Summer Heat Wave Fund Drive (with Old School Donor Giveaway Items)

It’s been about two and a half years since I’ve had to do a fund-raising drive to help pay for my wife’s many medical issues (oral cancer survivor, spine issues, and now multiple sclerosis). This is due to moving to a state that expanded medicaid so my wife has insurance that actually covers...

A Second Edition of Microlite78 First Edition Lite?

Microlite78 fan Robert has been at it again. While he was happy to see the digest/ebook version of Microlite78 First Edition Lite, he pointed out that i could do a version much closer to 1e now that I have more than the Microlite74 material to work with. He’s right. The original mandate for...

Microlite74: Perilous Adventures is Now Available (Free RPG)

Back in 2015, I created a special version of Microlite74 designed for my Wilderlands of High Fantasy game. It was sort of a “Basic Plus” version in that it limited itself to the original three character classes of Microlite74 Basic and the original 0e boxed set, but used the more complete/complex rules from...

Microlite78 First Edition Lite Digest/Ebook Version Released

Dungeon Delving Undying Light SRD Now Online

I’ve created a Dungeon Delving Undying Light “SRD” web site where the entire Dungeon Delving Undying Light rules are online as web pages. The site is not spectacular to look at, but it is functional and allows reading the Dungeon Delving Undying Light rules from a web browser on just about any modern...

Current RPG Design Project List (Revisited)

There have been some changes to the project list I wrote about in early February. Here goes: BX Advanced Admanantine Edition: This is still my priority. However, just the mutations material is requiring a lot of playtesting and rewriting/adjustment cycles. So I think my hope of getting this out the door by summer...
