I’m sorry to say that this blog hasn’t been very active recently. That’s because May seems to be “real life kicking me in the teeth” month. It started out with my wife getting threatened with a lawsuit (along with all the other unpaid volunteers) at an animal shelter she does volunteer work for....

Microlite74 Swords & Sorcery Progress Report

It’s time for a progress report on Microlite74 Swords & Sorcery. Theere has been more playtesting than rules writing the past couple of weeks, mainly because the real world has been keeping me very busy. However, playtesting is showing the basic rules structure is holding up fairly well. Lowering the physical and magical...

Microlite74 Swords & Sorcery: The Monster Dilemma

I’ve discovered a problem creating a Swords and Sorcery variant of Microlite74: the monster list.
