancy ereader to supplement my old nook. I have used it enough to know that using multi-column pdfs is a real pain, even using...

New Microlite20 Web Site: Microlite20.org

New Microlite20 Web Site: Microlite20.org

As the official Microlite20 website (microlite20.net) has a history of disappearing or being non-functional for various (often long) periods of time, I have created a new (and very unofficial) home for Microlite20 (and all its variants): Microlite20.org. At the moment, Microlite20.org is a small one page site that briefly explains what Microlite20 is,...

Fourteen New Free Microlite20 Downloads (Including 5e Variants)

Fourteen New Free Microlite20 Downloads (Including 5e Variants)

I’ve added a number of new Microlite20 supplements and variants to the download area of the RetroRoleplaying web site. Some of these are brand new, others are updates of older files. Three new Microlite20 “5e” variants are included. Both the downloads and the games are free. Added: In case you can’t figure out...

Does the World need a “Microlite20 Extended”?

Does the World need a “Microlite20 Extended”?

I have received what appears to me to be a very strange request: that I write an “extended version” of Microlite20. After some back and forth in email with this person (who I will refer to as Jack), I think I finally understand what this means and it is probably something I could...

Time for the 2014 Edition of the Microlite20 RPG Collection

Time for the 2014 Edition of the Microlite20 RPG Collection

It’s been about two years since The Microlite20 RPG Collection 2012 Edition came out, so it’s probably time to start work on the 2014 Edition. Unfortunately, other than my various Microlite74 and Microlite81 releases, I haven’t seen many new Microlite20-based games. I have a new version of Beacon (Draft Version 6), Dark Heritage,...

Whither Microlite20?

Whither Microlite20?

I received an email over the weekend bemoaning the fact that latest versions of Seth Drebitko’s revision of Microlite20 seems to be pulling a “DnD 4e” — publishing an almost completely different game under the name of an older game and that you had to pay to download copies of Microlite20. I was...

Original Microlite20 Rules in Word Processor Formats

Original Microlite20 Rules in Word Processor Formats

I’ve been told that it’s hard to find editable “doc” files of the original Microlite20 rules on the web any more. Some googling on my part backed this up. So I’ve created a lightly formatted file with the rules to the original Microlite20 in Word 2010 and saved it in .docx, .doc, .rtf,...
