Microlite75 2.0 Basic Draft 1 Available for Donor Download

The first draft of Microlite75 2.0 Basic is now available for download in the Donor area of Microlite20 Download Library. While this is a first draft, the game is really ready to go (except for proofreading, layout, and a final decision on how I am going to handle saving throws). The Microlite20-based level...

Plans For (Free) Microlite75 2.0 Games

Plans For (Free) Microlite75 2.0 Games

You are probably asking what is Microlite75 2.0? The first version of Microlite75 was published during the same period as Microlite74 2.0 and was Microlite74 plus my house rules from the 0e era (late 1970s). The “75” in the name came from 1975 — the year I first played D&D. When it came...

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

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...

Microlite75 2.0 or Revisiting the Microlite74 4.0 Idea

Microlite75 2.0 or Revisiting the Microlite74 4.0 Idea

After mentioning the request I had received to produce a forth edition of Microlite74 (because the current edition is over four years old) in a blog post about six weeks ago, I have received a few emails about the idea — mainly from people who really want a new edition. All of these...

Microlite81 Expanded Progress Report

Microlite81 Expanded Progress Report

As I announced a few days ago, I’ve decided to try to push to get Microlite81 Expanded to public beta form by (or shortly after) New Year’s Day. I’ve made progress over the last few days, including two “donor releases”. I’ve updated the basic rules from the last time I did any work...

Revising the Microlite74 “Product Line”?

Revising the Microlite74 “Product Line”?

I am considering a major revision of the Microlite7x “product line”. Currently there is the basic Microlite74 game which emulates rules from the original three little booklets in the 0e boxed set using Microlite20 derived systems. Microlite74 Supplement II: Wary’s Grimoire adds emulated rules for much of the material in the 0e supplements....

Coming Soon: A New RetroRoleplaying Message Board

Coming Soon: A New RetroRoleplaying Message Board

Long time readers may remember that RetroRoleplaying once had a message board. Unfortunately, after I finished Microlite74, I did not use it much — and no one else did either. Shortly after the beginning of the year, spammers broke the spam protection and I just shut the board down rather than fight them....

Attribute Bonuses in Microlite75

Attribute Bonuses in Microlite75

I’m not happy with the huge attribute bonuses in Microlite75. The rules say to calculate by this formula: Attribute bonus = (STAT-10)/2, round toward zero. This means attribute bonuses range from -3 for a attribute of 3 to +4 for an attribute of 18. I don’t actually use this formula in my games,...

Experience in Microlite75 Monster Mash Edition

Experience in Microlite75 Monster Mash Edition

There is some discussion amongthe players in my group about experience points in the upcoming Monster Mash edition of Microlite75. About half the group wants to keep experience points like they are now in M75: Characters get Experience Points (XP) when their party defeats monsters. Experience Points (XP) = Hit Dice of defeated...
